The Postmaster General's Report will recom mend a M< ney Order system, but with some a wk ward and objectionable features. lie has found his pet system of registration a complete abortion, and having been a close reader of Tiie Tuiiiune during the last twelve months, he feels obliged to adopt some of its aoggeationa for postal improve? ments. He will thus relieve his ad minis trationVtf that important Department from a portion of tho bad reputation bis management haa given it. No one denies Mr. Campbell's industry and persever? ance, but as foT original and valuable suggestions and improve meuts be has not inaugurated the first one. Though this comes with an ill grace and at the ele ventb hour, let him have the credit of for once making a roe*oinuiendation of some value, though under the heaviest pressure from the country and the Press, and alter his own peculiar schemes ha<e pioved complete failures. Tbe old stor* will be repeated of the Post-Office not sustaining itself, but there will not be sufficient coursne to recom? mend the wiping out of the franking privilege KANSAS. A STARTLING MOTION?BIOTOUS MEETING From (Hr Special Corre*poodeaL Leavinwortii CnY, K. T., Not 21,1855. I expected to be able to leave this place before this time, but the case of McCrea progresses so slowly that I may be here some days yet. This morning a somewhat startling motion was made in Court. I bave alluded to a similar proposition made a few days ago, to the effect that the Clerk and two of the Attorneys, who had been actively engaged in the lynching of Phillips last Mayf should be expelled the Court. Then the Court appeared to I e offended by the motion, and finally ruled it out, as there were no affidavita filed at the same tine to prove the allegatiois. The motion was offered by an elderly and dignified lawyer, who, I believe, has practiced in the United States Supreme Court?'lhomas Shankland, esq. This morning Mr. Sbankland rose and asked the Court if he should understand that the motion would be sustained if he produced the affidavits? The Court replied in the affirmative, whereupon Mr. Shantlaad took frtim his pocket ionic papers aud read the follow? ing motion ai.d affidavits: Corv or affidavits of FronWm (!.

All the witnesses are of responsible character. RiTer be? ing an esteemed merchant. I will give my own testimony here. After Shsitiklano left, tbe Court having nothing particu? lar before it, a group of the "law atd order'' lawyers clustered round the stove, where I was riling. The Clerk of the Court also came for? ward, and in a low tone said to those around him, the Cou't betol still in session : " The O -d d?d e?n of a b?h I There's one man I've got to give a d?d thrashing to before be leaves thia " This was the only important proceeding before the Court today, there being nu progress in wie ia the Me Cr? a case. In the evening a imcting was held. Dr, I'avis, i a defeated Nebraska DexOOflTAt, who ran for Con? gress in Indiana, was a little Pro-Slavery iah after he came here, but is mw a Free State man, was to address the meeting. Hfl made a very pretty start toward a fair speech, when he was 'nrer rupted About a dozen ot the active "la w and order" men came w ith tbe evident intention of making a row, and most of tbem were fully inspired in a *pr*itu&] way. Such a Habel of noiso did they ?uake that the Dr. had to retire. 1'ho Sherid' of this county, Jarret Todd, elected by the Missouri legis? lators, got up on the box wbore Davis had i>oen trying to bold forth. Hfl was clothed in a sort of vellow jean, had the appearance of a very illiterate backwoods countryman, and was about half tipay. Tbia latter l et waa very plainly indicated by the peculiar modulation of his voice, and as he vocifer? ated " I'm a law and o or sVt ua-an," tbe house honored bis appeal with the utoct uproarious laughter. He said it was the li: st time he had "ever lx?n upon a box that way," and got off it, after having declared that tin Dr. " sh mid " s peak, r hould spsak," so the mich-abiiseJ Dr. began again. Th's time he was interrnpted by a string of onaoSBOtM put by Judge Pahna, the County Judge tVcted b\ the barons. His favorite interrogatory was, " Aie you in favor of the laws of the Legis? lature "' and this he asked agaiu and again, while others engsged in conversation and discussion. 1'rom tbe fact that all the disturbance origoafed with the I'ro-Slavery men, and was kept up sys? tematically there is no doubt they came there to break tip the meeting in a row. Several spoke or rather attempted to speak, and final)? the immor? tal Todd got '' on the box " again, and took a vote on the question of Freedom or Slavery in Kauaaa The vote on Freedom was lirst taken, and such a shout of " Aye" went up that the poor sheriff was almost overwhelmed; the vote on Slavery was then taken, and although there evidently were not nearly so many voices there was a goodly number, and they yelled and shrieked loudly and loog. In the midatof the hubbub the candles were extin i i uished. and thereupon the meeting broke up. That there were not violence and bloodshed is i almost miraculoua, and so it well-nigh happened ahortly afterward. Hughes, one of tbe "law and order men, and ringleader of the mob that lynched Phillips, sought Parrot in order to have a personal rencounter with him, which only the interference of friends prevented. MOBi: VIOLENCE-THF INDICTMEHT< Leavi NVMiRTii Citv, K. I., Nov. 1866. Thia mornii.g the political fevtr here again mani. fested itself in a little excitement Hughe*, the " law and order *' maul have already alluded to. snapped a pistol at Mr. Shoemaker, Receiver of Public Moneys at the Land Oflice, the only United States official in the Territory, I am informed, who is a Free State man. Luckily, Mr Shoemaker happened to be unarmed at the time, or, as he has the reputation of being a b.Md, determined man. it is likely that Hughes would have been shot on tbe spot. As it was, the bystanders at once inter? fered and led off the parties. The motion of Mr. Shankland has not yet been acted uprn, and I am beginning to be apprehen? sive for ire fate. To-day has been apent in Court in discussing the indictment, on a motion to quash it. I he pleas are: that the Jury was not comprised of persona of th>a county ; that the trmre iseued was for a prfif Jury, and that some grabdjir-.rs had been selected from thia; that an aujourued Grand Jury waa irregular and dangerous; thai the Jury in question waa realL adjourntd to Sep'ember, 1866 tbat there was a sufficient number of iurors pres? ent when the Court was tirst called at this al joiirned term, and that adJitional members were added to it afterward. These were the chief ob jtctioos, and they were sustained and met by ar? gument. Tbe Court adjourned this evening, hold? ing the matter in advisement I stated in a letter recently that one of the Grand Jurors had been dismissed and d scharged. This it appears is a mistake. I got tho informa? tion from a Grand Juror and from witnesses who had given positive testimony agaiust him before the Grand Jury. It was believed that the action in qoestioa would of course be taken; but I no? ticed this mtrning that the offender's name was called with the others. Testimony of the most de? cided character has been given bet?re the Grand Jury sgainst the Clerk of tke Court, several attor? neys aiid some members of both juries, but after having watched the current of events very closely for a tew days, I d?ubt very much whether a bill will be found acainst any of them We bare just had a rumor be that Mr Park was mobbed ia Parkville tw > days ago, but I do aot beliefe it.

Last evening a new so called comedy of five acts was produced at thia peasant Theater, enti'Jei "Fal.-e l'retenccs." The title was most happily sc ; tfi. st d it is the only portion of the play to which we can award the merit of either truth or originality. Tie conception was crude and cfumsy, the plot dim and dusky, and the diction and dialogic uarelieved by a eoutary scintillation of either pertness. poetry, wit or fancy. Anythiog more execrable we have seldom seen oa the stage, aod nothing we believe could kave indaced the managers to ac.ept sach a thing, but the laudable de*ire to give ensoarage neLt to a native production by a native aathir, and with the soene laid ia the City of New-York. The p'ay u said to be the proiuct.ou of a gentle? man belonging to t .at so-called good society which this piece purposes to picture. Of tbia we know and caie naught , but ridiculous and mirth-waking ad are the i retensiors of the people who fancy tbey are good society here, they canrot possibly have descended to ?ie low (onditioa of kitchen vulgarity to whish thia play would reduce them. Truth should be at least the foundatuon of every comedy which oasht ta be tbe mirror and reflector of the manners and fashion of tie time. But the air and bearing in public assem? blies ofthoe particular parvenua who claim to be select rcc'.sty here, is quite tafficteat to convince any one who has mixed in real'y refined sxkyty of the utter wer hi-?nets of ench claims, and that the oaly good and best society in this country is to be found ia the Li erarj and industrial classes. Still such coarse caricatnrts as those presented at Mr. Barton's Theater last nigh'?without even a touch of bnlliancy to re ceem them?are naaght bat miserable attempt* to pander to the natural appetite of these who are* ** called uferitr ,?.e y to revile those who ara ca; e-i superi r. Eten those accetscries which are ot more avail tbsn is letMtaily supposed and giro Mr. Barton's TbeaUr so large aa advantage, were nogtectod.

At \h'i p--n1>'ielin ert Isstevenipg wa? perfb sued for tl j fjr>t lime a new p ny written eip e-sly for Mrs. Jnli-i l>? sn Hayne, ertit'ed "IV Ba krupt " Aa ?he -t?ne is laid in this city and at the present tinae, it may no; be ii?ktoreat.og to give a sketch of the m , j Mad picture of modern bio whioh the authot haa intl-avored to preeeut. The drama is in four acts. Tae characters art)few, bot tbey make up in intensity what they lack in aetn? h. nj, A merchant who is reduced to bankruptcy by a romblnaton of advene cir ams'ances, adroiiy n?: . .i'd by a ft', n I who Is the most consumaata stoundrel j < ^il!e, and wb ? is eventually disooverei and ?aptnr.e<t by Uie moet persevering policeman oa neoff)| a wife who Is falsely atvuried both of inidelita; and petit laiceny; n mother who doos not do anything in paricular. and a nurse wh ? goes into a fariojsty ui reasonable psssion every lime she It spoken to, are tbe materials cf whM this plsy ia constmcted. Amy Startle, th< heroine, had been in her girlhood wTraftally aocatai ?f puroining a pieoe of lace, wbich ut fortunate n:K.\ although immediately huabed up, came by some means to the knowledge ot Jarnes Bht Man (Mr. C Fieber), a rejected suitor, who, after Amy had mart Id Mr. I'.dward Oilttrood (Mr. A W. I'tono), came to visit her and revenge his slightest love by rovea'ing this secret to her husband, and then ban i?atirg the woman who on e had humbled him, Ai<led by circumstances he succeeds, while under a fahe name, and under the guise of friendship, as recm iiig the unhappy nterchan: almost to bankruptcy, and also asaure? htm of tli? intiil.lity of his wife; aod to convince biui that this story is true, he haa the hiss hand overbear an ioterview between them, which he) nans >?? with such a diabolic Ingenuity thai she words of tbe wi^e seem to confirm the statement. QUtWOOd immedia tdy casts off his wife, who returns to !' r uio'her's house, where she Is followed by Sbel vlde, who strive to itidoco her in teality to run away with him. Ilisvi lauy is tiusily detected and he is arrested by tlie ejertons of Mr. Pike, a p .) o oilioer (Sir. Chapmen) who ba* followed hioa io various dis? guises for three years. Though why be delayed his oppn he nsion so lorg, it having been perfectly evident all the while that he bad commit'ed crimes enough to bang ha f a dozen ordinary men, is a mystery known only to those verred in the secrets of the police. Baf fice it to say, that eventually ev?rything is righted. Ciliwoou's fortune is pr*eorved |sj him, he is satisfied of his wife's truth:ultess, and Shelville is mat died off to pri-on, having firs' made an ami?ble but ioeffectaal at'empt to shoot his former sweetheart, Amy. The esding character of the play is Amy, which is perscnated by Mrs. Julia IK an Hayne. Thecharae ter is one net calculated to display t > the fullest eit at j her powers, but somo of the scenes were rendered so effectively as to bring down applause in good earnest. In some of the passages in tbe fiist act, where tke dialogue is supposed to be bstween a lady aod her hueband, her delivery of the language was too declamatory for Ian ordinary parlor conversation; but this stirTiees soon wore away, and as the mtersat of the piece developed Ler acting became more natu? ral t.nd tru'bful. Mr. Fiiher eustakoa the character of the gett * manly sccuntbei in a very able and art? istic manner; bis makeup was particularly excellent, Mr. Whiting played an impassible old lawyer who made his will and gave away all his property without cause or prevocat on. La as res pec able a maaasr aa so stupid a part deserved. Mr. Chapmas, as a vary deep and mysterioos police officer, was so exceed? ingly rraxsparen'.. that a rogue with sense enoagk te s ep rosnd the corner when he bad picked a pocket, would have seen through himst once. His rsooUeo tion of the text was spasmodic and uncertain and aba w ho e effect of bis acting 'very undecided and jerky. Mrs. illake as the nurse, was perhaps a little extrava? gant, but was very successful. Mr. Fenao made a very respectable bankrupt, aod weot cotisoi ntiously through his part It may not ba out of place to suggest to the gentle? men who p'ayed the attendant officers, that policemen of even ordinary civilization would take off their hats in a gentleman'* parlor. The play was well received by the aadience, and will probably be, w ith a little mots study, to insure the ease, and dissi? pate the nervousness of tie performers a good aad snccestfol actirg drama. In answer to a call for the author, Mr. Fenno announced that that geet emaa desired to withhold for the present his name from ike public. Ldward Fi zgerald, a carman in tbe employ of a Mr. Marshall, of Fulton market, and Henry Knien, a laborer at 9^ o'clock !n T evening entered McClatkye porter house, coiner of Washington and beaoh streets, ai.d had several drinks togs her.
