Secession of Tennessee and Arkansas.

In the absence of more detailed information relative to the secession of Tennessee, we copy the following telegraphic dispatch:

Nashville,May 7.--the proceedings of the Tennessee Legislature have just been made public. An Ordinance of Secession and alliance with the Confederate States has been passed, subject to the vote of the people on the 8th of June.

Fifty-five thousand troops are called for, and $2,000,000 are appropriated unconditionally and $3,000,000 conditionally.

’ A dispatch via Louisville says that the Secession Ordinance of Arkansas passed by a vote of 69 to 1!
