From the Border.

There was an nows of speculation, received from the army near Fredericksburg yesterday. It was rumored in camp that the Federal army had returned to Alexandria, with a view to take up winter quarters at that point.

The Central train brought down from Staunton, last evening twenty four Yankee prisoners, whose capture by Capt. McNeill, is Hardy county, we have here Store noticed. Among the party was the Pierpont sheriff of Barbour county, who we liars, has been very active in carrying out the honest of his Yankee masters in that county, and in collecting revenue from the people to support the hireling of Lincoln in their crusade upon the loyal citizens of the Northwest.
