DECEMBER IX 1851 Congreas, The senate has been and is yet engaged in discuyeing the Kossuth resolutions, and in bilking about the corn promise...two subjects. of all others, that wine 'Mould be the,lact to be introduced there. The latter the people hate decided. is their pripiary capacity, to be a final set tlement of the questions involved. So let them be.— The former. our simple understanding teaches us. is for eign to the duties of that body. Kossuth - comes, among uses as exile, and is receiving a welcome from the peo ple.' That is right. but let die Senate mined ita l wn bu siness. In the llinum, not much has been accomplisheit except the arrangement of the committees, end the other duties iacideitt to the opening of a new C o ngress. We pre. earns the llollithiya will be 'over bactre the members will go 6 work. • Arrival of Kossuth. The Hungarian leader, Kossuth% and his snile. arrived In New York on the sth. in the Ilusuleoldi; and ever sines ear eastern ezehenges have been filled with the detail* of hie reception and movement*, and with high Fraught eulogise of his •ppearance, oratory. patriotism. etc., etc.. which, if we attempted to copy, or even give a sTnopsia of. would fill our paper to the exclusion of every thing else. The people. the newvpapers, sod we almeet said Con gress too. appear to have gone Kossuth mud. . They, will Mom apace, however. we think. There is always calm after a storm, and Kossuth himself is taking the proper coarse to alliy the excitement. The telegraph tells us that President Fillmore's see and private Sense tary, sailed upon Kossuth at the Irving House. and said that his father. the President. would. hapless'd to see and welcome him at the seat of Government. and that he desired to know alien it - was his intention to be in. Washington. Kossuth replied that his movements were somewhat uncertain, and that'll was somewhat doubtful whether be should go to , Washington, at all—the action of the Senate was far fromlbeing agreeable, and eircum etaadss would govern his future action with regard to his visiting Washington and other places. We du waken:nit what others may think, but it strikes us as in a very bad taste for a person in Kossath's situation falling back ou° his dignity, and rejecting the invitation of the Chief Hag istrate. because As did not like the action of Congress, IT Wait i Paorsurr.—lt will bo recollected that Mr. ideredith, when Secretary of the Treasury in 1849, nru pbasyed that iosteid of the tardy yielding enough to !nest the - expenses of Government. we should be compelled to make a new loan of about 16 millions of dollars. But what are the fact.--instead of as increased debt, the lia bilities of she United States has. daring the last fiscal year, (ending June 3064 and since, been gradually re. qaced by mean enu.tois of dollars. The process of re. t iduetien was by the purchase et U. S. Itellrititl at a low Irate. during mensentary depressions of the stock market. Some U.
