S*r?*?Liwt? ov*r fn Bordbr to bb Pb? TPTia.-Mr Sargent, Commissioner of Cus tom*, will leave Washington next week for tbo frontier, to carry into effect tne law ?nd regu lations to prevent smuggling- These, be says in his circular, have been made necessary by the extent to which the revenue laws have been evade*, and the very lax manner in which they have been enforced by some of the officer* of custom*. The examination of travelers' bag gage will be rigorously performed; but in the examination, the officers of c as to ran will be careful not to disturb their contents more than is necessary to ascertain whether they contain t any goods liable to duty, and upon which da- , ties have not been paid. The examination must, however, be sufficiently thorough to as certain w hether they contain saoQ goods, inclu ding laces and jewels, or not. Baggage passing from the United States will be sxtimined by a proper officer, and sealed up ! in order to prevent its being disturbed while In transit. The regulations, amongst other thing*, re- ' quire that in closing and sealing trunks, boxes, j bales, barrels, or other envelopes or packages : of any kind, the proper officers, in order to gaard against false bottoms, movable hinges, ; and other fraudulent contrivances, will take care the same are so secured by cords or wire and additional seals that they cannot be openrd, nor any part of the contents taken from them, without removing, breaking, or cutting such cords, wires, or seals. Seats are to be used for sailing vessels, j steamers, boats, cars, and other vehicles en- ; yaced in trade between the United States and , other countries. Trunks, travelling bags, boxes, and every- \ thing containing articles of wearing apparel or other personal effects, or purporting to do so, must be opened and their contents thoroughly inspected by the proper officer ol the customs, who shall remove the seals from the car con taining such baggage. No trunk, travelling bag, valise, or other envelope is to be delivered or taken away until thus inspected, and all baggajte among which may be found eecreted articles liable to duty upon which the duties have not been paid, must be seized and re tained. New York Nbwbvapkr Offices iw Trop bli.?The compositors In the Times, Tribune, News, Transcript and Herald offices left their work on Friday night shortly before midnight, and refused to help get out their respective pa pers, because the night editors in charge wished to publish an advertisement which came to them in the regular course of business. It seems the Times office deeming the demand of the Printers' Union for sixty cents per 1,0(>0 ems exorbitant, sent an advertisement to the other newspaper offices, offering to give em ployment to other printers for fifty cents per 1,0(K< ems. Assconasit was known that such an advertisement had been received, the com positors in the Times, Tribune, News, Tran script and Herald, notified the editors in charge that they would not help to set up their re spective papers until they were promised that the advertisement would be rejected. The answer in each case, of course, was, that the compositors, while they had an undoubted right to fix the price at which they would work, decidedly exceeded their prerogatives in ' saying what advertisements should or should not go into the raper. If that privilege was ac corded them they would be both editors and publishers of their respective journals. The ! Herald finally succumbed; but as we write, ('2 1 a. m ,) the other papers are holding out, and their colnmns will have a slim appearance, if, : indeed, they succeed in getting out at all. We cannot but think that this most unwise and unjust proceeding will sooner or later throw every member of the Printers' Union who sanctioned it, out of employment, so far as this city is concerned?X.

The papers referred to by the World all ap peared as usual on Saturday morning, but somewhat shorn of their usual quantity of reading matter. orric iAit* Qffi,u qf Provost Marshal and Board of 1 Mnrollment of District of Columbia, > Washington, D.
