Washington, Jan. 8. --Secretary Thompson, of the Interior, to-day resigned, on the ground that after the order to reinforce Major Anderson was countermanded on the 31st December, there was a distinct understanding that no troops should be ordered South, without the subject being considered by, and decided on in, the Cabinet. At the Cabinet meeting on the 2nd inst., the matter was again debated, but not determined. Notwithstanding these facts, the Secretary of War, without the knowledge of Mr. Thompson, sent 250 troops in the Star of the West, to reinforce Major Anderson.--Not learning of this until this morning, he now resigns on hearing it.

in uncontrollable applause. The Florida forts taken. The following is an extract from a letter, dated Fernandina, Florida, Jan. 5th: "An order came from the Governor this afternoon at three o'clock, and the Everglade will leave here at midnight for St. Augustine, to have the fort there taken, and to bring us some guns and small arms. "The messenger from the Government reports that the Ordinance of Secession will be ready to be read and passed in Convention on Monday, the 7th inst. Our people here and elsewhere in the State are ripe for secession. The good faith with which the people of South Carolina have acted, and the perfidious act of the Federal authorities, has given additional strength to Florida to fight and win her battles." The Charleston Mercury since learned that a detachment of the Fernandina Volunteers has executed promptly the order of Governor Perry. "blue lights" in South Carolina.

i Valley is entirely deserted, the inhabitants having removed farther into the interior for protection.

A company of Rangers fell in with a large party of Indians on the 11th inst., and after a short fight, took fifteen of them prisoners, and brought them to Jacksboro'. While there another party of white men arrived, who, by their actions, so frightened the prisoners that they managed to break from their guards. The fleeing Indians were fired upon by the whites, and one killed and another wounded, and one aged man, seemingly the chief, retaken prisoner. The old man was taken to Weatherford, where, in hopes of making friends with the tribe, said to be the Kickapoo,
Suicide of a policeman. --Policeman McMullen hanged himself in New Orleans on the 26th ultimo. He had been principal witness against a convicted murderer, who, when asked by the Judge why sentence of death should not be passed upon him, proclaimed his innocence, and in strong language, though decorous to the Court, anathematized the police, charging them with perpetrating crimes and throwing the penalties upon others. The circumstance and coincidence gave rise to numerous rumors in the community, the most generally received one being that McMullen hung himself through remorse, in having convicted a man of murder by false evidence.--Another was, that McMullen had himself committed the murder for which another was convicted on his evidence.

A short time before noon Major Anderson assembled the whole of his little force, with the workmen employed on the fort, around the foot of the flag-staff.
