Verify the new alternator is ok, have a local auto part store test it for you. a lot of rebuilt alternators are faulty out of the box. If Ok, time to check the wiring.

If the alternator is good, check the bigger wire from the alternator for continuity, there probably a fuse-able link in the wire that may be burnt out.
