Congressional. Washington, Jan. 16 --House.--Mr. Cox presented a series of conciliatory resolutions from Ohio. Mr. Briggs presented a similar series from New York, praying for the passage of the compromise suggested by the Border State Committee. In Committee of the Whole, the Army bill was discussed. Mr. Garnett, of Va., made a speech, in which he remarked that Virginia would join no Border State Confederacy, but would link herself to the South, and would become the leader of the Southern Confederacy. In concluding his speech he adverted to the propriety of a peaceable settlement between the two sections, the arrangement of a system of customs, and the formation of a defensive and offensive alliance. This, he thought, would secure all the advantages of the present Confederation, without its evils. Mr. Gurley, of Ohio, made a speech, and in it alluded to the seizure of the forts, magazines and arsenals at the South, &c. He called the Southern people traitor
From Washington. Washington, Jan. 16. --Lieut. Hall departed to-day for Fort Sumter with instructions for Major Anderson. Their character is unknown, but it has been ascertained that the troops will not be withdrawn from the fort, and that it will be defended to the last extremity. Col. Hayne, Commissioner from South Carolina, has, it is understood, moderated his views since his arrival here, and will remain several days. The opinion is almost unanimous in secession circles, that all collision at present should be studiously avoided. Col. H. has been in daily consultation with the leaders of the secession movement, who are opposed to hostilities.

Anderson to have every facility for marketing and obtaining other domestic supplies. The plan now before the Committee of the House on Federal Relations, in connection with the Ho
From South Carolina. Charleston, Jan. 16. --Gov. Pickens has sent a message to the Legislature, advising the raising of two more artillery companies and one more regiment, to serve three years. He advises permanently garrisoning the fortifications of South Carolina. This may be expensive, but considering we will soon have a Southern Confederacy the cost will be lessened. The fanaticism of the Northern States shows that if we would have peace, we must prepare for war. The House of Representatives has passed a bill to stay the collection and prosecution of all debts due by South Carolina to men in the non-slaveholding States until after December next. Lieut. R. K. Meade, Jr., (of Petersburg, Va.,) of Fort Sumter, reached here to-day, on a leave of absence to go home to Virginia to visit his sister, who is ill.
Southern News, via New York. Washington, Jan. 16 --The New York Herald's Washington correspondent says that South Carolina, regarding, as she does, the occupation of Fort Sumter as a standing menace, has notified Maj. Anderson that she intends to take it, cost what it may. Maj. Anderson responds that he has no authority to do otherwise than to do find it; but he would refer it to Washington. When the President ascertained the nature of Col. Hayne's mission, (which was as stated above,) he refused to recognize him in any other capacity than as a citizen of a sovereign State.
