t the enemy, in considerable force of cavalry and artillery, have crossed the Upper Rappahannock at Kelley's Ford, in Culpeper county. The presumption is that they contemplate an advance upon Cordonsville. Kelley's Ford is some dutiness from Fredericksburg and much farther from Richmond than the latter point, so that this movement cannot be regarded as an advance of the grand army.

To be sent away. --Three hundred and nineteen Yankee prisoners will be sent under flag of truce this morning to City Point. Of this number one hundred and ninety-two are prisoners of war, and one hundred and twenty-seven citizens or civil prisoners. Among the latter are Edwin Dorsey, son of Dr. Dorsey, and John J. Humas, a State Senator from Maryland, captured by Gen. Stuart when he made his raid into Pennsylvania. Included in the list of citizen prisoners are also a number of renegades from Tennessee and Kentucky, some of whom were arrested for bridge burning, engine stealing, and similar crimes in the States named. The departure of these prisoners will relieve the Confederate Government of a considerable item of expense.
