SAN ANTONIO, TEX., Dec. 9. -- At length Lieutenant Young's detachment of the Eighth Cavalry has been heard from. It will be remembered that about three weeks ago Young started on a scout into Mexico with the view of tracing a party of cattle thieves and marauders which had been preying upon the Texans. Some anxiety was felt here it at the untrepid scout had met with an overpowering force, and had been driven westward.
