Private adviccs from the South, received to night, in dicate that there will be a fight in less than thirty hours. The President declared to a member of Congress yes terday that he had no doubt that Fort Sumter would be attacked in iess than a week, when a fight would ensue Mid the war would commence. The Congressman inquired why he did not reinforce Major Anderson? The President replied, that there were not vessels enough in the Amcr toon navy to reach Fort Sumter. In the first place, they would have to enter in the day time, and move slowly In order to clcar tho old vessels that hare bceu punk in the channel a? barriers against any attempt of government ves sel? to enter the harbor. Thi* fact,it is assarted,would cause their sure destruction by the outer lighthouse batteries OB Mcrrie Island, and before encountering the fire of the Morris light beacon batteries, and Point Cummin's bat tcries, and the guns of Foi t Johnt jn on James Island and Fqrt Moultrie on b'ult'vairs Island, all of which they wmld huv?. to suffer befoie reaching F<irt uumt<sr. Be tides, Major Anderson could afford ro protection to a vet gel sgalust the outer bctteries of Morris Inland. Tbis Is the opinion of the authorities Laving the ixHvcr to send relief; but in justice to these who would have to execute the wo- k and riek their lives before the fire of (be teaef?i'icljts. I akii assured that tho h rbor Of Chariest m can be entered by light draft ?easels of war, and Major Anderson can be reinforced. There aro mon Jin the American nary who believe that the bwiaeaa of firing cannon is a psm ? that two can play a', and that as good a shot can hi- mode frem the deck o(an American shlp-of-war, as tram Morris 1 stand. Letters are nwelved from Tort Sumter a? l.iteas the 20th inrt, stating that all the officers and men are wall. While they would like some fn?h meit for a change, they are a unit in feeling Rfalnstsucotuhin^to the tei in' of the authorities of Charleston to supply thorn either by courtesy or to let them hare daily rations, which they can cat off at any moment. When the authorities will allow Major Anderson to contract for a quantity of supplies according to the usuk! practices, untrammelled by threats or any improper Influence, he will do so, a<ul not bef >re. Unless ho can do this the men prefer to confine themselves to the fare they now have, and of which they have ample s ipply.

Jefferson Davie will be Commander-in-Chief of the army, which will at once he raieod and organised. The BooUiern Congress having constituted an executive guvernment, will at once adopt provisionally the present federal constitution, and all laws not locally Inapplicable.

THE RELATIOFS OF THE SECEDING STATES WITH FOREIGN POWERS. WASsmuraM, .tun. 30, 1801. The present administration do not regard the speeoh of lord Pal men* ton as indicating either a disposition or in tention of the English government to reoognise the South ern c?.ufe<leiacy in tho event of a dissolution or separa tion of the two sections. No such deductions, it Is be lieved, can be made from the remarks alluded to. The lirltlsh Minister, I<ord I.yons, in his communica tion to the government respecting the views of thi ad ministration in the clearance of vessels to foreign ports, and the summary manner in whloh the Secretary of State disposed of that matter by Informing tho British Minister and other Ministers equally interested, that the government will not wcognise any clearanoe which does not emanate from federal authority, has teen communicated to her Majesty's government by Lord Lyons, which will donbtlofs settle the question of the recognizal of the secession or drjacto government by Great Britain and other E iropeau Powers.

At ten minutes past two o'clock this afternoon the Private Secretary of the 1 "resident announced to the United States Bouse of Representatives that tho name of James Buchanan had been appended to the bill admitting Kansas into the federal Union as a State. At twenty minutes of three Martin F. Conway, representative elect from the new State, received the lath of office and took his seat. He was Immediately congratulated by Mr. l'arrott, delegate front the Territory, whose power ceased where Mr. Conway's commenced, and by other members.

The Benat< Tariff Committee bare nearly perflated the Turin bill, which they buve ui tier consideration, and will probably report it to morrow. This bill I* a very impor Unit one, and It behcovos the Sew York lmp>rters, i alio b?ve large totcresta at make, to keep their eyo* I >m this bill. The merchants an yet seem to havet*ken no notice nf it. It If a matter of vital importance, and should be carefully examined In all its |*rts before it bo comes a law. There arc m.iuy fcuturos In it which, when they conn to be carried out, will render tue bill ridlsuKuu. rbo parlies who ore ongiaeeriug tbia biil hope to see ire Its jw sage ami tvo?l any comment or allusion to it through the political ex citemcnt now agitating the country. It ebould be Ihorourhl) ventilated. Bon. John Cochrane, today, In reporting a blU from lb** Heir. I Committee furthor to provide for the collec tion M the revenue, accompanied it with an expression < f hi* views. He fully concurred with tho President In the C'p;ni<>n Hgainst secossU^p; then-fore, all ac'a and ordi names o! secession so far as the same may be carried into effect, are to be considered as revolutionary infra: IIoub of the suprome law of the laud, however, tb?y may be remarked as the proper exercise of an Indefeasi ble right of resisting acta which are plainly unconstitu tional and too oppressive to be endured. He also concurs with th|B President thst the federal constitution has abstained from conferring on the federal government, * or aity department thoreof, authority to declare and wage an ippressive war agrlast a scc*ding felato in order to coerce or repeal any act of secession she may have passed, or to compel hor to rem&iu nominally. as well as In fact, a member of the federal Union. A Just conception of the constitutional authority of Congress combine* with ufcber, and, If possible, higher and more commanding motives, to prescribe other measures than aggressive aud coercive war to remedy the grave Inconveniences, perils and evils of such secession. In framing the bill there has been kept shadlly In view, flrst. the obstacles of every cha racter which oppose any attempt by the federal govern ment to coerce a State; aud, secondly, the principle on which, m is conceived, the whole coercive action of our revenue system his from its inception been fouudel. The bill provides that vesseli? from a foreign port bound to a port within Uic scope of its provision*) ihall, with Its foreign cargo, be liable to seizure ac<l condemnation; and, in tho name view, of applying Its restrictions only to foreign commeroe on wbtch revenue is by U? collected All Teasels lawfully cringed in the coastwise trade ate exempted from tie operation of Its purely remedial mid defensive operation?. It fur'her provides that when the revenue i tws are ob itnu teJ, and it becomes impracticable to oolkct Uie re venue, tho l"reei'!ent shall by proclnnnUkon specify the port in which the obstruction exists. VMBNms, Jan. 30,1861. I OoL Jnrfgr, tVmtuissloner from the Independent wtato i f Mab imii to the President of the T"nlt"d state*, srrived here this morning. n? comes to negotiate for the fed'* rsl property situated In that State, consisting of arsenals, custom houses, fcc. He will probably communicate to the President the object of his mission in a <Uy or 'wo. The sdmtnlstrstion will adopt the same policy In the caw of Alabama as of South Carolina, refusing to enter into negotiat ions rcspe< ting federal property. Despatches received by the government from our mln t"Hr? In Central and South America, stat that tho most intense anxiety exists aucng the people theie respecting events trtMptl tag in this country. Should the great re public. n government of the United States be destroyed by r- \ ? lutl"n, and civil war ensue, It will be ri garded In these countries n? a failure of the experiment of self gov ernmcnt, and Its downfall won'4 be deplored m the loss of their patron nnd best friend. The number of federal troops which arrived here la-1 nl|.bt Is etgbty. making in all lees thtn three hundred. These are dl\ IdeU Into three companlos of artillery and one of infantry. Arrar germ nts have been made for con centrating them at any particular point, In cane It Is ne cersary.to quell dk'turbancs of the public peace. Among Uie signers to a compromise petition presented by Judge Nlblack, of Indiana, were the names of upwards ??f seventy former neighbors of Mr. Lincoln. A delegation of thirty-three, representing fifty thou a id worklnpmen of Philadelphia, this morning watted on Senators Orlttetnlen and Oam< roo at their r*?pecttvs rrskl- nces. They were Introd iced by Senator Bigler in a brief and appropriate address. J. B.' Xicholeoa re ponded f'rthe del< gat ion eloquently and patriotically. r|e stated th ' object of the vl?.t to be k> testify to the pprTUtlOT of t.hc f'nkm by tb"rr elves and thwe they i pti ssnt"d, desire fbr a setti-'irer? of err national Mfllv Ities op a satlrfactory bas'.s, and that the priposi t'."v of the '?'enstor from Kentucky, wives character they revered, whose patriot! m they ad I red, was hear tily endorsed by thou, ud hat they wwLed its adoption urged and secured. The Si nators feelingly and hopefully responded. The Committee of W rkingmen of PhMadolphte are highly jratified with the reeult af their rM hare. Their operations have been altogether outside of polities, and their petitions ta th Semite aud House fur * oompromlse ware presented by member* entertain lag dMhrsat party views? tn the Benale by Mr. Bigler, democrat, and In the House by Mr. Veree, republican. They U*vo called upon members of the Pennsylvania delegation, and from each received warm assurances that no eflorts will be spared to ?Act a compromise npon th* basts of the Crittenden proposition*. The committee go to Hsrrisburg to-mor row morning, by Invitation of members of the Pennsyl T*nla Legislature. They represent a numerous and In fluential class of people, and their visit to Washington La* had a beneficial effect upon their public servants of all parties. A distinguished republican official of Pennsylvania writes from Barrieburg, under dale of the 2Mb lost., as follows:? We are mu-h divided here: and while our party are in diffrate, public opinion is running strongly In favor of some compromise of existing tioubles. I think the Bouse will eoncnr with the Senate tn agreeing to ssnd del. gates to the Convention of February 4. Oov. Curtln will give It his hearty assent, and appoiut good mon. Acting Postmaster General King has receive 1 com pis lots from Northern gentlemen that their letters from I he South have been viols ted ? One writes that siz Jot ters addressed to him by a lady in Mobile, and not on po litical subjects, have evidently been opened by unau thorized parties. The Department has promptly insti tuted an Investigation. A private despatch received here from Tennessee, states that commissioners have been appointed by the I egleiatnre of that State, to meet the border State Com missioners at Washington. This is said to be a Union triumph, as ten of tbe twelve Commissioners appointed sre Known certainly to be in favor of Union. The President has determined to name Mr. Greenwood, the present Commissioner of Indian Affairs, to the Senate as Secretary of the Interior. The statement that George F. Briggs had been appoint, cd to the Liverpool Consulate Is untrue. Most of the Western members of Congress are astlvely favoring the proposition to remove the doty on sugar, but as the government oannot afford to lose the revenue, which, for the last four years, has averaged eight mil lion dollars, It te not probable that the Committee of Ways and Means will report in favor of the proposition. The Deficiency bill was not oonsidered today, as many of the members desired to see the Senate amendments in print. It will be takes up to-morrow. Persons just arrived direct from the closet of the Pre sidect elcct, put the seal of positive denial upon the re port that he has advised concession to the South. I am assured, by private despatches from Springfield, Illinois, to day, that Mr. Lincoln will not arrive here until Home days alter the counting of the Presidential vote by the two bouses. lie has received invitations from tho Executives of tho States of Indiana, Ohio, Kew York and Pennsylvania, and will respond to them by visiting Indi anapolis, Columbus and Albany, and en route to Wash ington will probably be met by Governor Curtln and Coun :il at Philadelphia, as it would be considerably off the route for the President elect to go to Harrisbutg. Tbero Is some talk among the military in Baltimore of rseeivtag Mr.. Lincoln as their future Commander in Chief, as they did Mr. Pierce. This would be especially appropriate, inasmuch a* so much has l>o<>n said about the existence In Baltimore of a sceret organiiAt'.on to prevent his Inauguration. lion.

The result of to-day's proceed - i Inge haa pruned the truth of this prediction. After the breaking op of the meeting last evening, the i abolitionists, instad of going to the hotels ,skulked about ! town and took refuge in the private reaidenoes of their | Jerry move sympathisers. I Ihe oity was quiet until about ten o'clock, this morn ing. At that time th> agitators took advantage of the | temporary lull of the ncttemeot caused by the aamirance [ which had been given that no further attempts would be nuMle to hold an aboUt>oa meeting, and, suddenly, in ac cordance with the arrangements of a caucus In a seven by nine doctor's office, made their appsaiaaua at Osoven tien Hall, under the protection of a very considerable delegation of enthusiastic Iribun* republicans. An organisation was offlscted, Rev. M. E. Streiby pre siding, anil Jatues Fuller and R. W. 1'c.ujc acting us secretaries. The Chairman disclaimed sympathy with be extremo doctrines of the radical abolitionists, but Intimated that he and his friends worn bound to protect Busan B. Anthony, and her associates, in the exercise <f the glorious right of freedom of speech, to abu. e everybody and denounce the Bible and the constitution of their country. For a time the abolition and Greeley agitators had everything their own way, very boldly denounced p?< - plo who wore not present to hear them, and were pre paring to pass a series of caucus resolutions

in relation to the really impending crisis In the cause of abolitionism In the Salt City. It was soon, however, noised abroad that the ball was again occupied, and in a very nhort time U was filled and surrounded by a crowd of people, equal la numbers, respectability and spirit to that of yesterday. By thic time Mr. Luke McKlnney was endeavoring to offer an amendment to the resolutions before the meet ing, and the excitement waa neatly at fever beat. Son# objection was raised by the abolitionists, when Mr? McKlnney insisted upon his right of freedom of speech guaranteed him under the constitution. Rev. Mr. May hero entered the halTand took bis seat upon the platform. Bo was soon followed by Miss Susan B. Anthony, with a copy of the Syracuse CvurU/ and I Vniun in her embrace, and an expression of bitterness ' and of determined revenge fur th? disturbance of ycetor ; day in ber oouatenance. Mr. Powell, one of Susan's trtvelllpg compauions, at tempted to speak to the original resolutions, without 1 permitting tbe amendment to be oons(dereJ. Ho said be appeared before them as an abolitionist, and as Ruoh pronounced slavery a sin against Cod, the crime of crimes, and desired it abolished immediately, uncondi tionally and forever. Much excitement ensued, followed ! by a bun m of hisses. Rev.

(Great applawe.) While Mr. McKlnney waa speaking he complained of nolae and confusion on the plaUorm, ohargiug tbst the chairman waa engaged In tho disturbance. A motion was made to appoint another chairman whe would maintain order on the platform. (Unbounded applause end laughter.) Mr. McKlnney said If the meeting was golhg to appoint a new chairman he would not proceed till it was done. (Shout* of laughter.) Hero some one threw an egg, probably intended for an otyect, on the platform, but it fel wide of its mark, and exploded its shell upon the auricular appendage of one of the police officer*. The oSoera endeavored to discover the perpetrator, and a ?en* of the wildest coo fusion ensued, in which ruahtog and poahiag ahnwed where the "irre preselble conflict" was the thickest, interspersed with oeoaatonal muafc- from an unfortunate dog. From this time forward all was confusion worse confounded, the chairman whs hissed, Mr. PoweU was hissed and drnaugoed as a traitor, whose iangosge w ould not be any longer tolerated. Men jomped upon the platform and took it by storm. All eflbrta of the Chief of Polioe and his aids to reatore order were unavailing, and in this state of things it wsa impossible to hear a syllable uttered by any one, and the abolitionists sought refuge outside the hall. Several patriotic Union speeches were mad* and the meeting continued until Mr. Oobb? the proprietor of tho building, gave satlafnctory assur ance that the hall would not again be open for the aboli tionists, when, with threo cheers for the Union and the constitution, an adjournment waa had, and the crowd quietly dispersed. Thus endod the attempt to heap disgrace upon this city by another convention of these itinerant abolition ists. 11m result is being celebrated with bonfires and a large procession of eitixens, headed by a band of music, bearing in their midat effigies, one representing Rov. S. J. May and the other Suaan B. Anthony. Both were placarded with their respective names in large letters, with the inscription " Squelched." In the pro cession wer* borne transparencies, on which were painted the following mottoe:?'" The Jerry rescuers played oat ,'. "The rights of the South muat be protected,'' "Freedom cf speech, but not of treason,' ?'Aboiltieniam no longer in Syracuse."

The procession a#aln took up its lino of march to the City Ballpark, where after renewed chetrsfor tho Union the crowd quietly dispersed, evi dently well sat tailed with their day's work.
