From the Rappahannock.

The news from our army is without interest. The spirit of the men is said to be buoyant and their condition fine.

The enemy, it would seem, hesitate to advance across the Rappahannock, the southern side of which has proved in the past to be anything, but healthy ground for their armies. The only force they now have in Culpeper county is composed of cavalry, and they hug the river closely. The main body of the Yankee army is on the north side of the river, along the Orange and Alexandria Railroad. Our pickets extend as far as Brandy Station, six miles from the river.

From Fredericksburg we have nothing new. The force of the enemy in Stafford county does not seem to be at all demonstrative.
