Further from Kentucky--Confirmatory Accounts of Bragg's victory.

Mobile, October 17.
--A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register from Holly Springs yesterday, says:

Lieutenant-General Pemberton has assumed command of the Department. Our burial party of 300, sent to Corinth, were seized and returned as prisoners.

The Cincinnati papers, of the 11th, are filled with accounts of the great battle between Gens. Bragg and Buell. The tenor of their account is that Buell is badly defeated and driven across the Kentucky river, and that Bragg is pursuing vigorously.

Three hundred paroled prisoners arrived here this evening.

’ [Second Dispatch.]

Chattanooga, Oct. 17.--The Rebel has the following dispatch from Lavigne, to-day:

All is uncertainty. I believe the Yankees are leaving Nashville. In addition to the above, I am satisfied there is something on hand. Letters from Bragg's army say that Buell's army is the worst whipped and most badly cut up army of the war. There is no doubt but that we gained a most glorious victory.

Mobile, Oct. 17--A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register, from Senatobia, says:

‘ Dispatches dated the 12th, from Indianapolis to the Chicago Tribune, say that intense excitement prevails there, caused by dispatches from General Boyle, saying that Gen. Bragg was in rear of Buell, marching on Louisville. He urge Gov. Morton to send him reinforcements, as there were only 2,000 troops in Louisville. The impression prevails at Louisville that Buell was badly whipped. The excitement in the city was intense. The Cincinnati Commercial, of the 13th, claims a victory, but the dispatches are very conflicting.
