This question illustrates a common misunderstanding about the Constitution. The purpose of the Constitution is not to detail the powers that Congress (and the other branches of the federal government) are denied. The Constitution, instead, lists all of the powers granted to each branch, and any power that is not granted, is, in effect, denied. So, the way it was intended, every power that is not specifically granted to Congress In Article I, is denied. For example, Congress is not specifically granted the power to force all citizens to enroll in a health insurance program, therefore the the Health Care Reform Act passed earlier this years is absolutely UNConstitutional.Also, Article I, Section 9 does specifically list some powers that are denied to Congress, like suspending Writ of Habeus Corpus, or passing ex post facto laws.Also, several Amendments to the Constitution (especially among the first 10, the so-called "Bill of Rights") deny other powers to Congress, and to the government in general. In the very first Amendment, Congress is specifically denied the powers to prohibit free exercise of religion, and to abridge freedom of speech (among other things).

Habeas corpus, Illegal punishment, export taxes, no favorites, public money, titles of nobility

- no bills of attainder - no ex post facto laws - no granting titles of nobility

The deinied powers of congress are that they can not accuse some one of being guilty if they are not, they can not make a crime legal when it is commited.(note i will update all of my answers as i gain more knowledge to them thank you for not getting upset.)

President doesnt check the powers of congress, congress checks the powers of the President

All powers not specifically given to Congress belong to the states. However, the states can not abridge individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution. Basically Congress can not interfere with state law or state government so long as state law does not conflict with the US Constitution.

The President has Executive powers, Congress has Legislative powers.

Congress denied President Wilson the right to do what with merchant ships?

It's in the Constitution. 4 examples of powers denied to Congress are suspending habeas corpus, passing an ex post facto law, laying an unproportional direct tax, or preferring the ports of one state over those of another.
