are over eight thousand negroes hiding in the

Mann was at tbe rebel ruard-hnuae at W..
rlngton during tbe bombardment. He says
wben Fort Piokens opened on the rebels in tbe
navy yard a regiment of Mississippi troops were
oa morning parade. Tbe attack was wholly
unexpected by the rebel soldiers, and wben the
firing commenced they broke ranks, and despite
all the entreaties of their officers retreated In
double-quick time, throwing away their rifles,
blankets and equipments. . . .
During tbe bombardment the Union shot and
shell dismounted tbree guns In Fort McRae, and
breached it In several places, so tbat the rebels
found It nntenantable and consequently evacu
ated it. Tbe buildings in the Navy Yard were
all perforated with ahots, and tbe village of
Warrington was entirely destroyed.
Mann is of tbe opinion tbat bad tbe bombard
ment been followed by tbe landing of Union
troops on tbe enemy'e soil, their efforts eonld
not but have been attended with success, so
thoroughly were the rebels demoralized, He
says there are many Union men at Pensacola,
who are perforce in tbe rebel army, and only
wait in the hope of a speedy deliverance by tbe
landing of Union troops.
