The Southern Congress and the Forts. The Southern Congress yesterday adopted a resolution declaring that the new Confederacy will tafce complete charge of all difficulties which have arisen between the States connected with it and the General Government in regard to forts, arsenals, ele. Thus the excitable warriors of the Palmetto State will be obliged to abandon their favorite project of attacking _Fort Sumpter nntil their new President authorizes them te assail it , and those among them who are gifted with any considerable degree of sagacity are probably rejoiced that a good pretext is thus afforded them for avoiding for the present the fire of the awful batteries which Major Anderson can open upon any foe who assails Ms stronghold. One of the greatest dangers of an immediate collision is thus avoided, and time is left for the reaction which " cannot be far distant , when the " sober second thought" of many of the people of the Gulf States will teach them the folly of assailin...

The Tennessee Election . A despatch, which we received at a late hour last night, indicates that the late election in Tennessee, encouraging as previous reports represented it to be, was still a more decided Union triumph than the most sanguine could have anticipated. It is supposed that but two Secessionists have been elected in the whole State, and that at least fifty thousand majority has been given against them. When the extraordinary influences which were brought to bear by the Disunionlsts and the de moralizing example of the Gulf States are considered, our citizens will be enabled to appreciate what a proud proof of devotion to the Union the home of the Hero of the Hermitage has thus given ; and they will not bo unmindful of the sacred obligation it imposes upon them , to meet with a fraternal and sympathizing spirit these friendly advances for the perpetuation of the glorious Confederacy, which has been the source of all the national greatness, and most of the individual...

The United States Treasury. The letter sent yesterday by the Hon. Johk A. Dix, the new and efficient Secretary of the Treasury, to Hon. . Johh ShbkmAh , chairman of tho Committee of Ways and Means , affords another striking proof of the deplorable condition of the National Treasury and of the terribly disordered state of the finances of the Government , notwithstanding its repeated loans. Extravagance, mismanagement, fraud, corruption , and a failure to properly urge upon Congress the necessity of increasing the rate of duties, have done their legitimate work, and almost ruined the credit of the great Government which, when the present Administration came into power , stood higher than that of any nation upon the face of the globe. What a lesson does this afford to our statesmen, and how imperatively necessary does it render the change in our revenue laws , which has too long been postponed I

The Fire Department. An " irrepressibl e conflict" appears to be breaking out between conflicting interests in the fire department, and between those who are anxious to perpetuate forever " the timehonored volunteer system ," on the one band, and to break it up and inaugurate a regular paid fire department on the other. How the present agitation will be determined , we canmot pretend to foretell; but the final triumph of those who wish to make the extinguishment of fires a regular and systematic business is only a _question of time. The change , however, will, and should be, a gradual and almost imperceptible one, so that no violence is done to the feelings and vrews of the many gallant men [who, from disinterested motives, liave earnestly straggled to protect the property and lives of the community from de-«_trnr.t,inn.
