| Office, Pennsylvania Jtvenue, between Third and
J Four-and-a-half streets.
I erin the lust number of the Columbus
t I I j Times, Mr. Forsytii says:
I i "The editor of the Griffin Union is welcome 1
I | to his malicious opinions and interpretations, so
I long as his prejudiced judgments are subject to
I 0 | revision by an intelligent and just public. We (
are not surprised that a parasite of the Cobb <
coalition with Whiggism in Georgia, should not '
sea virtue in our purposes in Washington. We J
did not expect to be forgiven in that quarter for (
\ an effort to block the wheels of the finality
I | humbug. Our object was to expose the hollow
hypocrisy of the Democratic leaders, under the i
, delusive cry of "Union" hod seduced a few of the <
I I rank and file into an utter abnegation of the '
I I great State Rights principles, which underlie 1
the true Democratic creed. The Union's friend, !
Mr. Cobb, happened to be in Washington at '
the some time we were?but the Griffin editor J
gees nothing amiss in thnt visit. We suppose ,
he was negotiating railroad bonds?but he cauie i
back without getting a premium for hi* bonds I
?in New York or his polities in Washington. 1
The fate of Maj. Donelson. who has acted or
the infatuated belief that Gov. Cobb was the
Southern Democracy, is an index to the degree j
of his success. (
I The editor is mistaken in another thing. We
were not trying to make peace with Cobb,
Foo'e & Co. Our efforts were directed to the
end of preventing these gentlemen from converting
the Democratic party into a miserable
double of that most miserable of all parties,
the Southern C. U. party. We had no thought
or care for the alliance of the Whigelected-gov
ernors of Georgia and Mississippi. We were
content to leave them where they bad placed
I themselves, in the embraces of the anti-State
Rights pnrty of their respective States?we
were content to leave them, where their derelie
tion of principle had left them?stranded high
and dry on the shore of political shipwreck?con
temned by all true State Righls Democrats
whom they had deserted, and. dropped Ly the
Whigs with whom they had allied themselves
We were for making a plutform for the Democratic
State Rights people, leaving such leadeis
as Cobh and Foote to take care of themselves:
quite sure that, they would either have to follow
after V|io great party whose principles they had
trampled upon, or join the federalists; and
equally sure that whatever they did, thev had '
lost their power for much mischief or good.
The Eufaula (Ala.) Spirit of the South,
alluding to the B dtitnore nominating conven- ,
tions, says thnt, after both nominations are made,
the Southern Rights parly of that State will i
hold a convention at Montgomery, to determine 1
the course to be pursued by them in reference I
I to the Presidential convention. 1

1MPEK. C
The approach of Congress calls for the renewal ?
)f my proposals and preparations to spread us d
lebates before the public. The success which n?s
litberto attended this undertaking it is hoped wnl a
continue, and enable me to perpetuate the tull
listory of the proceedings and discussions of tne r
jody on which the destiny of the Republic uelends.
'
The adoption of Congress has given the Gi n?t
in official character as the reporter of all that is 1
taid and done in the body. .This sanction lias
jeen voted at every successive session for many n
fears, and by members of ull parties. The press,
.00, of all parlies has borne testimony to the ffael- '
ty with which the duty thus confided has been
performed. The annexed notices, taken at ran- 0
lorn from the general expression in favor of tne
avork, are submitted in proof of its fullness, lair- c
less, and usefulness. 1 am compelled to omit, 1
7or want of room, a page of notices which are in
:ype
The great celerity with which the lefter-w tcrs '
for the distant press circulate through the teic- 8
'raph their hurried accounts and views of me '
debates of Congress, renders more important than ?
ever tlie full and exact official reports of the Congressional
Globe. The hasty, and in many
instances tx parte, relations by telegraph of wnat
occurs in Congress supersede, for the most pari,
the eyact reoorts taken down bv reoorters, ana
wnich formerly, in a shape more or less abbreviated,
went the rounds of the press. Now Uie
telegraph accounts, with all their imperfections
and variety of colorings, take the run of the country,
and no press but the official of Congress ever
Eublishes the full debate with the proceedings of
oth Housesuninutiluted. Indeed, no newspaner
can give them, and have room for advertisement
and the miscellaneous matter essential to their existence.
While, therefore, the telegraph administers
to the eager appetite ofthe public forCongress
news, and meets the necessities of the political
press, by furnishing a rapidly-written epitome
suited to the taste of its patrons, perfect information
of what passes in Congress is greatly diminished.
The circulation ofthe official reports tins
been, to some extent, cut off by the crude anu
diversified accounts which, flying nlong the electric
w;res, satisfies curiosity, and it is almost in vain
that truth puts on his boots to follow. Still there
are a great many men of leisure and thought wno t
like to see wl at is actually said and done in Cou. ;
gress, and to judge for themselves, rather than to I
receive impressions altogether from galvanic bat J
teries. There are others, loo, who, for the sane I
of the future, willingly patronize a work whicii j t
oreserveBa full record of the doings ol the great I
moving anil controlling power of the Republic r
The undersigned has made preparations com 9
inensurate with the increased importance of tn r
Juty he has undertaken as the only reporter and t
publisher of the complete debates and proceeding* f
if both Houses of Congress. The coming see a
don will probably be extended nine months, am I

Congressional Globe 2nd Appendix.
The Congressional Globe is made up of the ''
laily proceedings of the two Houses of Congress, 2
tnd printed on a double royal paper, with small *
ype, (brevier and nonpareil,) in quarto form, '
:ach number containing sixteen rov?! quarto "
rages. The speeches of the Membev,,in this hrst n
V?rm, are sometime condensed?/'//full report 01 n
he prepared speeches being reserved for tne Ar- 2
kkdix. All resolution*, motions, anu omrr prn .eedings,
are given 1,1 tl?? form of the Journals, 5
with the yeas and nay* on every im|>oriau[ qumion.
''
The Appenpie is made up of the President's
Annual Message, the Reports of the principal
Jfficersof the Government that accompany it, and
ill Speeches of Members of Congress, written '
rut or revised by themselves. It is printed in tue e
?ame form ns the Congressional Globe, and h
isually makes about (he same number of pares P
luring a sea>-ion. . *
During the first month or six weeks of a ** - 5
tion, there is rarely more business done than will l>
nake two numbers a week?one of the Conor**- f
hovel Globe and one of the A ppendix ; but durng
the remainder of a session, there is usually
lufficient matter for two or three number* of each fi
:very week. The next session will be unusually tl
nteresting ; therefore, we calculate that the Com- a
:a vision al Globe and Appendix together will n
nake at least &i00 large quarto pages, printed in tl
imall type?brevier and nonpareil. VV e furnish ?
torn nine Indexes to both at the end of a session.
We will endeavor to print a sufficient number of g
luriiluscopies to sunply all that ma v be miscarried, ,
ir lost in the mails; but subscribers should be
rery particular to file their pRpers carefully, for
ear that we ahoufH not be able to supply iui the
ost numbers.
If subscribers shall not be satisfied with the
work, the money paid by thci#for it will be re- i
un<led to them whenever they return the numbers
which have been received by them. I will give ?
he subscription price for any previous volumes of |,

will thank any person who will let me have them. ^
I have a few copies of the hnck volumes of the
DovonEtsiONAL Gi.obe and Appendix for sale at

PREPARATORY NOTICE.
The enterprise in which-we now embark, and
r which this paper is at once the cominencemer t,
id a sample of the papers that are to follow, 1 ae
ir its aim no less a purpose, than to impart inruction,
in the general and detail, to the Officer
id Agents of the American public, in respect both
i their duties and their rights, and to make them,
id the people at large, acquainted with theorganation,
decisions and action of the Executive detriments
of their Government. There has hith to
been no vehicle for the regular and proper
immunication of information of this kind. The
ublication of the Laws and the issue of instruc
ons, more or less comprehensive, and at interval*
tore or less extended, have proved wholly inadeuate,
in. the absenceof the construction of those
aws,as applied to particular cases, and of details
nd illustrations to make the regulations and in
tructiona intelligible. The valuable documents
nnuully reported to Congress, are too voluminous?
nd are printed in quantities too small for general
irculation; whilst the debates in Congress and
te commentaries of the press upon their proceed
tgs, and the proceedings of the Executive branch
f the Government, besides turning mostly upon
eneral principles, address themselves only to
arty ends, and to matters of national policy*
"hese publications in their various forms are
ighly useful in themselves as far as they go, and
ome of them indispensable; but there is much
hat do not reach the hands of all, nor if they did,
o they furnish those rules, methods, and exumles,
for the despatch of the public business which
an render the discharge of publicduty either safe
r easy, whether in respect to the incumbent himelf,
or the department or bureau under which he
cts. We shall make an honest effort to supply
bis vacuum, and to provide for these necessities,
f we succeed in rendering the functions of the
riinary offices more uniform, methodical, and ex
ct, we shall make the administrative duties of the
epartments more easy and effective, and thereby
remote the real and substantial interests of the
ountry And this we expect to do, to some ex
ent at least?apart fVom, and indepedently to
ny jlarty or personal interest or question ? hatver.
It is known to most of those to whom this pa
>er will be sent, that the Senior Editor was Audi
or of the Post-Office Department until the month
f November last; with by far the larger portion
f both postmasters and contractors, he has had
irect intercourse, in person or by letter. He enered
the department fourteen years since, and for
lany years previously, had been, first in the Wsr
)epartment, ard subsequently in the Treasury,
le has therefore had the best opportunities for
nderstanding the arrangements of business in ab
be departments, and being acquainted with those
.'ho carry it on. Since his official connection with
ip (invprnmpnl rpn<tf?f{. h#* flnMpra himviJr hn ha*
reserved the respect and regard of most of the
resect incumbents of the departments, and is on
ecotning terms of intercourse and civility with
lem all. The Junior Editor has been asssiduously
ngaged for several years, in studying, by perms!
inquiry and examination, the practical and
aily routine and details of the Post-Office and
tii?#4iranclies of the public business. It is with
lis stock of experience, and these advantage* for
aching the various sources of administrative ac
on, and for imparting minute and illustrative in
auction, and valuable periodical and statistics
iformation, that we challenge your confident
nd solicit your support and patronage.
We have fixed upon the l.Vh of each montli as
le dny for the publication of our paper, so an to
fiord time for obtaining from the departments
II the orders, notices anuchange* issued, or madt
y them during the preceding month. Tables of
'ost Offices, and compilations of the Laws and
Legulations, are issued by the Post Office Depaptlent
only once in two or three years. It is a
latter of inconvenience and complaint, for which
itherlo there has been no remedy, that iri one
tonth from the time of these issues, there are ofces
in the tables which are no longer in operation,
nd offices in operation tyhich are not in the table*
it this time there are perhaps over three thousand
ffices of the two description*. In like manner
iws have been passed and regulations established
ince the issue of the last volume of regulations,
f which many postmasters and others are wholly
piorant. We propose to prevent, for the present,
ny increase or the evil of either kind, and from
re time another issue shall be made, our paper
rill furniah the additions, corrections, and modifi'
itions, made in each month, and by being filed
nd preserver'., will afford to postmasters full and
xact information upon both subjects, up to and
tr time being. How much of the present misdi
rction, remailing, doubt, confusion, error, and
nposition, will be saved by the progressive stair
f full arid exact knowledge, for which we havr
rovided, and for which ws engage, every intelli
ent postmaster can estimate for himself.
These advsntages alone and independently of all
thers, are worth man v times the price we charge
>r the paper, and will, it is hoped, indace every
ostmaster who feels a Just pride in his office or
patriotic regard for the credit, prosperity, and
ficieney of the whole Post Office system?si once
> subscribe. The same considerations apply to
ie orders and notices, decision*, and instructionr
the War, Navy, Treasury, Suite, and Interior
epartments, and the same course is intended ir
>spect to them. Notice* of the decisions of the
upreme Court, in cases turning upon question 1
f official duly or national interest, will find a plac
i this pai*r.

PRACTICE in tne Supreme Court of

iiins against the United States, or Foreign Govnments.
!ir :-After consulting many persons interested in
e principal Rail-Roads in the United States, the
idersigned propose to establish agencies in this
ly and in New York, for the purpose of collectg
full and authentic Rail-Road statistics and
ch other information as will enable them to serve
irsons desiring to invest in Rail-Road securities,
to procure information ofany matters connected
ith the construction and administration of Railoads.
They also propose, especially, to urge
ion Congress a modification of the laws relatg
to contracts for carrying the mail, so as toauorizs
the Post Office Department to contract for
e perpetual use of Rail-Roads, and, instead of
Lying, as now, quarterly on contracts for four
cars, to advance in five per cent, bonds of the
nited States, chargeable upon the revenues of
le Post Office Department,an amount, the inteist
upon which at 6 per cent, would equal the
syments now made.
The government now pays $300 per mile fcr
irrying the mail on first class flail-Roads. This
16 per cant, on $5,000. The undersigned would
rge that, instead of paying *300 a mile, per anum,
the Department should deliver, on acontraet
perpetuity, five $1,000 bonds, bearing an inte
ist of five per centum. At this rate the charge
r?on the Department would be reduced from $300
>$.'250 a mile, per annum, and the $50 per mile
ived would create a sinking fund which will, in a
:wyeara,pay otfthe Bonds,and give the use of such
x?ds forever thereafter, free of all charge ; therey
effecting a vast saving on the present annual
xpenditures of the Po *t Office Department, and
consequent reduction of the rates of postage.
The effect will be no less advantageous to Bail
Load Companies than to the government. For
istance, such a contract would give to the Laltilore
and Ohio Rail-Road Company more than
2,000,000, which would enable that cotnple :e its
oad at an early day, and greatly increase its 1 unless
and profits.
But to meet objectiohs and impress the p. blic
nind with a proper sense of the benefits to result
rom this measure will require concert of action
,nd continued active effort, thrpugh the press and
*herwise. The undersigned tender their services
a your Company, expecting a reasonable comsensation,
parity contingent upon the success or
the measure ; and i*spectfully suggest the propriety
of your Bending ou? or more delegates to
his city, on the first Wedenbday in December
ext. to confer with delegates from other Railload
Companies, as to the details of the propond
arrangement and the best mode of bringing the
ubject before Congress.
Hoping to hear from you at your earliest con.
