The unexpected advance of interest to 7 per cent, by the Banks of England and France had produced a severe check in commerce. England will not longer propose to Austria for the sale of Venetia. There is a questionable report of the wreck of eleven English and seventeen French gun-boats in a hurricane in the Pelho. China. The London Herald's Paris correspondent says that by the beginning of March France will possess an army of 450,000 men, ready to march in a few hours.

Congressional. Washington Jan. 22. --An hour was spent on the subject of correcting the journal of the Senate so as to show that the Senators from Mississippi, Alabama and Florida had withdrawn from the Senate. The motion to do so was laid on the table. The Crittenden resolutions were debated. Mr. Powell, of Kentucky, advocated their adoption. Mr. Wade, of Ohio followed, opposing any compromise. House.--The Crittenden resolution memorials from Delaware and Maryland were presented. Mr. Colfax's bill to suspend the mail service in the seceding States, was postponed until Thursday week. The majority report of the Committee of Thirty — Three was then taken up. Among others who spoke was Sherrard Clemens, of Virginia, who opened with great bitterness on the Secessionists, and at the expiration of his hour wished to continue, but Mr. Martin, of Virginia, objected to the gentleman's continuing his "traitorous remarks." Mr. Washburne of Wis. f
From Georgia. Milledgeville, Jan. 22. --A number of resolutions were offered and adopted to-day, one appointing a committee to enquire into the power of the Convention to reduce the number of the members of the Legislature; another, declaring that Georgia will demand her share of the public property, another, pledging the State to pay the carriers of the mail in future; and another, providing for the appointment of a Council of Safety. Six delegates entered their protest against the ordinance of secession, but pledged their lives, for times and honor in defence of the State against coercion. An ordinance was offered and referred, declaring all white males in the State at the time of secession to be citizens.

Naval resignations, &c. Washington, Jan. 22. --The Navy Department has received the resignation of Commander Farrall, who was attached to the Pensacola Navy-Yard, and among those who, in the name of Florida, demanded its surrender, and also that of Lieut. Kershaw, who ordered the flag of the Government to be hauled down. These resignations were accepted before the government knew of the action of these officers here stated. The resignation of Lieut.

The North Carolina Legislature. Raleigh, N. C., Jan. 22. --The call of a Convention in this State is more doubtful to-day on account of disagreement as to time. One party is for hasty action, while the other is for deliberate action. The Senate agrees on the 21st of February as the time for electing delegates, and this will probably be killed on the third reading. The House debated it to-day. North Carolina is conservative, but not submissive. Everybody is for secession if it becomes necessary.
