The Congressional Resignation proposition. Washington,, Jan. 27. --The proposition of Montgomery that the members of Congress resign, and that arrangements be made for the election of their successors to meet on the 22d of February, in order that they may be fresh from the people, and adjust our political difficulties, is so far successful as to have been signed by Messrs. Montgomery and Florence, of Pa.; Bocock, of Va.; Martin, of Va.; Garnett, of Va.; Jenkins, of Va.; Edmondson, of Va.; Dejarnette, of Va.; Wright and A very, of Tenn.; Briggs, of N.

The cannel Coal business ruined. --The discovery of immense reservoirs of oil under ground, needing only the use of an auger to render it available, has utterly ruined the cannel coal business. The works in this county and Taylor are lying unfinished and idle. Meanwhile hundreds and thousands of persons are making money out of the oil business in our neighboring counties. Coopers are in great demand, it being found impossible to have barrels made as fast as they are needed. In a word, oil is the source from whence Wirt and Ritchie and perhaps other counties are drawing vast sums of money.--Marion County Virginian.

Retention of a public officer. --A petition is in circulation in Richmond, and has been very extensively signed, asking Mr. Lincoln to retain Col. Thos. B. Bigger as Postmaster. It is signed by members of all parties, and states that the Colonel has given satisfaction, as head of postal arrangements in Richmond, to five Presidents of the United States--a fact the public will readily admit. The Whigs protested against his removal when General Taylor was elected, and he was retained. Col. B. is a veteran of the war of 1812. He also, from his long connexion with the post-office, understands its workings better, we suppose, than anybody that the President might be induced to put in his place.

The New Foreign Ministers. --The Federal Administration, as announced, has also made its selection of Ministers for the important European Courts. Hon. Charles Francis Adams, a member of the last Congress from Massachusetts, and a son of John Quincy Adams, is nominated for England. Hon. Wm. L. Dayton, of New Jersey, is nominated for the French Mission. Mr. Dayton served a term in the United States Senate, and was a candidate for Vice President on the Fremont ticket in 1856. Hon. George P. Marsh, of Vermont, gets the Sardinian Mission, which was so strongly demanded by Carl Schurz. Mr. Marsh served one term in the House of Representatives, and was appointed Resident Minister to Turkey by President Taylor in 1849. He is more eminent as a scholar and author than as a politician. Gen. Watson Webb, editor of the New York Courier, has been nominated Minister to the Turkish Porte.
