The 3 been unsuccessfully made too beforo in tho interests of a news opoly which may bo desirable despotic form of government, n a republic, should be Imtitled an anti-edu oject, or one for tho suppres jrmation among the people, as the diminution of postal reve government. There are now thousand newspapers m the ates [and territories of the tes, with an average circulation c ipies each. The rate of postage on these has been fixed by law at thirty-five cents a quarter for dailies and five cents for weeklies, to be paid in ad vance by the subs:ribers at the offices of delivery. Allowing three fourlhs of this number to be weeklies, the revenue derived to the department frwn newspaper circulation alone would reach between live and six millions of dollars annually, a very considerable portion of which would be cut off by the amendment proposed. Every newspaper man understands the difficulties in tin- way of starting a daily or weekly journal, and working it up to a paying circulation in these days. It re quires ten times the capital it did thirty years agp, and it may be safely said that two-thirds of the newspapers in the United States are still struggling to get them selves up to a paying basis. With all these the prepayment of l e.tage upon exchanges would be an ad ditional hardship which they could ill af ford lo bear. The provincial journals re ceive as a general thing from fifty to sixty exchanges, mostly confined to their own states, while they circulate from one thou sand to fifteen hundred papers through the mails. The meager benefit they derive from receiving their exchanges free of charge through the mails, is a very small return for the advantages extended by them to the postal department, to say nothing of the public. And these provincial journals are among the best educational expedients to which the government can resort to foster intelligence and virtue among the people. They give the most desirable in formation that can ba imparted—that of the more immediate neighborhoods and communities in which they are pub lished—and their moral tone is generally higher and more healthful than that of the metropolitan press. They arc, in fact, the great educators of the people, and without tliein public intelligence and virtue would lack one of their chief incentives. This proposition, which originally came from the metropolitan press, is designed to cripple the immediate organs of the people, and force a circulation which shall be entirely independent of the communities in which they are read, and with scarcely a tie of interest in common between publisher and reader. It is a mean and petty device to cripple local journalism, and the effect of it will be to diminish revenue to the department. The Richmond papers might all well afford to pay postage on their exchanges ; but how would it affect the local journalism of the State? i The throne of Portugal is not a very comfortable seat just at present. In view of the manifest certainty that public opin ion would favor such a course, it is not improbable that a movement will soon be made either toward the accomplishment of an Iberian I'nion, or the establishment of a Portuguese Republic. The former is regarded as the most desirable, and we may, therefore, ere long see Spain and Portugal united under a republican form of government. It is decidedly encourag ing to witness these effete and useless monarchical establishments dropping one after another out of view, and we imagine ■ the events of the past few days will cause fear and trembling on other thrones than that of Portugal. Monarchy must begin to "hedge" for power in Europe, or the despotic principle in government will be played out. General Morales, in Cuba, has been threatening in most grandiloquent Spanish bombast to shoot O'Kelly, a Her ald correspondent, as a spy, if he persisted in his efforts to examine into the condition of things on the island. The Herald, in return, threatens, in peculiar Heraldic bombast, to annihilate Spanish rule in Cuba, to rouse a mighty people to uncon trolable indignation, to send an army of in vincible reporters with ink-loaded blun derbusses to bespatter all the purple and fine linen of Madrid, if one hair of its commissioner, as it calls tho O'Kelly, is touched by Morales. At last accounts the war was raging and nobody was hurt. Butler bluntly declared before the Credit Mobilier investigating committee the other day that he had performed legal services for the Union Pacific Company and had received therefor a fee of $."> 1 000 together with $1,000 for traveling expenses. He hinted pretty plainly that it was no body's business and that he should do so again if called upon. He also vindicated Carpenter against the chargo of having received a fee from the company without services rendered. He said he had recom mended Carpenter to the company as an able attorney, but it had had no occasion to' employ him. There is a bill before the Illinois legis lature prescribing the rights and responsi bilities of married women. It provides that where a married woman engaged in any kind of business on her own account, the husband shall not be held responsible for any debt contracted by her in the course of her business, but that her indi vidual estate, real and personal, alone shall be subject to execution and sale for her debts. This is transferring the boot to tho other foot. We can imagine circum stances under which this little shoe would pinch. Colonel O'Ferrall made a neat and pointed little speech yesterday in the House, personally explanative of his own position and that of the Governor, on the question of the State debt. The only dif ference between th«m seems to be that Colonel O'Ferrall was only about twelve months ahead of His Excellency in his ad vanced ideas on this financial question. Hut the misfortune is that twelve months ] ago the position was regarded as one of re pudiation, while now it is deemed, at the Kxecutive Mansion, the only way to avoid it. The whirligig of time brings strange changes sometimes, and often spins out new ideas entirely coincident with old I ones CI I WILL FAY rORS COPIES OF THE \<P J 1 SEMI-WEEKLY STATE JOURNAL JL I " I .
