Late Northern news.

The New York Herald, of the 19th, (Tuesday,) announces that Lincoln has called for 500,000 more men. These calls amount to nothing, as he hasn't yet gotten 20,000 out of the last call for 200,000. This call, which takes effect under the draft without commutation money, will inaugurate riots not only in New York, but at the West.

Gen. Bradley Johnson is reported by Washington dispatches to have been captured near Edwards's Ferry, but recaptured again by a determined charge of his "rebels." Some of the rebels recently raiding in Maryland are reported to have gone to Gordonsville.

Five companies of Missouri militia, of Ross's regiment, had gone over to the Confederates in a body.

The Confederate "guerillas" are springing up all over Missouri, Tennessee, and all points in the West which the Yankees don't hold with a heavy force of troops. They are now before Nashville.

Gold was quoted in New York on the 18th at 262 1-2.
