From Trans Mississippi.

Mobile, April 25.
--Western dispatches confirm the defeat of Banks on the 14th and 15th at Grand Ecore, losing 4,500 prisoners with their camp equipage.

On the 18th eleven boats carrying Federal wounded passed Bonnet Carie. Reinforcements were going from New Orleans to Baton Rouge.

Banks was at Natchitoches, his army demoralized. Taylor well up and pressing him.

The Yazoo Valley is clear of Yankees.

A fire here to-day destroyed ten frame houses. Loss severe.
