Another Victory.

Fort Henry, on the Tennessee River has ceased to exist as a secesh fortress. This news can be relied upon, as it does not come through the New York Herald, or through any newspaper's "special." The particulars as to the killed and wounded have not reached us at this writing, but the main facts announced are that the Commanding Secesh General and his staff are prisoners at Cairo, that the bombardment lasted one hour and a half, and that "the gun boats did the work." Glory enough for one day.

Now will the Union commanders in Kentucky squat down and "fortify" for the next two months, or press on to the reduction of Columbus or Nashville? The country waits to see of what metal they are made.
