Yes, a great battle may haro been fought

The rostnl Money Order.
The instruction to Postmasters, Clerks, ic.)
required in the operations of the money order
system, authorized under the act of Congress of
the 17th of May last, hae been mainly prepared
by the Post Office Deportment, and are now in
the bands of tbe public printer. Tba preparation
of tbc instructions was found to be a work of ex
ceeding intricacy, tbe principal embarrassment
being the want of a ceutral Me(roolltan Hank,
with local branches to facilitate the prompt re
turn of the fuuds accumulating in the bands of
rostmasteii, or to supply funds iu case of neces
sity. Iu F.ugland and in Canada, when a money
order Is in successful operation, they have these
bank advantages, but in this country it has beeu
found necessary to adopt substantially the Pott
Office Department System of drafts and deposits,
tislng tko Tost Oilice in lieu of banks. It is con
fidently expected that this arrangement w ill meet
all tbe requirement. Ccrtaluly It i the only
one which can be mado under the existing laws.
The design of (be Department is that operations
ball commence on the Ut of October, aud bo
e Boils will be spared to accomplish the com
mencement of the system at that date.
