Latest from the North. The Baltimore Gazette, of the 14th instant, has been received. It contains very little of interest. A telegram from Washington states that a considerable body of Confederates shelled Gen. Kilpatrick's camp, near Stevensburg, on Thursday last, from which fact it is argued that at least some rebels remained on the north side of the Rapidan. The New Orleans Era, of the 4th, states that the Confederates attacked Washburn's advance on the 3d inst, driving it towards the main body. The Confederates were soon checked, it is said, and in turn were driven back, with the loss of 200 prisoners. The Federal loss was forty killed. The New Orleans correspondent of the New York Express says that the Federal forces had fallen back to New Iberia. Gold in New York at the second board on Friday was quoted at 147 3-8--an advance.
Assault and battery. --Ash Levy and M. A. Levy were brought before the Mayor yesterday, charged with assaulting and beating John K. Berry, on the 14th inst.

Against Harvey there was not a particle of evidence, and he was therefore discharged.

Ten Kentucky cavalry regiments have been mustered out of service, and a draft made on each county for a company by Gov. Bramlette.
The London times on Confederate military movements. --The London Times, of the 26th ult., has an editorial on the late military operations of the Confederate commanders, resulting in the defeat of Rosecrans and the retreat of Meade. It says: In these last operations in Tennessee and Virginia the Confederate commanders have displayed a degree of military skill and a power of combining their force that the Federals have never been able to attain. The armies of General Lee and General Bragg, in Georgia and Northern Virginia, were more than four hundred miles apart in a straight line. Yet they cooperated with and supported each other with as much celeray as if they were engaged in one operation. A whole corps has been taken from one and added to the other with facility as great as if the main bodies had only been separated by the distance of a day's march. The immense advantage of railroads for the purposes of war has never yet been so signally proved as by the transfer o
