THE OCCCFATIOR OF TYPER I3LA5D BT THE _ FEDERALS The savannah Republican publishes a letter from Fort Pulaski, direct, dated Not 25, from "Ojeh we make the following extract: .Th* " 7 ?ppeared around Tyboa Point about 11 o cloek a. m yesterday. The aentinel reported them, and the assembly waa beat; we were ordered to the guns; there we awaited tfiem The enemy, oompoeed of a frigate and one gunboat, rounded the point and began to throw shot and shell on Tybee Not having received a reply, they dispatched the guaboata for more vessels. About A o'clock the gunboat came back,with two more very large vessels; soon after, a long train of small boat* waa seen to leave the veaaels and head for the shore. About 6 o'clock the Federal flag was seen flying on Tybee laland. t *C?,at7 ?'c,oc* Capt. Read, of the Irish \ olunteen, took a souad of his men and went over to the island and got in sight of the v . ? *?' V0001(1them 411 ?roucd the fire; but finding that he could not effect his object, which waa to burn the large hospital, there oeing too many men around the house, he returned and burnt all the houses on his war including Capt. King's large house, also the : Platform where the boat lands. They also brought off an old negro, the property of Mr l King, whom the picket had left, lie la now at the fort. j This morning, the Federal flsg could be seen fljmgon the lighthouse. There are three large vessels off the point now, and another gunboat has just arrived. | The island ia naturally protected by large sand hills, which could hare protected our men from the shalli of the enemy, I think a thousand men would whip them off lB two hours. The enemy have a l .?in ^ tht? ?rutbern Sutes bordering on the Atlantic, but I think they have gained "7.U'U? T "ki?? Tyb?? W..4, IV think they can get enough rice and cotton on I ly bee to pay the cost of the expedition, as they say they did at Port Royal. ' J Capt 8. has gone out to burn some fishermen s huts on the island. P'e?ty of tm?an??on and men, and Zl -,n um lv0me ran?? of our gunswe will ahow tbem the difference between taking Port Royal and Fort Pulaski. rrRTHER FROM TTBRK. From the Savannah News of the 28th we extract the following: The steamer Ida arrived from Fort Pulaski at 4 o clook, yesterday afternoon, having left J at 2 o clock. Capt. Ciroopely reports six Federal vessels still inside the bar. Five more Teasels, supposed to be transports, arrived yesterday noon, and can be seen outside the bar, ?5^>8 .#,eJen I****1" ? ? DOW in sight of r>m their m0T?n??ntB ft was thought the vessels outside would come in over the bar last evening. The veasela inside lie at anchor about four miles from the fort, and out of the reaoh of our guns. One, a large frigate, oan be seen from the Exchange and the balconies of the stores on the bluff. Between 10 and_11 o'clock yeeterday morning, a party of 1 ankee troops, armed with muskets, were observed from the fort advant-5 ? ,kC f1': towards King's landing. | Two or three round shot and shell were fired at them from the fort. When the first shell waa th. .J % "kwi prMlrated themselves on ? -ccond hei1 bun,t ?T? T7hlr0i? tQd ^ *? the ??Ter 0f ?* Wh J, ? sppeared upon the beach, out of reach of the guns of the fort. It is not knewn whether any of them were hit by our ahot and shell; but those who saw the bursting of the shell?which made the sand fly in their immediate vicinity?are under the impreeaion that they were not entirely harmlea*. THE BLOCKADKR4 OFF TH* TEXAS COAST Alt EXrHANttR OF SHOTS. We eopy the following from the Qalveston riewg: Captain A A Tomlinsen, from Velasco, informs us that about 3 p m. on Friday last, the schooner Sam Houston, cruising from the eastward, aailed to within a mile of the fort at \ elasco, and fired a 12-ponnder, the ball passing over and but a few feet above the left corner of the fort, and striking a log in the flrnLw .iP*, ,hot immediately returned from the fort by an 18-pounder, the ball paasing a httle to the leit or atern of the achooner, when she immediately turned to get oat of the way, raising the United States flag at the same time. Four other shots were fired at her from the fort, all of which were line shots, the first striking the water short of the schooner and ricocheting, and apparently hitting her; the third, fourth, and fifth shots fell short, and probably did no damage, as she was now toe far off. Af'ai*8 ard about Kertccxt.?From the Louisville Journal and other western papers we extract the following : The Calhoun, Ky., correspondent of the Journal writes, Nov. 28 : John C. Breckinridge, with several thousand of the maltreated individuals who have " loat their rights," has been maneuvering around in Logan and Butler countiea for several days E?t, bat, from some good reason known to lmself, has suddenly " retired in good order"' to Bowling Green. The " chivalry*' stationed at Hopkinsville received a rumor last week that Col. Jackson s Cavalry were advancing upon the place, and thereupon a goodly portion of them departed on "treble quick.'"' and, when last heard from, were beyond the Tennessee line. If the mere report affects them thus, what will not the reality do? The Evansnlle (Ind.) Journal oi Saturday says that a battle near Calhoun, Ky., ia imminent, and our foree there is such as to render defeat improbable, if not impossible. The Journal predicts the speedy occupation of Bowling Green by our troops, if Gen. Crittenden id successful. Gen. Buell will march forward the immense army encamped on the line of the Nashville road, and the enemy will be forced to evacuate the Green river country. The Bowling Green correspondent of the New Orleans Pioayane mate a fair statement of the case wbea he said that the position of the Confederates in Kentucky ia critical. A Pbimx Minister's Dread of tie Kind of Kiros ? Kaunits only feared one thing, and that was death; and this fear necessarily increased with years The word "small-pox" caused him a shudder, for he had been attacked by it himsalf in youth, and had seen Maria Therera on the point of death from the disease. When bis reader came to that word, or to "inoculation," or "vaccine." but, before all, "death," he had speoial orders to pass it over Se far was this carried, that strangers of distinction who arrived in Vienna were warned to yield to the Chanoellor's wishes on this point; and no allusion mast even be made to his birth-day. No one had the oourage to tell him of the death of Frederick the Great, until one of his readers said, as if inadvertently. that the ooorier had arrived from Berlin, wfth letters from King Frederick William. Wbea Joeeph II. expired! the Prince's chamberlain laid before kirn a document which should have had the Imperial sign-manual, saying ia explaaatioa: " Hit Majesty no loag er signs." The Prince was in the habit of eaadiag dishes from his table to a favorite aunt, aad this weat ea long after her decease, as no one oared fee tell him she had been dead for four years. When his eldest aad beet beloved son died, the Prince oaly heard the fact by the deep mounting laid oat for himself to wear. ?Onm a WesJt. fZr W llkle CoIIIds (e said la have bora offered ?4,000 for a story to appear In the OernhlU, to follow that whl<*h be baa oadertaksa la All the Year Round t7*All?it a bundrvd tbcuaard soldiers are nrceeaary at Naples to make headway agalnat the rmed robbers who iff thoee lilt prov- I X / -(Sfttmug Star. ? w VSi.

Po*ttand, Dec ?The steamer North American arrived here to-night with Liverpool datee to theMd alt. The rsse of the steamer* Nashville and Harvey Birch attracted great attention In England. The Nashville remained at Southampton for repairs The captain of the Harvey Birch had gone to London to consult with the American Minister. The erew of the Harvey Birch were vowing vengeance against the crew of the Nashville, because they were placed In Irons for refusing to take the oath of allegiance to the rebels. The officers of the Herv-v Birch declare that she was on soundings when the Nashville boredown upon her. Col Peyton was on board the Nashville on a mission from North Carolina, and with Commander Pegrarn had gone to London Com Pegram wants to have the Nashville made into a ship of war at Southampton, but legal difficulties have been raised. The question has been raised whether the neutrality of the Oueen's proclamation haa not been Infracted by landing prisoners of war by the Nashville. The London Times alludes to the case, and points to tbe visit of the steamer Adgsr, and saya it would be to the Interest of England to keep tbem both out of our harbors, and if this cannot be done they must both be let In alike. The London Star, although wishing the commander of the Nashville to be punished, says If he can produce a commission from tbe Confederate States, tbe government must let him go as having recognized these States aa belligerents. It is reported that tbe steamer Adriatic has been sold and is fitting out for the West Indies.

O Farrar has been appointed provost marshal general of tbe department. The commanding officer of districts, posts, and corps are directed to arrest and place in confinement all persons In arms agalnat the United States, or who give aid, assistance or encouragement to tbe enemy All property belonging to such persons, which can be used by tbe army, will be taken possession of far that purpose, and all other property will be examined by a board of officers and sold, according to the army regulations. All persons found In disguise, as pretended loyal citizens, or under false pretences, within our lines,giving Information to or communicating with the enemy, will be arrested, tried and shot as spl?p. Persons not employed or enlisted In the service of the so-called Confederate States who commit acts of hostility, will not be treated as prisoners of war, but punished as criminals and shot, or less severely punished, according to the rules of war In consequence of large numbers of Union families and non-combatants having been plundered and driven from their homes In a destitute condition, thousands of such persons are now finding their way to this city, and the provost marshals are directed to ascertain the condition of persons wbo are driven from their homes, and under the military law of retaliation, quarter them in the bouses and feed and clothe tbem at the expense of avowed secessionists, who, although they do not themselves rob and plunder, give aid and encouragement to abet and countenance such acts of their fellow-rtbels.
