OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON TERRITORY, MAY 3, 18g2. Floyd, the Ou Thief «u Forced to Keuga. ThuHow Weed writes a letter to the I»n --doti Star of February 13th, in which hejrives the following account of the manner in which John B. Floyd was brought to resign bis place as Secretary of War under Buchanan, which he had used to further the ends of trea son: In February, Mnj. Anderson, commanding at Fort Moultrie, Charleston harlior, finding his position endaugered, passed his garrison, by a prompt and brilliant movement, over to the stronger fortress of Suinter; whereupon, Floyd, Secretary of War, much excited, callud ujtoti the President to say that Major Ander son had violated express orders, and thereby Keriously compromised him (Floyd.) and that unless the Major was in-mediately remanded to Fort Moultrie he should resign the War Of fice. The Cabinet was assemhh-d directly. Bu chanan explaining the embarrassment of the Secretary of War, remarked that the act of Major Anderson would occasion exasjieratioti in the South; he had told Floyd that as the government was strong, forbearance towards "erring brethren might win them back to their allegiance," and that that officer might be or dered back. After an ominous silence the President enquired how the suggestion struck his Cabinet ? Stanton, just now called to the War Office, but then Attorney-General, answered: "That course, Mr. President, ought certainly to be re garded as most liberal towards "erring breth ren;" but while one member of your Cabinet has fraudulent acceptances for millions of dol lars.afloat, and while the confidential clerk of another—himself in Carolina teaching rebel lion—has just stolen nine hundred thousand dollars from the Indian Trust Fund, the ex periment of ordering Maj. Anderson bnck to Fort Moultrie would be dangerous. But if you intend to try it, before it is doue, 1 beg that you will accept my resignation." "And mine," added the Secretary of State, Black. "And mine, also," said the Postuiaster-Geu eral, Ilolt. "And mine, too," followed the Secretary of the Treasury, Dix. This, of course, opened the bleared eyes of the President, and the meet ing resulted in the acceptance of Floyd's resignation. CORINTH, MISS. —The town of Corinth, Mississippi, where it is supposed the rebel chiefs will make another desperate stand, is thus described in a late issue of the Si/rrr Age: Corintli is shunted on the line of the Mem phis nnrl Charleston railroad, about 1.10 miles from Memphis, and about 220 miles from Stephenson, the junction i>f tlio Memphis ami Charleston railroad. Corintli is a town of from 300 to /iOO inhabitants, in fact nothing more than a dining station on the railroad. Its natural strength and strategic importance may be thus enumerated. It is the centre of ii Hat country that nflords no coinmnnding high grounds; is located on the head of n swamp shaped like a horse-shoe, that forms ail impenetrable barrier on three sides—north, south and vest. Six miles west of Corinth, the railroad is built on piles through a lake or pond, the water varying from a few inches to several feet in depth. For 30 miles out side of this pond the ground is low, swainpy, and heavily timbered, impracticable except on the line of railroad, which will be torn up the moment Memphis falls into the hands of the Federals. To the east of Corinth the country is level, the soil rich, and is the finest cotton district in the State. To-day Corinth is in connection by railroad with New Or leans, Mobile, Charleston, Nashville, and a vast number of intermediate town*, and a large scope of productive country. rp" The N. V. Tribnnr publishes a letter from a distinguished Englishman, formerly a member of l'arliament, which shows how public opiuion has been manufactured across the water, and what extraordinary induce ments have been held out by Davis k Co., to gain supporters; we append the following extract: "Long before Secession wu an accom plished tact, the press of England had been tampered with by the emissaries of TOUT dis union party. Men had been industriously at work to prepare the way for tbe speedy re cognition <>t the independeure of tue Cotton States. The programme '4* Jefferson l>aris and bis co-conspirators had been made known, and arguments supplied wherewith it might be supported. Men here were already wit h their briefs and their retaining The simultsneous rising of the Free States, and the iinprovisitation of as immense aroiv of loyal men, greatlj disconcerted the machina tions of Yancey, Mann, and their corrupt tools, and necessitated the adoption of n dif ferent course of action; but they art- still ac tive, and tbe plunder of tbe ttub-Truasuries of the South still holds out, and is freelv distributed among tbose who are base enough to be the instruments of the worst of traitom and vilest of despots." A XBW WORD.— -Since the advent of Her man, tbe 44 Prestidigitator,, and tint Hanlions, with the great feat of "xampillaermtration," big worda are all the go with the showmen. A Boaton aquarial exhibition has as a feature of ila entertainment a feat called Uahenapiacim aritraction," which is a trick as big aa the name, being nothing leaa thnu driving a live whale through a great tank in the gardens, by Miss Leonn. 44 Bslenapitcimaritraction" rath er lets old Webster out. Ax Opium DREAM.—The Local of the

IlrrmU has been taking opium with a Chinese opina smoker, and gives his bliasfal experi ence as follows: Two year* and seven months passed, or n lapse of lime that seemed equivolent, although in reality but three or four minutes, and the heavens began to mil up like a vast scroll,and iu procession marched |iast the personified ter ror* of the Apocaly|ise, including the immor tal teaole of liabylonaiid the beast with seven heads ond ten bonis. We lost our identity. We d«an ourself the rosy essence of a dream, waflod through space on sypliyr pinions over a sea of ravishing music, sweet as the kiss of love and golden as the vision of childhood. At that blissful moment a package of fire crackers was by accident ignited In-side the couch from which we had been lifted to the realms of perfect ecstacy. The sudden ming ling of the tumult of exploding crackers with our musical wanderings through eiysium, was dreadful, indiscribable. A brief struggle; a falling, night-mare sensation; and we were again an inhabitant of the earth. The first object we discovered was Chee Yup attempt ing-.to destroy the exploding crackers. Half ob livious, we arose in thefaco of the almost tear ful protestations of the Celestial and drawing oil our patent leathers, groped our way dream ily into the street, An hour elapsed before the singular sensation wore off, during which time we walked incessantly, apparently en tranced and impelled by an invisible agency to which we yielded without resistance ormis giving. Thus elided our opium smoking. We shall try hasheesh next, aud live the thousand years that Bayard Taylor made an enraptured pilgrimage through in twenty min utes. SUCCESS CERTAIN. —The New York Times quotes a letter "from the higest possible au thority" in Washington, which concludes as follows. Of the enemy and Gen. McClellan's designs upon them it says : a "Gen. McClellan has them caught in their own trap. Tliey are like a fox in a burrow with one hole (Manassas,) where they roust soon be forced out, and llien Gen. McClellan will full upon them like n thunderbolt. The public will not then complain of bis want of energy. I tell you it will be so fearful as to have wailing ana mourning go up from every Southern household. Knowing what I do, and having thus but Imrelv hinted at the grand plan of the campaign, 1 repeat, that the rebels are doomed, and secession will never again raise its hydra head in the land. The folds of the giant constrictor are now tighten ing around the rebellion, and the coming month will see it crushed out, completely and forever. Again 1 say, look out for u short war and a desperate one. Hint SCENE IX TUB WHEELING LEOISLA TI:RB. —The Wheeling (Vn.) Legislature hav ing (iuished the business before it, adjourned recently. Immediately previous to adjourn ment, the following rather rich proceeding transpired : llatcliff offered a resolution proposing to as certain if the Senate would accept the Ten Commandments without amendment, if first passed by tho House. He remarked that no proposition from tho House had ever gone to the Senate without coming back amended, lie desired before the adjournment, to submit something that would meet their ..pprobation. The Speaker appointed llatcliff to communi cate the passage of the resolution to the Sen ate. llatcliff accordingly picked up the res olution and amidst great laughter, proceeded to the Senate chamber. He subsequently re turned and reported to tho House that the Senate insisted that there were thirteen Com mandments, and refused, therefore, to accept the House resolution without amendment. - • • • Thk Hrbbi.,Cbittbmikn. —The Louisville Journal has an article defending the rebel, Crittenden, from the charges heaped upon hiin by the secesh press since he was defeated at Ijognn's Field. The Journal concludes by saying : There ran scarcely be a doubt that the risking of the battle at Mill Spring, disastrous as tin- result was to the Southern Confederacy, was the beat thing, that, in (lie exigency then existing. General Crittenden could poasiblv do. The calamitous battle averted a still more terrible calamity. Without entering in to details, we may state the fact, that General I'uell had made Btrageticarrangements which, but for the battle, would certainly have re sulted in the capture of the whole of General Crittenden's command. As it was, Geuerai Critt nderi saved the bulk of his army, enab ling it to escape and disperse. Unquestion ably, Geuerai itaell, on ilea ring of the a flair, glorious as it waa to our arms, experienced a keen pang of disappointment. EXFF.XIMV* SHOT. —The gunboat Monitor is arned with two huge Columbians, and fur nished with 400 wrought iron shot that weigh 280 pound* each; costing 847 each. Cast iron shot are liable to break in pieces when fired against thick iron plates. These wrought iron shot are for smashing through the sides of such secession floating batteries as the Merritnac at Norfolk, end Hollin's Turtle at New Orleans.— Sfirutijie America*. (7 An amusing sword presentation VM made bv the officer* of the Seventy-eight P»nnpylrania to their Colonel, Win. SirwelL The presentation speech of Capt, Gillespie was : "Here we are and here it is. This ia a bully sword, and cornea from bully fellowa. Take it, and uae it in a bally manner." Col. Sinrell'a reply was: "Captain, that was a bully speech. I/et att take a bully drink." From Ben. Franklin's paper, nihil the New England Comrmmt, published at B—ton. Feb. 11, 17 S3, we copy the following: The present publisher having received the following piece, desires the renders to ac cept of it as a preface to what they may hereafter meet with in this paper: AM ego moedaci <ii*tn*xi carmine quonqmam mull romeuato litera omistofoeo eat. Long has the press groaned in bringing forth an hateful, bnt numerous brood of party pamphlets, malicious scribbles and billingsgate ribaldry. The rancor and bitterness H hss unhappily infused into men's minds, and to what a degree it has soured and leavened the tempers of persons formerly esteemed some of the most sweet and affable, is too well known here to need any further proof or rep resentation of the matter. No generous and impartial person then can blame the present undertaking, which is de signed purely for the diversion and merriment of the reader. Pieces of pleasantry and mirth have a secret charm in them to allay the heats and tumors of our spirits, and to make a man forget his restless resentments. They have a strange power to tune the harsh disorders of the soul, aud reduce us to a Berene and placid state of mind. The main design of this weekly paper will be to entertain the town with the most comical and diverting incidents of human life, which in so large a place as Boston, will not fail of a universal exemplification; nor shall we be wanting to fill up these papers with a grateful interspersion of more serious morals, which may be drawn from the most ludicrous and odd parts of life. As for the author, that is the next question. But though we profess ourselves ready to oblige the ingenious and courteous reader with most sorts of intelligence, yet here we beg a reserve. Nor will it be of any manner of ad vantage either to them or the writers, that their names should be published; and there fore in this matter we desire the favor of you to sufler us to hold our tongues: Which, though at this time of day, it may sound like a very uncommon request, yet it proceeds from the very hearts of your humble servants. BytL is time the reader perceives that more than one are engaged in the present undertak ing. Yet is there some person, an inhabitant of this town of Boston, whom we honor as a Doctor in the Chair, or a ptrpetual Dictator. The society hnd designed to present the public with his etiigies, but that the limner to whom he was preferred for a draught of his countenance, descryed (and he is ready to off er upon oath) nineteen features in his face, more than he ever beheld in any hnman vis age before; which so raised the price of his picture, that our master himself forbid the ex travaganco of coming up to it. And then, besides, the liinner objected a schism in his face, which splits it from his forehead in a straight line down to his chin, in snch sort, that Mr. Painter protests it is a double face and he'll have (number of pounds sterling, not legible— ED.) for the portraiture. How ever, though this face has spoilt us of a pret ty picture, yet we all rejoiced to see old Fan us in our company. There is no man in Boston better qualified than old Fnnus for a Couranteer, or if you please, an Obtervator, being a man of such re markable optics, as to look two ways at once. As for morals, he is a chearly Christian, as the country phrase expresses it. A man of good temper, courteous deportment, sound judgement; a mortal hater of nonsense, fop pery, formality, and endless ceremony. As for his Club, they aim at no greater hap piness or honor, than the public be made to know, that it is the utmost of their ambition to attend upon and do all imaginable good offices to good old Fanus, the Couranteer, who is and always will be the readers humble ser vant. P. S. Gentle readers, we design never to let a paper pass without a Latin motto if we can possibly pick one up, which carries a charm in it to the vulgar, and the learned ad mire the pleasure of construing. We should have obliged the world with a Greek scrap or two, but the printer haa no types, and there fore we intreat the candid trader not to im pute the defect to our ifnoranee, for our Doc tor can aay all the Greek letters by heart.

I little child in the froat row of the spectators becoming frightened, rnsbed forward jast as a squadron of hnsaaia won charring at fall tilt—swooping down with maddening velocity, nay, almost on the child. Terror paralyzed Alike the •pectaton and the mother, while tha lovely and Kin press almost fainted with horror, for tha child's destruction seemed inevitable. Tha little one was almost under the hones feet— another instant would have sealed its doom ; when A hussar without lessening his apeed or hulk, threw himself along his horse's neck, and seizing the child, placed it in ssfety in front of his saddle, without as much as cbsng* ing his pace or breaking the alignment in the least. A hundred thousand voicts hailed with pride and joy the deed, while bat two voices could but sob their gratitude; the oa* a mother's, the other that of her sympathising and belovered Empress. A proud moment that must have been for the hussar when hia Emperor, taking the enamelled cross of merit, attached it to his breast; a proud moment alike for the sovereign and the man I WHAT CAMS OP A COTTON HANDKKI* CHlEF.— Within a few weeks there died in on* of the towns of Bristol county, a man leaving property to the amount of $60,000, who in his youthful days was the owner of a nine-penny cotton handkerchief, which like many an ob ject of more importance, has its own history. Upon one balmy day in August, when whor tleberries were thick and mosquitoes were plenty, he, in company with other juveniles of either sex, made an excursion, for the berries. Amon<* them was one rosy cheek lass who was exceedingly annoyed by the numerous bills presented, and whose white neck rebelled against their acceptance; but nevertheless the aforesaid cotton rag was offered and accepted as a protection, worn home and that night thrown aside and forgotteu. The girl grew into womanhood, married, and was happy ia her forgetfulness of the "cotton loan" or its embrowed and freckled owner. Not so with him. As year succeeded year and his "pile" increased, that investment in cotton troubled him, until not long since he made a certain resolution. The next day there was heard at tho lady's residence the miser's nervous knock and without introduction or parley he remind ed her of the loau which for forty rears she had forgotten, and informed her tnat upon careful calculation of the debt he made the loan and interest amount to the exact sum of eighty-seven cents, which he suggested per haps she would be willing to repay. In reply he was told that it would give her pleasure to discharge her indebtedness to him for even so small a sum, and that night an addition of eighty-seven cents was made to his "pile."— Thornton Gazette A NASHVILLE LADY.— An Eastern corres pondent, writing from Nashville, and speaking of a trip though that cityv remarks: A little further and the party passed slowly by a costly carriage, out of one of whose win dows was thrust the head of an elegantly dressed lady.
