Aanngthe amusing incident? marking current political history, tnay jastly be classed the effort? of Kossuth and his co labor ng ref ogees in Eng'and, to aako a vory great public man ou> of Mr Geo. Sanders, ex < onsnl to London, whose chief j Tactical j achievement*. as far as the public have the j means of knowing, are the cxootlent dinners he is crcuited with giving, from time to time, to those parties who seem so bent on puffing him into political notoriety. With all due respect to Mr. Anders, no;hing can be more rkfionloui than their efforts to make him, as clever as he is in the Southern senso of the term, a aan of importance in American public affairs Kos suth is the rcgu ur London correspondent of ue :,ew York V? iy Tvmei, and raroly writes 1 'lli#l Jourii^i without cmbraoingin hisletter . ^ino puff of Mr. Sanders, which r?ads lidicu |?ua. to those who know thML ^eniieman s polit ical antecedents miw position at home. The rettof the Kossuth gaoc are evidently simi larly engjged through the Columns of the En g.ish papcjs. It looks as though they must be encouraged in the work by Mr. S himself from Ins late letter to the authorities of the Stffea Republic, volunteering to them hie ad v.ce with reference to their duty to the neat f refugees within their limits, who, for man years p^t, have kept them in hot water bv r fevering effort* to embroil Swit?r .and with neighboring Governments. That memorable letter was written ia a tone which created in the minds of those (in ISurope) wh(, did not know better, the momentary iuipre* "?? ">? M'- ?? acting for ? e Uavernmont of the United Sta'es, in thu? vol ontfeenng hi, .drcoo to :ha 8wi?Govoma.on. As a mutter ot course, that advice was, thai tho hali-crjzy views of Kossuth & Co. should be carried out. Indeed, the letter reads a* j though Kussouth, or Louie Blano, or some other f the demented and bedeviled band bad guided j tae hand of Mr. Sanders in tracing its sen tcucej. Acid such as that made it ihe imper ative duty oi tho ieuaieuf the United States |> reject the noininatit r? of Air. Sanders, un less willing to have the United States embroiled ia the uiaicultics ot oth.-rr Powers, by the un authorised aid imprudent int rferenca ox an otiietr oi our Government in matters wholly foreign o the legitimate duties he was son; abroad to discharge. In truth, his cour o as c nsul at London was in fair keeping with the course of the Democratic Review during the short time it i.ooii him io smash that concern up by h;s violent assaults upon ali :ho time n^nortd lathers uf tne Democratic party. It be remembered, by-the-by, that the lato ihoiuao i>evm Rielly was the r*al author of the erratic papers, by publishing and thu.? lathering which Mr. Sanders so scon de stroyed the Rev:*iv. Except the letter to the Swiss Government and tho equally mataju rvpos letter to the New York II raid, over hi, own name, wherein he dictated the proper course of tho Government of the United states wi ll reffcronco to the future labors of Kossuth & Co, ihe appearanco of which J\>rcr.d the t-o Senate to uecree kis suporscuiure from the Londun consulship* Mr. danders is wholly. ULsnown to lame as a (.oliticiil writer. Wo are iriduced to make ihis piain state ment of lacte by the appearance of the follow ing paragraphs, in a recent le;ter to tho New iork Ti/.i- j,lrom Kossuth's impudent pen Mr. Sanders thinks ci going home on the 1st cr November. lie is preparing to take a very active part in tho struggles of ihe day, ar.U it L not unlikely that those who con trive;! to deprive him of bis post In London w.ll have reasons to repent the success of >.neir contrivance \\ i.hout entering into the <ine of policy to ue embraced by^our late Consul, I uavc great pleasure and thetieii au ihority for stating the loiiowing : ?'?Europe has proved the touchstone of American Democracy among oar diplomats an.t politicians, and it is unju-t to George San ders io associate him, ts n, still done, w;f^ Jung* Douglas, at least since the latter visaed Ljnuon, where he cuuld not find Kossuth and St. Petersburg where the"Czar f0und 'hirn. >anders has be. n as faithful to Democracy in Europe m at Lome, while the Jud?o, who was 'u a 8rettt moaoure tupjK.rted hy Samlers on account ol biz then apparently warm devotion ?o the liberal ?suse ut Europe, proved, on trial, only Lortman the First in hie flexible admiration (-fthe rt-ussian Emperor, ro soon as he hau frit toe bl m^ishmeois ot a royal nod zanders, ih? tlioruugn American liepublica^i caunot be the supporter of tne pro-Russian Douglas.' " laore is fun in this paragraph?rich fun, indeed. hy K. announce^ ?? by authority' the intentions of Mr. Sunders, as though they aro of as much importance to the i'utore cf the world. &e an ukase ot Nicholas, or a decree of Louio Ixapoieou. proolaiming the end of the Eastern war, would be ' Judge Douglas must be in a bad way, poor fellow, to be thus un ceremoniously deserted by Mr Sanders. Now, in sober earnest, it strikes ub thai if Mr 3. had thus publicly washed his hands of the Judge about three monthB before tho meeting of the la?t Dsltimore National Democratic Convention, carrying off wi h him all the fiahy and nnkey Democrats notorious for seek ing special favors at the hands of Congress, the Jutlgc woul l have been the nominee of the party" f>r tho last presidential riice. It is weil k iowu to those behind the curtain, that tho evident determination of thar class of politicians, most of them fresh from the Taylor ranks, to use him, if possible, to carry through their schemes on the Treas ury, defeated hie prospects The econo mists of the party turned their backs on him in the Convention, only because these par ies insisted upon standing in the front rank of his supporters The Judge and his reliable and valuable frien-Js knew well what oau-?id the defeat of .his nomination, and did their boat to disconnect him from tho iinputa tatiou ot each oniociatioua- They publicly and privately disclaimed all sympathy with those disinterested gontleoion, but to no pur* po?e; the time for such action on their party having pasted before they discovered that he wic likely to be hell responsible for tluir vagiries of all sorts in pubiifraff lira Judge Douglas is indeed to be congratulated if he manages to rid himself of future imputations of responsibility for what they may do in con nection with American parties. Laborin the Executive Departments.?Yes terday. in explaining the highly satisfactory condition of the business of the Pension Bu reau. wc took occasion briefly to remark that the business of nearly a'l the Jlffi.-ront gov ernment offices ia this city was up to the cur rent, demands upon them ^Ve havo now to say. in addition to that fact, that in the past year the business requiring to le done by them has increaeod in each from twenty to thirty per centum uj>ou the business they hai to -nty :!je year hefure 'J his jj tho result of the immense? spring-fo; ward whrch nil the groat interests agricultural, mechanical, com mercial, manufacturing, mining, Ac., have taken within the past year, aided, of o?Vip{ by the nsual heavy increase of our popula uon. Not a single additional bushel of wheat, or bal? of eotton goods, or box of friction matches, is exported, and not a single ad ditional ?ail-boat of ten tons is built anywhere in the United S'ates. without imperceptibly in creasing the amount of labor to he performed in the government departments at Washington. Congress has. of late, been exceedingly unwill ing to allow an increase of clcrical forcein any burouu; which has, in turn, compelled those responsible for their management to study closely how thsir method? of transacting busi ness. fcah bo improved, until mlittofB have come to go on like clock-w.-rk here. There nfeVer before was a time when a!l the em ployes of the Government in Washington were k ept so steadily employed, and when it was so utterly impossible for any to shirk work Kegistera aro kept in every offioe of the amount of bU8ine*s of work dune by each- {,? ir^ em ployes, and when one is found to lag be hind in the discharge of the duties for which ho receives pay from the Government, be he whom he may, he is promptly notified thai his dereliction has come under the cogniran^e of hi?# chief, and that its f*?at',fcion will surely cause him th* toss of hi* office. xhja xratmng is noto invariably followed by his removal in case \i proves insufficient to spur him up to the pruper discharge of his duties. An Interesting ?et of Tables.?We under stand that tho Secretary of the Treasury is causing to be prepared a comparative state ment of the working of the tariff of 1846, of tho operation of tho rates under the bill as prepared and reported by the Committeo of Ways and Means, and under tho provisions (chnngos of the existing law) which ka reeom ! mended in lieu of tho. e reported ae above mentioned. The importations ot each article for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1853, and, again, the average annual importations for the siz years ending on that aato, are taken as the basis of the?e interesting calculations. This is doing tho work thoroughly, and will afford Congress, at the next session, an oppor tunity to act upon the proposition to alter the rates of duties ?ith better light before their e;?es than over before. The task, however, turns out to be an herculcan labor. J he Columbas Bank Defalcation.?It is un derstood ar the Treasury Department that the Government's suit against the City Bank of Columbus, Ohio, is now undergoing a final trial at Columbus, Ohio, before the United States District Court. The claim is for '$U/O,0OG deposited with that bank, under one of Mr. Secretary Corwin's transfer drafts,' which are held by the present authorities of the Treasury Department to have been illegal. A Resignation from the Marine Corps.?We learn on the Avenue, that Brevet Major Archibald II. Gillespie, of the Marine corps, has resigned, llis resignation is said to have growu out of his difficulty with the ward-room (mesa) officers of the Independence, which re cently got into the New York newspapers, over the signature of the latter. A Yistake. ?The United States have not directed a prosecution undorthe Sub-Treasury !aw to be commenced against Mr. Jacob Al ricks late Collector of the Customs at Wil mington, Dol., as alleged by many persons in Washington.
