From Pensacola.

--From the Pensacola correspondence of the 12th inst., to the Mobile Advertiser and Register, we take the subjoined extracts:

A brig, supposed to have been a prize to the fleet, sailed to-day to the eastward. She had been lying for two days near the Mississippi steamer.

Mr. Abraham's men are still at work on the new hotel going up on the island. It is a large building, and will probably serve as hospital, custom-house and post-office. Billy Wilson and men, it is jocosely said, have sent word to the proprietor that on the opening day of his bar he wants himself and men ‘"counted in."’ The regulars will stand a poor chance among these rascals.

Ellsworth's and Powell's new accommodation line form Hollywood is doing a fine business. Passengers by this line leaving Mobile at four o'clock in the afternoon arrive here next morning at eight o'clock.

There has been no addition to the fleet for the last twenty-four-hours. This morning nine vessels, among them four little steamers, were in sight.
