Galveston, Nov. 9, via New Orleans, Nov. 15.--At half-past 3 o'clock this morning the sentinels on the steamer Rusk, saw the steamer Royal Yacht, Capt. C. Heeble, abandoned and burning, off Bolivar, in the Bay. Boats were sent to her assistance. The fire was within a few feet of her magazine, which was saved and the fire quenched. The damage was light. There were indications of a stout resistance by her crew. The cutlasses were found below deck, but the other small arms were missing. Musket balls were found imbedded in her sides. It is supposed a frigate launch neared the Yacht before it was discovered. The attacking party evidently consisted of two hundred men. The Yacht's crew numbered fifteen. The Yacht was brought in. The enemy, evidently frightened, left in a hurry.--N. O. Crescent, Nov. 15.
