The enemy reported at Aquia Creek.

Passengers by the Fredericksburg train yesterday afternoon state that a rumor prevailed at Fredericksburg when the train left that the Yankeees were landing in heavy force at Aquia Creek. It is not at all improbable that the Culpeper route will be abandoned by Gen. Meade, and that whilst the favorable fall weather lasts he will attempt, by the shorter route, another advance upon Richmond.
