. , Waahlnctaa Correspoadeace. Special Correspondence, of tbe Picayune Wasbinoton, Aug. iS, 1853. Tbe following appointments, which have most of them been heretofore annonneed, informally, will be officially published in to - morrow's Union. The list is Interesting and important, because so many changes are made sometimes after an appointment has actually been conferred and before its official announcement, that nothing less than the official record can generally be relied upon.

The capital is excessively dull, and tbe news market decidedly flat. There is really little transpiring here at present worth the room its relation would occupy in your columns. I shall send yon to - morrow, however, a Treasury circu lar of much interest to the business community There is something new developing also in the Tebnanteprc business, of which I hope to be ble to tell you more in a few hours. I am in formed by a gentleman who professes to know, and who ia in a position that should make him conversant with tbe matter, that the Tehuante - pee interest has fallen into foreign hands, and is giving the Administration a great deal of trouble in consequence. I learn also, that the President and Cabinet are in great tribulation relative to the look of affairs in New Hampshire. No one ought to be better acquainted with political movements and portents in that State than the President; and he confesses to the apprehension that John P. Hall, the Abolitionist, may be returned to the TJ. S Senate. Tbe Free Soilers and Abolitionists evidently hold the balance of power in tbe Legislature; while, on the other hand, the Burke split in the Democratic ranks still further complicates complicates the difficulty. Hale's chances are rer - amly much better now than when he was elected to the U. S. Senate before. He was un derstood to have retired to private life, and was expected to settle in New Vork; but the un expected turn affairs bare taken in New Hamp shire politics, haa led him, it is stated, to place himself again "in the hands of his friends." Samuel J. Peters, Esq , late Collector at New Orleans, basjust closed his accounts with the Treasury Department, and found a balance of several hundred dollars in his favor. Beverly Sanders, Esq, late Collector at San Francisco, also stands before the country with a clean balance sheet the first who has filled that office whose accounts were not involved in mis understanding, perplexity and doubt - Suits have beeu or will be instituted against both James Collier and T. Butler King, for large sums claimed by the Department to be due to the Go vernmenu SiostA.
