Later from Vicksburg. Confirmation of the great slaughter of Yankees. Horrible stench of the dead Bodies--two gunboats sunk, &c. Mobile, May 28. --The special correspondent of the Advertiser and Register, under date of Jackson, 27th, says: Reports from below state that Banks has crossed his army at Bayou Sars. A Federal deserter confirms the reports of the carnage among the enemy at Vicksburg. --Grant sent in a flag to-day about the sick and wounded.
