From Washington.

Washington, April 8.
--Alexander Duval is appointed Collector of Customs at Richmond.

The State Department replied to-day to the Confederate Commissioners, declining to receive them officially, but expressing deference for them as gentlemen. The Secretary indicated a peaceful policy on the part of the Government, declaring a purpose only to defend when assailed. The Commissioners' reply was of such a character as to require a continuation of the correspondence. It is not known when the Commissioners will leave — not, however, for some days.
