From North Alabama.

--Our latest news from North Alabama is, that Logan's corps occupies Huntsville and the adjacent country. Colonel Mead, of Jackson county, and Captain Johnson, of Madison county, burnt the railroad bridge over Paint Rock river about the 16th or 18th of January. The enemy are reported to have burnt every house in Guntersville but six. We have confirmation, also, of the intelligence that, in retaliation for Captain Johnson's guerrillas having killed four of their men, the Yankees had burnt every house in Vienna, near Paint Rock river, but a church and a widow's house, and every residence and out-house of every description from Vienna to within four miles of Huntsville.
