--A correspondent at Pensacola
writes, under date of the 14th:
Vessels of war are continually arriving and departing in the fleet.
On Thursday there were two large frigates and a sloop-of-war outside, one of them engaged most of the day in landing men. I notice but one there now. I am inclined to think that we will have some hot times shortly, or else we must undergo a great deal of humiliation and mortification.
We had a magnificent party on Thursday night last, on the steamer Time
, while lying at the wharf idle.
There were two bands of music aboard; one was the brass band of the Seventh Alabama Regiment, stationed at the yard, and the other was composed of two violins, two guitars, and two flutes.
It was a beautiful moonlight night, and everything went off handsomely, which will always be the case whenever the inimitable and clever Lieut. Calvin Sayre
has anything to do with them.
To-night, the Mobile Continentals
and some of the Georgia
regiment give a concert for the benefit of the Ladies
' Military Aid Society.
In town, to-day, there is much excitement, caused by the affair of last night.
