The Japanese Embassy.

--The U. States steam frigate Niagara, with the Japanese Embassy on board, arrived at Batavia on the 30th of September, en route for Japan, having made the passage from Lourdes, a distance of eight thousand miles, in 46 days, without stopping. The letters of correspondents describe the voyage of the Niagara, and the reception of the Japanese by the Batavian authorities. The reception was given to the Japanese alone excluding the American officers. The voyage so far had been very disagreeable. For three weeks before touching land provisions had been short and the Japanese had only herrings and tea. They had complained of the frequency of religious services on board.
