From Pensacola and Vicinity.

--The Greenville (A .) formerly the Penasco a Observer, of the 28th, has received some intelligence from Pensacola and Vicinity. Up to Monday last the breaking up of the road extended for about twenty four miles from Pensacola. Our on the road below are in good and uncomplaining spirits in their labor of removing the heavy irons though there are many cases of measles and mumps among the new companies — no serious sickness, however, in that whole division of the army — On Friday morning the 11th, there were 2000 Yankees in the city of Pensacola, ld's a regiment e ding . Since that time other troops have been landed, and in all probability there are now about 000 troops in P ns and its vicinity, come of whom occasionally cour the country as far up as Cakfield five miles dis ant from Pensacola. On the 20th, six of Capt Carpenter's cavalry, after a slight skirm so, cap ed three prisoners near the Perdid river back of Barranca, They belonged to the N artillery. One of them was wounded in the arm. They were sent to Mobile. Nobody hart on our side. At Fort Barrancas there are six guns mounted and pointed landward. The notoriously in tenuous Billy Wileon and his levish Zanaver have gone to Milton, from which place we suppose they will attempt to advance into the interio , if such be the our boys will have a chance of demonstrating the kind of metal of which they are composed. Colonel T of G orgin, who has been assigned to the Alabama, is in command of that division of the army in his military ability the entire army has the most bounded confidence.
