From this table - it appears that i_the
amount of postage: for letters and news.
papers - carried by mail, between October
1, and December 31, 1854, was 8..1,5t;i1, ,
205 88 , thilf during the same time was
paid to postmasters and their, clerks
*1,031,228 09; for mail transportation
$1,934,715 09, and the net profits of the
Post Office Department for that quarter
amounted to the gratifying sum of $29(.1,-
001 .87. The net proths - of the previous
quarter amounted to $136,229 80. The,
profits of the first six months of the pros.'
.ent,fiscal year arc therefore 8732,2 a 66,
oral the rate qf over a million, and a 1
half of dollors,a
To understand the full significance of
this fact, let us compare it With the re.
ceipts cod expeiiditures of the correspond
ing six months of M. Buehanan'S ad
ministration. The books of the Depart

showing a loss fur mail service in the last
six months of .Mr..B . uchanan's 'adminis
tration of $3,140.205 16. If to this loss
be added the profit in the last six.montlis
of Mr. Lincoln's term, we find the differ
ence in six months' time for the two ad
xninistrations to be Aar 2nillions, one
hundred and seventy-two thousaird, four
hurzdred Land tivir!opfivc dollars, and
eightj, five cents. The annual s w ing in of
course, will be eight three IfUn
dred thousand dollars.
By a standing
act of Congress,s.7oo,ooo
is appropriated to the Post Office De
partment for carrying the free mail plat
ter of all the other departments, and 1)y
the .appropriation bill for 18(11—'65, a
million and a half of dollars is app:ropri-•
ated for deficiencies. Not only will this
two and a quarter million of dollars bu
uncalled for, but the Yost Office Depart
ment will have a million land, a half to
deposit it the Treasury of the United
States • or to sink, in earrylv the mails
from the Southern States, For, be it
remembered, that the receipts of the two
last quarters of 1860 included some eight
more States than the receipts of 186.1
The enlargement of territory should have
produced an enlargement of profits; in•
htead.of this, it sank over four millions
of dollars. .
The figures develop another fact well
worthy of public attention. The expen
ditures of the Department for the six
months of 1860 were $7,751,159 77 ;
those for the corresponding six months
of 1364 were $6,5-10,823 63, a saving for
the six months of one million two hun
diel thoosM3d dollars. The receipts for
the six months of Is6o were 84,300,95-1-
61;. the receipts for the stone period in
782-1,-when eight States made no return
whatever, were $7,273,056 32 ; showing
that the postal receipts of the free States
in 1861 had nearly .doubled the' postal
receipts of free and slave States in 1860.

OF ins Loss.--Wen the tire broke out
in Barnutn's Museum, a 4elegram was
immediately sent tO him at- Hartford,
Conn., he being a Representative of a
district in the State Legislature, and was
attending to official busines at the time.
He was speaking when the unwelcome
telegritin was handed-to him, and, opening
-it, he read the contents, but proceeded
with his. business in the cbolest manner
possible. tfe did not think it necessary
to hurry on to New York, but determined
to wait until next morning.'' Going home
to Bridgeport, he spent that night in the
midst of his family, and only arrived 111
New York on Friday, morning. Like a
philosopher, Mr. Barnum views the ca
lamity in a calm light. He rejoicee that
the 'tire took place at a time when, but
few persons were in the establishment.
He was waited on, while at the Astor
louse viewing tho' ruins, by a number
of friends, who generously proffered their
services, should they beirequired. Mr.
Barnum was the most buoyant of all.
Instead of alluding to or
. mourning over
his loss, he spoke, of nothing but the
prospectus for his new museum. This,
he asserts; will surpass: anything of the
sort ever attempted. "I will new turn
to building," said Barnum, "and such a
building as will astonish the world. On
the roof' . will have my menagerie of Wild
beasts from all parts of the world. Its
extent will be three times the.size of My
late establishment, aricl,as for curiosities,
there will be no such collecticn on this
continent or on any other." The New
York papersof Saturday contain a Card
of thanks • from Mi. Barnum, .in which
he says that an experience of twen
iy•five years( will , enable him in, six
months to duplicate, in Europo'and Amer
ica, every specimen of- natural hhitory
which adorned his late museum, and,
from historical societies and other sources
within his knowledge, he can nearly sup
ply the place's of the Revolution and
other relies which have been destroyed.
A DEAR. WnisTr.E. 7 —The Canadians,
who received the Southern traitors and
Northern renegades Pith such alacrity,
are now reaping a hatst from the seed.
An American officer writes to the Toron
to . Globe the fallowing, among other
things :
"It is well
.known That in all parts i lof
Canada the staid and industrious Me
chanics and laborers lave been dischargo
from the, farms cmi workshops to give
place to; those thieving faxeigners .who
labor for much 'less Compensation. Title
result is, that 'deserters from the arm es
on the other sida arciworming tbernsel es
into positions that ,should be filled by
your own native citizens, who perfo ce
are compelled to emigrate to the lint ed
States to support themselves and t eir
The conseqdence is, that C, a
ada gets the worst of the exchange,—the
dissipated and unprincipled bounty•jutimp.,
er,—while the United ‘States reccores s l
your best class of laborers and mechan4s."
The letter .was called out by au article
in the Globe, on the extraordinary ntana-
her .of fires, robberies and disturbances
which had happened in Toronto and other
cities since the peace. I\ - c can only hope
that the select circle of gentlemen at
leisure will 'be greatly reformed before
they return to tit country which they
have left for its good.

The close of the war in America has

is coming, for the failure of half the com
mercial 'halms in Bombay cannot but
affect their English correspondents. The
rise in cotton, and the inavaenseinflux. of
money to pay for it,. had caused such a
fever of speculation as the English - had
never known. -All kinds of jeint stock
companies were formed, and shares which
cost; x'soo, went up £15,000, The news
of General Lee's surrender sentl down the
