The the Southern Commissioners.

--The Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun says:

‘ The Montgomery Commissioners, Messrs. Crawford and Forsyth, presented the subject of their mission to the Secretary of State two or three days ago. No answer had been given yesterday, but the Commissioners were informed that a reply would be sent very soon. Mr. Roman had not arrived yesterday, but was expected last night. He had been detained in Montgomery by indisposition.

’ The letter of the Commissioners is said to be brief, and to express a desire for amicable relations between the two Governments. It proposes to treat upon the subject of an equitable division of public debt and property. As the reply will be made in a day or two, it may be presumed that it will be furnished to the Senate. It is not expected that any proposition to enter into treaty stipulations will be entertained.
