The Hew*. Tho-tcwL-hip Atlantis, from Liven>ool for this port, with four days later intelligence, has been out thirteen days, and may be expected at any moment. The tews from Nicaragua* received by the steam ttiv Daniel Webster at New Orleans, is of a highly interesting character. Tbe declaration of war Dy ?osta Rica, and its consequence", we have comment ed on in another column. Gen. Walker hid issued a proclamation stating thai the democratic party of Nicaragua had invited him to espouse their cause, and that he had endeavored to carry out the princi ples of the revolution of 1S54; that the legitimist party had resisted all efforts at conciliation, and there was no resource but war. The government of Costa Rica had issued an address calling on the peo ple of Central America to destroy the North Ame rican inraders. In the United States Senate, yesterday, the Chair ?tan of the Committee on Foreign Relations reported , joint resolution to remodel the diplomatic and con whir system of the United States, which was adopt ed The debate on the action of the Naval Retiring Board was resumed, during which warm and i>cr aonal remarks were indulged in by Senators Clayton, ?f Delaware, and Bell, of Tennessee. In the House ?f Representatives, ten thousand copies ot the Cen * rral American correspondence, together with the* between this country and C.reat Britain on the arbi tration and enlistment questions, were ordered to be Krinted.

In the State Senate yesterday a remonstrance was presented from the citizens of New York agamst the construction of wet basins in the Ea*t river; the bill for the construction of a bridge across the Hua xm river at Albany was passed: the resolution calling on the State Engineer to report what work r necessary to make Harlem river navigable, was adopted. In the Assembly nothing of public im portance occurred. Our despatch from Washington this morning ?? ?r an interesting character. Mr. Hiae, of Kentucky, had been sent for by the President, and offered the post of Minister to Nicaragua, in place of C olonel Wheeler. A Cabinet council had been held on the 4espaubes brought by the Canada, but their import was not known. General Pierce had de :1a red his intention to make no more appointments to office ruitil the Cincinnati Convention had made anomina tion. and that be was in the hands of his friends anu would abide bv their decision. The trial of the case of Giles against Flagg, foi the contested office of City Comptroller, was com menced yesterday morning, in the Supreme Court, before Judge Emott, of the Second Judicial dis trict. and a jury. Afier the opening remarks of the counsel for plaintiff, the testimony of Mr. Jason Mills, one of the principal witnesses in the case, was tak-n. His evidence was cliisfly in regard to the alleged error in the returns from the First Strict of tue Nineteenth ward, which gave Mr. Flagg 316 votes, and Mr. Giles 186. According to the plaintiff's statement, the 316 votes were given, through a mistake of the clerk, to Mr. Flagg, In stead of to Mr. Giles, thus securing the election ot thf former by a majority of 179? the total vote for Mr FUm, as appeared on the returns of the e #j?y being 20.313, while Mr. Giles received 20, DM. Tbe'report, which will be found elsewhere, gives the details. The case will be rc timed at eleven o clocK this morning. At a meeting of the Board of Almshouse Govern ors. held yesterday, William S. Duke presented nis resignation as a member of the bond, which was accepted. A ballot was immediately taken, unci Cornelius V.

A lesolution was ado?ted to increase the house -t 1 of t.h? mcdical department, and a number of nomi nations made. There are persons now under the care of the Governors, being a decrease of I ? since last wteU. George Wilson, the negro of the Eudora im> Cene notoriety, wa-< brought"^. before the Supreme Conit on habeas corpus yesterday, be being held in custody by the Un't? d States authorities on a char e of revolt. The Jud?C refused to interfere in the matter, as he wa? committed by the federal au thorities.

The insurgents at l'uebla were confined to the Ca thedral of San Augtwttn, and wore suffering for pro virions. An outbreak had taken place in Guadalajara, which ->orae two hundred persons wei* engaged, but it was supposed, it would be promptly suppres wd. Date letters from Lower California announce the discovery of new and very rich gold and silver mines, some of the products of which had already reached \a Paez. Commodore M< Keever died at the Gosport navy v*rd yesterdsv morning. Mr. Robinson, the gentleman who claims to lie Governor of Kansas, is in Washington.

The stock of pork being lees than waa ex pected, (22,460 barrels, against 47,283 on the 1st of last month, and 21,478 on lit of April, in 1856,) the market waa firmer, and closed actively, with a de cided advance; iwks sold at $16 37 a $16 56$, and some tmall lots at $16 62}, and prime at $15 25. The stock of beef waa large, and the market dulL Sugars were firmer, without change of moment in prices; the auction sale of New Orleans went ofi at full prices ? Messrs.

Important from Klcaragaaa?Wair wltliCwUi HWa?Ot-iitrtU Walker lu the ? tela. The telegraph news from New Orleans is ex ceedingly important. Col. Schlesainger h*d been escorted oat ot Costa llica, and that re public had formally declared war agaiust Ni caragua. Gen. Walker was at once in the field, at the head of a iorce of abour. si* hun dred men, and proposed to march at once against the Castle of Guamo. It is alleged that the Nicaraguan army had been reinforced by 310 Americans, making, according to th? most reliable information, an active l'orce of about sixteen hundred men. The military force ot Costa Rica is composed of 300 regu lars and 5.000 militia men. We thu? have the nominal array of the two Powers. They are in collision; au event pre cisely what, it is believed, Gen. Walker most desires. We shall now hear of the total ovtr throw ol Costa Rica and the other States ot Central America, and the establishment of a confederation nnder the auspices of the Walker men. Viewed as mere military operations, thfse events are of little consequence; but re garded in the light which is reflected orer up on them from Texas and Califcroia. they be come matters ot the proioundest interest and magnitude. No military man acquainted with tbe powers and energies of the conflicting torefs in Nicaragua and Costa Rica can fail to foretell the complete triumph Qt tne former. Tbe arrival at Granada of Major Heiss, with despatches from Washington, and of a peace ambassador from San Salvador, are significant, of the course of events in oar Cabinet, and of tbe smaller States of the Isthmus. It is pro bable. indeed, that Pierce is prepared to re cognize the Rivas government, and that Sin Salvador will be found on the side of Walter. It is, then, highly probable that within a short period, under the force of arms, the American movement will become a permanent power in the Isthmus States, which being con solidated, the left flank of Mexico will have been turned, and that republic placed literally in the hands of Anglo-Americans. The Clerct tx Politics Again ? In the New York Tribune of yesterday apoears an other letter from a clergyman, signing him self Willard Jones, on the slavery question. Like bis three thousand brethren of Missaiha *etts, this reverend Jones has the blasphemy to claim to be a special mouthpiece of Gol, and to wield the thunders ol the Almigaty against all who do not agree with him in opi nion. "Statesmen," says this reverend, -may see what seems to them the best political po licy: but the men who take God's word for their guide, see what is rigb*." Addressing the advocates o slavery in Kansas, be aids: "The Almighty, with his principles of moral government, is against you.'' Again, "God is waging a conflict with this nation, God nurk? out a line of duty, and those who walk in it and serve God occupy an honorable position:" but "those who uphold the wrong and figki against God will be like Ahab."' & rc. What the reverend Mr, Jones means by fight ing against Gcd is Cghtiug against Jones: so far a? he sees, .loces is God. and God is Jo ,< or at least they are so closely allied, and it is so utterly impossible for Tones to be wroiif in interpreting God's word, that they may oe used as convertible names. When Jones wants a thing, Jones says that God wants it; Goi declarer, if Jcnea is baffled, cr kept waiting, or otherwise annoyed, that [fe is against tho-~j who thus baffle or uunoy His servant Jones ? at least Jones says so ? and woe to the pen prs? mortals who thus -war against God" AU this is as old at least as the Oracle of Delphi. There never has been so poor a knave who could not somehow make out that God was on his side, and that his enemies were inspired by the devil. Religion, Master .(ones, had better be 1 alone by politicians. Preach it, practice i . honor it; but do not try to use it as a poll' < al argument. It cuts on both sides and on a 1 sides, and infallibly ends )>y doing most mi? chief to those who first appealed to it. At all events, if you must talk about religion and the priesthood of God, wait, for pity's r^k". till a good east wind has dissipated the tfllu via of the Cox trial. Great Wolh. ? Ve publish elsewhere tbreo great wills-that of the millionaire, Henry Parish, that of the late Nelson Robinsor, of this city, and that of a Frenchman na acl Michel, wiiich latter has been a bonne for -'um for the lasers of Paris. Mr. Parish died worth some two million;*. He left over a mil lion of dollars, including fifty thousand to charitable institutions, by various codicil f it is alleged that these codicils were mate when Mr. Parish was so enfeebled In booy as to be unable to sign his name, and the inference would arise that hiB mind was not of thettronge^t at that tiae. The Micbel will case, which involved over a hundred millions ol trance, is very curious and interesting. The testator among other pro perties, had a bond of the King of Spain (Fer dinand. of course.) for 31. 00<t. 000 francs, for which bis Majesty offered him 13,000,000 francs, payable in instalments. The miser wv, doubtless, very loth to consent to such a bar gain : but they who deal with kings must pay the ftot Michel accepted the forty or forty two cents on the dollar and starved his ser vants .md his horn* to make up his los?.

First? The Intense hostility to Ba:hinan of the Douglas, Pierce, and Hunter maiagers, has aasuxed fomethlrg of the complexion ol a regular conspiracy ?gainst 'he distinguished PennsytranUn. AU the an'l Bucbinan elements appear, at lean, to agroe in this? that the first essential Is his defeat at Cincinnati, and they are all us ng the same means to accomplish this great objept. The Douglas dcrotee wUl tell you that 8c cb a nan is an old stick, an old federalist, an old fogy; and, worse than all, that he is fishy on the Nebraska bill ?decidedly fiehy? that all tbe fi hy 'Buffalo free soil ce mocrats want him nominated and that that ought ta bo enough to damn him. The Douglas man will further declare that democratic Young America of the great West can't stand the idea of an ac ministration to be made cp of the o.d gray beards and fossils of the party, susaas Buchanan woulc instal In the Whi.e IK use. The same arguments are employed hy the Pierce and Hunter mec, wi h some modifications of justice to the administration and jus '.ice to the South. But there are mere direct agencies at work against ?M Buck, than thete genei&l outsile conversations. For ney's retirement from the l~;.ir,n is an Item. It was boch a Buchanan and as anti-Bachanan rpetaiiaD. Seiatsr -lid ell ot l.a , fieuaor Big er of Pa., and others, Buch i nan ir en, waited upon the President to protest against the sort of democratic neutrality observed by the L'nvm.

But it was not to; and among o'.lier things, Col. Forney, a Buckanin committee man at home, hold a very equ'ro cal position as joint edltcr of the organ. Very well, said tLe l*resident, we will ft# to that. CM. Forney w . ; acccrtingly called in. and told that no man could carry wa er on b^th nh'nldere, ((!en. I'ferce baa made that dii ccvery,) and that be iauf.t decide to set dawn either the fierce cr the Buchanan tucket.

Con. rter:o excused lilm. ( E nlv noi'c- Marey, on boing in formed if it, took a pinch of snuff, end said he had m o> , icctton. ) The result is, tiat while Forney is thm left ftee tc go home atd wcra lor Buchanan, the L'nim Is leTt with a laiger nargin of neutrality for oj position to hii preteanlons, aad may now be conrllered for P.erce lirst, Donnhts second, Honter third.

It is with relucU??ce that I Intrude upon your columus, as a former communication embraced all 1 Intended to say of the Messrs. Brown and myself in connection with u> j comm&Ld of the Paclfio. Bat m many attempts have been made to torture my sta ement of f-iots into an attack upon my successor and hit chief tpgineer, I aan induced to disclaim all such intention; nor does my letter warrant any such conclusion. My object was to show tbe advantages of the arrangement I desired ? ind which was approved by Mr Collins? to give the l'acilic to Capt. Oliver Eldtidge, an! the Atlantic to Capt. A a E3diidge; and I may here add that the former was equally disappointed with myself at its failure. Anonymous letters are not worthy of notice. I shall therefore confine my reply chi'fly to the letter of Mr. Wm. H. Bo wen in the Public Ledger, which was forward ed to me from 1'hiladelptua. He says: ? "As to Capt. Nye's letter, whether he was moved by spleen or patriot ism to publish it, I know not, nor do I intend to enter into the merits 'of the controversy between him and the agent in New York." There is no controversy bet iveon me " and the agent In New York." Toe matter at issue is with the Messrs. Brown, here and la Liverpool, and ex tends over a wide space. The fee ing waieh Mr. Boweu terms "?p. ten" may possibly deserve another name, and the following statement justifies its expression:? All remember the accident to the Atlantic, in January, 18.M? her return to Liverpool, and consequent detention for repairs. In November following, while the machi nery of the Pacific was being examined, preparatory to her sailing for New York, a crack was dissevered in the port journal of the main centre shaft. After a survey by the resident engineer, the chief engineer (Mr. Thomp son), and myself, it was decided that, with care, the ship might reach New York in safety. The extensive repairs necessary to our wheels, ociupiod the time night and day, and precluded the possibility of turning the engines '111 three hours before sailing. 1 thea ascertained there was a crack ob the opposite sileof the shaft. The hour of sailing (9 o'clock A. M.) allowed no time to eommuni ea'e with the agents. Taus I t'ounl myself ia a tight place, and not one of my own seekitg. After oon lulling with my chief etgiflter, and deciding on the amount of steam which might be safely curried with the shaft in that condition, I decided to assume the responsibility and proceed on the voyage. I requested Mr. Jack, the resi dent enginier, (the only person in Liverpool cogoizint of the tact,) not to nsree it, and thus avoid creating unne cessary anxiety. The event justified my decision. In eleven days the ship wa? at her dock in New York. No one outside the engine room was aware that anything was amiss ; nor was it even known to the public that the ship required a new shaft at that time. To remain in Ijverpool would have been most disas trous. The ship was loaded; passengers coming, on board; we should have failed to perform our mail eon iract. Not V speak of the greater expense of repairs on that Fide, we should have hal the mortifioation of a second detention wi'bin the year, and a renewal of the sneers of the British public at American machinery; wbiie the company was nearly bankrupt, and seeking the extra appropriation from Congress, which was necessary to its existence. Noonewas mo e directly bene fitted by the lesult than the MessrB. Br <sn, they holding a large amount of stock. My own pecuniary interest was too trfliDg to be weighed against the racking anxiety and sleepleis vigilance required. I might, therefore, have preferred a claim to *<; no e degree ot "patriotism," and a greater proper; iou of fidelity to the Interests of the company. This. I am happy to say, was fully appre ciated by all interested exc?pt the Messrs. Brown. Three days after 1 left Liverpool, the " agents " the -e, without any know.'e/ge of the facts, except what tbey derived from Mr. Jack, who tock rte earliest opportunity to inform them, followed me with a letter, strongly con demning what they ternwd ny "as' timing too much re sponsibility." Tbis was re eohued by the Messrs. Brown, ar d by the s'andard of these " foreign sgaots" I wis judged and endemned, on the pit a, '? suppose yon had i?11m1v" As an extenuation of these age as. It may be 'hit Mr. Hamilton, the managing man in the house A Brenn, Shipley ft C\, regretted the fi late of his Mother, an engineer, to recure another lucrative opera' im in repairs. Whatever may have bsen the motives of i'ie Messrs. Broun, is best known to themselves. This is tn example of the spirit iu which all my s\ioce4x has o^n met by them ; and 1 am ha spy to ray that in my long profeisionc.1 career, during which I have bsen connected ?ith i he first commercial houses in Boston, New York and Liverpool, this is the only im tance of a want of gmeiosily, c.urtesy end strict justice. Mr. Be wen asserts that n'ne ol' the stock of the oom pur.y is owned in I-iverpod. I rid not say there was, but meiely quo'ed a remark of Air. Hamilton, that lb* ships w? re " their own.'' I leave it for others to recon cile this discrepancy. It rosy ho well to look at some of the acts of thtfe mere agents. At an entertainment given i n board the Persia, on her tiial trip, Mr. Bums, the chairman, prefacol tue loiat, "Sneoenn to theCoilins line oi steamers," Willi a tribute of gratitude to the peu Vemen msnsgicg these steamers, for the honor ana kind ness shown by them to t'ie Cunard line, and g-ive ai an instance their reaciners to changi their saUiu" 'lay froui Wednesday to Saturday, when, the British 'Jtvvernment requiring transports, the Cur-nrd company wtie re ,uesd to sailing once a fortnight. For many ytars the Cnuard lite had no competitors. Saturday being their regular d aj of tailing from Liverpool, became the mail day for ihe entire continent of F.uiope, tu.d. ia fact, for the whole las'e.u hen, i sphere. It is not Mi-prising thut they v ere atxiour to retnin the adr^a-iiges of this por tion. The gr>wirg repu'ation of the ColUni line, and their fbort pnr ;a&>'*, would, had they retained their day of 'tiling have noou changed the carrtnt of mail mstt?r to Wedne: day, and secured an advantage ? Li .h the retura of the Canard line could not hwe wicnlt'l trcm tl em. Or they have sei/ed upon the vacant Stturcav. and retained it, thus ctrrylng cut the ti ll ns'erirg p it ciples attributed to the Yank?? natioa, but which ni?t< ry nhowa to have been more iully develop ed I y their Ecgli'h ,-nccstors. It may not he genhraliy known thst the British agents oi the Collins Hue in 14 ? erpcoleorkuirmateo this arrergemeut, so detrimental to our po t < (lice depuitmeut, and advertised the firel ship to i. tU on Saturday, without eomultlng the cgeut ia New Yoik. or tbe Potts aster (iecsral. so that there appeared no olli irative for tbun but MMlMMMl M ungh ?
