should be understood to mean the part; com
pactly built up, except Kensington and Richmond, each
of which has a Poet Office of its own. The Kensington
Postmaster has 'mad) such arrangements as will make
his district confute, in all particulars, to this system.
' , The charges for the delivery of city lettere will bo the
ammo', therefore, in the Kensington district as in other
parts of the city, via, two rents will pay for a letter to

The system is to be put operation on Tuesday,
A' Bet of the places where United States Mall bops
are located will be published in a few days.
' Like every invasion of an old routine, in a vast estab
lishment like the Post Office, this change may create
some temporary embarrassment, and net work perfectly
for a few days or weeks. It may, therefore, require
some short indulgence from the public. No effort, how,
ever, will - be spared on my part to secure the perfect
working of a system which experience elsewhere has
shown to be so beneficial to the public; and which I
have no doubt will soon be regarded here also as a
great progress in postal business.
I respectfully ask the co-operation of the citizens of
Philadelphia in behalf of the new system.

THE ATLANTIC CABLE. •
The original plan of laying down the Atlan:43-,
tic Cable, by depositing it on the plateau 0; '';.
which the ocean-waters ebb and flow, has fails4,"'
so far, and though the experiment will be ,rat r ..
peated, next year, there . are many doubts Ai)
its success. Under such circumstances, thertii,
can be no harm, at all events, in entertaintaidl
some of the suggestions thrown out by practil
cal or scientific men. We therefore subM, .`
as a suggestion, liable to objection and 01
cession, a plan which has been brought and 5 ,
our notice, and certainly, if practical:Oa, 'fait,
many advantages. It arose out of a convoratt
tion between a lieutenant of the United Ste*
Navy, and an English gentleman, ylit Is, ill,
business in this State.
The Cabie, it is evident, must have tve()
mini—onehas been determined upon at Valelo
tie, in the South of Ireland, the other at SA
John's, Newfoundland. We Will take St!
John's and Valentia as tho two points to'
Connected by the Sub-Atlantic magnetic Gabler
Instead of laying down the cable on the
teen of the Atlantic, with its great variationli,
of depth, it is suggested to place it suspend 4
in the ocean, at an uniforth dfstartce 'or deptlt
of forty feet below the inarfllce:.:T,hllo4;
tance, it is assnmed t vicathil' , bo .- ,deciketiotig4-
7 1m1O! the Chance of inierterefice or agy•,kll4l
from sailing ;vessels or steamers.
The manner of suspending the cable Is the
difficulty. Our friends suggest that a scrim!. Of
buoys, each at the uniform distance of half or
even quarter of a mile, should be pineal :1i
such communication with the submerged cab*
as to support it, all through, at the requl
depth. Thus the Ocean highway, etral
across from shore to shore, would ac
be indicated to the eye. A small fl.
tached to each of the buoys would snMe
attract attention, and point out the lino
telegraphic communication to all vessels •
It is contended, also, that by means
buoys, any defect in the telegraphic wire
readily be pointed out, and easily reined
repaired. Nothing would be easier ti
ascertain where the hitch lay, and the
locality discovered, to raise the lino at
quired point and repair, or renew it,
Each buoy would have to be ilumbered,,
at, no matter how unsuitable the are
stances for taking the neeossary obeervati
a vessel which arrived at any buoy, •
enough to establish its identity, could e
her place at sea readily ascertainedt7 ,of
exactly, perhaps, for wind and tide xi •:1 - r ;be
expected to carry the buoys occasiu4:"
low or above the exact latitude; but a vesiel
in distress, unable to ascertain where she Was,
coming in view of one of these buoys, would
be enablmlto form a generally accurate idea
of the latitude and longitude into which 'she
might have drifted or been driven. The'
charts, of course, would have to he improved
by the addition of the buoyed line aortas,
with the number of_ each buoy marked upon
it, for the purpose of identification.
Another advantage might result from this
project. Each buoy should itself be in magne
tic communication with the lino whit& it
helped to sustain. If each ocean-stein:ter
carried with her a galvanic battery, nothing
would be easier, it is submitted, than; on
reaching ono of these buoys, to establibh a
communication with either terminus. 14tui,
her exact position at sea, at any particular
day, hour, and minute, could be transmitted"
to Yolanda, or St. John's, or to both'placas—r
tiler country she had loft and. that for wiltic.
she was bound. In tho case of any accident,
the advantage of this would be immense, for
a steamer could communicate its
its requirements, and its latitude and longi
tude, at the time of making such intimation,
so as to supply some idea of the quarter to
which aid should be despatched, if such aid
The saving of expense would he great, as,
instead of between three and four thousand
miles of telegraphic cable, not more than about
seventeen hundred miles in length would be
required—a little more, in fact, than tho dis
tance from land to land in a direct line.
Ono objection to this plan, ingenious as it
certainly is, arises oven while we thus endeavor
to make it as clear to our readers as it has been
made to our own mind by the two projectors.
The objection is simply this considering the
great stress to which the cable must occasion.
ally be liable, front the pressure of wind and
wave upon the buoys, (and on the wire through
the buoys,) the question arises, whore can
there be obtained a power sufficiently great to
bind the cable to the two termini, so as to 're
sist the tremendous pressure which thus may
be brought against it. The pressure, too, in
stead of being simultaneous and steady—as in
the case of a current running in one way—
would sometimes act by jerks. Tho motion
of the buoys, caused by wind and wave, would
not be simultaneous, as ono buoy would be on
the crest of a wave while another would bo in
the trough. Thus the action would vary, and
be worse for the cable, almost, than if the pres
sure were steady. What power can bind the
cable to the termini How can tho telegraphic
cable be made so strong that it will not snap
under the force to which it may be subjected?
Other objections will naturally be suggested
by other minds, and we shall be happy to re
ceive them—provided that those who make
them will study terseness, as the columns of
a newspaper are limited. We have thought
the suggestion hero explained, worthy of no
tice, and shall be glad to learn that it NA
awakened interest. The seed of something
truly great may lie undeveloped in this pro
PALMEItSTON vs. THE PEOPLE.
There is a silver lining to the darkest cloud:
At this moment Lord PALMERSTON must feel
one little consolation in the Indian mutiny—
like Aaron's serpent, it swallows up every
other public subject. It will afford a plausible
excuse for postponing, for another year, at
least, that Reform Bill which PALUERSTON
promised to introduce and carry through
Parliament in 1818. This promise, given
early.in 1857, was intended to prevent, and
actually did prevent, any other statesman from
introducing such a measure. Those who knew
Pwcasrox well, smiled at his Ingenuity, and
knew that ho would not keep his word.
By rank, station, and principle, Lord
PALNIERSTOR is essentially an aristocrat. But
lie attbcts to be the friend of Democracy. Re
has been over half a century in public life,
and for the first five-and-twenty years was a
rank Tory. Ile will concede nothing to the
People, it he can help it.
The Timer newspaper, which backs him at
present, has strongly declared—either as his
mouth-piece or his champion—that, while
India occupies the public mind, matters
more urgent and important than electoral re
form " are on the
Tho British people desire live things, all
which have long been in admirable practice
in this very Pennsylvania of ours. They are :
that the Legislature be chosen for a much
shorter term than seven years—that every
citizen shall have a vote--that the electoral
districts should be fairly marked out—that the
law be repealed which declares a man ineligi
ble to sit in Parliament, unless he have a large
property qualification—and that every legisla
tor be paid, as a public servant, while he per
forms his duties.
There is nothing very revolutionary in these
requirements, and yet the Royalty and the
Aristocracy ofi England will never grant them—
unless frightened into it, as was the case in
1832, when the People wore determined to
have the Reform Bill, no matter how earnest
ly the House of Lords rejected their Just
claims. VALUEIISTON may stave off his pro
mised Electoral Reform, on the ground as
sumed by his organ, but whether he live to
see it or not, tho Democracy of England will
have a full and fair legislative representation,
assimilated, as nearly as possible, in all essen
tial points, with that which we possess in this

[Reported for The Press.]
tg,_;;A LOFTY FIT OF INSPIEATION.--Tho prevailing
among critics is that the loftiest kind of
O Abel inspiration Is scarcely extant at this
nailed. However, the little State of Rhode Island
has sent as s queer specimen of elevated genius in
the person of Ilfr Hosea Baxter,who never attempts
to compose poetry without ascending a high door
• top, a pile of bricks, or some such platform raised
considerably above the level of the earth. Last
MOLE he perched himself on the edge of a scaffold
in front of anew building in Eighth street, where,
:at the height of ton feet above the pavement, he
began an invocation addressed to beings who were,
,of course, invisible to the corporeal eyes of a police
man standing in a shady recess en the opposite
side of the street. In a loud and thrilling tone,
the inspired Baxter, like a second Simeon Styltes,
from his lofty perch, commenced as follows—the
policeman standing " dumbfounded," either with
horror or admiration, as the discourse proceeded:
1 "Arise, ye spirits that flit around the honey
'odrnb of the imagination like bees around a tar
barrel, or buzzards around a dead dog—arise !

sickly, pallid, meal-faced moon, looking down from
her attic-window and turning up her cold nose at
this contemptible world; shining, too, like a half

rounded remind me of a

- "No, thoy ain't," cried a voice which knocked
all the starch out of the shirt collar of Hosea's
poetry. "No, they ain't; for one of them is just
e-going to tuck you up before ho tucks up him.
"Oh, ho ! I see you are awake, this time," said
glancing down rather uneasily at the
°Meer, "Well, take care what you do, old feller.
I'm. the head poet of Rhode Island, and the
governor of our State, will make you hoar small
thunder if I'm not treated genteelly."
"Oh, you shall he treated like an emperor of
Rusheye," said the officer; "only come down
from that scaffold."
"I reckon you'll have to help ma," said lima,
if you want me to descend to your own level. My
head always whirls around and buzzes like twenty
hornet's Hosts when I come out of a tit of inspira
With the after's assistance, from descended

of some doubt, this morning ho was liberated , with

TILE KANSAS 'CONSTITUTION
For The Prom]
The position you have taken upon tho ques
tions arising out of the unprincipled efforts to
force upon—Kansas a Constitution, without
regard to the wish of the people, must com
mend itself to the judgment of every candid
mind. There is a strong feeling of honesty,
and love of fair dealing, in the Americam
people, which will guide them to right con
clusions in the end, whatever efforts may be
made by special pleading to Mislead them.
The plain facts of the case are: let. Tho
members of the Constitutional Convention were
not fairly elected by a majority of the people.
2d. They not only do not represent the real
sentiments of the people, but are bitterly and
irreconcileably opposed to them. Bd. In order
to force upon the people a Constitution which
thoyknow to be odious to them, they have re
sorted to expedients bettor suited to a despotic
than a republican Government; and, with a
view to perpetuate its odious features, have
tried to render its alteration impossible until
the year 1864, and have placed obstacles almost
insuperable in the way of alteration, even after
The Injustice of this is evident, nor can it
be supposed that the American people will
sanction it. No matter what may bo the forms
of law by which it is attempted to cover over
the (laud and tyranny, the people will detect,
and in their honest indignation trample upon
them. And should, unfortunately, our Demo
cratic representatives in Congress lend them
selves to the attempt, they will meet, I doubt
not, the condenmation of an outraged consti
tuency for their disregard alike of the first
elements of a free Government, and the de
clared principles of the Democratic party.
In order to feel the outrage of this coup-de
e:at, we must bring the case home to our
selves. Suppose that one-fifth of tho citizens
of Pennsylvania, against the wishes and solemn
protest of four-fifths, should elect delegates to
frame a new Constitution, and actually meet
to carry out their purpose under the protec
tion of the bayonets of tho United States
troops, (without which they could not even
convene,) suppose you that a majority of our
citizens would be less indignant than the peo
ple of Kansas ?
It is no part of the Democratic creed to
countenance wrong. Neither is the Demo
cratic party under any obligation to be con
trolled in this matter by the wishes of extre
mists in the South. Our party has no sympathy,
and ought to have none, with ultra sectional
ists in either portion of the Union ; but, on
the contrary, it is based upon the idea of pro
moting justice and right, and the interest of
the country at large, without regard to any
During the late campaign we were assured
that Kansas should hare fair play. Upon that
assurance wo elected Mr. Buchanan; and if it
is made good by allowing the people of that
Territory a free andfull opportunity to approve
or disapprove of whatever Constitution may be
framed for them, no successful opposition can
be raised against our party. But, on the con
trary, should Mr: Buchanan, or any consider
able portion of our Democratic representatives
in Congress, loud their influence to this un
principled effort to forestall and prevent the
free expression of the people of Kansas, the
effect must be disastrous to the Democratic
A large portion of those, who have been
the truest and staunchest members of that
party, will consider themselves' disappointed
and deceived by their own leaders. Section
alism, with its exciting issues, will divide and
distract us. The opposition will occupy a
stronger position against us; and their num
bers, it is to be feared, be recruited by many,
who, disgusted with our forgetfulness of past
pledges, will abandon our ranks. Looking at
the matter, therefore, from the point merely
of party policy and party interest, as an old
Democrat, who has fought shoulder to shoul
der with Democrats for many a long year, and
in many a hard-fought battle, I trust that' our
representatives will remember the resolutions
of Cincinnati, and the pledges of Mr.
Buchanan's Inaugural, and promptly refer to
the people of Kansas the Constitution, for
their unqualified acceptance or rejection.
I cannot better conclude than by quoting
from the Washington Union of July 7th,1857,
in reference to the Kansas Constitution :
"When there is no serious dispute upon the
Constitution, either in the Convention or
among the people, the power of the delegates
alone may put it in operation. Hut such is not
the case in Kansas. The most violent strug.
glo this country ever saw, upon the most ha
portant issue which the Constitution is to de
termine, has been going on there for several
years between parties so evenly balanced that
both claim the majority, and so hostile to
ono another that numerous lives have been lost
in the contest. Under these circumstances
there can be no such thing as ascertaining
clearly, and without doubt, the will of the peo
ple, in any way except by their own direct ex
pression of it at the polls. A Constitution
not subjected to that test, no matter what it
contains, will never be acknowledged by its
opponents to bo anything but a fraud.
"A plausible color might bo gives to this as
sertion by the argument that the members of
the Convention could have no motive for re
fusing to submit their work to their Constitu
ents, except a consciousness that the majority
would condemn It. We confess that we should
find some dijiculty in answering this. What
other motive could they have 1 We do most
devoutly believe that, unless the Constitution
of Kansas bo submitted to a direct vote of the
people, the unhappy controversy which has
heretofore raged in that Territory will bo pro
longed for an indefinite:time to come."
If it is possible to repel or evade the force
of my argument, I trust the above will be taken
as good Democratic authority. H.

The Fort Wayne Sentinel states, that since

three millions of dollars due her, in solvent notes
and bills of exchange, she holds nearly eleven

Correepoudence of The Preys J
ECARRIsma, Nov. 80, /807
I see that you announce the Pennsylvania
Canal as being closed, at this point, by the
ice. This is hardly correct. It is true the
cold snap, of a few days since, did lay an em
bargo for a time ; but more genial skies have
removed that obstacle to trade, and there is
now a prospect that it will keep open until at
least the middle of next month. This is most
desirable, inasmuch as a large quantity of
produce, which cannot be carried so cheaply
on railroads, is ready to be forwarded Bast,
from nearly every town along the line.
Messrs. Hale, Bomberger, and Slifer, com
missioners appointed to investigate the con
dition of the Bank of Pennsylvania, havo sent
in their report to the Governor, and it is now
on file in the State Department. It may not
bo examined until Governor Pollock arrives,
(ho is expected to-morrow,) when I hope to
be able to procure a copy or an abstract ; how
ever, it is understood that the condition of
that institution is not so deplorable as was
feared, there being, rumor says, two millions
seven hundred thousand dollars of assets, to
two millions of liabilities. If the real, and
not thenominal value, of the assets is given,
it will be a delightful disappointment to certain
stockholders we wet of.
In consequence of the cotton mill and other
manufactories being stopped, much suffering
is already experienced by the unemployed; but
they have not yet in tide place gone so far as
to demand “Bread or blood A committee
of the benevolent have made collections, and
among other purchases have • procured three
hundred tons of coal and one hundred barrels
of flour for distribution. The coal was pur
chased from the Lykens Valley Company at
about $l.BO per ton, and brought hare free of
cost by the North Central Railroad; the flour
at Pittsburgh for $4.76 per barrel, and de
livered here free of charge by the Pennsyl
vania Central Company.
The course of Tns PRIM in supporting
Governor Walker, and repudiating the Cal
houn Minority Constitution, I assure you
meets with a unanimous echo here. There
is but ono opinion, which is that every people
ought to have a voice in framing their funda
mental laws. Great anxiety is felt to see the
President's Message on this subject and the
currency question. The confidence every
Pennsylvanian feels in the wisdom and in
tegrity of James Buchanan makes us all hope
and believe he will lend the influence of his
great name to the side of popular sovereignty,
as opposed to a body of unprincipled men
who have made an (it is to be hoped abortive)
effort to perpetrate a villainous fraud. I have
spoken to dozens of ardent Democrats, and I
have yet to find a single man who does not
condemn their villainy and sustain the view
taken by Governor Walker. Yours, &c.
(Correspondence of The Press I
lanntsnuno, Nov. 30th, /857.
I read Tut PRESS of to-day, and I rejoice
that you have taken a bold and fearless stand
against the usurpation of the rr Calhoun Con
stitutional Convention" in Kansas. I call it
usurpation, because it is an attempt on the part
of a Convention, with the assistance of Con
gress, to tie down, hand and foot, the people
of a Territory against their consent.
What have we to do with the rascality of
the Republicans in not appearing at the polls
and voting for delegates to the Constitutional
Convention? We know that they were ad
vised by the Now York Tribune, and others of
that school, to absent themselves from the
polls, and thus throw the responsibility of the
action of that Convention on the Democratic
party. Wo know full wall, too, that this was
done in the hope that the Convention would
put a clause in the constitution sanctioning
slavery, and thus our party be justly made ;sub
ject to the charge of desiring to extend sla
very into that territory. But what was our an
swer to this ? Did we not answer, that even
if this were true, no harm could arise, because
the people would in the end be called upon to
ratify or reject the constitution ? And now, in
the face of this, are we to cat our words, and
toll the people wo deceived them? The De
mocratic party has always been honest In her
course, and'she is now too old to lie.
The only question that arises in this whole
dispute, worth talking about, is this: Is the
submission to the people of their thridamtfiftat
law, for ratification or rejection, a natural con
sequence of the doctrine of popular sove
reignty If it is, then we are right; if not,
we aro wrong. But who will contend that it
is not? Who have a better right to decide
upon what shall bo the constitutional law
of a State than the people of that State
Will it bo said that when the people voted for,
and elected, delegates to the Convention, that
then their power ceased, and thereafter all
power was vested in the Convention? Not at
all. The people gave no such power to the
Convention. They reserved to themselves
tso authority to examine, endorse, or reject
the work of that Convention.
The question of slavery is not the only one
about which there is adiversity of opinion. The
election of judges, prothonotaries, justices
of the peace, with their term of office, and a
thousand other questions, arise in the forma
tion of a Constitution for a now State, and
these have just as much right to be submitted
to the people as the question of slavery. The
very submission of the slavery question con
cedes the right of the people to have submit
ted to them the whole instrument.
I therefore say to you, go on! The people
of this State are just and honest, and they will
sustain any man who is willing to deal justly
and honorably by others. I have a strong con
fidence in Mr. Buchanan; but if ho takes the
ultra Southern view of this question, he will
not be sustained at home.
Yours truly, J. Z.

of November. There was a design upon the mail

night last it was attempted again, and thelperpe,
tester was arrested and imprisoned at New Haven.

We have not the means of station the amount of
the leases caused by this robbery, but they must be
large. Four fall mails from Philadalgbia for Bos

and it appears that others on the same trains suf

a train which carried no through route agent.

relative to the free admission of United States
whalers and a portion of their goods, oil, do., into
Tumbes and other ports in Peru, it was deemed
best to more clearly define its meaning by a new
treaty. The 12th article provided that our whal

and merchandise, including oil, in the quantity of
$2OO ad raloreta for each vessel, without being
obliged to pay tonnage and port dues, or any other
charge or impost, for the articles changed or sold
in this manner. They were also permitted, with
the same exemption from tonnage and port dues,
to sell or barter their merchandise, provisions, and
