Auditor's Office, Post Office Department, Nuvcvibef 1, 1853. IT HAS OEENLONG 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 slewer 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 u-hoLr amount, (deducting lines, collections, &c..) 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 tor any amount, not exceed ing in 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 oriice. forced upon it the settlement of the private ac counts of contractors, and thrown upou the ex changes ol the country, with a quasi sanction of this office, a species of paper currency unauthor ised by the laws. It not unfrequently occurs, too, that this office is exposed to great and unnecessary risk in deter mining upou the genuineness of the signatures to the assignments or endorsements ol' 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. 1654, 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 one for the quarter and the route (both to be speci fied) on which it is drawn: xind the signature there to should be attested by the postmaster at the place where it may bt drawn, and one other witness; and taeJi assignmer.: thereof should be attesttd by tiro witnesses.

It can be so adjusted as to supply the pas at any desired pressure les? than that of the street, and when once adjusted, the Regulator will continue to supply the pas 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 itractical utility, it is now in op eration in some of the principal notels and lar^e stores in New York city, who all l*>ar favorable ! testimony to its value.

In cases of Impotency, Hcemorrhages, 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 confinement, abortion or miscarriage, this 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 ol the pro creative functions, nervousness, See., where a tonic 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 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. < \ oung Men.?That solitary practice, so fatal to the existence of man, and jt 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 prematura 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 impotency, involuntary seminal emissions, weakness and shrivelling of I 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 you. It possesses rare virtues, is a general remover of disease, and strengthener of the system. As a Tonic Medicine, it is unsurpassed.

THE undersigned propose, on the first day of January next, at Raleigh, North Carolina, to begin the publication of the North Carolina Statej 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 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 hohorable 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 ftill employment, and the purest patriotism malce 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 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 tne principal citics, to which eur 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 Stnte. 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 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 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 ether 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, aud to command acquiescence in decisions made by conventions fairly elected in their primary meetings. Standing upon the good old State ri^its platform of '9S, 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 th^democratic creed, they expect cordially to sustain 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 bv portion* of the State. 5th. The deposition 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 censcd 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 pretest 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 question of policy, both as to the time and tbe 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." 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 be in accordance with existing treaties, and entirely consistent with the national honor. Terms.?For the semi-weekly, $4 per annum; 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 January next, aiid 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 ot 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. Root, 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 increase its already unparal elled circulation. Terms: One dollar per annum, or six copies far Jive dollars, always in advance. JpSF The music alone in a volume would cost over five dollars in the usual form. Besides this there will bean immense amount of musical news, essays, criticisms, instructions. &c., &c., all fur only one dollar!

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 threw 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 12J ?

In Cases of Refusal by Hackmento takk Pas sengers.?Hackmen arc required by law to carry all passengers renderingthem the l?gal fare, unless previously engaged for the time necessary to trans port passenger* offering him the fare, under a penalty of live 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 iive dollar*.

That officer will protect the 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. Strangers reaching the depot from steamboats or other places from whom illegal fare is demanded will apply to the police officer in attendance, whose duty it is to ascertain whether the fare demanded be illegal, and if so, to prosecute the offending hackman. ?ttam gtobipta.

GAZETTEER OF THE UNITED STATES WILL POSITIVELY BE PUBLISHED in December, Lippincott, Grambo dt Go's 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 anhouncing the completion of this, the most elaborate, compre hensive, and perfect Gazetteer of the United States that has ever issued from the press. In its preparation no considerations of expense or labor nave 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 the successivo 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 1850) and other material in the hands of the editors were fully digested ond^^u rately arranged. When the Gazetteer was first announced't>00 f>ages, or at the most 900, were designed as the imit of the book. But so vast was the amount of matter, accumulated through the personal labors of the editors and their assistants, as well as through the active efforts of 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 cohtains, 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 United States yet published. As above stated, the work is now ready, and will be published in December, 1853. Price to subscribers, 83 50; to non-subscribors, $4. N. B.
