From the Border.

For the past two days there has been an almost entire absence of news from the army on the Rappahannock. We are named that matters continue quiet, with no immediate prospect of a change.

From, what we can gather from those who have recently arrived from the Valley, we are satisfied that the enemy is rapidly reconstructing the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad between Martinsburg and Harper's Ferry. The road west of Martinsburg has been in running condition for the past two weeks, It is with a view to the protection of this road that Winchester is now occupied by the Federal forces.
