From the latest Northern files received we copy such items as our lack of space will admit. The following is the latest intelligence from Sheridan:


"Harper's Ferry, September 21, 1864.
"To Hon. E. M. Stanton, Washington.
"Reliable news from the front. Our army was crossing Cedar creek yesterday at 3 P. M. No fighting. The following list of rebel generals killed and wounded is correct: Generals Rodes, Gordon, Terry, Godwin, Read, Johnson and Fitz Lee. From all I can learn, the prisoners will approximate five thousand. The indications are that the rebels will not make a stand short of Staunton. They are evidently too much demoralized to make another fight.

John D. Stevenson,
"Brigadier-General."

The schooner Mary B. Smith, which arrived at Several on Saturday, reports: "Spoke, September 7, latitude 44,40, longitude $7.50, fishing schooner William H. Lovett, of Marblehead, who reported that twenty miles to the eastward saw four or five vessels on fire; that there was a pirate on the banks, and that she (the William H. Lovett) got under weight immediately to get clear of the pirate."

The New York Herald of the 20th, speaking of Fernando Wood's speech, says: ‘"Fernando said that he was opposed to the nomination of McClellan, and went to Chicago to oppose him, because McClellan was a war man. But, on the other hand, the consistent Fernando declared that he would now support McClellan, because he felt satisfied that McClellan meant peace when he said war, and was not at all in earnest in his letter of acceptance. "’

Brigadier-General Page is to be "court-martialed" by the yankees for "spiking the guns of Fort Morgan after its surrender."

Brigadier-General Edward Harland has been assigned to the temporary command of the District of North Carolina.
