Thi Niw Postoffics. We think we ere
safe in saying that Columbus can boast of one
of the beet poatoffices in the eountry . It Is now
about completed. Postmaster Graham will re
move the office on Saturday, the 23th instant.
This will render it Impossible to open the office
for delivery on the Sunday evening following.
The looatioo of a postofHce in a oity is Always
a difficult and embarrassing matter. Every
body cannot be suited, especially those whose
business Is more or less afieoted by .the location.
Those who lose the benefits ere dissatisfied,
and those who receive them of course ars
pleased. For Ourselves, we think this should
not be the contiollng element in removing or
locating a postoffice, or any other publlo build
ing or office. The convenience of the greatest
number of citizens and Indeed all, as near as
may be of the officers performing the duties of
the office, and Its .security, should determine
the Better. - , :;;.. C'-t H" JAiiM

[Tribune's Correspondence.]
Deo. 19. At ona o'clock Lord
Lyons called on the Secretary of State, who
was at the Capitol. Ha called again at three
o'clock. The communication which be made
Is as yet a secret. ' No Cabinet meeting baa
seen neia on ine euojeoi.
The general feeling of the city is less war
like than at first and the people talk coolly of
surrendering the emmissarlea, If it can be done
without a BicriUce of nonor, father than engage
At this time in a foreign war. Tbe report that
members of tbe Cabinet take a similar view of
tbe qneeuon gains currency and finds belief;
but while it i not true that aucb a conclusion
has been arrived At in Cabinet meetiner ou the
one band, it Is truo on the other hand that the
determination not to surrender nnder any oir
eumstancts or for any considerations, is h
sointe. sat wnue me uorerument will do
nothing to provoke hostilities, it will guard
well tbe national honor. Should arbitration
be proposed it mar be accepted. Should a
sufficient consideration for the surrender of
Mason end olldell be offered It mav be made
A prominent member of the Government
stated in conversation this evening that Lord
Lyons would not demand his passports; that
mason ana suaeii wouia not oe given op, and
that there was no probability ot a war with
England.
.bnslisnmen- here are oonfldent of a war be
tween tbe two countries. This opinion, how
ever, is based npon no offluial communication,
and while It excites some' unpleasant feeling,
oarrie no weight. Several Eogliebmeu now
serving in our army, among them Col. Haveloak
and Capt. Stewart, have, it is Is declared, sig
nified their intention to resign, should further
compllcatioLS ensue. In other oases extraordi
nary and painful evidences of sudden hostility
to onr cause have been shown. The general
feeling, however, appears to bo a sincero re
gret at what they regard as tbe Inevitable
boo. -
Mr. Adams's disp&tcbes bare little to say
touching the Trent, having reoeived no com
munication on tbe sunject trom tbe tfmisn gov
ernment. In the oase of tbe Nashville, he had
made representations, but had received . no
reply. ,
A letter dated London, Dec. 4th, received
here, speaks of seeing a newly painted cab on
Oxford street, with the Sritieh and rebel flies
crossed on tbe panel, and little seeeesion flag
for sale on tbe street. At the Adeiphi Theatre,
oontrollod by Dion Bouroioault, where tbe Oc
toroon was playing, tbe Stars and 'Stripes,
which bad floated tbere, were wrapped around
tbe staff, and tbe Stars and Bars displayed.
Tbe government has intelligence from Ma
nassas to-day that still more troops have arriv
ed from tbe south. Jeff. Davis, anticipating an
attack, is adding every available man to Bean
regard and Johnson's army.
The report that a Maryland regiment bad
been captured on tbe upper Potomac, grew out
of the iaot that a Captain and thirteen men
were tbe otber day taken prisoners on tbe up
per Potomac
[Herald's Correspondence.]
tumor was to- that
the government bad deoidad last night to sur
render Blidell and Mason. It is without any
tounaatian woatever.
Up to eleven o'clock to-night, Lord Lyons has
made no communication from bis government
to tbe President or Secretary of State relative
to tbe seizure of the traitors Mason and Sll
dell. . v
Mr. Adams in hie communication to Mr. Sew-
sri, give a elear and detailed idea of the feel
ings of the British people and tbe sentiment of
tbe British statesmen, but does not Indicate
that he knows tbe purport of tbe instructions of
tbe English governmeut to JLiord Lyons. Noth
ing contained in Mr. Adams's dispatches Indi
cates that that Government will make any ex
orbitant demaudsjrelative to tbe seizure of the
traitors. This is not only true, but ( am per
mitted to announce by high official authority
Ubat private letters received to-day from distin
guished British statesmen assert that tbe British
government will . not demand tbe release of
Mason end Slidell, but will require such repar
ation as tbe United States oan honorably grant.
This is Also confirmed by other private corres
pondence of Americans in London, who have
facilities lor learning the intentions Of tbs Brit
ish government. . ,.; ':

tha present no of drovers hare been coming to thla .
manes we oars a closing nay ueiier loan in opening. .
With the exception of a few freeh tote, there are torv '
oattle for sale, but what are here to-day will realisv .
as avenge, lor tae mtudiing grades or stock, (3W4 a - -head
mors thtn they would yesterday. And tbe Isat-
alee yeelerday of all the common sort of stock were
better than tbe morning sales. The morning tnds wss
slowi thebulohers were all engroeeedorer tbesreatshow
prise ballooketb (reataeterer seen In this market
until afternoon, and tben tbey went to work with a will,
ana nought mora cattle in two hours than we erer law
ohang bands tn so shorts time before. Although we
mate rery little ohang In th figures or onr table of
quotations, except for prise bullocss, the market on the
whole Is better and for Christies week mnet be account
rery fair, considering the great aupply wa have had
th market for serenl weeks, and tbe pressure of en
Immense supply of pork and cheap poultry. And It la
worthy of note, ss an Indication of the future, that Ihe
business oloses better thla week than It has for tbrss
months; ana If we era not again overwhelmed with num
bers, there Is a fair chance for an advene of price. -. ',
W n.Te, as we hare all along anticipated, seen choli s
bullocks Nil before Christmas at prices equivalent to
cents a pound for tha meat, and In one Inetsncs, if
gross weight Is correotly stated, at over II cents, per
heps over twelve cents. And wa hare never seen so
maoy bullocks together that would be counted prlte ani
mate in a lat came snow, as stooa in tne yarns jesteraay
morning. W belter there were over three hundred
head that would dress fiom 900 to 1 800 t of beef each,.
ana tbe greatest portion or them Tory superior quality,
which they owed to mixture of Durham blood.
