Political view of General Butler's resignation.

--A Philadelphia paper says:

‘ "This is significant, as showing the bitterness of feeling which is growing up between the Radicals and the Conservatives at Washington. General Butler tendered his resignation some time since, or as soon as he heard that Lieutenant-General Grant was about to give him a scoring in his official report. The matter was laid over, and nothing more was said about it until a few days since, when General Butler was called to Washington for a conference with the President. Sequel: General Butler was not satisfied; the conference was not a happy one to him. He looked up his old resignation, and had it accepted before the time came when its acceptance might appear creditable to him. Consequence: General Butler will now be a bitter opponent of the Administration."
