Matters on the Border.

Yesterday during the day a report was circulated on the streets that the enemy, in large force, had appeared on the Rappahannock opposite Port Royal. Passengers by the train last night assure us that there is no foundation for the statement, and that everything is quiet at usual.

From the Valley country there is no news, except a repetition of the old story that the enemy are committing every species of depredation, and loading it over the inhabitants with remorseless severity. Reports represent that they are robbing the farmers of their supply of meat for the year, and taking whatever they desire for the support of their hireling soldiery.
