Washington,Sept 12 ^1 a m.^The^president has received the resigna^^tion of James W. Tanner as com^miasioner of pensions. In a letter^conveying the resignation it is said^the commissioner writes that he recognizes^that differences exist between himself and^tr.e wiwuj wf the interior respecting the^administration of the pension bureau and^theae differences being radical, in the in-^trrest of a thoroughly satisfactory adminix^tration of the office he should resign.
ADay or Conference*.
Washington.Sept. 11.^The crisis in^the relations between Secretary Noble and^Pension Commissioner Tanner, which, ac^^cording to the former, has been reached to^day. continues without settlement at a late^hour to-night. I'pon the best authorit) M^may be said the commissioner has not been^removed, nor has his resignation been re^^quested by the president The same au^^thority says, what has been patent for^some time, that serious differences have^arisen between Secretary Noble and Com^missioner Tanner over questions concern^^ing the administration of the pension bu^^reau, but not in any wise affecting the^commissioner's personal action in the sense^of imputing any corruption in his acts.^This same authority conceded that these^matters related principally to the reratinss^of pension employers and officials of the^bureau and others, and to certain state-^menu credited to the commission in inter^^views and speeches. That is the condition^of affairs to-night, but when the authority-^quoted was asked if it would probeblv re^^main so, be declined to commit himself,^saying be bad no intention of entering the^field of prophecy.
Theair has been full of rumors all day re^^specting the case of Commissioner Tanner,^and the unanimous impression is a ehaDge^is imminent The commissioner has not^t^. .-n at his office to day. He spent most^of the afternoon at the white house in e ^n-^sultation with the president and Secretary^Noble. The secretary is reported to have^said the president must decide which one^of the two he will retain in his present po^sition, the comnis^ioner or himself, hut he^will not talk of the matter to newspaper^people, and the conimU'ioner at this time^istq iallj non communicative Since yes^^terday i he disposition of the case has^been under advisement at the white^house. Secretary Noble has had sev^^eral conferences with the presideut, and^Secretary Tracy, who is general.)' accepted^as the commissioner's friend and advocate,^has had many hearings, but the result of^them all has not been declared.
Itis generally believed the principsl^topic of discussion at these conferences^was what to do with Tanner lu case a^change shall be ms.de io the office of com^^missioner of pen*iona Two appointments^have been ^r^1 In this connection,
outsideot rfficial circles^United States^marshal for the southern district of^New York and register of the treasury.^The first, it is said. Commissioner Tanner^can have. If he leaves the pension bureau.^n-iHiout any doubt As to the other office,^the president is quoted as saying he bad no^intention of removing Uen Rosecrans. It^was said to-day, however, that the presi^^dent was ignorant until yesterday of the^fact that Rosecrans is drawing two salaries^from the government, one as register of^the treasury and another as a retired briga^^dier-general The gentleman who men^^tioned this to him said the president was^much surprised at learning it. Tanner is^reported as being very reluctant to return^to lirooklyn.
Withthe rumors of a change has come^a discussion of the possible successor^to Commissioner Tanner. Senator Hiscock^is credited with pushing the claims of ex-^Pension Agent Pool of Syracuse, for the^place. Ex Govei nor Foster of Ohio, who^waa alleged to have originated the scheme^to provide (or Commissioner Tanner, by-^making him register of the treasury, is said^to be supporting lien. Charles Brown of^Cincinnati, who was a prominent candi^^date for appointment with Tanner. It is^the general impression that New York will^not again be favored if a change is made.
PresidentHarrison, according to a dis^^patch to a New York paper, said to a^frierd yesterday that Corporal Tamier^would have to go out of the pension ^ :\\ ^^^He said he was reluctant to part with him^on account of the embarrassment it would^place, him in, considering the endorsement^given the commissioner at the Milwaukee^encampment: hut he add-ri. ^It waa al'o-^gether out of the question to keep him.^^The president said be had repeatedly^talked to Commissioner Tanner and urged^him to give hi* tongue less exercise, tint^that everywhere he went and upon the^slightest provocation he put bis foot^Into it
Itis understood the commissioner's res^^ignation is in the hands of the president^and his services will be disposed of within^a very few days. For ten days or more it^has simply t ^^ a question of how to drop^Tanner without offending the soldiers.
(ne report to-night waa that President^Harrison had advised Commissioner Tan^^ner to resign. (^en. Alger, commander-^in-chief of the G A R .Gov. Foraker, of^Ohio, and Commander Wilson of Kansas,^are all said to to have telegraphed Tanner^urging him not to resign. These mes^^sages, together with the influence of his^wife, are said to be Instrumental in hold^^ing t!ie eonmWsionar from following^the advice of the president To night a^committee of the (^ A. R of the district,^beaded by Gen. Burdette. ex commander^in chief, called at the white bouse to see^th^- president in behalf of the pension com^^missioner, but it was a'ter be had retir d^.Several G. A. R friends spent the evening^with the commissioner, but they declined^so say what, if anything, was the result^their conference. The commissioner^steadily d^ nied himself to newspaper men

The^only trans-Atlantic steamer which arrived^up to I o'clock this morning was tbe Cali^^fornia. The other steamers due to-day^are the Wisconsin. State of Georgia and^Hammonia. The passengers on all these^steamers will undoubtedly have inte. eat^^ing tales to tell, as they must have en^^countered tbe fiercest of tbe gale.
Reportsfrom along the Jersey shore^show wrecks are every where, there being^sixteen between Baruegat light bouse and^Sandv Hook. Tbe water along tbe East^and North rivers is not so high 'his morn^^ing as at fl aid tide yesterday. Many cel^^lars and basements are still flooded and^business at the docks and along the water^front is still being carried ou under great^difficulty.
Vesselsat anchor aiong the South street^piers have tbe appearance of having passed^through a cyclone. Tbe rigging of many^is torn into sbrtds and spats and masts are^lismautled, while the waves beat with^great fury against the vessels' sides, even^as they lay at tbelr pier*. Tbe telegraph^wires between here and Sandy Hook are^still down, const quently the greatest un^^easiness is felt at the Marine Exchange tor^the aafety of vessels in the orbng. In a^round about way it is learned that only-^two vessels had come up to quarantine^since last night They were the^new Morgan line steamer Eimar from^New Orleans, and tbe Hamburg^Meamship company's California The Li-^mar was detained twelve hours outside the^pier by rough water. Tee vessel encoun^^tered a hurricane op. the 9Lb Inst While^there was no serous damage sustained,^things on board were made lively and the^decks were lasted fore and alt. The Cali^^fornia has on board a big load of immi^^grants.
Tbenew German steamer Kaiser Wil-^helm, which left her dock at Hoboken yes^^terday, was obliged to lav to this side of^quarantine over night The vessel pasi-ed^^ut to sea at o o'clock this morning. Tbe^regular weekly fleet of trans-Atlantic^steamers followed soon after.
Privateadvices from the health officers^down the bay show tbe storm at quarantine^is continuing with great fury. The wind^^a blowing a beavy gale and seaa wa*b^over the surrounding walls. Along tbe^Battery wall tbe waves dashed tar into the^park. The iron railing surrounding the^wall alongside tbe dock commissioner's^building at tbe pier was carried away,^while tbe dock at Castle garden was being^orupletely washed. The custom house^juarters at the end of the emigrant dock^were completely filled with water, and the^landing agent's office was submerged. Tbe^rainfall this morning was 60 100 ol an inch.

They were rescued^hen almost eibausted.^A report from quarantine says a number^of steamers proceeded to sea to-day. in^^cluding two Bremen steamers, ai d the^Cunard line steamers. Tbe pilots on board^these vessels will undoubtedly be carried^off, as no pilot boats are in sight to land^them. Another report from quarantine^says tbe storm continues with the wind^freshening from the east northeast and a^biab sea running.
Greatdamage is being done to property^along tbe S aten lslaud abore. Several^steamers and pilot boats are anchored in^Graveseud bay outward bound. In all^bine pilots were carried away to-day on^steamers. Tbey could not meet any pilot^boats to take them off on account ot the^storm.
