From Fredericksburg.

The passengers by the train from Fredericksburg report no change in the condition of affairs around that town. What the Federal forces may be doing between Falmouth and Aquia Creek, is, of course, only known to themselves, as the lines are strictly guarded, but it is certain they do not evince any haste in advancing on Richmond. ‘"Luck in leisure,"’ is perhaps the motto of Burnside, and he will not risk his reputation by precipitately throwing his columns across the Rappahannock.
