Departure of Mr. Buchanan.

--Ex-President Buchanan left Washington Tuesday afternoon. He was escorted to the depot by four companies of military, and left with the hearty greetings of a large crowd. On his arrival in Baltimore, he proceeded to the residence of Zenos Barnum. At night he was serenaded, and, in closing a brief address, said:

‘ "My public history is before the people of this country, and whilst it does not behoove me to speak of it, I assure you of my willingness that they shall judge me. I have a kind regard for all the citizens of Baltimore, and that God may prosper and bless them all is the sincere prayer of an honest heart."

’ Soon as Mr. B. concluded, he was greeted with a hearty three times three, and still "three more for the last President of the United States."
