Collectors for Southern Ports.

--Northern papers inform us that Lincoln's Secretary of the Treasury has appointed George S. Dennison, from the neighborhood of New Orleans, as special agent and acting collector to open that port at the earliest practical period. We learn from the same source that ‘"collectors will be appointed for Beaufort, North Carolina, and Port Royal, South Carolina, as soon as proper persons can be selected. The object of the Secretary of the Treasury being to procure the services of those resident in the South, and who, in addition to efficiency, will be acceptable to all parties concerned."’
