From Fredericksburg.

[from our Own Correspondent.]
Fredericksburg, April 26, 1863.
The facts from Port Royal seem to be that on Thursday about a hundred Yankees creamed over and destroyed the solue with which some of our soldiers had been fishing and the boats, and burned five wagons carried off the mules, robbed several houses, and returned. We had only a few cavalrymen in the neighborhood. It is reported that a large force of Yankee infantry have marched through King George county, and their artillery and cavalry are seen in large numbers opposites. Fort Moyal Many citizens of King George county have been arrested, and sent to the prison ship at Aquia Creek. Among others I have the names of Col. E. T. Tayloe, W. Roy Mason, Charles Mason, Dr. Stuart, Dr. Hone, and others. Messrs. Charles Jait and Lawrence Washington of Westmoreland, were arrested previously.

No news here. The sun and wind to day have dried the roads very much. We are quiet but expectant, hopeful and confident. My private opinion still is the Yankees are leaving.
