From the Rappahannock.

An officer who came from Gen. Lee's headquarters at Fredericksburg yesterday morning, reports everything quiet. The Yankees gave no visible indication that they intended an advance. On Friday, it is said, one of the Yankee balloons "went up like a rocket and came down like a stick." It collapsed in air, and it is surmised that "Professor Lowe," or some other social navigator, had been used up by contact with the earth.
