Late Northern news. We continue extract from late Northern papers received at this office: From Washington.soldiers to be buried by contract. Washington, July 2. --The existing condition of affairs forces the Government to the anomaly of inviting proposals for burying deceased soldiers for the next six months. A contract for coffins has already been awarded, and the work of interment is so extensive that the department deem it proper to relieve the soldiers from that service and assign it to the civil service under contract. The rumors of war.[Cor. Of the N. Y. Express.] Sunday exceeded in magnitude and excitement anything which has transpired for some months past. The sympathetic sympathisers with secession were full of marvellous stories of battles, rumors, defeats, Stonewall Jack son's advance to Richmond, &c. The Department either had no news, or would give none out; and the former was probably true, as the wires were either out or not working well.
