Surrender of Island No. Ten.

At last we have the joyful intelligence that the rebels have evacuated Island No. Ten, and that it is now in the possession of our army. The event occurred on Monday night, in the midst of storm and darkness, after a severe conflict during the whole day, from the gunboats and batteries above and below the Island. The amount of rebel stores, arms, cannon, gunboats, together with prisoners, etc., etc., taken by our army, is not definitely stated, but it must be immense. Gen. Pope and Commodore Foote have accomplished a glorious work but we trust it will be followed up and the entire army bagged or scattered. The word is now "down the RIVER to New Orleans."
