The New Commander at Pensacola.

--Gen. R. H. Anderson, who, it is reported, succeeds Gen. Bragg at Pensacola, (the latter having been ordered to report for duty with the army of the Potomac,) is a graduate of the United States Military Academy in the class of 1848, and was soon after appointed Second Lieutenant First Dragoons. For gallant and meritorious conduct in an affair with the enemy at San Augusta, Mexico, August, 1848, was raised to the rank of First Lieutenant. In March, 1850 he was made Captain. Most of his service have been on the frontier, and consequently, he has had but little opportunity for distinction. At the beginning of the present invitation, Gen. Anderson resigned from the United States Army, and was appointed by Gov. Pickens Colonel of the First Regiment South Carolina Infantry, which position he held until his recent promotion to Brigadier. General by President Davis. He is a native of South Carolina.
