or Tuesday, and the adjournment be consummated. A considerable number of its members accepted an invitation to visit Pensacola, and on yesterday went down in the 2 o'clock train. Companies of men continue to be added to the forces of Gen. Bragg, of whose designs nothing is known, though conjectures of an early fight are quite prevalent. Officers from his camp with whom I have conversed assure me that nothing definitely can be known.-- Their mere impression is that if any battle shall be fought at all at Fort Pickens, resulting from an attack by Bragg, it is certainly not now his intention to precipitate it. The telegraph reports what is known partially to be a fact, that numerous privateer vessels organized under the act of Congress, are afloat in triumph on the waters of the Gulf and Atlantic, and that four or five prizes have been captured. Visions of ocean shrouds and watery sepulchres for their rich goods, will hereafter haunt the sordid minds of the North, w

Many officers of distinction had fallen. Col. Davis rode forward to examine the position of the enemy, and concluding that the best way to arrest our fugitives would be to mnks suffering from wounds, yet the noble fellows moved at double quick time, Bowles' little band of Indiana volunteers still acted with them.--After marching several hundred yards, they perceived the Mexican infantry advancing in three lines upon Bragg's battery, which, though entirely unprotected, held his position with a resolution worthy of his fame. The pressure upon him stimulated the Missippians. They increased their speed, and when the enemy was within one hundred yards of the battery,
