The very latest.

The American, in its evening edition of the 3d inst., gives the following dispatches:

‘ A special dispatch to the New York Herald, dated Hamburg, 2d, says: ‘"The battle at Gettysburg to-day was fierce and bloody, and from all I can gather the rebel army has received its mortal wound. Cannon small arms and the field, are among the trophies. A column of rebels, 25,000 strong, passed through Dillsbury yesterday in the direction of Gettysburg."’

Albany, July 2.--A dispatch from Gov. Curtin to Gov. Seymour was received to-day stating that the battle at Gettysburg had not been decisive, and asking him to send all the troops he could raise without delay, as the need for them was pressing.

Philadelphia, July 3.--Parties arriving here from Gettysburg say that on Wednesday 10,000 of our troops were engaged with 30,000 of the enemy. During Wednesday night 75,000 men of Gen. Meade a troops came up and took favorable positions, while 25,000 other Union troops were near at hand. The rebels had mainly concentrated near Gettysburg on Wednesday night, and there is little doubt but the great battle of yesterday would involve every available man in both armies.

State of affairs in Baltimore--American flags to be displayed — the Moreland Club Dispersed.

Gen Schenck had issued an order that every "loyal" citizen of Baltimore should, on the 4th of July, display upon his house an U. S. flag from 10 A. M. until 6 P. M. He issued an order the day before, seizing all the arms of any sort in the possession of the citizens.

Gen. Schenck also, on Thursday, closed the "Maryland Club House." The American says it was the rendezvous of the elite of secession in Baltimore, and was so exclusive that in six years only 352 visitors had been admitted there. Among them were Vallandigham, Voorhies, John C. Breckinridge, Marquis of Harlington, Bright of Indiana, and R. T. Merrick of Chicago. Among the members of the Club were Wm Key Heward, S. Teackle Wallis, H. B. Latrobe, and others. A military guard was placed by the Yankees over the building. Several bundles of Vallandigham a speeches were found in the building.

Dispatch from Rosecrans announcing — the occupation of Tullahoma.

The Washington papers publish the following telegram from Gen. Rosecrans:

‘ Headquarters, Tullahoma, Tenn., July 1. --I telegraphed you on Monday the occupation of Shelbyville and Manchester. On Monday it rained hard all day, rendering the roads impassable. It was found impossible to move our artillery or get our troops into position until this morning, when a general advance was ordered at daylight.

Gen. Thomas yesterday made a reconnaissance on two roads, and Gen. McCock on one road, reporting the enemy in force at this place, with the addition of Buckner a division, which arrived Monday evening.

On advancing this morning it was found that the enemy had fled in haste last night, much demoralized. Their strong fortifications, a small quantity of stores, and three siege guns in our possession.

They took the direction of Winchester.--Gen. Thomas should be on their right flank to night. Gena. Sheridan and Brennan marched into town to-day at 11½ o'clock, taking a few prisoners. W. S. Rosecrans, Major General.

[A telegram from Atlanta, Ga., in another column of the Dispatch, dated the 3d instant, says that Rosecrans is falling back and Bragg re-occupying Tullahoma in heavy force.]
