NOTICES OF NEW PUBLICATIONS. Tfce It oh a til* and Reality of the Pat oflBee. Tun Yeabk a mono the Mail Baoh; or, Note* from the Diary of a Special Agent of the Poet Office Department, by J. Holbrook. Cowpertbwait A Co., I'biladelphia; J. C. Derby, New York. The pamphlet of Mr. Pliny Miles, which we noticed a week or two ago, gave aa a full insight into the general administration of our Post Office sys tem, bat there is a portion of i a woiklng, of which the writer could know bat little, and whic h forms not the least interesting und instructive chapter in its history. We allude to that apparent looseness of su pervision and general negligence on the part of some of the agents of the Department whit h lead to the fre quent abstraction of money I Yon) letters, and some times even the Iosk of the mail bags themselves. This lantnt has Just been tilled up hy a gentleman thorough ly initiated in all the mysteries of these transactions, and in every way competent to throw light upon them?Mr. Holbrook, for many years special agent of the Poet Office Department. He has given us a very entertaining and valuable book. His object, as nay be Buppftseri from his position, is not in any way to cast discredit on the department. He was induced, he states, to undertake the task " by the hope and belief that while it afforded interesting matter for the general reader, it might prove a public benefit, by increasing the safety of the United States mails, and fortifying those officially connected with the Post Office und mail service against the peculiar temptations incidcut to their position, thus preserv ing to sreiety some, at least, who, without such warnings as the following sketches contain, might muke shipwreck of tbeir principles, and meet with a felou's doom." Without acquiescing altogether in the probability of the hopes thus expressed, we are bound to con cede to Mr. Holbrook'? narrative of his Post Office experiences the merit of being an exceedingly interesting and suggestive book. Taken in coo junction with the pamphlet of Mr. Miles, this pub lication is calculated to be of the greatest use at the present in< ment. Mr. Holbrook tells his story plainly, in good taste, and without any affectation of literary pretension. The volume is embellished with some very well drawn aud neatly executed steel and wood engravings. Among others are por traits on steel ot all the Post Master Generals from Osgood to Campbell. The following extracts will give an idea of the general character of the book:? ?ome jeers ago ths l'oat Office of a prominent city In Western New York became involved in * series of mall depredations, and at length it was apparent that Bono one of the three clerks w 10 had slept in the office must be guilty ot committing them; but the fastening of the charge upon the delinquent was a thing yet to be accom plished. By various processes, the range of suspicion was narrowed down till it rested upon onu of the clerks, and it only remained to get the legal proof of his gailt. Pack (gen were missed that were known to have reach ed the office by the midnight mails. The elerks took turne io getting up to reoeive these mails, each one por ta), mtng hi* duty for a week in succession, the one who for the time attended to it sleeping on a cot in tbe Cost office proper, ano the other two occupying a small apart ment at some little distance from the main office, but connected with It. It had also been ascertained that ths package* were abstracted from a (Articular mail pouch wbich arrived with many others about midnight, anil remained unas sorted till morning. On a certain occasion, when the suspected els rk wo* upon duty, an exact description of evtnrhing hi '.hat (touch watt taken, upon the cars from the West with the view of competing the list of its con tent* with the p?at b its which should be found on tbe flies of the office tbe following uioinlng, simitar bills having heretofoic''U? pjusered with the packages. As 1 had before this had good reason to know that ma gts ratei aad jurors in'hat section of the country very propei iy required pretty concln,ire evidence for convic tion in such caves. I determined, in eddliijn to other ex pedients, to take the poet of private watchman tn-ids the office, for one night at least, that I might obtain, by ocu lar demonstration. sufficient proof agiinst the guilty one to satisfy tbe most incredulous court and jury. One of the unsuspocte! clc-ks was cent avay that night, and the other, in whom I had the utmost confi dence, was apprise,! of my intentions. By him I was let into the office through a private door, ^ofore the object of oor machinationt had entered, and T was net long in selecting a suits I,I* place whore 1 could see without being seen, behind an open door leading from tbe p >*t master'i private room.

It was not long before the Individual arrived who was t~> be honored with my scntiuy dating the lire-long night: and as he "wrapt th? drspery of bis couch about hliu," I could nut avoid making a momentary com pari son hetwren the luxury about to be enjoyed by him and 'ha wearisome hours upon which I was eoterirg Well?

The proverb says that "a great desl can be seen through a small tude." My sphere of vision, however, was rather Hmiied, embracing only a portion of the a> joining room, faintly lighted by a hanging lamp?the cot with its sleeping burden, a table, and the dimly neon tiers of letter noxes forming a bur.ground. Entirely in keeping with this scene of "s.lil lite," was the mono tenons bun of sundry flies of rowdytsh disposition, who, not content with ticklicg the ne-e-. of peaceable ckiaens, and otherwise harrassing iheus during the day, must needs ' keep it up" through the hours devoted to repose by insects oi more steady habits.

Now, sneezing is an operation which admits of no compromise. You must either "go the whole hog," or entirely refnin. Any at tempt to reduce the force of the e\plod..n is as unavail ing as was the Irl-hman's effort to - flreal/y" when ho was touching off the ewnnon.

Alter a while however, a renewal of thesnoring, which was occasionally echoed by the occupant of the adjoining room, easutod me ol the absence of beiUgeren' intentions; end the hutting of the files before mentioned, with tho ticUng nt a clock in the oBice, were the only additional sounds that broke upon the sl.enoe.

The c e.k, in the bedroom, jumped from his bed and passed by me, to open the door. Tearing that I should bs discovered. I darted into the bedroom, wt hout his knowl.dge, and hefoie he hod teturned. The truth is, he was not more than lislf awake, and had forgotteu mo entirety. He had admit!ed a c lured man to get the hoots which re quited his jiollahlng touch, and then returned to bed ogatn. This gentleman of color, who by the way proved to bo a trusty porter employed in several of the offices In the building, prneeiden Drat to the side of the cot to get the hoo's there, and then made for the bedroom, into which I had retresied.

Whether it was flight at the touch of the tenanted hoot, or something else, that made him leave the premises so suddenly, 1 have never been fully sntiaflel. I out myself soon alter, leaving both cletks fa-t aaleep. W hat occurred ou that night beyond that which I have already described, or how the Investigation terminated, I am confidant the reader wtU nut luslst upOn knowing, when I assure him that there are special reasons, affect ing public as well as private interests, why I should mare no further disclosures. Though this was not the last night whl -h I have spent in post offices for similar purposes, yet I have never ie psated the expet lment under circumstances requiring quite io severe reetraiits, and such abridgment of per sonal liberty. CHBATINU TiffS CbKltOT. Our collection of "outside" delinquencies would be incomplete, were we to omit the following caae, which was investigated by the author not long ago, and iu which not a little Ingenuity, of the baser sort, was dis played. It will serve as a specimen of a numerous class of cases, characterized by attempts to defraud some cor respondent, and to fatten the blame of the fraud upon ? some one connected wl h the Post office. We could aire many inatancea of a similar kind, did our lliults permit. A person of gixd standing in tne community who laid claim not only to a mural but a religious character, was vi-itii g In a U'ge town on the Hudson river, about mid way between New York and Albany. This person owed a clergyman, living iu New Haven, Connecticut, the sum of one hundred dollars; and one day he call ed at the house of another clergyman of his acquaint ance In the town llrst mentioned, aud requested to be allowed the privilege of writirg a letter there to his clerical creditor, h the stun due that gentleman wis to be enclosed. Willing materials were furnished, at d he prepaicd the letter in the study of his obliging fiiemt and iu his presence. After he ha' finished writing it no said to the clergy man, "Now, as the mails are not always safe, I slab to be able to prove tbat I lutve ac;unlly sent the money. 1 shall therefore consider It a great favor If you will a: . empsnj me to the bank, where I wt h to obtain a hun cied dollar note for soma small trash that ! have, aud Iwar witness that I enrlose the money and deposited the letter in the post office." The reverend gentleman readily a-ceded to his request and weut with hint to the hank, where a bill of the re quired denomin ation was obtained aud placed in the let ter, which wat then soiled with a wafer, the clergyman all the while looking ou. Ihev then went t.r tne Post office, (which was directly opposite tne nank.) and alter calling the attention of his amjiaidon to the letter and its address, the writer tHeie ol dropped i> into I he letter box, and thp two persons went their several ways. The letter airived at New Haven, by due course of mall, and It so happened that the clergyman to whom It was addressed was at the l ost office waiting for the as sorting of the mulls, lie saw a let or No-own into his b<x. and called for it as soon as tbedelive-y wind iw was opened.
