Affairs at Pensacola.

--The Warrington correspondent of the Pensacola Observer writes, April 8th:

‘ There was a large accession to our military force yesterday; the Mississippians came in counties numbers, making the ‘"welkin ring"’ with their cheers. The steamer Tom Murray brought two cargoes, numbering about 1,100, and a schooner came done from town with about 200 on board. The arrivals, yesterday full amounted to 1,300 brave and determined men, who are resolved to rout every vestige of the aggressors, or die in the effort.

A member of the Lafayette Guards died on Friday at the Naval Hospital of congestion of the lungs. He was interred the same day.

A Zouave, who showed a determination to resist authority on Saturday morning, received a bayonet wound in the thigh, and was conveyed to the hospital immediately afterwards.

The Hon. S. R. Mallory, Secretary of the Navy of the Confederate States, passed through here on Saturday. He called on Gen. Bragg and Quartermaster O'Brannon, but remained only a short time.

Samuel Z. Gonzalez, Esq., late naval storekeeper, has been appointed Quartermaster with the rank of Major in the Marine Corps of the Confederate States.

Lieut. Ingraham, C. S. M. C., is here and has a few Marines. He is about organizing a large corps, I have been informed.

The steamer Kate Dale is anxiously looked for here. The second company of Zouaves are said to be on board. Dispatches received on Saturday evening reported her lying in the cove below Mobile, on account of bad weather.

The remains of Commodore James McIntosh were on Friday taken out of the vault in which they were deposited here, and conveyed to the family burying-ground in Georgia.
