Later from Norfolk.

--Intelligence from Norfolk to Thursday last is received. An order had been received from Washington forbidding the departure of the flag of truce boat to Suffolk, as ordered by Gen. Barnes. With this order came another for the execution of Dr. Wright, who shot the Yankee Lieutenant, Sanborn. The community was overwhelmed with grief at this unexpected and barbarous order. The gallows was being prepared at the Fair Grounds on Thursday. Four companies of Spears's cavalry are at Bermuda Mill, four miles below Suffolk.
