Wo had no expectation that the posses sion of tiffici and nownr bv ihp Torins would bo of long continuance but wc certainly did as liltllc expect that their en trance and their exit would both be inc'u dad within forty cicht hours. Such how ever, was tlio I'nr.l. On Tuesday the 7ih of May the Whigs resigned, as our renders know, and both houses adjourned to Friday. The Queen, according to the London Herald, was deep JV affected when Lords f!ntliMilirim nml Melbourne definitively announced to her that the Whig ministry was extinct affec ted even to tears. Her Majesty wished to eend for Lord Normnnbv. and entrust to him the formation of a new cabinet; but Lord Melbourno honestly advieod hor to call in tho Duke of Wellington, and placo the country unreservedly in his hands. The Duko waited upon Iho Queen, and odviscd her to place the formation of the new cabinet in the hands nf Kir TtnhnM Peel thinking it most proper that tho f. mi, miniate, njuiiiii uc a inumucr Ol I lie House of Commons. On Wednesday, therefor. Sir Robert won nnnninlnrl Pirat Lord of the Treasury and Chancellor of mo uxencquer receiving, or course, carte blanche for the ministerial arrangements. Thursday the cabinet was constructed as ioiiows: Lord Chancellor, Lord Lvndhursf. President of tho Council, 'Duko of Wel lington. First Lnrd of tho Treasury, and Chan cellor of tho Exchrquor, Sir Robert Peel. Foreign Secrclary, Earl of Aberdeen. Colonial Secretory. Lord Stanley. Home Secretary, Sir James Graham. These arrangements wore announced in the Morning Post of Friday. But on Thursday night the Peel ministry was alrondval an nml. Thn urinal nar. of this event are differently related bv the Wl,i- ...! Tl .i . ,. mK unu i ury pnpers ino mrmer ilicg. ing that Sir Robert, with an extent of ex action that was scarcely courteous and certainly not prudent, demanded the imme. diate dismissal of all the ladies composing her Msjosty's household; and that tho Queen indignantly rofused compliance with this demand, saying "I would rather be reduced lo the levol of a subject, than be deprived of the society of those lo whom I urn personally attached, and who have boon the friends- of my childhood." Tho Tory journals, on tho other hind, flay that the demand of Sir Robert, wis only for such a proportionate change in tho household appointment as should give evi dence to tho country that the ministers en. joyed her Majesty's confidence, and (hat parties who had oeaed to be responsible, could no longer exercise on influence upon the royal mind. The Time gives Ihe names of iho ladies whoso removal were considered by Sir Robert indispensable; namely, the Duchess of Sutherland and the Countoss of Burlington, both sisters to Lord Morpeth, Lady Charlemont, and the Marchioness of Normandy. Be this as it may, however, both parlies insisted, and Sir Robert accordingly ten dered his resignation, which was at onco accepted, and tho Queen recalled Lords Melbourne and John Russell to their posts. The 'explanations' will tell tho rest. In the meantime it is clear (hat Sir Rob ert has committed a blunder unless indeed he was satisfied that he could not sustain himself, either with Ihe present Houso of Commons or with (he result of a new elec tionwhich perhaps is the real truth of the matter. But if he actually expected and intended to remain in office, his move ment respecting the hcusehold wna prema ture.

Tho kind treatment experienced by thoso Indians who came in at tho invitation of Gen. iMncomb, has tended to restore confi donee, and will go vory far to smooth diffi culties. The success of Gen, Macomb's measures, in putting an end to the contest in Florida, during Ihe season, whero mili tary operations could not be carried on, aa it is creditable to the General himself."
