Messrs. Editors : The chance of a prospective
obango in the site of our Poatofllce gives much
concern. The present looation has suited all
classes of our citizens so admirably, and overy
arrangement conneoted with the establishment
has boen made to work so satisfactorily, that we
but express a very generally evidenced desire,
when we say that we trust our truly efficient
Postmaster will farther attest his ready disposi
tion to consult the convenience and wishes of our
people, by using his influence to retain the site in
the vicinity of its prosent looation. Haael-street
is the very centre of our city. It is the groat
thoroughfaro between King and Meeting Btreets,
ind adjacent to our chief hotels. All the business
3atabIishmonts of Hayne, King and Meeting
streets surround it. To those on East Bay it is
squally convenient, as in the transit from break
fast, and on their way to dinner, most of those
loing business in the lower part of the town pass
lirectly by it. Another great COE a id er at ion, of no
ittle force under our altered condition, our ladies
?an, without trenching into the rougher precincts
>f East Bay, deposit their letters as they weud
hoir way to King-street. This is a great matter.
The greatoat convenience of the greatest num
ber, indicates that tho Poatoffico should not bo ro
noved from the vicinity of its present site. We
ire sure that if our people can prevent it, they
ivill never acquiesce in the Post?nico being again
ilaced in one remote comer at the extremity of
he city. The largo population in our Upper
iVurds, whithor our growth is extending, should
lave 80mo consideration. We believe that our
.ateomed Postmaster will not be unheedful of the
general convenience in any permanent chango.
"Consistency Thou Art a Jewel."
Messrs. Editors : Your paper somo time sinoe
?ontained tho introductory address of Governor
3ULLOCH, of Massachusetts, upon the occasion of
jouerai HOWARD'S lecture before the people of
3o8ton on the condition of the freodmen.
This address is BO singularly in contrast with
;he opinions and recommendations of Governor
3ARDNEB, of tho same State, ia his inaugural
?peech to the Legislature in the year 1855, that I
ieg to reproduce them aa curiosities.
Governor Bui.i.ocii says : "The right of tho
'reedmen to occupation . and labor, to food and
slothing and education, and their status ia the
Courts of Law and Justice, are of primary neces
lity. Over those, I take it, it is General HOWARD'S
luty to watch aud guard and preside; but there
is something beyoud which is important, and
?vhich may aflect the future political destiny of
the Uuited States.
"I conscientiously and religiously beliove that
there should be equality of suffrage."
HAQPEB'S "Monthly Bocord of Current Events,"
for Fobruary, 1855, givea the following Byaopsis of
3overnor GABDNKB'S address: "It is mainly de
moted to a coneideratiou of tho dangers to be
apprehended from the foreign population ia our
midst, and tho duties of the Legislature ia re
gard to thom. He recommends that ovory foreign
tongue shall bo discarded ; that all documents be
printod iu tho English lauguage only ; that all
military companies fouuded on and devoloping
foreign sympathies be disbanded ; and tho control
of the couotry be retained ia the haods of the
native oitlzens." "Th'o people of Massachusetts,"
ho sayB, "boliovo that our rights, privileges and
liborttos, aro endangered by the influx of foroign
influences, which has incroasod BO rapidly within
a few yoars past. They distrust influences nurs
ed in customs and creeds, antagonistical to re
publicanism, and venal, ignorant, and vicious
voters, controlled by thoso who havo other objects
io view than the public good." He recommends
an "amendmont of the Constitution pinhibiting
the exerois? of the oleotive franchise to all of alien
birth, qualified by naturalization, until they have
resided within the Stato twenty-one yoars."
Another amendmont, "preventing all personB
from voting who cannot read the English lan
guage ;" and also recommends "tho passago of a
lair exompting all foreigners from militia duty,
and forbidding the State bounty to be paid to any
military company that has enrolled among its
members any person of foreign birth." Tho con
trast is oarious as well as complote, and the
poruaal may servo to amase and instruct your
reader?, foreign as well as native.
And METH-BELAH lived nine hundred and sixty
nine years, and ho diod. This is tho oxpressivo
record of Holy Writ. The oldest mau that ever
lived diod atlast. Tho distinguished name at tho
hoad of this article had long since passod into
history, and yet at the same time still lingered in
tho land of tho living, and wo naturally bogan to
think that the old General would always occupy
his placo in our midst. But he, too, is gone.
Eighty years of honor and distinction was no
safeguard against death.
Gen. WINI-.ELD SCOTT was born January l8, 178C,
in Petersburg, Va,, and rocoived his preparatory
education in Richmond High School and William
and Mary Collogo. Ho was admitted to tho bar
in Riohmond, and soon after visited Charleston,
8. C, with the intention of settling there, and
practicing his profession, which plan, however,
bo subsequently abandoned.
From his earliest boyhood ho showed a pr?di
lection for a military oareer, and fortuno soon in
terposed to assist him. The attack of tho British
frigate Leopard on tho United States frigate
Chesapeake aroused tho indignation of the whole
country, and a large force of voluntoers was call
od oat. SCOTT hastened to enroll himself in the
Petersburg Troop of Horse as a private. His
soldierly person and evident taste for arms at
tracted tho attention of Influential friends, and he
waa commiasionod captain of light artillery May
He was made Lieutenant-Colonel in the war of
1812, and orderod to the Niagara frontior. Before
the end of the year ho was elevated to the com
mand of a double regiment, and in March, 1814,
he waa promoted to the rank of Brigadier-Gen
oral. The battlo of Ohippowa was the first of a
long series of victories associated with his name.
After the declaration of poace, General SCOTT
was offered the post of Secretary of War, by Mr.
MADISON, which, however, he declined, and pro
ceeded to Europe, in 1815, on a secret mission of
the Government. On his return to tho United
States he was assigned in command of the sea
board, and fixed his headquarters in New York
city. Here he remained till the breaking out of
the Blaok Hawk war iu 1832. At the close of a
brief campaign of a few months, he returned to
New York, and in October visited Charleston on a
highly important and dolicate mission.
In 1835 his headquarters wero transferred to
Florida. In 1837 he was sent to tho Northern
frontier, on the occasion of the insurrection in
Canada. In 1841 he was made a full Major-Gono
ral, and appointed Commander-in-Ohief of the
whole United States army; and on the 30th of No
vember, 1646, sailed from Now York for the Rio
Grande, to direct the approaching campaign in
His brilliant viotorios during the two years of
the Mexican war aro too familiar to all our read
ora to warrant any further allusion to them in a
brief biographical sketch.
Ho was nominated for the Presidency at the
Baltimoro Whig Convention in 1852. He was
honored by Congress with the rank of Lieutenant
General, which grade was revived in his person
an a compliment to his distinguished services to
the nation. He was retired from the immediate
command of the army, at his own request, No
vomber 1, 1861. Since then he has beon living in
dignified retirement at West Point, where he died
on the morning of tho 29th.
The attontion of the business public is called to
the following extract of a letter received this day,
informing us that cotton and goods can bo ship

lotto and Norfolk, cheaper than through Charles
"We have advised our house at Columbia, S. C,
to ship cotton via Charlotte and Norfolk, to New

Will the President of tho South Carolina Rail
road give the public the reasons why such pro

Tile Trial of Jr.fr. Davla to be Postponed
T/ntll November-lames F. Brady one of
hla Counsel, etc.
[Telegraph to the New York Herald.]
WASHINGTON, May 27.-It is now considered cer
tain that the trial of JEFF. DAVIS will be postpon
ed from June to the November term of court.
The hot woathor, and tho possibility of opldenflbs
aro Gufticiont to warrant the dolay until later in
the season. Neithor is it expected that he will be
brought to trial under the Norfolk indictment.
The Grand Jury eimply adjourned, and is there
fore competent to withdraw this and substituto
any other. The Norfolk indictment is good in the
absence of any other, and was drawn in almost
exact conformity with tho celebrated Burr indict
ment; bnt the assistant counsel for the prosecu
tion will probably ask for its amendment by ad
ding several additional pointe. The 15th of June,
1864, was fixed for two reasons: first, the indict
ment must by law be found within throe years of
the alleged crimo: and secondly, tho evidence that
was brought before the Grand Jury fixed that
It is'co longer a secrot that James T. Brady, of
Now York, is engaged as counsol for Jefferson
Davis. He arrived in the city yesterday in the
interest of his client, and to-day had an interview
with Mrs. Davis at the residence of Dr. Miller,
where she is now stopping. Mr. Davis will bo
prepared at the June term of court, to be hold in
Richmond, and will insist upon an immediato
trial, or being released upon his own recognisance,
or upon bail. Ho will alec bo prepared to givo
bail in any amount demanded by the Govern
ment to tho extent of five or ten millions of
dollars. His counsel will insist that there
is neithor law, nor justico, nor precedent for
longer delay by tho Govornmont, nor for
a refusal to accept bail, should tho prosecutors
for any reason ask for a postponement of
tho caso. The opinion is widespread that tho
Government will ask a continuance of the case on
the ground of not being propared for trial; but it
ia believed that when all the consequences of de
lay aro considered, and tho faot once known that
ten ruilllons of dollars ball can be procured in tho
North alone, that the authorities will either pro
ceed at onoe in tho caso or rolease him upon his
own rooognizanoo or upon parole, rather than ad
vertise to the world such a state of publio feeling
at tho North, and admit such vacillation and im
becility in preparing for this important case. It
is not unlikely that Mr. Brady while here will oon
fer with the President, tho Secretary of War, and
the Attorney-General upon the line of procedure
to be adopted In tho ORSO. He Is oxpooting to re
turn to Now York to-morrow night.

Thero was little change in tho aspoct of the
German question. Austria pushed on her arma
ments, and it was thought sbo would have nino
hundred thousand mou in tho field within two
weeke, should the existing status be prosorvdtt so
long. Italy Boomed roaav, and tho equipment of
Prussia wo8 almost completed. Our telegraphic
report of tho 17th of May-tho very latest-states,
in tho face of those faots, that the prospect of a
poaco Congress was "improving." Indeed, it ia
?aid that Italy and Prussia had accepted this plan
of sottloment, but that tho repiy of Austria had
not beon received. Count Bismark, it ia alleged,
had lotters daily advising him that his assassina
tion was imminent. The electoral agitation io
favor of poaco wau extending in Prussia.
The money panic excitemont continued in pro

The panto continues to abate, and the indica
tions increase that, although many difficulties
must yet be looked for. the effeota of tho shock
will bo less general ana disastrous than on former
occasions. Many even of the embarrassments
that may yet have to be chronicled could, it is
boliovcd, with moderate assistance, bo entirely
averted. One reason for this comparatively satis
factory condition oonaists in the fact that the

herontly more wealthy than at any previous dat?,
while another favorable circumstance has beon
that the threatenings of a Continental war, on
tho one hand, and the Balutary operation of our
ourrenoy system on the other, have for months
fiaat tonded to arrest the mad career >t the epecu
ative public, and to causo many of the addi
tional aohomea to which they would otherwise
have boen committed to provo abortive.
After the panic of 1847, a long period was expe
rienced during which half-finished railways and
other publio works had to bo abandoned, and per
sons were hopelessly ruined who might otherwise
have partly retrieved their position. On the pres
ent occasion there is no reason to apprehend that
any thing of this sort to a serious extent will be
witnes?od. Again, in the succeeding panic-that
of 1857-it was found that for a year or two a
large number of the most active firms in Glasgow,
Liverpool, London and elsowhere bad absolutely,
for a long period, been shipping goods at a reck
less sacrifice, for tho solo purpose of having the
protest of an oxtonsive business to enable them
to draw accommodation bills. In that way an
actual commercial loss of tens of millions was in
curred. On the present occasion there has been
no very serious squandering of national wealth,
and tho ruin encountered has been mainly from
a fall in the prices of seourieties, which were
previously calculated to be symbols of wealth
they did not actually represent. In this way it has
been estimated at least one hundred ana thirty
millions sterling have disappeared even since the
commencement of the present year, bat it is
simply from the dissipation of preposterous
valuation?, and not from tho destruction or loss
of anything positive. Even of this at loaot half, or
porh?pB two-thirds, will be recovered with the re
tura of confidence, einoe its enormous amount ia
chiefly due to the fact that every enterprise and
every security io the kingdom, including the Eng
lish funds and all the best foreign stocks have
been beaten down by the disappearance of the
fictitious premiums of a number of inferior oon
corns. The prospect, therefore, is much less dis
couraging than it might be supposed, and it may
be hoped that, although the age is probably far
distant when morality and intelligence will be
sufficiently diffused to prevent altogether tho
repetition of such criais, each succeeding case of
i he kind will show some advancement ia the pow
er of self-ooatrol. The general consequences of
the pinio of 1857 were far less disastrous than
those of 1847, and there is good ground to trust
that on the present occasion we nhall show a fur
ther stride in our ability to bring these periods of
monia within the iuflaeuce of correotivo procesaos.
Speech of the King of Prussia.
The King of Prussia recently gave audionoe to
the General Superintendent and President of the
Protestant Consistory, and roplicd to that digni
tary in the following terms :
I am especially glad of the opportunity of re
ceiving, ander prosont circumstances, tho repre
sentative of the National Church. The period we
are now passing through is sortous and decisivo
for the future of the country. I have only deter
mined with an anxious heart, and aftor long and
mature reflection, upon ordering military prepara
tions. My Government and I do not desiro war,
and it ia not our fault that the ally whicli
mado a campaign in common with Prussia two
years ago now assumes a hostile attitude. The
mission of the groat Gorman Powers is to act '
in concert for tbo welfaro of Germany. I havo E
not provoked tho existing complication, but thero
are circumstances in which poaco cannot possibly
bo maintained. Neither I nor any ono can desiro
poaco at any price. I havo the full consciousness
of my gravo responsibility before God and the
country, bnt I shall pursue with perfoot confidence
tho way by whioh God is pleased to conduct mo.
The olergy should spread among tho people a cor
rcot acquaintance with tho situation, and pray for i
the King and the country. It is still possible that .,
fioaco may bo maintained, but it is necessary to
ook the future courageously io the face.
Ia dismissing the Goneral Superintendent, His
Majesty added, "I trust that we may meet again
ia timo of poaco."
