For Aransas. — The schooner Water Witch, Capt. Trenis, arrived at this port yesterday from the Bay of Aransas, whence she sailed on the 18th ult.  She brought no news, so far as we could learn.  The barque St. Andrew arrived on the 17th with two companies of the 8th Regiment of Infantry from Key West, and a large ship, supposed to be the Kalamazoo, was going in when Capt. Trenis sailed.
