The rebel steamer Vanderh It arrived there on the 3d, five davs from New Orleans. Cha'le* Anderson and finally arrived here on the Columbia from Havana. He is a brother of General Robert Anderson. He escaped from the hands of the rebels at San Antonio, and walked to Monterey, Mexico. He was treated with great klnduess by the Mexicans at Monterey and Taiupico, whence he sailed on the British steamer Clyde to Havana. He reports that British subjects were violently indignant at the seizure of Messrs Mason and Slidell on the steamer Trent The Clyde met the Spanish fleet within thirtysix boura' sail of Vera Cruz, with fine weather. The Mexicans were dally expecting the arrival of the allied fleet. The general feeling appeared to be hatred of Spain, all feuds giving way to the sentiment of uuited resistance to the common enemy, and a frequent remark was, that if the Spaniard" came alone they would be warmly weleomfd. No resistance," however, would be made at Vera Cruz or Tampico. The guns of the Castle San Juan d'Ulloa were being carried inland, and if any Mexican symptoms can be trusted, a most determined resistance will be made to the ariny of Spanish Invasion. From Fart 1'ukeus. Nrw York, Dec ii ?a private letter from on board the steamer Richmond, which took part in the fl_'ht at I-ort Pickens, dated Nov. *23 states that the vessels commenced bombarding Fort McRa? at 10 o'clock on the morning of trie previous day, Ihe 2yd ult The writer s'ates that he had been complimenting the captain of one of the guns on the accuracy of his aim, when a sh?ll hounded throigh our bulwarks and took the captain's head <fi'and wounded six men. The shell on exploding, raised the ship out of water and made her stagger like a drnnkfn man. Another shell burst some six feet below the water line, causing a bad leak, but the steem pumps kept the vessel free The firing' continued all day. and was resumed by the enemy next morning, when the Richmond moved out of range. The frigate Niagara still kept at them, but being outside the gunners' fire, cannot be injured much. Fort Pickens had, up to the date of the letter, lost but one man killed and seven wounded. I* ort McRae was much damaged, but we cannot destroy it with our smooth-bore guns, as thev are no match for the enemy's rilled cannons The bombardment, says the writer, was to be renewed the next day, with a determination to whip or to be whipped. The letter from which the above was taken was received per steamer Columbia from Havana. W ar News /rem Missouri. Glasgow, Mo., Dec. *.?The notorious Capt.

A party of citizens went in pursuit of them, for the purpose of recoveriug the property. Six of the latter, having got in advance of ibe balance of the party, being too few In number to continue the pursuit,were compelled toreturn. leaving the Indians to carry off their booty. In the vicinity of Albuquerque the same party of Indians have been committing depredations on a large scale. It is understood that Col. Canby is about to change the system heretofore pursued for holding tte savaevs in check. Instead of keeping the troops collected in one part, he will divide them In companies and station them at convenient points ou the frontier, from which they can make rapid pursuit after the ladluus whrn they attempt robberies.
