From Pensacola.

--The Warrington correspondent of the Pensacola Observer writes as follows, under date of March 7th:

‘ The families are flying into the country, and preparations are being made for a severe conflict. The men are at work night and day putting the batteries in perfect order, balls are being cast in the Navy-Yard, and communication with the vessels outside is to be cut off immediately. Several families have already moved off to Mobile, New Orleans, and other places. This place looks like a place besieged.

’ Large reinforcements are looked for in the beginning of the ensuing week. The Wyandotte was notified last evening that coal and water were no longer to be obtained at the Navy-Yard. Since writing the above, the Wyandotte has entered, and is now at the Navy-Yard. I do not know what business causes her to be there; there seems to be an air of mystery prevalent.
