Tha penny post waa established in London by a ra ti red undertaker by the name of Murrv, in the year 1383. In 1711 the government discovered that the busi ness, which bad oy that time become a very profitable one, belonged of right to themaelvea, and therefore took it away frombim; but allowed him a pension of ? MO per annum for the remainder of hia life. Account* from Iowa Territory repreaent the growing wheat crop a* io a suffering condition. The winter, up to laat accounts from the West, has been a singular one ?mostly dry and pleasant. But very little snow had fall en, and there was no sleighing to speak of. Much wheat is represented to have been killed, and many lielda ap pear to be dead, though it was hoped a spell of favorable winter and spring weather would revive them. 1 ho report of the Chief Topographical Engineer states that the importance of the harbor of St. Joseph, Michi gan, ia every ysar increasing. Lock* have been con structed on the St. Joseph river, at Miahwaka, and at Bristol, which have opened the navigation to Three Rivera, a distance of 130 miles from tha lake. The ex 8ort of wheat alone this year ia estimated at 750,000 ushels?equal at least to half a million of dollars. Three steamboats are running on the river. The first written massage ever despatched by an Exe cutive to a legislative body, waa sent by Gov. Hancock to the deputies ol the State of Masaachusotte, in 1758, and was occasioned by a severe indisposition, which render ed him unable to attend in person, for the purpose of de liver, ng the customary speech at the commencement of the session. The body of Miss Jen* Cunningham, a moat beautifal young lady, seventeen years ol age, was found lately on the prairie, back of Chicago. She wa* to have been married next day, but went in the afternoon to invite hor sister to bo her bridesmaid; ,and, in returning, was overtaken by a snow storm and frozen to death. On the receipt of the last foreign news at Detroit, the price of flour advanced 33 cents per barrel. The thermometer at Milwaukie on the 36th ult. stood at 15 degrees below zero. The monument which hae been making at Boston, for Capt. Shubiick, is now finished, and will do forwarded in a few (lays to Charleston, S. C. where tbo gallant Cap tain's remain* now lie. Hon. rAbbott Lawrence haa addressed another tariff letter to Mr. Rives. , Steam-ship Cambria, Judkina, arrived at Halifax on the 91 inst., and took on board aix additional passengers,and left same day for Liverpool. Tha Cambria fell in with lar^e quantities of ice, continuing from Seal Island to fifax, and at times moved at tbe rate of only 3 miles per hour. A correspondent of the Providence Journal aaye, that the ship Gen. Jackson, of Bristol, and now lying in port, is supposed to be eighty years old, or thereabout She of our was a prize to one oT our privateer* during the last war with England?was built at Calcutta, of toak wood, and is yet a sound, staunch vessel, having recently returned from a whaling cruise in the Pacific. At a general meeting of the officers of the militia and volunteers, held at the City Hall, Baltimore, on Wednes day e.vuuDV, a large number ol officers of the volun teers and militia resigned their commission*. It was al leged at the meeting that the cause which led to this step by the officers, was the absence of any law which would enable tbe volunteers to call to their assistance other citizens, In the event of a contingency requiring their torvices. An Antwerp journalist states that he sent a reporter to Brussels for the" King's apecoh," and with a couple of carrier pigeons to bear bask the document. At Brus sels he gave tbe pigeons in charge to a waiter, and call ed for breakfast. He was kept waiting for some time, hot a delicious fricasee atoned for the delay. After breakfast, he paid his bill, and called for his pigeons ? "Pigeons," ejaculated the waiter, " you have eaten them !" The Washington (Ark ) Telegraph of the 4th instant, says : " Since our last, Little River has risen some 13 or 18 feet, and a gentleman just from Lanesport, states that lUd River was rising there when he left." The Shrere port Goz rite of the 18th says, that the river at that place is in a good boating con 'tuon. A new track, sav* the Lowell Courier, lor tbe accora it" dation of the Nashua and Concord merchandise trains, will be luid the present season. It will leave Nashua U- ;i?o?t half way between the covered bridge and the Niohua engine house, cross tha Paw tucket canal, and take the Boeton track near the deep cut. This will save much time and trouble. The citiz> na of Wilmington are making arrangement* to err est a granite monument one hundred feet high, in the Wilmington and Brandy wine Cemetery, in memory ot the brave men of the Delaware lino, who foil in the battlefield in the Revolution. The Fire Department of New Orleans had their grand annual celebration on Wednesday, the 4'h ult. Both Houses ot the Louisiana Legislature adjourned to parti al ate in it. The papers speak of it as a beautiful pa IUUO. The total amount of tonnage built in the State of Maine the paat year, ie probably not far from 31,105 tona. The Chieag? Democrat ujri the attacks of some of our Western papers upon Eastern harbors are doing a great deal of raischiet to the lake interests AVhy so 1 Because we get more Eastern men to support the lakes than we do Western. Lake Champlain is frozen hard in its widest part, and carriages puss over it daily. Th i Legislature of Virginia has passed a bill for the relief of the Winchester and Potomac railroad company, which, it is supposed, will give the road a new start? The M'inchttltr Republican says Efforts are now making to raise a fund, with every prospect of success, to re-iion the road, which, when done (the road being in a very good condition in its wood-work, to receive it) will put it in a state o transport with celerity and safety all the trade and travel that may offer. Five thousand dollars have been appropriated by the City Councils of Philadelphia, for the construction of the rail toed along the westorn city front. A Southern College of Teachers has been instituted in New Orleans. Thrro are 700 temperance societies in Germany. The Germans have heretofore been opposed to tempe rance societies., The Legislature of Kentucky has passed a law taxing pistols fi a pair, and revolving pistols S'l each. The last accounts from Pensacola state that all vessels of war at that place were preparing for sea, and would leave as soon as they could be fitted out. The slave Pauline, who was arrested on the 13th Jan nary, 1845 found guilty of fiendish barbarfty in ill-treat iog her mistress, Mrs. Kappenneok, and her children, at No. 33 Bayou Road, New Orleans, and sentenced to be hung on the 38th instant, is now in jail, awaiting her execution. , The democrats of New Orleans have nominated A. J. Guizot as their candidate for Mayor. The railroad from Madison to Indianapolis is to be continued to Lafayette, Ind. We observe by the proceedings of a meeting of the '?Laborers of Memphis," that they had agreed to strike for the teu hour system, on the 2nd day of March. The Rome (Ga ) Journal says, that by the 1st of Janu ary, 1847, at farthest, the cars will reach Cross Plains, in Murray county, Ge. This is a beautiful site for the lo cation of an inlaud town, and will for some time be a place of considerable trade. The Chattanooga Gazette thinks the read will not be finished to Chattanooga be fore 1850. We think it will before that time. This will make Cross Plains the terminus for four or five years, ri d perhaps longer. Tne Tennessee trade must ail con gregate there, and a town of some importance must ne cessarily spring up. Gov, Edwards, of Missouri, has grauted a pardon to Burr, one of the persons who was sentenced to the pen itentiary five or six years ago, in Marion county, Mo., for stealing negroes. Three were convicted; one by the name of Work was pardoned last year, and one named Thompson is still in the Penitentiary; but it is supposed that if no more deprecations be committed on the lights of the citizens or Missouri, that ha will bo pardoned during the ensuing year. The Union gives the following incident as having oc curred at the recent fire at the "Hentie House," Cincin nati:-A stranger in room No. ?, upon hearing the alarm, rushed from his bed, bewildered, and evidently half dreaming that he was on board of a burning steam boat? yelled at the top of his lungs?"Starboard the helm, pilot!"?and before he could be stayed, placed his hand upon the stair-railing, and jumped (overboard, as ha supposed.) from thn fourth to to the second story floor! We i egret that he was considerably injured in his fall. The Board of Managers of the American Bible Society have unanimously elected the Hon.,John McLean, of Uio United States Supreme Court, President of the So ciety, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of Governor Smith. t Another Cherokee delegation, sent by that portion of the Nation, known as ths "treaty party," has arrived in Washington. Joseph Gales, senior editor of the National Intelligen cer, is dai geroosly ill. Signer Muzzi, is exhibiting in New Orleans a model machine, constructed to illustrate the practicali ty of aerial navigation Latest accounts make mention of more snow in the West. In the interior of Illinois it was at a depth of eighteen to twenty-four inohes. The weather was very cold. A house in Little Rock, Ark., belonging to Senator Ashley, was destroyed by fire on the 18th ult. The amount of loss is not stated.

This will af ford the day laborer an opportunity of relieving himself from any embarrasment. Notice hat been given by tha Auditor of tha Stata of tea on land* i Arkansas, that taxes on land* and town lots can be paid directly into tha Stat* Treasury of Arkansas. The name of the post office in Lafayette county, Arkansas, has been changed from Lalayetta C H to Lawistown. Tha Arkansas river was rising at Van Buran, Arkansas, on the 91st ult. Much rain and snow had fallen. It was reported from tha Creek Nation that snow had fallen to the dapth of fifteen inches. Guano is bring introduced as a fertilizer en the rice plantation* of the South. The Cleveland Plain Dealer thinks there is no longer any doubt but a railroad will be constructed from that city to Columbus, where it will connect with a railroad (not yet finished) leading to Cincinnati. The New Bedford Af.-rrury says that the aggregate of criminal business in the State or Massachusetts, during the year 1846, comprises 9979 prosecutions, out of which thure hare been 1038 convictions, 109 acquittals, and other cases variously disposed of or are still pending.?

Dr. George Park man, of Boston, ha* presented a site for a new medical college, near the Massachusetts Gen eral Hospital, sixty feet by one hundred. The following curious statement, by Dr. Granville, is taken from an English paper. It is drawn from the regis tered cases of 876 women, and is derived from their an swers to the age at which they respectively marrisd ? It is the first ever constructed to exhibit to females their chnnces of marriage at various age*.

The Westchester Herald of the 10th says :?The I intrepid navigator* of 8ing Sing hare succeeded with much labor and expense in forcing a passage through ! the ice, (sbout a mile distance,) to the channel, for the largest class of steamers, and we have the pleasure to 1 announce to the public that tho navigation of the Hudson J River between this place end the city of New York it i again unobstructed, and the steamer Croton, Captain I Lynch, leaves this afternoon for that port; and will con i tinue her tripe for the season. The Pittsburg Gazette of the 4th instant says | We conversed yesterday with a gentleman ;who came up on the Hibornia as far as Wheeling. He says they ; had much difficulty in getting un. On reaching Cap ! tins they found the channel closea with ice, ana after j making moie than a dozen attempts to break through, , were obliged to desist for that time. After lying by a ,i abort time, another attempt was made, and the boat ! grounded in lull eight feet water, the ioe on her bottom I being so thick. Hare was a dilemma. At length it was ! suggested to turn the escape-pipe into the hold. The , freight was taken out, the hatches battened down, and j this was done, but it required five or six hours to thaw i the ice off*. It proved an eifectual remedy, however, 1 and her bottom was fried. Finally, she got through and | came on up. The idea of turning the steam into the hold to clear her bottom of ice is,we believe, quite new. A man, name unknown, between fifty and sixty years of age,and supposed to be an Englishman, com mitted auctde near Pittsburg a day or two ago. A bill authorising the Baltimore and Ohio Rail Road Company to borrow money on the stock of said ,for the Company,lor the purpose of renewing the track between Baltimore city and Harpers'Ferry, has passed the Mary land House of Drlogates. The Nashville theatre has been sold to the Inde pendent Order of Odd Fellows, and will shortly be con verted into an Odd Fellows Hail. V. S. District Court. Before Judge Betts. March 13.?Decisions. ?

The select committee ot the Senate, which was appointed yesterday to investigate the charges of the Timet against the whig members of that body, met at the capitol this morning, and entered upon the duties assigned them. Messrs. Dow Ac Robin son, ot the Timet, and Lieut. Porter, of the Navy, were cited, and appeared to give in, in evidence, whatever they knew of the matter. The two for mer were required to specify the facts which they had to ailirm, and name such witnesses as they should produce to corroborate the same. This they have done. Lieut. Porter, as I have been informed, states merely that one of the door-keepers bad in formed him, a snort time since, that the whig Sena tors were holding a caucus above stairs. The Lieu tenant, in restating this, added the fact of having himaelt seen Mr. Pakenham in the capitol the same morning, it there be no other testimony than thia to fasten so serious a charge aa treachery to their country upon the whig Senators, it had been better it were never made. The Senate of the U. States, though composed ot individuals no better, or more able to resist temptations than other men in a dif ferent position?still there is an air ot dignity and sell respect connected with them as a whole, of which they are, both individually and* collectively, extremely jealous. It is not as much,perhaps, upon their own account, personally, that this pnde of po sition is felt by for the sovereign States that they represent; and therefore, it is a most wicked thing for any one, through political hostility, either to a part or the whole ot that body, to make charges of so abominable a nature against them, as those in the Timet, without first having the most irrefragible proofs to sustain them. Prom what has transpired of to-days proceedings before the committee, I am led to believe that the whole aflair will turn out to be nothing more than mere vapor?smoke, if you choose to call it. The examinations are held in private,'and will remain ao until the committee get through with the entire bu siness. Speaking ol appointments and removals among some of Mr. Tylers friends last night, one of them remarked that there was not more than one of that party' now in office, except Mr. Wise, Mr. Gwin, and Mr. Polk's brother ; and, as the Presi dent had up to this time decapitated nearly all of the " Captain's" old adherents, it was not to be ex pected that he would leave those then in office long, including Mr. Tyler's last nomination. Win. H. Polk. The remark was just, though ludicrous enough. It will be remembered that, just before Mr. Tyler left Washington, he nominated that young gentleman an charge to Naples, with a vary long list of others, Ion, various appointments. The Senate, however, declined acting upon them; and he, with all the others, had to go over till the next administration, which is thia, came into power. Mr. Polk renominated hiB brother for the place for which Mr. Tyler had done it previously,aad this se cured him a very pleasant and comfortable ap pointment, at $4500 a-year, where he has nothing to do except lounge about the placea of publio amusement and eat macaroni. It would never have occurred to Mr. Polk to put hia brother into an office of that kind, if indeed he would have thought of giving him one of any kind, had not John Tyler dene so before he left the White House, and thus saved the President the mortification of knowing that he had a brother for whom he would wish to pro vide. but could not, on account of the indelicacy that would attach to it by doing so. Mr. Polk has shown his gratitude in this matter to the late President and his friends, who have been in office, by remov ing his brother-in-law. Dr. Miller, with nearly all the others, from the place of third assistant Post Master General, by suffering Cave Johnson to abo lish it, with a view, first, to get Dr. Miller out, and secondly, under a pretence tnat it would be a saving ot some $2000 or $3000 a year to the department.? I don't know how far the Post Master General's powers extend; but it seems to me that he has trans cended them in abolishing an office created by law, without even the form of Taw. but by his own abso lute will. The office that he has thus abolished,was a sort of check upon the administration of business in the first and second assistant's offices; and there fore an independent branch of the Post Office de Krtment, just as much so as Mr., Johnson's. I have en told that in contracting for the single article of mail bags alone, which was a part of its doty, $42,000 nave been saved within a very short period, and which would have been allowed by the other branches had it not been for this. By this late ar rangement, the second and third assistant Post Master's duties are merged into that of the second, and the check upon them, created by destroy ed by the fiat ol the Post Master General. Auxl. Washington, March 18, 1816. The Committee of Investigation held their firat sitting to-day, in the room of the Committee on In ? dian Affairs, of the Senate. We are not aware of I their progress, the examination, from the necessi : ties of the case, being conducted with closed doors. Connected with the startling allegations of the Dat ly Timet, upon which this Board of Investigation is called,we have a word to say, concerning a member of the Committee of Foreign Relations. The name and the charge having been published in other quarters, and the matter being no longer a secret, it may be as well to Bay in the outset, that Senator Al len is strongly suspected of having furnished the editor of the Timet with the raw material of his ' Blue Beard disclosures But upon this subject, an ' another good-natured IYispero, who also seems to | have taken the fictitious blue-bottle with the avidity of a gudgeon, may be better conversant. Certain it is, that when Mr. Mangum, yesterday, mention ed ttiat the reason why he sanctioned the resolution for a committee, was that one of the firm of the pa per indicted has proclaimed as his authority for nis charges of corrupiion, a member of Con.grett? " what !" exclaimed a Senator on the democratic side?and the voice to us sounded like Mr. Allen's. We looked in the direction of the Senator's seat; but there was nothing in the expression of his coun tenance to indicate alarm, excepting, perhaps, that his cheek,always pale, may have been a little paler? the shock was so sudden, you know. Besides, by common consent, a number of inquisitive eyes, as well as Mr. Mangum's, were turned simultaneously with his declaration, in the direction of the Senator from Ohio. Now, we know that, from Mr. Mangum's position in the chamber, when he rises to speak, his face is necessarily opposite to that of the leader of the Spartans. It was undesigned and unavoidable with him, aadperhaps equally involuntary with a score of others. Mr. Hannegan was not present, nor was Mr. Ilaywood, nor was Mr. Colquitt?a remarkable co-incidence of absenteeism, though entirely acci dental. The fact is, though we would endorse at this moment, us cheerfully as Ave years ago, the innocence of Senator Allen in the premises, he must have known that he was suspected. This was enough to startle a high-minded Senator, and send his blood freezing through his arteries. The an nouncement, by Mr. Mangum, of the authority of a member of Congress, was, therefore, tantamount, by construction, to a personification of the indivi dual. The consequence of a real breach of faith and honor on the part of a Senator, if convicted, would, of imperative, inexorable necessity, be his prompt and unconditional expulsion from the body. That s the long and the short of it. There would be no other alternative?no modification or palliation of the penalty. Now, we don't acknowledge to the practice of looking behind the record, nor do we assume the supernatural faculty of clairvoyance; but had we been in Mr. Allen's place, at the time of Mr. Man gum's remarks, something like the following would nave been our train of thought i "A member of Congress, hey 1 You can't believe it possible to be a member of the Senate; but I know you distrust me for all that. Colquitt distrusted me, when he lashe d me over the shoulders of poor Robinson. You know that I am radical on Oregon, as upon every thing else, but particularly upon Oregon ; you be lieve me a candidate for the Presidency, and that my chance depends upon defeating a * compro mise: ' you believe me an unprincipled demagogue? that I consider the means aa justified by the object; you believe me to be the founder of the Daily Timet ?that I paid for it- that it is ray psper, and that the editor is my man; you believe, in fact, that I trumped up this story as a last despairing resort." Well, we must say, that under this unfortunate con juncture of circumstances, it was quite natural mat Mr. Allen should exhibit, in the very effort dis guise it, some concern at the " reason ' of the sena tor from North Carolina. . ,. /That Mr. Allen u guilty we cannot believe. No man, to our personal knowledge, even with hie po litical frienda, iscloeer-moulhed. regardiug tbecoo fldenoe ol a Senator and of the^aiM, than the York State as Consul to British Guiana. So accep table was hit name, that it waa taken up out of the regular order, and confirmed unanimously. * Pxosrno. Washington, D. C., March 11,1846 As the debate advances in the Senate, the issuo of the great question becomes mors doubtful sad uncertain. All the old party lines of the day are broken to pieces by this Oregon controversy A new formation must take place, for I do not believe it is in the power of any man to reconstruct the same materials which brought Mr. Polk into power. There is a mystery about the intentions and pur poses of Mr Polk-there is ? mvrtsrvebom tirepur
