Resignation of Secretary Randolph.

It was rumored on the street yesterday that Hon. George W. Randolph had resigned his office of Secretary of War. What may have been the cause or causes of his resignation, we are unable to say; but from all we know or can knew of the affairs of that deportment, we are induced to believe that the public has lost an able, upright, and most successful officer. No man can be blind to the fast that since his administration the affairs of the Confederacy have assumed an aspect that they never were before. The army has obtained successes, and the recourses of the country have been developed in a manner which attract the astonishment while they command the admiration of the would. That a large portion of these successes were due is the administration of the War Department, we held to be incontestable. At least it is certain that before he took charge of it, affairs a very difference aspect. Mr. Randolph's will go down to history in connection of its most splendid spots.
