--Commander Edward L. Handy lately, while under orders to the sloop-of-war Marion, sent in his resignation to the U. S. Navy Department, which the Washington Star, an abolition paper, thinks will not be received and Capt. Handy's name stricken from the roll of the service.

The gentleman named in the above paragraph is well known in this city as an accomplished officer. He is connected by marriage with some of our old families. Our readers will remember, that some few weeks since Capt. Handy was detained by our authorities, because he had not then severed his connection with the Lincoln Government. His friends and the public will be glad to see that he has put himself right on the record. He could not have done otherwise and been true to his former reputation.
