Latest from the North.

We have received from the Agent of the Press Association the following, copied from the Baltimore Gazette, of the 4th:

‘ The reoccupation of Brachoar City is reported from New Orleans. The Era calls it a surrender; but there were no Confederate troops there when the Federal forces arrived, and all the immense stores that were accumulated at that place by Gen. Banks, previous to his march upon Alexandria and Port Hudson, had been carried by the Confederates into the interior.

’ A Fortress Monroe dispatch says:

‘ The trial by Court Martial of Dr. Wright, of Norfolk, for the killing of a Captain of a Massachusetts company, terminated on Friday, and the finding of the Court is now in the possession of the Secretary of War. The accused was ably defended by L. H. Chandler, Esq., of Norfolk, but he has alight hopes for his client. Dr. Wright was one of the most respectable citizens of the city, and his action in the matter has caused great surprise to his many friends.

The great fire in Havana.

The steamer Meadville, from Havana on the 25th ult., has arrived at New York.

The fire at Havana was still burning in the ruins, but its progress was checked after consuming sixteen warehouses, containing 672 bales of cotton, 63,012 boxes of sugar, and large quantities of other goods, a considerable amount of which was intended to run the blockade, and slanged to Secesh English men. Their loss is estimated at over one million and a half.

The Confederate steamer Nita, with a cargo of cotton, arrived at Havana on the 234.


The following is the text of the dispatch from Gen. Forey, received by the French Minister of War:

Mexico, June 10.--I have just entered the City of Mexico at the head of the army. With a heart still agitated by the event, I address this dispatch in haste to your Excellency, to inform you that the whole population of the city received the army with an enthusiasm that bordered on delirium. The soldiers of France were literally crushed under the showers of garlands and bouquets. Only the entrance of the army into Paris on the 14th of July, 1859, when returning from Italy, can give an idea of the scene. I have been present, with all the officers of the staff, at a Te Deam, at the magnificent cathedral of this capital, that was thronged by an immense crowd. The army then, in admirable condition, defiled before me, with arise of "Vive'l Empereur!!" "Vive l Imperatrice!"

After the review I received an address from the authorities at the Palace of the Government. This population strongly desires order, justice and true liberty. In my replies to their representatives I have promised them these in the name of the Emperor

By the earliest opportunity I shall have the honor of giving you further details of this reception — unequalled in history — which has all the importance of a political event, and of which the celebrity will be enormous.
