_WASHIHGrTOS _COREESPOITPENCE. Letter from *• Occasional*** (.Correspondence of The Prese.l Washington, Feb. 6,1861. No Government, old or new, has ever been snooessfolly conducted without money. Money is not only the sinews of war, hot the life-blood Of peace. No revolution has ever permanently triumphed without a large expenditure of money and the in* earring of immense debts. It is estimated by the _Hon Robert J. Walker, now in this city, and toiling incessantly on the side of the Union, that before the 1st of December, of the present year, Mr. Lincoln's Administration will be compelled to borrow, or raise from duties on imports, fifty-two millions of dollars- Should oar revenues continue to fall off, it will be impossible, under any revision of the present tariff, to raise this amount. A resort to loans will _beoome inevitable. The capitalists of the free States will, therefore, be compelled to contribute to maintain Mr. Lincoln's Administration. The immense interests in...

Fort Sumpter. We have been favored with a perusal of ax important and interesting private letter, from a member of the garrison of Fort Sumpter, to a friend in this city, which gives a graphic description of the state of affairs in that important post, and flatly contradicts somo of the statements in reference to it which, have recently appeared. Its principal passages are as follows: " EOBT _SOMPtKR, S. C., ) January 271861. J " Oar present status maybe described as,the lull before the storm.

Naval Matters at flew York. For the first time in a dozen years, it may be said that all the sea-faring vessels at the Brooklyn navy-yard are almost ready for service. Still, the foroe of workmen employed is far below the average; and the disbursements, which wonld amount to about $35,000 monthly, if regularly paid, are lower than they have been for a considerable period. We append a list ©i the vessels now in the hay, with a brief statement of their condition. The steam frigate _WafowA, twelve gone, three thousand two hundred tons burden, calculated to carry four hundred men, is at the wharf, having been some two months on hand. She is in good condition, and awaits her machinery, in which considerable alterations had to be made. If hurried four weeks would suffice to make her St for commission. The Wabash was last flag ship of the Mediterranean Squadron. t*-- - The steam frigate _Roanofa_, same Glass and armament with the Wabash, is in the dry dock, having unsound timber* repla...

-Akdrett Johnson embroidered the news of the Virginia election in a characteristically bold and brilliant speech, which began on Tuesday and closed yesterday afternoon. If any man had a right to feel proud of the verdjet of the Old Dominion it is this self-made statesman. Bis scoring ef Benjamin and _Hustek, and particularly of General Jo Lake, was terrific. It will be remembered that Mr. _Johnson, during the Presidential campaign, was an advocate of Bwkskih uidok and Lane; and yet the latter, at the close of the masterly speech of Mr. Johnson some weeks ago, was put forward by the Secessionists and attacked bis former friend with much severity. He told General Lane that daring his canvass in Tennessee he had denied that it was the intention of the BrecMnridge party to break up the Union, and he said that if General Lane had avowed his disunion and secession doctrines before as he has since the election, he could not have got ten thousand votes in Tennessee!

The Census of I860. A full report of the population of the whole country, according to the Census of 1860, has at length been published. It is interesting and important, not only because it fully realizes the meat sanguine calculations of our national growth during the last decade, but because it shows how largely the population and political power of the North will preponderate after the new apportionment is made. If ill the seceding States direct their Senators to return to the boty from which they have re cently retired, it will still contain but thirty thirt members from s laveholding States, and yeight from non-slaveholdisg States. In the House of Representatives , under the new apportionment, it is supposed that the Nortr will have one hundred and fifty members, and the South eighty-four, the former section gaining five, and the latter losing five, dur ing the last ten years. Cannot the North, having such ample power in both branches of Con. gross, and in the electoral vot...

Alt'. Hayne ' s Mission. The official report of the proceedings connected with the m ission of Mr; Bathe, of South C arolina, to Washington, to demand the surrender of Fort Sumpter, which we copy from the Charleston Mercury, is interesting, not so much because it announces any new facts, as on account of its confirmation of the reports which have from time to time been telegraphed throughout the country from the national capital. It appears that the President has flatly refused to surrender that stronghold to the Secessionists, and if recent events have not greatly modified their plans and purposes, they will very soon proceed to attack it. On the other hand, the Administration has announced its determination to reinforce it, if such a step is necessary, and it is scarcely possible that this duty has been entirely neglected.

Cox»-Geokgb ~W. Hughes, of Maryland, the Representative in Congress from the Annapolis district, delivered a masterly speech, on his side of the question, on Tuesday last. Although there is much in the opinions entertained by Col. Hughes to which we object, yet his utterance of them was in such happy contrast to the diatribes of ex-Governor Lowe and Hon. K. M. McLahe in the Secession meeting at Baltimore, a few days ago, that we are gratified in being able to point to it. Col. Hughes was a gallant soldier during the Mexican war, and in all his relations is an accomplished and courteous gentleman. We hope to see him, after the 'instructive lesson taught to Maryland by Virginia, rallying under the same flag he defended in that brilliant struggle. _^

Compliment to Gov. Packer. Our _Harrisburg correspondent informs ui that a large number of the Democratic mem. bers of the Pennsylvania Legislature recently addressed to Governor Packer a deservedly eulogistic letter, inviting him to meet them at a dinner, to be given at Buehlex's Hotel, and warmly approving his Gubernatorial career, as well as the sentiments on national affairs he expressed in his last annual message. No compliment was ever more properly and deservedly bestowed upon a public man. Gov. Packer has won golden opinions from men of all parties by his upright and patriotic course, and the evidence that it is at length becoming fully appreciated by the organization to which he has all Ms life been devotedly attached is peculiarly gratifying.
