The steamer Pacific, of Vanderbilt Independent Line, commanded by Capt. Nathaniel Jarvis, arrived from San Juan del Sud, early last evening. She brings dates from New York to the fifth of January ten days later than the intelligence received per Panama.
We are under obligations to her Purser, E.A. Poole, Esq., for late papers, passenger list, and the following memoranda:
Sailed from San Juan Del Sud January 21, 1852 at 8 o'clock P.M. with four hundred passengers. Left in port the steamer New Orleans; schooners Ellen Frances and Charrons and brig Hellen Kolkut. The ship Mariana of Boston dragged her anchors, went ashore in the outer harbor of San Juan, a total loss. The New Orleans arrived on the 18th ulto., having encountered a norther off the Gulf of Tehuantepec, causing her to lay to fifty hours, stove her bulwarks and wheel house. She was taking in coals when we left, and was to sail to next day for Panama. The Pacific arrived at Acapulco Jan 26th at 8 o'clock A.M. Sailed on the 28th, at 11 o'lock P.M. Left in port Commodore Stockton and schooner James L. Day. Passed the Golden Gate 20 miles to the northward of Acapulco. Feb. 2d, at 1 o'clock P.M. was hailed by the brig Tryvenia at anchor, the eastside of Cerros Island, 47 days from Panama, for San Francisco, with 120 passengers, in distress, out of bread and water, six persons having died on board. We took off all the lady passengers and children; left her at 7 o'clock P.M., taking in water. . .
By the telegraphic accounts from Washington of January 4th, Mr. Clay's health was said to be much better. It was also confidently expected that he would appear in the Senate in a day or two to make a speech in opposition to the non-intervention policy of Kossuth.
General Sam Houston was at Buffalo, lecturing before the Young Mens Association of that city.
