Latest from the North.

Petersburg, Jan. 6.
--The Herald, of the 31st, has been received here. There is no news from the Army of the Potomac or from Charleston. News from Western Virginia, dated the 30th, says that Gen. Kelly had information from Gen. Sullivan that Gen. Early, with nine thousand rebels, was between New Market and Mount Jackson. Rosser had also some 700 cavalry, and Imboden fifteen hundred. Sullivan's column had returned to Harper's Ferry with one hundred prisoners and the same number of horses. Kelly states that he has captured in all over 400 prisoners and a large amount of property.

Gen. Thomas's dispatches from Chattanooga on Wednesday state that a rebel force under Wheeler had captured a Federal train on the 26th ult., bound to Knoxville, at Charleston, on the South bank of the Hiawassee, but that Col. Long pursued and defeated Wheeler, capturing over 100 prisoners.

Butler sneers at the threat held out in Davis's proclamation against himself and officers, and declares if a hair on the head of one of his officers or soldiers is injured, except in just warfare, the day that it is done shall be one of sorrow and mourning throughout the Confederate States.

He thinks there is but one way to meet the new state of things, and that is by the sternest retaliation. He says that the Federal Government, having exhausted every form of appeal, there is nothing left it but to authorize that a sufficient number of rebel officers be placed under such keeping, and put upon such diet as shall in all respects correspond to the treatment, as to clothing, food, and fuel, that the wretched Union men receive in the stench-houses of the rebel capital.

Gold in New York, on the 80th, ranged from 151 to 152.

Dates from the city of Mexico, to the 7th state that the French troops had entered Morella on the 30th of November. Twelve thousand French troops were at Calicya and Sulimance.

It is stated that the Government of Holland and Spain have reorganized a new Mexican Government.
