Most likely the float is out of adjustment or there is a bit of grit stuck under the needle, holding it open. Fuel should be coming out the overflow tube. The tube at the bottom of the bowl, is for draining the carb, and there will be a screw you turn for that.

The bottom should be the drain, and there will be a screw that opens the valve. If it is leaking from the drain tube, then that valve is bad.

Overflow, will be somewhere else up higher.
