The Allotment System* We are pleased to perceive that this system is working bo well, and that the men of our now levies are so gene rally taking advantage of it. Either they belong to a su perior class or tho system is becoming better undorstcod, for tbero is a remarkable difference in the amount al lotted by them and that at first obtained by the commis sioners from the Army of the Potomac. It is no unusual thing for a regiment to allot soven or eight thousand dol lars, and one went almost to nine thousand dollars a month. The thanks cf the country are due to tho President for the interest he has tak n in this matter; and, now thut Governor Morgan has promulgated the following order, there is every promise that the labors of the commission ers will be f illy successful. Wo think it would greatly facilitate the efforts of those gentlemen?who, it must be remembered, give their services without remuneration? it they had an assimilative rank, which won id entitle them i> re pect in the army, without command.

People who pretend to lock iuto tbo future condition of our country arc b ginning to talk of the importance of re moving thu capital to New York whou tbo war Is ended and the rebellion suprre-sed. They argue that the pre scut location of the capital lias been the occasion of va rious difficulties in (he prosecution of the war. It ba3 seriously embarrassed the movements of our army, its exposed position rendering elaborate works and large forces necessary for its defence. Ttao necessities of the oase are inagnillcd by a set of old fogies here who become exceedingly nervous wheuever the army moves its length away from Washington. Let the rebols mouanco tins city in the slight est degree and our army must be called home to de. fend it, and opportunities for striking at the rebel army arc lost because they fear to allow our forces to marcli away from the apron strings of this mother of de <1 po~ llticisns. If tbe seat of government had been at tbo North it would have becu equivalent to a hundred and fifty thousand men added to our moveable forces. NATAL PROMOTION. This correspondence recently stated that Captain Saimic' Phillips Lee rvas appointed Acting Rear Admiral of the North Atlantic Blockading squadron, it may now bo added that the s.imo rank has boon conferred upon Com modore Charles Wilkes, commanding the special West India squadron; upon Commodore J. L. Lardnor, com manding the Eastern Gulf Blockading squadron; upon Commodore C, H. Davis, commanding tlie Naval Missis, sippl fleet: and upon Commodore C. 11. Eell, commanding the Pacific squadron.

CONTINUANCE OF THE OVERLAND MAIL. Tho Post Ofllce Department has ordered the continn anre of the Pacifle mall on the overland route, having re ceived reliable information that there is no danger to be apprehended from their being tampered with by Indians. It is positively asserted that since the removal of tho Cherokee tribe at no time has there been any nocossity for the mails being discontinued. The great overland mail now passes daily through Denver. I'an-engors are constantly travelling on this route. TREASURY NOTEM OF SMALL DENOMINATIONS. The Treasury Department is now getting oil'gonio eighty thousand dollars daily in notes of the dccomi' at ion or one and two dollars. This amount of i-sue will be doubled in a few days through a multiplication of the engravod plates. RESTRICTION OF BANK NOTE CIRCULATION. A nottco from the Secretary of the Treasury may bo shortly evpocttd, forbidding the issue of small notes by banks here, or of tbo circulation in this city*of the small notes of Northern banks.

AMUSEMENTS LAST EVENING. Academy of Music. DEBUT OK MISS CAHLOTTA PATTT. There was a splendid bouse last night to welcome to the stage another member of that family which has been so long identified with musical alfairs in this country, and which bids fair in the future to reflect upon us rouqo portion of the artistic prestige which Italy, Franco and Germany have hitherto monopolized. Viewed in this light, as well as iu reference to the unquestionable merits of the fair aspirunt for lyrical honors, it is not sur. pricing that the debut of Miss Tatti should have excited among our community more than usual interest. Bellini's operas are In general best suited to tho dasof singers whom the French style rhantettscs leinet. They are wanting in thoso noble orchestral effects niioidedhy which tho action of tho stage rarely risoB to the level of grandeur. On tho other hand thoy are full or tho happiest pool ic inspirations in the form of de licious melodies, and there,ore more frequently afforjJ a test of vocal excellence than tho higher class of compo sitions. For this reason met of I lie great artists who have risen to fuiue within tho last quarter of a century have Included one or more of his creations in their rtperloiret. In tho role of Am.na, Ma!ihrsn,Sontag, .'orsinni, Gassier and Jenny Lind won their greatest successes. U is a part which requires extended compass of voice, great flexibili ty, and judgment to rorist tho temptation to overcharge with fiorUure its beautiful melodies, it demands, moreo ver, sentiment aud feeling, wilh a 'air '.hare of per.-ona! attractions and youthfulne?s of appearance. In reference to all tin u qualities the rhoico by Miss Patti of this role for her debut was an ex ceedingly happy one. lier voice takes a groat range, and is wonderfully agifo in execution. She is young, she is pretty, and sho baa all that freshness aud apparent tw >'t which are essen tial to the rot lizntion of tho librettist's ideal. The only doubt that remained to bo solved in lier regard was whether tho novelty of her situation and unfamiliarity with stage usages would not so paru'.yza her ; owers as to render the eBbrt a failure, or, at all events, detract greatly fi t m her success. Thanks to her tin.' musical organization aud the careful training of figuor Scola, she has triumphantly passed the ordeal. Dominating tho artistic interest of tho occur I >n, it was plain, wai tho curiosity oxcltedjtmong the iv-in tic portion of tho audi noo to seo how far the physical difllculty under which sho has been so recently Inboi ing lcid been ovorcine. On hor entrance every eye was strained to watch the manner in which sho would advance towards the footlights. Although the limp was still plainly j>or cepttble, there was a wonderful Improvement, and the plaudits of welcome with which she was received were redoubled from surprise at the facility with which sho moved, 'l'ho first fow phrases of recitation which she uttered wore almost indistinct from nervous ness; but after a few moments this wore off' aud her opening cnvutlna was delivered with all tho pa e and hrilliuucy which she is accustomed to display in her vocal efforts. There was a m a ke 1 difference In the volume of ber voice In tho recitative p.i sages 9nd in lier singing, a (act to be accounted for by hor newness to the stage. In hi-r bye play, too, there was a little restraint; but both these defects w ill disap pear when she becomes at home in her parts. Even as it was she gathered more strength und confidence as the opera progressed, and sang and acted with ns ra.ich spirit as could bo exported under tho circumstances. In the finale of the first act she made a marked impression, and the curtain fell amid enthusiastic applause, which was continued until alio was brought out to receive a fresh ovation in the form i*f floral offerings. In ills second act sho suslainod herself ad mirably throughout, singing charmingly, and in the mill scene, the most trying ordeal that un artist can pass through, she was thrillirgly effective, lier rondo was capitally delivere l.Vid derived fresh beauties from her exquisite vocalization. The impression which she left artistically was a most satisfactory one, and only increased the regret th it there should still remain the slightest physical blemish on soffair a performance. At the clcro of the opera she was again culled before the curtain. The Klviuoof the evening was Signer Sbrtglia, who. among, t bis other rccommcuda.ions, had the rate merit of thinking less of himsolf than of the debutante, to whom he gave most effective support. Of Susiui's Ri doiplio we need scuicely say that It was, as usual, broad, vigor ous, and excc'lently sung. The conductor was Muzio, who made the most of tho limilod resources at bis dis posal. Miss Patll will appear on .Wednesday in Lucia, and will ho supported on this oc usnn by Brignoli. Wcllieh'it Ylirati??Sch?ol fur Hcnndal. The rendering of this li'.c and inexhaustible old play at Wallace's last night won the unqualified approbation of a foil and a distinguished audie; re. The part.cuiar feature of the evening was the Sir I'eter Teazle of Mr John Oil b<u t, in the place of that old favorite Fir Peter, the jovial and genial Blair". Mnch therefore w.ii expo led of Mr. Gilbert in the assumption of this character on h 8 I r-t ap pearaacc: and when we say that the house was perfectly sail had with his execution of the part, we behove that wo are only doing simple justice to this careful and finished actor, and to bis critical and discriminating au dience.
