The victory at Corinth. Our arms have just been crowned with a glorious and most important victory near Corinth, Mississippi. The particulars are yet meagre, but enough to satisfy us that the great Yankee army, under Buell, has been signally defeated by our brave Southern troops, led by Generals worthy of them and the cause. Our joy at the event is mingled with grief for the death of the commanding General, and the heavy loss of gallant Southern men who perished in the grand battle. Buell's army was large; no doubt exceeding our own in number. That General was esteemed one of the best in the Federal army.

There were only ten small steamers, in the Cumberland, in imperfect condition — only three of which were available at Nashville, while the transportation of the enemy was great. The evacuation of Bowling Green was imperatively necessary, and was ordered before and executed while the battle was being fought at Donelson. I had made every disposition for the defence of the fort by means allowed; and the troops were among the best of

Buell was not in time to take part in the action. Gen. Grant was in command of the Federal forces. Memphis, April 7.--A dispatch from Corinth, dated yesterday, were killed. General Prentiss, who was captured, says they had 35,000 men on the field are eighteen batteries, nearly all of which have been captured. Gen. Buell had a portion of his force at Duck River. We have the enemy's camp, and all their ammunition, stores, &c. The battle was a very severe one--loss on boh, command the Federals. Gen. Smith was sick. Two thousand prisoners have been taken and sent to our rear. It is reported here that our men are fighting Buell to-day. Gen. Clark and Col. Brown, of Miss., and Col. Richards, of o., were wounded. The Federals have been driven to the river, and are attempting to cr
