Ex-President Tyler.

This aged public servant returned yesterday from Washington city, and is sojourning at the Exchange. Regarded with general respect and veneration as he is, he is looked to with deep interest in his present labor of love in endeavoring to restore peace to his distracted country. But he comes back from the Federal city, we would infer from what we hear, with certainly no increase of hope. If there are really any strong indications of a brighter day to excite hopes in the minds of Messrs. Crittenden, Douglas , and others, they have not been manifested to him, or his joy would be reflected in his own countenance, which was wont so to beam with cheerfulness and benignity. It is plain that his concern for his country is none the less, and that his heart is heavily oppressed with what he has seen and heard.
