The New Congress Hall.

--The work of preparing a suitable hall for the deliberations of the Confederate Congress is progressing at the Capitol. The former Senate chamber, lobby, and Clerk's office, have been transformed into one large apartment by the removal of the walls and galleries, and the work will be finished up with due regard to neatness and comfort. We are informed that the hall will be decorated with suitable upholstery, and the floor covered with a handsome carpet. The members may congratulate themselves upon the prospect of a place where they can enjoy their otium cum dignitate undisturbed by the presence of abolition orators and (we hope) small-beer politicians.
