Gen. Lee's army.

There is still a complete dearth of news from the armies of Gens. Lee and Meade. In answer to inquiries we are told that everything is quiet, and that our armies are resting after their arduous Northern campaign, with little probability of its being interrupted by the forces of the enemy.

The passengers by the Central train last night state that Mosby has again been upon the war path, and as a reward for his gallantry, succeeded in bringing out from Fauquier county about one hundred and fifty of the enemy, among them several officers.

From Fredericksburg we have the report that a considerable force of the enemy, consisting of cavalry and infantry, appeared at Stafford Store on Thursday evening. Stafford is about fifteen miles from Fredericksburg and on the road leading to Fauquier county.
