This is not a solitary instance, and therefore he asks, " if the New Postal Convention he all humbug!'' putting the question to in, he says, because we stated some months ago that we had a^tlied to the Postmaster General in London, on the subject of the convention We did so, and having now received aa answer, the correspondence, is subjoined. With such assurance, following upon the notifisution iwued both by the i Postmaster General of the United estates, and by j the Pnttmaster of Hong Kong, our correspondent ; inust be a pattern of patit uce to use uo hirshcr j term than " humbug'' to ihe d-tention of papers for which money has been t.iken under false pretences.

Dr. GuUlati, the grett Chinese iravriler, ha* laid interesting details ot the elate ot China before ihe London Suiti&tical Society. He confirmed trie uccouuii liitht-rio given of liie extern of the popiU* i iion of the " Fiowery Laud." The area ol Cfun.t pr->t?er is, it neems, ab.mt l,2?W,000 souare ?about three-tifths of ilie extent ot the Kusrian empire, or two-tililu of the size of Australia. The iiopuUtion is said, at present, to <iniouut to 3fi7,0U0,(K>0 ; and thin it is that seems , '.ncredible to an European unnerst inding. lint, I compared with the spice occupied, it is not so ex- | cessive as, at first sight, it appears. It leaves room <or about two and oue-tlurd acres of share to each living person ; and in England and Wales, the ave- I rage is rather lest?about two acres per head. It ia true tut, in some provinces of the empire, the , nutation return* give an average of more than 700 1 persona to the square rule. Hut, by the last census, mir own county of Lancaster had about H)0 i>er (K|Uare mile ; not to sj>e.ik ol' Middlesex, which i ?ias an average of 600, or of Surrey, which has | about 700 per square mile It is also to be observed , that these densely peopled parts of Cmna are on the sea coast, have beeu penetrated by Kuropeom, : are well known to be very fertile, and in every way well lilted to alford a lar^e amount of subsuten :e to their inhabitants. The Chinese r* turn* of the land subject to tax, as uaed in rice cultivation, ?tve nearly half an 'icre ot such land to each livtug y#rton; t-n'J ?re are assured that, in the southern and well-watered protiuces, it ia auything but un- | Common to tike two crop* of rice, one ol wheat, and one of pulse, from the same land, lu a single . *< ason. Now, the whole arable suriace of England and Wales is suid not t.? eju I I 1,000,000 acres, which give* little more than half an acre per krari; and we have also to provide for about 1,100,000 horses and cattle, and 8 000.000 sheep and swine. In China, they keep few horses, the rude labor being pertoiuied chi^ny by men ; they | have few cattle of any description ; even their dogs they mak? aetviceable as tiMid ; and their swine are ' fed only ?>n auch garbage at ?vea they cannot corv> vert to human sustenance in any more direct manam . l>r. Gutxlafi'a description ol ihe financial aflairs of the empire leads to the conclustoa that China is approaching a crisis very ?imii*r to flat which has again and again heralded the (Mimical revolutions a*l European Slates, it seeru* that the reveuue is raised almost entirely by two tax-*?those upon rice grounds and salt; ard that tlunng tile last six or seven rt its the ,>roduce ot these taxes has fallen off to theextrntof nearly one-third of :ta previous amount. l>r.

The Board of War having been desired to con- : sider the report made by inh-tsiun, a Vice-Presi- | dent of tlie board of Revenue, and member of the Censorate, especially direct) d to examine a charge 1 preterred against certain Mongol wllicers, as principals and accessories in acta of gross and long- | continued embezzlement and malversation, pray hit> Majesty to confirm their sentences as follows:? King-chun and K'ai-ling-ah, charged with short payment of the troops, and appropriation of the funds in the treas-ury, to the amount of 900 taels, are, in the first place, compelled to disgorge the money they have made; the lat?#r 'hus escapes the punishment of degradation, 100 blows of the bamboo, and transportation to a distance of 3,0(10, by law to be awarded to those who embezzle the | funiis of a treasury in their charge. K'di ling-iu's i is a worse case, lie is to be handed over to the ' Board of Punishments, to be sent to his destination. Wu-ling-ah wasprivy to the misconduct ot King- j chun, wus otlered a share ot his profits, but li-i l n>>t I received any. Still, as he did not inform against ! him, the Botird, opining that the p0nishm>*ni pre- ' scribed by law, of loss of three steps, and removal ' from his post, is not sufficiently severe, request ! that he be degraded. Sah-lies, who snouldhave known, fromhis sh if in ihe duties ot the principal, of his nkit, but wiu> has been, " lo all upin/urauce, blind and deal," is aUo to be degraded.

KangJiang has, however, hereditary j rank as n field officer of a certaia grade, and should by law lose one-half ot hi* hereditary allowance I lttr nine years, being three years for each step of I 0<-tri <Jh11< n ; it im therefore recommended that he I forfeit the pay, but that the degradation be remit- i ted. Prince Mien-siu, the general officer under whom nil thete thini's had happened without his being uware of it, is i-entenced to t>e fioed a year's pay ; but as his offence is tublic, as was also that of the above named Cblng-Iiang and Siane-chun, it is reqnerted that they be condemned to loose a certain number of ste|?, according to the legal proportion, instead of paying the fine. rtXAN< I AMD wo* as Vang-i-trang, Chief superintendent of river* and canala in this government (which eiteoda over the thiee provmct a of kiangau, Ngan-k wu., and Ktangf>i,) pte?? nts a supplementary memorial to the following effect: In the (kh month of 27tn year (July nndAugust, 1-17,) his predecessor, iVau-siti-n^an, i. ii iep<>rud that the ru?hes on OM MfJlkaovi a? the Wei-tang, where there are two military j well grown.

The foreigner at Au (Macao) had mvle might of his right, and had done evil; h?s h.td lusted after the women, ha had demolished the imperial eastern house, he had set tire to temples, and burned images; he had encroached upon houses and land; had broken o|>en graves aud destroyed the remains of the dead ; the measure of his crimes w ts full to excess ; the gentry and the common people were all enraged at them; they were intolerable in the Hicl'tof the powers of heaven and earth ; and the vllnges adjoining having been, moreover, subjected to the imposition of an unj'ist ti.t, the gentry and elders of thirteen of them had made a joint representation of these 'h'ni,'* to the Governor-Heneral and the Governor. Tneir excellencies could see no good meuns of arresting the calamity, which increased like a fire, burning everyday more fiercely than before ; they were without a ulan fur it* restraint, until they j/ave ear to the proI>osh1 of l'au-tMim, who secretly moved some patri< ts to hind themselves by an oath, s&edding their blood befoie heaven, and appealing to it; nuu endued to ensure their nerteet security throughout the whole (of their undertaking ) Now this w ts projected about the time of tlie Tsiug-ho, in the summer (May,) but there was no opportunity. >>f w hu h they could avail themselves, until the Mofub, (middle of August,) when (one evening) ?t>> at dnik, Miin and Kwoli, nrid five others from C'muchau-fu, went deep into the tiger's den, with sharp weapons concealtd about thein ; and th>*y stabbed the commandant (head of soldierr) and took nwuy his head and left hand ; while his follower, who was ruling wiih him, beinir also wounded, tl'd.

We fear that they will be hard to appeas*. The example of the late Governor-General, Keying, who d'-alt leniently in the case of 11 wang-chuh-ki, might have been followed. How should the barbarians of Au have been the wiser (had another been caused to Hitler instead of th* real criittiinlt) Men say of the Governor General, that he has made buiiself terrible by the excellence of his count e is; but the truth is, that he fears the barburisns as he would a tiyer, while our own in-ople, on the other hand, he regatds us flesh, which he | shares (with those without,) who dispute with him, who shall swallow the mo*t (or th? fastest).

TheUtnrral Banklaf Law, J lie recent developments made, showing th* fraudulent management of the State Hunk ut Morris, nnil other similar institutions in other States of the I nton, very nut urn lly suggests the propriety of directing public attention to our own system ot banking The treat bank charter of ilns State is the gea*' ral (tanking law of ISiH. The pet.pl? hare wisely adopted it in the new constitution The old safety fund banks are wheeling into line rs rapidly a a their charters expire, it cannot be deemed inopportune, while the biuk< of our neighboring States aie breaking <lown aud rusntng Iiunuir4wand thousands, to suggest what we deem import -nt featured in our system. The 'treat conservative principle, which, for tweHty years, has upheld, and ?till sustains, the sale and lieabliv action of our system, is the Hern mandate of our law, ?* that no ba!*k shall i>?\?e negotiable na|ier payable on time." I ?ur policy ha? bet 11 to eradicaJe ihe pernicious |?ost not.- system. As early as 1K<J>, the issue, by hanks, of any bill it note not payable on demand, witliout interest, was positively prohibited. Here lic-ts the safety of the Bti>"kh<>lder and tli public. If our court*, by a manly and firm tone, administer this law, and our |ei>isi.itr?re do not swerve in maintain.ig it upon ibe statute book, we are ?fe from bunk explosioos. If the jrenwl influence ot judicial expoJtion shall harmonize with the intention of the legislative power, there will be no tiuilict in practice, and tlierrouthc rights and interests id" (lie stockholders i an securely repote. Let i ;? evasion of t!*is Uw, by the bank.1-' f>l this State, ctrcur, and the biilliolder nd the stockholder will be aafe. The prohibition f promises to (>ay ut a future day, and ilie abligalon to pay on mar.d, without interest, prevents uiiiiipu intode bt?represses the spirit ot speculation md wild schemes.
