As Congressmen arrive. It is quite evident that they come laden with the Indignation which the people fee) toward Mr. Johnson, and It Is also made dear by these indications that tbe people have advanced grca-ly since the election. Whether there will lx* an attempt at impeachment or not. It seems certain that those nowhere are deter mined to ec strip Andrew Johnson of power as to make him powerless for barm.

TUE COSqCXUED STATES. The subject of Ignoring the present State Gov ernments, unless the rebels show less obstinacy and defiance is rapidly gaining ground. General Grant's position that unless they adopt the amend ment they may go farther and do worse, seems to be the real la-y to the situation. The statement of General Giant to leading rebels that they were diverted of all rights, and Congress atone conld rt-sio-e them, is a sufficient indication of the strcr.gth and direction ol the political cur rent, xxw v o«*rjr ASTTBS.

General Grant bos been lets reticent of late on tbe subject of reconstruction with ex-rebels. He plainly tola them that they mistook their position. They had openly made war opon tbe Government and appealed to arm, and had been defeated, and that they were now nothing more nor less than on tbclr parole. The rights that they talked about bad been forfaited by their treason, and their re turn to tbclr former positions tn the Government laid in the hands of the Government through Its Congress; that If the; persisted in rejecting the Constitutional Amendments they would only have to go farther and fare worse. - TUX WOOL THADE.

Tbe bets presented will bo of especial lntercst,ln view of the fall In ibe price* of woollen goods. Some of the large mills la tho country hare stopped entirely of late, and others are ran* nlng on short time, because wool now costs more than the manufactured goods sell for. The figures complied in the Treasury upon the subject show that t£la glut U owing to the increased Import of woollen goods In itCC over 13-15, the Imports last year being rained at about twenty-six millions. while this year they have exceeded sixty-seven millions. -4,.

VIEWS OF COXRHES9ICEK. So far as the views of Congressmen present can i>o ascertained, there seems to be a disposi tion to giro the rebel States a reasonable time to show the course they determined to pursue re garding the Amendment, and If after that they reject it, to legislate regarding them as if they were Territories. thanwgitixo.

The session 01 the same committee and their acts are secret, bat it has transpired that cotton to the value fof somewhere in the neighborhood of S&X),OOO,OUOhdd been seized by the Government, and that probably not a tenth of tbe amoont realised has accrued to the Govern* meet. At New Orleans one transaction, oat of about lP,out)or 12,000 bales of cotton seizM, tbe Government cot only about 1.200 bales. One of the modes ot swindling the Government was to present torged certificates or oaths of ownership after tbe cotton bad been seized, and Treasury agents would release the cotton thus claimed, or tnrn over the proceeds from Us sale, under authority of Treasury regulations. A great ma jority «»t the snlndW were made in this manner. The committee will dou Hess insist that, baling once taken possession of the cotton, the Treasury Department haa no authority to relin quish it, unless the claims ariMnc therefrom were regularly adjudicated bv tbe courts. Tbe Gov ernment is not likely to find this cotton specula tion a paying business, as the amount realized, aflerajl the claims have subsided, will be eaten np by tbe expenses Incurred in the seizure, re tention, sale and liquidation.

This revenue. It is believed, ex ceeds in amount that of any other nation on the globe for the same period. The expenditures dmlng the same period were as follows: Civil, foreign and miscellaneous, *41,049,905.90; pensions at# Indiana, SlC,‘-M,ajn.4t; was, I interest, f153,u71,‘37.27; loti, Total receipts, 555C.039.1K.06.

Tbe total amount of United States legal tender notea in circulation la, there fore, *380,000,000. The most important and gratifying part of the report will be on tbe redaction ot the pablic debt. It will ne shown that tbe pablic debt ban been re duced, during the past twelve months, tally fSOO.CuI.U 0. The actual figures of the redaction are *133,027.721. Seven millions of compound Interest notes, le gal tender for tbeir free, have been cancelled, and temporary loans reduced nine millions. The fall amount of currency authorized for National Banks haa been leaned, which, with the United Stales notes, gives a circulating medium of near'y t7Ui,OU\IOC, notlnclading the fractional currency. On tbe Ist of last November, the lo’al, Including the fmctimal currency, amounted to *731.218,033.90 and f‘.C,MXJ.tmO of authorized National Bank cotea remained unissued. The Secretary of the Treasury will not present a new plan for returning to specie payments. He hasebanged none of the view* be maintained in bis last report. He believes tbo Secretary of the Trcasnry should have power to control tbe cmreocy to the extent of being aa'hortzcd at his disctuQon to tell bonds bearing Interest not ex ceeding—per cent, and redeemable and pay able at such periods as may be conducive to tne interests of the Government, tar tbe purpose of retiring ad United States bonds. Uc will ask Congress to authorize a long five per cent bond, to lie exempt from taxation, with which to fund tbe obligations that are soon to mtiure. lie will lay great stress on the question ol urging Congress to adopt, at an early day, a Dim policy of contraction, which, when adopted, will cause the business of the country to gsavitate to a specie basts, which can be reached without a great diminution of the revenues or a wide-spread financial panic. He does not propose to state any definite term for the resumption of specie payment, but believe* that with a proper system It can be attained with the retirement of over two hundred mMliona of United States note*. U will be shown that the Government is on a high road of prosperity to reducing the national debt, and tbe Treasury will cling to the simple and experienced policy of liquidating tbe debt by keeping the national revenue above tbo na tional expenditures. To this end a draft of a bill, prepared by Mr. Wells, Special Revenue Com missioner, will bo submitted, proposing an equalization in internal taxation, and a modifica tion of tbe existing tariff. Important reterence will also be made to (be raw cotton tax of three cents per pound, imposed last session. In 16C7 and 18CS, *830,000,000 of 7-30 s tali due. A large amount of the first series arc now being funded in 5-90 bonds. Improvements in the national banking system will be suggested and adopted. ANomm statement. Wabbiboton, November 80.—The statement which is being generally published, purporting to be an abstract of the report of the Secretary of tho Treasury, is made tin mainly from official statear.cDtß heretofore published, and so far ask is confined to these Is, doubtless, lo Ibe main, correct. Other portions of the statement how ever. are mere speculation, and generally grossly incorrect. The estimated receipts of revenue for the next fiscal year. Instead of being $309,000,000, ere really less than <130,000,000. The Secretary will not recommend the Issue of long five per cent bonds, as atated, and will indicate the time atvhicb, in his judgment, the resumption of specie payments can be safety enected. It is hi* opinion that this may be done In eighteen months, but be hopes tho cfrcumvtnnces of the country will be such as to warrant a tcenmptlou at ah earlier date. New Yoke, November SO.—A (special from Washington to the ibaf snys: Acting Comptrol ler Hubbard. in bis annual report, will recom mend an increase of currency of£3,UtJO,UOO, and it is reported that Secretary McCulloch will make a similar rccomtncndaTon. [Special Despatch lo the Chicago Tribune.] Washington, November 33. The annual report of ilou.J. J. W. TTber, the Fourth Auditor of the Treasury Department, gives avery succinct and Interacting account of’ba operations of this bureau. The accounts w Mcb It Is his duty to adjust and settle belong exclusively to the navy, and comprise those of paymasters, navy agents, navy storekeepers and the dlstriou turn of all prize money, the regi-try aud disburse ment ol allotments, the arrears of pay, from what ever cause of officers and meu in the naval ser vice, the payment ot naval bounties, naval pen sions, the pay of marines, and for other miscel laneous duties of lesser Impottancc. Daring the last fiscal year the number of credit requisitions Issued were 8,840, amounting to 143,K53,&H.b3. The number of cash relntdlng requisitions were 7U7. amounting to The amount of Internal revenue tax ciediu-d to that bond and parsed over to the Commissioners of Internal itavenue, was $10,7(4,989. The correspondence of this Bureau, which is an index of the work done, has greatly increased duilng the year, and numbered. a,S3d, being an increase of nearly five thousand over the number written (he previous year. Special at tention has been paid to the section of the In ternal Revenue 1-awa, which requires that every poison prosecuting claims before any of the Ex ecutive Departments ot tUc Government, shall take out a license as a claim ageut, and. In obedience lo tho* law, referred to, four hundred and ninety-eight com missions have been received ami died. It baa been the practice to bind into volumes all letters • revived Ly this office, aud the audiljt auuouncoa that tbv number of theso volume* has now reach ed IMP, and contain the correspondence in an nu uiclan teties from the eevcntceutu of September, jTiU, down to the preseat date. The auditor, states that the same ease, promptitude end cor reduces which hashvralotorvbeen bestowed upon tbv cirinbutlon ol prize money, ha# been unre mlltlncly continued during the naalyvar. Not wtlhtiauding the termination oi the war, thla branch ot business will yet require a considerable period .to bring It to a coiidueioii. Many prize cases still wait for adjudication, and many more have not yet been fully paid, owing to too tardiness ot claim ants and other causes independent of the office. The total number of claim* received and settled during the fiscal year was 19,408, amounting in value lo tS,t»W,9iiu.3o. The operations of the office In regard to the marine corps, navy pen sions. navy agents, aud naval storekeepers re .elding in foreign countries, were, total number of accounts settled, Sbd, embracing 6,9u0 minor ac counts, and involving the expenditure of yI..U).iTRsi. Owing to the great di minution of the naval force of the counttv since Ibe Auditor's la*t annual report, the nninhvr of allo mcats Las greatly dlmici-heJ.

The General Agent of ibis new association Is .Mr. D. ii. Craig, who has lor fifteen yeats part been the General Agent of the Sew York Associated Press. It was our purpose to receive and publish the despatches of both those associations In pursu ance of the usual enterprise of the American in furnishing its readers with the fullest and laatest intelligence from all parts of the world. The Sew Yoik Associated Press has, however. Issued an order prohibitive any paper Irom receiving their news which shall elect to publish that forwarded by Mr. Craig; also knowing from* long ex perience in the telegraph business that Air.

We have always heretofore acted independently of all combinations, and shall continue so to art, regardless of what the consequences may t>o W e have, however, full confidence that the United States and European Telegraphic News Associa tion will be able to famish fuller, more varied and more satisfactory reports of news foreign, domestic and commercial—than the Associated Press haa ever attempted, and that the traders cf the Amrrtoan will be benefited by the change.
