The splendid steamship Northerner, Capt. Budd, sailed yesterday afternoon, at her appointed hour, for Chagres. Before 3 o’clock, the time announced for her sailing, thousands had assembled, and, as her moorings were cast off, they made the air ring with their cheers, which were as heartily answered by those on board the steamer. She went down the bay in gallant style, and took with her the good wishes of thousands. It will be seen, by the annexed list, that she took out a large number of passengers:--
