ed by a member of Congress yesterday, date at Atlanta, Ga., April 7th: "Private dispatches to as say that we have gained the most complete victory of the war. We have driven the enemy to their transports. We have 5,000 prisoners. One of Gen. Hindman's leg was shot off Gen. Breckinridge won immortal honor; his clothes were shot off, and two horses were killed under him. Gen. Pienties and other Generals are among the prisoners."
