Late from Louisiana.

--The last Mobile Tribune publishes the following intelligence, received from a gentleman returned from the enemy's lines in the Trans Mississippi Department:

‘ He reports that when Gen. Sherman, with his forces, 22,000 strong, had returned to Vicksburg, they there formed in two columns. One column went up Red river, to attack Alexandria; the other column went up the Ouachita river, to attack Harrisonburg. They were met by Gen. Price, who whipped them badly, said to be a Waterion defeat.

’ Our informant also confirms the report of a battle having occurred on Bayon Teche. between Gen. Banks and Gen. Dick Taylor and the defeat of the former, as was reported some days ago.

A portion of our forces, commanded by Gen Ross, had attacked Major McRae at Yazoo City, and driven him from the city and river with great loss. Both are now in our possession. The Yankee gunboats having evacuated the river, Gen. Harrison (Confederate) has swept the Mississippi line from Water pool, La, to the mouth of Red river, capturing all the leased plantations, provisions, &c, for a distance of about thirty miles from the river line.
