THROUGH PASSAGE TO CALIFOR.YIA THE public will be grutitied to learn tliut die 1 Untied Slates Mail Steamship Company areenibled to uniiounce that their arrangements are now complete for sending passengers through from New A'ork to San Francisco and back. In the first attempts of this Company to meet ihe wants of truvel to California, by providing j ships on the Pacific, in connection with their shins frotu New York to Chagres, they were prevailed upon, at the urgent solicitation of the great number then desirous lo go out, to sell tickets for through passages from Panama in advauce, for their ships then going round. This was done from a desire to accommodate those who could procure passages in no other quarter, and by which, whatever might be the detention, they would reuch San Francisco sooner than by any other line. Unforeseen difficulties, and the prevail...... r-i,?.. at llir, lis Janeiro at the time, pre- I vented their ships from reaching Panama as soon as anticipated, and cuused detention at the Isthmus, which was increased by the impatience of passengers in going forwurd, against the advice --j-, ----- Tf i t j sliifi could possibly reach Panama. These interruptions are now all removed. Three of the four ships of the Company, intended for the Pacific service, have arrived at Panama, and several of them have performed trips to San Francisco and back. So that the Company are now able to give the public the assurance that the voyage through from New York to San Francisco, will be performed with regularity and despatch. Their Pacific Line, from Panama to San Francisco, consists of the REPUBLIC, Cnpt. Hi dson. 1THMUS, Cupt. Hitchcock. COLUMBUS, Capt. Peck. ANTELOPE, Capt. Ackiet. Their Atlantic and Gulf Line, from New York 10 Chagres, of the GEORGIA, Capt. Porter, U. S. N. OHIO, Capt. Schk.vck, U. S. N. FALCON, Capt. Hartstein, U. S. N. The connection between the two lines will be carefullly and regularly kept up, so that no delay beyond the usual stay of the ship in port at Punama, will arise. The large sizg, well known speed, and superior accommodations of their New York and Chagres Line, and the speed and accommodations of the ships of their Pacific Line, offer the most certain, rapid,and pleasant through passage to California.

The publishers have expended a large sum of money to get original drawings of machinery in practical use in this .country, and have procured almost every work on the sudjeot, whether published in England, France, or Germany, the most esiwsntial parts of which being comprised in this Die.ioiiary, render it as perfect and comprehensive as possible. The pi.Oli-h.-is have endeavored j 'otise great economy in type, so that each i age ol the wo.k contains at least four times the number of wor s found in ordinary pages of the *am>* -iz?*. This has also secuied to each plate wo k u -1 asms of ample siz- and clearness, so that a Mi ch nic may construct acctualely any machine described. The publisheis are, in short determined, regardless ol cost, to make the work as complete as possible ; and it is hoped every one desirous io obtain the work will procure it as issued in numbers, and thus encourage the enterprise, The work will be issued in semi-monihlv numbers, commencing in January, ItihO, ami will proJ gross wjt great regularity. The whole work will he published in 40 numbers at :25 cents per numbei, and completed within the current year, 1850. A liberal discount will be made to agents.

PREPARATORY NOTICE. The enterprise ill which we now emlrnrk, and J of which this paper is at once the commencement, , and a sample of the papers that are to follow, has ! tor lis turn no less a purpose, than to import in- | structioit, in the general and detail, to the Officers | and Agents of the American public, in respect both i to their duties and their rights, and to make them, [ and the people at large, acquainted with the organ-1 izatinn, decisions and action of the Executive dc-! partnients of their Government. There has hith- j' erto teen no vehicle for the regular und proper communication of information of this kind. The ! publication of the Laws and the issue of instruc- j lions, more or less comprehensive, und at intervals l more or less extended, have proved wholly inude-1 quale, in the absence of the construction of those j Laws, as applied to particular cases, and of details j and illustrations to make the regulations and in-1 ntructions intelligible. The valuable documents | annually reported to Congress,are too voluminous, j and are printed in quantities too smull for general circulation; whilst the debutes in Congress and j the commentaries of the press upon their proceed- ! ings, and the proceedings of the Executive branch I of the Government, besides turning mostly upon j general principles, address themselves only tol uarty ends, and to matters of nationul policy. ] These publications in their various forms are highly useful iii themselves us fur us they go, und i some of them indispensable; but there is much | i that tlo not reach the hands of all, nor if they did,' i do they furnish those rules, methods, and exam- j i pies, for t he despatch of the public business which I I can render the discharge of public duty either safe I i or easy, whether in respect to the incumbent him-1 1 self, or 'lie department or bureau under which lie i acts. We shall make an honest effort to supply ! tins vacuum, und to provide for these necessities. | If we succeed in rendering the functions of the j primary offices more uniform, methodical, and exact, we ahull make the administrative duties of the departments more easy and effective, and thereby promote the real and substantial interests of the j country. And tliia we expect to do, to some ex- i tent at least?upart from, and independently of any party or personal interest or question what- , ever. h is known to most of those to whom this p.vu.;n i,,, A ...a I tor of the Pool-Office Deportment until the month I of November Inst; with by far the larger portion | of both postmasters und contractors, he lias liatl I direct intercourse, in person or by lettor. He entered the department fourteen years since, und for ' many years previously, hud been, first in the War i ' Department, ui d subsequently in the Treasury. ) He has therefore had the best opportunities fgx understanding the arrangements of business in ull 1 the departments, and being acquainted with those | who carry it on. Since his official connection with i the Government ceased, he flatters himself he has ! preserved the respect and regard of most of the present incumbents of the departments, and is on j becoming terms of intercourse and civility with I them all. The Junior Editor has been asssidtiously engaged for several years, in studying, by per-1 sonal inquiry and examination, the practical und daily routine and details of the Post-Office und other branches of the public business. It is with j this stock of experience, and these advantages for j reaching the various sources of administrative action, and for imparting minute and illustrative instruction", and valuable periodical and statistical information, that We challenge your confidence and solicit your support and patronage. We have fixed upon the 15lh of each month ns \ the day for the publication of our paper, so as to I afford time for obtaining from the departments, all the orders, notices andchanges issued, or made by them during the preceding month. Tables of Post Offices, and compilations of the Laws and I Regulations, are issued by the Post Office Department only once in two or three years. It is u matter of inconvenience and complaint, for which hitherto there has been no remedy, that in one mouth from the time of these issues, there are offices in the tables which are no longer in ope ntion, and offices in operation which are not in the tallies. At this time there are perhaps over three thousand offic.es of the two descriptions. In like manner laws have been passed and regulations established since the issue of the last volume of regulations, of which many postmasters and others are wholly ignorant. VV'e propose to prevent, for the present, any increase of the evil of either kind, and from the time another issue shall be mude, our paper will furnish the additions, corrections, and modifications, made tn each month, and by being filed and preserved, will a (ford to postmasters full and exact information upon both subjects, up to and for time being. Mow much of the present misdirection, reinuiling, doubt, confusion, error, and imposition, will tie saved by the progressive state of full and exact knowledge, for which we have provided, and for which we engage, every intelligent postmaster can estimate for himself. These advantages alone and independently of all others, arc worth muny times the price we charge for the paper, and will, it is hoped, induce every postmaster who feels a just pride in his office, or I a patriotic regard for the credit, prosperity, and j efficiency of the whole Post Office system?at once to subscribe. The sumc* .considerations apply to|the orders and notices, decisions, and instructions of the War, Navy, Treasury, State, and Interior departments, and the same course is intended in respect to them. Notices of the decisions of the Supreme Court, in cases turning upon questions of official duty or national interest, will find a place in this paper. A department of our paper addressing itself not merely to postmasters and other officers of the J Government, but to all other citizens who give at- j tention to the affairs of the nation and the progress and dcvolopment of the country, will embrace in a | condensed form the matters submitted to, or arising in Congress. At each session a vast deul of j [ valuable information is communicated to Con-' gress, by the several departments and their subor- j (finale bureaus, and profound and comprehensive j reports are made by committees of both Houses. Hut the great mass of the community know nolh- j ing of die cements of these documents and re j ports, except the lirtef notices of them, whm1 from time to time appear in the public pap rs. j The standing number printed of each do? n cmt, and report, is only twelve hundred in the S i ate, and fourteen hundred in the . louse of Repre tn.,. lives, which at once shows the impracticability o their dissemination. The Advertiser will contain short abridgments or analysts of all them documents and reports, and the compend wili therefore not only prove exceedingly useful and | instructive in itself, but will furnish an easy index to those interested, whenever it is found desimbb to obtain and examine me oocumem at turge. There is a large field before us, the material)* an uinpie. It will be our zealous cure to collect am arrange them in the proper form. We have ever\ confidence that the subscriptions will be ample t> enable us to accomplish it all. The informalioi we propose to give, comprehending and corifinei to tlie action of the Government, is solid, nsefu , and (we might almost say) necessary to the offi cer?if not lo the citizen. It is intended for all, and put at a price which can constitute no obstach with any. If Ht the end of the year, any subscribe' shall find that he has not received the full value o his money, in intellectual enjoyment and in tin increased light and aid alloided him, for the dis charge of his official duties or in exercising by hi' vote his just share in tye conduct of our public at fairs, then shall we be ready to admit, that oui hopes and expectations have been disappointed, and tlml the contract on our part has failed.

A CO., UO?Ti THIS work is conducted in the spi, tell 'a Museum of Foreign Literature, ^ whs favorably received by the public for twe.. years,) but as it is twice ns large, und appears so often, we not only give apirit and freshness to it by many things which were excluded by a month's delay, but while thus extending our scope, and mtherin&r a greater and more attractive varietv. nre al>!e so to increase the solid ami substantia! part of our literary, historical, and political liar- ' vest, as fully to satisfy the wants of the American reader. The elaborate and stately Essays of the Edin- i burgh, Quarterly, and other Reviews; and Blackwood's notable criticisms on Poetry, his keen political Commentaries, highly wrought Tales,' and vivid descriptions of rural and mountain scenery; and the contributions to Literature, History, and common life, by the sugacioiiH Spectator, the sparkling Examiner, the judicious Athenaeum, the busy and industrious Literary Gazette, the sensible and comprehensive Britannia, the sober nnd respectable Christian Observer; tbese ure intermixed with thr Military nrrd Nnvsl reminiscences of the United Serv ice, and with the best articles of the Dublin University, New Monthly, Eraser's, Tait's, Ainsworth's, Hood's, undSporting Magazines, and of Chambers's admirable Journal. We do not consider it beneath our dignity to borrow wit and wisdom from Punch; and, when we think it good enough, ma e use of the thunder of The Times. We shall increase our variety by importations from the continent of Europe, and from the new growth of the British colonies. The steamship has brought Europe, Asia, and Africa into our neighborhood, and will greatly j multiply our connexions as merchants, travellers, ind politicians, with all parts of the world; so that, | much more than ever, it now becomes every intel- I ligent American to be informed of the conditions ) mil changes of foreign countries. And this not only because of their nearer connexion with ourselves, but because the nations seem to be hastening through a rapid process of change, to some | new state of things, which the merely political prophet cannot compute or foiesee. Gi ographical Discoveries, the progress of Colonization, (which is extending over the whole world,) and Voyages and Travels, will he favorite j matter for our selections; and, in general, we shall systematically und very fully acquaint our readers with the great department of foreign affairs, without entirely neglecting our own. While we aspire to make the /.iring .#ge desirable to all who wish to keep themselves informed of the rapid progress of the movement?to states men, ilivines, lawyers, and physicians?to men of business und men of leisure,?it is still a stronger object to make it attractive tn tWeir wives and children. We believe that we can thus do some good in our day and generation, and hope to make ihe work indispensable in every well-informed family. We say inilisptnaable, because in this day of cheap literature, it is not possible to guard aguinst the inllux of what is bad in tusle and vicious in morals, in any other way than by furnishing a sufficient supply of a healthy churacter. The mental and moral appetite must be gratified. We hope, that by " winnowing the wheat from the chaff'," by providing abundantly for the imagination, and by a large collection of Biography, | Voyages and Travels, History, and more solid matter, we may produce a work which shall he popular, while at the same time it will aspire to raise the standard of public taste. jLjr* Letters in commendation of the 'dan and | execution of the work from Judge Story, Chancellor Kent, Dr. Bethune, and Messrs.

MEMORIAL. | To the Senate and House of Representatives of Ihr j United Stales in Ccngress assembled: The memorial 1 of the undersigned, respectfully represents that j they are entitled to Bounty Land, under the net j of 28th of September, 1H30, that they arc informed nml believe that the unlocated warrants are worth more to tliein than the patented lands would be; that they do not expect or desire to reside 0:1 the land thus granted; that if patented to them, the expense of agencies and taxes will be an annual I charge, reducing the value of the grant, which they could avoid if permitted to sell the warrant. Your memorialists further represent that the law, by preventing the sale of the warrants, assumes that the officers and volunteers entitled to bounty lands, are not competent to act for themselves, whereas many of them are among the most intel' ligent and respectable citizens of the States. They therefore respectfully ask that the act aforesaid " may be so modified as-to make the warrants for " bounty lands assignable, and they will ever J pray, &c. i WANTED TO PURCH ASE *j A SMALL HOUSE on Capitol Dill, con I Mffl taining six or seven rooms, with consider.
