The Post OAtce Depart men I The, Postmaster General has addressed a circular to the owners of steamboats aud railroads, which for cool contempt of public opinion, and disregard lor ita wants aud conveniences, excels any thing which has emanated from an official source on this bide of the water wilhin the present century. The Constitution of the United States simply states, that " Congress shall have power to establish |>ost offices and post roads."' Out of this grant to Congress, Mr. Wicklifle in his circular, manufactures the assertion, that no citizen has a right to send a letter, newspaper, or packet, by any conveyance over a mail route. Of late years, a large portion ol the f (irculation of newspapers, is conveyed from city to city in large bundles, which at the point of destination, arc opened, folded, and distributed to subscribers, or sold. Pamphlets and magazines, on which the post charge is heavy, are of necessity conveyed in this manner, and expressly to meet this contingency, and to afford every facility to the public to procure their papers in the most prompt and cheap manner. Congress enacted in 1825, as follows:? " The Postmaster General, in any contract he may enter int# for the conveyance ol the mail, may authorize the person with whom such contract is to he made, to carry newspapers, magazines and pamphlets, other than those conveyed in the mail: Provided, that no preference shall be given to the iM>her of one ntwspaper over that of another in thr same place." Here is a law expressly enacted, to enable the poevnaster to meet in| the llullest manner the wau't ct the public. It was done expressly to do awav v. :h any forced censtruction ol the original lar^, b) which a postmaster might arrogate to him* fi.i the power of trenching upon the rights of the people. What is the proper course to be pursued uiider this law, which in itself is a mere disavowal on the part of Congress of any intention to molest i he free transit of newspapers 1 Simply to bend to the wishes of the people, and attend to the strict duties ol his department. This course, which was that pursued by his predecessors, did not suit the present incumbent. He wishes to make the best use of his power. He construes the law as follows :? That such a privilege, upon many of the railroad and steamboat routes, and indeed upon otherroutes, would be advantageous alike to the publisher and the public, is conceded; but it must be granted upon application, and specific terms. If, therefore, any publisher wishes to convey newspapers over your line, out of the mail, he should make application to you, state the name and number of papers, daily or otherwise, and, upon your report and application to thi3 department, the terms upon which it can be done will be made known; which terms will be equally applicable to all papers. The Constitution, in granting to Congress the j'uwcr 10 esiaDiisn posi roaos, uia not miena 10 aeprive the citizen of his natural right of sending a packet by a public conveyance by any messenger he chooses. Congress, by the law of 1825, so far from denying the right of individuals of having their own messenger, gives the postmaster the pswer of allowing the government contractor to carry newspapers and magazines free of charge. But this sal pient postmaster denies that the community have any rights in the matter, except such as they derive trom the Department " ad such terms as will be made known." " The terms" is a phrase which would imply another " contract" in view. The time is now fast approaching when the matter at issue between the postmaster and the people will be brought to a close. The success of the private expresses is proof conclusive that the government arrangement, from the mismanigement of the head of the Department, no longer answers the ends of its establishment. Reckless Staoe Driving.?Last night about 9 o'clock, a cab was proceeding quietly up Chambers street, containing a gentleman sitting on the back seat. As the cab turned into Broadway, an omnibus, driven at a furious rate on the left side of the street, dashed against the cab, the pole of the omnibus striking the back part of it opposite the back seat with such violence, as to smash the rear of the cab into atoms. Half a hundred persons instantly rushed to pick up the dead body of the passenger, tor all who saw the collision were certain that he was killed. Luckily, however, the gentleman saw the omnibus before it struck, and with remarkable presence of mind sprang upon the front seat, and escaped unharmed. If he had been looking in any other direction, escape from death would have been impossible. The omnibus driver drove on at a furious rate, but the cab driver, after running several blocks, overtook it and obtained itsaumber. Several gentlemen present immediately gave their nameB as witnesses of the transaction. The stage was one of Palmer's, and the city No. is 66 ; but its own number is believed to be 6. The ci'b's No. is 38. It is to be hoyed that this affair will not be suffered to poss unnoticed by the proper authorities. A Jewish Festival.?Wednesday is the most solemn festival of the year with the Israelites throughout the world, being the Daj' of Atonement. The origin of this institution is to be found in Leviticus. xvi. 2f?. The fast commences this evening at six o'clock, and continues until Wednesday evening at ven o'clock. Divine worship continues throughout the whole day, the minister performing the " ervicr in white linen shrouds, which are preserved vi't, ;.ious care until death, when they are used < . Diliments for the grave. The Synagoeaes ir n this day a most interesting spectacle? fh -v.us Israel's scattered children flocking to the hacred spot, where the remnant of their former great treasures is still to be found in the law of Moses; the whole of the five books being inscribed by hand in the Hebrew characters, on fine vellum, urhi/tK i a rnilpfl nn anVAlla /"? f %*rr\r\A ArnamontA/J with gold and silver, and precious stones. Thk New Jkhsky Trial.?The murder trial in Hudson county terminated on Sunday morning.? The case wa^ given to the jury about seven o'clock on Saturday evenine, and at two o'clock on Sunday morning they came into court with a verdict of "manslaughter" against both the prisoners, Graham and Lammer. The extreme punishment for manslaughter in New Jersey, is imprisonment in the State prison for ten years. ('ration om the Croto*.?Last evening Mr. E. I) Connery, of this city, delivered an excelleat oration before the Pros|>ect Temperance Society.

They may, however, possibly learn a lesson of wisdom from this incident. The old hero, they will perceive, does not intend to trust to the tardy movements of politicians; he takes the business into his own hands, and, alter all, that is the only effectual mode to Becure success. He will prove himself as dangerous a customer to Mr. Van Buren in the ntxt presiden ial campaign, as he was to the|lndian Chief in the battle of the Thames. I The stale of parties is indeed singularly obscure, and the position of each candidate is peculiarly critical. Mr. Van Buren and Mr. Calhoun have been hitherto the most prominent, and the elections ol delegates to the National Convention have been decided in most cases in reference to the claims of those two distinguished statesmen; but, like contesting horses in a race, having made the running from the " score," unless they have " good bottom"' and are sound, " wind and limb," they will tail ere they approach the goal. There are already advances made by some who were nearly invisible in the far distant group of competitors, and an "outsider" may yet gain the prize. Seriously, we see a waning of the fortunes of Mr. Van Buren. By the superior tactics of his party leaders, he gained the thirty-six New York State delegates to the National Convention, and this event WAN mlrnlatpH In niv? In mti?? I - 0*?v ww*..aw?<w??ww %w V?UVI States, which are desirous to live their support to the most available candidate ; but here a mass meeting of the people was called to respond to the doings of the Syracuse Convention, and the whole affair was so disastrous, that prooi was given ol Mr. Van Buren's weakness in this, which was deemed his strong hold. Some expectants and waiters on Providencc, magnified hundreds into thousands of the congregated masses ; but the exposure of the fraud has plunged them into hopeless desperation, and it will be wofully calamitous to them elsewhere. But the arrival of Col. Johnson at this opportune moment will complete the rout of Mr. Van Buren's forces, both north and east. Besides, Mr. Calhoun's friends arc becoming more_active, and Gen. Cass is making rapid advances in the general favor. For Mr. Van Buren there is a lack of enthusiasm amongst his friends, and he has to contend with the defection of all disappointed applicants for office during his occupancy of the Presidential chair, and their names are " legion and in some States, which are now deemed] secure for him, his well-informed friends admit that his popularity is overrated. Mr. Calhoun has many friends, but it is very doubtfVil whether they are sufficiently numerous to obtain for him the nomination, nor can Mr. Buchanan or Col. Johnson be successful without the coalition of other parties.? The probability is, then, that neither of Jthe prominent candidates which we have named will receive the nomination of the Baltimore Convention. , The sccond choice of the friends of Mr. Calhoun, ' Colonel Johnson, Mr. Buchanan, and many of Mr. ] Van Buren's most talented friends is, General Cass, < and on him they will ultimately unite. If General { Cass should be nominated, no human power, nor j earthly agency could prevent his election. He . would unite the democratic party with a large por- i tion of the whigs, and establish the go\ernment on ' a firm basis, purge it ot the corruptions which have | dhiigured it, dismiss to obscurity the mere selfish intriguing politician, and be the harbinger cf a new and a better era. In such an event the republic will be safe. Doubtful then as is the future, the movements of the present are peculiarly interesting, and those of Colonel Johnson more particularly. He is determined to try his own strength in the national convention, and if he fails he will give his aid to General Cass, but at all events he will stand arrayed against Mr. Van Buren, and so will Mr. Calhoun, , who will also aid General Cass when his own chances are exploded. With the convention then, J as now constituted, Mr. Van Buren is in danger of < losing the nomination; but it he obtains it, Mr. j Calhoun's friends may disown its authority, as un- I fairly constituted, run the free trade candidate on ! his own merits, and apathetic as the people are towards Mr. Van Buren, the election will go to the House of Representatives, where his chances of defeat outbalance his chances of success The signs of the times are ominous, but we shall | decipher them carefully for the information of our ( readers. i Movements?Among the arrivals at the American Hotel we perceive thelname of the Hon. W. S. Hubbell, member of Congress elect for the counties of Steuben and Allegany, New York. Bishop Doane of New Jersey, was at the Astor yesterday, but he left in the evening for Boston. Niblo's ? Donizetti's new opera of Gemma di Vergy was very successfully represented l-ast night by the new singers Calveti and Perozzi. It is to be repeated to-morrow. To-night the Ravels produce their last novelty, the Conjmrtr't Gift. During the long run of the " 55 Mirfortuntt," the family have been incessantly employed rehearsing the Conjurer's Oi/t. Antoine appears as the clown, in which he iB inimitable. Gabriel, Jerome, and Madame Leon also appear. Indeed, the pantomime is cast with the entire strength of the rorp* dramatigue.? The whole piece is produced by Jerome Ravel, who has become celebrated as an author from his Masulmr, and Fortunatus, and the pantomime of this evening is said to be equal to the one, superior to the other. The beautiful classic groupings of the three gladiators, are to be represented in the usual rtluj of the Ravels, by Jerome. Antoine, and the Gabriel. Chatham Theatre ?Grattan'6 new drama of the Rebel Chief still holds possession of the stage, and will, we hope, do so far days to come. With the'chaste and quiet personations of Mr. Grattan, the lovely Norah by Mrs. Jones, the volatile Mrs. Herring, the piece is an attractive feature. In addition to the attractions of the ' Chief,' to-night, the ever popular commedettc of the Rake's Progress will be produced, with a new dance by Miss Rallia, and Irish songs, jiirs, and all that sort ol thing, in abundance. Races.?All the races of the meeting are advertised te come off on the Union couree to-day. Five races will be run. The first race, sweepstakes for three year olds, two mile heats; after which, sweepstakes for three year olds, mile heats ; after which, purse races of two mile heats ; mile heats, best three in five, and mile heats.

I.inui pu.u..> 1 Kingston, Sept. 38, li43. \ Honoraklt Otnth men of the Legiilutive Council,and Gen tlemen of the Home of Jtiiembly :? 1 am happy to meet you assembled for the discharge of the high function* entrusted to you. Various considerations of importance have prevented my calling you together at au earlier period. Since your last Session the birth of a Princess has diffused joy throughout the British Empire, and wc have reason to be deeply grateful for the continued protection vouchsafed by Almighty Providence to our Gracious Quoen, whose life and health are blessings to her subjects. In the same interval, an afflicting event has occurred in Canada bv the demise of your late Governor, my immediate predecessor, whose heart waa devoted to the public welfare. Universal regret has done honor to his memory throughout the Province; and I cannot abstain from noticing that his desolate widow and family, and his mortal remains, in passing through the neighboring territories of the United States to their place of embarkation at New York, were received with marked and affecting tokens of friendly respect, which indicated both the esteem in which he was held in n country in which he had been personally well known, and also a generous sympathy worthy of the great nation by which it was evinced. The Act of the Imperial Legislature which facilitates the introduction ol Canadian wheat, and of dour prepared in Canada, into the ports of the United Kingdom, will, I trust, prove to be a valuanle boon to this Province; and it a further proof of her Majesty's unremitted care for the prosperity of this portion of her dominions. A copy of a despatch from her Majssty's Hecietary of State on this subject will be laid before you. Measures will be submitted to you for the improvement of the system of Judicature in Lower Canada; of the Municipal Institutions, the laws relating to Education, and the Jury System of both Divisions of the United Province, and of the Assessment Laws in Upper Canada, as i well as ou other important subjects; allot which will, I am sure, engage your earnest attentionI have recently made a tour through the Trovince, ' such as the exigency ot public business would permit, in order that I might become in some degree acquainted i with local circumstances requiring attention. I have had great gratification in seeing a fine country, evidently advancing in improvement; and have every | where been received with manifestations of loyalty to ur gracious Sovereign, end with personal kindness to myselt It has been highly satisfactory to me to witness the < great work* in progress, which, owing to the loan raised 1 in England under the guarantee of the Imperial Govern i ment, the Province haa been enabled to undertake or < prosecute. They are calculated, 1 hope, to extend the ! commerce, and develope the resources of this vast coun i try, and increaie the public revenue and general aad i individual wealth. i In those parts where wotks of this description are in progress, I found contentment prevailing at the prospect I which they present. In other parts there is a cry lor im- i proved roads, for tha conveyance of produce to appro- ' priate markets, a claim which is worthy of considera- 1 tion; tor on such communications the piosperity of the I country must in a great measure depend. Nowhere was 1 this anxiety mora strongly expressed than in the eastern \ townships of Lower Canada, where the community, almost entirely agricultural, in consequence of the heavy I duties imposed on their produce in the United States,have lost the market to which they had formerly recourse, 1 while the exemption from duty in our country of the si- i rnilar pioduce of our neighbors, enables them, by greater 1 facilities of conveyance, to undersell the producers of ' the eastern townships in our own markets. f Similar complaints of the effects of the duties on our i produce in the United States, and of the facility given to < the admission of their produee into our territory, are also c made in other parts. Whatever improvement can be afforded to our internal communications, is so obviously t desirable lor the advantage of the community, that any I outlay devoted to that object and consistent with the i mean* at command, must be highly beneficial. It is, s herefore, much to be regretted, that the state of the f T nances does not afford any immediate prospect of our icing able to meet the wiahei ol many districts deeply J nterested in this respect. n I cannot refrain from bringing to your notice, aa a sub- 1 ect worthy of consideration, the state of the Prisona in 1 loute portions of the Province. The Penitentiary at f Kingston is an institution very creditable to the country: great cost has been incurred in the erection of Prisons in f ather placea, and some of the local authorities are now t laudably exerting themselves to provide suitable accom- t modations for prisoners; but in some places there is great < deficiency- The justice due even to criminals requirea > that they should not be lubjreted to greater punishment 1 than what is designed by their sentence, and that disease, or death, from foul air and want of exercise, should not be superadded to imprisonment. It is likewise due to untried prisoners, who may be Innocent, that they should not be confined in the same cell with convicted criminals, j A classification and separation of the latter is also requisite. Decency and morality demand the same with regard tithe sexes; and debtors ami criminals ought not to be confined together. It is desirable that inquiry should be made, in order to ascertain in what respects the prisons of the country may bo defective in requisite accommodation, snd to remedy any material deficiency that may exist. The establishment of a lunatic asylum in Lower Can aia is much r?quired; those who are visited with the afliction of mental aberration being now confined in the :ommon prison, or in some of the religious and charitable institutions which do honor to that portion of the Province Measures are in progress for the permanent loca;ion of the asylum now existing under a temporary arrangement in Upper Canada, and (or the completion of the arrangements of that institution. ? Gentlemen of the Houtt of Jltttmbly: The accounts for the past, and estimates for the present year will be lai I before you. 1 am concerned to an. nounce to you that there is a considerable decrease in the revenue, but I hope that it proceeds from temporary causes, and that it will be followed by a greater increase.? The loan obtained in England, under the guarantee of the imperial government haa been raised on advantageous terms. i no uci 01 idu imperial legislature presenting a new tariff, render* Decenary corresponding alteration in our cuitom lawn, and this subject will be brought under your consideration. i have no doubt of your readineM to pro- i ride for the exigencies of the public service, and as far as that object can do promoted by practicable and judicious i economy, you may rely on my co-op?ration. Honorable Gentlemen of the Ltgitlalive Council, and Gen- 1 tlemen of the House of Jlsieinbly: I will not detain you longer from the commencement of your arduous duties. The welfare of Canada depends ou the result of your deliberations on the numerous and important questions which will come before you, and that great end will, I trust, be the sole object of your labors. It is the anxious desire of Her Majesty's government, and will be the constant aim of my endeavors. I humbly hope that the blessing of Almighty . (iod will orown our united effjrts with success.

occasions of fire, to create tights and disorders, and thus degrade the character, and impair the usefulness and discipline of the department. Being anxious in common with the great body of the Bremen to prevent the repetition of these outrages, and effectually protect the respectable and well disposed, the undersigned respectfully and earnestly solicits the establishment of a Fire Police, consisting of not less than 'u;ftntr men tn ho ntflrpd iinrlur the rharflrn of the Chief Engineer, whose duty it ?hall he to assemble at every fire to protect pronerty and to suppress tumult. Ia tupport of this meaiure your attention is solicited to the attendance of officers at public steamboat landings (and other places were people are collected in large numbers) for the preservation oi law and order. That in consequence of the city marshals (though required by law) having discontinued their attendance at tires, no provision nas been made in the event ol this calamity, although ittracting crowds of dishonest and disorderly people. It s also necessary to prevent robbery and to afford proper onvcnience and protection to the Fire Department in the lischarge of its important and laborious duties The frequent outrages and riots that are now permitted o go unpunished, are calculated to bring the whole detriment into disgrace, and men of worth and character, tnding no protection or security, either retire from the ervice, or seek to protect themselves ky violence and orce The uadersigned confidently believes that the organi;ation of a fire police by securing and exposing to punish, nent the lew worthless and abandoned men that now vioate the public piece, would check those scenes of vioemce and restore the harmony and discipline of the deitrtment. Convinced that your honorable body is anxious to aford protection to the peaceful and respectable firemen of he city, and to suppress the insubordination and riot that hrcaten the very existence of the department, the underligned indulges the hope that this communication will -eceive the speedy and favorable censideration of your honorable body.

It was proved by Mr. Joseph C.Vandervoort, that the girl came to the house of his mother as a servant, on the day above named, and left the premises in the afternoon, carrying ofl the property atolen. Ofiicer Sparks testified to their arres* at a house in Leonard street, where they were found in bed together, and where a portion of the olotbing and other stolen articles were recovered. A pair of sus[<endera taken from the house,was found on the person of Adams, and he also confesred to have sold the stolen silver. The girl confeased the thefi when arrested.

Onhisarrest, it was found that the hoy had a suit of new clothes anu rings in his ears, which he had not, when he left the house of Wilkins. Owing to the extraordinary absence of Alexander Smith, constable of the Iflth ward, who arrested the boy, and to whom he had confessed the theft, the testimony was not sufficient to convict him, and he was, therefore, acqaitted. The Court gave directions for affidavit to be made of the service of the subposna upon Constable Smith, in order ta attach him to answer this contempt of Court.

(K7* BOAT RACE.?In answer to the "plain state' meut"of S.Dorlon, in yesterday'a Herald, I shall take thin last opportvnity of informing the public of some of the facts of the case, and leave them to ascertain why the judges cannot decide upon our late contcst, and the reason they cannot agree as to who was the victor. Two of the judges say it was a fair race, and honorably won by me; the other two, without giving any satisfactory reason, contend that it was not, though every unprejudiced person will acknowledge I beathim full 35 yards. Now, as they will not show cause why they withhold from me my just due, I will. Mr. Henrj Storks holds a bet between oaeof the latter judge* (John Jennings) and Mr. Ingersoll,to the amount ot $118, and Mr. Chauncey St. John holds an eighty-four dollar bet made by this same gentleman (Jennings) and another individual; and this is one of the men who refuges to decide on the raae. As another evidence that I won the race lair, I would hero stote that several individuals, whose names 1 have,have called upon me and stated that they had made bets upon Dorlon, and considering the race fairly won by me, have given up the money- 1 will give their names to any one who doubts this, and will take the trouble to call on me. The proprietors of Castle Garden, also considering me honorably and fairly the victor, have given me the $26 previously promise! to the winning boat. If Mr. Dorlon (and his friends) will act honorably and acknowledge himself fairly beaten in this last race, then will I be ready to try him again?until be does, to talk of rowing another race with me is useless. STEPHEN ROBERTS. (Hy- THE METALIC TABLET STROP, FOR keeping razors in perfect order, has been in constant tiso for the last twenty-seven year*. The following certificates from the most scientific gentlemen are published to show their worth From General James Tallmadge, President of tht American Institute. Saunders' Razor Strop, with its four sides, combines ?J , mirably all the requisites to sharpen and set razors with Hue and smooth edge?It is a real comfort to possess it. JAMES TALLMADGE. New York, November, 1841. From M. Milliken, Cutler to the Royal Navy, 301 Strand. The Metallic Tablet, in its use, is simple, having the same effect on a razor as a hone, without using oil or water, and in a tenth part of the time. After five years trial I can recommend it with perfect confidence. M. MILUKIN. From Professor Griscom and Dr. Valentine Molt. George Saunders' Imperial Strop?We can freely testily to its value. The side which he calls the Metallic Tablet is, as far as we know, a thing of his own introduction into this country; it appears to be an excellent, cenvenient substitute lor a hone, and operates on the same principle as steel does upon a table knife, but with far greater smoothness and certainty; it saves the unpleasant necessity of oil and water, to assi?t in whetting. The other three sides of the strop are extremely well finished, flat, kipootU and almost elastic, preserving the razor from that roundness of edge which so soon destroys its keenness. J.
