ceremony of breaking the groand for
the building of the new post office, New
York, weis performed on Monday morn
ing, 9th inst. The. first shovel fall of
earth waa tamed by Gol. Joseph Dodd,
the oldest attaohe of the post office, now
seventy-nine years of age, a native of
Bloomfield, New Jersey, whose con?
nection with the New York postal ser?
vice commenced in the year 1816, direct?
ly after the var with Great Britain, in
whioh the Ooloo el served as a captain in
the Jersey Fencibles. When he entered
the postal service, tho post office was
then on the corner of Garden street (now
Exchange place) and William, in a pri?
vate honse, the postmaster being Theo?
doras Bailey, who lived on the premises.
Gol. Dodd was the office messenger, and
part of his duty was to take the "Great
Son thorn Mail," as it is now termed,
across the North Bi ver to New Jersey,
whence it was transported by stage to
Philadelphia, via Trenton, and thence
southwardly. This mail generally con?
sisted of one leather bog, and contained
both letters and newspapers, mixed to?
gether promiscuously, whioh the Oolonel
would carry to the North Biver shore,
and thence he would row across in an
open boat from Paulus Hook (now Gort
landt street) to Jersey Gity, which was
then a mere hamlet, where the stage was
in waiting to take it South.
In the winter season this mode of
transit was very perilous, and the Colo?
nel says he has been sometimes from 8
o'clock in the morning till i o'clock in
the afternoon endeavoring to cross the
river with his mail-bag, the passage so
blocked by the ice that it seemed like an
impossibility for him ever to make the
opposite shore. The old veteran speaks
with pride of the fact, however, that he
never lost a mail, although, on a few oc?
casions, he came very near losing both
his life and his bont. If ho lind an extra
mail-bag at any time he thought the
amount of correspondence that people
indulged in was enormous.
At that era the full force of tho post
office was five persons, including a post
-xnoster and the Colonel, and this number
was found amply sufficient to transact
the whole postal business of the metro?
polis. There were no railroads spanning
the States in every direction, as now.
The "Great Southern Mail" was then
comfortably stowed away in the "boot"
of a stage-coach, and if it reached Phila?
delphia in two days after being de?
spatched from New York, it was con?
sidered as having made excellent time.
To reach Washington often occupied
more than a week, especially in the win?
FANATICAL, PILGRIMAGES.-About this
time of the year, tens of thousands of
pilgrims are making their way from all
parts of India to the shrine of that god
whioh has the power, as they believe, to
obliterate the transgressions of all who
make their offerings to him in person.
Juggernaut, the "Lord of the World,"
has been worshipped in the sacred town
of Pooree, in the Southern part of Gris
so, lying about 300 miles from Galoutta,
for 700 years past, and the pilgrims con
stantly increased in numbers until the
year of the fatal famine, when tho whole
country was strewn with the dead. Five
?ears or so ego, the attention of the
?nglish public was called to n celebra?
tion in honor of Juggernaut, within a
few miles of Calcutta, at which several
natives fell or threw themselves beneath
the car, and were crushed to death. Of
old the great festivals were never deemed
complete unless the triumphant path of
the god bad been stained with the blood
of his worshippers. But the priests dare
not encourage that custom now. If a
devotee flings himself down before the
idol, th? Brahmins cry ont it was an ac?
cident. The idolatry, however, still costs
hundreds of lives every year. The weak
and sickly perish by the way-side, and a
cholera epidemic usually breaks out at
Pooree when the city is most over-crowd?
ed with pilgrims. The poor creatures
are huddled together in u way which
seems almost incredible to tho European.
Tho temple of Jnggcrnnut stands in a
large enclosure in tho centro of Pooree.
T'-ere is ix Grecian column of blade ba?
salt in front of tho principal gate,
brought from Kunnrok. The god lives
in a large tower, and about GIO persons
arc employed to minister to his supposed
necessities. Thero is nu attendant who
puts tho idol to bed every night, another
who wakes bim, a third whose office is to
put water and a tooth-pick comfortably
within his rench, a f urth to paint his
eyes for him every morning, as if ho
were a faded New York beauty, several
others to cook and givo him his food,
120 dancing girls to amuse him in his
heavy moments, and ;i,000 priests to
worship him-and plunder tho pilgrims.
All thin goes on year af ter your-is going
on in tho midst of this hot weather,
while tho pilgrims throng every road
which leads to tho shrine.
OUR BONDS ABROAD.-Tho London
Pall Mall Gazette estimates tho amount
of United States bonds held abroad to bo
about $1,200,000,000, which, if tho esti?
mates bo correct, would cause a drain of
300,000,000 a year from this country to
pay tho interest on thom.

To the People of South Carolina :
The abovo Company waB organized in 18GG.
in consequence of tho wholesale forfeituro of |
Southern policies by Northern companies. Tho
unparalleled success of tho cntcrpriso has
forced soveral of these companies to restore
their Southern policies, from the fact that they
could not operate in our midst without tho ap?
pearance of honesty.
We keep all our money at homo to build np
? our impoverished country-every dollar of I
premium being safely invested in tho State
from which it is dorived. The institution ia
purely Southern, and hence should appeal
with groat force to tho patriotism ind sympa?
thy of every Southern heart.
'Tis not our purpoao to make war on other
companies, but to exhibit tho special advan?
tages offered by this purely Southern Compa?
ny-founded on patriotism and solid wealth.
Its ratio of assets to liabilities-the true test
of a company's strength, is second to none on
thia continent-being nearly 300 to ICO.
Whenever and whore ver wo have presented
the claims of thia Company, it has not only
enlisted the sympathies of our people, but baa
also secured their hearty co-operation. Wo
have secured 500 policios in Soxth Carolina
sinco tho 10th of February. Wo number
among our Directors Gen. Wado Hampton aud
Col. Wm. Johnston, gentlemen well known to
every citizen of South Carolina. Wo appeal
personally to tho people of South Carolina to
assist in pushing forward this deservedly
popular Southern institution.
