K\er it, of Ohio. B. T. ^war, of Illinois. J. E. Goods, of Indiana. 8. Adams, of Massachusetts. These men all belongod to the First I.<oulaiana regiment, and have been for the last ten months at Pensacola. They were forced to enlist at New Orleans or bo sent to jail. Fivo of them succeeded In escaplug at two o'clock on the night of February 10; the two others came over afterwai da. They escaped in a boat and came ont of Grand Bayou, passing two sentries, who did not challenge them for the reason of their balng armed with " six shooters," and knowing what would be their fate II ally Biarm wag given. They report the First Alabama and First Louisiana regiments having gone to Mobile, and that the forco remaining at Pcnsacola does not exceed three thousand men. Your correspondent received per Philadelphia a letter from Fort Pickens, which gives the following information :?" Four contrabands came over to-day, and report that many of the guns from Fort MacRue and the batteries opposite have been taken within the past three days down to Mobile, and most cf the troops huve gone th?re. Tho Fifteenth Mississippi regiment and a light battery left for Tennessee this work. They (Bragg) evidently thinke Porter is bound for Mobile." All the above information goes to prove that the rebels are abandoning in haste their line of works at Pens&cola, deeming them of minor Importance, and are concentrating sit their available force in the vicinity of Mobile. It would not aurprise me to hear at any moment that all of them bad loft Penaacola, and that the place was once more in our hands. 1 have no doubt they will destroy all that is left before leaving; but I do not think Forts Mo Roe and Barrancas will be blown up on account of the scat city of powder with them, for they dare not expend :i pound unnecessarily. A vury short time, however, will work wonders on the Gulf, and I am Inclined to think a few weeks will show Florida clear of rebels and rebellion. The mortar fleet aro now all here and would have sailed this morning,only there Is not a breath of wiud. Wo had a dno breeze during the night, and ut six o'clock this morning a gun front the flagship (Harriet 1 or") j;uvu the order to "prepare to get under weigh," but it leil calm soon after, and now they arc " whistling Tor a breeze." I will no doubt in my noxt be able to describe their departure, and give a complete list of officers and vessels. Tliey will pn sent a very beautiful sight leaving the harbor. May good lack attend all their operations. The K. R. Cuyler is ordered to report hero to Flag Officer MrKean, and will, no doubt, form part of tho eastern division of tho Guif squadron. In all probability many of the purchased vessels will bo sent to this neigh borhood. leaving the regularly constructed men-of-war to operate whore their services are most neuded. Further reports by tbo deserters at l'ort Pickens say that provisions of all kinds are very scarce. Nothing is received over the l'eu.sacola and Montgomery Uuilmud, and in a littlo while all, troops included, will be on tho verge of starvation. Almost everything used in 1'onsncola comes from a distance, for the country around is nothing more than a pino barren, cot capable of raising anything. If they are forgotten by tlvse of thc int-rioi, they must,from necessity, very soon yield or evacuate the piece. Tho United Slates steamer South Carolina and the prize steamer Magnolia have arrived from Ship Island. The former is on her way North for repairs, and the latter to be turned over to the United S*a-ci Marshal at this point. Tho Maguolia, if sold here, rh mid be purchased by the government for use iu this military department. i-he is of very light draught, very fast, and cue accommodate one thousand men readily. She would be luvuluablo h're to General Urannan, and I do not believe the government could replace her for twice what she will bring at public sale. There are on board the Magnolia,as near ns can lie ascertained, about one thousand mid (lay bales or e.otton, and I understand the parties in New Orleans wfto purchased her for tbo venture paid for her over one hundred thousand dollars. The officers and crew are on board the Sonth Carolina, and will be sent. North by the Rhode Island. It : coins that her owners wore desirous that she should reach Havana before tho news arrived there of the disasters to the rebel cause m Tennessee, wishing to obtain the lugh prices that havo heretofore ruled thero; hut tho capture destroys their fomloet. ho|s<w. snd b.v desiring too much they havo lest all.

Caption f. M Chapman, commander of lho above mon tinned sehnower, reports thai on tha 1st Inst, he fell m with the Vermont in latitude forty degrees thirty minotes, longitude rtxty-roven degrees fifty minutes. Tlia Varment was flrirn signal guu* and rockets, evidently in great distress. laplaiu Chapman immediately changed ilia etniraa of bis vessel, and steered fir the disabled chip, which be reached Ina ,-hort time and boarded. Me found the Vermont la a ve y perilous condition, with rudder lost and sails blown away, drilling away at tho mercy of wind ami tide. At the requestor Captain Augustus S. Il*M* in, iouimauiier of the Vermont, captain Chap, mm lay by the frigate, ami assisted in the work of netting things to rights on board the dlgabl-d vasel. lies ides tlia rudder and sails, the anchor, anchor chain and three boots hsd been swept away by the storm, and a I the furniture between decks was loosened and ca-t about <n every direction, going lo ruju. All hniida were busily at work repairing the damage done to the ship ru d furniture, and afl-r considerable labor new sai'n ware rigged out and other deficiencies made up for. ( plain Chapman kept his ?choouer by the Vermont for six days, until March ?, when he set sail f.?r New Yotk and reached bore on Monday srentng. When hs lert aTaira wero a mors st > ournglng appearsnes. Hi# Vermont was "tight" and in an easy condition. The sailors had broken up seme of the topmast*, and were making every effort to rig out something as a iiibstituto for the lost rudder. Captain Chapman considers that thn Vermont has proved herself a splendid sen boat, and he has no doubt that, If ll*? sailors sncr ed In con trwctlng s rudder, tho vessel w ill roach some p,,rt In aiety. At the time he left tho Vermont w is tn latitude 08 deg. 45 mln , longitude OS dog. 08 rain., or about 400 miles east of Capo Homy. irhs was ou tho edge of thn Culf HI ream, which would diift her in a southerly direction towards thw Azores. An immense supply of provisions was on board tbe frigate, so (list no apprehension need be entertained on that score. During one >f the storms Cant.

Early yosterday mornings small sail boat arrived at Xowports News wharf, containing two men and a woman, who represented that they supposed the piece to be in tho possession of tne Confederate foroee, and wanted to sell some produce and establish a store. They were soon informed of their mistake, much to-their chagrin, and wore conveyed to tho lioailquarters of Gen. Uansfleld. They were brought horn by thn express tins afternoon and taken before Gen.

After tne parly had discovered their mistake tliny represented that they were Unionists, who lisd lor some time past beon endeavoring to c?capo; but their first story i>: of course more probable.
