Yankee Vertion of the affair at Galveston — the repulse at Vicksburg, &c.



Fredericksburg Jan. 14.
--Northern dates of the 12th inst. have been received. The news is unimportant. An arrival from New Orleans brings the Yankee version of the capture of the Harriet Lane, and blowing up of the flag-ship Westfield, with Commander Renshaw and most of the crew. The Harriet Lane was captured after all the officers, including Captain Wainwright and Lieut. Lee and all the crew--one hundred and thirty, all told — had been killed by musketry from the rebel steamers. Only one or two officers and twelve or fifteen of the crew escaped death. All the Yankee fleet was on its way to New Orleans.

The National Advocate, at New Orleans, has been suppressed for publishing rebel reports of victories at Memphis and Vicksburg, and Jeff. Davis's speech at Jackson.

Three negro regiments are doing garrison duty in Forts Jackson, St. Phillip and Pike.

Rear Admiral Farregut was about to attack Fort Hudson.

A dispatch from Caito, dated 11th says General Sherman's repulse at Vicksburg was complete. The entire force, under the direction of Gen. McClernand, Saturday on transports closely planed by the rebel advance. The Yankee loss is reported at six hundred killed, fifteen hundred wounded and one thousand missing.

The steamer Mussleman was burned by guerilllas at Bradley's Landing ten miles above Memphis, on the 8th instant.
