There is no news of interest from Havana. The California fr-ver had commenced raging there, in I will, in all probability, for some time to come, until the young and enterprising portion of (he inhabitants and transient residents are disposed of. Among the passengers by this ship, is a Mr. Gilmun, direct from San Francisco, via the Isih-mus, who brings $1,500 worth of gold, specimens from ihe wet and dry " diggins;" he left San Francisco on the 10th of December. Our previous accounts from that place are to the 25ih of December. Mr. Gilman's news is, therefore, quite old. It will be recollected that Mr. Atherton left San Francisco on the 10th. The steamship California sail&d fro n Panama on the 2d ultimo. She carried nearly one million of dollars in specie. The b?irk Templeton left Chagres for New Yotk on the 14th of February, in nompany with a brigantine, name uuknown. The Templeton curried out the surveying party, and arrived at Cnagtfti on the 6th ult. The i>arty had proceeded up the river and encamped nvar Gorgon a.

The steamer Crescent City arrived at this port oa the 1 4ih, after a short and delightful passage of ntne days, all on boa'd in good health and spirits. The Fa t ?n arrived on the same day, having sailed five da)S before us, only touching at Havana oa ber passage duwn. Immediately on our arrival, a committee of six, previously appointed at a meeting held by the passengers, were sent on shore lo procure canoes tor the conveyance ot the baggage belonging to our passengers to Gorgona. This was done lor the purpose of having union and to prevent competition among ourselves; also to prevent imposition being practiced upon us by the Bharks cn shore. And here let me advise all persons landing here, to act together, for in union there is ctrength. Appoint a commut e in whom you can repose confidence, abide by their decisions, and y<u will get along far better than when all parties or persons act for themselves. Our committee made au ag'eenirnt with a Mr. ltamos to convey the baggage belonging to the passenger*, 0*05 in numner.) to Gorgona. for the round sum oi ? dioiauce 43 miles Tuts was a veibal ugreeiui-nt, made in the presence of all ike committee and the first officer of the Crescent city. The next morning, a'ler our committee had left for Goignna, Ramos retueea to fulfil his rug element -declared to those left behind iba' he h id mide no such ag-eeme-nt wiili our c mnMt-e; but that if we could piudnee h written bantam to that etfeit, bearing ins signature, why he would abide by it. Tnm our passengers wrie thrown upon the tender mercies of this man. The manly and decided stand taken by Capta'n Smddard against thisKimos, no doubt saved all from being perfectly fleeced; as ii wa*, they had enouuh ol it. The writer ot ihis saw one partv pay $400 for a single cin?e to Gorgona. While defending his passengers against ihese impo-itions, Captain Stoddard wis afk?.d by Ramos why he took such an Interest in the mstteil His reply was that they were his countrymen and passengers, and sooner than me them thus imposed upon, he would arm hiscre-v and take the town.
