TH NO. 5371. Our Panama Correspond* nee. C'haorxs, Jan. 17,1849. Wrecks?Arrival of the California, #c. The biig Othello, Captain Dariogton, trom New Orleans, went on shore about the 20th November; cargo moet'y saved ; vessel gone to pieces. There are now at Panama about 800 to 400 pas" sengera The passengers on the Crescent City, or a large number ol them, bought a schooner at Panama, nod started tor San Francisco last week. 20th?1 have just received news from Panama. Tne California arrived on the 16th ; she will take all the passengers having tickets trom Howlaad &c Asomwall, and sail about the 23d. The ship Philadelphia, now lying at Panama, with coal, will discharge her cargo immediately, and take all the passengers remaining. Captain Foibes expects to return from San Francisco in about one month from the ttme he leaves here, say the 26th February. The Isthmus Ho ate. Mr. Editor? Sir?In your paper of this morning. I saw a communication lrom Mr. liranch, dated at Panama, Jan. 12, 1849. He says at that time the sickness was dreudlully fatal between that place and Cnagres, and that manjr ot 'he passengers that had arrived trom the various ports were lying sick at Chagies. I think, sir, that Mr. Branch is greatly misinformed. At the time Mr. Branch says they were sick at Chagres, I happened to be there, and 1 deny it. There was not a single passenger sick in the town, and during the time I was there, up to the 23d January, there waa none sick, and every one spoke of it as being all a humbug about the sickness, and thrown out to blind the people, and turn the tide of emigration round the Horn. This, I know, has been done in many instances. I know all the Isthmus'passengers anived safe across at Panama, for Lieu'enant Lanman met them there, ai.d told me there was little or no sickness at Cruces. I am aware there was sickness at Panama, as there were many people there?six or seven hundred?and our people are very imprudent there. The Isthmus' passengers spent in Kiagston, in one night and one day, $4,200. No wonder when at Panama, then, there was some sickness. But with proper prudence, there is no danger of sickness at Chagres, or going across the Isthmus during the dry season. Mr. Bianch says, the Governor and suit left Panama h r Chagres, on the 13th, and, I think, he and all Mb suit must have died on rhe road, as none of them ever arrived at Chagres. About so many dying in the canoes is all humbug, as 1 saw people every day at Chagres from Panama, aud I refute it entirely. Capt. Tucker, of the Orus, went across; the clerk of the Isthmus went as far as Cruces ; Lieutenant Lanman came across, and was passenger with me. They all told me it waa healtny, arid there was no sickness of any account at Cruces. As regards the quarantine at Chagres, up to the time I left, no vessel had laid quarantine. My bill of health from New York, was all they required to admit the vessel, and they had no fears from any port except New Orleans. As for the snakes ana alligators, the passengers had shot them all long before Mr. Branch wrote bis letter, which he was not aware of. I am positive that ibe best route to go to San Francisco is by the way of Chagres; and were I going tomorrow, I should not once think of taking any other. I have no interest in this thing myself; but I have been injured by the false reports that were published last December, and I feel it my duty to warn others from being misled as I have been. Yours truly, J. Gladding, Late master of brig C. ?. Piatt. thk population of chagres. Mew York, Thursday Morning. Mr. Editor t Please correct a mistake which I see in my commuuication about Chagres. Chagres contains in the town 600 inhabitants, and the suburbs 1500. Cruces has more houses than Chagres, but not so msny people. In running the line from the shore to the vessel, it ought to read, make a guess,.and not a "grip" of it. All sailors understand what a guess line is, but we have not a "grip*' line in our dictionary. A Sailor. The Steamer Oras, At a meeting of the passengers of steamer Orus, ofl' Chagres, held January 13th, 1849, the following resolution was unanimously adopted, and that a copy be presented to Captain B.

A letter received here yesterday from Mr. I. C. Woods, (formerly of the firm of Allen & Woods in ihis city) dated at San Francisco. December25th, corroborates the statements which have been published of the lawless spirit prevailing at that place, and says, " robberies and murders are of honrly occurrrence." Mr. W. sailed from this port in the fall of 1847, in the schooner Sagadahock, as owner and supercargo, with an assorted cargo, on a trading expedition to the South Seas. He was at Honolulu witn nis vessel and moat ot the outward cargo in October laet, and took on board pasarngeis for San Francisco. On his arrival at the latter port he disposed of his cargo at a hs&d* some profit, and obtained a charter Tor his vessel at $2,COO per month. He adds:?" I have made a succetsful voyage, and have entered into engagements SB supercat go on board of an English brig bound to the Sandwich Isianda, where I intend to spend the winter months, and return to San Francisco in the spring." Another letter received here from Capt. Netcher, late of ship Maine, of Fairhaven, (wrecked in Columbia river, Oregon, in August last,) dated at San Francisco, December 3, states that he is engaged in running a launch and trading upon the Sacramento river.

It numbers 70 members, who 1 have paid into their treasury $7,700, leaving $13,300 to be paid on the first Saturday in March. j LOUISIANA. The Mazatlan Rangers, who sailed from New , Orleans in the steamship Fanny, had arrived at , Corpus Cbristi, and were to leave on the 29th ult. for California. They had obtained an outfit, and , were lurniahed with surveyors to pilot them as far . as El Paso del Norte. They were to croBs the \ Rio Granae near that point, and then strike off for , the head waters of the Gila, and to follow the { route down that stream. ( INC1DKNTS OP EMIGRATION. it hss been rumored that, among the gentlemen who have gone to California, are two or three who were ewiog small sums to their tailors and others. > S< me color is given to the report by an incident, which took place on the sailing of the Duxbury 1 last week. One of the passengers, on hurrying to the whart to get on board, saw the familiar lace 1 of a sheriff's officer, who was evidently on the look 1 out lor him. Heft was a check-mate indeed. What was to be done 7 In twenty minutes the ship would be under way. How should the un- I happy passenger escape the lynx-eyed vigilance of 1 the agent or the law 1 .Perplexed in the extreme ? he rushed into a friend's store, and frankly told him hia dilemma. "What shall I do 1" he asked ; 1 "the passengers are all on board, and if I miss this 1 chance of going to California I am ruined. Can't 1 you do something lor me 1 Hark ! they will be j ott in ten minutes!" The friend thus appealed to looked around his store, then pulled down a large sugar box from & neigboring pile,pointed to it, and said laconically, "Get in! Quica ! No rtiatter if it is sticky. Get in, I say; or go, and be arrested!" Thus imperatively urged, the passenger made hinn eeli small as possible, and ensconced himself in ths box The cover was nailed on with businesslike rapidity by his friend, who pushed down the head and arms of the struggling inmate with very little ceremony? for time was somewhat precious. Having nailed him snugly down, he seized his maiking pot, wrote the words "Medicine?this side up with care," upon the box, called a hand, caitman, tipped him a wink, and gave him half a dollar, to hurry the precious consignment on board the Duxbury. The handcart arrived just as ths last rope that bound the ship to terra firma was to be 1 cast on. The sheriff's officer, who was pacing the wharf in the futile attempt to keep warm, glanced carelessly ut the box and continued his strides. An unexpected obstacle now occurred. The mate refused to receive the box, not believing that it belonged on board. But after a variety of winks and blinks from the handcartman, he began to understand the dodge, and the "medicine ox" was carefully carried on beard, " this side up." Of the scene that transpired on its being opened we as yet have no account; but the sberifl's i officer continued to shiver and kick his heels on i the wharf till the Duxbury was out of mgfet, and I then he retired disconsolate heme, little suspecting ] what a trick had been played upon htm?Button < Trantcript. < Phtladxlhia, Feb. 16, 1849. j / High School Commenctmtnt. i The High School commencement took plnce yea- ' tcrday morning at the Musical Fund Hall, and at- J traded thither more than sufficient of ladies and j children to fill the saloon, too many tickets having j b*en issued.

W YO [NG EDITION?SATUI COflH AND ClNTUL AMEKK'A, MEXICO, kC , in 1848.?In Brazil matters have not yat been satisfactorily adjusted. In Caraccaa serious disturbances have taken place, and many Senators been killed in the Senate House; a civil war ensued between the two rival Generals. In Mara lqiuu, bcvb uk pcrsruuiiun luwarus b?mr oruisd subjects rendered the presence of a British ship of war necessary, which, alter some little difficulty, soon satisfactorily arranged the differences. The interference of an armed British fore? at the M< squito Territory was also found requisite. Yucatan continues in a disturbed state. The war between Mexico and the United States has terminated, and a treaty been entered into, by which California and New Mexico have been ceded to the United Stales, for which a large indemnity was to bt paid to Mexico. The latter republic continues in a wretched state. A company has uadaiSakm to open a canal across the Isthmus of Panama, to be completed in twqyears; and another company is about to form a railway across the isthmus of Acapulco. The discovery of gold on the banks and in the beds of some of the ri vera in California has caused vast numbers of persona to proceed to that country from the United States, in the hope of becoming rich without much trouble ur risk. Should their views not be reilized in this particular, one good effect will be accomplished; many of the idle and pioffigate will have left the United States, who will assist in populating that newly acquired territory. in ine niiiian ivorin American provinces, mings have continued in a peaceable state. The government ot the E&il ot Elgin, in Canada, gives satisfaction. In New Brunswick, the free trade scheme meets with much opposition. Some changes have taken place in the Legislative Council of Nova Scotia, and a new constitution hnn heen granted to Newfoundland. The British West India Colonies are at the lowest ebb oi wretchedness, occasioned partly by Lhe failure oi the banks, but principally by the equalization of the duties on sugar in England. Jamaica his suffered more than any other. The Demerarians are in open opposition to the colonial cffice, with regard to the salaries of their aublic officers; the duties on importations are in abeyance. Antigua, St. Kitts, and Nevia have been visited hy a severe and destructive hurricane. The yellow fever has commuted great ravages among the troops at Barbados. In the French islands of Martinique and Guadaloupe, ^slavery has been abolished; and, under the Hbtrti\ tfrahti, fraterniti system, the recently emancipated committed the most horrid atrocities in the white inhabitants. All the latter that could were leaving the islands. The slaves in the Danish Islands of Santa Cruz md St. Thomas have also been set free: in the ormer . they committed some outrages, which iniuced the authorities to anticipate the period of heir freedom as authorized by the Danish government. In the Spanish Islands of Cuba and Porto Rico much discontent haa been manifested against the parent State?Spain. Cuba seems retiless and dissatisfied, and a wish has been expressed tor a union with some other government. The slaves at Porto Rico have been in open revolt. Emancipation must sooner or later be granted by Spain to the slaves in these Islands. The republic oi Hsyti has had its troubles extended to open revolts, accompanied by profuse shedding of blood. Comparative quiet at present reigns there, but it seems like the quiet which precedes the eruption of a volcano. The Bahamas have had some domestic difficultiesf but it would appear that a change is about to take place, which may remedy the evils complained of. Turk's Islands have now become a separate dependency, and a resident President has been a ppointed. We wish them success under their new constitution. We now, however, turn to (he spot ot our Dwn happy and peaceful residence, and extensively'patronized occupation, with feelings of the deepest interest and liveliest excitement. We rejoice that our adopted country has not only been spared Irom any signal infliction of Divine wrath, but has been permitted rather to advance prosperously and hsp-.ly. The agricultural interests continue to improve, and the commerce of the country keeps its even tenor. The defences of these islands are advancing?demonstrating the great importance attached by the mother country to the colony. The deepening of the entrance to the harbor of St. George is progressing most favorably ; the removal of the impediments to the free ingress anu egress to and from the Great Sound baa been commenced and is earned on with mnch spirit and determination by our gallant and venerable naval commander-in-chief, the Earl of Dundenald. The increase ot steam communication with our island is a matter of much thankfulness, and we expect ere long to see it still farther extended.? Bnmuda Gaztltt, Jan. 2. Hibtory Corrected?Among the guests at the Bar dinner, on Saturday night, was Col. Braxton Brogg, whose services on the held of Buena Vista, and in other Mexican battles, have won him so much lenown. On being toasted, the colonel made a neat reply, in which he took occasion to speak modestly of his own individualclaims, and enlogized in the highest terms the materials of the anny, the rank and file, by whom our battles were won, lor which their leaders carry off so exclusively the whole of the glory. In the course ot these remarks, Col. Bragg corrected the popular story, which associated his name so much with the political campaign of late summer, during which he figured in so , nnny pictures with a scroll, upon which was' oainted the celebrated order said to have been given him by General Taylor at Buena Vista?"A ltlle more grape, Captain Bragg." The colonel tstedthis as a fancy sketch altogether?no such occurrence took place on the field of battle, and the first tl? hotttrl flf this fornniio nrdor tuna hu papers Irom the United States. He added that many ;vents and much reputation, as they exist in the popular mind here, had no other origin than this same nventive faculty o! the press and its correspondents. We are not repeating Col. Bragg's speech, only re!?ning tp its substance, and we must add, that he look the opportunity ot showing the absurdity of he clamor, often raised in this country about the longer to our republic from a standing army. He rave some good reasons why there was ;IO danger from the ambition of Gegi-nils, or from any combi"I'tun of the army, in fiivor of the advancement of any man, to the Presidency, or to supreme civil power. He instanced the late Presidential election, in which the army was nearly equally divided, as to their predilections, between the commanding general ana a civilian, and that on party grounds; snd added, as proof of the distinction ohsetved in the army between military and civil affurs, that General Scott, whom he described in warm terms as a military commander of the highest genius, had no popularity as a candidate lor the Presidency, while tnree-fourths of the army would select him before aM men else, to head a great military enterprise. These remarks were heard with attention, and the gallant speaker warmly applauded. At a later pern d in the evening, Col. Bragg was again, called forth, as we sre told, and gave some very inters siingaetails of the campaign in Mexico, particularly of the battle of 13uena Vista?Mobile Journal, Jan 22.

Suicidz op a Communist.?A most melancholy case ol suicide occurred on Sunday evening last, about six o'clock, in the house No. 108 Dauphine street, between St. Louis and Conti streets, in which a medical man, named Juan ftovira, a native ot Catalonia, in Old Spain, aged about twenty-nine years, put a period to his existence with a piBtol shot, blowing the back part ot the skull completely off. The deceased had been heretolore a member of the Communist Society, ot which Mr. Cabet was the apostle, and was physician to the community. He left his own country at an early age, and, going to France, became aa enthusiast in the cause ot communism. From thence he sailed to this port for Icaria, the new LI Dorado, in Texas. It is stated that he wrote his will about five o'clock, on the evening cn which he committed the deadful act, which left a young and beautiful wife and a fine little boy without a protector. He also wrote three letters, (all the decumentsare in Spanish, and are in the hands of Judge Beverly lor the present.) one to Mr. Cabet, which will, in accordance with the wish ol the deceased be published in the journals of the city, m a lew days, which letter, from all we can learn, was written in a strong, condemnatory strain ot mr uucuunui coiimiuuiDin, mu ui uie causes 01 iailure in the late a Hair under the leader ot the society, (M. Cabet;) a aeeond letter was directed to hiB lneod, M. Celestin Pichou;and a third to his cvusin, at present in this city, in order that it might be transmitted to his father. The two latter, it is said, contain hia reasons in full tor the committal of the rash act. His wife was standing at the street door, with her boy in her arms, wn?n she heard the report of the pistol, and, turning round, saw him a lifeless corpse. He was standing by the chimney-piece when he fell. He placd the pistol (a single barrel,) which must have been heavily loaded, with the muzzle under the lower part ot the right ear, pointing upwards, and blew nearly the whole of tne back part of the skull of!. One of the small bullets lodged in the sate near the hre-piace, and the math of another was perceptible in the wall near it. The chimney-piece and wall adjacent to it were bespattered with his brains. Another pistol was beside him on the chimney-piece, loaded to the muzzle. This pistol is forthcoming. The one with which he committed ihe fatal deeaj was carried away amid the excitement consequent on the act. The deceased had been sick ol fever since the return of the members of the socisiy to New Orleans, and was heard to express himself " as tired of life." He told a friend, a tew days before he committed the fatal act, that " he though to live to thirty years of age, but that hs feared ne never could. ?N. O. 1'tUa, Ftb. fl. An Intebestinq Incident.?The delegation of Chippewa chiefs and warriors were shown around ihe caprtcl on Friday by their intelligent agent and interpieter, Major J. B. Martell. They frequently expressed their wonder and admiration at the extent and grandeur of the building, and the splendid paintings strongly attracted their attention. From the capitol they proceeded to the Btatue of Washington, followed by a crowd of ladies and gentlemen. They went up to the front of the statue, and gazed at it for some minutes, with looks of deep interest depicted upon their painted faces ; then sitting down facing the statue, one of the chiefs, O-ska-ba-wies, tilled his splendid pipe of peace and held it out towards the statue,saying:? " 1.1 y Great Father, we all (hake hands with you ; we nave travelled a long way through the great country that yon acquired for your people by the aid of the Great Spirit. Vour people have become very great?our people have become very small; may the Great Spirit, ';rho gave you success, now protect us, and grant us the favor we ask of our Great Father wno now fills the high place first occupied by you."

Mr. Miller ?u a farmer, residing at what la called " Trimming Square," ft emftU collection of housee two mlloa from Hempstead, on the Jamaica road His bene* *H ft bout three quarters of ft mile from the turnpike, and some twenty or thirty rods from the public Una. It wfts an old, lonesome boose, ftnd yet cheerful enough, too. In summer, fer It was embowered nmld shrubbery nd trees. Miller owned It. end the farm connected with It He Is ft mftn in the neighborhood ol forty years old. and is well liked by his neighbors,bearing a good name fer Industry, honesty, and the ether usual virtues of a Long Island farmer, than which no class of persons in the land, or in any part of the world, possesses ft higher average of exoelleaoe. It must have been in 1839, that the following occurrences took place : ? 3 here was a negro man, a young giant af a fellow, working from place to plaoe, around Trimming Square; nil Ka aw as as aa*?aal dlewAwaau^l low lUkla Uaeawlae Mr. M., among other*, had employed the negro en hie ferm He, too. bad loet tome article* by toe thief. By and by the depredation* of the latter, or, at any rate, be waa universally enppoeedto bathe criminal, beoamx *o troubleec me that the neighbor* took him up; and, at? *ort of patrlarohcal a**emblage of them, It was deolded to give the negro a round dogging. Mr. Miller waa one who seemed most willing to this punishment At any rate, the negro was tied up and whipped ; and then started off, with a general warning front all hand* neeer to eeme In the neighborhood again. He went over to the North Side," somewhere along the shore of the Sound, and, from time to time, obtained work there. Either he was a most malignant and feroelous negro which is most likely, from the facts as they earns out a', the time, or he was wrongfully charged with some of the thefts, and brooded over them and his Ignominious punishment, till he determined on vengeance. The most of his bitterness was toward Mr. Miller. His threats were mad* so violently that some of Mr. M.'s friends sent him word from ' the North Side," and advised him to be on his guard against violence. Miller accordingly kept arms In his bedroom at night, and adopted otnsr precautions. The negi.o appeared at the village of Jamaloa one night about 10 o'olook. It was a fine, olear, moonlight night. He seised on a wagon, attached to which was a fine horse, tied at a poet In front of one of the publlo houses in Jamaica lie drove on along the Hempstead road to Trimming 8qusre, down the lane-stopping at a lone place oeoupted by two poor superannuated old women, whom he frightened literally half to death? and then, somewhere about ene o'olook at night, tied the horse at the head of Mr. Miller's own lane, and went down to the house. As Is ouitomary in very many Long Island farmhouter, the ordinary doors of Mr. Miller's residence, particularly the door of the kitchen, which was adjoining his bedroom, were usually left unlocked, even during the night. This partloular night, however, It happened by n pure accident, to have the bolt up. It was afterward* supposed that the negro intended to have entered the kitchen door?being familiar with the way- and aecompllrh hi* murderous purposes. In the dsad heur of the night, the moon shining with great brilliancy. Miller and his wife were awakened by their little girl, who. In spasms of terror, told them that there was a man at the window. Miller jumped up Immediately and sprang for his gun. There sure enough, at the e Indow, stood that stalworth oreature, and la his hand a heavy olnb. He was looking ateadily into the room. The startled family within could see him, with his olub. very olearly. Mr. MUler celled tn the negro, and asked him what he wanted ihere,at that time. The negro made no reply. Mr. Miller then told him to be off, that ha had a loaded gun. and would shoot him, unless hs went eff forthwith. The negTo, however, neither moved nor spoke, but stood, with his elub by his side, looking fiercely Into the room. Mr Miller then told him that he would^lv* him two minutes to go, and, If he didn't go in that time, he wonid shoot him down. Still the fellow neither moved, in offeno* or away. The two minutes elapsed, and a little more beside, and than Mr. Miller fired. The terrified family had a few moment* of awfnl inspen**, then; for it the fire had missed Ita objeot, or I only wounded him partially, their situation was like to be a critical one. The negro wontd have dashed In the window and beaten them down with his olnb. When the smoke cleared away, tbera stood that durky form still. He had not stirred, and made no show of being hnrt. In a few moments, however, hs sunk down heavily upou tbe ground beneath the window. Bevtral minutes more passed away. Mr. Miller walked to ue '/indow, and aaw, to all appearanoe, tbe lifelessbody. Unknowing what to do, and with the solemn and terrifying circumstances of the case around him, he told hie wife that their neareat neighbor! mutt be routed, and either he or ahe mmt go and call them. The nearest houae waa aome ninety or a hundred rod! Mra. Miller aaid tbat ahe couldn't atay there, If her butband went; and tbat ahe would go heraelf. So ahe etatted. When ahe got to the lane ahe waa alarmed by aeelng the horeeand wagon, and the dread of aome confederate!. She had alao to go through the weodt, to reach tbe heme; and one enn Imagine what a journey ahe bad, ahort aa It waa. The people came, and. on examining the body of the neg^a, which lay where It had fallen, It was found tbat he w'aa dead Mr Miher Invited the Investigation of the authorities; but, by the prompt and perfectly unanimous voice of all and every one, he waa fully justified?aa every human being will justify biui yet. lie and bla family still sontlnued to live In the house ? and the associations of the fearful which It doubtless had, must have become deadened by time. The little girl, mentioned previously, was atfeoted worst by the event of tbe night visit Her nerves were completely unstrung for many seasons after. She was pale and pining, and the sudden rustling of a pleoe of payer, or any equally trifling matter, would oompletely unnerve bar. In this last moat heart-wringing calamity, words were but mockery aa expressions or sympathy to tbs frienda of the dead woman and her children ; and we forbear tbe utteranoe of them. Tbe full particulars of tke fire, and the death of the wife and family, have net yet reached ua. Should It be proved, or approach to probability, tbat the premises were criminally set on fire, it la not unlikely tbat suspicion will lean toward 1 be near eenneetions of tbe negro whose freaks we have narrated.?

A serious difficulty was apprehended in the Legislature of the Island. A letter published on the 26ta of December hvMr. Wiiitelock, n member ot the Assembly, stated t.'at a hill reported to the Council as having passed the I louse, was not the bill reported by him; and that in reporting it to the Council, there was" an attempt to take advantage ot an error or a forgery." The Conncil considered themselves aggrieved by the charge, and demanded reparation. This ihe Assembly refused to hiuhe, and thelrc wqb a prospect ol disunoin between the two branches of the Legislature. Indeed the Journal says, "collision is now all but inevitable. The consequence is that legislation will be br? ught to a stand still, and the session terminate disastrously asd unsatisfactorily." A personal difficulty arose in the House of Assembly on the 25th ult., between two members, Dr. Morales and Mr. Jackson. A challenge was sent afterwards by Dr. Morales to Mr. J., but hefore a meeting could be brought about, the parties were arrested, and bound over to keep the peace. We take the following items of news from the Journal of Jan.29ih:?
