--The Savannah Republican, of this morning, says that a party of Confederates visited Tybee on Wednesday night and burned the light-house.
The Federal vessels commenced a fierce shelling on the Island, but the Confederates retreated unhurt.
Sixteen or eighteen vessels were in the roads yesterday afternoon, and all apparently were old whalers.
