Special to New York Papers

NEW YORK, March 31. – No news in specials this morning.  The Times has the following:

Capt. Fox, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, has returned to-day from a visit to Fort Monroe.  He reports everything quiet there.  The population has increased lately at the Fort by persons drawn hither with a desire to witness the approaching duel between the Merrimac and Monitor, if the captain of the Merrimac will again venture a fight in Hampton Roads.

Instead of 3 mills per pound on printing paper, as proposed in the original Tax bill, the House agreed to a 3 per cent. ad valorem tax.

Water was yesterday let into the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, in its whole length.  Navigation will be immediately resumed.
