The Amount qf Damage Done?Bragg Orders the Firing to Cmte?The Bfftct of (he Shooting on Both Sides?Fir[ Pickens Always Beady, dc. By the steamer Bbode Island, which left this placo en the 2d instant, you have been informed of' the second bombardment of Fort Pickens. Since then, tip to this date, nothing has occurred. Bragg was absent at tho time,at Mobile or thereabouts, and, taking .advantage of ug, voionei jacason, 01 me viuihui uoorgiau troops, per. milled the Snort er to come down from Pensacola to the hears at the Navy Yard, by way of a fly. No tug or toambont had attempted to m'ko a landing at the Navy Yard since the 22d of November last until New Year's day, and Jaotcaon must have been foolish t? suppose that we would allow anything of the sort, particularly when they flro at our small boats entering the harbor. Anyhow, the tug turned tail aftor being warned off in a formal manner, by having sovorol shot shoved at her, and put off for Pensacola like a scared hound. The enemy repMed to our shots st the steamor, and in a little while the batteries on both aides were firing at each other?the rebels shooting the most at first. This was about twe P. M., end the firing lasted until four A. M. o. the aesf day. The rebels fired some few more guns x then at the previous bombardment, and for ell the harm they dttftort Pickens they did not amount to much. A large number of their shells woro at-at on the island, end they fired desperately at space, or something else, for It was very hard to tell what the deuce they were trying te hit. Our camps outside were uninjured; end,notwithstanding socesii tried to demolish them, there were not to be found on the Island places that wore more secure from danger than these spots. About half-neat nine o'oloek in the evening flames were seen trying to eseepe Oem a large building in the Navy Yard, and ia an hour after they broke forth in greet magnificence, end with such intense brightness as to be seen at see tor nearly forty miles. These buildings wero set on fire by incendiary composition, pecked in shells end fired from Iho fort. The weather at the ume was damp and haavy, and if there had boeu a good strong wind blowing the entire yard would have goat. The houses destroyed were a large building used for a rail loft, containing a quantity Of sails and cordage, also for quarters and soma officers' dwellings, 'ibe loss was cousidcra Me. J mo n*vy laru m Doing uisiigureo grauuauy. Before we are done with it the rebels will not value u a great deal. The artlMerlets in the fort damaged some of tbo enemy's batteries considerably, scaiieritg death and destruction into two uf them at least. About six were killed, and more than that wounded, besides a gun or so knocked over. Hie bodies or the dead soldiers were taken to Pensacclu, and from tkonoc wore sent lo.MoritCory. ' The batteries were in the vicinity of tho light ic. H is to bo hoped that none of the killed wore Union men at heart, as there are plenty of such on the other si !e. Bragg, as we sii l before, was absent, but returned at three o'clock in the morning, and ordero i the tiring to cease, at the same time manifesting great displeasure at wiiat hai hapjieced on the part of his command. Koport has it that there was quite a tlare up all round?Broi g's man K 'l lay, chief engineers, ordnance ofiwSrs, and e\eryIItinfr duo.

The enemy have u<> rcns"t\ to c ngratuiate themselves upon tl'O bciubardnieiit of tlio lit, as tlielr efforts show 110 result. Tho fort shows no oilboi of their sb< t or shell that is of the slightest importance, and not rami was killed. either inside or outside, fine volun tcer was woundoii.

Yesterday brought us the Connecticut, Ericsson and chooncr Zouave?the first from New York, with sup*loe the blockading squadron; Jhc second with tbo Ninety first regiment Now York t-'tnie Volnnteo.-s, and the last from fhip Island on tlie 1Mb, and Fort Melons ?B tbo 17 lb mat. Tbo Connoi licet, Commander Maxwell Wood hull, United Bute* Navy, commanding, on the 17th inst., when off Jupiter Inlet, foil in with and look as a prize the schooner Bmiui (formerly the Onward), of Apolachicola, but now under English colors, of course, from Havana bound to St. Johns, and towed bcr to ibis port. The Kmma was commanded by Captain Marks, a citl/on *d Anixltoi>hi<*rrlA hot hfirn in former! I rut. anii hml t?rn fassongets?ono Mr. U. Kllison. of Apahtchicola; the other Mr. Jno. M. Birch, of Columbus, (leorgia. Of t?r crow of four persons but one chlnis to bs an KoglishuAn. Tho clearance of the Duma was for St. Johiu, via Nassau; but lite captain said, on being taken, In teply to tho question, "Itave you been to Nassaut" ^hat bo bad not, on account of receiving informsloxi by ibe Knrnak that there was no necessity for going tbere. The Kurnnk arrived at Ilavsna on tho 15th at aoon, aid the Emma sailed the same evening, thus proving that (he movomonta of many vessels at Havana wish' tag .to run the blockade arc regulated by news received from the neutrul port of Nassau. i The cargo of tho Emma consists of coffee, soap, fruit ' and a number of small articles, such as spool cotton, needles, <to., and yet the captain claims that he was hound to St. Johns, Nova Scotia. This may do very well to tell Ie.those who hove no brains; hut to mako any sane person believe that soap, orangce, bananas, spool cotton, noodlao, he., were being carried to Novo Scotia from Ha vono for hole is more, I think,than the captain or passesgars eon accomplish, and I am oontdent the Judgo of our Admiralty Court will And quite sufficient circumstantial evidence to sondemn the vessel end cargo end tend her row and pespongers to tho United States Hotel at Fort Warren. In searching the effects of the crew and passwgere bore was found In tho boot of ono a memorandum book, containing a description of the vessel's escape from Ap.v Bernoulli, ?uu uu uii parson ui nr. uircu was iouuu a telegraphic despatch from Colutnbua, Georgia, forwarded from Apalachlcola to Havana, tell lug Mr. Birch the Mockade was raised, and that ho could return at hie earliest convenience. It seems very singular that these two gent lemon, who acknowledge to be on their way tKitne, should take suoh a very circuitous route to reach -there. Possibly they thought that "the longest way round fll the nearest way home," but this time they were mistaken. The cargo of the Emma le very valuable, and will, do doubt, meet wttfe ready rale at thie port, and bring a I price that WUI n>*he a handsome share of prize money for I :e we the officere and crew of the Connecticut. I congratulate Commander Woodbull on hla succcaa in picking up choice morsels, and keeping out of Seconals many articles that would be of great use to the rebel*. A vessel cruising between Cape Canaveral and Cape Florida would no doubt and many of the same sort, and would do much to break up the trade that now exists between the rebel States, Havana and Nassau. The Connecticut is now alongside the government wharf coaling, and leaves tomorrow moraine ror the different station* of the finlf blockading squadron. In conversation this morning with Commander Woodhull, he Informed me that ho aaw distinctly a bag, suppoaed to contain letters, despatches, Ac., Ac., thrown overboard from the Emma. I regret exceedingly this loss, Tor the reason that, besides losing the posl. jive proof of the vessel's character, I am nnable to send copies or what would have been Interesting rebel correspondence. This morning the steamer Ericsson hauled"alongside the wharf, and the Nlnety-flrst regiment disembarked. They marched by companies, without arms, to the location of their camp, which is on the south side of the Island, near the barracoons that were erected for the accommodation of the captured Africans while on this island. The arms of this regiment are the new musket, and they remain in boxes in tbo ship's hold, but will bo served to the men in a few days. I was favorably struck with the One appearance of the men of which this regiment is composed. They present an excellent appearance, and appear more accustomed to the drill than those of the Nlntleth. Possibly they have had longer timo and more opportunity to perfect themselves. I cannot say much for the clcauiineas tf the men of either regiment ; but every allowance must be made for ten days on shipboard. I hope, now that they are here in a warm climato, whore thevo is plenty of rait, if not fresh water, they will endeavor, by free use of soap, water and clothes brushes, to bring themselves on a par with the regulars In respect to cleanliness, and soon equal them la drill and discipline also. As soon as the camps aro fairly regulated I will visit thorn, and will then be better ablo to form an opinion than I am now. The Ninety-first regiment hus'boou moro fortunate then tho Ninetieth in regard to sicki.oss. 1 am informed by tho surgeon of tho former that lie has lost none, and has but ten casus on tho sick list, and tlinv of verv Ilirht character, while tho latter have lost one at sea, two since they arrived here, and have a number yet on the eiclc list, but all In a fair way to recover. The names of those who died here are George Adams and Dewey C. Lyman; their disease, typhoid pheumonia. They were both buried with military honors in' the graveyard near tho barracks. The sick now here are in the Marine Hospital, a building adapted for tho purpose, and occupying one of the most healty and delightfnl positions ou the island. They, will be well cared lor, and will no doubt be speedily fit for duty. By the arrival of the Zouave we hear of an unfortunate rencontre between the United States steamer Huntavillo und the nailing gunboat Kitlntinny, which occurred on Friday, tho 10th inst., oft' Mobile bar. It appears that there was a denso fog at tho tlmo wben tho Hunter ilie discovered the Kittatlnny close aboard of her. Not knowing lier charuetor. and supposing her to bo a privateer, from her rig?sho is a three masted schooner?the Huutsvillo opened Are upon ho:', which wus returned by Uie Kittatlnny, ns her captain supposed the Huntsville to bo a Confederate. Several shots were exchanged before the mistake was discovered?1 am rejoiced to say without loss of life or damage to either vessel. 1 give this report as I received It from tho captain or the Zouave, who saw both vessels alter the affair. I'ossibly the olllcial account may make some change in it. A|>art from tho above, the Zouavo reports all quiet, both at felflp Island and Fort Dickens, which it must necessarily be until more fo-ce.< arrive. It will bo a mouth or six weeks, I suppose, before any important movement will be made. The appearance of the large body of troops now on tho Island, with the report that us many more are coming, has had a meet salutary edict upon those we kuow to bo secessionists. They appear to feel that their chance is st an end?that the United States inland to hold and fortify the place against all comers. Consequently they eeo the necessity of cbiiducttng themselves in a proper manner, and putting the best lace possible on ihe whole aff?ir. titill, I hope this may not savo them from th? puuishment they justly deserve for their conduct in the ilrst (if our dilliculties. 1 rejoice to hear, ns docs every loyal mm on the island, that Brigadier General Uranium is coming to command the vohiutours at this jxirt.

PROBABLE SCPEllSEDURB OF ORftERAL ETON# There is do doubt that General Stone will be depoeod, i and soother general not now named will be detailed to the command of the division at Pooleevillo. Whether this la to be dooe in conaequenoe of the letter General Stone wroto to Senator Sumner, denouncing the latter for language spoken in debate, or for other causes relating to ourrepuiso at Ball's Bluff, remains to be seen. One thing is certain, that the Oommitteo on the Conduct of the War bavo testimony in their possession prejudicial to General Stone that is not worthy of the slightost consideration, end upou which no human being should be condemned. MR. OUBLET'S SPEECH IN THE 1IOCSK. The "Onward to Richmond" cry has been rovived in the of Representatives to-day by Mr. Gurley, of . Ohio. Tho point of his speech scorns to bo to flutter the army and inuke a thrust at General MoC'loltan. He j thinks the army is ready and willing to move, and if General McClelian does not movo the army, Con' grofs ought to move General McClelian. 'Iho bad ! tasto exhibited in this deliberately prepared speech is | twi foid. First, Mr. Gurley has been informed officially, | or the knowledgo is within his grasp, of tho intentions of j the government relative to a military movement; second, j Mr. Guriey was on General Fremont's staff, and is soured | at the military authority here. Mr. Gurley will soon bavtan opportunity to distinguish himself in the Held, tr he desires, without doing it in Congress to the injury of the government and comfort of tho rebels.

He states tbr.t the enomy had arrfved in fall force and for two hours bad been attempting to shell his house, during which timo he and his family lay concealed in barrels in the-cellar. General Morroll kindly assured tlio airrightcd Sprouklin that the shells he had spoken of wero not tho shells he thought they wore, but the result of ecmo splendid practicing by GiilTln's buttery, which shells, rlthough scenting to be over the house, exploded a safe distance away.
