From Pensacola.

A dispatch was received on yesterday afternoon, in official quarters, from General Bragg, and dated on the 2nd inst., in which he stated that Fort Pickens opened on a Confederate-steamer on the day previous and that the Confederate batteries replied, and firing from both sides continued all day. No vessels were engaged, and no casualties occurred on our side.

General Anderson was in command, as General Bragg was absent, but the latter returned very early on yesterday morning.

The Federals did not renew the attack on yesterday, and our guns were silent.
