The Rump Congress.
Congress has adjourned. Tlio telegaph
so announces, and therein the wires hay
communicated, lo llie whole country the
most welcome intelligence of the year.
This Congress Is emphatically rump
affair, and of so mangy a chnructer, thai
ihe loot of every honest mania inconti
nently raited td Lick il out of the war..
The history cfituch bodies may be
searched in vain foi its parallel in extrav
agance, corruption, profligtcy and imbe
cility ; The country is burdened with ao
onoimous debt, and tho people oppressed
wilh excessive taxes, yet ll.is Congress
squandered money, prjd added to ihe
publio burdens, as if there was no debt'
nnd no taxes, and no bottom to the
people's purses. The Radical members
will be apt, -however, to discover thai
there is a limit to llie people's ' patience,
and thai revolt against oppression la a
natural trail of the American character,
Not only has Congress bonn profligate,
quftnde!n" the publio money, and nd
ding add! ional burdens pn the backs of
the people already -heavily oppressed by
taxes, but 4t ha endeavored lo take po'i
Heal power from the people and add lo
that of the Government. A cotcmporary
well says, that "faster than Europe is
ridding itself of he.ljrnnnies, wrongs and
oppression)! of centnriet, our Congress
has been taking (hem np, and attempting
to fasten (hem permanently upon tho
country at its settled institutions." It
has been niraing to make tho Government
every thing and the people nothing to
b,uild up srislocratio classes to rule and
govern the musses of the people nnd to
mrko llie people feel, through its revenue
officers, its excises, stamps and ItStes, that
the Federal Government is bot behir,d any
despotic European Government in the
power of its internal mnceinery, for reach-
