Arrival of the Pacific.
At two o'clock yesterday morning, the steamer Pacific arrived in our harbor, from Panama. Her trip has been another exceedingly quick one. The passage has been made in sixteen days and eighteen hours, running time.
The Pacific brings 110 passengers, and news from New York to the 28th July. A very limited number of papers were received by her.
We extract from the Log of the Pacific:

. . . The British steamer Asia, of the Cunard Line, made her last run from New York to Liverpool, in 10 days, 3 hours and 5 minutes, mean time. She has thus surpassed the best trip of the American steamer Pacific, of the Collins Line, that vessel having made her fastest run in 10 days and 6 hours, mean time - only three hours more than that of the Asia.
The steamer Atlantic, which has been undergoing repairs for a long time, was advertised to sail from New York on the 23d of July next.
