From the Trans--Mississippi.

A gentleman who left Gen. Taylor's headquarters, on the other side of the Mississippi, on the 25th ult, informs the Mobile Advertiser that our troops hold undisputed sway of all those late conquests in Louisiana west of the Mississippi. They, as well as the people, are in fine spirits, undepressed by the fall of Vicksburg, and not only able to hold their own, but at the proper time to help us on this side the river. Gen. Magruder is fortifying at Sabine Pass, and ready to cooperate with Kirby Smith. Taylor is securing his conquests and is zealously supported by the planters, who, when Banks overrun the country, were ready to give up and take the oath. Banks scouted at their oaths and took their property. They are now fighting men and war men to the bitter end. Our informant believes that our combined forces under Price, Walker, and TaylorKirby Smith commanding the whole — will reach 50,000 men, and are increasing.
