We have received the report of the Secretary of the treasury, and give It at length in our columns. It will richly repay a careful perusal. It ignot often that a document so able aa thU has emanated from the Treasury Department. The first thing alluded to if the pub'ic debt, and being a subject of vital impoitance, it has occupied the attention of the Secretary at length.

These items wero standing agnlasi the government then, and they are now ? they are, however, of a very tufting amount. It appears that the whole amount of interest paid by tha govern ment, *!nce| its formation on the pa^lic debt, makes the enormous sum of (167.629.960 60 Total amount of principal paid 267,462,083 24 Amount of principal and interest paid,.. $416,092,033 93 There has been received in the came time a revenue o about five hundred millions of dollars, principally darlvi d from customs,duties on tonnage,and sales of public lands, direct taxes,or excisc,having only been enforced from 1792 to 1802, and from 1813 to 1817?the latter period being on account ol the war. This gives us some idea of the im mense resources of Ihe government and the people, while it is suttttfient to establish and confirm confidence in our public credit Tho Secretary of the Treasury alludes to the position of the delinquent States in connection wifh the credit of the Oeneral Oovernment. Those who are ac quainted with our form of government, know thatthfre is not tka slightest connection between the different states and Ihe general government; but there are many living abroad cot so intimately acquainted with the na ture of our institutions, who have lost all confidence in the general government, in conseqnence of the repndia tion of aomu of the States, thinking the whole is as closely cocnectt'd aa the counties constituting the kingdom of Great Britain. This belief has a tendency to icjure the credit of cur govurnmcnt in foreign countries, which, however, much to be regretted, can have very little influ ence on our fi tancial affairs. Mr. Secretary Bibb suggest tha establishment ot a sinking fund, not only for tho purpose of extinguishing the debt of the government, but to ensure tho safety of the surplus revenue, and to reduce the interest on the d< bt. The depoaites ore now used by the banks sclectid for tho keeping oftheso funds, for whatever they moy deem proper, without allowing tha government the smallest per ccnt interest, while tho Interest on the debt nmounts, in a short time, to a very largo sum. A sinking fund, increased at the rate of about two millions per an num, which could easily bo carried into iffjet, with the present large surplus, would, in a short time, annually proiuce nn amount of interest full as large as that accru ing on the government debt. A modification and b reduc tion of the 'arifT are also recommended. Thi Secretary suggests that renscnable time should be given, bofore the Mirfhtrot ulteration is made in the existing ra'es of duty, to ennbln those interested, or likely to be eflected, to go. vern themselves accordingly. It is estimated that, under the present tariff, with an importation similar to that of the past year, the surplus revenue ot the year 1663, would, after paying all the expenses and indebtedneas of the government, exceed fifty millions of dollar*, and i ii in con-iteration of this and other facts, that the Secre tary oftho Troasniy recommends a gradual reduction in the rate of duties. It is argued that the domestic in" teres'* of the country do not rrquire such a high avetnge, and that it Is unjust to cxtiact from the people a revenue so much greater than the wants ol govern ment require Our ttade with foreign nations for the year ending June 30th, 1844, has b^en more in our favor than we have anticipated.

Korthe calendar year the result will look far dif ferent, not only a* to the balance of trade, but in the amount of the revenue. The finances of the government are full as favorable a* anticipated. The receipts and expenditures, as given in the annexed tables, show a very large surplus, but we should think the expenditures were rather extravagant.

It is beyond the power of any indi vidual to estimate, with any degree of accuracy, the probable position of the finances of the government so long in advance. In a oountry like this it is impossible to predict what a year may bring forth in commercial mat. ter?. Where is the man that two years ago imagined, for a moment, that the year 1844 would produce a revenue from customs larger thin any one previous? We look upon theso estioutas as useless, so far as the purposes of legislation are concerned Mr. Secretary Bibb can look as far into futurity, as regards this subject, as any of his predecessors, but the practice is attended with danger, and often leads us all astray.

Senator Benton Instructed?1 tit MnemteU on the Naturaliza tion Law?lSionunution?. James Gordon Bennett, Ksq :? The Report of the Secretary of the Treasury, was presented to Congress to-day, and i have been enabled to obtain a manuscript copy which I send enclosed,in older to give your readers an exclusive opportunity to peruse its contents. I have not had time to look it through, but leave it in your more able hands. In the Senate to-day, the extension of time for naturalization cams up, and the new Senators from your State made their debut, as you will perceive by the proceeding*. In the House, Mr. Duncan's one day election bill was pasted without opposi tion, and he also introduced a bill lor tin immedi ate organization of the Oregon Territory, which was read by title a second time and referred t* committee on territories This bill calls for the organization with the usual provisions of sppoint ment of governor, ?Vc. It will pass both nouses without much opinion. The question of boun dary is not included in th^ bill, as that is left for negotiation. The passage of the bill and the ap pointment of a governor, will very soon bring the question of occupancy and boundary to an issue. As you will perceive by the Missouri papers, Senator Benton has received most positive and Pointed instructions from the legislature of his tate to vote for the immediate annexation of Texas, in accordance with the principles of the treaty; and the course of his associate. Senator Atcheson, in favor of that measure, at the last ses sion. is warmly applauded in the same series of resolutions. The bill introduced by Mr. Benton is decidedly opposite to the views of his constituents, as made manifest in their resolutions. What course he will pursue yet remains to be seen. He will not resign, that's certain, and he may refuse to obey the mandate of his peers, as his seat is se cure for six years at least. The partizan exponents of tne course of the pre sent administration on the Texas question have had their heads together in the House, and it is as serted that democrats enough have been found to join with the whigs to defeat the joint resolution presented by Mr. Ingersoll, which coines up on Monday next. The democratic members thus named are from districts where abolitionism pre vails, and the course of the Albany Argue on the subject of rescinding the 25th rule, plainly shows ihat the secret circular opponents of Texas have eutered into a combination with the abolitionists to defeat this measure at the present session of Con gresa, in order to deprive the administration of the credit of accomplishing the work it has so nobly commenced. We shall see who these members are, although the vote will be taken in such a man ner as to prevent the ayes and nayH from being call ed, as the question comes up tn Committee of the Whole. The nominations of Gov. Van Ness and Henry C. Atwood will be disposed of to morrow or next dav- They will both be confirmed. Dixon H. Lewis has been elected to the Senate from Alabama. In a letter from this city, dated the 5tb instant, there were tome reflections on the Engineer in Chief of the Navy. It appears that there was some mistake in the officer alluded to ; the correspon dent had another than Mr Haswell in his eve at the time. Mr. H. is too well known, ana too much ebteemed to be spoken of in the manner de ?cribed in the letter. Wahhington, Dec. ltf, 1H4-4. Mr. J. G. Bennett:? We are appiised this evening, that among the Executive papers delivered into the Senate to-day was the nomination of Mr. Attwood, of New York. There was quite a crowd in the galleries during '.he debate on Johnson's resolution, and the deepest interest was exhibited in the course of the debate. A rumor prevailed in the morning that a wnr meretiee ajiiiinst Mexico would be committed to the confidential consideration rf the Senate? but we opine, that it anything relating to Mexico were communicated it was the latest official inter national correspondence. A great accession of strangers are at Colman's, ana the other hotels have their proportionate reinforcements A very extensive and intricate office-fishing, electioneer ing and log-rolling is in operation Irorn the Capitol to the President's House.

Mr. Choatk made his first appearance in his seat this morning, for the present session. The Chair laid before the Senate a paper from the Department of State, embracing an abstract of the customs, in obedience to act of 2d March, 1799, flic. Mr. Foster presented a petition from Cowperth waite & Co., booksellers of Philadelphia, for aid from Congress in printing ihe decisions of the Su preme Court. Among the other memorials presen ted, were those of tiie two Alexandria District Batiks for a re-charter. Mr. Foster, ol N. Y gave of a bill for the relief ol the sureties of Samu*l Swartwout. JjMr Berrien from ihe[.1udiciary Committee, re ported back the bill lor changing the time for hold ing the Federal Couris in Kentucky, which was pooled Hp is,, presented ih? Pea Patch bill, arid a bill for the rcliel ot Mary Kereide, relict of Jos. Keeside. On motion of Mr. Merrick, lOdOextra copies of the Report of the P. M. General, were ordered t? be printed lor the use of the Department. Mt. Pkarcg reported a bill for amending the charter of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Com pany, by concurring in (lis dissent of Virginia to the old one. Several messages were received from the Presi dent in writing Mr. Bates reported a joint resolution, explana tory of the disbursement of revolutionary and other pensions; and? Mr. Dickinson reported another, instructing the committee on Indian Affairs to report the state of the relations between the Government and the several ludian tribes of the United States. Mr. Ashi.ey reported a lesolution instructing the Judicury Committee in reference to drawbacks on goods e? ported to Santa Fe or the British colonies. NATI'RA t.tZATtON UWI. Mr. Johnson's resolution, instructing the Judi ciary Committee to inquire into Ihe expediency of co amending tin* naturalization laws as to extend the term required?to provide greater guards in the. naturalization papers against fraud?and to suppress, as far us practicable, the recurrence of frauds and violence in public elections, coming up in us order. Mr. J. moved further to amend, with an instruc tion to report upon the necessity of prohibiting, as far as possible, the admission of foreign convicts into the Halted States. Mr. Johsson said that the numbers of foreigners arriving in our country, the number applying: for naturalization, the frauds in the acquisition of citi zenship, and at the polls, all called upon the atten tion ot Congress in ihe amendment of the laws upon this subject. He said that in the city of New \ ork some persons had been naturalized within three days before the election; and that from evidence adduced, some :M)f> persons had voted in a single ward in Philadelphia at the recent Presidential eh ction, and that ten days after not one of them* individuals could be found. It was incontestible that th>se persons were mere instru ments in the hands of designing men. Indeed, the. influence of the naturalised voters had contrelled the isMte in the recent elections. Mr. J. then paid a pasMinr tribute (by way of a saving clause) to the illustrious foreigners who rendered the country such efficient service in the revolutionary and late wars; but insisted that the time had come when, from the vast increase of our natural imputation, no extraneous or foreign additions under the libe rality of the old system were essential to our strength or our security. The ignorance, the pre judices, the foreign sentiments, all conspired to recommend their rigid responsibility to the judicial authonty of the United States, lie would allow to foreigners the right of receiv ing land and property, he would protect them in those rights; but he would not extend to them the politicqlriglifn ot citizens until they had resided sufficiently long among us to understand them He would es|>ectally recommend the importance of arresting ihe exportation to our country of foreign convict? The whole subject of a reformation of the naturalisation laws w<>s of tuch paramount consequence as to involve Ihe very existence of the. Government itself. The few obseivations givejt were in explanation toy Mr. J-, of his obiect in in troducing this resolution. He hoped that if the Senate did not concur with him in his opinions, that they would at least concur in this, that the sub ject was worthy of the most serious considera Mr. Amjm asked the reading of the resolution, and after the reading, he said it was customary to sufler resolutions of mere inquiry to pass without opposition; but he wss opi?*et} in any degree t*
