Seward says all will be right--Mr. Everett Thinks not.

We have been furnished with the following extract of a letter dated ‘"Washington, D. C., Jan. 29,"’ from a highly respectable gentleman to a member of the Virginia Senate:

‘ "I spent a very pleasant afternoon, on yesterday, with Mr. Everett, at a friends's house, in Georgetown. He says that Seward assured him on Thursday last that all things would yet come right, but declined giving his reasons for so thinking; but that he (Mr. E.) has no hope of an adjustment, or even peaceable separation."
