though w had - questioned that fact,
Tho Editor says that we " iutimated '

better than the Editor of tho Times, that
what we intimated was true. Whether
our article did or did not injure the Bank
was none of our neighbor's business, and

I Tho loss of tho Ship New Era, from

' grants on bcurd, bctwecu Deal and Long
Branch on the 'Jersey shore, has created
a profound sensation in this city. It is
melancholy to reEcct-ihat of the two
hundred and fifty-one persons lost, the
majority might have been saved, had
the wrecking station near the spot been
properly provided with apparatus or had
tho steam-tugs dispatched to the wreck
by; tho undcrwiters to save property
j-been furnished with life-boats. But the
mortar for throwing life-lines was ren
dered useless, aftcr.lllo ''fifth discharge,
for want of ball,' the crew of the 'ship
deserted, the Captain followed the crew
in the -only remaining boat of the ship,
the--aurf-boats from the shore could not
live in the storm, the steamers brought
no aid, and there, within 200 yards of
the dry beach, in sight of smoking
chimnies and inviting homes, 250 men,
Women and children perished. . The
ship-struck on Monday morning during
a fog, and it was not until Tuesday that
the gale moderated-sufficiently to permit
tho surf-boats to reach ' the wreck.
About 160 persons were -saved, (all Ger
mans) three or four of whom havo since
died of exhaustion. The New Era was
built at Bathe Maiue, and this was the
first-voyage. She was laden with hard-
rware, dry goods and chalk, consiguod to
Duncan & Co.- of this city, and was in

The correspondent of the Baltimore
Sun gives the following flattering ac
count of the affairs of two important
branches of Governmeut ..
" The General Land Office haa done a
big business during the past fiscal year.
About 9,500,000 acres- have been sur
veyed, and of these 7,000,000 have been
brought into market, which yielded a
revenue of nine millions, two hundred
and fifty thousand dollars, iu rtmnd
numbers. This shows to whivt extraor
dinary extent speculatiOnsln lands aud
real estate, gonerally, have been carried
on the past season, ana explains, m a
measure, the tightness of the money
market in the Western btates, now that
the dry-goods men iu the Eastern cit ies
bave nearly seen (no ootiom 01 ineir
' During the past nseal year soine4
three and a-half millions of acres were
entered with military land warrants,
eleven millions of acres were claimed as
swamp-lauds by the States, and one and
half millions (the residue ot tormer
appropriations) were selected ou dona
tions for roads by tne uencrai uovcrn
ment showing upward of twenty mil
lions of acres were, iu alh disposed of
during the last fiscal year.
" Tbo increased re.veuuei on casn
sales, amount alone to $6,000,000, which
is a million more than I stated in yes
terday's letter The error yesterday
arose from taking 7,000,000 acres Bold
for 7,000,000 dollars.
" I have already Stated that, in spite
of the increased expenses of the increased
nscfulness.of the PostOthce Department,
such is the rigid economo with which -it
is being inanagea, mat, wiin tne increas
ed revenue from postage, it is expected
that in about four years from now, pro
vided the same economical administra
tion of tjie department bo continued, the
revenuo will cover the expenditure.
Since the 4th of March, 1852, but ono
Bin glo defalcation has occurred,. (in the
case of the Postmaster at Troy,) but the
Sub-treasury act being promptly applied,
the whole amount recovered, and no loss,
therefore, was sustained by tho depart
ment. Considering that there are about
23,000 postoffiiccs in the UnitcdIStates,
the, fact is certainly highly . creditable,
both to the administration of tho Post
office department aud to the discrimina
tion used in the appointment of post
masters. ' ;''

from any of tho beautiful aud costly

"In announcing this agreeable intel

government to permit Mr. Soule to enter

aud a manifestation of unfriendly senti

result of erroneous impressions, and that,
when tho matter was fully examined,
