BIVOUAC OF REBEL TROOPS AT GENERAL BRAGG'S CAMP AT WARRINGTON, PENSACOLA.—[From A PHOTOGRAPH.]

GENERAL BRAGG'S ENCAMPMENT.

WE continue our series of Fort Pickens pictures with the accompanying view of A BIVOUAC OF CONFEDERATE TROOPS OPPOSITE PICKENS, from a photograph ; and a view of the NAVY-YARD AT PENSACOLA, from a sketch by an officer in the Fort. The steamship Vanderbilt, which has just been chartered, is now taking in guns and supplies for Fort Pickens. At latest dates there appeared to be very little prospect of a battle at Fort Pickens ; our troops were too strong and too well provided to fear any enterprises by General Bragg.

OUR FORTRESS MONROE, PICTURES.

WE dispatched a special artist to Fortress Monroe in company with Colonel Allen's Zouaves, and from his sketches we now give, on page 396, a view

of THE FORTRESS FROM A VESSEL IN THE BAY, and a view of THE HARBOR FROM FORTRESS MONROE.

Fortress Monroe, the largest fortress, indeed the only work properly entitled to that name in the United States, is now garrisoned by United States Volunteers, and Colonel Dimmick's Regulars. There must be something like 10,000 men in the

Fort and encamped in the neighborhood, under Major-General Butler. To the right of the Fortress in our picture will be seen the white tents of Colonel Duryee's and Colonel Carr's Regiments, which have been under canvas since they first landed. The small steamer in the centre of the picture is towing in a prize; the flotilla of oyster boats and other craft in the left of the picture are prizes, as also is the British vessel which has struck her top-gallant masts.

The view of the Bay shows Sewell's Point and the Rip Raps, the former held by some 5000 rebels and strongly fortified; the latter occupied by General Butler.

A FAITHFUL WIFE.

OUR special artist whom we dispatched to Fortress Monroe to sketch the movements of our army in that section, has sent us a sketch which we reproduce on page 397. The subject is best described in our artist's words: On Wednesday morning I discovered a woman on the upper deck of the steamer in the attitude represented in the sketch. She had been but a short time married, and not willing to part with her husband—a member of Colonel Allen's Zouaves—she had followed him on board. I took the chaplain (Rev. Mr. Jones) to her. He provided her with more comfortable quarters, and reported the case to Col. Allen, who has treated her, as is his way with every one, with great kindness. She now assists about the camp.
