The mm of the Chronotype, in his last is
rat. asks U anma vary silly questions ia rc
g*rd to to the mail carrying. We are neith
contractor, carrier nor conductor of tho
mails, and cons-iqaently cannot auswer. We
pad tell when tho mails arrive, wLen thev
depart, and what they brin* but what be-
Oiae* of wfcat we send away. it ia not our

We have said thU all mall placed in the
ttfice, have been sent regularly out. This
is all wo have to say regarding that matter.
The malicious attack* of "iho people of the
Chrcnotype" notwithstan ling. The envious
attack upon us by the Chrunotypo is only in
keeping with his unbounded and unrelenting
abuse of every man whose views favor the
present Administration, from the President
down to our wilier-woman.
Queries Nos. 1,2, 3,4, and 5 being matters
oat of our range of knowledge and buaiuesa,
we will not answer.
Mr. Eggleston, Chief Clerk in the office,
informs us that Mr. FuUom came, mculo some
inquiries, received civil and plea?aut answers
and went away apparently satisfied.

Not a word of truth is contained in the
intimations of query 7, and finally, we shall
not soon trespass «p^n the patiencc of our
readors with matters that can in no way
become oar business to answer. If there is
a remissness of duty in delivering or send

charge, but we have no knowledge of any
tbirg of the kind. Should thurc be any we
will answer honorably and fairly whe 1 ap

The facta in the case, as near as we could
gather, and carefully compare the different
Versions, are about as follows, viz
Over one year ago a company of gentle
taen made claim of the site of old Fort Cal
houn, upon which they surveyed a town, built
one house and made some other improve
ment, and at the time of the affray, were,
by an agent, building a Public Hauso or Ho
tel, on the site. The cubin was occasionally
occupied by some of the party of claimants,
audit contained some articles of cookery,
tabic implements, Ac., Ac., whon, about
thr«eor four weeks ago, a man by the name
of Davis took possession, as he allcdges, by
permission of some of tho owners but this
ts contradicted by the other party. Mr. Da
vis, it seems, intended to make the "town
claim" his own for a farm, and had com
menced jdowing and making other improve
ments thereon, and had sued the agent of tho
company, who was erecting the llotel, for
trespass, and got judgment against him for
building upon tho site. The proprietors
meantime sent notice, warning Mr. Davis to
leave their cl.iim peacefully, and finally no
tified him thaS u[Kn a certain day they would
put him oQ if not already gono. Thereupon
Mr. Daris made affidavit before the County
Judge that his life and property were threat
ened, and the Judge ordered out a posse to
protect him. Seventeen men, mostly armed,
were on hand at the house at the time desig
nated, when tho other parly of twenty-eight
rode up the spokesman required Mr. Davis
to evacuate the premises forthwith or suffer
the consequences. This the party refused to
do. Hard words passed, and ero any one
was aware of a positivo intention on either
part to fight, a pistol was fired, which was
tbe tocsin for a general engagement, iu which
the party inside the house had the decided
advantage. Mr. Go*s, one of the attacking
party, was shot through the heart and in
stantly expired, aud three others werewouu
ded, whilst no one inside w.u injured. It is
hard to say by whom or which party the fir
ing first commenced—both parses disclaim

charged with the oause, and is expect-.d to
right the matter up. If n$ letters arrive he
is blamed, and perhaps charged with detain

certainly. If correspondents are ilow in an

A Post mas:ei should not stop to eat or sleep,
bnt should be ready at any moment whon
called upon, at any hour, seasonable or un
seasonable, no ra-Ucr. People may loutge
for hours around stores or shops contentedlv
and uncoi eerued, but to be obliged to wait
whilst the ^ostmastor or clerk eats "a haaty
plate of soup," that is an outrage an im
position^ and is reason sufficient for the re
moval of the Postmaster.

he has one or ten bushels of mail fc» assort

quick and decisive, as ho must jjerfcrully do,
somebody is insultod or their tend* feelings
hurt most sadly. Refuse to let otde behind
the bar, as should be the cosd, and ono is
t"ld that he is getting quite stiff, sod too big
for his jacket, and should one be Mowed to
go inside for the ueccs»try transact on of busi
ness, the Postmaster is charged urtth a loose
ness and negligence iu the transition of the
duties of his office. If letters an not adver
tised, he is a "careless scamp," »ud if adver
tised, he is cursed for charging an extra two
cents. If mails do not regululSr arrive, he
is held accountable for the deliiquency and
a minute statement of the reatoo required,
and should a letter or paper fai' to arrive at
its destination, he MCoT accoun\ therefor iu
stanter. He must furnish payer, ink, pen,
vafors, and envelopes, write th« address on
the letter, and some:imcs the hiter itself,
and if he refuses to chargc a fiv»i dollar bill
to get three cents postage, he is very una
bliging. If he strictly ad'.ieres to the postal
laws and requirements, he is mean and arbi
trary but if not rigid and is a little anient,
he is careless of the public trust »nd ihotild
be removed at once. Such is s portion of
the trials of patience always attending the
duties of Postmaster. All men *xn tinf. lmur
ever, grumb ers and whiners, but there are
always many hom rable exceptions, but there
are generally enough to whine and grumble
at any thing and every thing.
Tlmuk'eo, Sir*!
If asy thing fkok scch a sorsct could elate
us, we shou'd feel immensely flattered by the
extensive attention paid us by our neighbor
down street. Two or thrco columns per
week is no small testimonial of our impor
tance, in his estimation. We are forced, in
most cases, to cline his pressing importu
nate to reply, for we see nothing ti» answer,
and besides, we could not devote so much
space, to Compliment, even tho President
himself. Si rry we can't be obliging, since
so anxious, but we have'nt the room
to bestow hi in a benefit. Our advertising
friends won't agree to be crowded out.
Postage ou Newspapers.
All of our readers may not be aware that
the postage on the Bugle, if paid quarterly in
advance, is but half cent a paper, whereas*
if not paid thus, the rate by law is two cents
per paper. It is not the duty of the Post
Master to retain papers on the account of
non-payment of p^stago. but it is his duty
to collect the fourfold rate when pre-paymcnt
been negiocted. Every newspaper read
er should tako note of this, aud thereby save
75 cents a year on one newspaper.
Afplss (green) are selling in our market
for $2 per bushel—Peaches at $4.
