From the Pacific Squardron.

--Advices from the Pacific squadron record the resignation of ten officers of the fleet. The Commander-in-Chief was about to forward a list of their names to Washington. The United States corvette St. Mary's, needing an overhauling, was bound to San Francisco. At Mare Island the newly-appointed paymaster and inspector of provisions, Mr. Charles Murray, had arrived and taken possession of his post. The officers at the station were preparing for the examination of the Navy Department a specimen of some recently-discovered timber, said to be admirably adapted for ship-building. The only man-of-war ever built in California, the steam gun-boat Saginaw, now in the East Indles, was so badly. ‘"spoiled"’ that there is little likelihood of any more being put on the stocks there for the present.
