From Washington.

Washington, Jan. 11
--In the Executive session, Gen. Dix, of New York, was nominated Secretary of the Treasury, and was confirmed.

Great anxiety is felt about Seward's speech tomorrow, as it is believed it will be a fair exponent of Lincoln's views regarding the present state of affairs, and foreshadow his own case as Secretary of State.

Mr. Brown, editor of the Constitution, has received official notification of the withdrawal of Government advertisements from that paper. The supposed cause is his recent article on Secretary Holt.

Lieut. Talbot is reported to have arrived and held an interview with the President.

It is authoritatively stated that Mr. Holt will be appointed permanent Secretary of War.

The Interior and Post-Office Departments are still vacant.

The Mississippi delegation will withdraw from Congress to-morrow.
