Later from South America.

--The steamship Ariel, from Aspinwall 16th instant, arrived at New York, Tuesday, with the mails and treasure — the latter to the amount of $1,225,217--which left San Francisco on the 1st, and news from the west coast of Mexico, New Granada and the South Pacific republics. Her advices from California have been anticipated by the overland express.

In New Granada it would appear the government continues to triumph, though the news is, as usual, conflicting. Dates from Santa Martha are to the 4th inst. It had been besieged by the rebels for eleven days preceding that date, and considerable damage was done by the bombardment. General Jones, United States Minister to New Granada, was detained there, being unable to proceed to Bogota. All the States except those in Mosquera's interest, had voted for President. So far, Arboleda has a majority over General Herran.

From the South Pacific we learn that President Castilla of Peru had a narrow escape from assassination in Lima on November 23d. There is nothing new about the United States claims. Efforts are to be made to raise the frigate Callao, which was sunk off the port of that name some time last fall. The new revised constitution has been promulgated. Bolivia has not yet declared war against Peru, though the Bolivian Minister of the Interior recommends that it should be done immediately. Chile is quiet. It is thought the Araucanian Indian rebellion will be easily suppressed. The extra session of Congress had adjourned.
