The news.

The Northern news published this morning contains some important statements. The papers state their loss at Murfreesboro' to be 30,000 in killed and wounded, and acknowledge the less of their tremendous wagon train, Lincoln has, in accordance with his promise, issued his emancipation proclamation, which has caused much ridicule. The Monitor, the "hope of the navy," as the Yankee papers called her, is reported to have gone down in a storm off Cape. Hatteras with all on board. Another account states that only thirty men were lost. She was bound for Wilmington. This report comes from Fortress Monroe, where it was received Sunday morning. It will be observed that the Federals claim a victory at Murfreesboro', and assert that Rosecrans is now in possession of the town. The latter fact is probable, as an official dispatch from Gen. Bragg announces that he has fallen back thirty miles.
