From Fredericksburg.

The public anxiety which succeeded the battle of Saturday last, has greatly subsided, and a deep feeling of gratification at its glorious result in everywhere felt. The matter which most interests the public mind now, is the whereabouts of the discomfited Yankee hosts. When McClellan was thrashed and retreated from below Richmond, it was soon known that he was skulking at Harrison's Landing, where he had the protection of his gunboats; but so mysterious has been the retreat of the redoubtable Burnside, that his sudden disappearance from our front has created a general curiosity to know where he will next turn up.

The reports from the late scene of action yesterday were somewhat contradictory. By some parties it was represented that everything was quiet, whilst others state that the enemy had reappeared on the Northern side of the Rappahannock and that during the morning there was a pretty brick infantry firing between the pickets of the two armies.
