PASSAGE OF THE POSTAGE RE
FOt M BILL,
Tito Senate, on Saturday, passed the
bill reducing the rates of postage, and mod
ifying the franking privilege. The bill
niakes importaur changes in the present
post office system, and was passed by a
vote of 38 to 12. The main feature of the
bill is the establishment of a uniform rate
of postage on single letters of five cents to
any part of the United States. Should
the low rate of postage-that is a uniform
charge of live cents for.a letters of half an
ounce, and ten cents for an ounce weight,
and so on in hsame ratio, to any part of
the United States materially reduce the
revenues of that department, and throw it
upon the comtnon treasury, there could he

Drop letters, according to the bill. that is
letters for delivery in the city where the,
are deposited in the post office, are to 1)w
charged two cents.. If letters are adver
tised they are to be charged with the costs
of advertising (two cents) in addition to
the postage when delivered.
Newspapers, of no greater size than
nineteen hundred -quare inches, (whirl
will cover all the Baltimore city papers)

assisstant postmasters general are allowed
to frank, but must-endorse their letters or
packages --official business," and if they
should n~t be on official business they are
liable to a penalty of three hundred dol
lars for each offence. Deputy postmas.
ters are to have alt the postage they pay
rm business letters refunded, and if their
commissions do not amount to twenty -five
cllars per annum, then thet Postmaster
General is allowedfto increase them.
Governors of St ates are allowed to trans

ooks and documents; and mnembners of

Efeicts.of Abolition.-A bill nf some im
portance, says the Annapolis Hleraltd, re
laing to the free blacks and mulatmoes of
Maryland, has .ecome the law of the land.
By an act of 1831. they wvere allowed to
leave the State for an unlimited period and
return again, upon fitittg with the clerk of
the coutnty of 1.errsdnce a certificate
stating the reasons of their departure, and
their intention to return. The clause of the
bill, making this provisio~n. was stricken
out, whereby, underno circumstances, will
they be allowed to return to the State, after
having absented themselves for 30 days.
What is true of M~aryland in this regard,
may' be said of almost all the Souithern
Slaveholding States, and the Ablitionists
may felicitate themselves, in having ac
complished thus much, in. their fanadcal
zeal for the "amelioration of the Slaves."
Nowhere at the South was such a law in
existance until the agitation- of abolition,
and most of tlie States, at first, reluctantly
yielded to its passage, but were eventually
forced. in self preservation, to adopt simi
lar laws. Maryland has been among the
last to give in.her adhesion, and she has
been forced into it by a fanaticism as reck
less and desperate as it was disorganizing
and dishonest.-Augusta Chronicle.
THE TWO COMETS.
iIGH SHOAL OBSERVATORY,
Philada., lan. 26, 1845.
To Joseph- R. Chandler, Esq.-Dear
Sir.-This being. the first clear evening
since the announcement of the new comet,
seen in the -Gulf of Mexico, Professor
Kendall atd his assi.tatits succeeded in
observing it, together with the second Mlau.
vais-comet, the latter f which was found
in the place given in Prof. Perry's Ephe
The new comet reported by several anns
iers of vessels recently arrived from the
Guif o Alexico, and by Mr. W. 1:. Clark,
an intelligent gentlennt of St. Mary's
Georgia, was readily seen in a position a
few degrees south of the constellation of
the Whale. It is visible to the naked eye
as a dim white cloud, with a faint tail ex.
tending in a~ direction from the comet op
posite that of the sun. Its brightness is
about that of a star of the fifth tngnitude.
InI the equatorial, no trace of a nucleous is
to be found; but the head appears as a ne
bulosity condensed in the rentre.
This singtilr comet affordsanother ex
ample of the peculiarity noticed by Olhers
in January. 1824. respecting the comet of
December, 1823. It has two tails, visible
in the comet searcher, the ordinary tail
extends about five degrees in the direction
frorm the comet opposito that of- the sun.
The extraordinar3, tnil is iticlited about
twentty degree0 to the south of the line
from the comet towards the son, and ex
trends about .me degree, beiing narrower
and eller defined; resembling rays stream
ing outwards towards the sun. The new
chiet's places on the II th and 26th of the
imtottth, at 20 minutes past 7, P. Al., are
r follows :

This will be the position of the Matvais'

should the present direction and rate of'

ennch satisf'nction. "With resnec, to its
appllcation to marine. purposes," says the
Railway Gazette, "a life boat is now be

(thirty-four feet length of keel and twelve
breadth of beam) which, with the excep
tioi of the keel and some iron braces, will
bdetirely formed of India Rubber-and
cork planking. She will weigh but one
ton and a half, an ordinary life boat weigh
ing three tons; and it is the opiniirl of all
naval engineers who have seen her, that
it will be almost impo-sible to sink her,
under ordinary circumstances, and that
when driven on a rock by tlie action of the
waves, she will rebound like a ball, with
out fracture. It is also proposed to use
the caoutchouc preparation for an inner
lining between the guns in war vessels, to
prevent the effect of splinters-for ham
mock knetting and bulwarks to save Ilie
crew from canister, grape, &c., and for
other useful though less obvious puryoses."
