The enemy in Caillou Island.

--We copy the following from the Lafourche (Thibodaux, La.) Union, of the 23d ult.:

Not more than a fortnight ago. Mr. Douglas, who keeps the lighthouse on Timballer island, reported, it is said, that he had seen two or three war vessels standing off in the direction of what is generally known among our fishermen as the Belle Pass. The news comes to he this week that a number of Lincolnites have landed on Caillou island, killing cattle and committing other depressions.

For some weeks past no one has resided on the island--Mr. Faugi, who has had charge of the property on the island, having, for prudential reasons, deemed it best to put into practice the saying that ‘"discretion is the better part of valor,"’ and migrated with his family to the mainland. The number of cattle roaming about Caillou Island was large, and owned by the Thibodanx family and Judge Barras, who have summer residences on the island.
