There are " unwritten chapter*," as the Conttt tut ion says, in the history ot the formation of ths present Cabinet, their various nominations, the measures by which, and the reasons for which they are made, and various other matters, which from time to time, I shall, as1 1 have opportunity and information, lay before your readers. One of these unwritten chapters relates to the formation ot the Cabinet, whereupon I will throw some little light. Many peraona have supposed that thia curious and intricate piece of joiner work waa not at all framed previous to the arrival of the President at Washington. Others have aaid that the President had at first intended to invite Mr. Calhoun to remain in his Cabinet, but waa induc ed, to change his mind, as the price on which the refractory clique in the Senate insisted, in order to insure the pasaage of the Annexation Resolu tions. Others again have said that Mr. Silaa Wright, of New York, was invited by Mr. Polk to take the first post in the Cabinet, and that he refused. 1 have also heard peraons make ths hitter statement, who must undoubtedly have known better, but probably did go to magnify the importance and consideration of the Benton Van-Buren-Wright clique. None ?1 any of theae suppositious statements is true. Mr. Polk had decided upon the formation of his Cabinet previous to hia crossing the mountains. He muat, therefore, have either kept hi9 determina tions aecret from hiB friends who accompanied him across the mountains, or elae they wilfully deceived other peraona, by assuring them of what was not the case; such, for instance, aa Mr. Heisa stating that Mr. Calhoun was to be retained. I have it up on very good authority, that the following waa the original constitution of the cabinet, aa Mr. Polk had decided previoua te leaving Tennessee i Becretary of State?Mr. Buchonan. Secretary of the Treasury?Mr. Fiagf, of N. Y. Secretary ot the Navy?Mr. Bancroft. Secretary of War?Mr. Stevcnion, of Va. Attorney General?aar. Walker. Postmaster General?Cave Johnson. The Secretaryship of State, your readera may rest assured, upon the most indubitable authority, never waa offered to Mr. Silaa Wright, malgre all the protestations of the Morning Neu>t and others of that clique to the contrary notwithstanding. All this arrangement, however, was apoiled by the de termination of Senator Walker to go into no place in any cabinet below the station of Secretary of the Treasury; and such representations were made, and a? many reminiscences brought to mind, before James K. Polk, that he could not think of doing without Mr. Walker in his cabinet. Aa, therefore, the redoubtable Miasissippian had determined to have nothing less than the Treasury, why Mr. Polk resolved to give it to him. This, however, involved the re-construction of the whole cabinet Mr. Buchanan waa then resolved upon for Secre tary of State, and Mr. Walker for Secretary of the Treasury, and Mr. Bancroft for Secretary of the Navy. Mr. Stevenson would not accept of the War Department. It was tendered to Mr. Butler, of New York. He declined it, and Mr. Polk ten dered it to ex Governor Marcy, who, immediately upon receiving the proffer accepted it, and posted off to Washington in propria pertona. In the mean time Mr. Butler had written to the head quarters of the clique, and the wily fox of Linden wold, aliat Kinderhook, had advised him to accept by all manner of means. He immediately revoked his declination of the office, but was too late; Marcy had accepted, and the game waa blocked. Thus far Virginia had no representative in the cabi net, and Mr. Stevenson's claims had been urged for the first post, which had been given to theS e nator from Pennsylvania. In order, therefore, to give Virginia a representative, Mr. Maaon waa called in, and after some solicitation, he agreed to take the Attorney Generalship, and thua the cabi net waa formed. While the cabinet was under consideration, the clairna of Colonel Butler, of Ky, and ex Governor, now Senator Faitfield, (about whom by the way, 1 have one of thoae un written chapters to relate,) were seriously thought of for posts in the administration; but New York and Virginia could not be left out of consideration in the apportionment, and therefore these two gen tlemen, with some o'.hers, 'bide their time. I have thus given a concise statement of thia un written chapter, which completely demoliahes the inferences which have been drawn from the state ments, mat first Silaa Wright was offered the State Department, nnd then Butler the War Wright never waa offered ihe State Department. Butler was offered the War, declined, and then withdrew hia declination, which withdrawal waa too late; and the promptness oi Mr. Polk's action in offering that department to another New Yorker, ahowa that he bad no great deaire to have one of the Benton-Van Buren-Wright clique in hia cabi net; else would he have used, some means to in duce Mr. Butler to come in, instead of immedi ately offering the post to Marcy, an old hunker to be sure, but an anti-Van Bnren one. Among the published appointments the other day, I notice that of Col. J. F. H. Ckiborne, editor of ttie New Or leant Jeffertonian Republican, and late M. C. from Mississippi, as live oak afent for Lou isiana. The title of thia office gives no concep tion of its importance, o: ot the magnitude of duties. There are v^t tracts of public lands "in the South West, w'nich are covered with very valuable timber of ?.Vi descriptions. Most of the laud is at present swamp, and if it is ever to be aisposru 01, ,t is Highly important that the timber should be preserved. If the timber be removed, the lan'i becomes valueless. Now there are num bers 01 unprincipled men, who go upon these tracts of public land, cut down all the most valuable of trie timber, form it into rafts, and when the floods come, float it off and dispose of it, thus despoiling the lands and rendering them worthless, and in fact defrauding the Treasury of Aileghania. Col. Claiborne's duties, I understand, comprehend and include the supervision of all these tracts, and the preservation of the timber from the attacks of these depredators. He is well qualified for his post, and it is to be hoped that his extensive knowledge of the country will enable him to save for the pub lic the value of this land and the timber. Both he and Judge Bryce, the eloquent and aristocratical (in appearance) Louisiaman, the champion of the young democracy, who was prevented from dis playing his oratorical powers before the New York democracy by severe sickness, have left this city for their own sunny clime, both being heartily tired of thefwind and dust,|which we have so plentifully experienced in this metropolis. A the publication of the list of Senators who have received the "constructive" travelling money, which I forwarded to you a few days ago, with my remarks upon the fact of Mr. Dallas haviag award ed it, has excited some stir. I send herewith a copy of the section of the law, under which Mr. Dallas ordered this money, which certain of tho Senators have refused to receive. The law was approved on the 22d January, 1818. The section is as follows:? Be ft enacted, That at every ten ion ?t Congress, an every meeting of the Senate in the recess of Congress after the 3rd of March, in the year 1817, each Seorator shall bo entitled ti receive eight dollar* for every day he has attended or ihall attend the Senate, and shall also be allowed eight dollar* far every twenty miles, of sstim* ted distance by the most usual road from his pisce of re sidence to the seat ot Congress, st the commencement and end of erery such session snd meeting; sod thst s11 tnm* for travel si ready performed to he due snd psysble st the time of passing ibis act; snd in esse sny member of the Sjnstc has been, is, or shsll be, detslnen by sickness on his tourney to or from such session or meeting, or after his srrivsl, hai been, is, or shall be nnable to attend the Senate, he shall be entitled to the ssme dsily allowance; and the President of the Senate pro tempore, when the Vice President has been, or shall be, absent, or when his oftico shsll be vacant, shall, dnring the period at his ser vices, receive, in sddilion to his compensstion as s mem ber of the Senate, eight dollars for every day he hss at tended or sball attend the Senate. Provided always, thst no Seustor shsll be sllowsd s sum exceeding the rste of eight Hollars a day from the and of on* such seasion or meeting to the time of his taking his seat in another ? Provided alao, that no Senator shall receive more for go ing to, snd retnming from, the meeting of the Senate on the fourth day of March last, than if this sat bsd not been pessed. That is the law, and 1 canaot see that it makes the matter one whit more equitable. Yiae. Washington, April 14, 1840. The War and State Departments ?
