Brilliant affair — attack on gunboats — Capture of artillery and prisoners. Mobile, October 12 --The following dispatch has been received by Lieutenant-General Taylor, who sent it to the Tribune for publication: "Three Yankee gunboats and four transports were up the river yesterday as far as Eastport. They landed two thousand men and three pieces of artillery. "Lieutenant-Colonel Kelly, with Forrest's old command (the Twelfth Tennessee), surprised the enemy, capturing three guns, twenty-five prisoners, and thirty horses. "Two hundred of the Yankees were drowned in attempting to re-embark on their boats. The first shot from our batteries penetrated the boiler of one of the transports, and many men were scalded and burnt to death. The boats have gone down the river. Our victory was complete.
