GT The Neic- Yorker Abend Zeitung is the title
of a new German evening paper, commenced in
this City by an association of German printers,
the specimen number of which ws received yes
tcrday. The regular publication begins on Mon?
day. It is a good-looking sheet, about half the
sise of The Tribune, and is to be famished to sub?
scriber* at 10 cents a week. It is written in ex?
cellent style, free from personalities, with noble
aspintions and tendencies, and promises to be a
valuable addition to oar Germsn journalism. The
Editor's name is not given, but we understand that
it it to be conducted by Mr. Kapp, a young gen?
tlemen who has been but three or four montha in
the country, and who does not seem to see clearly
enough to distinguish the counterfeit which here
claims to be ' Demooraoy' from tbe genuine thing.
Tbe Abend Zeitung is a great advocate of State
Sights, and oppose* tbe Wilmot Proviso. No
doubt this ii all easy; but we respectfully suggest
that American politics ia a rather complicated busi?
ness, with respect to which the opinion of a green
hand, even if termed under the light of pore rea?
son, is often istertiting, but not aJwaya valuable.

T;?r Ji.vny Li5D Ticket-Auction ? Second
Bay.- Tbe aale cf Ticketa ff r the first Concert r/
SnDy Lind w?i resumed Et Castle Garden at 10
o'c'ock yesterday morning, and was very largely at?
tended. Tbe first privilege offered wan from 1 to
20 j an increaaeof ten overthe privilege of Saturdny.
The sales began with 85 and 85 25, and ran ap to
$G 25; continuing ttationary for some ti ne at 4 8,
und went off freely at S5. For the accommodation
of thcie who were iin.ited as to prices, tho privi?
lege was subsequently extended to 50 seats.
Mr. Barnnm announced that an offer of $5 had
bees made for every seat remaining in the boase,but
be had not accepted it; ncr would be do so, though
91,000 were offered. The probability oi the real
due of the sea*4 S01DS other directions produced
the effect of keeping'?0 ?bo price yeiterday morning
at $5.
The number of tickets sold up to yasto^ay
was over Three Thousand. Messrs. Hall & Son
were the largest purchasers, taking 1,300 aeatf.
at $5 to $i 50?mostly at the former rata.
Messrs. Juli e & Son took 110 seats, at $5 to
?John Smith" purchased a very large number o
seats.
Phalon waa also a he*vv parchasar.
The Irving House purchased 90 additional seat?,
at $5.
The Clinton Hotel took 20 seats, at 95.
The number of single purchases was very large
ranging fiom one to four seat', bid off by individu
als at an average of about $5.
We have trepared tbe following synopsis of the
price of ticket?, average value, and reoeipts, as far
as we hare the data. It will be seen that nearly
4,500 are here put down at an average price of

?The gate of Castle Garden yesterday morning
was crowded by an eager throng of Saturday's
purchasers in pursuit of their tickets. The narrow
entrances were taken possession of at an early
hour, and were not again freed till after noon ; the
mass of people standing wedged in, somewhat af
ter the California fashion upon tbe arrival of a
steamer. Many who could not succeed in forcing
their way to the Ticket office, being endowed with
more patience than their neighbors, formed a line,
two deep, which at 10 o'clock extended half-way
acrosa tho Bridge. Gradually tho concurse thinned
out, and m grated inside the Garden, swelling the
Dumbers in attendance upon tbe auction. Tho aac
tioneer was mounted upon a rostrum in the center
of the Balcony.
Tbe old Btage and orchestra in tho Garden have
already been demolished, to make way for the im
provements contemplated by Mr. Barnnm, and the
rasp of saws, the strokes of hammers and the voices
of the workmen, make tbe Garden vocal to an nn
comfortable degree. The work is pushed forward
with great energy, and will ba linished in aband
ant season for the completion of the decorations
and other alterations which are to metamorphose
the hoose. A new place of egress is being con?
structed from the rear of the balcony, which will
render seats in that section very eligible.
The Rehearsal ok Jerry Lind's First Con?
cert.?The first full rehearsal of the Grand Con
cert for tc-morrow night took place yesterday at
Castle Garden. Judging from tha effect produoed
upon the few who heard it, wo should guess that
the holders of tickets will not consider them too
dearly purchased. As a partial relief to the gen?
eral cariosity concerning this rehearsal, we give
tbe impressions of a friend whose musical expe'
rietce entitles his opinion to respest:
We have jnst returned from Jenht Liud's first
grand rehearsal. We went there, by no means
strongly prejudiced in her favor. We have return
ed ai.other man.
Unfortunately, (for ourselves,) we arrived too late
to hear the " Catta Diva," or at least the whole of
It, but the com lading passages surprised us no
little. Still we had our doubts about her, when
she began to sing with Signor Belletti tho Dao
from " 1 Turchi in Italia" Before it was over, we
had almost entered another world; we hardly be'
lieved that buman voice conld accomplish what
tbe Swedish vocalist made palpable to our ear*
Such perfect execution, each invariably trae, even
and correct intonation, such natural expression in
all tbe m ddle scd lower register of her voice (a
part which we expected to find deficient) we
never beard before.
- Wi have heard many, ray, nearly all the grea
vocalists of our age; we were there, and ready to
draw comparisons; we were cool and unpreju?
diced, but she completely disarmed us of criticism.
We have spoken of the middle and lower part
of her voice ; the upper we expected, of course, to
find remarkably brilliant, dashing, and effective.?
Strange as it may seem, we found it neither bril
liant nor dashing, fn tbe common acceptance of the
terms, but effective, beyond all conception. And
herein, (if we may be allowed to judge from a
mere rehearsal) consists its great attraction. She
does all this without seeming effort TceNight
iigale, to which she has been justly compared,
does not pour out its melody with more ease, its
notes do sot gush forth with more freedom and
correctness according to Nature's pitch and scale,
than do Jebst Likd's, according to Art's strictest
rules.
As an instance, which may serve to show that
we were not alone in our enthusiam, we would
mention that at the close of the first part of the
Trio Concertanie for tbe two flutes and voice, (in
which Mr Siede, one of the finest flutists of the age,
plays ncftid flute,) tbe orchestra came to a dead
stop. Thtj had been listening to the vocalist and
had forgot their parts and all else. There they
stood with open mouths, until Mr. Benedict told
?hem that they " must not listen, if they wanted to
p!sy their parts." And that orchestra contained
George Loder, who played the double bass, and
Theodore Kisfeld!, both well known conductors and
not easily carried away by enthusiasm. In tba
Trio her voice not ooly could not bo distinguished
from the Hate, but absolutely was an improvement
on it, and of tbe three Nightirgales sapposed to bo
heard then, she was unquesliocab y the best. An
incident occurred curing the Trio which deserves
notice. At a pause, the belt of a steamboat at the
landing near by, struck thrice and happened to
striae at the essct pauses in her song. At first
we ourselves thought it was an orchestral effect, so
perfectly did its clear tocos harmonize with the
voice of the songstress.^ The bell happened to be
exactly in tune and striking the same note with
her, and the eel o at first deceived all the listeners.
Eer D. in alt, clear, beautiful, and brilliant, might
have been heard at half a mile's distance. But we
will cot forestall our readers' enjoyment for Wed?
nesday night
Yet we cannot close this article without a word
about Mr. Btnedut, and Sig. Belletti. The former
is well known to a 1 of as by bis works; the latter,
we can assure our readers, is among Baritone?
what Jenny is among Soprani, at least as far as
we have heard in this country.
Concert for All Out or Doors?Last night
about 9 o'clock, Dodworth's admirable Brass 3and>
renowned for its performance as far as Yankee
territory extends, struck up in the Park, for the en?
tertainment of the public in general. Of ooarse,
li a few minutes there was a sufficient crowd
gathered to warm the rather ooolisb atmosphere o'
tie Park into a more magnetic and sympathizing
feel. The Band played splendidly, and the ap
plause was even more enthusiastic than if it had
been echoed back from four walls. The " Marseil?
laise," the " Star-Spangled Banner,' " Love Not,"
tbe "Pirate's Chorus," and many favorite polkas
and waltzes pealed out by turn through the dimly
lighted avennes of trees, to the great delight of the
thousands who listened. We wish some benevo?
lent individual would endow Dodworth's Band
with a handsome legacy, on condition that it should
give a similar public serenade in the Pa'k, every
night during the summer season.
Jekut Lind.?Mdlle. Lind still remain* at the
Iriing House, and is even more than vrtt pestered
by the public curiosity. An immenop crowd gather,
ed around the Hotel last night, on the appearance
of a lady at one of the upper windows. After the
rehearsal yesterday at l-astlo Garden, the bridge
was so crowded with people, waiting to see her
appear, tba\ for some time her egress seemed impos?
sible, except by the sea-way and a special steam?
boat. Presents continue to come in from all quar?
ters. Among others she received yesterday from
Mr. Daniel T. Curtis, of Boston, some of the mos*
splendid nectarines ever grown iu this country.?
They were a marvel to all whoboheld them.
Inhumanity or Caste.?A lady who writss in
commendation of our 6triclures on the brutality of
driving colored women away from cars or stages in
1 which they seek convoyano, makes the following
forcible suggestion :?
" It is frequently necessary for those who em?
ploy colored servants, to send them a long distance
for a physician, nurse or help ; and not only do these
servants have tbe fatigue of a long, unseasonable
walk, which might wel! oe spared them, but the
delay thus ncc&aioued is always inconvenient, some?
times fatal."
? Think of this, ye mean aristocrats of skin-deep
superiority ! _

Bust or Jzkjjt Li.id.?We saw yesterday, in
Putnam's bookstore, a superb bast of J->noy Lind,
in marble, by the English sculptor Durham. It
haa.the rare merit of being an excellent portrait
while the outline of the features is softened to a
harmony with their exalted spiritual expression
The head is slightly bent forward, whioh gives it a
peculia-ly geBtle and winning look; and the gen?
eral effect is in the highest degree tender, pure and
womanly. A single rose is mocked in marble
among bee, full, wavy hair, and a large boll-flower
droops on her bosom The mechanical execution
of the bust is remarkably Sne. It was imported
by Putnam, and is well worth a visit.

The Philosophy of Government.
Washington, Friday, September 6, 18?4.
To tts Kditor oj The Tribune:
The Dollar Newspaper of last week fell under
my eye to-day and I find its loader with the cap?
tion of " Tho Philosophy of Government," to bo a
critique upon a letter of mine to The Tribune, in
which I mentioned a remark of Mr. Winthrop, to
the effect that no law can be enforced in the United
States which runs counter to a well denned public
sentiment, upon which remark I added some com?
ments. To those comments the editor takes ex?
ception and flies to tbo defense of Mr. Winthrop.
He says the " utmost extent" of Mr. Winthrop's
meaning, was that, " as the United States are a
confederacy, upon the principle of agreement and
compromise, laws, to be generally enforced, must
be satisfactory to the whole, and not exclusively
acceptable to one State or a minority of States."
'? He did not intend to say," says tho writer, "that
a law not acceptable to a minority cannot be en?
forced, for this would substitute anarchy and justify
the Hartford and Nashville Conventions, the Whis?
ky Insurrection of Pennsylvania, or the Nullifica?
tion of South Carolina. Mr. Winthrop understands
too well the philosophy of our political system to
go beyond this, and is too discrete aad naturally
conservative to preach revolution or anarchy." To
this I have to reply that 1 did not underatand Mr.
Winthrop to refer to mutual agreements or com
promises at all, bat simply as stating a fact that
law, as mere law?an arbitrary expression ef the
will of the legislator, cannot be successfully enforc?
ed In these United States any further than such
law happens to be a genuine expression of the will
of the people. Do not Mr. Winthrop, and " the
commentator-correspoudent of The Tribune" and
the editor-commentator upon him, all agree in this ?
Is it not a truth, littlo more than a matter of coro
ir on observation? Further than that is it not right
that it should be true7 Is it not of the very os
sence'of Representative Government,that it should
be so 7 Did I then misrepresent Mr. Winthrop 7
Clearly not.
But the gist of my offense lay in my comments
and not in my report. The editor goes on to say:
" But this is not enough for tbe Commeniator-correipoc
dent He says that Mr. Wlntnrop has stated in substance
that what ever; man and woman begins to hiuk, and whit
ail will ultimately think Is that each may act according to
his or her prtvatt judgment, regarding ibe law with no rev?
erence, and merely as an obstacle to be obeyed or not, at
corclngto the dlciates of prudence.1 Hessysthat, while
others msy regard this as an awful symptom ofde^enency
be halls It as a glorious exhibition or the true law of pro
gress, the ' Ores king out of that law of Individuality wttbln
us. which shall finally make every msn a riuo, and every
woman a woman, Instead of being the Tom Fools wo now
are, imitating and banging upon the skirts of each other'
This is progress with a vengeance1 and If Mr. Winthrop
said or tnllroaied this, which we shall not believe up je tbe
testimony of bis trantuitor. tbe proper place for bim Is a
lunatic asylum and not the Federal Senate."
Now, Sir, let us dismiss Mr. Winthrop and bis
sentiments. What my critic means to say is, that
1, for tbe opinions I express, cughttoboin a lunatic
asylum. That's it. plump out. Very woll, accord?
ing to my principle of "individuality," he has a
perfect right to entertain that opinion or anyothe*
which he may happen to have. The fact is, tbat
this great law of "individuality," as heM by my?
self and a few friends, who do not think ourselves
fit subjects for the ma-'.-hoose, and which Is held
too as tho grand solvent of tho most intricate dif
Acuities of the social state is the most unheky
thing to combat in the universe. Tbo very fact of
assaulting it proves it. Has net the alstinguUhod
Kditor, by regarding me as a lunatio, for ideis
which I regard as among the moat sensible ideas I
ever utiered, proved, if he proves nothing ehe, that
each of us is t)M individual, having mental charac
teriitics and peculiarities as diverse as the features
which distinguish us from each other. Now tin
point with me is that I recognise that fact. I per?
ceive tbat it is true of hico and me, not only, bat of
every human being, and I conclude: I. That every
law, every human institution, every creed, eviry
rule of action, which assumes that we ara alike,
in these respects, and not different, is based upon
a false assumption, and is therefore false, aad
2. That every man-made law, institution, creed, or
rule of action, which attempts to compel tho con
forniity of one man to another \a thought, word, or
action is both false and oppressive inasmuch as it
attempts to shape by the man mada institution, the
God-made subject of that institution, la that clear
to the comprehension of the Editor of The Dollar
Netcspaj/er, and if so, does ho see, as Jack Down?
ing sayo, the "bearia cn't." The Edkor says that
be don't believe my reproecntatioa of Mr. Win?
throp's remark. Very weil i perhaps he was oaca
a green country schoolboy, and baliaved every?
thing ho saw in print. If so ha baa got more indi?
viduality now. Has it then proved ;o him a law
of progress, or otherwise.
If I was on better terms of intimacy with the E i
itor, I would ask bfm to do mo a couple of favors.
In the firat place, let him avoid the fault of all those
who are defenders of rvhat it, against tho asiaults
of innovation,?that is the quite unintentional and
extremely provoking assumption that be of course
is right, and tbat his opponent has, by mistake,
committed an ollense against what is well estab?
lished to be all true and proper. Will ho, hereafter,
if he has any occasion to say anything to me, simply
take it for granted, that I know quite as well as he
knows, tbat I am assailing the 7ery foundations of
existing things and institutions. Let him perceive
the fact that his true position is not t-.at of'attack,
but of defense, and tbat if he convicts me of being
the most unmitigated disturber of the existing ar?
rangements of society and the aaaertar o:' onboard
of doctrines, he will morely convict me of what I
am ready to begin by admitting. Wo shall then
get on a good deal better. The only question wo
shall have then to settle, will be whether these doc?
trines are true, and if so, whether what he wants
to defend osn be justified by them.
The other request I should have to mare is, tbat
he should distinguish a little more acurately my
aaBsrtk n cf principles from ray statement of/acts.
I stated as a fact that reverance for law, as sacb,
is xotoriougly becoming slanhaaed in the mind* ot i
tbe community ;iB ether words tbat reliamra oa**'
thority & gaide is going dov ,, r*K????
indmdeahty or individual go4rnm?Vr^?
log up. We probably agree as lo ?he ftrat?
Bo doubtless regrets it, at least in man* ofiu
miiT if: statines. My principles lead me totaket
mere hopeful view of the subject and to extract
good out of the evil. He says 'tins is toe law of
progress with a vengeanceI" He says too,
tbe minority must submit to everything crnstitit
tional or legal imposed by the r^j iMty ; otherwise
Democracy is impracticable. Well, what then'
I did not assume that Denioc: aoy, or any other
form of Government that haa ever been tried,is
pra ticable, and he bas no rig-ut to assume it when
he puts at bis column head, "The Pn?osopriy?:'
Government." That beading mea's a radical
conideration of the true principles of Government,
cr else it is a misnomer, and then he rwgina by as
tuning that tbe Government of maj mics is tbe
true thing.
Well, let us try the question. There are three
things with respect to which the world has at?
tempted to govern men. namely: thought*, words
and actions. What is the most advanced doctrine
now held in the world in relation to the G ivern
ment of tbe Thought* of Man T Individuality.
The right of private judgment, even, and espe?
cially with reference to ?bat are supposed to bo
the most important matters, tbe ooacerns ?f a fix?
ture life. What in relation to Words? Individ?
uality again. Is not the absolute freedom in these
United States tbe highest type of human progress
in this department of human affairs The matter
is left to the i?ditidual what he shall say, write or
publish. How is it, finally, with regard to Actions?
Not Individuality, but the dicta of majorities servo
as yet for the governing principle in the depart?
ment of hnman afi'sirs, even in those communities
which are the most advanced. I mention as a
fact that here, too. Individuality is bee uuiog more
and more the law. I said that others feared,t,
and that I did not. Rulers, pt?osook*rt and nun
menders t f all sorts feared the consequences of
freedom of thought and freedom of soee .a just as
much and) ust as honestly as the ECdiwr to whom
1 am replying fears freedom of actio a Hat not
Freedom, which is only another name f?r Individ?
uality, proved the law of Progress so far as it has
bees tried 7 The only remedy for (be exoessesof
freedom is more freedom. Tbe remedy Is homeo?
pathic. It is more freedom coup ed wiso. the un?
derstanding of the true priuuiple of limitation upon
each Individual's action." This was my nvxliflca
tion ander which I approved of tie avowing inrlj
viduality which mani'ests itself around as on all
hands, and protty liberally, I believe, in Philadel?
phia. I admitted that " woful abuses" wouii
occur in the " transition stage " to something bet?
ter than mere reverence for the law, because the
principle of individuality would prevail before the
" true- principle of limitation " of that individual?
ity, which I referred to, but did not state, to be un?
derstood and applied. I will now state the princi?
ple, with the limitation.
Th? Absolute Sovereigstt or thk Iidivid.
ual, cxercitedat his otcn cott.
I propose this principle with its limitation, ns a
complete substitute for the Government of majori?
ties and for all other species of Government from
without the individual, just so far as individuals
will accept and act upon it. The principle may be
otherwise stated thus: The absolute, sovereignty of
the individual within kit men dominum* ; and the
fault of the individual is that he will not confine
kimtelf within his own dominions. Wnat than ist
the remedy? The ilrst step in it is clear. It is a
right understanding of the principle itself and its
limitation, and of the fact that it is right and safe
and proper?that it is universal in its application,
and that it is, just so far as acted on, an absolute
substitute for all laws such as are u?w oalled laws.
Now strange as this may all seem to my orltio.it
is nothing moro nor less than the vital, fundamental
principle of Luther's reformation, and the vital,
fundamental principle of the American Declaration
of Independence carried out to their ultimate*.?
Tbe one was the right of private judgment, speci?
fically applied to matters of conscience, but equally
true of all matters. The other was that all govern?
ment emanates from the people. L^t not the Edi?
tor now, on this account, turn round and say that in
all I have been saying there is nothing new alter
all. That is not the fact either. Tbe idea of oarry
ing out these principles to their ulti mates, with
respect to conduct as well as th mghts and words,
and that it is right and safe and proper to do so, is
new. The world has not yet been wise enough to
dare trust them so far. These iliiooverers struck
veins of pure metal but did not know how deep
they ran.
All government emanates from the people. All
talk of the sovereignty of States and Government*
is treason against Demoeracry. Bat who are the
people 7 The individuals. Men are sovere'gns,
not stites. Each man then is a sovereign, and as
a sovereign has an absolnte, indefeasible right to
govern his own dominions, in his own way, in every
conceivable respeot, so long as ha does not trench
upon tho dominions of neighboring sovereigns.

CHEAP POS TAGE.
Report.
The undersigned, a minority of the Commit'
tee on Post-Offices and Post-Roads, have
carefully examined the Petitions, Memori*
a/.v, and Resolutions, on the subject of re?
ducing the rates of Pontage on. JMters,
Newspapers and Periodicals, referred to
said Committee, and respectfully ask leave
to lieport.
The subject is one of vast importance to ?he iin?
terests cf our widespread Republic, and, differing
as we do, from a Majority of tno Committee, we
faelitdue to ourselves, to G ingress, and to the
whole country, that we state fairly and oaididly
oar views, and the reasons which compel us to re
commend a uniform rate of two cents prepaid on
lotteis, and the redaction | jf the p'eseut rates of
postage, on newspapers, periodicals, pamphlets,
and bound books.
Tho history of the introduction and establishment
of cheap postage in Great Britain, is probably fa?
miliar to every one. To Rowland Hill, tbat great
benefactor of his race, are Great Britain aad the
world indebted for this important discovery, and
the people of that country have gratefully reward?
ed him for his services in the cause of humanity.
Shortly after its establishment in Great Britain In
1840, tbe attention of one of our own citizens, Bar?
nabas Bates, was attracted to tho consideration of
this subject, and as early as March in the same
year, he commenced the adv^cacy-of cheap postage,
believing it to be as well adapted to the United
States as to Great Britain. The character aod ad?
vantages of the system of ilowland Hill, were ex?
plained by him in a series of articles and lectureala
lR41 and ISi'i, and aided by the powerful influence
< f the Press, he succeeded in getting up a Public
Meeting in the Merchants' Exchange in 1843, whets
he presented a series of Reso utions. and a Com
mittee was appointed to petition Congress for a
low and uniform rate o' postage.
The plan beiog novel a few only believod it pr-'i
ticable, while tne mass of the people, and especial?
ly tbe Post Office Department, denounced it tsf
ruinous and visionary. From that period to the
present the people in all parts of the United State?
nave every year sent in their petitions asking Con
gress to reduce tho rates of postage to a uniform
rate of tteo cents prepaid. Hundreds of thouaoedr)
of citizens, embracing farmers, mechanics, trade?,
men, merchants, lawyers, physicians and clergy
men, have al! noited in this request, without rege
to divisions in politics or relig'on. Never werr *?
people, embracing all classes, more united in '
single object than they arein calling upon Conjj
for a low and oniform rate of postage.
In l-1.3 an important reduction was made i j
rates of postigo, and tbe change of charging aa
weights instead of pieces, and redacing the rate*
to five and ten cents, was a most beneficial ?aa
salutary reform for the Post Office Department Md
for the People. This was not, however, de*?w
cheap pottage, and hence petitions ''"^Jjjcf
to Congress every year pray in? for tbe mW
a uniform rate of t wocent*. This is da8/f^s?tU
