[Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.) QCTBBXSTIXO COnBXSPOirDEHCB. The correspondence between the State Depart ment arid Mr. Motley, relative to the letter's resig nation of the Austrian mission, called for some trine ago at Mr. Sumner’s instance, was sent In this afternoon. It was not formally laid before the Senate, bat the following is a (correct sum mary of the contents. There are but two letters, one trom Mr. Seward and one from Mr. Motley, though Mr. Seward's covers one from a person dengnaled as “an American gentleman travelling lo Europe.” It appears that this anonymous in dividual sent a letter to Mr. Seward charging gen erally that most of onr Ministers and Chief Con sals in Europe are political opponenU of the AdmtniaLiatlon; that many of them are given (o public denunciations of the President and Secretary of Stale. Tho writer imperially men tions Messrs. Marsh and Motley, saying that the latter had spoken of Mr. Seward as a degraded dd man, and had expressed a decided prefer™*** for EcclUhrn-i*—*— .* awopy ot this precious document Mr. Seward sends to Ur. Motley, and nls own letter Is only long enough to ask the Min ister, In diplomatic phrase, what be has to say abont these charges. Mr. Motley's reply Is of some length. Be begins by expressing his as tonishment that snch a letter should be sent btm by the Department, and says his first thought was to content himself with a flat denial ol the charges made by Mr. Seward's informer. Be concludes, however, to make a more detailed answer. Be does not stoop to deny the charges that he had spoken disrespectfully of the Secretary or Presi dent. Bo meets the charge relative to his exces sive (admiration of English laws and customs by saying it cannot be believed by any one who knows bim or has evcrreadclthcr bis historical or philosophical writings. The general charge that be u> opposed to the President's policy brings from blm the statement that be baa spoken of both the President and Congress un der his own roof and among bis friends, and was not aware IhatadllEen living abroad, even in official capacity, was debarred from bolding and expressing views of bis own regarding tbe great questions presented by the ovdttbrowoflhetebelllon.

There Is no conflict of law in the premises, the act of Congress? provid ing (or the taxation of a business not being incon- sisunt with the right of a State to tax and regu late each business, earned on within Ita limits .

GABnrxzaa* Btzrrrao.—A targe number cf the gardenersoTCbleago assembled yesterday after noon in the office cf the Atrlrfe Ibrmer, corner of Wells and Lekestrcets, for the pnrpose of or ganising a aodety of gardeners. Independent of alt Agricultural aud Uordcaltoral Societies. The meeting wts organised by the choice of Ur. ; Daniel Worthington is Chairman, and Ur. Edgar banders as secretary. The President stated the objects of the meeting in a few remarks. Mr. R. Kontx said that the gardecers once bad an organization, bat as no meetings or election* bad been held for orcr font years, be thought li would be the beat plan to organize entirely anew, and independent of all other Agricultural and Horticultural Societies. Mr. D. Worthlngtcr, President, Ctvored the union of the gardeners with the Cook County Horticul tural Soarty. Mr. S. Muir also favored the plan of the Presi dent, and thought that the action of the garden . ere, taken a. lew weeks ago, should bo recon sidered. Mr. Nelson favored the formation of a separate society of tbe gardeners of Chicago, and thought that (be Interests of all would be better advanced If they did not unite with any Agricultural or Hor ticultural fotlrty. Mr. C. M.Ross said that there was no need of united action In case the gardeners wanted to join toy society, as they were, individually, at liberty so to act. Mr. A. H. Dalton spoke at length reviewing the old organization o! gardeners, the causes war It ceased to exist, atd why a new one was wanted. He favored the junction of the Gardeners’with the Cook County Agricultural a*id Horticultural borlety. He said the objects of the Cook County Society ware not Individual, but (bey aimed to spread knowledge in all the branches of agricul ture and horticulture. The larger that Society Incomes tbe more good will U be sole to effect. As some objected to the name of tho county or ganlxiUon, no said the word “Agriculture" was added, so as to enable the Society to procure on appropriation of one hundred uolUrs per annum trom toe Stale. Thu sum was onual to Ofty mem bers, and It was evldvut that It was a matter of some importance. That Society was now talrly organised, and fast rising to manhood. If tho gardeners organise a separate Association, as they now propose, they will be antnrntrstlo to tbe county Society, and neither would accomplish as much work as they would if milted In one Society. Mr It. A. Meats moved that the name of the Association be the Chicago Horticultural Society. Carried. Mr. Moars moved that a committee of seven be appoint'd to otaft a constitution and by laws tor the Hocwtj, and report at the host meeting. Carried. The billowing gentlemen were chosen as said committee: Messrs. Kduar Handers, John Hlalr, V. Hutrer, Hauuol Muir, It. Emits, 11, A. Meats, \f. Kastman.
