Victories in Mississippi.

Osterbans defeated at the big Black — Gen Banks routed at Port Hudson.



Jackson, Miss, July 7.
--Gen. Loring attacked Gen. Osterhaus yesterday, near Edwards's Depot, this side of the Big Black, and after 'three hours' hard fighting drove him across the river. Our loss is reported heavy.

An officer from the vicinity of Port Hudson says Gen Dick Taylor crossed the Mississippi, under cover of our guns, last Saturday. He and Gardner then attacked Banks and routed him with heavy loss. They are both marching to reinforce Johnston.

There has been nothing further received regarding the fall of Vicksburg.
