The raid on Pollard. Mobile, December 19, 1864. --The Yankee raiders from Pensacola to Pollard destroyed all public and some private buildings, damaged the road inconsiderably, and the bridge over the Escambia was partly destroyed. Captain Henry Pope, quartermaster, was captured. A few negroes were stolen. --Yesterday our forces pursued them. A portion of their supplies and transportation were captured. The road was strewn with their dead. There was an infantry force of another raiding party near Good's mills and Pensacola. Sunday, its advance was met by our cavalry and driven back several miles. Captain Semmes arrived here yesterday from Europe, via Matamoras.
