Fornsy, Clerk of the United States Senate, has made ap a collection in two quarto volumes of -autograph .letters from eminent public men, chiefly Senators, who have been in correspondence with the Secretary of the Senate, and presented it to the Sanitary Fair lately ia , progress at Cincinnati. Such a collection, of coarse, is one of great interest; especially to curiosi ty hunters; and tbe following glance at the character of tbe letters, by tbe Washings ton correspondent of the Cincinnati Gazette will be found very readable; lo a letter from Mr. Buchannan, dated January 1850, the band writing . is cramped and tremulous, - Tbe signature begins with a sprawling J. and tbe B. is like tbe worst specimens of a school boy's uiECnii Deginntog. . - i . ..; ?., In singular contrast ate tbe few notes tbe volumes containing from Daniel Web ster. The writing is coarse and irregular, but with a great deal sf masculine vigor, and quite legible. A similar vigor seems to mark tbe irreg ular, but easily read cotes of Thomas II. Benton. : .r;1- Judab P. Benjamin . contributes a letter or two full of facile flourishes, like tba man. J. M. Mason writes a small scrawling band, rather difficult to read. : . Near is the cramped, illegible bad ef Sa'mon P.Chase. Charles Sumner's notes evidently eome from a man who once wrote well; but tbougb rather neat, tbey suggest tbe mark ing pot and brush, rather (ban a goose quill. Horatio Seymour indulges in flourishes. Tbe body of bis letter is smoothly and roundly written very mucb as bia speech es are delivered. Near bis letter are ooe or two in the beart but careless cblrograpby of "11. Clay," as tbe Sage of Ashland always signed bimself. Next comes tbe rather good-looking, but difficult band of R. M. T. Hunter. And oext "Gov." George E Pugh an nounces, with savage earnestness, tbat the newspaper clerk! has been sending him tbe New York Herald, and tbat be wants it forthwith stopped, aa be "won't have it at aoy price or without price." .
