Resignation of Gov. Geary.
WASHINGTON, March 16.- A despatch has been received from Kansas, via St. Louis, announcing the resignation fo Gov. Geary, and desiring that he may ne relieved of further duty as speedily as possible.-- His reason for this is the impossibility of administering faithfully and satisfactorily the duties of his office, so long as the present organized opposition to him remains in force.
It is rumored here that the President will urge the Governor to remain, by promising to bring about a better state of things; but should he still refuse, it is rumored that Samuel W. Black, of Pennsylvania, will be nominated for the office.
