?e?rgw W. Handera In Reply to (ke HMumimI Bunklmr-TooetkM Pleree, Hunter, M mr wmm, Otc Jfinlt Brawmon, Kam WaUUnxn, At., <Sk. New York, August 1 1665. TO THE EDITOR OP THE RICHMOND KX* VfNLR. ? You have thought proper in a late i--neot the Rtamiiur, to m.iki a personal attack upon mo ami to im fugn my motives uvreceut notes addressed t<> democrats en the conduct of public men. Although I time within the last fe w yearn written much for the public, the record will bear witness that it has not been of myself. Tlie violence and want of courtesy in your remarks, make it Aeubtful whether I should in self respect now depart from * Hi in rule. But the Invitation it offers to give you and ether* , still more objectionable, the skinning you all so richly deserve, is tin tempting to forego." Moreover, it is .1 duty to expose the viciousness of years and similar reactionary movement* becoming too eemtnen in the Pierce press on leading subjects of public teferest. I am surprised that the usually intrepid Examiner nhouki, in its vindication of Senators, fell into the mean p*actice of the Pierce organs, in arrogantly reviling the motives of gentlemen without saying one word of defence on the subject matter; chuckling over the idea that thi ?llly trick will change the issue before the country. K is the settled tactics of this administration to ont rage those national democrats who cannot be dra fooned or seduced into favoring their machina tions, so as to be able to cry out in reply to their stricture-, "ft is personal plifuc aud its members con # gratulate themselves on having in this summary way atopped the mouth of many an indignant democrat, but such cobwob manoeuvres only challenge me to break through theui. K was rather an unfortunate selection, however, to take ?* up as an iuslnnce of a man speaking the truth, only ?nder the influence of disappointment or revenge. I defy ?ny most interested toes to show a line from me, courting the favor of the administration, or sustaining it under unworthy a-ts, even while in the enjoyment of the office ?f my choice, the best in the gift ot the government, which I could easily have retained by an abandonment of any "hard" and "red" principles. Unhappily we do not huve to go out of ourovvn country fcr examples of the influence of power on human charac ter, ami k was natural enough, however dishonorable, that the administration should seek tobreak in or break 4own any office-holder who showed the slightest inde (pence of thought, outside of its oivn line of action for the fimc heing. I>ut what is unnatural and alarming is, that democratic Senators whose duty it is to sustain tile tude- 1 fcndcnce of the 'itlzen against executive tyranny, should have fx. en forward not only to aid the administration in ?t* attempted degradation of officials, but to lead in the lowering work, the great charge against me being that I ???? iii' ie democrxti.- than tiny of t hem-elves. The ?>g oi European reaction had spread its stifling pall hea vily over the Senate. But the unworthy revenge of de mocratic r< pre*< ntatlves does not u my confidence in Uic justice and generous appreciation of the living demo cracy of the nation, or weaken my devotion to the demo ciatic principles in which I was '? raised." Penetrating to motives, it is t^uif** as c.i?y. and more to the point, to impugn the motivs of gentlem-n who sup *ort the administration, especially when the patronage *1 the government has to be given or pledged to obtuin the most ordinary endorser to its acts. You would seem to intimate that e, Virginian, or n man descended from Virginia, has some peculiar right to ad dress the public; and tluit I may arrogate something to myself from this lineage, even l.y the wsiy of that Ken tucky which you so enviously characterise as a -' -wine producing" State. Now. although I revere the Virginia atatesmen ol the olden time. I utterly repudiate th" idea that a Keutuckian or a N'vw Yorker can derive any con sequence from the most illustrious Virginian descent, or that his own efforts, however humble, c?n l>e prejudiced oy contrast with the nobler acts of hi-, forefathers. To be an American citizen is right 11 ud title enough loaddregB American citizens on any subject of public eonceiu. I by do means, ho wev er, lightly esteem this ??ght, and I trust that whatever I have said* or may guy, 1 haa always borne and will always bearwifh it evidence of my deep sense of the propriety and care which should mark tho language of a man w ho avails himself of it. With this consciousness 1 have felt tha' no apology is re quired for speaking to democrats, anil I make nono. Can didates, Congressmen and fcderuf office holders have too long claimed to lie the only legitimate talkers, desiring to ?cctire themselves thereby a monopoly of influence and ?owcr, and to frighten citizens from entering the politi cal arena. Editors owe it to their readers, who are a le gitimate constituency, to oppose this assumption. I very much distrust the democrucy of one who would ilosire to bring into discredit the practice of citizens addressing the ruVUn opportunely on any subject of general interest. If fcy ridicule and utilise, the administration press can in timidate any sensible person, however little known, frcm a decent expression of opinion on public men and measures, tlie people lose at once one of the greatest safeguards on public virtue and responsi ble truMs. The I/indon Timx boasts that English men always have access to its columns? ."English citi xens," as it proudly calls by anticipation Kngllsh sub jects. It is the business of officials, the President included, to act; it is the duty of the people to write an I sjieak, and to tell their servants wlwt to do. We must have more action with less talk from representative and exe cutive men. It is childish malice to taunt me with Know Nothing ism, nnd conies gracefully from a press whose very typos would pale at being set up with the names of Kossuth, 1-edru Kollin, or Muzyiui. As the Kxt\mintr does me the honor to make my politics of : ufHclent ImporUince to be miaropre entcd. I will state to its grief that I have never had the slightest connection with the Know Nothing or American party, but am now, ever hare been, and ever will be, a State rights democrat of the JefT-rsonian school ; to European politics ? red," of tho most sanguinary hue. With all if? incongruities, the* nations) men, e-peeially ?f the ?ontli, are under deep obligations to tho Philadel phia Know Nothing Convention tor their thorough and unequivocal reolution on the Kansas-Nebraska bill. 'Ibis action has done more to weaken Northern sectional i>m than any recent political move, notwithstanding the attemper the Pierce pre*s to cu-d ridicule ujsin its jia lriotiM* Tlie admiuistration is the leaven of tlie Know Nothing fei mentation which has been excited chiefly by popular detestation of Its Jesuit policy. The labor, ar tistic skill nnd capital of Europe have been invite I to our *hi ie? by all tlie means known to us. The national go* crnmcnt, the States, corporations and individuals, have vied with each other In offering inducement". It would lie a violation of American honor end integrity to deprive this emigration of any of the rights and privileges to the enjoyment of which they have been invited. The bounti ful harvest and tlie brilliant general prosperity of the whole -ountrv will not be without, effect in recalling to our people what is due to European American*. Tlie danger to the democratic party is not from any nut ?ode combinations, but from the low iutrigucs and want of enlarged and elevated thought in its would be leaders. The "jealousies, hen rt -burnings and bickerings" of per sonal partisanohip which you accuse mu of having ex - cited, were smouldering with fierce anil deadly intensity when 1 assumed the management of the Drmocrafi- Re view, fist January, 18fi2.1 aided by some of the boldest most intellectual end disinterested writers in the land. Yonng America took hold of the distracted elements with rough but generous hands. It raised the canvass worn personal squabbles to tlie consideration of great principles. It represented faithfully and accurately (he ?arter upon which the people wi-hod the country to enter, and the nation leipouded >rith acclamation at the pells. 1.00k at the vote for Frank. Pierce.

During the canvn<ut we acted on the broad and ju-t maxim that as the discussion of princi ples is the way to reach truth, so the discussion ot indl vidnnls is the way to expose weak and bad men. and to kringinto the light of public notioe the merit and intellect ?f the couutry. The selection of an inferior man was no fcult of ours. We thought we went low cuough d"Wa in the scale of possible candidates when w> examined the pre tensions pf Lynn Ikiyd.

You deem It presuming in me to look into the language of Senator Hunter, and I Khali add to this presumption by looking i|ito the deeds of Senator Mason. Senator Mason, Chairman of the Committee of Foreign Affairs of the Senate, is responsible for the loss of Cul>a. Our vacillating President would not act without the ad vance support of Congress. Senator Mason prevented the necessary action and snstalned the administration in all its folly and turpitude in the adjustment of the Spanish aggressions. Mr. Soulc resigned because lie was not supported in the affair of the Ostend Conference. The Hrst the country knew of his resignation was the appoint ment of his successor, hurried through the Senate in such hot haste by Senator .Mason as to lea\e no time for Senators to inquire into the conduct of the administra tion. The Minister to France, a patriotic and distin guished Virginian, was as much a party to the Confer ence, and just as much rebuked by the course of Vir ginia's Senator, as was Mr. Soulc himself. Had Senator Mason exhibited the least nerve, Secretary Davis pretends to think that the administration would have tatwn courage and done something. (More than doubtful.) The course of Senator Mason, however, amounted to a perfect surrender of the interests not only of the South, but of the whole nation. The administration, i lthouph guilty itself, very Justifiably throws the weight i f the blame upon Senator Mason, who showed b>m*clf lamentably deficient in all the sinews of statesmanship. 1 have long since made up my mind that we are to gain no more territory under this administration, and I shall ihink the country fortunate if it get rid of ii without the loss of any. 'ihe Spanish ministry, 1 am sorry to say, has shown more fidelity to those who serve it, even dishonorably, then our own government has to its most honorable ami fiiilhful agents. Finding their devoted l'erry cashiered for levellirg froin the Minister up (or down) to the ('re sident, they generously graced his fall by some thousands of reals, scattered over the lllack Warrior outrage. Nor are the tampering with the higher law and the alwndonment of Cuba all that your Senators will be held responsible for. There was a Northern Senator who assumed tho responsibility of the Kan fas Nebraska bill, and carried it through Congress in the midst of a hurricane of sectional denunciation. Southern Senators had it in their power to show their appreciation of his services by promoting him, anil the Southern people would have been gratified to have seen him elected to the vacant Pros! !ency of the Senate. Jealousies and petty aspirations interfered with the exhibition of such integrity, andtheofHce was thrown away upon tho most lubberly intellect in the Senate, always excepting President Pierce's extraordinary Itodgc. The democracy owes it to its dearest interests to attack with strong condemnation the motives which lead to the selection of such small men for the highe t offices in the country ? it having become the fashion now to choose men for places of trust, not for their merits, but for their negations. In taking leave of tlie Kramiwr, which until recently wo regarded with pride as & gallant exponent of Young Amei ica, 1 cannot refrain from expressing my surprise and regret that after having bravely resisted the fury of the we.ves of le gitimists and Orleanists in 18.Y2, it should in 18.\5, have, in a lit of despair, allowed itself to be suck eu into ilie fatal eddy of Pierce imperialism. GEO. N. SAVDERS. Extraordinary Marriage. [From the Clarksvllle Tobacco Plant.] Our renders will remember that some time since we stated that it was very usual for Indies to insti tute suitri for breach of marriage promise, but that no instance of such a suit, in which the gentleman was the plaintiff, had fallen within the range of our observation or reading. The following facts may lead to such a denouement: ? Squire John Bradslier, of Person county, N. C., had been a widower for only ft few months. After the loss of his partner, he felt sadly oppressed with the unwonted loneliness of his situation, and natural ly fell into the habit of visiting a Miss Franky lx>a, of the neighborhood, by way of dispelling his gloom. It is not. in hitman nature for two persons of opposite sexes, with warm impulses and throbbing hearts, to associate constantly and intimately, without be coming strongly attached, one to tlie other. The thought nt first, perhaps, entered the brain of neither. Hut Miss Franky, as is the saying, had the quills. Twelve thousand was her dowry. This, with her other attractions, (for, mind yon, Bbe was only 57,) operated like magic upon the ardent nature of the Squire, who, though in his seventieth year, was rejiwetnzed by the inspiration of Miss Franky's smile. He, there lore, found no difficulty in making up his mind to marry her if he could. He proposed ?she accepted. The morniug of Saturday, the 14th July, just passed, at 8 o'clock, was fixed upon for the marriage. The Squire procured his license, paid au extra price for it, in view of the expected accession to his wealth, employed a parson, rigged himself off in a suit of black, and made every other imaginable preliminary arrangement for the ceremony which was to consummate his bliss. The daughters of Mr. Samuel Johnson, another widower of the neighborhood, were invited to the wedding. Johnson was only 57? Miss Franky's age exactly. They had lieen children together; and while they were both quite young thev had loved. He was not satisfied that she and the Squire should marry. On Friday evening, Ihe day )>efore the ex pected wedding, seeing a neighbor passing his bouse, he hailed him. The neighbor found Johnson very much excited and disturbed. Johnson stated to him that he could not bear the thought of Miss Fran ky's marrying Squire Hrfflsher, and that he wanted him lo goto Miss Franky at once and say to her for him that if she preferred marrying him to Squire Braduher, she could do so. The neighbor insisted on his writing to her a letter to this effect, offering to deliver it. "No," says he, "I am eutirely too [ nervous to hold a j?en. Von must go and deliver the message." Finally he consented and repaired to Miss Franky's residence, charged with this message of love. Miss Franky, in reply, authorized him to say U> Mr. Johnson, that'll lie would get ready to luarry her at sunrise the next morning, she would marry him. It 'was then late In the afternoon. Having no time to spate, he put off under whip and spur to Rnxborough, the county seat, for his license, aud at the same moment started off u servant to Leasburg for a parson. The servant took aire not to inform the minister what it was his master wanted with him, but only said that his services were impera tively required at sunrise Ihe next morning. Mr. Johnson, the minister who had been engaged to officiate, and tlie friend who had borne the mes sages of love between Miss Frauky and the bride groom, were at their post at the appointed hour. The marriage rites were performed, aud Miss Franky IvCu became Mrs. Franky Johnson. An hour afterward Squire Bradsher and his reti nue were to come. Accordingly the bride hastily addressed n uoto to the Squire, informing him that she was no longer Miss Franky I/; a but Mrs. Franky Johnson, and tfmt he need iiyl trouble himself any further obput her. The astonished yet incredulous Squire could not lielievc the note authentic, but regarded it as a hoax attempted to be practiced upon hiin by some of the wild young men of the neighborhood. * To settle the matter he hastened over to see his inamorata. Ar rived in her presence be presented the note to her and inquired if she wrote it. She replied in the af firmative. Incensed at her faithlessness, lie in dulged (who that is mortal would not?) In bitter complaints cf her ill treatment. (Johnson mean time in the next room, reclining on a sofa, cosily smoking his pipe, and listening with more of merri ment than resentment at the imprecations heaped upon his bride.) Indeed, having foiled his competi tor while in the very net of plucking the fruit for which he so much yearned, he could well afford to endure the pain of a few bitter reproaches. After a free ebullition of his indignation, the Squire retired, resolved, as our informant tells us, upon a resort to the law to stanch his heart wounds, and heal, as far as possible, his brtii.-ed and lacer.ited af fections. Having derived these facts from undoubted au thority, they may lie regarded as true to the letter. An Atkociodm Muipkr in Cincinnati. ?

[rrom the Friend of China, tUy 13.1 ??n#tb/ei7tih of 4* CF wc ftwnkbcd an ac count of the Ion of the American bark Sarah Moore (or Moere) Joel Woo<l berry, master, oa learned from the carpenter of that vessel on his arrival here In the Sea Kiug from the Raven Islands, in the North Pacific. Amongst other particulars it was stated of the Sarah Moore that : ? Ike Collin pawen?TH were a Mr. and Mrs. Rom andTuur cAlIrden, and two French and one EnglUh fi-male. A difference occurring between the passenger Ross and niH wife, and ahe not demuaring, the unfortunate hux baiid WMtledhund and foot and landed on an island caUed Kotamah. The passenger* endeavored to prcveut such an atrocity, (thin |>art of tho narrator's statement was untrue, the passengers w^re glad Rohs wan pat on snore.) but the captain, backed bfl his mate*, vowod to bioi revolver on any one attempting to check The residue of the passengers from the wrecked vessel did not arrive here until the month of July following; and, an occasion offered, we made en quiry from several of them as to the troth of the ex truordinary statement regarding the man Ross who had been landed at Rotamah. The result of all these enquiries are as follows : ? Not long after the Sarah Moore left Sydney, Ross and his wile commenced quarrelling; and both of them being fond of liquor, scenes of violence were continually occurring. On one occasion the wife ac cused the husband, Ross, of being an escaped con vict? of being one of the robbers of the gold escort from BaUarat, (the robbers took lifeon that occasion, li we remember aright,) and of various other flagrant offences. So accused, guilty of the charges or not, is doubtful, Ross vowed to take his wife's life, and in this he was not far from effectually succeeding. The following is taken from a paper mitten by Alexan der Stephenson, steward of the Sarah Moore, placed in our hands some time ago: ? At the name time Itoss, using the moat profane lan guage to her, she then spitting blood freely, goes up to her und says, '?! will give you aomething to cry lor," and makes another effort to strike lior, to which she says ?tMrl(!nd''' don't strike me any more or you will kill; me, for in the room you kieked me so hard that you broke one of my ribs."

Not finding them there, nor any tidings of them, I stayed two months, when the news came from Hong Kong that the ship wos lost on Raven's Island, the passengers all saved, and arrived in Hong Kong. 1 then took passage to this place, and arrived here on the 23d of Harcli. On the 24th I applied to the American Consul, Mr. Keenan , to kuow where my family was. He told me that they had lived in Hong Kong for three or four months, and during that time my daughter had been married to a sergeant of the 69th regiment, by the name of James Bodell, and that my wife had bought his discharge, and that they had all left together, and no one knew where. That day I got information that the Captain of the Sarah Moors was in this city. 1 then applied to Mr. Keenan for a warrant to have him arrested; my charge against him was piracy, robbery, and attempt of murder. The Consul told me be could not grant me a warrant, on accouut of my being an Englishman; but that bo wonld like to have him punished, for that he knew him to be an old scoundrcl. Then I ap plied to the Hon. C. B. Hillier, Chief Police Magistrate of Hong Kong, aud stated my agree ment to him' of which he took a copy. I then ask ed him to be kind enough to grant me a warrant to apprehend the Captain. He said he could not ? it was ont of his jurisdiction to do so; and then I was told to call to-morrow. I then carried my message to the Consul ? "Call to-morrow." The Consul told me to call at 5 o'clock. I called at o, and he was ut his office. He then went to the magistrate's private residence with me, to see what they could do for me. They could not grant a warrant because the robbery and brutality was committed at sea. On these grounds I could not have him arrested. I then went to a solicitor, and he has taken the ease up for me. By those means I obtained a writ tor his ap prehension. I then applied to Mr. Mitchell, the sheriff, for a ludliff, knowing at the same time wbj'i'i! to find the Captain. I was anxious to get a bailiff, but was told to call again. He was seen on Snnd iy with his mistress. I made a report to the bailiff whereabout he was to be found. The bailiff had to see Mr. Mitchell. He was most anxious to fulfil his duty, but had no authority. And that is the way business is done in Hong Kong. Jamijs Bosh. Later from the II lo Grande.

No notion lots in y?-t taken place between the contcn'l ing fhrces oh the opposite bimk ot' tho river, though at lw^madl they were manoeuvring quite near each other, fetters were received here in -t evening from the camp of the insurgents, stating that the commander, \ i durui, hearing of the approach of h reinforcement of go vernment troop*, had countermarched with a portion of his command to Monterey, to meet thin new enemy, whilo (ieiieral and Governor dc ia Gar/a remains at tho head of the Insurgents on the river, to watch the operation* of Gen.

The letters state there Is no tear of the ultimate succesi; of the insurgents, as tho people from nil quarters arc flocking to their standard m ma*v. filled with the greatest enthusiasm.' Tlieir number* aro said to huve al ready swelled to throe thousand ol the best men of tho frontier. Many of the most wealthy and influential men of Northern .Mexico, inspired by tliaf love ot liberty which actuated our fathers of '70, are said to have abandoned their homes, contributed tlieir means, and joined the ranks as private soldiers. Hilt will the change now about taking plaee ostublish a peimanent government, or )>ctter the condition of the people f We fair it will not. Already nave the germs of discord discovered themselves in the in-urgent rump, and are like to lead to conflict between the State*, after thelv sovereignty lias been restored: and if so. Iben will come cliaos, and another, if not a llnal dissolution. In our lust number wo stated tliut Caravujal wa? second in command. This has turned out to be incorrect. This gentleman has withdrawn himself from the movement, and is now on Ibis bank of the river. Ho took otfence lit what he conceived to be the assumption by Vldauri of what he construed to lie the righls of the people of Ta maulipns. and hence his withdrawal. Jose de In Garta now fills liis place as second in command of the insur gents. Caravajal is b.ivinjr published the correspondence which led to t)d* result, and which he thinks will justify him in the eyes of his friends. It is rumored that litteen or twenty of oar soldiers, from one of Iheurtillery companies lit Ringgold barracks, had de cried and joined the insurgents, taking with them their side rums anil accoutrement . 'I he following is seven days Inter: ? Ibe revolution ??till gains strength on our frontier. General Woll 1ms fallen back frrn Heynoea upon Matamoros. and a considerable number of the rebels arc now. at the time ol our going to press, close upon his heels. We have It from good authority that three several jiarties are encamped near Malwntoros? one at Guadalupe, about tlire leagues dis. ir.ut; one nt the raneho of Agapito Longorio, about <i(?ht leagues off; and the third party at some other point close by. These parties are, wi learn, commanded by Capis tran. Tijcrina and tttyas. They do nut contemplate an attack upon the city as yet, we believe. A rumor, said to be well authenticated, says that On. Vidauri, having riguiated matters at Monterey, was again marching on Matamoros, with n, force of twenty eight hundred men. It is aGo said that the forces r??>?r art und the doomed etty have orders not to cugage the enemy until the arrival of Vidauri'* reinforcements. In the meantime Gen. Woll and tln^e subaltern to him bavegronn wiatliyto deapeiation. During (he absence of General Woll the commend of the city is said to have devolved upon the famous Donna Luciwla, his reputed wiie, and her first use of authority was to command the inhuman treatment of one of her own sex. which not even the tears of the ladies ot Matumoros could prevent. The di- graceful proceeding is fully described iu Spanish in another place. It is impossible to say when Matamoros w ill fall, but its In e is inevitable, und then terrible will be the reckoning. We have much to say on this subject, bat our limited space will not permit. The laily alluded to above having been inhumanly tri ateil, was named llemande*. She had crowed the river to Matamoros, and had been persuaded by her brother to deliver a letter to an official of that city, named R-irba i inn, asking an interview. This, and toe fact that she bad not a proper passport, caused her to be arrested and thrown Into prison. On the following day she wa- taken into the public square, and her hair ws- cut off, lock af ter lock, by 1 be bands of different malefactors of the prison. Ifer family witnessed this shameful punish incut in the deepest uistiess, while she Implored the a'lthori tii . 1? put her to death rather than submit her to such di-giaie. the was afterward* -en* to Vera Our.

The eternal and ever surging forests that clothe the hills of Nicnragun, now ware in darkest foliage and cast their deepest shadows. The dread cholera, the inexorable visitant of all parts of the world, is fast disappearing from this lovely country. It was undoubtedly imported here from New Orleans, and gradually spreading up the San Juan river, and westward, ts last stronghold has been this little picturesque town, t has spent its fury, and has now almost entirely abated, he prevailing winds driving it down to the neck of the ontinent, to combine with the dark miasmas and jungle evert which hang around the Isthmus of Punama, and eed on human life. When we consider the relentless i nd irresistible course of this dread scourge, we may well dread its silent march to Parien, because sad ?X crience has taught us that its onward tramp it ever marked by a swarlh of corpses and the wall of thou sands. The pure atmosphere that flouts around the magnificent lakes of this republic has doubtless done much to assuage the fury of the plague. And Nicaragua may now safely think that the wings of the angel of death no longer wave o'er the green hills and expansive lakes within her border*. Tin: last week has not witnessed any new victims along the line of the Transit. The civil war still rages in the interior of the country* The Uuadiola party, whilom the Chamorrro party, are now in possession of the country, except I -eon, where Castellon is shut up with live or six hundred men. Col. Win. Waiker und his heroic little band are on board th<ir veprel, and at anchor off Kealejo. He shot two of his men for incendiarism, the night he embarked from this place; his future movement* are shrouded in deep mystery. We learn his party are in great distress for food and clothing ; if so, look out for a swoop at an early day. llumor says there ire fifty Americans at Castillo rapids in the employ of the government, and commanded by a I'ole. They were surreptitiously smuggled out of New York by the Nicaragua Steamship Company, whose ?ym p.ithb'S all go with this government and the side of per manent peace: for they find the distractions of this un happy land strongly militating against the welfare and profits so desi rvedly due their extraordinary exertions und vast outlay to win a share of public patronage.

Walker is at Kealejo, and finds the party too slow for him to act with them. The company have enlisted some one hundred soldiers to fight for thegovernment party. Among them is some from California, with Captain French, tvho was to have joined Walker. The Shippinq of Troops to Nicaragua? We understand that the acting Consul of the United .States at Creytown, Mr. Mason, has reported to the State Depart - mi nt that the Nicaragua Transit Company of this city are shipping troops by their steamers, in lurge numbers, from the United States to Nicaragua. He says that on the evening of the 15th July last, the steamer Star of the West arrived at Point Arenas with a body of forty-four privates and six officers, engaged in fc'ew York by M. Maroolola for the military service of hi* government, upon conditions that they should have a free [lasFsgc in the Transit Company's steamer, and if accept ed by the government, should be enlisted as soldiers of Nicaragua, and receive for their services at the rate of ten dollars monthly for each man, and between fifty and one hundred dollars for each officer The station where the men were to he enlisted was Costillo, and their wages for four months, the terms of the enlistment, are stipulated, says the Consul, to be paid by the Accessory Transit C'omi?any from money owed by them to the Nicaragua government. He says the soldiers have been enlisted, and ure now stationed at the fort of Costillo. They are mostly French and German residents of New York, (none of them Americans bjr birth.) anl arc under the command of Col. Gasyyuski. He also reports, upon the authority of one of the officers, that an additional company of recruits was expected to come at an early day. Since the Consul's communication was written, wc have advices of the arrival of another lot of soldiers, forty-six men and lour women, by the Northern Light, j and hound also for Costillo. From these facts we gather the impression that the Transit Company arc trying to build up a sort of East In ciu Company in Central America. They mean to I >gin by being hired by one or the other of th>' rival factions of that distracted country to defend it: if successful, they will continue to dofend it until they have engrossed all the political and mili tary power of the country. and this trading association, like its great prototype in the Fust, become* an indepen dent nationality, To bring libout this result, troops are enlisted and cannon ere shipped in the company's steam ers every voyage; but the strange thing about it is that Mr. MeKeon, whose concern for our neutrality laws de prives him of a great deal of his natural rest every night, it is said, should never have heard anything of these pro ceedings; that Jroops should have been enlisted, landed at Nicaragua, and their arrival reported at Washington before the Cerberus of our district hears a word about It. The occupancy and possession of Nicaragua by Yankees may be the I test thing that can happen to Central Ame rica. cad the Transit Company may be doing a good work In sending out "peace makers'' to quiet the dtsturbances among the rival clan- who claim the right to rule there; but if so. whence the hostility to the Kinney colonists V?

The fluid de scended hy the chimney, which la entirely demolished, and on the irn und floor divided, and passed off through the room* to the west and to the cant, breaking nearly every pane of glass in the house, and frolicking with the furniture. In North Rochester. Plymouth county, during the same shower, Mr*, Smiley, while in the act of closing a window, wan struck by "lightning and instantly killed. She was about 116 years of age. No mark of the fluid Wan perceptible on her person. A barn owned by Mr. Joseph Tolman, in Sliaron. was -truck by lightning during tin- shower, and consumed, together with about ten tons of hay, including the last lend, which had b? en "safely housed'' as the shower caino up. and was standing on the wagon. No insu rance. l uring the shower the lightning struck the flagstaff at the Kneeland stru t i nd of the freight depot of the Bos ton and Worcester Railroad, and shivered it to fragments. Two men at work nmr the spot were knocked down and so seriously injured that they will not be able to return lo work again tor p. week or ten days. <>n the line of the Boston and Maine Railroad, near Trading. there was. for a lew moments, quite ? severe hail storm At Taunton the rc-Mence of Sheriff Babbitt was struck, the chimneys and windows injured, and two children thrown down, one i t whom hud a shoe torn off.
