IT HAS BEENLONG THE PRACTICE of this office to pay the drafts drawn and nego tiated by contractors for carrying the United States mails, for the amounts, respectively.of their quarterly pay. It was established to accommo date the contractors, and meet their necessities, in advance of the regular and slswer process of pay ing by the drafts or warrants of the department, and was intended only to apply to one draft per route from each contractor for the whole amount, (deducting finei, collections, See.,) of his quarterly pay; but it has been, and is quite generally so misunderstood, as to be supposed to allow any number of drafts, and for any amount, not exceed ingin the aggregate, the contract pay for the quar ter. A privilege conceded for aacommodation (for it was never anything more) has thus been made to embarrass materially the business of this office, forced upon it the settlement of the private ac counts of contractors, and thrown upon the ex changes ol the country, with a quasi sanction ol this office, a species of paper currency unauthor ised by the laws. I. not unfrequently occurs, too, that this office is ?Xposed to great and unnecessary risk jn deter mining upon the genuineness of the signatures to the assignments or endorsements of the various persons' through whose hands these drafts are made to pass before their presentation. It is therefore deemed proper to give this public notice to contractors, and all concerned, that from and after the 1st day of January, 1854, but one draft for the pay upon each route per quarter will be payed, or filed for payment, in this office. This draft should state upon its face, that it is the only one for the quarter and the route (both to be spec-i fied)on which it is drawn: and the signature there to should be attested by the postmaster at the place where it may be drawn, and one other witness; and each assignment thereof should be attested by twt> witnesses.

The saving effected by the use of it will b? found fully 25 per cent, in ev ery person's gas bill. It can be so adjusted as to supply the gas at any desired pressure less than that of the street, and when once adjusted, the Regulator will oonlinue to supply the gas at that pressure uniformly, without requiring further care or attention, and independent of all the fluctua tions of the street pressure. An additional advan tage obtained by this Regulator is a light of a more agreeable quality, in place of the bluish white color of the ordinary gas light, occasioned by the high pressure at which the gas is consumed. As an evidence of its practical utility, it is now in op eration in some of the principal notels and large stores in New York city, who all bear favorable testimony to its value. It has also received the united commendations of the press. Hotel proprietors and storekeepers in the city of Washington and its vicinity, desirous to avail themselves of the economiser. can obtain all fur ther information by calling on the subscriber, who has fitted one of these Regulators up in his store, and will give an illustration of it.

In cases of impotency, Hemorrhages, Disordered Sterility,- Menstruation,or Suppression of (he Menses, Fluor Albus or Whites, or for Debility urising from any cause, such as weakness from sickness, where the patient has been confined to bed for some time, for females after confinement, abortiou or miscarriage, this cordial cannot be excelled in its salutary effects f or iu loss of muscular energy, irritability, physical frostration, seminal weakness, palpitation of the eart, indigestion, sluggishness, decay of the pro creative functions, nervousness, &c., where a tonic medicine is required, it will be found equal if not superior to ony compound ever used. To Females.?Henry's Invigorating Cordial is one of the most invaluable medicines in the many complaints to which females are subject. It as sists nature to brace the whole system, check ex cesses, and creates renewed health and happiness. Less suffering, disease, and unhappiness among ladies would exist, were they generally to adopt the use of this cordial. Ladies who are debilitated by those obstructions which females are liable to, are restored by the use of a bottle or two to bloom and to vigor. Young Men.?That solitary practicfc, so fatal to the existence of man, and it is the young who are most apt to bccoine its victims, from an ignorance of the danger to which they subject themselves, causes Nervous Debility, weakness of the system, and premature decay. Many of you may now be suffering, misled as to the cause or source of dis ease. To those, then, who by excess have brought on themselves premature impotenpy, involuntary seminal emissions, weakness and shrivelling of the genital organs, nervous affection, or any other consequences of unrestricted Indulgence of the sensual passions, occasioning the necessity of re nouncing: the felicities of Marriage, lessening both mental and bodily ca pacity, hold! Henry's Invigorating Cordial, a medi cine that is purely vegetable, will aid nature to re store those important functions to a healthy state, and will prove of service to yon. It possesses rare virtues, is a general remover of disease, and strengthener of the system. As a Tonic Medicine, it is unsurpassed. We do not place this cordial on a footing with quack medicines, and, as is customary, append a long list of recommendations, certificates, See., begin ning with '? Hear what the Preacher says," and such like; it is not necessary, for ?'Henry's Invig orating Cordialonly needs a trial to prove that it will ijccomplish all we say. The Genuine "Henry's Invigorating Cor dial "is put up in eight ox. panne? bottles, and is easily recognised by the manufacturer's signature on the label ot each bottle, (to counterfeit which is forgery.) ^S^uSold for $-2 per bottle; six for $8; $10 per dozen.

BEACH, Editor of the People's Journal, Patent Agent, Sic., No. 86 Nassau street, New York. Nov. 23?# ~ PROSPECTUS OF THE NORTH CAROLINA STATESMAN. THE undersigned propose, on the first day of January next, at Raleigh, North Carolina, to begin the publication of the North Carolina States man, a semi-weekly and weekly paper, devoted to politics, news, and miscellaneous subjects, and respectfully solicit for it a share of the patronage of the democratic party, their friends, and the public. Invited by many leading persons of the State rights republican party to propagate and defend principles which we have always held, and regard as the only basis of prosperity in our lorin of gov ernment, and inspired with a sincere desire to serve that party and advance its interests, we pro pose to issue a paper at the seat of the State gov ernment. In the field of editorial enterprise, there is ample room for those who are now holding po sition, as well as for others, who choose to enter into fair competition. The propagation of the principles of our party is a duty at once import ant, and to us peculiarly agreeable. The attrac tions of the editorial profession and its honorable toils, together with a desire to extend its influence, has had much weight in the decision which we have made?a profession at once dignified and elevated, where the highest intellectual gills may find full employment, and the purest patriotism make contribution to the public weal. We arc persuaded that a journal, conducted with fairness and discretion?uninfluenced by selfishness and devoted to principle, may secure sufficient patron age, without interfering with the claims or rights ol any now prosecuting the same great work. Although mainly devoted to the discussion of such political questions, as they arise, which affect the welfare of North Carolina, whether relating to the federal or State governments, or such local in terests as may be of importance, it is nevertheless intended to make the Statesman a medium of ge neral intelligence. Accordingly, the state of the markets in the principal cities, to which our com merce goes, sliull be fully and accurately repotted; nor wilf tho attention of the conductors be less ad dressed to the subject of internal improvements, as a means indispensable to the development of the mineral and agricultural resources of the State. These interests, of primary importauce, shall al ways command their fullest attention. To this they propose to add carefully selected and original literary matter. Being strictly conservative, they propose to avail themselves of all the lights of ex perience, in that progress, which promises the ad vancement of the interests of North Carolina. The general objects of the proposed paper being thus clearly indicated, it may not be ainiss briefly to state the particular views which are to be* sus tained by it as a political journal. 1st. Our purpose being to publish a paper purely de mocratic, according to the straightest requirements of that party, we shall advocate strict party organi zation in its fullest and most comprehensive sense; an organization which originates iu the popular will, expressed by the people in their primary as semblies, and which has been so successfully in troduced among the democracy of many of the ether States, by which the rank and file of the party are, in fact, those who indicate its decisions, und, being all brought into action, express their will imperatively; thus, by open and fair dealing, commanding respect and obedience; an organiza tion of the people, and not of intriguers; restoring power to those who, by sufferance, have tolerated its temporary usurpation. 2d. The democratic party shall always find in us advocates of their right to select their staudard bearers, and to command acquiescence in decisions made by conventions fairly elected in their primary meetings. Standing upon the good old State rights platform of '98, we shall oppose government corporations created by Congress for the purpose of internal improvement, the regulation of finance, or any other measure inconsistent with the rights of the States. 3d. Believing that the platform adopted by the late Baltimore convention contains the democratic creed, they expect cordially to suslaiu the present administration, trusting that the policy adopted by those'who compose it will be regulated by the cardinal doctrines of the American democracy. 4th. They will advocate all such measures of in ternal improvement as promise by judicious prose cution to promote the interests of the people and diffuse the benefits of a system already enjoyed by portions of the State. f?th. The disposition of the public, lands being a question of the most absorbing interest, we be lieve it should be at once met and settled. The unjust and unequal legislation of Congress, in re lation to those lands, and the larpe and frequent appropriations made to the new States, indicate a final departure from the old and wise policy of ap propriating the proceeds of their sales to the pay ment of the public debt, and the expenses of the government. It has for some time ceased to lie either a subject of hope or expectation that there I will ever be a return to a policy which had so much to recommend it. ' Believing that this sys tem of squandering and prodigality is not only to J continue but to grow worse, we shall pr*le?l against it, and assert the right of the old States to their equitable share of the lands which remain. The power "to dispose of the public lands being explicitly declared in the Constitution, the exer cise of that power is a ouestionof policy, liolh as to the time and tbe mode." Believing, as we do. that it has liecome the settled policy of Congress to squander the public lands, we adopt the patri otic language of Mr. Dobbin, and say that '"all of North Carolina's sons, both wliigs and demo crats, idiould protest, and demand North Caro lina's share of the public domain." Gtli. Approving of the sentiments of the inaugu ral of the President, we shall oppose the acquisi tion of Cuba or any other foreign territory, unless such acquisition I)? in accordance with existing treaties, and entirely consisfent with the national honor. Terms.?For the semi-weekly, S-l per annum; and for the weekly, S2; payment in advance. Communications should be addressed to "The editor of the North Carolina Statesman, Raleigh, N. CEDWARD CANTWELL.

Each number contains sixteen quarto pages, lour of which are new music, con sistingof glees, hymn tunes, chants, anthems, dedi cation and holyday pieces, and, in short, every variety of music adapted to purposes of religious worship, to public occasions and to the home cir cle ; all of which will be of a practical character, and such as can be sung by persons of ordinary musical attainments. In the editorial department ol the Review are engaged, (in addition to Mr. Cady, the former editor,) gentlemen of the highest talent and ripest musical experience, among whom are, George F. Hoot, Win. B. Bradbury, Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Mason ; and its circle of cor respondence, home and foreign, is complete.

The sub scription list of this paper is now larger than that of any similar journal in the world, and the new arrangements, rendering it the cheapest as well as (it'is hoped) the most valuable paper ever pub lished, must largely iucreuse its ulready unparal elled circulation.

Besides this there will lie an immense amount of musical news, essays, criticisms, instructions. Arc., tec., all for only one tlollar !

GAZETTEER OF THE UN 1TED~~STATES WILT, POSITIVELY HE PUBLISHED in December, Lipmncott, Grambo ic Cos new and complete Gazetteer of the United States. Edited by T. Baldwin and J. Thomas, M. D. With a new and superb map of the United States, engraved on steel. The publishers take pleasure in announcing the completion of this, the most elaborate, compre hensive, and perfect Gazetteer of the United States tlint has ever issued from the press. In its preparation no considerations of expense or labor have be^n allowed to interfere with a work de signed to be ns perfect as possible in every de partment, aud in all of its detail. Nor have the successive issues of other Gazetteers, hurried through the press to claim the market, tempted the publishers to offer their book before all the ample census (of ls50) and other material in the hands of the editors were fully diglMed and accu rately arranged. When the Gazetteer was first announced 800 pages, or at the most 900, were designed ns the limit of the book. But so vast was the amount of matter, accumulated through the personal labor* of the editors and their assistants, as well ns through the active efforts of several thousand cor respondents in nil pnrts of the United States, the work has swelled to near 1,300 phges. The amount of new matter which it contains, all of a recent character, is very large, and in many in stances embracing statistics and populations to 1853. This gives it an intrinsic value over every other work of the kind in existence. We therefore offer our Gazetteer confidently, as the only complete and thoroughly reliable Gazet teer of the Vtnted States yet published. As aliove stated, the woric is now ready, and will be published in Dcceml>er, 1853. Price to subscribers, S3 50; to non-subscriliers, S4. N.
