A Sensible Opinion.--A Washington correspondent says that there are various opinions at the capital respecting the length of the present session of Congress. Judge Collamer, of Vermont, who is one of the shrewdest men in Congress, advises an early adjournment. He says: “War is not a business Congress can engineer. It is properly Executive business, and the moment Congress passes beyond the line of providing for the wants of the Government, and deciding the purposes of the war, to say how it shall be conducted, the whole thing will prove a failure.”
