[Correspondence ot the Herald.l Washington, April 17,1848 Appointment of Mr. Sparkt Contul to Nnplet- Mr. Iytbranche Naval Officer at New Orltant? Con iuUhip at Havre and Grumbling Respecting it Senator Fairfield and the Maine Appointment<? Mr. Ritchie, Mr. Blair, the Organ, tfr The Prudent, I understand, has appointed Mr. Spark* as Consul to Naples in the plac? of Mr. Hammet now there, who has been stated to be a brother of Dr. Hammet, the M. C. from Mississippi, but I understand that this is incorrect, no relation ship existing between these gentlemen. Mr Sparks is from South Carolina, and 1 believe is an accomplished scholar and linguist, and has been appointed to this post as he will be ot great service to Mr. Polk's brother in his post of Charge to Na ples. I learn that Mr. Polk will sail in company with Mr. SparkB, probably about the middle of next month, in a merchant ship. I have also been informed that Mr. Labranchs, late M C. trom Louisiana, either is or will be ap pointed Naval Officer at New Orleans. This will be another member ot Congress provided for, and will not, I believe, add to President Polk's popular ity in New Orleans. Various persons, who were seeking for, and ex pected to be appointed to, the Consulship at Havaaa, are very much dissatisfied that Mr. Polk will not remove Mr. Campbell, who is, as they say, a whig, and a la"wyer, and ought not to be there. Some New Yorkers, who think that the Commercial Emporium is in justice entitled to one or two of the large consulships, feel very indignant that all their representations should be unheeded, and be gin to say that Mr. Polk had better take care not to strengthen the Van Buren clique too much, by re fusing to give any appointments to the young de moeracie of that State?they might be tempted to join the regency in fighting against the administra tion. Senator Fairfield, of Maine, is doing his " best est" here to have all the old officers in Maine re moved, and appointees selected from his own clique, or those of his recommending, which, if carried out, those who profess to know say, will be the destruction of the party in that State.? Some individuals from Maine, who came here on business and have since gone awav home, told me that they never knew how Mr. Fairfield got into Congress; that it was only by accident, he was elected Governor in consequence of some adventi tious popularity he acquired by movirg for an en quiry into the " Cilley affair," and that he waB on ly elected Senator as a stop-gap, as he was expect ed to go into the Cabinet to take care of the Navy, (and the fact of this expectation is said to be a cause why Polk is desirous of yielding to bis wish es in regard to these appointments.) When the Cabinet was formed without him, there was some understanding that he was to resign to make way for his competitors, and he is said to be now trying to induce Mr. Polk to appoint these persons, in or der to stop their mouths. We shall see if ne suc ceeds, Mr. Ritchie is expected in his prospectus to soft soap Blair pretty well. He first ot all refused to come while Blair was at the head of the Globe, and now that Blair has been " kicked out," he will say all sorts of sweet things. 1 presume he will endeavor to make it appear that Blair's telling Mr. Polk he would write to General Jackson and Mr. Wright, was an evidence of " high-minded ness," and that his sending to Albany to obtain leave of the clique to retire, was v(ry " honorable," and that Mr. Dix's supervision of tbe " organ" un der Mr. Ritchie's charge will be very gratifying, Jcc. dec. <fco. Nous verront. The whole concern I will be an utter failure, mentally, morally, and pe cuniarily. Washington, April 17, 1846. Anxiety for the fVettern't Newt?Marriage in Town?Proceeds of Blair tf Rivet't Election Bett ? Tammany Hall No. 2?Mr. Bancroft't Bar m in?The E litor of the Richmond Enquirer, fyc. Tlv late of those three unheard of packet ships, at a unwonted delay ot the return of the Great W rn, had excited some little apprehension for h safety. But we find by the London Newt, Timet, and Punch, upon the counter of Shurta 61 Taylor, that the brave old ship is safely up into port. The report of her arrival came in by the 11 o'clock train, and great anxiety prevails for the news from England. The administration are not the least curious to see the returns by the Great Western. Young Abert. the priva e secretary of Hon. R. J. Walker, of the Treasury, last evening took the oath of matrimonial allegiance with the beautiful and accomplished Miss Bache, a sister-in-law of the distinguished Mississippi advocate of annexa tion. Hon. Thomas H. Benton and family. Hon. James Buchanan, Hon. R. J. Walker and lady, and others of the "upper ten" dozen of Washing ton, were present. It is said that this family alli ance was paramount in securing Mr. Abert hiB de sirable and confidential appointment. The thirty-five thousand dollars won by Blair and Rives, of the Globe, upon the late Presidential elections, are to be consecrated to the erection of a Democratic Hall in this city. The appropriation has been wisely bestowed ; the edifice proposed will at once stand as a monument of the liberality and the orthodoxy of the founders of Tammany Hall No. 2 It was a stipulation insisted upon by Blair and Rives, that the name of the "Globe" should be changed with the change of the pro prietors. George Bancroft, Secretary ot the Navy, rents the house ot Mr. Blair, opposite the Executive De partments of the War and Navy, at S800 a year. Such a residence, " up town," in New Yoik, would bring an annual dividend to the owner of at least two thousand. The venerable editor of the Richmond Enquirer, in answer to a late declaration of ours that Mr. Cal houn furnished the lunds for the purchase of the Globt establishment, positively denies that the said John Caldwell is interested to the amount of a sin gle red cent. Now, we tell the respected editor of the Enquirer that wc are glad to hear it. Hon. Alcee Labranche, of La , is to be Naval Agent for the port of New Orleans. Mr. Elmore, ot S. C., goes to England. This appointment will be very satisfactory to South Carolina, no doubt, but Mr. Buchanan scratches his head. Before the expiration of the week it is expected that the Cabinet will take up the removals tor the State of New York seriatim. Bon. P.

It is understood that Mr. Henry Welsh is to be appointed Collector of Philadelphia. This will be a very popular appointment in the State. Mr. Welsh is an intelligent, honest, aad industrious gentleman. He was formerly editor of the Harris bttrgh Reporter?it one time a Van Buren elector ?and afterwards engaged in mercantile pursuits for a few years at Philadelphia. He is at present residing in York. Mr. Welsh has numerous triends throughout the State of Pennsylvania, and the Pre sident haa made a wise selection. Mr. Henry Horn, and others, were prominent candidates lor the office.
