I HtisU3ntms. imon bclt's Column, Mr. Clark, American Minister to Gua Cite Unnhuttuu (Sxpw; Republican Mass Convention. As it will be seen in another column, a Republican Mass Conventien of the 5th Election District is called by a very large number of as staunch and true Republicans as could be found anywhere. This Convention is to meet in Manhattan at 1 o'clock, P.

and we sincerely wish that its result will be as honorable and praiseworthy as its object certainly is. There are a few men among us who claim the right of the highest offices for themselves, and of the secondary ones for their dear friends, regardless of the doctrine so well established in all free governments of equal rights. One of the questions to be presented to the Convention for final decision, is to be this very ludicrous and abortive claim, and we hope that the decision will be such as to convince them that sculldug-gery is not exactly the tiling which suits Simon Abeles, Esq. We call the attention of our numerous readers to the new advertisement of the above gentleman, of Leavenworth city. We are informed by a particular friend, who is competent to judge on such matters, that Mr.

Simon Abeles has really for sale, at extremely low prices, the largest and best selected stock of goods ever brought to that city. Will not our readers, and especially the citizens of Riley county, when in Leavenworth, give a call to Mr. Abeles, examine his stock, and select what they need, in order to patronize those merchants who contribute so liberally towards the support of their paper at home? We shall always be particularly obliged to those among our readers, who, feeling an interest in the success our paper, will contribute 'to it by encouraging the mercantile community to advertise in our columns. Thanks. Hon.

Marcus J. Parrott will please accept our thanks for two large, interesting and elegantly illustrated volumes of the Explorations for a Railroad Route from the Mississippi River to the Pacific." We take this occasion to congratulate our friend Parrott on his triumphant election to the Congress of the United States. Long; live Marcus J. Parrott.

Wise, arrived here at 7 o'clock this evening, and will leave for Charlestown on a special train at 10 o'clock. On arriving at Charlestown, troops will go into encampment, and remain until after the execution. There is nothing confirmitory of the rumor of a body of men having crossed the Ohio river near Wheeling. Washington, Nov. 20.

Nothing can as yet be positively ascertained concerning the precise object of sending large bodies of troops to the Rio Grande, further than the protection of that frontier from the attack of the forces of Cortinas, to utterly destroy which is the purpose of the 'Administration, as it was but recently supposed in official quarters that the two companies from Fort Clark and one from Baton Rouge would be sufficient to check the movements of that brigand. The augmentation of troops just ordered has Naturally excited suspicions of other contemplated measures. Various speculations are indulged in; but the most plausible theory founded on certain revelations deemed to be reliable, is that Spain, France and England meditate prompt action for the satisfaction of claims in whicl their subjects are interested, and which may involve the national existence of Mexico, or the substitution of a monarchy under the protection of these powers. In view: of these circumstances and probabilities, the United States may feel constrained to occupy the northern part of Mexico to secure satisfaction for the claims of our own citizens against that country, as well as for the security of Americans on the frontier. From all that can be ascertained, it is fair to presume that some of the vessels of the Home Squadron will soon proceed to Vera Cruz and other ports of Mexico.

Indeed, this seems to be certain, so interesting are the reported purposes of and England now regarded in official quarters. Nov. 21. The War Department today countermanded the orders for six companies of troops from Fort Monroe and five from Fort Leavenworth to proceed to Brownsville, there appearing, at the latest accounts, no necessity for proceeding thither, apart from the object of affording protection to the Rio Grande frontier. The speculations as to the employment of so large a force', is thus dissipated.

Nov. 22. In consequence of the recent occurrences on the frontier, a suggestion has beet? made to the Federal Government of Mexico, from a distinguished, quarter, that immediate steps be taken with the view of entering iuto an agreement with the Government of the United States for the punishment of such outlaws as Cortinas and his men. The main feature of the arrangement is to treat offences committed on either side of the Rio Grande as against the peace of the Republics the parties to be tried and punished according to the laws of the country iu which they may be arrested. New York, Nov.

21. The latest computations at Albany, founded upon complete official returns from all the counties of the State, New York and Kings excepted, 'increase the majority of Jones, for Sec'y of State; while they leave the result of the Canal Commissioner in doubt. At present the majorities stand, Jones 1162, Richmond 1004, Skinner 376, Forrest 450. It will only be when the full returns of New York and Kings counties are received that the result will be ascertained. The official returns of the New Jersey election show that the majority for Olden is 1629.

The vote in Morris county was the largest ever cast there. The steamship North Star from As-pinwall arrived at this port to-day. On her outward passage she was on the reef at French Keys for six days, and, in order to relieve upwards of four hundred tons of coal were thrown overboard. All the passengers Were landed before the ship got off. The Panama Star of the 10th inst.

contains later intelligence from Chili. The most important items relate to a severe shock of an earthquake at 8 A. on the 5th of October, which was felt throughout the Republic, but most severely in the province of Copiapo. The direction of the shock was from Southeast to North-west, and the duration was about nine minutes. Considerable damage was done in the city of Copiapo and the port of Callera, overthrowing some houses and leaving a great many others in a ruinous condition.

Fortunately no lives were lost. The Copiapo and Callera railroad has suffered some damage, but its repairs will be easy and not very expensive. At Callera the sea retired several times from the coast, leaving a beach of one hundred and fifty yards, which caused a panic among the inhabitants they fleeing affrighted to the neighboring hills. Fortunately the sea returned to its place without doing any violence. No great losses occurred, and the Province of At-achama will soon recover with the produce of its mines, which are stated to be in a very rich condition.

temala, was severely ill. Some attempts at revolution in Costa Rica had been suppressed. Mr. Dimit-ry, the American Minister, had recognized the new government. Nov.

22 The Republican Convention nominated Geo. Opdyke for Mayor, last night. Harper's Ferry, Nov. 19. Various rumors have been afloat to-day as to the approach of armed men from Ohio, in the direction of Wheeling.

The respectable source from which the report originated, has created some excitement about Charlestown, but none here. Our people are very quiet, not expecting any attempt at a rescue, nor do they fear any force, however formidable, because they are prepared for any emergency. The numerous fires about Charlestown have induced the citizens to anticipate some annoyance. They are more easily excited, but no one is at all afraid of the result, even if the attempt at rescue should be made. Col.

Davis has made the most ample provision for any number of the enemy that may make a call. We learn that more troops are being demanded from the Governor. This may be as much to protect the prisoners from the populace, as anything else. As far as we can ascertain, there is no cause to apprehend danger, Nov. 20, (Evening.) The fresh excitement was caused by the arrival from Bellair, near Wheeling, of a man named Smith Crane, who stated that he incidentally overheard a conversation between some men wrho had organized a band of 500 men to march to the release of John Brown and other prisoners at Charlestown.

He immediately set out for the Ferry to apprise the inhabitants of the fact. It was also rumored at Charlestown that a fight had occurred in Clark county between some citizens and a party of strangers, and a detachment of troops was sent to the scene of disturbance. On the receipt of these rumors, dispatches were sent by Col. Davis to Gov. Wise for 500 more troops, who have arrived here this evening, the Governor being with them, and our town is again bristling with bayonets, and considerably excited.

Gov. AVise says it will give the Virginia military experience, if the rumors should all prove unfounded, so that they will know how to protect their border hereafter, if occasion should occur. The Governor, ivith three companies, has just started for Charlestown. The others will remain here until to-morrow. Charlestown, Nov.

21. The excitement of Saturday has subsided, and no suspicious parties have yet been discovered. Gov. A ise has letters from intelligent and responsible parties North and West, assuring him of the organization of parties for the rescue of the prisoners. The presence of the military has restored confidence and calmness to the public mind.

The military are preparing an encampment. The Gov. will return to Richmond to-morrow. We have cavalry, artillery and infantry sufficient to encounter a small army of sympathizers. It is rumored that Gov.

Wise has received a dispatch from Gov. Chase of Ohio, informing him that a large body of men, numbering from 600 to 1000, are arming for a rescue under John Brown, and will undoubtedly start for Charlestown. Gov. Wise is said to have replied that if he (Chase) allowed them to cross the line, he would enter proceedings against him on the charge of treason. A dispatch was also received on Saturday from U.

S. Marshal, Johnson, of Cleveland, Ohio, stating that from 600 to 1000 men were fitting but for a rescue in that State under John Brown, commander. New Orleans, Nov. 20. The steamer Arizona has arrived with Brazos dates to the 17th.

She brings 8753,000 in specie. Brownsville is safe. Captain Tobin, with 80 rangers, arrived on the 13th. Thirty men arrived from the Cutter Dodge, and fifty troops from Baton Rouge left Brazos for Brownsville on the 16th, making nearly 300 troops and volunteers now at Brownsville. On the arrival of Tobin, Cortinas' chief officer, held as prisoner, was immediately hanged without trial.

Nov. 21. The steamer Mexico, from Indianola, has arrived here with $16,000. Private advices from Brownsville to the 16th confirm the news brought by the Arizonia. Philadelphia, Nov.

22. John D. Wiiislow, agent of Sackett, Davis jewelers of New York, committed suicide yesterday by shooting himself. He had entrusted a box of jewelry, valued at 63,000, to a colored porter, to carry to the office of Draper, Tifit and the be not being delivered, it was supposed to have been stolen. The police were informed of the loss, but they were unable to recover the box.

Before the commission of the deed, Winslow wrote letters to his mother in Providence and his employer, arrd also Mr. Arnold. This morning the box was recovered, it having been left, by mistake, at another establishment in Market street, MANHATTAN, KANSAS: SATURDAY. MORNING, NOV. 26, 1859.

Our County Political Difficulties. When we first commenced the jmbli-cation of our Paper in this city, and became aware of the calamitous fact that our Republican friends were unfortunately divided into two factions, socially and politically averse to each other, we formed the resolution to devote all our energies, and to use all that influence which is so justly possessed by the press, to effect ar reconciliation by uniting the two dissenting elements of our Party. We believed. it to- be our duty to sacrifice personal rreferences, and all other advantages of a particular and individual character, to the general interests and welfare of the people. What we considered to be our duty then, we most firmly believe to be our duty to-day.

As the public good is always to be promoted in preference to 'any private advancement, so the union of our people, which is the very source and fountain of our party success, is to be defended and sustained in advance of all other considerations. Moreover, we are sorry to be compelled to confess that so far we have labored in vain our two factions having of late been harder at work than ever, and have succeeded in bringing about such a general dissatisfaction, discontent and extreme degree of anger, that, in our opinion it will be exceedingly difficult to neutralize, quiet or pacify it. Time and again we have addressed ourselves to the leaders of these two factions, insisting on the absolute necessity of harmony, and union. Time and again we have called to their, minds the irreparable evils which, by fomenting and encouraging such a demoralizing course, would unhappily befall our noble cause. Time and again we have declared that we could not be persuaded, and no intelligent man could, that those persons who persisted' in promoting the existing di visions were deserving anything but utter contempt and opposition from all time patriots but to no avail their decision is inexorably taken to fight against their Republican brothers their motto is to win or die, and no one can check or restrain their suicidal career! Yet, while the disgraceful' and unnatural war is raging, and the triumph of the Republican cause in this election District seems to be doomed to a complete ruin through the unlimited ambition of a few individuals, who attempted to secure their nomination to office by an open act of rebellion against the publicly expressed will of the Republicans of our city, we still are very far from despairing of a speedy general pacification and thorough settlement of our present difficulties for if the extreme danger is apparently approaching, the extreme and true remedy is also at hand.

Next Thursday the Republican Mass Convention of this, the 5th Election District, will assemble. It will be its duty to review the action of the Delegate Convention which met on the 19th and which caused so much exasperation and general ill feeling. It shall either ratify or annul, in whole or in part, the nominations made by said Delegate Convention, and in either case, as good Republicans, we must be ready to abide by the sovereign voice of the people. We are professedly the defenders of the fairly manifested will of the majority of our party, as we shall always oppose- and denounce, with all our power, the intrigues of those wire pullers who are impudent enough to attempt the de feat of the popular will. In the meantime we earnestly recom mend to ourRepublican friends of this is calmness of mind and prudence of action.

Let every one attend the Mass Convention and take active part in its deliberations, while, in your mind, be firmly decided that in no circumstance whatever shall you allow yourselves to support any other candidates but those who shall be the nominees of the Repub lican Convention. During the present Napoleon's reign, the French have constructed railways to the extent of more than 4,500 miles. our people, and impudence the means of obtaining the favors and honors which are at its exclusive disposal. Let ns have as large a Convention as possible. Come one Come nil Thanksgiving Day in Manhattan.

This day of joy and prayer was generally observed by our community in the true spirit of its institution. A union religious meeting was held in the Congregational Church, where the resident Pastors of the Methodist Episcopal, Congregational and Baptist Churches conducted together the services of the day. An excellent sermon was preached by Rev. Mr. Kermott, of the Baptist Church, Avho abundantly proved to us that thanks were due to the Author of all good gifts, and that in serving our Maker, and in being faithful to him, we would call on Us, and on Manhattan, his choicest blessings, Mr.

Kermott is a clergyman of great talents and zeal, and much respected by our people generally. Revs. Blood and Paulson offered to" God fervent and appropriate prayers in be half of the people, and the choir, with Mrs. Fanny Robinson presiding at the organ, sang several hymns and anthems with perfect precision and melody. I the evening a dance and supper was, giv en by Mrs.

Mary Miller, the accomplished landlady of the new Hotel, where the numerous assembled guests enjoyed themselves until a late hour. The Republican County Convention, called to nominate County Officers, as provided for in the Constitution, met in Manhattan on the 19th inst. and organized by electing John Pipher, of Man hattan, President, and Davies Wilson, of Ogden, Secretary.
