The J'oMmin.trr-ffJ?-ijrrnr* ICcpoi-f. We knew Mr. Hall years ago as a work? er?a man of application, of details, and of energy; but we had not known him as a Reformer prior to the appearance of his Annual Report. We most heartily wel? come his appearance in that capacity.? Hitherto wc have had Postmasters-Gene? ral willing to acquiesce in reductions of Postage when made, tested and found to work successfully; but Mr. Hall is the firsl within our recollection to come out distinctly, urgently, forcibly, in favor of a radical reduction in the Rates of Postage. tWe thank him heartily for what he has done in his Report, and trust Congress will lose no time in enacting the Rates of Let? ter Postage recommended by him. Three cents prepaid per quarter ounce for any dis? tance without crossing the Rocky Moun? tains, and five cents if unpaid in advance, ore very fair rates: let us accept them at once, and he so much nearer the two-cent rate when it shall have been proved ade? quate. Do not let us endanger the half loaf by stickling for two 'cents now. Let the Postmaster-General's rates of Letter Post? age be adopted forthwith?before Chistmas, if possible. Why need there be ponderous deliberation and long speeches on so plain a matter? Mr. Hall is very fair so far as he goes with regard to Newspapers, but he does not go far enough. The weight is the essential point in the transportation of Printed Mat? ter; consequently, the considerations in fa? vor of a uniform rate of Letter Postage do not apply to Periodicals, &c. It is not just and equal to charge as much for carrying a small ne wspaper twenty miles as for carry? ing a large one two thousand miles. One cent per printed sheet, weighing not more than two ounces when mailed, is probably a very fair general rate ; but there should be a much lower rate for Country Newspa? pers?that is, for all periodicals conveyed less than forty miles. We think ten cents per annum as the postage of a Weekly, twenty of a Semi-Weekly, thirty for a Tri Wcckly. and sixty for a Daily?to bo paid for a full year in advance?would be fair rates for all journals conveyed not more than forty miles from their respective places of publication. We believe such rates would be most advantageous, yi?t but justly so, to the Country Press, which is now unduly crowded by the city journals. The Week? ly Tribune, for instance, now pays seventy eight cents in Michigan, Illinois, Wiscon? sin, Iowa, &c. while the journals printed in the very counties where taken pay fifty two; this is too little difference: but to re? duce ours to fifty-two and leave the local journals subject to the same rate, would ag? gravate the injustice. One cent per copy, payable quarterly in advance, for every newspaper sent more than forty miles, and ten cents per year, payable annually in ad? vance, for every Weekly transmitted less than foriy miles, with corresponding rates for papers printed oftener than once a week, would be just about right. We have no faith in the 'franking' principle, whether aj>] died in our favor or against us, and would have every thing pay its own way. It should be borne in mind that, though the conveyance of a mail may cost more now than formerly, the conveyance of mail mat? ter per tun costs less?much less; and of the reduction per tun caused by the substi? tution of steamboat and railroad transporta? tion for coach and horse carriage, the bulki? er portion of Mail matter is fairly entitled to the benefit. ?A saving of some ?30,000 to $50,000 per annum might and should be made in the expense of Advertising Dead Letters. In cities, the Department pays four cents for advertising each dead letter six times, which is often a dead loss added te the loss of the Postage. To advertise once at a cost of one cent, and charge two cents ad? ditional on each Advertised letter, would relieve the Department from a heavy charge an'l fix the expense of advertising on those who ought to pny it. ?We w ish the P. M. G. had been a trifle Icps polite about the Franking Privi? lege. It is in plain English an aristocratic, irrational, scandalous nuisance, and ought at once to be aboli.-hed. The official cor? respondence of the Post Office Department ought to pass free through the Mails, and nothing else. It is an abuse, an oppres? sion an outrage, for the Government to take money out of the pockets of tho9e who u>e the Mails and support them to pay the cost of sending ear-load- of President'* Messages, Treasury Reports. Patent Re? ports, cVe. to Tom, Dick and Harry free of Postage. If the documents are good for anything, who should.pay the cost of carry? ing them if not those who receive them ? Is it not enough to pay out of the Treasury the men who compile the facts and write the documents, and print them 1 But so much as comes out of the Treasury, is a matter between Congress and the Country; but when it comes to double-charging let? ters and papers that do pay in order to send another batch without pay. we lack patience with the stupidity which tolerates such fla? grant wrong. If Congress sees fit to take money from the Treasury to post-pay several barns-full of documents per annum, that is another matter: hut to seem gener? ous at the expense of an overtaxed class is false pretense and swindling. ' No More franking' is essential to any honest ad? justment of the rates of Postage; and we like the idea of including Newspaper Ex? changes in the general reform. We re < eive !i bushel of papers per day that we should dispense with if Free Exchanges were abolished, but a new and better sys? tem would soon replace the present. Let US have a thorough and no half-way Post? age Reform. ?We trust no one will misunderstand us as-caviling at Mr. Hall's Report. It is a capital document, and proves him in the main an energetic, capable, efficient officer. Still, we think improvements on his recom? mendations are practicable, and we have suggested some. On nearly every point not above indicated, we heartily second tin P. M. General's propositions. Iti'iii'!: Proceedings nt 8nil .Zunu ?lo rVicarangs, The recent arrivals from the Southward bring us new and startling intelligence from Central America and the port of San Juan de Nicarauga. The news from the latter place is particularly important at this mo? ment when the true construction of the re? cently-concluded Treaty with Great Britain is called in question. We are assured by one of the principals to that treaty that it provides for the immediate relinquishment of British pretensions in Central America, and for the effective termination of English occupancy of any portion of the territories of that country, or of what is called the Mosquito Shore. Whatever may be the design or effect of the treaty in respect to the pretended British Protectorate of the suppositions Mosquito Kingdom, there is no mistake as to the question of British occupancy. For the Treaty exprc-sly stipulates that Great Britain '??shall not oc? cupy, or fortify, or colonise, or assume, or exercise any dominion over Nicaragua, Cos? ta Rica, die Mosquito Coast, or any part of Central America.^ Yet in spite of this plain provision, and in open contempt of her treaty obligations, Great Britain still "occupies" the Port of San Juan! Not only does she occupy it, hut she exercises her power there in the most high-handed and offensive manner. In no other port on the Continent are our citizens subjected to the restrictions and annoyances that they are in that pluce. There seems indeed to be a settled purpose on the part of the Eng? lish authorities, (and there are no others,) to especially outrage American rights and feelings. Wc have now, for the first time, from the best authority, a full account of the af? fair with Capt. Ellery of the steamer Orus. The private room of this gentleman was entered in a rude manner, without any re? quest for permission, by a couple of persons professing to be of the "Police," under the pretext of looking for deserters from the British vessels of war then in the harbor. Their conduct was offensive in the highest degree, and seemed to be designed to pro? voke a quarrel. The captain remonstrated, and was replied to in the most insolent and vulgar manner, whereupon he knocked both of the intruders down. For this he was arrested by an armed posse, and dragged, without examination, to prison.? The English Consul, however, after some reflection, concluded he had gone too far, and ordered the Captain's release. The specific design of this proceeding seems to have been to impress the Nicaraguans with an idea of English contempt for the Araer can people?a purpose coincident with that betrayed in Chatfield's last letter to the Niearaguan Government, in which he warns them against "their pretended friends." But the most offensive proceeding of the British officials thus far, and one which merits the serious attention of our Govern? ment, is the course of the commander of the English brig of war Persian toward the little American steamer Director, sent out by the Canal Company to ply upon the San Juan. While that boat was preparing to ascend the river, its olficers were of ficialy informed by the commander of the Persian, that if they attempted to move without first asking and obtaining the per? mission of the authorities of the town, he should fire upon thr>rn .' And in conformity with his threat, he moved his vessel to within a hundred yards of the Director, so oh to bring her effectively under his guns. Without support or protection of any kin'b acting only as the agents of the company, the officers were obliged to submit. It is to be regretted that this course was adopt? ed, for the sooner matters i San Juan arc brought to an issue the better. It is clear that Great Britain does not in? tend to relinquish her hold on San Juan; and that in open and flagrant defiance of her stipulations she still both "assumesdo? minion" and " exercises" it in the most ar? bitrary manner in Central America. San Juan is as effectively ? occupied'' by her an Liverpool. These matters must soon come up before Congress, and we have a right to expect that both Houses wilFthoroughly investigate them. If the Clayton and Bni war Treaty is not regarded in its direct and obvious provisions, it is very certain it will not be in its more obscure ones. A rigid adherence to its terms should be insisted on. or it should be abrogated. course of our national existence, no Ameri? can vessel of war has been seen in a Cen? tral American port. Our citizens there ore. four-fold the number of those of any and all other nations?yet while English. French. Danish, and even Chilian national vessel- are almost constantly on the coast, our people are left unsupported. Who believes that the recent outrages in San Juan would have occurred, if the smallest vessel in our Gulf Squadron had been pre? sent there ? ? Ulli on ' in ?i io*i-<Mi?i>i. Judge William L. Sharkcy, who was about the only Whig coaxed into the first Nashville Convention, and who was made its President, presided over a great 'Union' demonstration at Jackson, Miss, on the 18th ult. Gen. Patrick Henry, Hon. Dan? iel Mayes and some twenty others, were Vice Presidents, while Senator Footc. Gen. Isaac N. Davis, ex-Att'y. Gen. John D. Freeman, and others were speakers and mancgers. The meeting was composed of members of both the old parties, though more considerably of Whigs, and all former party ties were dissolved in view of the lowering front of Disunion; 4 The South? ron' (Whig State Paper) changes its name to 1 The Union Flag,' and becomes the or? gan of the. new party, as 'The Mississip pian' is of its antagonist, to which the Governor and a majority of the Legislature adhere. ? Among the Resolves of the 'Union? ists,' we lind the following: IV. That, while we acquiesce in the enact? ments of the late session of Congress, ami feel a strong attachment and veneration for the Union established by our forefathers, still we declare that violations of our rights may occur which would amount to "intolerable oppression," and 1 would .justify a resort to measures of resistance ; ?among which are the following: _ 1. The interference by Congressional legisla? tion with the institution of Slavery in the States. 2. Interference in the trade in slaves between the States. 3. The Abolition by Congress of Slavery in the District of Columbia. 4. The refusal by Congress to admit a new State into the Union on the ground of her tolera? ting Slavery within her limits. ?". The passage of any laic by Congress pro? hibiting Slavery in any of the Territories. I'). The repeal of the Fugitive Slave law, or the rclusal by the General Government to enforce the constitutional provision for the reclamation of Fugitive Slaves. Hut that we are now and at all limes opposed to any agitation, by conventions or otherwise, of these questions, reserving the mode and measure of redress until such injury shall be inflicted. ?This, you observe, is ' Unionism' at the South, and is in full communion with our ' Committee of Peace and Safety;' but suppose a Northern meeting had resolved in '44 that we were all for Union, but would resist and secede in case Texas were piled on to the Slaveholding end of the Union, deranging the balance of power, or in case the South did not stop imprisoning and selling Northern freemen entering her ports in Northern coasting vessels, on bare sus? picion that they might, could, would or should have been slaves?how would that have clone ?

Third Ward.?The steamboat runners secured the election of the 11. j. Dillon, Moloney and Swarts ticket, by voting as many times as they pleased and preventing their opponents from votintr. We understand the election will be con? tested. M. Cohen was on the other ticket for General Committee, and Jesse Ferguson and L. Thorne for the Young Men's Committee. Fourth Ward.?The odds and ends of the 'Democratic' party united together, electing Oaklev, McCarty .V Co., as was expected.. Fifth Ward?The contest here all turned on Land lleform, as Emanuel B. Hart expressed his entire adhesion to this movement in a letter which he addressed to Messrs. Arbuthnot, Howe, and Cohen, on the 14th of October as follows: '?The freedom of the Puslie Lands to the actual settler Is a irreal' principle, rapidly training public favor, an-i bids fair sooner or later to assume the form of a statute Opposed as 1 am to speculations In the public domain, and to the cor rum process of the liislriDuuon of the sales among the Siat'-s, 1 am in favor of the principle contained in your third proposition." In consequence of this Mr. Hart received 169 votes, while John A. Kennedy, who opposed Land Reform, got only Go votes to 41 for John H. Keyser, a special hand Reform Democrat. As? sociated with Mr. Hart is John Y. Savage, Jr., and Francis R. Tillou, who severally received 121 and 101 votes. The Land Reformers made but a slight exertion. Messrs. Harrigan, T.

This will cause some confusion among the De? mocracy of the ' Rural Districts.' Note? of n New>Eng!and Trip. ton, Mass.?This village, (the center of a , Lancaster.) lies seme twelve miles north-east of Worcester, on the Railroad to Nashua, N. EL ft is virtually the creation of a single mind, that of E. B. Bigelow, the celebrated inventor and com? biner of improved machinery for Weaving. Here is by fur the most extensive manufactory of Ging" hams in the United States, a very large manufac? tory of fine Brussels and Ingrain Carpets, and a smaller manufactory of white figured Counter panes, all using Looms of Mr. Bigelow's inven" tion, and all fully at work. The Women employed therein earn about SO per week over the cost of their board. We understood that these factories operating at great advantage with these improved looms, are all doing fairly. The Gingham factory has aided to improve the quality and reduce the cose of Ginghams in this country Its principal mill covers over an acre of ground. When the Counterpane factory was established, the large white figured Counterpanes bought here were all imported, and cost ?9 each nt wholesale; these made at Clinton, every way equal to those, are now sold at Sli each at retail. Here is also an in? dividual manufactory of Carpet-Bags, which cuts up $.10,000 worth of Clinton-made carpeting per annum, sewing up the seams by Singer & Qo.'s Sewing Machine, which enables one man to do what no twenty seamstresses could accomplish. All the water-power at this plase is exhausted and several mills are operated by steam power, though Coal costs here some -57 per tun. Walt h im, Mas-.?This is the seat of the oldest manufactory of Cotton fabrics by an incorporated Company in Massachusetts if not in America. We believe the first Company failed, but its sue cessor (the only company manufacturing here1 has long enjoyed a high reputation for the substan? tial excellence of its fabrics, and is now working fully, in spite of the prevalent depression. Lawrence, Mass.?The great enterprise of purchasing the laud adjacent to the lowest fall on the Merrimac, (some ten miles below Lowell,) damming the River, and making here a large City ol Spindles, has not met that success which its spirit and magnitude deserved, owing to the gen? eral depression of Manufacturing Industry. We believe the stock of the Land and Water-Power Company is somewhat under par, as is that of tho corresponding enterprise at Hadley Palls, on the Connecticut. There seems to he an abundance of land to sell and power to let at Lawrence, though the growth of the place has of course been rapid from the commencement of the enterprise. The 'Bay State Mills,'however, commencing with a cash capital of SI,000,000, since increased to $1,000,000, has been saved from any share in the general depression by the judgment or good for? tune of its managers in deciding to embark in the manufacture of Shawls, which has been prosecut? ed by this company with uncommon address and energy. The entire force of the Company is ade> quate to the production of some five hundred Shawls per day of various styles and prices, adapted to the market, and for these it finds ready sale at remunerating prices, having driven several descriptions of Scotch Shawls out of the Ameri? can market, and aided to effect a reduction of some thirty per cent, in the price of Shawls generally. Lawrence proffers room and power lor several Buch Companies whenever capital can be induced to embark in them. Saco, Maine.?Here and at Biddeford, just across the Saco river, are some extensive manu? factories standing still on account of the high price of Cotton and the comparatively low prices of fabrics. The two towns feel the stagnation seriously. One Company, however?the 'York' ?is fully at work, mainly engaged in the produc? tion of Pantaloon stuffs of admirable patterns and good quality. We have seen poorer Stulls sold at ?retail for fifty cents per yard than are here put up for wholesaling at sixteen. This company cm ploys a very large capital, and seems to be doing well. Its agent, Gen. Boyd, has recently effected and patented an improvement in the Loom of very general applicability, by which it is calculat? ed that thirty per cent, is added to the productive capacity of each loom, while the fabric is ren? dered far more even in its texture and weight. The increased rapidity in the play of the shuttle on the improved loom is very palpable, while the web remains ever at a uniform tension, thus pro dncing cloth of uniform thickness. The loom costs some S10 more for this improvement; to adapt it to an old one would cost $25. A hundred or so of the new are now in operation, while more are being made as fast as may be. ?On the whole, we do not consider the pros? pects of Manufacturing in this Country very gloomy- A good many mills now stand idle, be? cause they could only, run at a loss while Cotton and Fabrics maintain their present relative prices ; but most of these are being fitted up with new and improved machinery, so as to be ready to resume working with increased efficiency when? ever the time shall permit it. We will make our own fabrics in this country?speedily and to the advantage of all interests if Congress will help? but somehow and at some not very remote day at any rate. We have not and trust may never have so cheap Labor as our British, French an t Cerman rivals; but we can beat them all at in? vention, and if Manufactures are only enabled to exist among us, we will continually improve our machinery and cheapen our processes. We are bound to go ahead. Port and, Me.?The Forest City is now hopeful nnd buoyant, in consequence especially of the im pnlse given to it by Railroad enterprise. Its At? lantic and St. Lawrence Railroad, now stretches North west fifty miles to Norway, Oxford Co. and is to be pushed thence the coming season by the base of the White Mountains to the head springs of the Connecticut, where it meets its Canadian complement, now being constructed thitherward from Montreal. When completed, this will be the shortest route from Montreal to the Atlantic. An? other Railroad stretches North eastwardly seven? ty miles from Portland to Waterville, on tha Kennebec, whence it is to be pressed forward soon to Baogor, and ultimately to Haifar. Still an? other rung due East to Brunswick and Bath, and is soon to be carried up the Kennebec to Gardiner* Hallowell and Augusts. These roads have already quadrupled the travel through Portlind, and their influence has hardly yet begun to be felt The City is rapidly increasing in Business an<i Popu? lation. ?A movement to revive the youthful energy of the Temperance Reformation has been commenc? ed in Portland, and is to be extended through the State, if possible; We trust the auspicious begin? ning mace on Fridav last, is an earnest of a deter? mined effort, and a benignant triumph.

Mr. Keyser read n letter from the Association of Printers in St. Louis, expressing their hearty sympathy with the movement and their regret at not having information of the intended Convention in time to send Delegates.

Regulation and adjustment of the dirioront ticaios of Prices, r.o as not to coi.ilict with each other. 2u. Giving traveling certificates to their members, in good sending, to be li t ul for one vuar, which shall recom* mend it..i holders thereof to assistance and traveling ex? penses from the Union, in any clly or town where they cannot obtain work: providing .laid holders have done nothing in the meantime to disqualify them from thu same, of which faet the Nations!

Mr. Conway of Baltimore offered the following resolutions as a substitute for the first one pro? posed by the Committee i Reiolvea, That on and after the first day of February at'Xt no printer coming from any city or town known to contain ten journeymen printers or more, will be allowed to wurk In any locality embraced w ithin this organization, unless [ he exhibits a certificate of membership from tho Society situated In the place from which he came. Ar.d Resolved, further, That the members of the Nations! Executive Committee are specially enjoined to have the above resolution fuithfully adhered to, and strictly carried into effect Rtsobeed, That the following propositions be recommend* ed to the various organizations, throughout the country, and earnestly urged upon them for llieir adoption. Mr. Conway stated, that the main object of the Convention was to extend our organization as far as possible over the country. A national organi? zation was the first thing to be effected through a National Convention. Merely to recommend, would have but little influence in inducing men to organize themselves. Ho thought it would be better to render it necessary (or men in country towns and elsewhere to belong to a Society, if we desire or expect them to get up organizations. Men, desiring to go to," points, embraced within this organization, for work, through the bind? ing force of the first resolution which ho proposed, would be compelled to interest themselves in instituting societies. Mr. Smyth,of Philadelphia, thought that the re? solution offered by Mr. Conway, was not practi? cable. New York city could not observe it. The journeymen printers in New-York could not say what they would do. They had not the power.? It would fall a perfect blank in New-York. Mr. Keyser, of Philadelphia, favored the substi? tute. He spoke at some length and very forcibly upon the subject. Mr. Brown, of Philadelphia, and Mr. Molincux, of New-York, also spoke in favor of the substi? tute, and Mr. McDonald and Mr. Glen, of .New York, atrainst it. Mr. Conway suggested that New-York might bo excepted from the'operation of the resolution. Mr. Greene, of Louisville, offered a substitute, for both the resolution proposed by the committee and the one offered by Mr. Conway. We were unable to get hold of it at the time, but will give it to-morrow. Pending the question on these several proposi? tions, the Convention adjourned until this morn? ing at 'j o'clock. sTtf''The Gi:m* a COURIKR, formerly a 'Silver Gray concern, has become straight Whig: S.
