Victory at Fort Henry.

We make room this morning for further particulars of the naval victory achieved on last Thursday, at Fort Henry, in Tennessee. We regard it as a most important triumph, which cannot aim to prove the turning point of our arms in the suppression of the rebellion. The battle of Somerset gained for us the right flank of the enemy at Bowling Green. The capture of Fort Henry gives us the left one. With a movement now on each wing and the centre, nothing can save the rebel General Johnson, at Bowling Green, from either a precipitate retreat upon Nashville, or a certain defeat if he remains.
