To persons mailing Letters J or California and the T r i
tones of Washington and Oregon .Thousands of letters sent
to the Pacihc coast become dead letters. To remedy this evil
the 1 ost Othcc Dciirtment, under the authority of Comrress, lias
adopted as an auxiliary to its operations the following plan for
simultaneously pul dishing at each and every ist office in the
laciac re-ion, in a list called " Pacific Mail List," the names of
. Jus .t3 whom letters live been sent by mail to post offices in
California and the Territories of .Washington and Oregon. By
this system, a letter may be sent to any post oflico in the Pacific
region .for a person whose location is unknown, save the mere
(Won t iv -Wcere in --afoniia or the Territories of
itffirVJ ,h.ulton 5 lf tIie ktter be published in the Pacfic
fl , t3 ultimate reception by the person for whom it is
intended will be rendered highly probable. To enable those who
7ZltZ A r 5 X w,1 t0r niei.r 1:u:ific correspondents the advan
tages thus offered, the following illustration is riven
-ri eenu to the Sacramento post office a
letter lor Oeorge ilson, who enngrated to California from Pike
county, Missouri, but it is feared that he may have changed his
1-wation and hence may not receive the letter. In this case,
direct the letter to George Wilson, (late of Pike county, Missouri)
Sacramento, California.. Then, in order to publish the letter in
the Pacific Mail List, copy the address of the letter upon a
piece of paper or card, and enclose the card, together with a
three-cent postage stamp, in an envelope to the Pacific Mail
List, N. l. Deposit: the letter, as usual, in the mail for Cali
fornia, and at the same time drop the envelope, containing the
card to publish the letter, in the mail for New York. From
the address on the card thus received at the New York post office,
the name, George Wilson, will be entered in its appropriate place
in the Pacifie Mail List, which is printed and sent by mail to
each and every iostmaster in California and the Territories of
Oregon and Washington, and by them posted in a conspicuous
place m their respective offices. The list thus being distributed
over the entire Pacific region, George Wilson may at once learn
from it that a letter for him has been sent to the Sacramento
Ist office. No person of a similar name will receive the letter,
for the address on it points out that it is intended for George
Wilson, late of Pike county, Missouri. Thus maxy letters will
le received that would otherwise be transmitted to the dead
The envelopes containing the advertising cards sent to the
Pacific Mail List, New York, pay postage like ordinary mail
matter, and must be pre-paid. The addresses of letters copied
on the pieces of paper or cards should be written in a plain and
distinct manner. The three-cent postage stamp enclosed in the
envelopes defray the expenses of publication, and must not be
pasted to the cards, but simply enclosed with them. In the ab
sence of postage stamps, three-cent coins maj-be substituted.
It is believed that this circular has been drawn up so explicitly
as to require no explanations ; but should this prove not to be
the case, postmasters will take notice that nil interrogatories
must be addressed to the Pacific Mail List, New York, and not
to the department.
The first of this series of lists will accompany the mail of May
5th, and will be forwarded by each succeeding 'mail.

The Sea Sebfent op toe Norweoiax Seas. Tho
existence of an iinmense marine animal, with the form
anl motions of a serpent, has long been believel in
in Norway. Many traditions, as well a recorded attes
tations of a sea serpent, on the Norwegian coast,
have been preserved for. many years. Among other
accounts, the missionary Hans Egede, declares that
he "witnessed a dreadful sea monster, resembling ft
huge serpent, in 17G4, in 04 degrees cf latitudes. Its
body was as bulky as a ship, and three cr foiir times
as long. In Pontoppidon's Natural History of Nor- ;
way, the existence of this animal is recognised. Tho
learned bishop says, I have questioned its existence
ni3self, till; that suspicion was removed by full and
sufficient evidence from credible and experiencecP
fishermen and sailors, & which there arc hundreds
who can testify that they have annually seen him.'
He also publishes a number of documents from per
sons of great respectability, all going to show that an
enormous monster exists on that coast, which appears
to be about six hundred feet long, that it lies in tho
water in many folds, and these appear like so many
hogsheads floating in a line at a considerable distanca
from each other.
An animal resembling the description given of tho
sea serpent, was stranded on the island of Stronsa,
one of the Orkneys, in. the year 1S08. It was exam
ined by many individuals, and was afterwards bro
ken up, and tho skull, the upper bones of the swim
ming paws, portions- of tho vcrtebrre, &c, wcio
preserved and deposited in the Royal College of Sur
geons. An able paper relating to this animal was
prepared by Dr. Barclay, and read before tho Wer
nerian Society, and may be found among its transac
tions. This animal measured fifty-six feet in length
and twelve in circumference. The head was small
and the neck slender, extending to the length of fif
teen feet. It had blow-holes, and something like a
bristling inane; also tlaee pair of fius or paws, con
nected with tho body the anterior ones measured
four feet in length,' and their extremities were some
what like toes, being partially webbed. The skin was
smooth, without scales, and of a greyish color, and .
the flesh was like coarse, ill-flavored beef. Many .
affidavits of respectable individuals, as well as other
circumstances, go far to show tho existence of such
an animal as is above described.
In "the same year, 1808, an animal of a similar
kind was seen by Mr. McLean, the parish clergyman
of Eigg, on the coast of Coll, near the Isle of Canna,
one of the western isles of Scotland. He followed tho
boat into the mouth of a creek, and appears to have
frightened the worthy clergyman very much. lie
was also seen by the crews of thirteen fishing boats,
who were much terrified, and hastened to the shore
as fast as possible.
It is stated by Dr. Hibbert that the great sea ser-
pent has been recognized occasionally in the Shetland
seas, and he specifics one which was seen off the Islo
of Stonness, Vaeley Island and Dunvossness.
Sir Arthur de Capel Brooke, in his . Travels in
Norway" makes allusion to this animal which ac
cording to the statement of many fishermen and
others, was seen in the i olden Fiord in 1817. It
also made its appearance in 1819 olF Otersun in Nor
way, and according to Captain Schildcrup was seen
daily during the whole month of July when tho
weather was very warm, it appeared to be dozing in
the sunbeams. Captain Schilderup estimated its
length at COO feet. The Bishop of Xordland testifies
that he saw two sea-serpents about eight miles from
Drontheim the largest of which appeared to bo about
100 feet long. Again it is stated that in 1822, one of
these monsters, with a body as large as an osy'frtid a
fourth of a mile long, appeared otf tho island Loroe,
near Tinmask.and was seen by many of the islanders.
The most recent account of this monster in' that
quarter, is believed to be contained in the newspapers
of Drontheim in 1837. The account says that since
the beginning of dog days the serpent has been seen
at various parts of the coast. One of them seems to
have remained constantly during the summer near
Storfoscn, at tho Kcrgvang islands. Several fisher
men have been so dreadfully frightened at the sudden
appearance of the serpent so near their boats that
they did not know in what direction to escape. Tho
serpent did not attack, but followed the boat for some
distance, and the men in their haste so over-exerted
themselves, that two persons were' confined to their
beds. Very credible persons affirm that the length of
the sea" serpent-may be taken at COO or 800 ells, or
more as when those people were near its head they
could not discover its tail. Its greatest thickness is
near the head. These observations were made within
a few days, and among others, byacrpdible, sensible
man, who with his two sons was on an island where
they landed, and where tho serpent after following
their boat, swam slowly by."
So much for the sea serpent on the coast of Xorway.
"What has become of the sea serpent which was wont
to honor the North American coast with a visit? Ho
has not been seen for years. Has some stalwart fish
erman or "old salt" been shaking a harpoon at him ?

Mercantile Hoxor. It might tempt one to bo
proud of his species when he looks upon the faith that
is put in him by a distant correspondent, who, with
out one hold upon, him other than his honor, consigns
to him the wealth of a whole flotilla, and sleeps in the
confidence that it is safe. It is, indeed, an animating
thought, amid the gloom of this world's depravity,
when we behold the credit which one man puts in
another, though separated by oceans and continents;
when he fixes the anchor of a sure and steady depend
ence on the reported honesty of one whom he' never
saw; when with all.his fears for the treachery of the
varied elements through which his prosperity has to
pass, he knows that, should it only arrive at the door
of its destined agent, all his fears and all his suspi-"
cions may be at an end. We know nothing finer than
such an act of homage from one human being to
another, when, perhaps, the diameter of the globe is
between them; nor do wo think that either the renown -of
her victories, or the wisdom of her counsels, so
signalize the country in which we live, as does the
honorable dealing of her merchants; all the glories
of British policy and British valor, are far eclipsed
bythe moral splendor which British faith has run
over the name and the chamfW nf wir rittnn.
has she gathered so proud a distinction from all the
tributaries of her power, as she has done from tho
awarded confidence of thoc men of all tribes, and '
colors, and languages, who look to our agency for the
most faithful of all management, and to our keeping
for the most inviolable of all custody. Chalmers.
BoiatowixG Newspapers. Yc wonder what kind
of a conscience the daily borrower of a newspaper has ?
For a trifle he can have the newspaper served daily
at his own door, yet he prefers to be indebted to tho ,
charity of his neighbor, for his daily information, and .
by borrowing will meanly deprive that neighbor-of
the enjoyment of that which hohas honestly paid for. ;
Now. there is not much difference between begging
alms and begging daily information. Either 13 an
imposition upon others.. The first may have the plea
for necessity for its excuse, but the latter can only
have the plea of interest, and meanness. . The person
who ha3 interest enough in public concerns to wish to
know what a newspaper contains, ought to have
industry enough to earn the price of one for himself,
and not subject his neighbor to the annoyance of
parting with his just at the period of time when he
has most leisure to read it, or.compellLng him to avoid
the daily annoyance by stopping his paper altogether.
