Letter from ex-president Pierce. The following letter from ex-President Pierce to the late Senator Pearce, of Maryland, in regard to arbitrary arrests, has never before been published. The position assumed by ex- President Pierce is manly and decided: Concord, N. H. Jan. 15, 1861. My Dear Sir: I read with unusual interest and satisfaction the debate which occurred in the Senate on the 15th ultimo, upon the resolution of Mr. Trumbull, and desire to express my thanks for the seitutions of sovereign States--to foster sectional distrust and animosity, or to inaugurate conflict between different parts of the Confederation, and thus to weaken unity of feeling, interest, and purpose. If on the other hand, they are guilty, the law will conflict adequate punishment, whatever that may be, as it should do. But how long is such durance, without a hearing, to be their allotment. I am, very truly, your friend, Pierce. Hon. James A. Pearce, U. S. Senator, Washington, D. C.
