A Curious Mistake.

--A recent dispatch from Pensacola says:

‘ "The folk of Pensacola were rather surprised this morning at finding in the Montgomery Mail an account of the occupation of the main land, opposite the city, by the Federalists; said report being furnished them by a citizen of this place. The history of that ‘"occupation"’ is nothing more nor less than the drifting ashore on Town Point last week of a pirogue, containing a solitary oysterman, and he drunk as blazes on ten- inch whiskey."
