On Saturday morning, about 7 o'clock, a small schooner sailing under a flag of truce, anchored opposite the city, and dispatched a messenger to the city who stated that General Arnold, commanding at Fort Pickens, was aboard the schooner and writhed to see the Mayor. Mr. Bobe replied to the messenger that he had an office in the city, and if General Arnold wished to see him he could call there. Arnold then dispatch two Lieutenants to the Mayor to demment buildings in the city of Pensacola, also to the steamers at the wharf. The scene was grand, thrilling, and sublime. The whole boy was as light as mid-day, while the murky clouds overhead reflected back an apparently liquid sea of fire.

n relating to late events, and the destruction of public property. I take this opportunity to say that any abusive or disrespectful conduct from mobs or other parties in this town towards the persons belonging to the naval vessels of the United States, will be treated as an inimical act, and will be resisted as if it was assault and battery. No one need fear any interference with their rights or property, as long as they conform to good order. Very respectfully,Your ob't serv't, D.ed there, he took his departure late on last Saturday evening. We can but hope that those who have remained will deport themselves as true and loyal Confederates, and suffer martyrdom rather than take the rotten oath of allegiance to the United States.

Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, Francis B. Boes,Mayor, In reply to Mr. Bobe, Porser addressed him a note, stating that he was unwell, (drunk we suppose,) and that he would confer a favor upon him by visiting him on board the steamer Harriet Lane.

Our boys, not relishing the compliment, instantly returned from one or two smooth bore 44's and 33's which quickly cleared the ramparts of Pickens of all sight seers. Whether anybody was "hurt,"is not known. Pickens seemed to be, and must have been, perfectly ignorant of our movements, and from the heaviness of its fire was in a paroxysm of wrath and rage. The task of dismantling the forts and batteries, and the removal of everything worth transporting, even to small bits of copper and lead, in the face and very teeth of t he enemy, was one of a most difficult and delicate nature. This has been most admirably executed by Gen Jones. The Federal can now take possession of an unhospitable and beach.
