From Mississippi.

--We have received a copy of the Mississippian, of Tuesday evening, which contains but little fuller particulars than we have already published of events in that direction. It says:

‘ We learn from a gentleman who arrived from Vicksburg last night that the most stubborn battle of the series around that devoted place took place on Saturday, in which the Federal were repulsed with terrible slaughter, our boys literally piling up their dead in heaps.

We have news from the Yazoo up to yesterday morning. The Yankee gunboats were reported as having left Yazoo City. Four steamers were sunk in the Yazoo by order of Capt. I. N. Brown, of the Confederate Navy--the Scotland, Golden Age, and two others.--All other steamers in the river are safe. Our forces have evacuated Fort Pemberton, bringing off all the guns safely.

The Mississippian repeats the reports we have already received respecting the capture of Helena by Marmaduke, which has reached Jackson through three distinct channels.
