y THE POSTMASTEBSHIP. The Inaide Workings of the New York OfficeInterviews of the Ingoing and Outgoing Postmasters?Interesting Points About the Conduct of the Big Machine?The Improvements To Be In trod need?A Conference Between Postmaster Jones and Mr. James Yesterday? The Conclusions Arrived At?Sinecnres and Political Influence. Postmaster Patrick n. Jones yesterday had an Interview with Mr. Thomas L. James, on the 1st of April next General Jones goes out and Mr. James comes in. The former has held the othce lor lour years, ana in wie nine uaa ?uu ??> <. ?? ? the position Is not so nice a tiling as it is generally supposed to be. The motives were fully detailed in the Hkkai.d lust Muuduy. They do not partake or a political character, as General Jones ts in full accord with the administration, and Is governed In his couduct entirely by private reasons. Mr. James, the Ingoing Postmaster, Is a gentleman who has been lu the Custom House for many years and has a lull knowledge of public duties, l'lie two gentlemen, who are in entire harmony together, met yesterday to discuss matters connected with the Post Oitlco, and the statements made were of a very Interesting character. A i1kkai.ii reporter was present at the conference between them. General Jones began by saying that the New York Post Office, as at present constituted, was eertalnLy deficient in the accommodations needed to do lis large business properly. The accommodations were now just what they were years and years ago, and yet within that time the business hud doubled more than ouce. It was calculated and found true by statistics that the business of the office doubled everv elirht years?that Is. within the time he hud beta iu the cilice only it hail become hair aa large again a> It was. To do the Work needed there were certainly clerks enough. But these clerks had not roetu enough to do their work properly. They were crowded together and almost elbowed each other out or their places, the room wus so wanting there to do their work expeditiously. What, above all IS UBUENIXY NKEOED are carriers?men outside to deliver letters properly and promptly. At present he had 900 men under him?that Is, 319 carriers and the remainder oj^rks. A good many of the latter were at the various stations spread through the city. The 319 carriers were not enough. At least 100 more were needed immediately to do the business effectually, indeed, the public was very indulgent to the many shortcomings of the Post Olllce, lor they really had reason to complain 01 many tilings. At tills point Mr. James asked how the Loudon Tost Olllce was carried on. General Jones said that the London Post Ofllce bad three men to our one, and that therefore London held fully three times our population. This matter must not be considered by population, but by space. New York carriers had more ground to go over a great deal than the London carriers, and this is what made the disparity. TUB MANAliKJlKNT AS IT IS. Reporter?Will the Increase, If It Is made, give as more deliveries? General Jones replied that at present there were eight deliveries made dally down town?that Is below Canal street, and hvo daily up town. That the Increase, besides giving gieutcr promptitude, would cause one delivery more each day. The pay of the carriers, he went on to say, came trom the appropriation given by Congress to the Postmaster General, and that the consent of the Postmaster General would have to be obtained to get this Increase in the force. There might probably be no ditlleultv In getting It If the appropriation were large enougn. But the main trouble was that a lot 01 little country towns were allowed to have carriers which really did not laced them, and in this way the big cities were de?rived of them. The salaries 01 carriers in New orit was $soo a year and oi the clerks never more than $900 and $l,ooo, and this was not much tor men who worked trom seven In the morning to five and six at night. Mr. James?can yon get good men at such salaries as these? General Jones?I don't think so. That is why a great mauy men just pass through here and go elsewhere directly they can better themselves, fins Is the trouble ?f paying such small salaries. The men are all examined by the surgeon of the otlice and proved to be able-bodied men before their applications can be considered. Thou there is a sort oi a civil service examination which they have to go through. 1 have now in my desk there about a hundred applications from various people who have passed through these ordeals. political influence in tuk post office. Afii uni r.n?aic uivv ui'^uiiiiujtuia uuuicij governed by political con-lderatlons? General Jones?1 have my theory about this. I think that after these uicu have been through all the examinations, both physical aud mental, all other things being equal, a mau should appoint another 01 his own political faith in prelerence to one who is not. 1 do not believe in appointing a republican without brains in prelerence to a democrat with brains; but 1 mean, in case both are equally good, I should undoubtedly prefer the republican, and you will, perhaps, agree with me that the republican party has as much brains as the democratic. Kkportkr?Do any democrats apply lor positions? General Junks?1 have not known a single one to apply to me of the democratic persuasion. If they did 1 should of course consider their applications and (with a smile) take the best men. There is one democrat In ttie building down stairs, lie has been here some time. improvements to be made. Mr. James asked wUether there were any changes going on In the Post ottice at present. ' Yes, there Is one," said General Jones. "In regard to the outside malls arriving in the city, on the Eastern and Southern railroad routes we have clerks who go on the early morning trains, one at Philadelphia and the other at New liaven, and, coining in with the trains, they have all the letters assorted and arranged by the time they reach the city. This is a great accounnod.ition, because In cases where letters are destined lor other parts of the country they are placed In boxes and sent on to the other depots witnoiit passing through this otnee at all. In the same war letters which are meant for the upper part of the city go direct ami don't* here. Hut neither ttie Northern nor the Western routes nor the Erie nor the Hudson Kiver have got these postal cars, and just now we are negotiating with Vanderbilt and Tom Scott for arrangements of the kind. I don't mean to say that tnese roads dou'i afford any accommodation, tint tliey don't have the postal cars ou the very trains on which we need theiu?the last morning trains. Hut this will tic soon arranged, no douht, and it will tie a great accommodation and will allow ol letters to the city being delivered much earlier than they would otherwise he." TilK KBVALCATIONS AN1> KMIIK/./.LEMKNT8. The conversation here turned on dedications and embezzlements which have been made In the Host office. General Jones said that it was almost Impossible for a Postmaster to guard against these, lu the case of Norton, Mr. Kelly, the lornier Postmaster. and himself were both liable, himself to the extent ot $80,000. The Knapp affair would probably be arranged all right, and would bring no troabie. But the position of the Postmaster was very dangerous In this particular, and It was difficult to understand how thefts could be prevented. The new registration plan worked well, it was difficult to rob inside the Post Office. These affairs were generally done outside, beiore the letters reached the Post office. Where carriers robbed money from letters it was generally where tliey were addressed to publishers ol papers or to lottery dealers, where the fair inference was that money was Inside the letters. It was not by the feeling that the carriers lound that money was in the letters; but where registered letters were robbed they could tie traced irom hand to hand, it was not very difficult to trace even ordinary letters. The Postmaster, to cover all cases 01 deialcation, had 10 give oonao ui, aim eacu superintendent of a station wan obliged to give the i'ost master bonds In $10,000. These stations worked very well, and would remain as they were after the new 1'ost office Is iu operation. "When will this be occupied?" asked the reporter. ' In abont one year, 1 should judge," said General Jones. "The very lirst thing which will be done will be to get ready the new oillce where the newspaper mails are sorted, because these are tho most bulky. These mails, after being sorted, will be sent by pneumatic tube irom the otlloe direct to the various newspaper oillces. This will save a great deal oi trouble in one of the departments, which must bo attended to with the utmost despatch." SINECURES. "It Is popularly supposed," said the reporter, "that there arc manv sinecures Iti the I'ost Office." "This Is quite untrue. The men in the I'ost Office work hard for their money," answered General Jones. "The work they have to do takes tliein irom eight to eleven hours a day, and during this tltne It Is incessant, in the entire bin ding rliere Is only one, a man over cigiitj-three v< an ol age, who came into the Post Office In this city in 1817 and has hecn here ever since. He is now unable to come down to his duties; but I, for one, do pot care to discharge him." The repvrtcf asked Mr. Jtuuca whether he cvu NEW YC templates mating many change* on his accession t? the office. Mr. James said he cofld nut tell, as he would have to lurther consult with General ] Jones about It; but he would not do away witli a single mau who did Ills warlc well. General Jones aald that when he came In he had to make some changes, as at the time there had been the mixed administration of President JohnBon, but that in many or the changes that were made he found that he had done the wrong thing and took the incumbents back. There was some further conversation on the matter of the office, notably about the boxes, which were voted a nuisance, as General Jones said this work could be much better done by carriers and with less embezzlement than characterized the present system. 1H0RE DUPED EDICR1BTS. Statement* of Some of the Member* of a Party Who Were Induced by Falw Representation* to Go to Brazil. The "olt told tale" of the wrongs of immigrants, who come to this Western World in the hope of realizing their conception of the R1 Dorado,was repeated at the Castle Garden yesterday afternoon by members of a party of Englishmen who had been iuveigled into emigrating hither by the glowing talcs of a land flowing with milk and linnuy. Their story, the gist of which Is printed below, Is that of many others who never have an opportunity of exposing the frauds perpetrated upon them by unprincipled villains, whose consciences are not above any means of making money, no mutter bow villauous the plan. From affidavits in the possession of the Commissioners of Emigration it appears that some time in September, 1872, there were circulated In Liverpool un<l its suburbs circulars which purported to bo Issued by a Brazilian colonization society, slating that unprecedented Inducements were ottered by the company to those wishing to emigrate to south America. The inducements were these:?A Ireo passage, seventy-live acres of laud, a house and ?2 a iiead lor all over ten years 01 age. Having faith in these inducements, a partv of 253 persons organized to start lor Brazil. The first representation proved genuine, lor they were brought thither free ol expense ou the steamship John Rider, which left Liverpool on the 2i?th or November last and arrived in Kio Janeiro December 23. The deponents, Reuben Walker, Henry 1'agh and James Millard, state that the lure on the way out was tolerably good, but ulso that they experienced the truth of the adage that "Hod sends us food and the devil cooks." When they arrived In Itlo they were sent on a liver boat 350 miles to a port called Cauuetie, in the province of St. l'aulo. After arriving there they were left for a whole day without food or water. The next day the whole party were lodged in a mud hut which was without a stick of turniture and all, men, women and children, had to huddle together on the tloor. In this place they remained for twcnty-iour days. On the tweutlerh day a delegation went up to the colony, which was about fifteen miles oir, and had a conversation with Mr. Mallow, tho manager ot the colony, who Inioruicd them that lie did not want them and had no place for thcin. During nil tills time tney had no cooking utensils, and their fare was very poor. On. the twenty-fourth day 185 were sent back to Kio and tlie rent to Mcnuez, a town aooui uinety-iive unii-s distant. Of the 268 who left Liverpool thirty-two died, thirty-five came to New York per steamship Merrimnc, which arrived yesterday, and the rest remained behind, it is the opinion of those who have come here that those left behind are c?*sldcrahiy dinilnlshed in numbers, as many of them were ill when last seen. Thomas Litham and Thomas Fell also make affidavits, In which they state that thev were Induced to go to lirazli by similar inducements, nouc of which were lulliUed. MARRIAGES AND DEATHS. Married.
