The Yankees gone from Stafford.

From Fredericksburg yesterday not a Yankee was to be seen, except here and there a stray cavalry picket. They have evacuated the county of Stafford, and, besides a dozen or two scattered tents and some smouldering fires, nothing remains to show the recent presence of a large army. Of course they have moved on up the river after their companions. At the Bernard House they left some plunder, which was speedily disposed of by our soldiers. The refugees from Fredericksburg will now, it is likely, return to their homes without the prospect of being disturbed again shortly.
