The revolution in New Granada.

--The revolution in New Granada has revived of late, and there is no immediate prospect of peace. Several engagements had occurred between the rival factions, without any important results.

Mr. Foster, formerly United States Consul to Carthagenia, had been arrested and thrown into prison by the State authorities, for undertaking to go to Santa Marta without a passport. $3,000 in money was taken from him, which had been placed into his hands with which to satisfy Custom-House duties, both the State and Federal authorities claiming the money. One of the Carthagenia publications says that the cargo of the American brigantine Winthrop has been "embargoed" by the Government authorities at Santa Marta, and two-thirds of the cargo appropriated to the wants of the army, while the other third was sold to the people. The United States steam flag-ship Lancaster, and the sloop-of-war Cyane, were at Panama.
