General Assembly of Virginia,[extra session.] Senate. Wednesday, Jan, 9th. The Senate was called to order at 12 o'clock by the President. Prayer by Rev. Dr. J. L. Burrows, of the Baptist Church. The Alabama Commissioners.--A communication from the House of Delegates was received, informing the Senate of the adoption of a resolution for the appointment of a joint committee to receive and confer with the Commissioners from Alabama. The said resolution was concurred in, and the President appointed as a Committee on the part of the Senate Messrs. August, Stuart and Neeson.

Message from the President. Washington, Jan. 9. --The President sent in a message to-day. In it he says the affairs of the country are growing worse, instead of better, and hope is still more diminished. Alluding to the condition of South Carolina, he says there is no other alternative but to collect the revenues and protect the public property there. It is his duty to execute the laws of the nation — not inquire into their justice. He says, at the commencement of the session, he recommended measures of relief, which, as he believed, would have the effect of tranquilizing the country and save it from the perils in which it has been needlessly and unfortunately placed.

Congressional. Washington, Jan. 9. --Senate.--The President's Message was received and ordered to be printed. Mr. Hunter took the floor on the Message for Friday, and Mr. Seward for Saturday. Mr. Clarke, of Mo., introduced resolutions favoring the enforcement of the laws and the perpetuation of the Union. After the reading of the Message, Mr. Davis, of Miss., said the President had misrepresented the position of the South Carolina Commissioners, and then declined to receive a paper correctly defining their views. He endorsed the high standing of the Commissioners, and laid on the Clerk's table their rejoinder to the President which he had refused to receive. Mr. King, of New York, objected to its being read — and sharp words ensued. Messrs. Bigler and Trumbull urged its reading. Messrs. Fessenden and Bright objected, except as a part of Mr. Davis' speech. Under a decision of the Chair, the paper was read at length. Mr. Davis then resu
From Washington. Washington, Jan. 9. --The War Department is in possession of information that the Governor of South Carolina has forbidden the United States Sub-Traasurer at Charleston from paying the drafts of the Paymaster in favor of Major Anderson and his command, and that the Sub-Treasurer has refused accordingly. Commander Maury says that the long passage of the U. S. sloop Levant does not, in his judgment, justify the supposition of her loss. He gives reasons for his belief. It is denied by gentlemen very intimately related to the Administration, that recruits to Fort Sumter were ordered without the previous sanction of the President. It is further asserted that the subject was discussed in the Cabinet, and the Acting Secretary of War, as well as some other members of the Cabinet, clearly understood that it was the wish of the President that recruits should at once be sent there.
