[ Boston, January 18.?The Mayor re
plies.to tbe oommitteo of laborers, who
suggest extensive public works, and ex?
press willingness to take city scrip, that
such' expedients us suggested would
greatly impair the future credit of the
city, and in the end result in injury of
tho working men, instead of benefit.
The public funds cannot be,.used for
unnecessary work. This plan would in?
crease the already large class who lean
upon tho government for support, instead
of depending on thoir own exertions.
In conclusion, the Mayor said: "The
outlook does not appear to me at all
gloomy. The effects of the late finnnoial
disturbance are already passing away.
Our manufactories will soon resume
their' wonted activity, and I have no
doubt there will soon be plenty of work
for all who desire it.*'

Yesterday afternoon, beforo the Re?
publican Seuators resumed their caucus
session, Senator Sargent called upon tho
President, and mentioned to him the
faot that he hud received an anonymous
uote, in which it was stated that ou the
21st March, 1861, Caleb Cusbiug wrote
a letter to Jede reo n Davis, recommend?
ing Archibald Rootle, a clerk in the At?
torney-General's office, to Davis' favor?

Strong Southern sympathies aud being
an able scholar, was a contributor to
DeBoio'n Review, and while briefly allud?
ing to tho snbjdots which then divided
tho North and South, Cusbiug spoke of
them as the aauso of the ?ual separa?
tion of the Union. Regarding this as
an accomplished fact, the President, a
short time thereafter, applied to the
Secretary of War for the original of this
letter, which was. produced?it being
found among tho captured Coofederute
archives. Tho Prefideut, on reading
the letter, at ones concluded to with?
draw tbe nomination, and oansed a com?
munication to bo written to the Sonate
for this purpose. The President, before
ho nominated dishing, kuew that this
gentiemaa had taken tbe State rights
view of the questions which agitated the
couutry just previous to the breaking
out of tbe lato war, but that when Fort
Sumter was fired upon, Cushiug made a
patriotic speech, and offered bis services
in a military capacity to assist in putting
down tho rebellion. Others had, like
dishing, declared that the Government
had no right to coerce a State, yot
when hostilities resulted, they were ac?
tively found ou the side of tho Union;
but now that this letter to Jeffersou
Davis had come to light, stating so
broadly^his disunion views, tho Presi?
dent, notwithstanding his high appre?
ciation of Mr. dialling's legal attain?
ments, resolved to withdraw his name,
apprehensive that his opinions, as ex?
pressed in tho past, might injuriously
affect the decisions of the Supremo
Court, iu tbe evont of his confirmation
as Chief Justice. Tbe President called
an extra Cabinet meeting to-day, whioh
continued fur nearly two hours, during
which tho subject of tho Chief Justice?
ship was considered. A -diort timo be?
foro the President's Privato Secretary
started for the Capitol, a long [otter
from Mr. Cashing, through General
Butlor, was received by the President,
in whioh the writer' thanks tho Presi?
dent for his kindness and partiality in
nominating him for tbe great ofliue of
Chief Justice, aud, us if iu contradic?
tion of the numerous charges ugaiust
bim from newspaper and other sources,
ho expresses his conviction ou the pro?
priety of tho several amendments to tho
Constitution added since the late civil
war; and, iu conclusion, utks that his
nomination ho withdrawn from the Se?
nate. Tho original letter of Gushing to
Davis is in possession of tho War De?
partment. Senator Sargent has a copy
of it, which ho procured yosterday, by
virtue of his Senatorial privilege, and
which was exhibited by him to tho cau?
