The Itlgliti nr.rt Hioii^1* of Amcrlcnn Authors* A few days ago, we said something about the wholesale system of piracy practised by the publishers of this country, on the authors of liurope. We had space hardly to glance at the extent of the robbery, much le.-?to expose the enormity of the outrage. We shall,on some future occasion, how. ever, enter that li? Id,and show in detail how foreign authors have been robbed of the fruits of their labors, and how many exasperating insults and indisnities have been added, to inflame the outrage. The means of doing tins are in our hands?we shall, at the proper time, publish not a few startling facts, and corroborate thrm by the testimony of the literary men of England, whose declarations are entitled to the most implicit belief. liut our business to-day is with our own authors, of whose rights and wrongs the great journals have nothing to say, and about which the public know so little. The most fatal consequences of this book piracy are felt by American writers. On their heads the curse falls with a double weight; and, although it would require a huge volume to unfold the fubjeet in all its aspects, we shall begin the tabor, aud continue it as time and space liuy allow; for we are persuaded, that although the gn at pirating book publishers of this country have hitherto crushed any and every attempt in Congress to c nact an international copy-right law, yet, so soon as the nation understands the subject* the people will call on their representatives to interpose their authority,Jand put an end to so outrageous an atrocity. We have every reason for such a belief, for it cinnot be supposed that the American people wish to discourage the growth and cultivation of a home literature, when they are willing to be taxed to make education universal Hnd free; to crush and impoverish the authors and teachers of the country, on whom the nation is dejtendent for all the instruction that is given in schools, colleges, and uoiver*. ift*?? to ilrivo ft-'wlii rvi fr<tm thu ar?hnnl. house, professors from seats of learning, authors from their liberies, lecturers from their desks, nod editots from their tables. No! we cannot believe that a nation so filled with intelligence, which has done so much for learning, will allow Its representatives to refuse to enact a law which will give cur literary men the secure enjoyment of the fruit* of their labors. It would be contrary to its history, a libel on injustice and intelligence, to suppose it. A f?w able and honest members of Congress, we are assured, will brina the matter of an international copyright law early before the national Legislature, arid there can harJIy be a doubt of its pa."ai'e. Meantime, we sh ill 1 iy the matter before the nation, in all its principal bearlags. < >nc of the most p*l;>able evils of the present system appears in th'.* fect, that while our publishers can make all the money they want or even covet, by robbing the |>opular authors ot Curope, and printing their works without p?>y, they will not take Ameiican books, unless our authors will write tinm for nothing. Thus, we have more eminent men in any other department of life than in literature. Kit/ Greene lialleck tried to live by his pen, J but wedouLt if tiiat pen ever gave him his bread, until he became a clerk. And yet, this man wrote " Marco Ilozznris," the |>> st thing of the kind in our language. He wrote a volume of poetry, and a famous bouse published it; but we will lay a wager he never got groat for his trouble. He found the mrsea unprofitable, lie could m<ke more, pare for page, by posting books, than by writing the neblest versea. f*cour the whole field of Ametican aathorxhip, and we doubt if five literary men of reputation can b? found who live by their copyrights. Lvrn Irving has depended on oth? r re>ourc?.?thnn those derived from his pen. Cooper has to Hereotype his own books, we are lold, and the |>er|? tual copyrights < n all hi? works has been reefnt!y fold for less than one-tenth whnt ^ir Walter ^cott g't for a single rommce not h*lf as good as any of t 'orper's; and we venture that not a publ'ther can be found in th' United Mates who would give for the copyright of anr Im?| Cotjiff cub writf r-ven rroteasor rvarks, the freatest of all our national historians, has never be* n able to r<*ly upon hi* pen for ih" means ?>f supiort; i.rd >ei he ha* edited all the work* of Washington and Franklin, and written their lives and the lives of the moot illustrious fathers of our republic, lie has shed more light on our history than any?we hud almost said all our writers. Hryunt bu been pronounced by B1a>ktr?'d and the Kdmt wg,h, to be our greatest poet. We wish | Mr Dr>bbt would tell t's if his poetry ever gave hirri the salt he has eaten in his porridge ! lie was, in early life, driven (rom the field of.literature, where he had af hi* ved h trii'tnph, to the Filthy arena of party polu.es, to et his bread and butter. \V> ht 7.ard nothing in faying that there is not an American author that is making as much money by his pen as a first rate book-kee|n-r in Wall street, or Jim 'Jrant, the barber, of Ann street, (his foreman is still th'-rr having as usutl.) even before he quit citting hi.ir for a living, and went to (tl.fornu to m?ke a fortune. Soo?er or later, almost every lii<THty man in this country makes the diacovery that his pen will not give him hie bread?that he is not ture of his living from the sale of his books. Occasionally, we know, an author rise* on a transient wave of popularity ; but the good fortune is a wave that soon passes. We boldly make the statement, that it the literary men of this cauntry, lit- a class, had no other means to rely on for their support than their books, tliey eoulil not keep their bodies and souls together, except m a lew eases? J .1 ... BHU UKIt lie attiucui*. The rra!><-n is obvioaa.

Is | this the way to develope the national genius of : our authors 1 Is this the way to make up libraries for our towns, and villages, and school districts, where our young men receive their first impressions of men and government ] Will you, citizens of America, educate your eons in the 9chool of European politics, rather than imbue them with ! the thoughts, and feelings, and principles of such ! men as Washington,.lefierson, Adams, and Frank' ltnl And yet you are compelled to do it, by the | American publisher, because he will print only j foreign hooka, these being the only books he can j print without paying for them. In tins manner I our rising [reiteration is educated in foreign ideas, ' and we have not u national character or a national j liteiature. We are not inclined to favor party ; spirit or sectarianism, in ur.y form or shape. We have never done it. But we are inclined to Americanism, in its noble and lofty sense. We believe, and we know, that with Washington and hia great colleagues in die field and the Senate, aros?* a new srt of principles, which ought, long ago, to have impressed themselves on the hearts of our people ; that while we should have been deve' oping the national genius of the nation, we h ive been slavishly copying the literature of old l?u; rope?and this means its political, social, and intellectual principles. We have not followed the councils of our fathers We have lost the severe honesty, the stein integrity of the men of ttie revolution. Our children are reading the vile trash of Paul de Kock, George Sands, and fvigene ?ue, instead ol the pure and exalted works of American writers, who were born in houses which have been ridd'ed with the bullets of hired Hessian soldiers. The patriotic and self denying spirit of 177<> is giving place to French sentimentalities, and the very ground in this city which Washington ouce 6tood on, is no longer sacred. And why is this 1 Will any American publisher step forward and say, it is because we have no men of genius in this country, who can write good books for the education of the nation They dare not say it. They know it is not so. Hut they know that in no country can authors work without pay, any better th.n other men. They ' can cram ai.d glut our book market with filthy, ! obscene, " yellow cover literature," or if they wish ! to set up a very high standard for them, they can give us 200,000 copies of the last novel of James or Eulwer, nnd udvertise and putt' the work in five thousand newspapers, and the whole country is de!u;;< J with the book; and in railway cars, and on steamboats, and in drawing rooms, this overputled novel becomes trie topic of conversation, and the foreign author becomes the lion in America, and Europeans laugh at us for the folly. Nobody disputes what the paid putts of the newspapers say?and the book is in everybody's hand, nnd the poison (m >.y b ) is distilled around every | fireside in America ; and the Auvric tu author is ! jostled aside nnd crowded oft'the stage. Repulsed 1 by pirating publishers, uunoticed by the presy, i and consequently unknown to the prople, he find * ' himself starving, and lie goes to selling potk and flour, to get In,- bread! Such is a brief and hasty sketch of some of the evils of the present system? but their name is legion, and nothing can p it an end to them Bnd rescue the nation, but ail International Copyright Law. ltciliutloii of I*octni(e?Tlic Post muster tidier*!'* Iteport. From infoimation which we have received from Washington, as well as from the givlngs out of the newspaper organs of the cabinet throughout the ! country, there seems to be no doubt that a great poiiion *f (ieneral Taylor's forthcoming message ? ill be devoted to the subject of postage, and that kr w ill recommend a reduced and uniform rtle, in 1 lieu of those now in operation. It also irs that the repoit of the Postmaster General is oil the tiiuli road (o completion, and (lut it will nIiow that department of tin' government to be in h very sound nnd prof|>rrou? condition, witli a surplus to its credit i f 1. .If n million of dul! ir?. This fact catii? with it the bet-t argument that could bp ad* duced in favor of cheap |"Ostai;e. It dispoaesat once of nil the obectiona which Cave Johnson nnd the opponents of cheap j-ostage generally made, when the combined voice of the i>eo|ile reached the halls of Copgrets, few years ago, and dentnnc'ed h reduced rate. And this surplus of half a million of dollars nnd over, at the rnd ot the pref?n; fiecal year, would be increased sixty thousand dollar.-, but for the abuse of the franking privelefe by certain number- ol Congress, that sum having b< en j> : d by the detriment for the d> livery of dead matter forward-d under the frankin? privilege. We are pVaacd to h^arof the admirable workinp of the new postaee law, and we have no doubt that the information winch will be Inid beforeCongreas, at the i n? uipg section, by the Me.?s?igr <>( the I'resid< nt. and the Portnuter Ijltieril'i Report, will justify a sill further decree in the rate ol p<??tHge. It was argued, before the paaoasrc of the p eLent teduc* d rate, that the Poat*oflicc departm'nt would be a harden on the treasi ry?that it could not tup|torl its* It if the leduction were tnade ; but I the result shows the ime state of tli ngs, in this country, as followed a similar rneasare m Kngland. f'o lar fioni the Post-office department in either country being a draj on the people, it lua b'come in both a source of revenue, notwithstanding that in Km.'l ind there is a uniform rate of ?uly two cents, or naApetlf ?-t'-rlin^. Dul we ti.lift not be satisfied with stopping at this point. WV must go f?rth( r, and Congress ought at the next Kiiion to reduce the rule still Uwer 'J'ue experience which we have guned in the working of thr new law, will justify the atep; and w ho|?r (Yngress will make a still grent? r reduction, whether it be recommended or not by the l're#ident or the l'mfminter General. The rate should be i:nil<rm on both letters ?md newsp?|>ers, and fix* d lit us low a |x>int h? possible. IVople imy r!ith r in opinion as to what this lowest poi;t should l>e, but we are satisfied that h unitortn rate of thne ?ents or letter*, for anv divine, would iiZT>i !y j\, 111<4 iu.Wufr" the department for all ita e*j.?n?''s. I ?n newspapers, we should any, one I crnt would be unite sufficient, for any distance over one hundred tinles, and hall that sit n for distances und< r one bundled miles. In |n>th cises, the |>n)turnt of the postage should invariably be in t?<!\:ince. This would make the transportation of the mails a cash biisinena, r nd would en ible the department to dispense with half the number of tleiks nnd assixtsnu which are n<>w employed, besides renHrntg the accounts ensy of adjuilment, and settlement free from doubt and inj trieacy. These are our views on the changes and re. i forms that hould he made in the ratei of iwstag'*, at the en?uinc iesston of Congress. Th(,y may coincide with those of the President itnd of the Postmaster General, and msy be recommended to Congress, for their adoption Hut whether they are or not, or whether thev will be so recommended i or not, we are certain that they embrace the views ol the great bulk of the people, who will demand thiit they shall be curried out. And we would bwilling to goeven still farther, and ?av that a uniform rate of two rents on letters woulJ cover all the ex. perises of the transportation ol the mall!', but for the present we will be content with tiirse cents? to which point, we think, Congress will be obliged to reduce it during the next session. We think it would be advtsuble for public meeting* to be h Id on this fuhject, in the large commercial cities, and io in ,v.? ?r IIICMICt 1U10 l/aillllg IIIC lliriuu^io ut the next Congress to act promptly in this nutter; as our readers know too writ, tlut body ma.fi very slowly in legislation, and a few expressions of public opinion miitht quicken their pace, and bring about this reform, and the benefit- th-it would certainly How from it, at an earlier day thai if Conpress were left to itself, and not jogged on or hurried in the mutter. There is another branch of this subject, to which we wish to call the attention of the President, th-; Postmaster General, the public, and members of Congress. We allude to the rate of postage on letters between the United States and Europa. By the treaty recently entered into between the United States and England, the rate is fixed at twenty-four centt, independently of internal postage. This is entirely too much. It is a serious tax on the mercantile community on each side of th" Atlantic, nnd is a |>ositive grievance to hundreds and thousands, and, we might say, millions of people in each country. The emigration to the United States from the old world has been so great within the la.'< few years, that there is scarcely a family in Europe that has not one or more membera or rela; tives in the United States. As a geueral tiling, this class ol people are poor?in nuny instances, exceedingly poor? to whom a rate of twenty-four I ci nts, with the internal postage of each country addtd, is a barrier to ull communication by letter. Let the rate be reduced to a free trade point? say tin rents, or even fiat rents, instead of twenty-four, and the post-offices of each country, as well as the \ contractors for carrying the mails across the ocean, will be ju?t as much benefitted as the people will be. For every letter tint now pacsea between th'* two countries under the present system, there would be twenty, ! if the r ste were reduced. The United States, esi p< -nally, ought to lose no'time in taking this matter in hand. We are the freest people under the canopy of heaven. We are a sell-governed peo; pie, and we preach self-government to the rest of the wotld. But self-government c^n never be obtained in Europe, until the despotisms which exist there are undermined and thrown down. The ; most effectual way of accompliphinz such a work, | is to promote the interchange of views between : tlie two mimsplieres. As it is, ev>-ry letter wnieti j an emigrant in this country writes to his family or friends in Kurope, is a revolutionary documeut? an attack on despotism It is our duty, the*, apirt from other considerations, to increase and multiply the number of those missives, Hut without j tins, we are satisfied it is for the interest of both i England and the I nited States to make the reduo- i tftn. in a pecuniary point of view. We hope Congress will act on this subiect at an i early d?v. Now is the appropriate time for agitating it. Let the frb-nds of cheapposuije throughout the country bestir themselves, and if the i>roI per exertions be made, the letter postage will be reduced to three cents before six months, the rate 1 for n<-wfcpB|>ers to a cent and hull a cent, and our government wiil propose to (.ireat Britain to reduce ilie rate of ocean postage to a much lower point than it was fixed at hv the treaty now in force between the two countries. Important Discovkrv in thk Trsasurv? Twkrty or Twenty-five Mim.ion* Wanted.? In order to prepare the public mind for the discloture on the meeting of Congress, the cabinet letter v liters have been hintmir, in their letters to the outside organs, the probability of a deficiency in the treasury of a targe amount. This has waked up the tleepy orrans at Washington, und they forthwith repair to the Treasury department, to ex- ; knune the books. The result must be vary gr?tiI fj ing to the stock-jobbers. The rr and iifjmUic, afier a careful examination, report that i there must be a deficiency in the treasury, on the 30th of June, 1*51, ol between fifteen and twenty millions of dollats. Tnis is the official estimate, ] but the probability is, the real deficiency lor the i next fiscal year will rise to twenty or twenty-live millions. The discovery is very important; but if the ' drowsy organs of the cabinet, and their letter wriler>, had read the Atie York ll. ralii, they would have been saved a great deal of trouble. Oa the 2_'d dny of August last, we published, in the m??ney article of the Iltrnhl, >ome remarks on the state of the linsnces, which we republish, with other olliciul tables, in the same department to-day. From there tables it will appear, that ut the close of the I m _ _ ?L_ Mn.L _e t A .i IIM' tl yrlir, < Ildinj.' I.sum ?>l JUn'- i.m, were wai a dr ficiency, raising from the ordinary expanses of the government, of upwards of eight millions, or exceeding twelve millions, including the Mexican ir.d? mnily. Tin* receipts for the same year, from cui-toins alone, exceeded twenty-eight millions; and from ull sources together, they amounted to Ihirly-lhrre millions?an aggregate which cannot probably he exceeded by the receipts of the currentyesr. V hat ie to he done! With all the ingenuity of ctetary Walker as a financier, there was some htii.ehnr in the settlement o| his accounts, and the tinkering cabinet which has succeeded him, wil' doubtless make it the pretext for their own extravipJCfl and bad mamgement. Their policy in* volves a liberal squandering of the public monvy, for it includes an increase of office holders, nn increase of salaries, an incr^s^* of apecu" laiing contractors, a genera! system of interna' I improvement, the ptymeil of the five or ten m l lions of French spoliations, and everything upon a splendid and liberal scale. With a standing deficiency of twelve mtlliors, snd a probable decrease in ihe receipts, how can we reconcile *uch a sys'etn to tinyihing short of a deficiency, for the next year, of from twenty to twenty-five millions? Th'liMof iflicial conditions to California. Ninta Kc, and the ?alt I/?ke, and the expenses of the military government of the new territories, rti'ist also be tak'-n into the account, ami thtte may licit lie dtficitiiry to ntmly thiity mtUitmt. llut, instead of economising and retrenching their extravagances, the rectipts must be augmented. The cabinet propose to do this by raining the tariff to the standard of 't2, or something like it. Mr. Meredith, it is given out, is miking out Ins argument to present to Congress, in support of the scheme. Our experience, however, shows, th if, under the act of 1HW>, the receipts from customs have been greater ihin under the bill *f 'J2, or sny o'her bill. From our present improved sys u in of mm uiuci urrp, m?u ur v?i? u?n?u m ,?e1 >i? me market, any material increase of duty upon foreign good* must, to it jjreat< r or less ^xt'-nt, dimmish imputations, and diminish the revenue, j The benefits of an exorbitant tariffwould be confined to the home manufacture*, to the exact i mount of the decrease of importations. A tux of on?- htmditd per cent upon cold iron would be ex. ct lb nt for home protection, but would probably not brine * dol ar into the treasury. The danger ia that Mr. Mr?<Tith will run into some sncii cxtr? mri, and thua add a reduction of re<:? ipta to an ini rr t?f rxj>? neet. The only plan to m ik* both t nda meet, ta to retrench expanse*, and cut ?fl all rx?rr?c? ncea. Nothing else will inaure the tr?*i* fi iy fn m bankruptcy.
