I learn that I was misinformed with reapect to
Mr. Ellsworth's son being appointed Charge to
Grenada, as this is not the case, but he haa been
appointed Charge to Sweden instead. I am aiao
informed that Mr Ellsworth, the Commissioner of
Patents, sent in his resignation cf that office, dated
prospectively some weeks ago, and the appointment
of his son was predicted upon the recommendation
of the memben of the Legislature of Indiana and
all the leading men of that State. His father baa
an estate in Indiana, and intends to retire thereto,
and offered his resignation to Mr. Polk immedi
ately after the inauguration. The Commissioner
ship of Patents lies between Mr. Bidlack and Mr.
Burke, ex-M. C.'s, aa I believe.
The New Yoik Post Office is now under consi
deration. Who will be appointed it ia difficult to
foretell, but I understand that Mr. Leonard, late
M. C. from New York, stands aa good, if not a bet
ter, chance than any one elae.
There are various competitors for the Marahal
bhip here still. Among them are Captain Ryndere,
ihe Urn Giovanni of the age, and Ganaevoort Mel
ville. Both are here as large aa life. Some of the
knowing ones say that the Don Giovanni Blind* aa
good a chance as any.
Considerable speculation haa been afloat here as
to the reason of the vint of James Kaox Walker
to Boaton and New York. He waa accompanied
by Mr. Corcoran, a broker of thia city, and Caleb
Cuahing. The most reasonable conclusion which
has been drawn is, that theBe gentlemen are on a
lteuben M. Whiting speculation?that ia, they are
gone to see about government depoaita, pet baaka,
and so forth, and so on. It is an intereating ques
tion to decide that, which of the banka will give
the largest commission to obtain the use of the de
posits, and at the same time give the moat effec
tive support to government ? It ia aaid that thia
positiota realized to Reuben M. Whitney, at one
time, some ten or fifteen thousand dollars a year.
Nice pickings those, though the progressive demo
cracy are opposed to banks.
The Post Master General and hia Firat Aaaiatant
are very busily engaged in examining and deciding
upon the bids fer contracts. I understand that very
Urge reductions indeed have been effected in the
bias for contracts?some being aa much aa one-half
and three-fourths lees than previously. I learn,
also, that there is no fear of any combination
amongst the contractors, ao aa to throw the maila
into conf usion : for I learn, from very good authori
ty, that the 35 contractors who signed the letter
addressed to the Post Master General, requeuing a
postponement of the contracts for a year, to which
he returned a negative, and from which arose a
fear that the contractora would combine and refuae
to take contracts? these 35, I understand, instead
of representing the body of the contractors, repre
sented only themselves, and sought only to obtain
advantages for themselves by their eourae, which,
however, they failed to do. The remainder of the
contractors were not consulted at all with reference
to the letter sent, and would net all of them have
joined in it, though many of them think the law
bears hardly upon them.
Coleman, of the National Hotel, ia famoua for
hia promptitude in catering for good things where
with to regale hia friends. Epicnrea hereabouts
were just beginning to wiah they were aa far South
as Charleston, in the hope that they might there
find green peas, &c , when lo ! to-day at dinner a
plentiful supply of green peas, with fresh lobsters,
and other early and unlooked for delicacies, graced
the board. A ferocious onslaught was immediately
made upon said peas, and each one seemed aa if he
were afraid there would be none left him, but
there were plenty and to spare. Coleman ia the
prince of landlords in thia region.

Executive Affairs?Virginia Elections?New York
The Fourth Auditor, Gen. MeC&lla, cornea out
in last night's Globe, with an elaborate and able
defence of himsell against the assaults of his politi
cal enemies in Kentucky. The General has been
particularly fortunate. He has had three great
triumphs. H: has put down Clay?he has pro
moted himself?and, at last, condescends to ton
bick and spike the enemy's guns. It is said that
Mr. Clay regards McCalla's success with Captain
Polk with undisguised chagrin and mortification.
And well he may?for, while such Presbyterian
puritanical politicians aB O'dullivan in the late
canvass affected a holy horror of personalities,
Gen. McCalla was not slow in depicting on the
stump, the wine-bibbing, gambling, and Sabbath
breaking propensities of the " Great Harry."?
How can Mr. Clav otherwise regard Captain Polk,
than as endorsing (he charges of McCalla, in hia
appointment to office. This appointment shows
conclusively that Capt. Polk has no disposition to
court the favor of the whigs, or the "embodiment
of whig principles," but as the successor of Old
Hickory, he will pursue his own course, having no
consequences to fear, irom having no ulterior de
signs to accomplish. ?
The war apatm of yesterday has subsided like a
fit of the epilepsy. We shall have no war, what
evej may be the necessity, till the meeting of Con
gress And we shall have no extra session, unless
circumstances may arise which may make such
extraordinary convocation imperatively necessary
tor the salvation of Texas. Oregon and Brazil aro
mere moonshine. Indeed, we believe that South
Carolina, at this moment, would accede to the giv
ing Queen Victoria a fee simple to the whole of
Oregon, provided she ceased tampering with the
Ceople of Texas. But the Cabinet present an un
roken front in behalf of Oregon, unless Mr. Ma
son may be slightly tinctured with the Diatnal
Swamp objections of Mr. Archer. Meantime,
there is an armistice in the negociations respecting
the Northwestern boundary, the settlement of
which promises to be infinitely more difiicnlt than
the Websterian-Ashburton boundaries of Maine.
The Virginia elections, (slips of which will be
furnished vou by the evening's train) appear to have
gone for the locofocos, tooth and nail. Hopea are
even enteriained that Botta is " headed, and
Th.H. Bayley of Wise's district is successful. Mr.
Rives is reported to be elected by a large majority
to the Legislature, the very start which he made in
public life thirty years ago, and which gronnd has
all to be travelled over again, before there is any
hope new of his returning to tne United States Se
They are busied in the Departments overhauling

straight. We shall certainly expect now some
thing to be done in the way of rota tion. The
Secretary of the Treasury and the Postmaster Ge

work cut out.

Humored J (tempt to Assassinate the President ?
Mr Elmore tledims the Mission to England?
IWi mill be Appointed ??Mr. Pickens, of S. C.
?Mr. Rhett, of 8. C.?Shordd Mr. Wutt be
Sent ??Oregon Negotiations, and Mr. Calhoun
? Would he not irithdraw his objections, and go
there to undertake the Settlement of the Oregon
Question f? Should he not be sent ?
There, was a rumor floating ahout'this morning,
that an attempt had been made ?on last evening to
assassinate President Polk, and that the man had
been apprehended and lodged in jail. On making
inquiry, however, it turned out that no attempt on
James K. Polk had been made at ail, but that the
report had arisen from the arrest of a crasy man,
who had beencntting up some antic at the White
House. It seems that eome poor fellow from Ohio,
(.?ami* to the White Hou?e, and insisted on provid
ing Martin, the porter, with a good men!, and, con
sequently he brought a couple of botcies of wine,
and laid them on the table in the East Room, and
then biought two loaves of bread, and displayed
them in the same plane, and was afterwards flaunt
ing about the house with a knife in his hand, and
when thev were looking for him up staira,he would
be down, and rice WM He gave them aome little
'rouble, and was rather crooked; but not being abu
to quiet him in any other way, he was marched to
the watchhouee and locked up, whence aroae this
TS trne that Mr. Elmore has declined the mis
sion to England. Conjecturea are now rife aa to
