Conuuissioner Pleasantoil has been for merly suspended, and Douglass appointed and in possession of the office. The immediate causes assigned in ulliciul circles for Pleasanton's removal are: the revenue was not collected with efficiency ; his reversal of rulings of his predecessors and making decisions the elluet of which needlessly lessoned the revenue ; and act ing on important matters, wherein I tout well had paramount authority, without consult ing him. The following is Pleasauton's letter refus ing to resign: TIIE.ASI'I.Y I>K['AI.T.\I_.NT, 1 Office of Co*, or I.nii:iinai. Ili:\-t:.\tE, August btil, IS7I. J To the President: In answer toyourivijiiesi, transmitted through Oeneral Porter last evening, tliat 1 should tender my resignation of the ollice of Commissioner of Internal Revenue, 1 can only reply that under ordinary circumstances nothing would give un- pleasure than to accede to any request >ou might make of this kind. But Hie cause lor making this request was stated by Ueneral Por ter to be the difl'erenci' eiisting between the Sec retary of the Treasury, Mr. Bontwell, and in> self as regards the government and nmu:i;'* nn-iit of the Internal BevCnue Bureau. @lfe Hailjj State Journal Six Dollar* I'er Year.? Three Out* Per t i.jty. \ Mr. Hont well claims powers which, under the laws of Congress governing that Burean, are vented solely In the Commissioner. The ques tion is, therefore, a purely legal one, and the pre cedents of our Government have l>een to have ragh questions, when appealed to the President, referred to the law officer of the Government for his opinion, and upon which the President would base his decision. This course was (pursued by Presidents Jackson, Tyler, Pierce, Van Buren, Fillmore, and others, and has been the uniform practice of the Government. Knowing these facts and IwHcving this to be the proper way to settle any difference of view as reganls tho law which might exist between the Secretary and the Commissioner, I addressed you a communication some time since making an appeal for your deci sion of the powers of the Commissioner under the act of July 90, l wis. This appeal, as I under stand it, is not to be entertained, but the gubject is to be treated rather as a perWmal difference be tween the Secretary-and myself. In this connection it is proper to add that the personal condnct of the Secretary has bt»on such, as to preclude the tender of my resignation until some opportunity Is granted lor vindicating my administration of the Internal Revenue Bu reau. In justice to the public interests placed under my charge and the importance to the tax-payers of a proper solution of these difficulties, I must respectfully decline to tender you my resignation, and, trusting it will not be deemed Inappropriate, I will again request that your present determina tion may be reconsidered and au investigation of the matter of difference botweon the Secretary and myself be referred to the Attorney General for his legal opinion.

In a Box. —Many of our Democratic friends are grievously disappointed, and hence considerably worried, by the an nouncement in our columns of yesterday, I that the officers of the Attacks Guard (colored,) had successfully passed the ex- I animation by the military board of ex-1 aminers. Their first hope was that the othcors charged with this duty would re fuse to give them certificates, however satisfactory the examination might be. This sweet draught having been thus rudely dashed from their lips, they have stfll an other to which they cling, as drowning men catch at straws. They now predict the company will be unable to provide its members with the regulation uniform. Should they fail to secure them, they see a prospect of getting rid of the thorn. To the grumblers we say, you need no longer hug this phantom to your bosoms ; the company is composed of respectable and worthy colored men, who are able, willing, and determined to comply with all the requirements of law. Having done this, the question of where it will go, whether in the First Virginia Regiment or not, will be determined. The "devil and Tom Walker! Haven't you accepted the "New Departure?"

Many ot them are intimately associated in our minds wltl oiiii'oftho most pleasing and touching remin iscences of domestic lift', as it was when we were children.

If we have regard to tlie peace nnd nosperity of our couutry, under whose govern liiit Hie colored imputation are entitled to equal rights and privileges with ourselves, we cannot neglect their religious instruction ; for in propor tion as they are taught the truths of Christianity, md become imbued with the spirit of the gospel, 1 hey will lie better citizens. They will become peaceable, honest, industrious, loyal. One more consideration will suffice us! It is a act m ion- to all, and truly painful to those who lavo proper feelings, that the colored people, as a rule, are very suspicions of our motives, are trongly prejudiced against our views, and have ittle or no confldence in our piety.

Hut, how must this work Is- accomplished. It hottld bo undertaken and prosecuted in the spit t of humility and love. We should not scorn the -oloreit people on account of this lowly condition, ir ridicule them for tlieir ignorance.

Theological schools for the training of colored laslors should be patronized. The colored pc-o ie will have pastors ol their own color, and it is iroper that they should be thus supplied.
