Fxtract of a letter from John 1'rlest, Esq., I nited Mates Consul at del Sud, to hie father in Philadelphia, dated February 21:? Yesterday an affair took place of a serious and dis graceful character at this place, which 1 trus ' >n Qol, lor tli e honor of our country, will not be permitted to nass bv our government without making an example of those concerned. I was arrested aud taken prisoner by the cfficir# of Chamorro, the l'res dent of Nicaragua, be cause a man obnoxious to their government and who had he?n putting up at mj hotel, was mil ; delivered up bv me to them. I was sick and confined to my bed. 1 iwsu red ihe commander, Cornell, that thc rivin had left my houte, and I believed the town; tbat I kn?w nothing of Ihe man or his hostility to the Chsmorro party. Not withstanding this they took me from my bed aud sont roe to th? guard house with two negroes, with guns, to J?." me * And there I was told that, unless Is rould deliver up the man in two hoars, tbey would most c? tainly have me ahoi, and I have been ' tue in man, respects.

The difficulty had not been adjusted at the time of the depart ore of onr informant, though it was thought that ?one settlement wouli be ma<le through the agency of the Transit Company, which had considerable influence over tbe natives.

On tin* name day (the 21?t) a government foroe ar rived at Virgin Bay, (whiie tbe passengers by the Nica ragua route embark upon the like) and found that it had been deserts*) by the rebels.

An American namaS MM, who was supposed to have been connected witn tbe government party, had been brought in, and wan ordered tr be shot. The agent of the Tran sit Company interfered, and through the agency of the prlM t succeeded in procuring tha release of Lee, ana hurried h'm on board the boat. Lee ?ent as tar as Grt^toan, and probably took tbe New Orleans steamer The cause of these outrages upon America in is un doubttd'v to be traced to the prevai ing impression that Col.

Wendell Phillips' Argu ment in the Loring Case ? Sen. Wilton on Free Trade ?The Know Someth.imgt and their Movement* ? Local Elections, Out Board of Trade have not b?en able to agree on the unary question, but amajority are in favor of the repeal of tbe laws, and bave adopted a report to that effect. W bile strenuous efforts are making to have our militia encampments abolished, it is proposed to call such en cumpraents in Rhode Island. At a recent meeting of the legislative committee on the subject, Mr. C. F. Adamit spoke with much severity of the manner in which things have been done ou his property in Qu'oncy, which our city companies bave appropriated to their service, against hU wishes and r'inonitrauces. A law ougnt to be passed to prevent such outrages on the rights or property. Wendell Phillips' argument in lavor of the removal of Judge Loring from our Probate Court has bsen published in pamphlet form, lie * hows that the people, in 1X21, decided that the Legislature should have the power of removing judges with or without causo, as it might think proper 'Ibe Lurrg cane gets on vury slowly, and tl e Judge may serve out his hfe tenure after all, uuless the committee shall move more swiftly than they have as yet. General Wilson's expression of sentiment in the S? nate, on tbe question of taxing the raw material used by maoufactuiers. which seems to have been regaried as re markable, is nothing new fur him. lies&idttie suraetbin^ more thsu a dozen years ago, when he was in full commu nion with the whig party, and his associates liked it very well then. Ihe whigs of Massachusetts are now becom ing free trailers, though they don't like to acknowledge it. Tliey think tbat tbey must be quiet, in orcsr to pre serve what tbey call their consistency. They have made nil that they can out of protection, and ore no more for i'. than they did for "hard cider" in 1841, There is a very painful feeling here among some people concerning the election in New Hampshire. Those de mocrats wbo still tupport tbe national administration are naturally greatly excited about the contest, for they cannot but ste that If their party shall go down iu the Granite State, there can no longer be any hope for them. They bave lone looked to seethe reaction in favor of the democracy commence this spring, and in New Hamp shire; and if it should not, whutcan they hereafter expect but defeat avery whore? That some o( them are not with out faith and hope is proved by their belting on the re election of Gov. liaker. Yesterday one of them wagered an hundred dollars that the democrats would carry the State, which ought to afford work for a commission of lunacy, for thongh o small bet urglit be all well enough, a large one Is a very different matter, liut perhaps the better bas more money than he knows what to do with, or than bo bas of wit or wisdom On the other hand, the American party cannot but be excited when they call to mind tbat the New Hampshire election is the first one that is to occur after their great victory here, by which sc high a standard of success was es tablished. It Is hard to win an Auhterlitz, but how much harder to impiove on it, or even to keep up to it? Yet, 1 am bound to sav that our Know Nothings are very confident of victory for their associates in Ne 7 Hampshire, and some of them aver that the details rf tbe election will be us remarkable as were those of the election in Massachusetts. To use their own lauguage, th?y mean to hang the Granite State democrats high irp alongside of the Bay State whigs? which would bet} place them at the top of Oritavo, if not of Chitnhorizo. We shall see how far the event will juitify this confidence. There is one thing that may benefit the New Hamp shire democrats connected with our politics. I alluie to the "Know Something" movement, which has been pot up under the lead of Messrs. Stone, Slack and Swift, promiment members of the American party, and belonging to the Boston delegation in the House of Represectatlves. They used to be equally prominent in the fr?e soil party, and do now represent the anti slavery element It is said that th-<y are (ii?satlsll*d with Gen. Wileon's declarations iu the Senate that the Know Nothing Order bas nothing to do with slavery, in whi'^h case they wish to have nothing I to do with it. Ttey had a convention of the Knosr Somethings called, which met heielyesterdv ?" '"?? at tended hj> tiro hundred and thirty-si* members. What was done is unknown to the outsiders, but if tbe Ameri can party do not see to the healing of this breach, they may sufler from it. One of our Know Nothing papers is out in favor of open nominations, and hits lien Houston a smart, though not an ugly rap. I should say that tliere is cons' derable reason to believe that there is a lively time ahead for us >11 The elections In many of the towns and counties will take place on the 6th of March. It was at these elections that the Know Nothings made their first great deman stra'ions in 1854, and people are curious to see whether they have held tbelr own, aa they de not believe that the v te of last fall afforded any fair indication of the new ?.ty * 's politics strength.

American citizen*, have lozg bebell with the most anxious aokcitude, the Inroads of foreign era, and their encroachment* upon our free inatitutioas , and wbertss, we regard with the deepest concern the influence that Roman Catholicism haa attained in oar government, and believing that aucb influence is calcu lated to distroy all principles of freedom and liberty: and wbereas, having lost all confidence in the old an 1 corrupt party organisation*, we can no longer look to them for a redress of flagrant abuses, and a remedy for tli? great and growing evils which threaten to overthrow fur liberties and to trample our right* in the dust ; therefore be it K**?lvtd, Tbat we regard the present as a fit and proper time ft r the formation of a n ?? party devoted to tlie urtat and worthy purpose of protecting Am-rican interests and American lahor ? of fostering a feeling of A merlon nationality, and rcxtoriog the politics of our country to tleir itate of original puriiy.

The late Know N othing Convention, which met in Louis ville, it ia understood, nominated Judge V. 1/Oving, of Warren, for Governor; and J. G Hardy, of Barren, for lJeutenant Governor? the former having heretofore acted with the whig, and the latter with tbe democratic party. The Courier says these gentlemen are both m<n of ability, and will be elected in all probability, as " ttte opposition tbey will encounter from either wbigs or de mocrats will be but feeble, if, indeed, either of the old parties csn make ana unite upon a ticket." IHK CANVASS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE -THE KNOW NO THING MEETING AT OONUORD. The political content ia New Hamp shire la growing more fierce as the day of election approaches. Fierce political fires burn out the better feelings of a com munity and endanger its well being, and the fever heat of politics, as now experienced in lie* Hampshire, is not very healthful to the morals of a community. 1'olitical meetings and councils are the order of the oay. Ihere was a' Peoples' I onvention" at Concord, on Tuesday, composed of all parties opposed to ttie administration The Concord Fatriut (administration organ) calls it a gieat " Hindoo" lizzie. It cays that not throe thousand people were pieeent, including citizens of Conoord It heralds the account of tbn meeting in Aiming capitals, 8H "disgraceful proci cdugs ? rowdyism? drunkenness ? rioting and street fighting." The picture painted by the PatrXU is of rather high colors. The Manchester American says that the meeting was attended by ten thousand people, and r^tjuehts tho Hkbai.ii to proclaim that the tiraj He State is disen thrsllcd. Kxtra trains were run over all the roids lead ing to Concord, excepting the Montreal, and Portsmouth. The first regular trains were heavily loaded. They came over the Concord road, numbering seven cirs The ex tra trains wire large and crowded, and a* they cauie in one after another, the city swarmed with an nnthu?l astic multitude. In *11 there were fifty car* in ?'?? ex tra trains alon? T^o eiicin, stables and UMII of sneiter were also crowdet with sleighs which had come in from the towns immediately adjoin ng. The Manchester Mirror , a neutral paper, in r?gard to tlie meeting at Concord, says: - The convention at Concord yesterday, the Oth inst., in opposition to the democracy, was one, ia poiot of numbers, of wbish its friends may justly be proud. It brought to mind forcibly the days of ? Tippecanoe an 1 Tvler, too ' The crowd present was immen-ie, defying all attempts at computaticn. With the exception of the Montreal road, which kept the fare at full price, the railroads had all they could do. From 1,6(K> to 2,000 went np on the Concord road, from Nashua, Munches ter, and other places on the road. We have no meant of computing how many came in on the other roads. The importance of the election, the new element of Americanism, the fre juent, long continue 1, and doubt less injudicious appeals and statements of speakers in political debate, bus roused tbe citizens of the Granite State to a pitch of excitement such as was perhaps never before experienced, snd, if the loth ins'ant is favorable for tbe gathering of the people to the polls, we (hall doubtless record tbe largest vote ever thrown in the State. It would not be strange if political excitement run high at the polls. Yet for the honor and good name of the State, we hope that no intelligence >f brawling and rioting will reach us. The Concord J'alriot, with all ita figuring, makes ont about 2,000 withdrawals of democrat! from tbe Know Nothings. That many democrats remain within the rank* cf tbat party is well known; and a* the general ticket in the State, last jear, was elected by less than 1|000 democratic majority, it would se' ra tbat t?e chances of success are with the Kuow No bin* forces, upon the general ticket; and as the administration, last Sear, was not able to carry a single point in the 1-egls iture, save tho election of Speaker of the House, it in iy also be inferred that there is a strong pro lability of it4 being in a nvtiority in the n-xt l.cg lalature. The general tone of tse administration press seeow to be one of desperation r?t'uer than hops, while their op poutntt look forward to a triumphant victory. On the 7th Inst, tbe town ollicers of New Castle N.H., were elected, being the only instance in the .-'tate where the town others are chosen before the State elecrinp Thomas Curtis was elected Town Clerk : ant Thse^ge Frost, John Tarl'on snd Chan Her Marin, Selection. All these were candidates on the Know > otMng ticket, and thej were elected by about twenty majority over the ticket of the regular democratic party. The Manchester American, of tbe 5tb inst. says:? While the lytsg organs of the cli)ueare proclaiming' liere snd there a withdrawal fiom ths American party, they make no note of the fact that iti niinburi are swell ug every day. During the lsst week, from authentic in formation, tbe Am-rican party has iflcelved neajly twen ty five hundred additions. Their numbers swlllike the sdvancing tide. Onward is the shout that come* up from every corner of theState. TIIK KNOW B0MRT1IIN08 IN M ASS ACmTSETfd ?

Albany Argus of the 3d init. iijh There is sot much room for the play of partisan feeling la ap portioning the members among the counties, as the con stitution requires that it shall be done, "as nearly as may be, according to the number of their respective in habitants, excluding aliens and persons of color not taxed." (Questions, nowever, not unfrequently arise In disposing of the fractions which are deemed to carry politic*! advantages. It admits of very serious question whether this legislature would have the power at an extra session to make the apportionment, and whether the words of the constitution ought net fairly to be con strued as referring to the Drat ordinary, regular session after the enumeration 's completed. Certainly the prac lice heretofore has been uniformly in favor of tills con struction. Under the former constltuticn, tbe language of which on this point was the same as the present, the census wax taken in the years 18'ift, 1835 and 1846, and tbe new apportionment was made at the regular sessions in 182?, 1836 and 184# We see no rations, except such sk pirtir.an motives may suggest, for calling the present legislature together in Auguittor September to perform a duty which m?y just as wo'l lie left to their succes sors. We are uo*. prepared to believe that the Governor, upon whoi-e requisition only an extra xe*?loa can be called, will be induced to depart from the ordinary course in re>pect to the apporiionm-nt. If there is with the political majority a determination to have an extra ses Hx.n, we may expect to nee tliem attempt to create a ne cessity lor it. by letting important appropriation or liiariiu) bill* impaled, in order to compel tho Governor to th>s measure.

Report by Government Com - nunxonert Thereon, tic. Although the Legislature ban now been in wwion a full week, they have as yet done nothing. Until to day they have oat but two or three hours, read over the order, of }' 10 tn occasional informal debate upon iome matter of little importance, and adjourned to enjoy tt?mselv*s with their friend*, or at their hotels, as might prove most te aoeordance with their tastes One question only ha* elicited anything like an ani mated debate. The question of a Prohibitory Liquor law similar to that before the legislature of the State of New York is before ?he House, and oa the proposition of the gentleman having charge of it that It should go into committee of the who.e, a rather interesting discussion ?rose. That the bill will pass the Assembly no doubt ia entertained although the motives by which gentlemen ?re influenced in voting for it are as wide as the pole? asnncer. Some are impelled by a horror of the evils of intemperance and a conscientious conviction that this measure provides a certain and only remedy; others duly impressed with the evita entailed by the tippling usages, are willing, while entertaining serious doubts *s to the efficacy of such a measure, to give it a fair trial; and more are induced by pressure from without, against which they have not the moral courage to contend. The Utter class of parsons are in hopes that the bill will be thrown out by the Le gislative Council, or, If passed there, vetoed by the Go. vernor. From all I can learn, however, they are likely to be disappointed, and it Is quite probable that before tbiee months a Prohibitory Liquor liw will be placed upon tfce statute book of Canada.

At 0 o'clock In the morning occurred an earth quake, which was felt over* largo part of Mexico, In the departments of Vera Cruz, Guerrero. Oaxaca, &e. The mov< merits were from South to North. It threw down many buildings, and stopped up mcny of the mountain roads with fragments of rocks, broken from the l*<lges and cliffs.
