A Federal brig of war Las ai r fed to day, and is now ljiug at anchor with the Santee. The Foreign Consuls have oommuuica- ted with the Captain of the Santee, with a view of fixing upon some point that might be respected in the bombardment., as a point of refuge for foreign subjects.

It is not in my pow- er to give you any assurance of security during the bombardment, for it is impossi- ble to tell what direction the chot and shell will take. HENRY EAGLE, Capt. commanding U. S.
