mm yffigaaa ARRIVAL OF THE GREAT WES TERN. Tlio Great Western slcnm-sliip, Capt. lloskcn, iirrived nt Now York on Thursday evening, bringing London papers down to the 31st ult.. having loft Uiistol on the 1st inst., making the passage in 15 days and 3 hours Thu Great Western made her outward passage in twelve days and ton hours, having nrrived nt King's-road, llristol, nt 5 o'clock in the morning of tho -'Oili ult. Tho intelligence she brings of tho over throw of tho Wlii Ministry, was anticipated as inevitable. The majority of 91 in favor of the turios, makes them all powerful. Thcro was much difference of opinion with regard to tho authenticity of tho China uows which was brought to Now York by tho Akbar, and which was of n later dato than had been received in London. It had, how ever, ail effect on the tea market, causing prices to fall. Tho arrival of tho overland mail from India, was tidily expected. Although there had been some rain since our last advices, the weather, on the whole, had been favorable for tho harvest. Large supplies of wheat and llour had been receiv ed and prices had declined. Thu London papers announce the death of Theodore Hook, in the 7o!h vear of his aire, lie died at his cottage in Fulham. of bilious cholera. From its commencement ho had been the editor of tho John Hull weekly newspaper. Of his many novels "Savings and Doings" is the best. Mr.J. O'Connellhas been appointed dep uty lieutenant of the county ho i oprosetils in Parliament. Daniel O'Counell announced it the Repeal Association, a contribution of .100 from New York, making .t'GoO which lie bus received from America. A meeting of the Colonial Society was lield on the fiOth, to lakn into consideration the case of iMcLeoJ. The Mail of Muunt cashel presided, and resolutions were passed urging the Queen to direct tho energies of tho Kingdom to vindicate "thisgioat nation al wrong." Tin: Gkai.v Chop; The accounts of the harvest are highly etiei'tir.iging from all paits of the kii gduni. In Wales it is saiil to be the general opinion of the farmers that they have not had so good crops of wheal and barley for the last 12 years. Thu general belief that thu crops are not so much dama ged as was supposed, it is thuuuhl will cause tho duty on foreign wheat will go no lower, though speculators are still sanguine in their expectations. At London on the -'(lib, pii ces had not declined, though the market w.is dull at former rate. The average prices for the week ending on 20lh was 80s. lor wheat -J Is. lOJ.for bailey, and ;is. 7il. for rye. Prices at iho latest dates wero linminnlh from Gs to Si. per quarter lower. Large quantities of foreign wheat had arrived, amounting in all to about (124,000 bushels, v i.h above 6,000 barrels Hour. The quality of new wheat which had come in was inferi or. Most grains had a downwind tendency. Tilt: CASE OF McLEOI). House of Common", Aug.

His object in pultiti' these questions was a a far us pontile to promote pence ; and to obuin litat cnJ he would siteest that before they came to any conclusion honorable mem tiers should understand the question of our relation with the United States. The question, or rather ques tions, ho was about to put were the in number, mid related entirely to ihe detention of Mr. alel-eod.

Sin : Alter the most calm and careful enn siiluration, and view itio; the subject in all the aspects in which it presents itself to my mind, I have r.oino to the conclusion that I ought no longer to remain a member of your Cabinet. 1 theiol'iiro resign the office of Secretary of the Treasury, and beg you to accept this as my let ter of resignation. 7 ei avoid misunderstanding, 1 distinctly de clare that I do not consider a dillerenee of opi nion as to the character of a Nattonal llauk a sufficient reason for dissolving tlie" tics which have existed between us. Though I look upon that ineasuto as one of vast importance to the prosperity of the country, and though I should have deeply depleted your inability or unwilling, ness to accord it to tlie wishes of the people and the States, so tincipuvoc ily expressed through their representatives', still, upon this and this alone, unconnected with other controlling eir cuuistance.,! should not have felt bound to resign t tic place which I hold in your administration. Hut tlui.so controlling circumstances do exist, and I will, in my own justification, place tlieui in connexion butorc you. If i but ju.t to you to say that Iho bill which first passed the two Houses of Congress, and which .va relumed with your objections on the Kith of August, did never, in its piogrocs mi far as I know or believe, leceive at any time cither your express or implied assent. So far as that bill was known to me, i r as I was consulted upon it, 1 endeavoied tobringits provisions as nearly as possible in accordance with what I understood lo be your views, and rather hijict than (j.'iriW your approval. I know the extent lo u Inch you were committed on the question. I know the pertinacity with which you adhered to your expressed opinions, and 1 (headed from the first the most disastrous consequences, when thu project of compromise which I pre sented at an early day was rejected. It is equally a matlerof justice to you and to mvself to say that the bill which I icportcd to the two llnusos of Congiess at the commence nieut of the so.-sion. in obedience to their call, was modified so asto meet your approbation. toumay nor, n is true, nave lean tlie lull throughout, and examined every part of it : but the lliih fundamental article, which became the contested epictiou of principle, was freely elis- e'.usseu netween ti', aim a was uniierstond and unequivocally sanctioned by yourself.

In this condition nf things, though I irroatlv regretted your veto on the bill as it pased the two iimises in v.oiigre-s, aim tiinugii i foresaw thu excitement and agitation which it would produce among the people, yet, considering iho changes which the bill had undergone in it. passage, and in variance from the one vou h id agreed to sanction, 1 could not find in tint act enough to disturb the confidential lelatioti wlutli existed tietween us. was disposed to attribute this act.tiauglit with mischief as it was, to puro and honorable motives, and to a con srietitious conviction nil your part that the bill, in some of its provi-ioiis, conflicted with the Constitution. lint that opinion of your course on the bill which has just been lottirnedto Con gress wttii your second veto, I dri not and cannot entertain. Iterur to what has passed between us with respect to il, and you will at ouco per cievu that such opinion is impossible.' On the morning of the Kith of August, I call- cd at your chamber, and found you preparing (lie nrsi vein nieer-age, iu uc despatched lo tliu Senate.

He observed that, though tin- veto would create a great sensation in Congress, yet he thought the mind nf our fr.ends better prepaid! for it than they were some days ago, and lie hoped it would be calmly leceiwd, especially as it did not shut out all hope ot a bank. To tins you lepited that you really thought theio ought to be no dilli. culty about it ; that you had siillicienlly uido-a. ted, in your veto nics-ago, what kind of a bank you would approve, and lhat congress might, il they saw tit, ji.iss such a one in three days. 7'im ISth being the dav fur our regular Cab- inel meeting, wo. assembled, all except .Messrs.

That you had your doubts about the propriety of conversing with them yuinsulf, and thought it more proper lhat you should commune with them through your coiistilulional iidvier.. You expressed a wish that tlie whole subject should be postponed till the next session (d Congress. You spoke of the delay in the senate oi tne consideration ol your veto message, and expressed anxiety as to the tone and temper which the debate would assume.

It failed, as I have rca-ou to believe, because you would give no assurance that the delay was not sought as a means and occasion for hostile movements. During this season of deep feeling and ear nest exertion upon our part, while we were zealously devoting our talents and influence, to sti-taiu you, the very secrets of our Cabinet councils made their appearance in an infamous paper printed iu a neighboring city, the columns of which were daily charged with (lattery of yourself and loul abuo of your Cabinet. All this I boro ; for I felt thai my services, so long as they could avail, were due to tlie nation to that great and magnanimous people whoso suf Ir.tges elevated your predecessor to tho station winch you now fill, and who.e united voices approved his act when he summoned us around him, to he his counsellors ; and i felt that what was due to his memory, to the injunctions which ho lolt us iu hi.) last 'dying words, and to thu people, whose servants we were, had not all been performed, until every means was tried, and every hope had failed, of carrying out the true principles upon which tho tiiightv move inent was limn Jed that elevated him anil you to power.

The lull which I reported lo Congress with your appro, bation, at the commencement of the session, had the clatue relating in agencies, and the nowcr to deal iu exchanges, as strongly deve loped as tho one you havo now rejected, and equally without the assent of tho States. Vou referred specially and with approbation to that clause, many days after, in a conversation held in tho Department of State. Vou sanctioned it in this parliciTlar bill as detailed above. And no doubt was thrown out on tho subject by you, in my hearing, or within my knowledge, until the letter of .Mr. Ilotls came to your hands. Soon after the reading of that letter, you throw out strong intimations that you would veto tho bill it it were not postponed. That letter 1 did and do most unequivocally condemn, hut it did not alloc! the constitutionality of tho bill, or justify jou iu rejecting it on that ground ; it could alfect only the expediency of your action ; and, whatever you may now believe as to the scruples existing in your mind, in this and in a kindred source there is strong reason to believe they havo their origin. If 1 bo right in this, and I doubt not I am, hero Is a great public measure demanded by the country, pasted upon and approved by the re presentatives of the states and the people, re jected by you as President, un grounds having no origin in conscience, and no reference to the public good. The rejection of this measure, ton, continues the purse with the Bword in tho hands of tho Executive, from which wo strove to wrest it, in tho contest which elevated your predecessor and you to power. I cannot con cur in this your course of policy. In or out of office, my opinions remain unchanged. I can not abandon the principles for which, during all my political career, 1 have struggled : especial ly I cannot be one of the instruments by which the Executive) wields those combined, accumu lated, and dangerous powers. These, sir, aro the reasons for the important stop which I have felt it my duty to take, and I submit them as its justification. I am, verv respectfully, yours, T. EW1NG. To tho I'nnsiDn.NT. The following letter from Mr. "iVebstcr, con tains his reasons for not resigning ins place in the cabinet : Washington, Sept. 11, 1911. My Dear Sir, I thank you for your kind and fiiendly letter. Vou will have learned that Messrs. Ewing, Hell, lladger, and Chittenden, have resigned their respective office?. Probably Mr Granger may feel bound to follow the example, ,.7'lns oc currence can hardiy cause you the same degree of regret w hich it has occasioned to me ; as they aro not only my friends, but persons with whom I havo had, for some tune, a daily official inter course. 1 could not partake in this movement. It is supposed to bo justified, I presume, by the dtllerences which have arisen between the "Pre sident and Congress, upon tho moans of estab lishing a proper Fiscal Agency, and restoring a sound state of the currency ; and collateral mat ters, growingoutofthoscdifl'eicnccs. I regret those differences as deeply as any man ; but I have not been able to see in what manner the resignation of the Cabinet was likely cither to remove or mitigate the evils produced by them. On the coatrary, my only reliance fur a remedy for those evils has been, and is, on the union, conciliation, and perseverance of the whole Whig party ; and I by no moans despair of see ing yet accomplished, by these means, all that wo desire. It may render us more patient under disappointment in regard to one measure, to recollect, as is justly stated by the President in his last message, how great a number of im portant measures lias boon already successfully carried through. 1 hardly know when such a mass of business has been despatched in a single session ol Congress. 1 lie annual winter session is now near at hand ; the same Congress is again soon to as semble; and feeling as deeply as I ever did, tlio indispensable necessity of some suitable provision for the keeping ot the public money, for aid to the operation of the treasury, and to the high public interests of" currency' and ex change, I am not in haste to believe that the parly which his now the predominance will not, in all these respects, yet lulfil the expectations of the country. If it shall not, then our condi- tiou is. forlorn indeed. Hut for one, I will not give up the hope. My particular connexion with the administra tion, however, is in another department. I thinl; very humbly none can think more humbly of tne value ot me services winch I am able to render to the public m that post. Hut as there is, to far as I kno-v, on all subjects alt'ecting our foreign relations, a concurrence of opinion between the President and myself, and as there is nothing to distt.rb the harmony of our inter course, 1 have not felt it consistent with the duly winch I owe the country, to run tho ri by any sudden or abrupt proceeding, of embar rassing the Executive, iu regard to subjects and questions now immediately pending, and which intimately all'oct the preservation of the peace oi uie country. 1 am, dear sir, with constant regard, Vottrs, eXVc.
