From Port Hudson.

--The Yankees have started a newspaper at Port Hudson. From it the following paragraph is extracted:

‘ For some time Previous to the surrender of Port Hudson the rebel garrison subsisted on fresh mule and horse meal. In order to make this kind of "fodder" hold out it was issued by a commissary. Also, to make the meal last, cob was ground with it, and half a pound allowed to each man daily. Even this was about exhausted before the surrender was made.--The above is vouched for by officers and men whom we have conversed with.

Gen. T. W. Sherman had recovered enough from his wounds in the battles of Port Hudson to go to the North.
