we lay before our readers. The steamship Morning Star, which left New Orleans on the 29th ult., brings an account of the first day's fighting at Port Hudson. Banks commanded in person, and the fight was still going on at the time of the departure of the Morning Star. The attack commenced on the 27th, and the Herald's corresped by the Yankee letter writer as having been attended with "terrific slaughter." The attack was made by land and water, Farragut's fleet bombarding the town while Banks's columns endeavored to storm our fortifications. The leading attack was headed by Sherman, who was vigorously repulsed, and had to retire with enormous loss.until the field is won or lost." This sounds very ominous for the Yankees, and goes far to confirm our telegraphic news announcing the final and crushing defeat of Banks. The news from Vicksburg is very meagre. A telegram dated Washington, June 5, (midnight,) states that no official advices from Vicksburg have been received l
and, captured recently in Georgia, they having been demanded by the Governor of the State, under the retaliation act passed at the last session of the rebel Congress. In consequence of this refusal no more rebel officers will be released or paroled until an arrangement can be made by which all of our officers that may fall into their hands shall be released.

He and Augur have moved to and are investing Port Hudson. --But littls safety. The Chaplain of the 12th Louisiana, just from Western Louisiana, states that Smith's forces pushed those of Banks so hard at Vermillion bridge as to capture his wagon train, consisting of 900 wagons and teams. Banks came to Bayon SaraBanks came to Bayon Sara on transports from Alexandria. Yesterday the city was full of rumors, all of a good nature; but believing them to be sensational I did not telegraph them. One was that Kirby Smith had pushed on after Banks, and had crossed over at Port Hudson andBanks, and had crossed over at Port Hudson and joined his forces with these of Gardner. The report is possible; but I hardly think that Smith has yet the banks of the Mississippi. At Port Hudson Gardner has the means of transporting troops across the river, but the Federal fleets are above
