From Fredericksburg.

We have the same report to make this morning of the position of affairs at Fredericksburg that has been daily given to our readers for the past week. Everything is represented as in a state of fraction the enemy desisting from any formidable demonstration, and our own troops quietly and patiently awaiting the movements of their opponents. How long this state of things will continue it is impossible to say, but most probably until Burnside is urged forward by the irresistible pressure of Northern fanaticism. The report that a portion of the enemy's forces had moved up the Rappahannock some eighteen miles, in the direction of Warrenton Junction, is not confirmed by any information received yesterday.
