From the Southern Capital.

Montgomery, Ala.,March 13.--The Congress will, it is believed, take a recess during this week.

Speaker Cobb has sent to the different States of the Confederation copies of the permanent Constitution. The Alabama Convention received it to-day, and will, it is expected, ratify it to-morrow.

[second Dispatch.]

The Tariff act is published. It goes into operation on the 1st of May. Compared with the United States tariff, most of the 30 per cent. duties are reduced to 25 per cent., a greater portion to 24 per cent., and the 19 per cent. duties are reduced to 15. There is a large 10 per cent. schedule, and a very small free list.

The Alabama Convention ratified the permanent Constitution by a vote of 87 to 5.-- Gen. Jamison, a leading co-operationist, took a bold position in favor of the ratification.

Jere Clemens is appointed Major General of the Alabama army.
