Cheap Postage. We aee thai the Senste committee has re ported the cheap potlaga bill, paaaed by tbe Houae of Representatives a few days ago, with several amendments, among them we notice that they have struck out the clause allowing papera to go fiee w ithin thirty miles of the place of publication. As the intention of this clause of the act waa lo induce per aona to take " ihe papers," who would have imagined that a committee of " grave and reverend aeignora" like the Senate of the United Slates would bavs desired the act a mended in this particular. We hope the House will insist upon having thia clauae in cluded in the bill. Every inducement ought lobe held out lo the 'people lo obtain infor mation, and if rich men will grumble at paying poatage, which wo have heard of, it ia no wonder thst poor men complain.

The question waa asked ua, What has be come of the Slavery Resolutions 1 la look ins; over the proceedings of the few last days we find that both sets of resolutions, one intro duced in the Senate and the other in tbe House, were laid oo tbe table. Thus, after consum ing much time and at considerable expense no resolutions could be sgrced upon. Reso lutions approving of the compromise acts cer taioly ought to have been passed. We hsve no doubt that a large majority of the people of North Carolina approve of those measures, aod in oor view, the Legislature has not done what was its duty. We believe tbe people expected it, but perhaps the Legislature act ed upon the principle that " the leaat aaid aoocest meoded." DEATH OF Ma.

South j ' Carolina has appropriated len thousand dol lars towards publishing and distributing co pies of the work throughout the Stain, and in conjunction with VI r.
