The Brooklyn's destination.

A dispatch from Washington says:

Colonel Hayne received a telegraphic dispatch last evening from Governor Pickens.-- Everything was quiet and peaceful. They had heard of the departure of the steamer Brooklyn for the South with United States troops, which caused considerable excitement. The authorities accordingly telegraphed to ex-President Tyler to ascertain the facts, and whether any reinforcements had been sent by Government to Fort Sumter. Ex-President Tyler addressed a note to the President asking him whether reinforcements had been sent to Fort Sumter. The President in his reply said he was not aware that any reinforcements had been sent there. He did not give the ex-President, however, any information respecting the movements of the Brooklyn. The destination of the Brooklyn is supposed to be Fort Pickens.
