Audi toe's Office, Post Office Department, November 1, 1853. IT HAS BEENLONG THE PRACTICE of this office to pay the drafts drawn and nego tiated by contractors for carrying the Uuited States mails, for the amounts, respectively,ol their quarterly pay. It was established to accommo date the contractors, and meet their necessities, in advance of the regular and slower process of pay ing by the drafts or warrants of the department, and was intended only to apply to one draft pur route from each contractor for the whole amount. (deducting fines, collections, dec.,) of his quarterly pay; but it has been, and is quite generally so misunderMood. 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 accommodation (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 o^the country, with a quasi sanction ol this office, a species of paper currency unauthor ized by the laws. I not unfrequently occurs, too, that this office is ex^jsed to great and unnecessary risk in 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 stale upon its face, that it is the only otis forth? quarter and the route (both to be speci 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 assignmer.: thereof should be attested by two witnesses. , WM.

(m) PATENT GAS REGULATOR.?The In ventor (Dr. Kidder) of this economical and useful instrument deserves the thanks of the gas ?<onsuming community. The saving effected by the use ol it will be found fully 25 per cent, in ev ery person's gas bill. It can be so adjusted as to supply the gas at any denired pressure less than that of the street, and when once adjusted, the Regulator will continue 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 tnis 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 ia some of the principal notels and large stores in New York city, who all bear favorable testimony to its va/oe. It has also receipted 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 obtsin all fur ther information by calling on (be subscriber, who bas fitted ene of these Regulators up in his store, and will give an illustration of it.

Dec 3?3md (m) ENRY's INVIGORATING CORDIAL, Purely Vegetable in its composition.?This invaluable Cordial is extracted from Herbs and Rrrts, which have been found after years of ex perience, by the most skillful physicians, to be possessed of qualities the most beneficial in the diseases for which it is recommended ; aud hence, whilst it is presented to the public as an effica cious remedy, it is also known to be of that char acter on which reliance may be placed as to its safety. In cases of Impotency, Haemorrhages, Disordered Sterility, Menstruation,or Suppression of the Menses, Fluor Albus or Whites, or for Debility arising from any canse, such as weakness from sickness, where the patient has been confined to bed for some time, for females after cdntinenient, abortion or miscarriage, this I cordial cannot be excelled in its salutary effects ; or in loss of muscular energy, irritability, physical prostration, seminal weakness, palpitation of the heart, indigestion, sluggishness, decay ot the pro I creative lunctions, nervousness, Arc., where a toxic medicine is required, it will be found equal if not superior to any 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 unhnppincss 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 Meu.?That solitary practice, so fatal to the existence of man, and it is the young who are most apt to become its victims, from an ignorance of the danger to which they subject themselves, causes Nervous Debility, weakness of the system, and premature decay. Many ol you may now be suffering, misled as to the cause or source ot dis ease. To those, then, who by excess have brought on themselves premature impotency, involuntary seminal emissions, weakness and shrivelling ot the genital organs, nervous affection, or any other consequences of unrestricted Indulgence ol the sensual passions, occasioning tho necessity of re nouncing the felicities ot Marriage, lessening both mental nnd bodily ca pacity, hold) Henry's luvigorating 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 you. 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, Jcc., begin ning with li Hear what the Preacher says," and such like; it is not necessary, for "Henry's Invig orating Cordial" only need* a trial to prove that it will accomplish all we say.

BEACH, Editor of the People's, Journal, Patent Agent, &c., 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 u* the only basis of prosperity in our form 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 us tor others, who choose to enter into fnir competition. The propagation of the principles of our parly 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 .oncc dignified and elevated, where the highest intellectual gilts may find lull employment, and the purest patriotism make contribution to the public weal. We are pcrsunded that u 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 ot any now prosecuting the same great work. Although mainly devwted to the discussion of such political questions, as they arise, which uflect 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, shall be fully and accurately repotted; nor will the 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 importance, 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 amiss briefly to state the particular views which are to be sus tained by it as a political journal. 1st. Our purposebeingtopublish a paper purely de mocratic, according tp the straightest requirements of that party, we shall advocate strict party organi zation in its fullest and most comprehensive sense; an organization which originates in 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 other States, by which the rank and file of the party are, in fact, those who indicate its decisions, and. 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. 1 he democratic party shall always find in us advocates of their right to select their standard 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 cor]>orations created by Congress for the purpose ol 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 sustain the present administration, trusting that the policy adopted by those who compose it will be regulateu 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 portion* of the State. 5th. 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 large 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 be either a subject of hope or expectation that there will ever l>e a return to n policy which had so much to recommend it. Believing that this sys tem of squandering and priMligality is not only to continue but to grow worse, we shall protest against it, and assert the right of the old Suites to their equitable share of the lands which remain. The power "to dispose of the public lands l?eing explicitly declared in the Constitution, the exer cise of that |>ower is a nucstionof policy, Utth ns to the time and tbe mode." Believing, as we do. that it has become the nettled 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, !?oth whigs and demo crats, should protest, and demand North Caro lina's share of the public domain." 6th. 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 t>e in accordance with existing treaties, and entirely consistent with the national honor. ' Terms.?For the semi-weekly, $4 per nnnum; and for the weekly, *2; payment in advance. Communications should be addressed to "The editor of the North Carolina Statesman, Raleigh, N. C."

This journal, (which has heretofore been published monthly,) commences its fifth year in Januarv next, and thenceforwarded it will be published every two weeks?on-every other Thursday; thereby giving more than twice as much matter without any in crease in price. Each number contains sixteen quarto pages, lour of which are new music, con sisting of 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. Cody, the former editor.) gentlemen of the highest talent and ripest musical experience, among whom are, George F. Root, Won. B. Bradbury, Thomas Hastings, and Lowell Mason ; and its circle of cor respondence, home and foreign, is complete. The Review will ulso be u regular medium for the an nouncement of new musical publications by all the leading publishing houses in the Union. 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 increase its alreudy unparal elled circulation. Terms: One dollar per annum, or six copies fer Jive dollars, always in advance. ysSt' The music alone in a volume would cost over live dollars in the usual form. Besides this there will l>eun immense amount of musical news, essays, criticisms, instructions, &c., &c., all for only one dollar!
