It is known that a forma 1 •nrVeywasniodeof tho Isthmus several.years ago, and the entire practicability of the route established. The grant of Mexico to tbe Gardy Hargous people conferred extraordinary; pri-Vilcgea; and although subsequent events have exhibited, on the part of that power, the usual amount of prevarication and duplicity, yet there can be no doubt " that this grant can be nude good, or something sufficiently equivalent to carry forward an enterprise, which , when completed, will give anew impetuB to American progress, and add a new bond to the indissoluble ties which bind our .

CORRESPONDENCE FROM WASHINGTON {Correspondence of XW Prens.] Wasdixoton, August 12. Tho adjustment of all the difficulties between tho different olaiinants to tho right of way across tbe Isthmus of Tehuantopco, of which news has just reached hero, will bo followed by an appeal, first to Mexico, and next to the United Statea. Should Mexico refuse to ratify her repeated pledges, in treaties and otherwise, on this subject, (which U hardly to bo feared considering the pacific policy of Gen. Comonfort, the present President of that Republlo,) then, and in that event, prompt action will no doubt b» taken by our ovn Government to sustain our own citlcens. To open thia transit has always been it great object with Mr. Buchanan. He favored it during the Mexican war and in Mr. Folk's Cabinet, and I know that he has been con¬ sulting his constitutional advisers, very lately, on the same subject. There was, no doubt, a host of speculators in this great project. That is the curse of nea...

Mr. frn Droeck's Herirs. It ia stated in Potter's Spirit of the Time.; that Mr. Ten Broeck has withdrawn Pryor and Prioress from the Ebon Handicap. The reasons for which were the evident unfairness in weighting, they being so heavily weighted by the " hasdicappar" for that race, as to make their defeat almost, if not quite, a certainty. Lecompte and Pryor are, however, entered for the Newmarket Hooghton meeting, to be run on the 26th of October. This rate is a single dash, of four miles, one furlong and on* hundred and seventy-five yards. Prioress is tutered for tht Lewes meeting, Sussex County Cap, to be run on the 10th of this month, (August.) This is a two mile daah-Pryor and Prioress were in most superb condition. The S pirit, writing before the result had reached New York, says; "We aro strongly in hopes that tn* 'Stars and Stripes'will win th* raot. But should the result be against us, we shall bear our defeat manfully, and hope to an tha challenge of Mr. Ten Broeck (made ou...
