From Fredericksburg.

All that we heard yesterday from this town, upon which is centred the great interest of the war, was that all was quiet to a late hour in the day. There were reports that the enemy were leaving their position opposite the town, and as no active movement has taken place in front of our lines, it is not improbable that their forces are being withdrawn for embarkation at Aquia creek. The condition of our men is spoken of as being good, and it is likely that Burnside was not eager to risk a fight with the army he found confronting him. The concentrated effort of the enemy will no doubt be made from the South side.
