glff.ifi'fl at glilnMjinotou. Family Jaus. TIio correspondent ol the Courier mid Enquirer gives us tin; fol lowing morcol from Wnshinglon : 'John Forsyth. Iho Secrclnry of State, sent in yestorduy Ins resignation, in a nolo addressed with 1 tie uncourlcous pupcr. orip linn, ",V ran Ihtrcn, President of the United Sidles." A copy of litis, together Willi tin address from Mr. Forsyth, to ilic citizens of (Joogia, was sent to the Globe, ninl would have appeared thisninrtiiiig hnd it not been suppressed lite evening before by 'consent of parties. Whnt concessions were made by Van Cnron (o Forsyth, or how the, Rlorm was quieted, 1 rttn unabln to nay ; bul the facie ns I relate tlieni to you are sub. stanlially correct. Tlinl Mr. Van D'iren was alarmed nl t ho idea of n rupture of his Cabincl bo early in Ihe outset of his po litical career, I have no doubt, and that lie is anxions to get rid ol Forsyth I have, just A8 little doubt. Some say that Mr. Van Huron offered the Secretary a Mission to Austria, and licticc that his pride was deep ly wounded at the idea of "being offered a mission to a third rate Court!" What will tlio Imperial House of Austria say, could he hear of such a speech from an American Secretary of Stale? This man is igno rant even of the relative rank of the Courts of Europe. Such was the alarm lest this 'thing should leak out, that all the persons in tlio Globe office were specially informed 'that no mention was to be made of what diad occurred and yet the thing has leaked out and I pledge my faith to you, nay proof if necessary, of its correctness. Inauguration Day and Week. The concourse of persons in I his city from e very point of the compass, on the day of the late Inauguration of President of "the Uni ted States, was largo beyond example. No enumeration could of course be made of strangers arriving here by so many dif ferent paths. Some idea may be formed of the throng at '.he hotels from Ihe single fact, that at one barber's shop in the city the sum of three hundred dollars was ta ken for shaving, &c. within the Inaugura tion week; to which wc may add Ihe fjet that, more than once in the week, the earn, which run twice a day from this place to Baltimore, carried five or six hundred pas ecngcrs at n lime. The number of visi ters far exceeded the means of accommo dation afforded by our public houses, and, from want of knowing where temporary lodging might bo had, we apprehend that many of Ihe strangers suffered a good deal of inconvenience, after nrriving here, until Hicy trot away again. Wc arc forcibly re minded of nil this by the following lively description of the scone, extracted from an account of "the Inauguration." which wc find in the Portsmouth (Va.) Times, one of the Editors of which journal was, it ap- pcatf. among the sufferers: "The concourse of strangers in the city was immense, ror many days previous the hotels nnd boarding houses had licnn excessively crowded; many were jlaily turned off. houseless and homeless, and the number of the rejected continued to in crease until the dav itself, when it was cvi. dent that there were thousands of good folks without any fixed tarrying place was intcrcslinu towards nightfall to wit noss the gathering anxiety in many a dc cent man's countenance as ho hurried 01 with the crowd gazing on the descending eun, and reflecting on ihe long, long, hor rible, night, to whose icy embraces he was in all probability, to be consigned a help less victim. Money scorned to be useless 'for once. It could, indeed, procure for the possessor i lie finest and most luxurious dishes, for, to her credit be it spoken, more attractive fare never was set in such noun dance before a crowd than was exhibited in Washington in this instance. The pal ate could bo gloriously gratified but there was no rest tor the weary limb?. Reds! beds! beds! was the general cry. Some eougbt them in dinner halls, some in hag gage rooms, others in lumber houses, and a party wc could name that coii-idetod them selves not the least lucky of their kind, in revolutionizing a barber's hall, and t-ubht i tuting in the place of the paraphernalia of the establishment the vilest of sleeping apparatus." Woodbury is apt to make mich very gross i blunders in very small mailers of finance, what kind of management must he bring to ihe millions of Ihe Treasury What sort ol nriihnielie has ho introduced into ihe Deparltni'i'l ? In making out ono of his per.-otml (nils', ho overcharged f'uiir dol lar when the whole sum at isuo was hut fourteen! I a such n financier fit to be trusted with Ihe Treasury of tlio United States? We understand that Mr. Van Huron is desirous to bo relieved ol Mr. Woodbury. Tliu Secretary is personally unpopular we may say odious among men of all par lies, lie is a vain, pompous, sellih indi vidual cunning and overreaching ono of I huso mon whom even "Treachery cannot trust." lie was placed in his prctctit office at n time and under circumstances which had made it any thing but nn office of hon or and when no gentleman could have been found to ncccpl it. His whole course has hron such as might have been antici pated from a man ready to disgrace him self by the acceptance of such a coinmis sion ai such a period and the presentation of his overcharged Bn.r, would form a vciy anoronrialc finale to his public career. It would ho a blazo-of-florv termination, of which wc hope he will be sufficiently con siedatc to avail himself without delay. CORRESPONDENCE BUTwnr.N n. m. whitnev ano hie bank o llUBUNOTON.

SECRETARY WOODBURY. Mr. Secretary Woodbury has become cvcr-illustrious. His picture should he put into the print nhnn. A I rail of char nctcr was recently developed in his con nection with the Investigating Committee f Congress, that is sufficient lo damn any public officer to a most unenviable fame. Mr. Woodbury, as Scereiary of the Treasury, is in Ihe receipt of all "the cmoln incuts which the laws atincli lo an office tiiat was once considered highly rc-pecta ble and responsible. Hut the General has of late years assumed all Ihe responsibility and tho character of jls laic incumbents has absorbed all its respectability. While in this situation as a public officer, Mr. Woodbury was summoned to attend the Investigating Committee, to give in formation connected with the Department over which ho presides. On concluding Ins labors before tho Committee. Mn Woonuunv sent in a Hill to this Com- SUTTEE KOR ST.VKN DAVS ATTKNDANCK AS A WITNESS AT TWO DOM.AIIS A DAY. This B creditable conduct in a Cabinet officer! A man who receives a competent salary fo-devoting nil his time to public duties, so nda in a bill to a Congressional Commit tee, for witness fees in n case connected with his own especial department! How would some of Mr. Woodbury's predeces Hors havo rrgarded such petty rapacity! Rut tho best of tho story is lo come. The Committee examined the bill, and, though composed of a majority of tho friends of the Crown, refused lo allow it. Thcv found that instead of allcndin'' seven days, Mr. Woodbury had attended hut five and that instead ol ciinrging lourieen dollars ho should charge but ten. They cut down Ihe bill of I ho illustrious Recre tary accordingly, on the ground of an over charnc. Ho had charged tho Statu too vitich, and the Committo determined to nl Jow him only that to which ho was by his ow n ohnwintr entitled. This litllo fact i important not merely in illustrating I ho small selfishness of a New Hampshire politician, hut in another A quolly interesting point of view.

A discovery has been made in chimney bnildinir. which is likely to put a stop to tho building these lofty stalks is, that the innrnnsnd hoirrht rrives an amazingly in- crcscid draught. But it was found that a chimney of the ordinary height, or at most sixty or sevotv feet, which is so constructed ns lo havo the inside of the flue nnrrnwnst at the bottom, and gradually widening as it ascends, has the effect of increasing the draught, and burning tho smoke in at much greater degree than a tall flue on the old principle.

From Ilic Albany Daily Advertiser SlIOCIC IN THE Mo.NF.V MahKET. Ill Saturday's paper wc alluded to tho intelli gence from New Orleans of mercantile disasters to a very heavy amount. When this news reached New York, it created much sensation in the Money Market, since it was understood that the Messrs. .To.-eimis of Wall street, Brokers, were involved to the amount of a million and a quarter Stocks fell from fivo to ten per cent, and much "sympathy" was expressed for Iho opulent and enterprising firm, who by tin "untoward event" have been compelled to d iheir navments. I ho shock 111 the Money Market is the greater since tho Jo scphs were supposed to ho almost beyond sibilitv of insolvency. 1 ho turn arc wnitinr farther advices from Now Orlean and employing the interval in an investiga tion of Iheir resources, before they decide whether Iheir suspensions of payment shall bo temporary or final.

The Jourual of Commerce says: "The party walls of the block had been run up first, and the fronts nltcrwards. II was not very strange, therefore, that the fronts should foil, though many Iron is put up this very imperfect nnd dangerous manner do not full." Tho iN. is Transcript soys, The mortar with which the bricks were nominally comcntcd, appears lo be very in iioccnt of lime, nnd to this, in conjunction ith the coming out ot the Irost, the fnll must bo ascribed." At one o'clock, on Tuesday morning, in thu sama city, one half of a new building rcconlly erected by the IWcs-srs Josephs, at the corner ol Wall and Hanover streets for a Bank, fell lo the ground with so trc mendous a crash that it could be heard nearly half a mile off. Tho Journai Commerce says, preparations arc malting pull down the remainder, 1 he building must go up new from I lie toundaliotis. It was not finished within, although the alls wore up and the roof on. The plan was, to make it incombustible s and accor dingly the floors were made of stone, res- on arches. Those arches, particular. ly those sustaining the second floor, np pear to have been loo tint, so that the pressure, instead ol being chietlv perpendi cular, was much of it horizontal ; and the exterior wall being insufficient to sustain , gradually pressed out, and in spite of the certificate of experienced builders that all was safe nnd well, finally gave way, and the greater part of the building luinb bled into ruins. Many thousands of spec tators have been attracted to the spot to sec tho wreck. The loss of property must amount to g20,000 or S30.000. It is re markable, says tho Journal, that three buildings in this city, should have fallon within the space of 24 hours. And still more remarkable that many others do not keep them company. The New Orleans correspondent of tho Ccurier describes the following strange duel. Wc commisscratc the fate of the poor horse. Yesterday, a duel was fought in this city between Captain Shamburg and Mr, Cuvil her. J he quarrel originated in a ball room, some weeks since, bet worn the former and brother of the latter. I hey passed on tho Levee next day: Cnvillicr accosted Shamburg in a manner ho believed to be insulting. Some hostile motion being mu tually made by the parties, Shamburg drew a sword cane, and run it in the arm of Cn villicr : whereupon the latter discharged iwo pistols at the former, without effect. Here the matter rested lor some days, save that Shamburg underwent a kind of trial, and was discharged. The brother of the wouuded Cuvilhertook up the quarrel, nnu challenged Shamburg. and Ihe meeting took place yesterday, with broadswords, on horsebaek. They paraded at tho proper hour, on fine looking geldings, armed witli swords -took their positions, and awaited like knights of (dd, the word to be given for combat. The re-ult was, that after some close cutting and thrusting, Sham burg had his hat cleft in twain, nnd his horse killed under him; nnd Cnvillicr had a division made of his clothing across Ins wholo front, leaving it is said a slight flesh wound; and bore the afl'iir terminated.-- While the high mcltlo of sniithcrn blood ccps up, I do noi sec how duelling is to bo prevented. The duel wos nt a public nlace. and from the mode of lighting. argo number of perrons were drawn to I lie spot lo witness tho combat. To-day is bundny,nnd ns usual, tho place is full of military parade; nnd, by a strange arrangement, this day, the 2Glh, is set apart for the military honors duo to the 22d. which came past on Wednesday lad, nnu wns then celebrated by splendid balls. I o diy, the military intend to honor it by par ade and firing. Pursuant lo this arraugo- nient, 20 rounds of cannon were fired nt the "Place d'.Jrms," this morning nt dav light and tho military corps all in lively ac tivity. Tho nmorican says, the progress uP Broadway was trumphal. Every window, every pile of building materials along tho street, was alive with human beings cheer ing, as the carriage passed them, tho -senator, Ihe Orator, the Pntriol.

"That's what wc want," wns a cry loudly uttered and repea ted. "And that you shall have," said Mr W. without non-committal or evasion,"' At the close of the speech it was an nonnccd that Governor's Room in the City Hall had been put at the disposition of Mr W, and lhat ho would accordingly receive his friends there ycstctday between 12 and 2 o'clock. The evening papers say lhat the hall during that lime was constantly crowded. The address of Dr. Ciianmnr, nt the Temperance meeting in the Odcnn last evening, was excellent. His rich and powerful mind was exercised to great ad vantage in support of the noble cause of Temperance. After depicting the great evils of Intemperance, nnd dwelling long upon Us greatest evil, the destruction ot the reasoning faculties, the extinction of the intellectual endowments of mankind, he look tho ground, t lint it was Ihe duty of the more virtuous nnd pro-perous classes of the community, to do every thing in their power, by their example, their exer tions, and their wealth, to produce reform' nmongst t he vicious mid ignorant, to en. lighten them, to injnglc with them, to rnie them to n seine of self.respcct, lo relievo them from too heavy a burden of degrn. ding nnd continued labor, inconsistent with any mentnl cultivation, and above all lo endeavor to sow in their hearts the seeds of morality and religion. Sal. Register. The New York Times, a most devoted parly paper attributes the scarcity of mon ey to the contractions of the U. S. Bank. Well, if true who caused this contraction bul the insane ohJ Gen. himself f f Money was plenty at six per cent, till he resolved to kill Ihe monster. Where is ihe belter currency he promis' d us? In place of bd!a of Ihe U S Bank which pns;-rd ai par all over the Union, millions on millions of Jaksoiv Bank limes have been created, and they miscrnbie tra.-h, every where at a discount. Never wos a nation mure imposed upon limn ours. A set of factious politicians wi it limit honesty, without talent, without any 1,-nowledgo of the financial afl'iirs of the country, nro causing a wide spread ruin, by their absurd policy. Had we a national Bank now, it would be n blor-sing to tho people. The day is pot far distant when this will be universally acknowledged. Alb D. Adv. A Walkinc: Sun.ut Stick. Two woik. men having quarrelled in a sugar-refiners' nt Valenciennes, one of them threw his comrade into a copper of thick molasses. The latter scrambled out, covered from head to foot with the sugary stuff, and, an. gry at his adversary, ru-hed into Ihe streets jnt as he was, to make his way lo Iho King's I'rocurcur to obtain legal redress. -It was freezing very hard nt tho lime, and tho sugar became so firm that when he ar rived at thu house of the magistrate lie looked like a substantial stick of barley su gar. ll:s arms ,verc glued lo his side, and he was compelled to m-k n bystander to ring tho bell for him. This curious cxhibi. tion attracted crowds of spectators, nnd ex cited much merriment.
