The Battle near Rivas. The Nicaragua news by the steam- ship Texas at New York, appears in ihe papers of that city on the 3d inst. The accounts furnished by the purser are the same received here by the telegraph, but the statement by some of the passengers regarding the battle of the 16th ult. differ widdy with each other, and wifh the purser's report. Some of them imply that the tattle was a trifling, undecisive af- fair, aud that no reliable information had been obtained concerning it when the steamer sailed ; others cofirm the statement of the purser, but differ in particulars. The folowing, which we copy from the New York Express, appears to be the most reasonable and satisfactory: The Orizaba, from San Francisco, "Worms!

^Inventions of the Chinese.— Iwias been considered that the Chinese were not an inventive people, and yet this would appear to be a mistake. The art of prin- ting was known in China nine hun- dred years before any knowledge of it prevailed in England. Prin- ting was first introduced into Eu- rope early in the fifteenth century. The Chinese printers were gener- ally itinerants. They next dis- covered the magnetic needle; this took place in the traditionary pariod when the Yellow Emperor, having missed his way, a little carriage was built, on the top of which was a figure, which always pointed to the North, and thus the route was discovered. The effects of the loadstone where also men- tioned in their dictionary.' We were also probably indebted to the Chinese for the mariner's com- pass; for it had been long known to them before itwas to us. Gun- 5^wder was invented there many centuries before it was known in England, and it is a singular fact that the component parts were nearly the ...

In these days of strife and discord, when sectional prejudice is arraying one portion of the country in deadly hostility against the other—when the canker of fanaticism is preying upon he vitals of the country—in short, at a time when the South has borne the insult, contumely and aggression of the North, till forbearance has almost ceased to be a virtue, it behooves eve ?y Southern man to think, and every Southern state to act, upon some sys- tem of policy by which we can hope to maintain an honorable position in the Uuion; and, should the day for a *■ dissolution arrive, by which we will stk$a^tske ou? place among the family of nations at least on an equal footing with the (theu will be) Republic of the North.

Just before the ^expi ration of the twenty-four hours, (?) a small body of Costa Hicans came through the woods from up the river and fired on one the piquet guards, who came run- ning to Titus, saying that the Costa Ricans were coming upon them. He ■was told to go hack to his company and give them fi^ht. " But says the guard, there are more than five hun- dred of them." Col. Titus replied-^ "Theh--l there is! Then we had better run; save yourselves boys," and started upon the run with one company with him, some of them be- fore and some behind him.

jm.. 1fir. Buchanan and Cub*. The acquisition of Cuba must constitute an achievment of Mr. Buchanan's administration. With the slavery question settled, and an era of good feeling inaugurat- ed, the President can address him- self to the accomplishment of this object, to which he has looked for- ward for thirty years. As early as 1826, while discussing the Pa* nama mission, he took bold ground for the possession of Cuba, to pre- sent it from becoming a magazine against the South. This position placed him in tlie late canvass im- measurably above Mr. Fillmore and every other northern man as -the candidate for the South. While others might guarantee to the South all of her rights under the Constitution, he was pledged to go beyond and outside of the Consti- tution and wrest that island by the strong arm of power. Again, *gs the author of the Ostend Mani- festo in 1854, he reiterated the same doctrine in the strongest and most unequivocal manner. Just ^previous to the election, too, he...
