Northern news Via Manassas.

the late Federal victory in Kentucky Insisted on — Confederate Flag used as curtains in the Federal Nary Department-- over the Port Royal victory — John Cocheane's speech, &c.



Manassas, Nov. 8.
--We have received here he Washington city Star, of Nov. 14, and I end you a brief synopsis of some of the points of news.

The Star insists on the accuracy of the Federal report announcing a brilliant victory near Piketon, Ky., but changes the of the triumphs to Prestonsburg. It says that the number of prisoners is 7,000 instead of 1,000, and that Generals Williams and Howe are among the prisoners. The Confederates' it reports to be quite four hundred.--This report is evidently for Northern consumption.

The flags captured at Port Royal are now in use as curtains in the Navy Department

It states that the Confederate force on the Eastern Shore of Maryland has been increased about 1,000, and that Gen. Dix has sent a Federal force to destroy them.

It says it has reason to believe that Gen. Johnston has concentrated at Winchester 14,000 Confederate troops.

The Secretary of the navy has directed that national salute be fired from each Navy-Yard throughout the United States, progressive of the high of the country at the capture of Port Royal.

Fifteen thousand more troops will be immediately dispatched to reinforce Gen. Sherman's command in South Carolina.

Col. John Cochrane delivered in address to his regiment on the 13th, in which he said, "We should use every means in our power to subdue the rebellion. We should take their bottom and sell it or burn it, as might be best, and seize their arms and minions of war — confiscate their property, and, when necessary, take their lives; and as their slaves are used as an element of strength against us, we should not hesitate to take them, and if necessary, to place arms in their hands, that they might assist in establishing the rights of a common humanely." [John is certainly getting very desperate.] Senator Cameton, and other prominent individuals were present, and they ad warmly cheered, John's speech.

The Star publishes the "Address to the Carolinian" issued by Gen. Sherman on taking cossession of the forts at Port Royal. It is after the Santa Ana style, and would be complete if the of "God and Liberty" was affixed to.
