Washington, Feb. 15, 184S. Yon will have gathered from the papers "Sufficiently full particulars of the great tventof the week at Washington, which has been, the arrival of the Presidentelect. 3 happened to be absent on the day of his arrival, and not comprehending that any particular importance attached to the oc currence, did not return in time to be a witness of the pageantry of hi reception, or the loving kindness of his friends. His advance towards the capitol has of course excited some little commotion at the promt- nent points along his route. It appear! fenerally to have been the wish o! Mr. oik to provoke as little parade as possible, Ue did not visit either Pittsburgh or Haiti- more, though strongly urged tc do so by "half a dozen committees from both placets, When ou Thursday nightHe reached Wash- ineton, he was rret and addressed hv some sikesmant.f the Locofoco associations of the city, to whom he replied in n cautions -and ''democratic" tone and manner. He "was then escorted by the rank and file of said associations to Coleman's, where he now remains. It 's -aid that he has not been plagued by office-seekers to any in- convenient extent; that, in fact, since he reached his present quarters, be has not once heard the sound ol' the word. No of Monday last, between Sheppard, of Uir course brings with him a large retinue of mingiiain,and Jackson, alias the American gentlemen, who accompany him, only out Deer, near Barnet. Jackson, who was the of pure and disinlerested regard and ef- w hi nor, ran eleven miles within the hour, fection for his person and character.

Mr. Robert Arm "v.aL.ijr strong, of Na hvilie, Tcnn., is a!o among the suite of the President elect. He will most probably bo made Consul to Liver pool. The contest which has been going on be tween Mr. Buchanan and the Vice Presi dent, regarding the Secretary of State-ship, is necessarily auno ji urougiu to a ciose, as wniortunateiy very precarious, tiie time i:; near when Mr. Pulk mu-t make I Mr. Orecnhow", the medical attendant his decision, Mr, Dallas desires to see Mr. ' of -Miss Martineuu, has published an eluho Walker, bis brother in law, and who had rate account of his patients case. His In'm selected at Baltimore as the Locnlbro opinion is that. Mesmerism had nothing tn candidate, ennninted to that post, while tin ft lends f Mr. Buchanan are contending for him with equal determination. There seems to have been great foundation for the statement of Mr. Polk's organ, at Nash ville, that he would call to his Cabinet no oiK1 who had icon talked of or thought of for the presidenOT, This rule would ex elude, among others, both Calhoun and Buchanan; and perhaps it was hit upon for this very purpose. But it WtMld not ex clude Mr. Walker; and Indeed, by thus narrowing the range of Competition and pretension, would signally advance the claims of Mr. Walker to the first pltico in the Cabinet. Nothing as yet, however, appears to have been finally determined upon. Mr. Calhoun Is recovering from his late severe attack of Ins habitual disease, and II friends by no means consent to with draw him from the field, for Mr. Walker or 'any body else. It is usual for ministers, to re.-iign at the coming in of n ndW president, a custom with which all the present sccre t'lries will dOulVtless comply. If the Presi dent, that is to be, desire their contlnu 'ice, he signifies his wishes to them before hand, Mr. Minion, Secretary of the Navy, will probably remain in office, Mr. Cah houfl may do so, or he may retire iffiflmdl a ely, and return to the Senile, There is n.ibiderable talk of Weiler's going into the 'Cabinet, ft is lobe hoped that there is no foundation for Ids report, for it would be n .itttional humiliation to see a man eleva ted to that station, w utterly Ignorant o church of the Conception in Marlborough what belongs to the manners and tone ol Blr,,t.t)- wll,.
