Auditor's Office, Post Office 'Department, November 1, lb?>3. 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 slower process of pay ing by the drafts or warrants of the department, and was intended only to apply to one draft p<*r route from each contractor for the whole amount. (deducting fines, collections. .See.,) of las quarterly pay; but it has been, and is quite gen'-rally so misunderstood, as to be supposed to allow any number of drafts, and lor any amount, not cxeeed 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 pi irate ac counts of contractors, and thrown -upon the ex changes ol the country, with a quasi sanction ot this o/fice, a species of paper currency unauthor ized by the laws. It not unfrequently occurs, too. that this office is exposed to great and unnecessary risk in tktcr miuing upon the genuineness of the signatures to the assignments or endorsements ol' the various persons through whose hands these drafts ure 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, 1S54, 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 (l>oth to be speci lied) on which it is drawn: and the signature there to should be attested Ay the post waiter at the place where it may be drawn, and one, ether witness; and each assignmer.: thereof should be attested ly two witnesses.

BEACH, Editor of the People's Journal, Patent Agent, See., 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 Degin the publication of the North Carolina SttUu man, a semi-weekly and weekly paper, devoted to polities, 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 lorm 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: no sition, as well as for others, who choose to euter into bur competition. The propagation of the principles ot our parly is a uuty at once import ant, and to us peculiarly agreeable. The'attrac lions el the editorial profession and its honorable oils, 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 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 eur co-u rn crce goes, shall be fully and accurately reported; norwill 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 tamed by it as a political journal. 1st. Our purpose beingto publish a paperpurely de mocratic, according to the straightest requirements ol 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 ?ther 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 9s, we shall oppose government corporations created by Congress for the purpose of internal improvement, tbe regulation of finance or any other measure inconsistent with the rights ol the States. b 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 regulated by the cardinal doctrincs 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 portions of the Slate. 5ih. 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, indicnte a final departure from the old and w ise 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 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 grew 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 the mode." Believing, as we do. that it has become the settled policy of Congress to squander the public lands, we adopt the patri otic langunire of Mr. Dobbin, and say that "all of North Carolina's sons, both whigs and demo crats, should protest, aid 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.

This journal, (which has heretofore been published monthly,) commences its fifth year in Jauiiary next, und 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, four 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 of 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 nnd foreign, is complete. The Review will also be a regular medium for the an nouncemcnt 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 already unparal elled circulation. Terms: One dollar per annum, or six copies far Jive dollars, always in advance. The music alone in a volume would cost over tivu dollars in the usual form. Besides this there will bean immense nmount of musical news, essays, criticisms, instructions. Sec., Sic., all for only one dollar!

GAZETTEER OF THE UNITED STATES WILL POSITIVELY BE PUBLISHED in December, LiprtscoTT, Crambo & Co'? 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 that has 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 J)e as perfect as possible in every de partment, and 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 1850) and other material in tha hands of the editors were fuliy digested and accu rately arranged. y When the Gazetteer was first announced 800 pages, or at the most SH)0, were designed as the limit of the book. But so vast was the amount of matter, accumulated through the personal Inbors of the editors and their assistants, as well ns through the active efforts of several thousand cor respondents in all parts of the United States, tho work has swelled to near 1.300 pages. The amount of new matter which it contains, all of a recent character, is very large, nnd in many in stances embracing statistics nnd populations to 1853. This gives it an intrinsic value over every other work of the kind in existence. We therefore offer our Gazetteer confidently, a* the only complete and thoroughly reliable Gaxet tetr of the United States yet published. A? above stated, the work is now ready, and will be published in December, 1853. Prica to ?irbscribers. S3 50; to non-aubscribars, S4. N. B.
