Latest from the North. Charleston, S. C. Dec. 4. --The New York Herald, of Nov. 29th, has been received here. It says Burnside did not advance because his pontoon bridges did not arrive in time. Burnside intended arresting the parties responsible for the delay. The rebels were busy fortifying the south bank of the Rappahannock, in plain view of the Unionists. The railroad between Aquia creek and the Rappahannock is completed, and trains were running on the 28th. An arrival from North Carolina announces that Newbern had been attacked by 4,000 rebels, under Gen. Martin, who were repulsed. The yellow fever had ceased at Port Royal, and active operations would soon begin in that department. Fitz John Porter's trial before Court-Martial was progressing at Washington. The Herald says McNeill, the Missouri, butcher, was merely a militia General, not a Union officer, and presumes that President Davis will therefore withdraw his threat. All the State pris

We are only in the beginning of our troubles now, with the roads converted into mud of putty consistency, and varying in depth from six inches to two feet. The once dry, and, in some places, almost parched surface of the earth, is converted into a grand plateau of streams and rivulets of dirty muddy water; rills have become brooks; brooks have become creeks, and creeks rivers, under the inundation from the clouds. An Aquia Creek correspondent of the Tribune, writing on the 22d, says: Supplies of provisions and forage for the army are landed both here and at Belle Plain — the mouth of Potomac Creek. The distance hence to Falmouth is fifteen, and from Belle Plain nine miles.--Owing to the want of a good landing at this point, most of the transports proceed to Belle Plain, whence their cargoes are hauled overland to the army. Only Franklin's grand division is supplied from this locality. If the tales of
