The attention of the public has been particular ly called to the tubject of the reduction ofpostage. Petitions from every quarter of tho United States, fiver of amending the constitution, which were numerously li-ncd, have been presented to Con- nfll'ied in th Senate by Mr. Bates, and tn reply to same questions, Mr Adams stated they were in iroduced in tho lower House, by tho leading Democratic member, and were passed unanimous ly. Mr. J. Ingersoll would put nn important question. Did not the gcntlcnvtn pen the resolu tion himself? .17r Adams did not reply. lie was nsked why he presented these resolutions, when he had the same subject under consideration in tho committee of which he was the chairman. No debate was nltowcd on Ihe subject. Whdntsday, Jan. 21. SENATE. The Lir'ffbill of Mr. AJcDjflc was discussed at length, bnt incidentally, and rather upon the ques tion whether th" Senate could originate and disc-is a revenuo bill, tlian upon the merits or policy of high and low duties.

Mr Morris of Paa,tokuptBflcudUin?f4vorof Mr. Inzer- oil hit .Mr. Adams endorsed the ttatemrnt, gress at the present Session, asking that fhc rates of postage may be reduced and the franking privil ege abolished. The press is universally awake uponthis matter, urging with much force and rcason,tho necessity pf great and important chang cs in this Department. Our rates of postage arc cxhorbitantly high nnd are burdensome upon the community. The privelegc of franking, even if not abused, impos es upon a portion of the public tho burden of pay ing for the carriage of letters of another set of men, from vhich tho paying portion derives no benefit. Wo wish tho system of franking, with the single exception of tho Post-Office Depart ment and that confined strictly to tho business of the department, was abolished. That newspaper postage should be reduced and rates fixed accor ding to weight that thus there might be some equality between' he ordinary and mammoth sheet. Wo would not object to fixing tho rate of letters (single ) 5 cents for 500 miles nnd 10 cents for all distances over 500 miles, though wo arc inclined to think the rates should be still less. Yet we would be content at these rates with the expulsion of tho franking privclcge. A bill has alrcndv been introduced into tho Sen ate by Mr, Merrick, proposing important reduc tions but of which wo hope something valuable may result at this Session of Congress. And as this has nothing which need excite party fears or jealousies wc see not why the "collected wisdom" may not be profitably employed in its uiscasslon and due and specdv adjustment. Wc siy let the experiment be made allow rates of postage, and be so long countinued, that (ha re sult afford some data by which permanent regula. tions may be adopted regulations which shall sat isly the just demands of the public, and fully sup port tie department. FlTCHUURGIirilAlL ROAD. We have seen the report of the Directors of this Company, which has just been publuhed. The re port gives a very favorable new of this important road. The rails are already laid to Waltham, n dUtancc often miles, and the road is opened for the distance; and the directors say, that in all probtbil ity it will be opened to Concord by June, and to Shcrlry, uiihin eight mile of Filchburph, by Au. gust or September. The report speaks favorably of the extension of this road into this State, and be lieve that ihe Rutland route will be tho more im-poitant-they give In a note the tabular distance of the three principal routes-showing the Rutland route, by Keeno Ac., the shortest, and 12 miles shorter than the Montpelier and Concord route. The Fitchburgh road shown us what can bo ac complishcd by the indomitable energy of one man, who in the first place satisfies himself of the value and prarticabilily of his plan, and ihen pursues it irrespective ofthn prejudices, nnd ridicule, and in difference of ihe multitude, until trlumpunni success crowns his efforts. The encineer says "the road will be a remaikably cheap and substantial one," "and that tho expenses of operating It will b veiy small." We eive the following extract from the report as showing tho favorable influence of the exclusion of ardont spirits from such works. 1 lieOirectois say. "There is another fact to which it gives us gieat pleasure to allude; that is the perfect understanding nA trill uhich lins ever existed between tho contractors and the offit-ers of the road. Not one word or note of discord has been heard. Tho same spirit of harmony has extended itself among the op eratives. This is attributed, tn a grcai measure, id tho entire excluiion of ardont spirits from the lines." The success of this undertaking affords great n- eouragement to prosecute with vigor our purpose of extending this road to Uurlington, througli iveene and Rutland.

Sin: A friend has just called my attention to a communication in your paper, containing comments on an extract Irom a letter of mino which found its way into the Anti Slavery Reporter, in which, referring to the circul ation of an address of Dr. Lafon on the subject of the heathenism of sla very; I said that all the D, D's in Vermont were as cold aa icebergs on the subject of slavery, and ex pressed the opinion that the Doctor's address was as well adapted to their case as missionaiius to that of the heathen. Your correspondent shows his consistency by admitting, what is true, that the let ter was without any intention that it should be pub lished, and yet treating it, throughout, as though it was tuUnded, by. mo as a thrust at the D. D'a of Vermont, nd as a "couienance" of the wholesale Orson Muiray denunciations of them. This is un fair. I aui willing to be held responsible for en tertaining the feeling-expressed in the letter, under the circumstances attending its utterance ; but I am not willing to be held up, and it is not right that 1 should be held tip, as disposed to " rail at the priest hood" "tojark at ministers," and to join -in a cru sade against the clergy. Your correspondent well knows that I eniertain for them, as a body of men, great affection and respect. I think them, howev er, like other men, liable to err ; and hold them, like other men, subject to animadversion when they do err. If I should, in the strength of my feelings for tho oppressed, sometimes take the liberty to say ttat I think some of them are very cold 3n the sub jeet of slavery, it seems to roe ihey may find weap. ons ol defence, much better suited to their sacied calling, and much more in accordance with the spir it of the Master they serve, than those which your correspondent wields against me, and with the use of which he seems so familiar. And I must lake the liberty to say, that if he had a little more of the "meekness and charity" which ho ironically attrib utes tome, lie vould have spared bis sarcasms, as well as suppressed his efforts to blazon a letter which ho admits was not intended far the public ! eye. It seems to bo due to myself that I ibould state that the letter was written on my return fram a monthly concttt of prayer, where my heart had been exceedingly pained as It almost always is, at tliote meetings at ibe mtr silence whWi pervaded christian minisior in tho Stale, whether Dortorated or not, that is not an abolitionist, and hearlily anx ious for the abolition of slavcty." Now there is one lct to which I wish in bring this alledgcd hear- lu anxtitu fur the abolition of slavery. It is tho test, 1 suppose, to which your correspondent would bo willing that men's proteased hearty anxiety for "the heathen" should be subjected. The Saviour has said "out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh," This is sound philosophy, as wull as Christian truth. If a man's heart feels lor "tho heathen," liii muuth will speak out. There will be uttetaitcc Irom a full heart ; and especially when he is prostrated beloro ihu throne of mercy, and by his nearness ot ucces to tho Father of all, is prepared to feel, as he noxchcre else can feci, sense of the common brotherhood of man. If tho christian lias any wants or anxieties, his first im pulse will be to carry them tu his Heavenly fath er. Now let me ask your correspondent How often is tne case ot me tuiec millions ot slaves in our country borne upon the hearts of his "heartily anx ious" abuhliunistj, to Iho throne of tho heavenly grace 1 How often is the subject introduced by them into the monthly concert uf prayer ! How many prayer rooms ara there where there is a re membrance of those in bonds as though bound with them! The heathen on the other side of the Globe are monthly and daily remembered ; yet how sel dom, if at ail, are tho millions in our own country, heathenized by a revolting arid heaven daring sys tem of oppression, icmombeied with them 1 And then, how little of tho conversation which makes up the ordinary christian intercourse of the se"hear- lily anxious'' abolitiunists is employed upon this subject 1 The excesses, and ullruisuis of the Mur- rays and Garrisons can be talked about Ireely ; but when tho question is stalled have ivc not some thing to do lo help on the glorious work of emanci pation 1 it is answered by a sihnee that speaks vol umes of prudence and wisdom ! I have seen a gteat deal of this sort of "heartily anxious" abolitionism. There are, I am rejoiced to say, many exceptions; but I have yet to learn that thcie aro any of tho D. D's among them. 1 speak of them, because, al though few in number, they aro strong in influence. If Ihey are among tho "heartily anxious" abolition- sts, the public will doubtless know it. Tho hear ty anxieties of strong men cannot long remain con coaled especially on such a subject as this. This Ins been illustrated in Connecticut by Doctors Haws and Porter, who, a few months ago, headed a call by near fifty clergymen, of various denominat ions in that State, of a convention for the purpose of considering the duty of the churches in regard to slavery. The convention was very numerously at. tended, and among other proceedings, adopted an address tu the southern churches un that subject, which was drawn up by one of tho D. D's referred to. Now why will not the D. D's of Vermont fob low this example 1 I cannot tell your correspon dent how much it would rejoice my heart if they would. I do not know why they should be behind their Connecticut biethren on such a subject as this. How much are the zeal and energy of these strong menneeded to rouse to action the Vermont churches on this subject. And here I am drawn to consider ihe Saviour's test in another aspect. If individuals speak out what they strongly feel so do associations of men. Did your correspon Jent ever see a body of men im pressed with a strung common feeling, who did not find some way lo express it; What brings forth the thousand resolutions of religious, political and other meetings 1 It is strong feeling "hearty anx iety." Tho application of ibis, I need not make for the information of any who are familiar with the proceedings of the annual Congregational Conven tion, and of the lesser Congregational organizations, in l ermont, in regard to which truth compels me to say that, in reference to slavery, silenco is the rule, and christian rebuke of this great sin is the exception. Hut, "to a man," says your correspondent, "the clergy are all abolitionists, either by emancipatian or colonization." Here, then is the solution of the mystery. Abolitionists by colonization Your correspondent, if I am not mistaken as to who he is it would have been but fair if ho had given his name has preached and published a sermon upon this sort of abolitionism, which I should bo very glad if he would send mo; for I suppose he has there soUed the problem of "abolition by coloniza tion." I shall wait to see how ho has done it before I reply. If ho will aend me the sermon, I promise mat l will read and consider it attentively. In the mean time, I wish he would tell my how long it would take to empty a barrel by the spigot, while it is supplied to the full extent of the capacity of me uung noie. as iai as colonization can act ben- eficially upon Africa, 1 am in favor of it; but the i n I tin liainn .( ..... - I .
