Auditor's Office, Post Office Department, November 1, 1853. IT HAS UEENLONG THE PRACTICE of this office to pay the drafts drawn aud 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 slewer process of pay ing by the drafts or warrants of the department, and was intended only to apply to on* draft per route from each contractor for tha whole amount, (deducting fines, collections, dec.,) 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 (or any amount, not exceed ingia the aggregate, the contract pay for the quar ter. A privi'ege 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 ot the country, with a quasi sanction ot this office, a species of paper currency unauthor ised by the laws. it not unfrequcntly occurs, too, that this office is exposed 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 had 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 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, ar.d one other witness; and iaeh assignment thereof should be attested by two mtnmses.

The saving effected by the us* of it will be found fully 2.1 per cent, in ev ery person's gas bill. It can l>e so adjusted as to supply the gas at any desired 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 this Regulator is a light of a more agreeable quality, in place of the bluish white color of the ordinary gas light, occasioned l?y the high pressure at which the gas is consumed. As au evidence of its practical utility, it is now in op eration in some of the pr.ncipaf notels and large stores in New York city, who all bear favorable trMimony to its value.

Nov. 23?* PROSPECTUS OF THE ~ NORTH CAROLINA STATESMAN. THE undersigned propose, on the first day of January next, at Raleigh, North Carolina, to begiu 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 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 sefet 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 chofse 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 gifts may find full employment, and the purest patriotism make contribution to the public weal. We are 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 of any now prosecuting the same great work. Although mainly deveted 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 6uch local in terests as maybe 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 reported; nor will the attention of the condactors 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 purpose beingto publish apaper 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 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 wthcr 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. The 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 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 sustain the present administration, trusting that the policy adopted by those who compose it will be regulatea by the cardinal doctrines of the American democracy. 4th. They will advocate all such measures of in ternal improvement a? promise by judicious prose cution to promote the interests of the people and difl'usc the benefits of a system all-eady enjoyed by portions of the State. 3th. The disposition of the pnblic 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 linal 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 expense* of the government. It hns for some time ceased to be either a subject of hope or expectation that there 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 continue but to grow worse, we shall pratest against it, and assert the right of the old States to their equitable share of the lahds which remain. The power "to dispose of the public lands being explicitly declared in the .Constitution, the exer cisc of thnt power is a question of policy, both as ( to the time and tie mode." Believing, as we do. that it has become 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 whigs and demo crats, should protest, and demand North Caro lina's share of the public domain-" 0th. 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 be ill accordance with existing treaties, and entirely consistent with the Rational honor.

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 at (it is hoped) the most valuable paper ever pub lished, must largely increase its already unparal elled circulation.

How to Know who the Hackman is.?All hacks are required to be licensed, and to have the num ber of their licenses to be painted in black figures of not less than two inches in depth, on the front and side of each lamp attached to such carriage ; or, if there be no lamps, the numbers shall be con spicuously painted on each side of the driver's box. In case any stranger or other person feels him self aggrieved by any hack-driver, let him obtain the number of the hack. How to reach him with the law is hereafter pointed out. Rates of Fare Allowed by Law.?For each passenger for any distance not over one mile and a half 25 cents. Over one and a half miles, and not over three miles 50 " When detained on route over five min utes, driver to be allowed, in addi tion, for each quarter of an hour de ned A 12* ??

When any number of persons employ a hack the driver is not allowed to take up any other pas itcng< r. provided the occupant will pay him the fare of three persons. Hackmen are allowed to receive a greater com pcusation than is fixed by law if it be voluntarily offered by the passenger; but if lie receive the same without informing the passenger that it is greater than his legal fare, he is guilty of having demanded the illegal fare. In Cases of Refusal by Hackmen to take Pas sengers.?llackmen are required by law to carry all passengers renderingtherri the legul fare, unless previously engaged for the time necessary to trans port passengers offering him the fare, under a penalty of five dollars. When a hackman shall refuse to take passen gers, on the plea of a previous engagement, he is required to give the name and residence of the person by whom he is so engaged, under a penalty of five dollars. If it should appear that the plea of a previous engagement was a false one. or that the informa tion of the name and residence of the person given by the hackman was false, then the hackman incurs a penalty of five dollars. Pknaltt for Demanding Illegal Fare.?The penalty for demanding a higher rate of fare for the transportation of passengers, is five dollars for each offence ; and the person paying the illegal fare may recover back the amount over and above the sum allowed by law. Where illegal fare is demanded or received of a stranger, or any person who shall not at the time have resided twelve months in the city, the pen alty for so doing is double, or ten dollars for each ofience. Sleighs.?The rates of fare and all the other con ditions, terras, and penalties, prescribed by law for the regulation of hackney carriages, apply to all sleighs running for hire within the city of Wash ington. Drivers.?No person under sixteen years of age is allowed by law to drive any hack, cab, or sleigh for hire in this city, under a penalty of five dollars. How to Vindicatr the Law.?-Strangers and others arriving in the city by the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, who shall apply to a hackman for tha use of his vehicle and be refused, or who shall be asked and required to pay over and above the legal rates of fare, will observe tha number on the hack, and immediately inform tha police officer whoH duly il is to be in tttendmce it the depot. That officer will protect tha passenger from impo sition, secure him a hack, and prosecute the of fending hackman. Any refusal or neglect by the police officer at the depot to execute the law in this respect he knows will be followed promptly by his dismissal. Straagera reaching the depot from steamboats or other places from whom illegal fare ia demanded will apply to the police officer in attendance, whose daty it is to ascertain whether the fare demanded be illegal, and if so, to prosecute the offending baekman. * Sham Ifabiption. *EW YORK, BREMEN, and Southampton United States Mail ????i -The ship* rompriiin* WASHINOTON, Captain E.

The publishers take pleasure in announcing the completion of this, the most elaborate, compre hensive, and perfect Gazetteer of the United States that uas ever issued from the press. In its preparation no considerations of expense or labor have been allowed to interfere with a work de signed to be as perfect as possible in every de partment, and in all of its detail. Nor have tbe successive issues of other Gazetteers, hurried through the press to claim the market, templed the publisher* to offer their book before all the ample census fof 1850) and other maU'^'al ii> tbe hands of the editors were fully digested und 'accu rately arranged. When the Gazetteer was first announced 800 fmgea, or at the most 900, were designed as the imit of tbe book. Rut so vast was tbe amount of matter, accumulated through the personal labors of the editors and their assistants, as well as through the active eflortabf several thousand cor respondents in all narts of the United States, the work has swelled to near 1,300 pages. The amount of new matter which it contains, all of a recent character, is very large, and in many in ?'a"C<%?n,br*CIn* ?nd populations to lbo3. 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 Ga*tt teer of the T ,i ued State* yet published.
