To rxulbtt in a Mill greater degree the dap'iclty ana had faith prectliei by toe company against the rightful government of Nic.regua, It is mob jeptiMe of irrefragable proof that at the lame time ih*y retusei to negotiate and rettle wi h -"oners IVJsoa aud Lasayo, tbey or ineir repre aentative? wne guiliy if comp icity vita Seoor Marco iota, tte Minister at Waeh'igton, ?ni repreientative of the same servile government, in plotting against the succe?.< end eec?-n<ei,cy of the jloeral power.

Ttas native government vras too pliable tar'their uses and nurprses, to be super tided ty ote -but threatened to bleed elements of au ?thcrttr and influence too potent even for them to confront or despise. Continuing sullenly Indifferent to the mis sion o: Sanors T?jara sou I.icayo, they, nevertneleee, completed an arrangement with t^nor Marcoleta, by which fifty armed ir.en. uctfo.-med and oflioered, were to he ixecepoi red on thetr vssioIb to Nicaragua, at the expense of toe compear, and to be etatloied at Castillo, osteoaib'y for the pro ee 4(11 of the property belonging to the Transit route. The mm were tent by the company into tbi.- State, were officered in pait by members, or user relative# of members of the company, were stationed at Castillo, ?ni paid and supported by the " Accessory Tran sit Company.'' Thej remained In the employ ot the company for a short perici only, when the true object of their tra m portation to the country was re maled. 'he agents of me company in Mcaragut visited in a formal reamer the Chatnorro government at Granada, and tei Ctied the services of the military force in their employ to the servile cr dem rant party But one minister repre senting the government at Granala was present in the city at th# time, and the proposition to reoelye the loie'gn solfliets wss by him favorably entertained. Tne subsequent de ibsratlma of the 1'ieHtdent and ministry charged the favorable aspect of things, aid the armed r.roUu'i of th- comcany wore peremptorily rejected.

The rem-al by the government to accept of the oompary'e flattering demcLstraiion of kinlaess, dil not. nor dtea it now, renter the o uduct of the latter any the less leptehensib'e. Indeed, their whole course in relation to their obligation. to this government has been chsrac tei izftd by uaoluRlaiDg arufija aud wanton duplicity The libera! party, at length succeeded lu terminating the revolution, sue effecting a treaty of peace with the partv cf the opposition, by meats ot which was presented the pioaieot of the tBtaUl'bmenC of a permanent govern ment. The c impauy were duly informed of the existence of the treaty and of the chante of ad ministration. I'p to this time no negotiations hid ccnc uded or kettlsmcut ariangefi Beocrs Tejkda acd I.ecsvo. and the doubt as to the right ful authority to adjudicate the pending controversy was at length cetinite.y schred. The previous notittca Hons frcm Gen. 'Aadier had been duly received, and the party he represented was now securely estaotished in power. A rcordiogly, in November, 1855, the Rivas gov ernment mate a toirnal demand upon the company for the appointment of two commissioners conj unity with the governmen", in conformity with the requirements of th# charter. The interest# of the new administration, as ?well as a just policy, dictated a speedy settlement of the difficulties ?o long unadjusted, the manner in which this application was received was euch as to confirm every piertous puspicion that attached to th# fiiroMi anl "ln egiity of the uniform source pursued by tbe Ac cessory Traneit organization. Tne demand of tbe exist ing government was responded to in December following, with tho cooi afsurance tnat "after long ana truitlesi negotla'ions " with Benors Tejada and Lensyn, they bad atlength succeeded In overcoming the objections of the retractor- commissioners, and they hid entarsd Into an arrangement by which the " whole matter" was trans ferred fir ally out of the hands alike of the government and the compaav.

The charter required the selection of a flf'li arbl rater as necessary to the oomp'eiion of the commisiion The matter was In this lecToate con'.iaon when tte recent demand of the gorsrnmant waa made, and no further progress had even been attempted towards complyicg with ths requirement of the Charter, 'the course pteviously pureued by theeompany towards the go vernmi ut was ofsuch questloDable nature that this crown leg act of unblushing assurance assumed the charastsr of oonspirsoy with the ilepo?ed commissioners to shield them eelvei?except from a nominal responsibility, and f efraua of its honvst claim the rightful government of Mearagua. This conviction is enhanced by the circumstance that one of the parties named by the company at arbitrator was oto of the oiiginal grantees ol tho charter, who, upon every principle of reason as well as law, aud by every C( asiieraiiju of good tact# aid propriety, ?hau d be excluded from any co-operation In the adjustment or this ocntrovervy. ...? , . This shufflirg, vacillating poltfy?^ls f^erish anxiety to leilave themselves from the jusi demand* of an atllict ed State, has contributed, essentially too, tosmrde loflu enoltg tie government of Nicaragua in revoking tne chattered pnvilegee ot the company. GsncuTrent vlth the abolition cf tne charter was the appointment of three commissioners empowered to seize the properly on the Is-hmus. ai ?ecuiUy for the government Claim, and to asee-dalo the ex'ent of the iodebtedoees due from the company. The nnlairnese and deposition towards premeditated" injustice, alleged to have been des criptive of tbe whole ca-eer (f the company, are equally strikingly illustrated in its manner of condnctlng i s affairs on ths Isthmus . . During the term ot its exlstenss numerous agents have been ?mploye-l for every station on tbe route. In rare instanees, it anr, no agent has been retained at one point for aoy lengthy period. He has been either remov ed or traiiSlerred, and another substituted or exchanged. No regular books or records of any of the offices hare been "vs'ematlcally kept, and in a majority of tnsianees, wbat f?w memoranda ot ths transactions of the coraoany which belonged to, and were preserved In the offices, have been uniformly up> o tbe removal or transfer of an ageu., immeoia ely transmitted to tbe company ?>* New There ie no office in Nicaragua from tbe examination of the record# of which any fair or reasonable ooncludon can be derived as to the true condition of the ou linens of tbe cam paty relating to the Isthmus, lleie and there are occasi onal memoranda from which important tacts are obtained, but which can onlv be made available by the asmstanoe and confirmation of oral testimony. It is evident from this unusual course of transecting business, that it never was ths intention of the eompany to allow the Stale ihe right of impeding the boohs and records of lti offices on the Isthmus, as imperatively required by the terms of the charter Hr lorclrg tbe Inspectors and commission ers to visit New York, it i? ea.lly to be seen how readily, ?with their usual diplomatic sagacity, they would be en abled to delude by appearances and confirm by profuse acd concienceieiv pro'ostati>ns 1 artlta capab.e ef the ut scrupulousness hitherto exhibited by thea towards thti government would be Utile likely to hesitate as to even mors qustticnahle moralities when their in.crests "Ithw'bJen exceedingly f.irtunate tor tbe government, nnd the OommU.iotere apcoin et under lti deeree, that a large proportion of the p rsona who have been employ ad a# agents of the company, as well also the confidential elerks ol tko.e agents, are still remaining la Nicaragua.

A ermmunlcation was addreaaed by tha company, through t'a accredited legal representative, to toeir gju erai sgent at Viryin Bay, in which they ?eaenttaUy moul ded their former feeling ol hostility to Gen. Walker and the party be represented, and sought to effict an arraoge meut with the government by which tne present charter of the company should be renewed or perpetuated to the completion of lta term. In oontlueration of this coacea ?ioa or clemency on the part of the government, tha moat Uteial premies of assistance, in furnish.ng money, arms and ammunition, and transporting men. were offrred, and assurances given of their falthfil fulfilment, not, indeed, in such mancer as Wonid implicate them with their own government, but in a way that would none the less successfully establish beyond contingenoy the present government ot Nicaragua. As the penalty of non-oom p'laoce with propositions supposed to be especially genial to tha circumstances and necessities of this Sta'e, the company's wrath and formidable iniiuence were threat ened to be arrayed against its success. The name and wealth ot Vanderbllt and his opulent associates were pre sented, to be held in terrorrm over the deliberations ol this government, and to compel compliance and submts con to their behests.

THK FASHIf N BACK C0UK6K?FIR'-T SPRING MSXTIKO. In a few days the first spring meeting of ths new Fashion Jockey Club will take placo. The old club having become defunct a new one has been formed under the above name, and under their auspices the meeting promises to lie a brilliant affair. The club is composed of the most influential sporting gentle - men in the city, and neither pains nor expense will be spared to render their meetings pleasant and at tractive. The course on which their meetings will tako place is what was formerly known as the Na tional Course, on Long Island, about five miles from this city. The name has been altered to cor respond with that of the new club, and in future it will be known as the Fashion Course. Since falling into the hands of the new club, some alterations and improvements have been made for the better accom modation of the public, and others are still in contemplation. The space devoted to the ladies has been enclosed by sasbwork, which can be opened or closed at pleasure, and must be a great convenience. The view from this spot is very fine, and commands the whole course. The space appropriated to ineml)ers of the club, directly opposite the judges' stand, is enclosed with sash work similar to that which surrounds the ladies' de. partment, and will be occupied by them almost ex clusively. The remainder of the space will l>e allot ted to spectators generally. The refreshment rooms are spacious. The course Itself is a very superior one, and a great deal of money was expended oa its spacious stands and iu the construction of a sub stantial brick wall around its entire circumference. The iuBide of this wall is covered with a coat o whitewash, which enables the spectator to see dis tinctly whatever trananires ou the track. Tu king the course as a whole, it is the most com plete in its appointments ot any In the Union, and perhaps in the worhj. In the i?-?- of the course is the mansion house, club house, A <., and still turtlicr in the rear are the training -table*. These are very extensive and commodious, and form a large hollow souare, with an area of about two acres in the centre, which affords a fine walking ground for the nags in attendance. Arrangements have been made to preserve the utmost order and decorum on the grounds, which can he visited by gentlemen without their sen.-e of propriety being disagreeably affected by disorder of any description. We paid a visit on Saturday last to the course, and found that several stables had arrived, and that more were expected. In the stables of Mr. Ten broeck we observed Lccomte, Fry or, Priores3, and Etiquette. Lecointe, it is understood, will not run during this meeting, but will reserve his energies for the fall campaign. He was formerly owned by Gen. Wells, but was purchased by his present own er, Mr. Tenbroeck, immediately after his defeat by Pryor, on the Metairie Course last spring, for $10,000. He is a fine specimen of a Boston, and possesses all the characteristics of that peculiar strain of blood. At the time of his defeat he was entirely out of condition, and his strength by no means adequate to a contest with a horse like Pryor. Pryor will enter for the lour mile race, and then we shall have an opportunity of forming some estimate of his merits, which are rated highly. It is said that he has not had sufficient exercise lately, and that there is hardly time to get him into four mile condition. However that may be, he looked very well at his exorcise on Saturday t aud betrayed not the slightest lack of vigor or shortness of respiration. Florede, who beat Sebastopol ut Baltimore a few days ago, will enter for the four mile day; and, if not victo rious. will at least make a tremendous run. The contest is supposed to lay principally between her and Pryor,and which everway it uiay result the race will be a capital one. . ..... Mr. Gibbons' horses have not yet arrived, but they will be here in a few days. Mr. Shaw has several, including One-Eyed Joe, Ivanlioe, Lady Ligbtfoot, a Trustee flliy, and others. Mr. Wooulolk s stables comprise Florede, and several others. Mr. Green has Augusta. Mr. Gibbons' Czar and Nicholas I. Mr. John M.Clay, son of Henry Clay, from Ashland, Kentucky, is also there with Princeton and Balloon, both winners. , , Nicholas I. now belongs to Mr. Gibbons, who intends taj run him against Mr. Tenbroeck s Prioress, mile heats. lie is said to be very swift, and in a ran with such a mare as Prioress, will have an opportunity of dis tinguishing himself. Of the entries we can not as yet speak with certainty, as they are generally made only the day previous to the meeting, but it is usual ly known for what particular race a nag is in train, by those who have an opportunity of seeing the cx ereises. which take place daily, morniug and eve ning. and are of themselves well worth witnessing. Thcic is no bur to admission on the course on these occasions, and an afternoon can be most agreeably spent there. Home ot the nags seem to have improved greatly in appearance, particnlaijly the younger oues. Sain Letcher especially looks uncommonly well; aud bulging from the way he went through his exercise, will be a hard one to beat. Old Berry, with his long back and big feet, and his legs bandaged up in red flannel, did not appear quite so gay as some of the more youthful nags, but he went through his exer cise with a dogged determination of manner that seemed to indicate that he could make a better run than his appearance warranted. As a whole, judg ing from all we have been able to gather, this first spring meeting of the Fashion Jockey Club pro mises sport of the first order, and will be well worth attending. KF.NTTJCKT.

Erary. tbiog went on aa well as usual until about a quarter to nire o'elcak, at which time the Newark was oppodte Stat? i) Island. At thla moment a lady, who was talk ing with Captain Ryan, remarked, "how would It be It tbe beat chanced to take fire ?" "Oh," replied Captain Rjaa, "there would be ao danger, a* we have all ap pliances both for extinguishing tire and for escape, on board." No sooner were the words uttered than a man rushed up from the cabin and oried out, " the boat ii ou bit!" and immediately the (jamee buret forth from abaft the better, and eptead rapidly above deck. A none of great ocnfoMen prevailed, and many ran to tbe side with the intention of jumping into the water. There ap pears to have beeu no attempt, eo far a? we could learn frrm the past eager*, on the part of the oflic.rs, to pre rerve oider or to take means lor the safety ol those oa bos id the boat. The micke was first observed issuing from the fire room, and soon after tbe dames burst forth, spreading rapidly over the deck of the vessel, and driving the paetergers to the e'etn. Here they endeavored to protect themselves f/cm tbe rapidly approaching fire, but several had tlieir clothes burned and ware sltghlly scorched by the heat. Their fears, how ever, were somewhat allayed as they saw the steamtug Aohll.es and tbe steamboat Thcmas Hunt neariug them. Soon after the Achilles ran up to tbe how cf the City of Newaik and took clT abmt twenty of her passengers. 'While thsy were engaged in saving these, ooe of the bratfl cf the Achilles was sent to the rescue of those who wen hcldlrg on by the stem rails of the burning staiiner.

The Captain of the City ot Newirk states that imme diately after the bra broke out, he ordersd all the pas sengers aft. aid the hands lowered three boats for the purpose of taking them tff. But this ares net agree with the Maiemeat of the passengers themselves, who say that no such orders were given. a?u that they aid not see the captain after the fire was dweovered. Those who were tared were rescued by tbeTauinaa Hunt and tbe Achilles, and bnt for the timely assistance Tendered by both these vsf se's, there wouid have been, It Is feared, a terrible loss ot Hie.

Ryan, while on her peerage from Newark to this city, having on board about one hundred passengers and a large amount of freight, when off Robbins' Reef Lighthouse, about nine o'clock yesterday morning, took fire. The steamtogi Achilles and Ccmmodore, and steamboat Thos. Hunt, baing in the vielnity, immediately went to her assistance, and succeeded in taking off all her passengers, without Injury to any person. The Commodore then tock the City of Newark in tow ana grounded her on the Jersey Fiats, where she row lies. The captain of the s'.earntug Achilles makes the follow irg statement:? Yesterday morniog, about 9 o'clock, while haying in tow the eh'p American Goigiess, from London, haw a s'eam boat eff Robolns' Reef on fire. We immedietelv east olf form the ship and went to the assistance of the ?t?am beat, which proyed to to tbe City of Newirk, from New aik for this city, with pc-senger* end freight. We suc ceeded tn taking tff about thiity passengers in the 11 e boat I pen cne occasion, when "the life hoat was full, a woman jnmpsd after ft and capWzed if. All that eouM be seen weie picked up again: but It is the captain's opinion that two cr three It-males were drowned. Capt. F.yan,cftbe City of Newark, was somewhat burned in his endeavors to save his passengers. The remait der of the passengers were taken off by the Tbrnsss Hunt and Commodote. The passengets taken on board the Aohilles ware landed at pier No I, f ast river, and those cn the Ccmmodore at pter No. 1, North river. STATEMENT OF CAPT. WHITE, OP THE THOMAS HCNT. Tbe The mas Hunt left Teith Am boy at seven o'clock yesterday morning; and as she was nearing Robbins' Reef Light I obeei ved a steamboat on fire, and as it ap pesrvd to me, under full headway. The boat pioved to be the City of Newark, which runs between New York end Newark, and which had left the last named place over an hour before. As soon as I perceived her condi tion, 1 immediately put our boat to ber utmost power, and as the City of Kewaik had by this time fallen off con sldeiab y in her spead, we oame up with her abont half a mile beyonu Ribbins'Reef . We found the Achillea en gaged in ttkirg off seme cf tbe passengers over tbe bow, and having lowered our three boats, Into one of which I got, we pulltii as close up under the stern of the Newark as we ccnld with talety. The passengers, of whom about fifty bad crowded to this pert, were standing along tbe edge of The boat. em1, were boloirg cu by the rails, imploring us to take them eff The fire, which I think originated In the firerrom, was tapldiy encroaching upon tbe stern, and tbe beat was becoming almost intolerable. We endea vored to paci'y the passargers, and brooght up as fast as we could The greatest meoautlon, however, was neces sary, lest, In becoming fast to the City < t Newark, tne fire should ccmmunicate to our own boat. It was also dangeions to approach, with oar life boats, under the stem cf thebureiag steamer, as the passenger* might have capsized them tn their haste to escape from the.r reilloos position. Ibey had, ie (set, swamped one boat, which I believe belonged to the Achilles, and by which unfortunate accident three or four persons were drowned. Tola boat bad trim twen'j to tbfr.y persona in it, when it was upset by a iadv jumping on the ride. We did all we could to sav- them. Rope* were then thrown from Hie deck of the Tno mae Hunt, which was now receiving the passengers from the stern of tbe City of Newark. Li'e preservers were scattered all over, aud by thla means we suecued'd in keeping the greater part of them afloat till we could pick tnetu up. In spite of our exertions, however, three peraoDF, I believe, weie drowsed, two ot whom were ladiee, and one appeared to be a laboiiog man. I have strce ?noeavored to ascertain their names, bat tbey ware unknown to any of tbe other passenger* One cf these ladies wore a pink drees, supposed to be baiege, and a straw hot net, with pink flowers on one side. r-b>- was ratker a be ve tke medium height, acd about thirty years of oge. the other lady wore a g-sen diets, and bad, it is thought, a straw bcnne'.. I think it Is probable that the man has been saved, bnt I did not nuet him after I saw him in the water. After reecnicg the passengers from the water and the burning steamboat, I went cn board of her, still thiak. Irg it pcainlti tba: there might be some one who had bun unah.e to eseape on aooount of tbe smoke and flames, which had now out off all communication between the bow and the stern, enveloping nearly the whole deck; but fortunately finding none, I returned to my own ve,eei. Among the passengers rescued was an ageil gen tleman namtd Samuel Powers, of Westchester. He nad diiapptarsd under the surface the third time, when I ruccttdtd in catching him by the hair and pulling Dial into cur beat. He had bs*n hanging onto the stern tailing* of the burning ve*?el, but having two ladies ci'rg cg to him, his strength failed, he 1st go his holo, and the whole three fell into the water. They were all rescued, although Mr. Powers is still in a very exhausted condition and requires the greatest car*, h n.e of the passengers were sughtly bruised, bnt their Injuries were trifling; and had it not been for the ctiaetrou.i best* of Home, not a li'e, I believe, wouid have teen lost. We reached the plsr, foot of Robinson street, about twenty minutes to teu, where a portion of the res cued n*>setgsrs were linden, a few remaining oa board tbe Ibct-ias Hunt. Rome cf these bad their clothes parti aby binned. Tbe City of Newark Is uow a complete wteek cn tbe flats of Jersey. STATEMENT OF A LADY PASSENGER, OF I'-ROOKLYN 1 was a passenger cn board the City ot Newark, re turniLg heme from a. visit. Tbe boat ran all the way trcm Newark at what I considered a very rapid spied; there weie I should think about flfty passen gers co hoard, among whom were many ladiee. bnt f noticed but tew chl'dren. about nine o'clock, a* i wa* eittlrg cn tbe upper deck with my little hoy, 1 notice i a strong rme'.l ot smol e, which at first I thought pro ceeds': firm the smoke pipe ami was blown uown on deck by tne w!no, but fearing something might be the matter, I started to go down on the lower deck, and, on atiivlug at the s'atrs I ea? very a dene* smoke prooeed Irg from the region of the ergine; at this time there had been no slattu whatever: almost Immedately alter, tbe flames burst forth form mi-Idle portion of the boat round theengito. A'l tbe passenger* cn the lower decs ranked aft. snu 'he greatest consternation ensued. loaught a life pie-eivcr, wn.ch I attempted to inflate, but wee so fnght ?ns-l 1 e-uld not do it. t heard no orders given and tvtryibir.g was in the wildest ooafusfen. Tne stern of I tbe hoat was so crowded that in order to escape tbe flame* S wi> obliged to climb over the railing and walk along the edge o: the beat outside, holding myself on by tbe rai'-ug and holding my boy at the same time. By this time the awning on tbe upner deck had oaaght fire and the cinders were dropping down upon oa. My dreaa waa badly burned, aa you can sea. The steamer Thomas bunt soon oame up alongside of as and fastened a cable to tbe railing of our beat Jait be'ore tb* Turns* Hunt reached us a brat had b?ea lowered, aid ( ra* am tug wmvu jUBf i&to it. lie ?<*t immediately oapsiaed, cad I think both of tho rain ware drowned. On* of them ?u n stout IrUh mnu, nod the other a young lady in a jink drear Aa old gee tleman, what* name I understand la Hsunuel Powers, and who is a farmer tiom Westchester oounty, waa rescued by Cbptaln Wbita, of tha Thomae Hunt, joat aa ho vu sinking the third time. The railing of our boat, to which the cable waa tautened, came near tiring way; and it it bad, there moat hare been a great loss of lite, aa the pal aeogene were aD crowding np against it, preparing to jump rn board the Thomas Hunt. lie log on the outside of the railing, I and my boy ware among the hrat to get aboard of the Themis Hunt. Some of the passengers were taken eff by another steamer, bat I think most of them got on board the atme steamer that I did. Tha Thomas Hunt earns on to New York, and landed us at ih? f?ot of Robinson afreet about 10 o'clock. bTATEMENT OF OFFICER WILLIAM SBIBACK. 1 waa on board the ship American Congress, yesterday morning, bringing her Into port, when I saw the dames burst np from the steamer City of Newark; this waa off the light house on Staten island. We were about two bundled yards distant. As soon as the pilot, Mr. John si d. saw ihe staie of things, be immediately ordered the captain of the steamtug Achilles, that hau the American CougxeeS in tow, t<> cut the hawser, an order he obeyed with great alacrity, and immediately proceeded to tbo burning steamer, at the same lime lowering tbe it'e boat, so as 10 aave those who miga jump into the *ater Aa <he Aobi lee and the lifeooat oearea the burning veeesl, a most fesiful scene was pre sealed. The dames weie spieaoicg with great rspidiir and tbe passengera, who were mostly women and ohii ditn, were making dreadtnl outcries, as they suppteed they would be tngulpbed ia tte osy in a wary ahori time. Aa tha lifeboat nearea tae City of Newark, five or six persona, lneiuriig two laities, sprang into it, and iu doing so upset tbe boat, and the ladles were drowned. By tbis time ibt steamer Thomas Hunt and toe steamtug Achillea were both at the stem of the vessel, tskiog oil tbe passengers, while the Ciraiuo dcrewas in front dtlrg the same good service. I sever raw so much terror nanifwnel in the whole course of ncy life. At length all tbe pasaergera were taken off, and, as far as 1 can learn, only three persona drownei. Be sides tbe liar ie?, one of the deck hands was lost. The burning vessel was towed bv the steamer Commodore on the shoal* off Staten Island, and was anon consumed to 1 he wafer's edge. Tbe Capteia of the Aonlles had bis hands burned, and he waa otherwise isjured in his efforts to aave the passengers.
