Important Correspondence— Colo* ncl Benton andj Preside] it Polk. >\c, are indebted to the Washington Union fur the following! corrcspoi dence. It will be seen that on the Cth .of the present month, CoL Benton demanded of the President, powers both military and diplomatic, the command of the army, and authority to sign preliminaries ot peace—at the same time intimating that he disapprc ved, as well of the plan of General Tayloi as that of General Scott. The Presiden considered the matter, and declined the proposition. Whereupon Mnjor-Gencral Benton, immediately resigned. Mr. Benton's proposition to supersede Gen. Taylor, Scott, Butler ami Patterson,, under the circumstances, was, to say the least of it, very selfish and i iscredilable, and reveals hisfruc character, p -rhaps plainer than any other public act of his life.
