Chrrupond ant Sulycct' ... 4 Ike sperulati. ns now so generally Indulged in respect - in, the West India fleet, and the interference of Groat Britain in Ike affairs of Central America, may give in terest to the oorresponi cuoe between the Urltlah Vice Or mi! and Col. Kinney, on he oceasion of the latter'n attempt to establish an inde pen lent |ov*r*ment on the Meeqelto shore. No account ol it has as yet appeared, an* ita principal ralue consists in the fact that it ia the latest and noat positive indication of the pretensions of Great Britain to the co-ordinate sovereignty of that part of the world. Bef> re giving an outline of this correspondence, I may M veil meniion the fact that in 1860, when the people of Ban Jusn del Norte first organised a municipal govern ment, their right to do so wus txpies?ly recogniaed by the Biiti.-b Couful General for Central America, ac'iug as the agent lor the pie-ent Mosiultj King. When, however, the constitution was 'rained by them, the same 0 insul Gen arai, t'r. Jas. Green, in behalf of the British government, withheld his sanction from it, and the government organ ised under it, on the ground, as is understood, of its being too much on tbe model of the constitution of the United States. Not regarding his approving smile as essen'iai to their political eilstence, the inhabitants adopted their re publican constitution without the slightest modiflcati >n. To show how Utile consequence was attached to the British Consul General's action, I may remark that on his declining to ratify the doings of the people, he was lu fcrmcd by the gentleman whj presented the document for Ws consideration, that, tho.igh it wo dd be advisable for kim to ratily it, his refusal to do so would be or no con tinence. And so It proved. For the n-w g .vernoient went into successful operation a4 once and Its prosperity con tinned uueheckod till the time of the groat naval achieve ment which has so illustrated the annals ol Franklin Meree's administration. Mr. Webster, as Secretory of State, form i By reoogn ized'heauomalousgove roment of the town sd<i not a murmur of ilissatUtoctlon was afterwards heard from Great Brbnin. Yet. al this lime the American ?esidents, 'hough in a decided minority, were doing more than all other agencies o extend the influence of the Unit ed State* government throughout Central America, not enly by the example of I heir superior thril t and enterprise, but by means of secet *fiiliat?-d societies, of which the recognised heed whs in Pun Juan. One ot these societies, tailed "the Gsllluiypers," (the etymology of which, doubtless, expressed their independence of Mosquito sovereignly,) was at the time of the bombardment, do tog won. era in Nicaragua, and in a perfectly peaceful and fcglltaate way For tire overthrow of the e movements, hy ti c dest.notion of the 11 tie commonwealth of Grey town, the administration of Mr. I'ieroo is responsible. What is remarkable, too, is that Great Britain, notwith ?tor dii g her assumption ot the protectorate of the Mos quito shore, has not only failed to exact reparation for the onUage of Captain Holllns, but bus never been at all strenuous in prosreutirg the claims of Bri ish born ctti srus for losses by the b- inbardruent, although among the kuildh K? d> slroyed was the residence of Ibo British Cou * I over *1 ici. ih>- flsg of Her Majesty was then waving Me'- protecting folds." She has 'inly protested. How e' us see what she has done In the case of Colo nel Kinney s eie. tion as "Civil and MiU'ary Governor of San Juan del Norte and ito Territories," as the designa tion was. t should he remembered that the British tri ?ate hurydlce, of twenty-six guns was in port, while the naval force of the United Status had no representative. m> that Great Britain c mid ea-ily have thwarted Colon-l Kici.ty, and have had things her own way. On Septem ber IV Gi v. Kinney formally notified to Mr. Geddos, the Briti-h Consul tor -an Juan the formatioa of the new government, tom'eiing also his "ofiicial cooperation m upholding the public order." ? To this the reply was a formal protest, duted September T4. against Col. Klni ey's "assumption of authority' as Governor ot Greytowu, signed by Capt. Turletnn, of the harydici-. and Consul G' ddcs, in the name of theit go. verrmeut the ground of tie protest being that the said ??assun.ption" was an infringement of the right* of the Merqutto sovereign, anil in contravention of toe Clayton Balwer treaty.>ing the protest was a longer commuDica toon horn Captain Tarleton to Mr. Geddes. reiterating the ?fejeeM'-n* contained in he protest, and mentioning snm-' ethers ol a less Important nature.

[From the run Francisco Herald, Oct. 21.] Forre time ago, in order to secu>e a proper representa tion in the hulls of the national Congress, the project for the formation of leveral nc-v States on those shores was openly and freely discussed. The vast country lying | wist of the Rocky Mouutuins, composed of Utah, Wash ington and Oregon Territories, and *he State of Califor nia, is at pre.-eut represented by two Senators, two mem bers of Congress, and three Relegates without the right to vote. Such a representation is by no mesas adequate to sccuro for us tfiut weight, in the national councils to whiih we are most certainly entitled. The smsllness of the representation allowed to the State of California is particularly most unjust. The recent election demon strated the fact that there aie on'y tea States of tne Vnicn out tf tho thirty -ono ihat poll n larger vote than we do, snd that if the same ratio of re presentation prevailed hero as in the Srutliern States, we would be entitled to no less than ten leprerentatives to Congress, or eight, according to the ratio oi represen'atfi u in tlie Northern States, it is eerteiuly by uo means flattering to our vaniiy that, it ehould require fitly tiiou-ant Vo'ers in the Btate of C*li huoii to elect a lopre-rntativo to Congress, wulle the same piiv.h go is accorded to i v> <y ten thousand voters in the Southern S*:?t? s, and e* ery twelve thousand In the Northern Blstes. H is to be bopou that those facts will be laid befote CV ngre-s at its ndxt session, and that no ofToriu wid be spend to secure fhr us that to which in jo-tire we are eo*i'ird. It will not do to trilie always with the people of this coast, fliere is a point at which patience reason to be a virtue. At tho present time we aie denied a pri per represm'atl n in Congress?we are romp* III d to | ay three linn s more postage than the citi rens of any of the other Bintes of the l.'nion, though w ? are within tlie thiee thou- ai d mites prescribed in the rules <-f *he I'ost Office Depar-tmrn*, and. nhouId therefore lie called upon to pay hut three renin upon every letter. We have no geographical connection with the Kant?wo are com pletely l-o ati d from the rest of the Union, and in case of danger fioni without would have t > depend upon our own right aims for protection. We are, it is true, united to the people of the ia-t by ties of nlood; but if measures be not adopted to^bring us into closer communication with our f-ii-ter States hy means of a railroad which would have probably been c mn.en-ed before now hut fir tl.e obstacles thrown lu the war by the present mineral and narrow-minded administration, these ties will be come weaker cay hy nay till they are finally enapded. The ties of consanguinity are, however, very strong. It requires a violent Mugging Ito sever them,'but the c rodent dropping will drill n nole through the hardest rock, and though the-e ligaments of relationship may riniain unimpatred in our time, it i* hy no means certain they will retain their strength la coming generation*.

The different com uuiru ."uim. ine different com mwrcial Powers have In geueral shown themselves de posed to reply to the appeal o Denmark; but the govern ment of the Union appears resolved uot to lisien to any conciliatory propoel-ton. We are assured that it has re plied to the project of a eoulerenco only by re affirming Its retfumlnation to consider all the existing treaties at ol no value, and to enter, wi-hnut payment of the toll, the waters of ibe Battle, as soon as the new year sets in. What aggiaraies this rest.Union is the tact that it seems to conceal on the part of the Uaited States another ovject than the principle ot the liberty ot 'he seas, which is the piatext for it, or even the material interests ol Ameiicaa commerce. Ihe right is evidently against the United States. An mmeoioi isl possession back the urln iple of the Sound dues lar beyond the treaty of 182tl, con duded do tw< ?n the Aninicsn Union ami Denmark. That treaty itself was an acknowledgment and oou?eeration of it. The>e is no reason to d< uj log to-d?y a pit ciple which the Union itself admitted marly thirty years ago. As to the pec utsry inte enl of the U idled Suites in the matter, the table which we published In oar last aorres pcnrence trim Copenhagen proves how email and insig nificant it is. In thiee years the American taartne paid to Detrrark only 4 ?00 t unce whilst io the sauie space ol ime llie great European Hates have each paid toll to tic amount ot neariy 'AO IKjO francs.

RANDOLPH. Richmond. Va., Nov. 20,1855. John Minor Botta and our Richmond Corrtapon dent?The Richmond Diapatch and the Irish Movement, tpc., tpc. In your paper of Sunday morning, which I have just received,1 find aletter from Mr. J.M.Botta, ani madverting pretty severely upon my remarks rela tive to his aspirations for Mr. Mason's seat in the United States Senate. He denies in umnistakoable terms his purpose to bo a candidate for that office, us he did indirectly with reference to other pub lic offices in the gift of the people of Virginia, while, us is well known, every effort of his friends was di rected to the accomplishment of the very ends which Le himself feigned to disregard. If your corres pondent had spoken of him in a like connection with reference to the office of Governor of this State, member of Congress for this district, or even mem ber of the Legislature, certain it is that he would have manifested the same disregard, have uttered the same denials, while his public actions were shaped with particular reference to these positions. Whether or not this is so with respect to the posi tion of United States Senator remains to Le seen when the election con cs up. In fact, there is no office, from that of member of the House of Dele gate- up to the Presidency of the United States, to which,if his leal feelings were known, he does not aspire; and if questioned upon the subject a denial is tcitain to be given, when at the same moment cveiy exeitiou is being made to carry out his am bilious views. Be a si red that without due authority I should net hove associated the name of llotts with an office of ri ch importance. 1 was myself incredulous upon the subject, and had the it.f -rmation emanated front a less1eliable source I would have received it with s< me doubt?doubt abstract from my couviction that there is no office in the gift of the people or g( venment for which he would not aspire I should not of course have predicated any statement of a par ticular character upon this general impression. 1 un der; (and too well the duties of a correspondent to venture upon any slight grounds statements in re paid to public men, and, more especially, in regard to Botts, who would be anything and everything for the sake of office- He says '1 have no means ot knowing your correspondent; but, ii 1 ain not misinformed as to the perHon, he is not on ly a loreipn political opponent, but one who is altogether a stranger to me.'

That would be throning water on a drowned nit. truly. No human power, not all the electricity in nature, could for one im-taut resuscitate into life the defunct carcass of Botts. To seek, therefore, to inflict iuiury upon him ?a purpose which 1 here solemnly disclaim? would be an attempt no leas vain than that of killing a dead man. How far liis denial of any purpose upon his part to get into the shoes of Mr. Mason is sinct re, remains to he sten when the election for United States Sen ator shall come up. If his name will uot lie before tfce Le gislature in connection with that office, the indications, as well aa the information furnished me, an- tnily deceptive.
