Glorious Irons tbe Trans-Missis sippi. Mr. Wagner, bearer of dispatches from Geo. Kirby Smith, reached Mobile on the 3rd iiist. - He states the results of the battles of the Bth and 9th on Red Riveras follows: A c(«nplete defeat of the enemy, with a loss es timated by Gen. Taylor, at eight thousand in killed, wounded and missing, but their own admiiions put their loss at fifteen thousand. We captured twenty-one pieces of artillery, ten thousand stand of small arms, twelve hundred mules, four hundred wagons, and a large quantity, of stores. Our loss is officially estimated at twenty two hundred killed and wounded. Generals Mouton and Greene were killed. Three Yan kee Generals are reported killed. The enemy's forces was thirty-two thousand. Ours from eighteen to twenty thousand. Gen. Kirby Smith directed operations. Gen. Taylor commanded the centre, and Gen. Walker and Mouton the wings. On Sunday, the 17th, the enemy attempted to cross the Red River, and were attacked a gain and whipped worse than before, but no particulars have been received. Thirty steamers ef all classes ascended the river, and were all above Alexandria, wkh no probability of escape. Ten or twelve boats were already blown op or burned to avoid capture. Mr. Wagner says soldiers and citizens re port that Price had achieved a great victory over Steele, by a bit of strategy which conr pletely fooled his adversary. General Price seemed to have fallen back in apparent disor der, abandoning everything. When the Yan kees reached his trains they broke ranks and scattered to plunder. Price turned and out them to pieces, capturing four thousand pri soners, two hundred and fifty wagons, all their ammunition, baggage aad supplies. It is reported also that Steele had evacua ted Little Rock, failing back towards the Mississippi river This statement is corroborated by Yankee accounts from the Mississippi. From the Petersburg Express. From Louisiana-Interesting Ac counts of the Recent Battles A gentleman in the service of the govern ment, who left Shreveport, La., on the 18th of April, and arrived in this city last evening, has furnished us with some valuable infor mation from the Trans-Mississippi. He cross ed the river some sixty miles below Vioks burg, and foupd the country on both sides of the Mississippi, densely ipfested with jay hawkere and Yankee negroes, who put to their test, his utmost caution and prudence. Besides despatches from General Kirby Smith, Gen. Huger, and other officer's to the autho rity in Richmond, and a private letter from F. 1. Leavenworth, Captain of Ordnance, commanding the Arsenal in Shreveport, he brings copies of the news journals of that city, from the 12th to the 15th ultimo, which contain more information regarding the con dition of that region than we have seen else where for months. From the papers and let ters above mentioned, and the oral statements of the gentleman referred to, we are permit ted to lay before our readers the following Kmmary of our late battles on Red River • The first of that series of battles occurred Mansfield, some fifty miles below Shreve* rt, on the Bth of April. For several days previous, Gen. Taylor with a handful of men. had been falling back before the advancing forces of Banks. Having his army now in creased to eight thousand by reinforcements, he resolved to make a standiand try tbe issues of battle against twepty thousand of the ene my. The fighting was fierce and obstinate, but numbers were compelled to yield to valor and the enemy was palsied and broken if not vanquished, when darkness closed the terri- Ide jiceoe. On the 9th the battle was renewed and raged with increasing fury during the day, but night did not again spread its pall orcr the battle field until the undaunted bravery, the determined purpose, and the wild enthusiasm of our noble soldiers had won a glorious victory and routed tbe foe in every part of the field. In tbe hot haste of tup enemy to escape, every encumbrance was cast off, all order broken up, and in a state ef complete disintegration, the -motly croup made their best possible speed towards Alex andria, quickened and urged on by our pur suing cavalry. They left in our hands 4,000 prisoners, (this number having already been brought tn wben oar ipformant left, and it was believed that more than twice that num ber were actually captured,) 7,000 stand of arms, and 32 pieces of artillery, besides a forge harvest of dead and wounded on the I held. We see no statement of tho number either of our lossor of that of the enemy • but the most profound and tender grief is express ed by Geo. Taylor for the death of Gen. Mou ton and for that of Gen. Thomas Green in a subsequent battle. We also lost several Col- I onels and other commissioned officers. On the 13th, occurred the battle of Blair's Landing, in which General Green was killed. In this conflict our forces were drawn up on both sides of the river, and bravely and suc cessfully fought the enemy on shore and in his gunboats, destroying several of tbe latter and capturing many prisoners, after a great slaughter. Both armies, after the first fight a*t Mansfield, were largely reinforced—ours, probably to the number of 20.000, and that of | the enemy to more than 30,000. Numbers, *■ however, availed tho foe but little, as he was vanquished at every point with great loss, un til, when our informant left, be had fallen back to a position on Red River between Alex andria and Fort De Russay, where bo lay un der cover of his gunboats—Gen. Banks him self'having retired aerese the Mississippi and established bis headquarters at Natchez. j These successes have reclaimed a large portion of Lousisiana from the pollnting tread | of the Yankees, sod rendered their tenure o( tbe remainder very difficult and precarious; they have greatly re animated aud reassued the people, and fired them with a purpose more fixed and determined than ever, never to give up the contest till the land is redeem ed and their independence firmly established.' In a word, the country is sepresented as in jpod heart, and ureil furnished with supplies.: both for subsistence and fori war. 1 The Pennsylvania troops, whose terms es pire in May, have notified the government; that-they will not obey the orders recently is sued confSttueiog them in the service until '. - From the Petersburg Express. I The Fort Pillow AHalr—Refuta tlosi of Yankee Slanders. From Gov. Isham Harris,, of Tennessee, who accompanied, and has recently reached Atlanta, in return from the expedition of Forrest into West Tennessee, tbe Confedera , cy newspaper obtains the following true vei sion of the late attack upon Fort Pillow. In view of the perverted accounts of the Yankee papers, this official narrative of the whole proceeding will be found as interesting as it is necessary to vindicate the truth of histo r y* Arriving in the vicinity of Fort Pillow, Gen. Forrest, having previously arranged his plans and issued his instructions for the at tack, rapidly advanced his lines, and gained, after a brief, sharp contest, the outer works of the enemy. Having possessed himself of this position, he threw forward a line of skir mishers in a sort of ravine between the outer ' works and the fort, which lipe was protected from the Federal sharpshooters by his reserve line in the outer-defences. Hs then sent in a flag of truce to the com mander of the garrison, demanding the un conditional surrender of tbe fort and garri son, with all the stores and munitions, stating the advantage of his position, his determina tion, to carry the fort, and announcing that if bis demand was not complied with, he did not feel certain that he, himself, would be able to control his men when they entered the fort, after having been forced to take the risks of assault. Hearing, after the note was dispatched and , before an answer to it was received, that the 1 Federals believed the demand for surrender a rasa de guerre, and that Forrest, in person, was not in command of the assailants, Gen. Forrest himself rode up within hailing dis tance, announced to the enemy in person that he was General Forrest, and verbally deman ded the surrender. A reply was sent back, couched in defiant language, declining to accede to the demand. The assault was commenced, and in five minutes after the bugle sounded tbe charge the fort was in possession of our men. Our advanced skirmishers went over the works pell-mell, all around them, each man lifting his fellow by the leg, and mounting on the shoulder of their comrades until the fort was filled with Canfederates. . Col. Booth, commanding the garrison, was the first man killed, and not an officer of the negro regiment was left alive. It is true thai a few, black and white, threw down their arms and made signs of surren der—but at the same time the men on each side of them still retained their arms and kept up a constant fire and show of resis tance. In the heat, din and confusion of a fire at subb closs quarters there was no chance for discrimination. In less than five minutes after our men scaled the esplanade, the fort was cleared of tbe enemy, tbe main body of whom fled to the edge of the river, leaving tbe fort colors still flying. At the river they .still kept up tbe fire, until the number was fearfully reduced, and until, as General For rest states himself, be absolutely sickened to witness tbe slaughter. He ordered the fir ing to cease, and dispersed his staff along the lines with orders to that effect. It was next ' to impossible to effect an immediate cessation of the firing; the enemy themselves still fight ing. General Forrest rode up and down the lines ordering the men to cease firing, and finally stopped the carnage. The survivors of | tbe garrison were all taken prisoners. , The maximum aggregate force of the Fede- j ral garrison was 800. About 500 were buried j by Gen. Forrest's men. About fifty of their j wounded -were paroled and sent upon a gun boat to Memphis. Two hundred prisoners were brought away, and among the number about 30 negroes. There is not the semblance of a shadow of truth in the Federal exaggerations of whole sale slaughter. The above are substantially the facts of the capture, coming directly and officially from the prominent actors iv the bloody drama, •-•-• Wo Victory lor Grant. A candid confession in a New Fork paper It is refreshing, says the Petersburg Ex press, to meet with at least one Northern pa per, which is not afraid to speak plainly and truthfully of affairs in tbe North. Such a pa per is the New York Daily News, a late issue of which has come into oar possession. Tbe Washington correspondent of the News says Grant has gained no victory, that his losses have been frightful, aad that'he is as far from Richmond as ever. Read the following: Washington, M>y 11, 1854. For four days we have had no end of the exciting rumors and exaggerated reports in relation to the great battles in Virginia. To day the truth begins to be known, and I am now able to send you a tolerably connected and clear statement of what has really been accomplished by our armies, and of what re maios to be done, It a well for the readers of tbe News that they have not been delnded either by the official bulletins of tbe Secreta ry of War, or with accounts of supposed vic tories, such as have appeared in some of the other papers. The simple truth is, that we have as yet gained no victory. We are as far from the objective point of the campaign, the capture of Richmond, as we were a week ago We have suffered a terrible loss in killed and wounded, abd we have dene little more than demonstrate the immense advantage which Gen, Loo enjoys in bis various defen sive positions between the Rapidaa"sad ltne Pamunkey.

We Understand that Major Peter Otey who tras severely wounded in the Into fish* near few Market, aad is now at his home in this city, speaks in very enthusiastic terms of the gUlantry*- and efficiency of the Cadets of the ?*.
