Late Northern news. From the late Yankee papers in our hands we continue to make up a summary of the news: Masters of the situation — what will be done with us. The Herald says: We are now masters of the situation. We have a magnificent army of 700,000 men, including an ordnance force which, if properly employed, will prove the justice of Napoleon's well known saying, that "Heaven is on the side of the heaviest artillery," and a cavalry corps of 50,000 men composed of as fine material as any in the world, the whole recently reorganized in respect to its field and line officers in a manner to render it equal to the emergencies of the most trying campaigns.--We have a navy which, in the number of vessels and sailors daily added to it, is rapidly advancing to the same state of strength and efficiency. Now, all that is wanted is energetic and vigorous action on the part of Congress to obtain from this immense development of military and naval strength the speedy result

icants for a few vacancies of minor importance in the Department is almost without a parallel. Senators and Members of the House are literally overrun with these office- seekers, besieging them at the doors of the Capital, their private quarters, or the streets, and it is said even on their way to church. The rush is simply occasioned by the passion for office, as the salaries are barely sufficient for a livelihood with the present high rates of living. A report from Richmond via Fortress Monroe states that General Beauregard left for Kentucky, taking with him fifteen thousand men, and that President Davis is to take command of the troops of Manassas in person after the inauguration on the 22d inst. It may be a consolation to the "onward to Richmond" people to know that during the past week one of our light batteries essayed an advance as an experiment, with a result that would probably be discouraging to Gen. Horace Greeley himself. Dr. F, C. Neale, of St. Marys coun

A dangerous crisis at hand. An officer from Cairo states that he visited Columbus lately under a flag of truce, and had an interview with Gen. Polk and others, who expressed a firm reliance upon aid from Great Britain at an early day. The Trent affair was their opportunity, but its conclusion is, as the London Times remarks, an omen of their defeat. The same officer mentions that a citizen of New Orleans and President of the New Orleans and Jackson Railroad, against whom sympathy with. Federal prisoners had been alleged, gave the opinion that the financial embarrassments of the Confederates and the necessity of reenlistments would produce a dangerous crisis in their affairs.

The Tribune says: It appears that certain parties were authorized to sell to the Government the New York and Savannah line of steamers, for which they were to have 2 per cent. brokerage on the gross amount of the sales. In the meantime Mr. Morgan purchased them for the department, for which he was paid by the same party 2 ½ per cent. The broker now comes forward and sues the owner of the steamer for his 2 per cent. The defendant claims that he is not bound to pay, and insists that he can establish the fact that a "ring" was formed to prevent the Government from getting the New York steamers except at an exorbitant price established by the ring.
