Latest from Florida.

The following official dispatch, received at the War Department yesterday, explains more fully the victory obtained by our forces in Florida on Saturday last:

Charleston, Feb. 23.--2.15 P. M.
To Gen. S. Cooper:
The latest reports from Gen. Finegan give no particulars of the victory at Occum Pond, except that he has taken all of the enemy's artillery, some five or six hundred stand of small arms already collected, and that the roads for three miles are strewed with the enemy's dead and wounded.
