Washington, April 27 10 p. m.
The Post Office Department has received informa--
tion of certain regulations established Ly the Ger-
man Austrian Postal Union, requiring slight modi
fications ol the instructions contained in tlie postal
tables of the 13th October last, relative to the -Uni-.
' ted States and Prussian closed mail. The changes
I are, that the postage on letters by said closed -mail
. ,to. China, the East Indies, and to countries beyond
the East Indies, is required to be prepaid, instead
' rdf pre-paj-mcnt being optional. To the PapalStates
the single rate of postage is thirty-five cents, pre
ixpayment optional, being the full postage to desti
a nation. To the kingdom of the Two Sicillies, and
- to Italy except Bombardy, Modena, Parma, Tus
cany, and the Papal States the rate required to be
prepaid is thirty cents, being the United States and
-.a Prussian postage only. With reference to the
Prussian closed mail, it is remarked that in many.
r instances letters which should come in this mail,
particularly from the southern partot (aermany, are
f . i . it :i t?
t recciveu m Uie open man, yuejuijy iu jiiuuw,
: thus rendering them subject to much higher rates
of postage, and it is suggested that -writers would
aid greatly toward correcting this irregularity by
requesting their correspondents in Germany to in-
,,form themselves as to the correct rates of postage,
and to mark their letters especially to be forwarded
in. the "Prussian closed mail via Ostend and Lon
don." It is to be observed, also, that a pre-pay-ment
in either country of less than the combined
rate of thirty cents on a letter goes for nothing.
The statement about the revocation of the "Cali
fornia Mail Contract,1' as' it was termed, has been
ridiculously blundered. The facts are, Messrs.
1 'Wood ward and Chorpenningheld a contract forcar
, Tying a mail between Sacramento, California and
Salt Lake compensation fourteen thousand dollars
a year. In consequence of complaints of mail fail
ures, Mr. Hubbard, late Postmaster General, took
the service from them and gave it to W. L. JBlancli
ard, at fifty thousand dollars a year. The only ap
parent reason for this enormous increase of pay is
the insertion of a clause providing, in vague terms,
for the establishment of a military post. .As the
Post Office Department has not yet assumed the
duties of the War Department, the value of the
clause can readily be estimated. It has recently
, come to light that the failures of the mail under the
.former contract arose from the trifling fact that one
: of the contractors was shot whilst in the discharge
of the duty. Upon these facts being ascertained,
Judge Campbell very properly rescinded the con
tract withBlanchard; and revived the former con
' tract with the surviving contractor, thus doing-jus
tice, and saving a largo sum of money besides.
A recent despatch, stating that Mr A. Birdsall is
an applicant for the post of Consul at Valparaiso, is
utterly without foundation in fact, Ilis name has
never been presented to the President in connection
with that office, nor is he a candidate for it.
Richard K.. Meade, of Virginia, was appointed to
day Minister to Chili, vice Mr. Peyton, removed.
Also, Mr. Angel, of New York, a Barnburner, to a
-consulship. A great many rumors of other appoint
ments are flying about, but they are not reliable.
Mr. Meade's appointment is not considered by the
Virginians from Accomack a wise selection, but I
i ink it a very judicious one.
It is stated that quite an exciting discussion took
placfin the cabinet to-day, upon our Indian rela
tions, probably including a review of Gov. Lane's
recent belligerent demonstration.

Washington, April 27 Midnight.
The cabinet have had a long and heavy 'day's
Avork upon the foreign catalogue to-day, but except
ing Mr. Meade, of Virginia, for Chili, nothing posi
tively is known, nor is it conveniently accessible to
ascertain this evening. Rumor has it pretty confi
dently that Mr. Dix is appointed to Prance, which
may be so, but we think it extremely doubtful. We
have had good reasons for considering Mr. Wise, of
Virginia, as having for some time been virtually de
cided upon for France, from the claims of his State
and his own personal claims, dating particularly
from the Baltimore Convention. Nor are we aware
that Mr. Dix has signified any dissatisfaction with
his appointment asSubtreasurer.

Dillays, of Syracuse, for Brussels.

high rates of wages in this country. What is like

In the Banner, of yesterday, we fiud ' the
following paragraph: . ' ' ' .'.
"We can readily understand how, upon a very
slight hint from Washington, Mr.Ewing from prop
erleelings of self-respect, pride or delicacy, would
at once decide upon not permitting his name to be
used in competition with that of Mr. Johnson, or
any other gentleman of the party m this State
whom the -"powers lhatbe,"al-Vashington, should
see fit to express a preference for, as their candidate
for the gubernatorial chair of Tennessee.
The Banner says this, in the face of Mr. Swing's
declaration that he had declined the use of his name
in connection with the nomination, before he re
ceived any letter from Washington on the subject
Mr. Ewing was in favor of Mr. Johnson's nomina
tidn from the first, and so declared himself again
and again. The letter he received from Washing
ton, and to which the Ban ner refers as evidence of
Washington dictation, was written by the Hon.
Gkorge V. Jones, a citizen of our own State, who
naturally felt a great interest in Ihe action of the
party here. It was a letter from one friend to an
other, intended merely a3 the exp.cssion of private
opinion for the general good of the party, and long
before its receipt Mr. Ewing had refused to his
friends the use of his name. He was not influ
enced by any "feeling of self-respect, pride, or del
icacy," as to an intimation from "the powers that
be" at Washington, in taking this course, and the
Banner does him great Injustice in making such an
insinuation. Mr. Jones' letter merely stated rea
sons why Mr. JonNSON should be the nominee. The
idea of predicating upon such a letter the charge of
"Washington dictation" is ridiculous, and would
never have been thought of exccptTjy the editor of
the Banner, whose peculiar hobby it was in former
years. Our neighbor rode this hobby to death years
ago, and now, for lack of something else, ho has re
surrected its ghost to frighten old women and chil
dren with. If he don't dismount soon, we will
christen him "Death on the Pale Horse."

Immediately after tlie' vessel touched, most pf tho
passengers came' on deck;. therocks were distinctly
visible, reaching auout two teet above water anu
about a quarter of 'a mile from the beach; the surf
was high; and a series of breakers stretched along
the beach, dashing over the rocks with violence.

two miles, when the water was found to be rushing
in with fearful rapidity. At this time there vvas
hot much excitement or confusion on board; the
steerage passengers were quiet, and tho' ladies be
haved remarkably well. Men were stationed with
buckets to keep the water down; it gained rapid
ly, however, and Its pressure forced open the fur
Capt. Steene. a passenger, then advised Capt.
Sampson to beach her, which was done; as soon as
she struck the engines stopped working, there was
a very high surf between the vessel and the beach,
rendering communication with the shore apparent
ly perilous. The passengers were orderly enough
until the fire broke out; they saw the smoke com-
mg.up lrom below, , and some -.sited the Uapt. and
crew if the ship was on fire; they answered no, and
that there was no danger. They believed them
selves safe, evenas to the preservation of their bag
gageand so great was this feeling of- security, that
some of the ladies remained .in bed. When the
flames began to burst forth, and the 'alarm of fire
was sounded, confusion and fright began to reign,
men seemed deprived of reason by excess of terror,
and leaped into, the sea, where, they buffeted the
waves frantically, and then went down 'like lead.
The first boat that was sent to communicate by line
with the shore, was swamped; the sailors clung to
her and were thrown in safety upon the beachJ
Another boat was started under the guidance of
Capt. Steene; this succeeded in reaching tlie shore
with a line.
The flames now began to rage with redoubled
violence, tlie wind driving tho smoke aft, so that
most of the passengers congregated about the bows;
a scene of terror, confusion and suspense ensued
which baffles description; many were so frightened
that they made scarce any effort to swim, but went
down without a struggle; others, cast back and for
ward by the powerful surf, battered and bruised
against the rocks, gave up the fight and sank from
sheer exhaustion. Most of the passengers had as
sembled upon the bows to escape the ' driving
flames and suffocating smoke; a group of nine re
mained upon the poop until driven td the water by
the heat; one of their number, seized with a sudden
panic; leaped overboard to a floating spar, missed it
and was drowned; the others acting more deliber
ately, reached tlie shore. But few were saved by
the boats but two boat-loads, we understand; most
of those who were saved floated ashore upon the
spars, benches, and other articles thrown overboard.
Many of the ladies were saved by the buoyancy of
their inflated clothing, which enabled them to float
upon the water.
The following net of devotion, and its unfortunate-result,
is sad to relate: A Mr. Taylor swam to
the shore Avith his child upon his back', and placed
the infant in safety upon the bank; then, through
the masses of wreck, through floating spars and
struggling swimmers, he made his way back to
wliere he had left his wife clinging, in the water, to
the rudder post. He bore jier also to the beach,
but sho had been so much bruised by being repeat
edly dashed against tho ship's bottom by the heavy
W9.ves, that she did not survive to bless her hus
band for his devotion. She died on board the Me
Mr. Saunders,, and 'four others, floated three miles
out to sea, upon, a hen-coop. They were picked up
by Capt. Sampson, who went to their relief in a
boat The water was chillingly cold, and they
were completely exhausted, and. benumbed with
clinging, beneath' its surface for several hoiirs.'to
their frail raft. It is supposed that many floated out
to sea and were lost, as the tide was on the ebb.
There was an eddy at the bow, and some were
drowned by being drawn under by the suction of
the sail that had been passed beneath.
There were four boats in all, three of which were
of iron; they were capable of holding ten persons
each. A gentleman, whosename we did not learn,
attempted to swim ashore with his.cliild upon his
back, and supporting his wife with a handkerchief
to which she clung; she was torn away, but man
aged to cling to a rope, while he proceeded and
saved the child. He then returned to his wife, and
they both started again. Just then a person jump
ed from the ship, aud falling, struck the lady upon
the head; sho Avas stunned, and immediately sank,
despite her husband's efforts; the latter floated to
sea upon a spar; he was an Englishman, and a good
swimmer, but was exhausted with his efforts; he
was about to let go in despair, when a fellow pas
senger hard by cried out to him to hold, a boat was
coming. He-did so, and was saved.
A great number of passengers sustained them
selves in the water by clinging to tho cable stretched
to the shore. This cable was suddenly slackened,
lotting the unfortunates down into the water.
Many were drowned by this, including several la
dies; but few were saved by clinging to the rope.
Capt. Sampson and Dr. Watch, a passenger on
board, threw over doors, trunks, and other articles
to the swimmers. Many of those in the water
were continually cryingj, shrieking, and praying,
rendering the spectacle piteous in the extreme.
The Captain behaved with presence of mind and
courage; he was the last man to leave the ship;
most of the crew left early. Those who first reached
tlie shore did all that lay in their power to assist
the others. The steward, James Harrison, among
others, was indefatigable in his exertions.
As the swimmers approached the shore, planks
were thrown out to them, and those that had re
gained a little strength waded out into the surf to
lend a helping hand to their comrades; many, as
they came in, fell exhausted upon the sand, where
they kvy motionless for half an hour, completely
prostrated with extreme exertion The ladies dis
played tbe utmost kindness and consideration; they
tended upon, the sufferers, supplied them from tho
scanty wardrobes, they had saved with articles of
clothing (for many of tho poor- wretches came ut
terly naked to, tlie Jiind,). and: made canvass shoes to
protect their Xeefc while' ' travcllin-r the island in

but the liquid they contained was so impregnated
with salt as to be -useless. On Thursday they ob

of quenching their thirst. Afterwards they man

furnishedscant supply of braokish witer, which'

Gentlemen : As, the time approaches fdr the
meeting of the nominating convention of this Con
gressional District, I am in receipt of so many iu
qunieanlf Solicitations from iny old- frieiitls and
supporters, that I must ask the privilege t once to
. respond to them all through your columns,
I had hot before deemed it . necessary to do. this,
because, in my public speeches two years ago, I
distinctly declared my intention not again to place
myself before the people lbr election. At that time
the Democrats confidently anticipated success in
the State, and no one anticipated such a change as
the Legislature has since made in the foim and po
litical character of the District. My determination
was. therefore, independent of the circumstance to
. which it might now very naturally be attributed.
For ten years successively, I have borne the bur
den of contest in the old district, besides engaging
actively in the three Presidential elections which
have intervened. In all these contests and dbring
the whole eight years of my service in Cdngress,
tbe pedple have extended to me a generous confi
dence, allowing me that liberty of thought and ac
- tion, without which- I-would be unwilling to occu
py any . position. These circumstance-- have ex
cited in my bosom warmer feelings towards my
democratic friends than it is in my power to ex
press, and would prevent me from, at any time, re
fusing td serve them in any field in which they
should demand my services. They have over
looked minor differences of opinion, leaving hie
that independence which I prize so much, and have
borne me to victory in four well contested elections.
No fear of defeat and disaster would induce me to
desert them at any hour when my exertions may
be deemed important.
But I cannot believe that at the present juncture
there can be any thing of peculiar value in my ser
vices. The new administration has commenced its
course witfi promise of unexampled popularity and
brilliant success. The next Congress will be large
ly Democratic in both branches, and although there
are great public interests connected with the pe
culiar position of this Congressional District, I do
not think my success in promoting their interests,
warrants the belief that I woul t be more service
able than others who might be selected.
From these considerations, as well as from the
desir; to puisne my private interests, which have
beer, much deranged by my public service, I feel
it incumbent upon me to retire from the political
field aud leave tho labors and honors of the combat
to other men. Confident that others will be se
lected, quite as acceptable to the people, and per
haps capable of being far more useful. I ask t hat my
uame may not be presented to the Convention. '
I am, Very Bespectfully,
Your obedient servant,

To persons who contemplate engaging- in the Cotton busi
