President Elect ?Mr Buchanan left Washington this morning on h:* return to hia residence at Wheatland. We feel at liberty to state, as a tact in wbich the public may place entire confidence, that he tcok bis departure from hence without baying finally determined upon anyone mem ber of bis Cabinet During bis brief s'jjurn here, he was called on by nearly every prom inent Democratic public man now at the Fed* eral metropolis, and li'trned with frank and cordial attention to all each one of them thought proper to say with reference to public affairs. In that way he has obtained exten tire information concerning the men of his party and the views of his political friends in ail sections of the I nion. much of which will doubtless be of material service to him in leading to a <agacious arrangement of his government and policy The impression he made on all wss most happy That is, all his political friends here fe*i well assured that he will make a Cabinet bent simply on aiding him to carry rut the letter aod spirit < f :h? platform of tb? Cincinnati Convention, on which he was elected. They are satisfied that with his experience, public history and julg. meet, ard the spirit he has ev?nc?d in fci? in tercourse with all ef them. hi? choice will fall on gentlemen ab'eand willing to make a thor ough Democratic party administration. wh;ch n all the sicceie fiieni* >f its oao rea eonably a;k We remark tfca? do n ember of the Cabinet ha? keen definitely retired on This is contrary tj the declaiatiun^ ot. the wonder ttongering pies?. Ye. it if. nevetthele-s, true, the reader may rely on it. In the course of his eojturn st b<o9 Bitce tie election, and dating Lis brief visit to this putt, we hare erery rta?on tt believe that h>? vie*? to his C.bmet have n*rr wed dowo to some ff teen or eighteen, cut of perhaps, a hundred gentleman, the propriety of whose selection he has bai occasion to considei While at Wheatland, now, he willdoubtler?chocse from among tbe fif.een or eighteen, referred to above, as far a? pofsible withou* further id vice, aclicitat onj or su~ge-ti ?> from si.y quarter wbattvrr, which, it i* understood among his immediate frer.ds, he is anxious to ?void, aa lively only to eml arras? and annoy him. A? he ha* certainly .-triven fully and faithfully to obtain all possible light ou the subject ever sicce the election all hi' real fr ends will appreciate tbe Wisdim ai.d pro r*frair irg fr.m trespassing upon him during the brief time left him in which to prej are h;e it augural and to frame his gov eiaaett upon the lights already before him H:? visit to Waebing'on has been as satisfac tory to a.l his pul.tical friend? from al! sec tions a? to h'm-?lf, and has, therefore. resulted 'n impreseiens which augur well f.r the har mony acd success of hi;- administration, and for tbe ccttiruarce of his party in power, which so evidently binges upon its fucceesand harmony. He is expected to return here nbcut the 2i:h intt., and on his return all will know who are to be the Cabinet. Until then no man but himself can possibly bo the wiser in this c.nnecti n, for everything the public ?ay htar to the contrary will be mere gues<* work. The French acd English Postal Treaty ?

Though it is a pity to spoil so pretty a story, so taste tully inspired, for the sake of the truth of his. t?y Wo have to say that a gentleman who was present informs us that the only person there, besides Mr. Buchanan, whose name appears in the Herald's whole list cf guests on the occasion, was the Postmaster (isneral' Indiana Politics?Tbe priveto despatch from Indianapolis noticed yesterday in the j Star, turns out to be incorrect in some of its particulars. Thus, the democratic caucus did not "unanimously recommend Gov. Wright for a place in the Cabinet," as that alleged Messrs. Bright, Fitch, Wright and Pettit were the candidates before the caucus for tho two Senatorial nominations. It boing apparent that the two first above named were strongest, on the night before the caucus nominated the other two patri? t ca'ly withdrew; and whon tho caucus met, Messrs Bright and Fitch wero unanimously nominated, and tho caucus a? unanimously recommended Mcs.-rs Wright and TetMt, fo" first class appointments, to the President elect.

Washington, Feb 2, 1357. 7*o Editor of the St'ir: ?' British Monopoly" is the answer to a ques* tion propounJed iq your paper odo day last week, wherein you stated that ?"The postal authorities of England and France have very recently agreed upoa the terms of a new pos tal treaty or arrangement between the two governments, the purport of which is to charge less UnglUh and French postage on letters csr ried from and to this country by the Cunard steamers than in those transported on the American ships We ars satisfied that such an arrangement has been entered into between those two governments. "What does it mean ' What has given rise to it' '* What it means is. that the British Govern ment intends to monoyoh z* the ocean mail business, and pursues a policy which must, unless met by a vigorous effort on tho part of the United States Government, make her ef forts successful. Prior to this new postal ar rangement there wae a difference of 6 centa in favor r,f letters between France and the United States, carried by the Cunard line The postage was 5 cents to the T'nited St*te? Government for inland postages, and 13 pence or 26 cents for the British ocean and inland por tage, and ihe delivery in any part of Franne. By the Collins line letters for France p?y the United States Government 21 cents, and the British and French postage ei^ht pence or six teen cents, thus mskicg the i estate 37 cent! by Collins line and 31 cents by Cunard line. I The new postal treaty reduces the postage 1 by the Cunard line to 21 cents, including 5 cen'a United States inland and 8d or 16 centa British ar;d French postage, whereas the post- I age bv the Collins line is 4 cents United S:ates J inlard and rcean postage, and 51 or 1(1 centa British and French postage: thus making a letter by the C-dlins line to France 31 cents, but t>y the Cunard line only 21 cents. The effect "f this arrangement will be to draw all I the French letters to the Cunard Ulp I The postage on a letter to France by the Uoited States line direct to Havre is 20 cents, I Uni'cd States inland and ocean postage, and j the French Government collect 12 rents on all letters of i ounce ar.d 21 csnts for all letters of i ? ) that the postage on a letter of ? ounce by the United States line to Havre ia 44 cents. Let us recapitulate : The postage by the j Cunard line ia 21 cent" to any p-irt of France ; by the Collins iir.e, 31 cents; ty the Havre line, 44 cents. You Hsk what has given Ti.-e to this state of affair* ? The reicon is obvious. The British gov ernment aro determined to sustain the Cunard line of steamers in order to run off the ocean the Collins line--the only line that has suc cessfully competed with them?and thus mo nopolize not only the mails, but the pa Mer ger* and freight between tho United and Europe, uad build up an ocean steam ma rine l?y th* ?-imo means, that must necessarily drive America ? steamships from the ocean. The remedy is in tho iipnds of our <ijvcrn mei.t Sieam line-- to Europe must bo estab lished by our Government with sufficient com pensation to enable thorn to compete ruece"* l'ully with tho lines sustained by tho British government. This being accomplished, a law should at once be enacted requiring of ? ur Government promptly to reduce tho | rice of postage in American steamers to tho price charged in the Cuuard line That is, let no body ui derscll or underbid us ; arid this being done, then demand of England and France a postal treaty which ?'hall place the threo na tiona on a footing of pcrfect equality A PKEqfKN'T i;uRBBSP"??i>ENT WITH UaVF* Cart IIattstkin ?Wo have seen a letter from the Secretary of tho Navy, congratula ting Caj-t Hartati in, his officers and men, <>n their a*te return home, and the successful ac complishment of tho duty assigned to tbem.
