We are happy to state that all the sojourners in our city are in good health and enjoying their brief tarry in Panama. The Northerner is expected to arrive to-day or to-morrow, and will depart early in the week with most of the Illinois passengers, as well as with those who are to arrive on the Philadelphia, from New Orleans. Some of the parties however, it is not unlikely will remain for the Golden Gate – due about the middle of the month.
