The Second day's fight.The following is a copy of an official dispatch: ‘ O' Banonville, (near Pensacola,) 6 o'clock, P. M. Nov. 23.--The bombardment has just ceased. It continued throughout the day, very deliberately, on both sides. We kept the ships at respectful distance, and Fort McRae has not suffered. Yesterday's damage has been mostly repaired. Col. Villepeigue is wounded in the arm by a fragment of a shell, but maintains his post manfully in command at Fort McRae. The town of Warrington is now on fire from hot shot. The Navy-Yard is not much damaged. There has not been a casualty during the day. Our troops are in the highest spirits, and our difficulty is to restrain them. Braxton Bragg. ’
