From Washington.

Washington, April 3.
--Minister Corwin has been tendered the sloop-of war Cumberland to take him to Mexico. He especially goes to make a treaty, which is a preliminary with the Administration.

Indications are that the diplomatic relations between Peru and the United States will shortly be resumed.

It is ascertained that the French Consuls in the Confederate States have received instructions direct from France, instead of through the Minister here, relative to the facilitation of Southern commerce with that empire.

Although no official notification of the coming of the French and English fleets has been received here, gentlemen in prominent positions are satisfied that their movements are in close connection with the observation of Southern political events.

The continued presence of Major McCullough in Richmond, viewed in conjunction with the call for a Secession Convention there on the 16th, excites much interest in Washington, especially in army circles.
