The victory in East Tennessee.the Yankees driven back to Knoxville. Bristol, Dec. 19. --The late raid on Salem produced intense excitement here.

They lost three steamers and four schooners, as well as a considerable amount of stores, munitions of war, and horses, while on the way, and in landing. About half the command are black troops.
