Victory in Louisiana.

As a partial relief from the unwelcome news which we have been receiving from the South we have now the intelligence that our forces have gained a decided victory in Louisiana. --The President yesterday received a dispatch from Lieutenant Hardee, stating that General Dick Taylor had an engagement with the enemy's forces under Banks, and that he had completely routed them, capturing 6,000 prisoners.

This report receives confirmation in a paragraph in the Baltimore Gazette, of the 28th, which states that in a fight at Donaldsonville, subsequent to the surrender of Port Hudson, the 19th Massachusetts regiment lost its whole force except one hundred and forty men.
