THE REVOLUTION IN PERU. A dispatch from Panama oontains the following:- By the Sawance, which arrived at this port on the 13th, news has been received from Callao to the 6th. On the 5th a bloody engagement took place six miles from Lima, between 12.000 rebels and 6,000 Govern- ment troops, in which the latter were successful, taking prisoners 100 men and 25 offieers, besides the killed. A few days previously, a mutiny broke out on board the Amazonas, the flagship, while blockading the port of Arioa, resulting in the death of Admiral Penizo and other officers, and the capture of the ship by the mutineers. The Amazonas afterwards pro- ceeded to Pisco, where the sloop-of-war America, lately brought from Europe, was at anchor, and signalised the captain to oome on board, which he did, and was immediately made prisoner. The Amerioa was then ordared to surrender, which was done the crew yielding without the least resistance. A small steamer, the Tumbas, which was cruising off Islay, is also supposed to have been captured by the rebels. Montero-is said to have been in command of the rebel fleet. The Government have now only the Apurimac and Chalaco that are available as vessels of war, as it is doubtful that the famous iron-olads, that were to sink the Spanish fleet, and which, probably, may be used in guarding the Chinahas Islands, are fit for the service. The following particulara are published:- The officer of the marine guard on board the Amazonas, under pretence of exercising the men at target practioe, served out twelve rounds of ball cartridges to each. After firing one round he detailed squads of five to seize different officers, while he with a party entered the cabin to take possession of Admiral Panizo, who refused to surrender. A fight ensued between them, in which the admiral, after a gallant defease, was killed, and his dead boiy was afterwards hanged at the yard-arm.
