A letter received in this city yesterday from Gordonsville
, says that the Federal
forces, under Burnside
have all gone in the direction of Fredericksburg
From this it may be inferred that they intend a flank movement, using Fredericksburg
as a base of future operations.
An officer who left Winchester
about four days ago reports everything quiet in that locality. --There had been no advance of the enemy from Harper's Ferry
since the plundering raid of Geary
on Sunday week.
