From Pensacola.

Augusta, Ga., Oct. 16.
--Pensacola intelligence to the 13th inst. has been received. It is announced that a flag of truce was sent from Fort Pickens to Gen. Bragg on yesterday, stating that the prisoners would be sent to New York on Sunday. Gen. Bragg sent the Paymaster over to pay off the men in full for the remainder of their term.

[The above dispatch is not as explicit as could be desired, but the inference is that the prisoners on each side have been paroled and exchanged; and hence the object in returning to New York the paroled Federal prisoners. taken by the Confederate troops on Santa Rosa Island.]
