We have fora long time been aware that some
of the country postmasters take unwarrantable
liberties with the newspapers directed to their
offices. 'These papers they often loan out to
their friends, or suffer to be read about their offi
ces bv careless persons so that when the sub
iirtbtiscall for them they are not unfrequently
"lost, torn or abused.’* Postmasters permit
ting this should nut only remember that they are
violating the laws and subjecting themselves to a
penally, but that they are doir g a great wrong to
editors ot newspapers and defrauding the sub
layers. In the 30th section of the act of Con
gress approved March 3. 182 ', reducing into one
the several acts establishing and regulating the
Post Office Department, it is provided that “if
any person employed in any department of the
Post Office shall improperly detain, delay, em
bezzle or destroy any newspaper &c. he shall
forfeit a-»um not exceeding fifiy dollars for
every such nff-nce”—And in the “ Instructions
♦o Postmasters,” issued from the General Post
Office page 30 we read-»* You will not allow
new spapers to be read in your office by persons
to whom they are not addressed, nor lend them
•nt to such, in any case, without the permission
of the owners.” If any Postmaster therefore,
has heretofore been guilty of what we now charge
upon some, and pleads ignorance of the law and
his duties, we trust he will bear in mind that af
ter reading this article, his conscience can now
no longer acquit him.
We have half a mind to make a personal ap
plicstion of this matter to a country Post Mas
V. not a hundred miles from this place to whose
office our paper is directed and whole conduct id
the premises is seriouly complained of by gen
tlemen having business with it. We sre inform
ed that sometimes there, when papers called for
by the subscribers, a messenger scours part of
the county to collect and return them to their
owners! If this Postmaster and others like him
had their deserts, they would be reported to the.
Postmaster General and the fine imposed by law
inflicted and collected to the last farthing.
We have for some time past, observed a dis
guised and concealed movement at Richmond, to
defeat the re-election of Mr. Tyler to the Se
nate. Occasionally a communication appears in
the Enquirer, calculated to excite suspicion as
lb Mr. Tyler’s fidelity to “ the party”—and now
and then, it is gravely asserted through the same
channel that the times are so much out of joint that
such a man as Mr. Randolph is sadly wanted in
the Senate! We now learn somewhat to our sur
prise, 'that it is the design of some to use Mr.
P. P. Barbour, to effect Mr. Tyler’s removal.—
We do not believe that Judge Barbour will con
sent that his name should be employed on the oc
casion. At auy rate, we are sure he ought not
to permit it. Mr. Tyler is an able and indus
trious representative of his native state and we
should be sorry to see him supplanted through
party intrigue. Indeed we. look forward with
confidence to the return of Mr. Tyler by the Le
gislature. —
We have not room to record the accounts of
all the public meetings that are held in favor of
the President’s Proclamation. The North, East
and West seem to be unanimous, and we are
told no where is enthusiasm greater on the sub

pression of opinion there, is decided and une
quivocal. —

• It gives us pain to state that it is reported at
Washington, on the authority of letters from
Pittsburg, that Mr. Justice Baldwin, of the Su
preme Court, had become insane, and was con
fined in an II ospital. It was feared from the
manner of the attack, and the symptoms, that
it would prove a case of confirmed and incurable
lunacy. -
i Tlie Washington Correspondent of the Bilti
more Gazette states that, “ among the private
bills which passed the Sennteon the 30th ultimo,
was one for changing the surname of Captain
Finch, of the Navy, to Bolton. It was reported
some time ago that this gentleman, w ho is now
in England, had become heir to an Earldom and
an immense estate; and the fact that he has
changed his name to that of a noble family m

Entrance of the French Army into Belgium.
The New York Courier of Saturday has re
ceived Paris papers to the 15ih November, and
Bordeaux of the 17th, brought by the brig Mary
i Jane, which tailed from Rochelle on the 20th of
The entrance of the French army into Belgium
! it thus announced:
Paris, Nov. 15.
The Moniteur contains the following:-—Con
formably to the convention concluded on the
22d October last, between France and England,
the army of the North, und**r the orders of Mar
shal Gerard, has passed the frontier this day,
the 15th November, directing its inarch on tiie
Citadel of Antwerp, to ensure the delivery of
it, to H. M. the King of the Belgians.
The 15th was the day fixed by the Convention
between England and France, which y* thus far
strictly executed. Three small divisions of the
English and French fleet sailed for the coast of
Holland on the 10th and 11th November. The
two Admirals, with the greater part of the squad
ron, remained at Deal.
It appears that much uncertainty prevails in
France in regard to the part which Prussia will
act. It appears certain that the latter power ha9
collected an at my on the Rhine and Belgian fron
tier. By some it is supposed she will take pos
session of Venlo, which has been allotted by the
Conference to Holland, and is now in possession
of the Belgians. By others more important
views are attributed to Prussia. A Paris paper
of the 15th contains the following:
o A person of respectability, who left the
head quarters of the Frea.-h army on Friday eve
ning and who had an opportunity of frequently
conversing with Marshal Geraru, relates to us j
that the commander of the French Army spoke i
! openly of the probability of a conflict with Prus- j
sia, in consequences of the entrance of Ids ar
| my into Belgium. It appears that the Marsha)
: has instructions with a view to an engagement
I with the Prussian*, and that a olau of camnui'rn
has been laid down in cased tlieir interference.’*
Upon which the editor observes, »* This para
graph furnishes a key to the arrangement* made
on those points of our frontier adjoining Prussia,
and to (he rapidity with which many regiments
am inarching thither. It is said chat three corps
ot observation will be simultaneously formed —
j Due on the Meuse, the other on the Moselle, and
I the third on the,Rhine. Gen. Pelet who will cer
tainly have the command of the division of the
Meuse, will have Colonel Moline as head of his
general staff.”
We need not point out to our readers the high
ly important consequences which would inevita
j bly result from the intervention of Prussia in fa
vor of Holland.
The Belgian Legislative Chambers commenc
ed their session on the }4th Nov. The following
i- King Leopold’s Speech:
BELGIAN CHAMBER— Speech of the King.*
I Gkntlemrn—The four months which have
j elapsed since thj* close of the last session have
I seen the accomplishment of many events impur
i lanf to the future fate of this country.
IMgium has been successively recognized by
the. powers of Europe; und the national flag ad
mined in most of the foreign ports.
Mv onion with the eldest daughter of the King
of tiie French, in.drawing closer our ties with a
genetous ffeople has presented to me a new op
portunity to receive from most of the courts of
Europe, proofs of their friendship and of their
good wishes for the welfare and consolidation of
the new stale of Belgium.
After long delays, less injurious however to
the interests of the country, than might be appie
headed, the moment is at last arrived, when I
; can comply with the wishes of the Chambers and
the • Nation, by leading the powers who were
guraiitees of the treaty of 15th November, to en
sure its execution. Those poWrs, having ac
quired the certainty that in longer abstaining
from adopting coercive measures, they would
plate Belgium, in the absolute necessity of doing
herself justice, were unwilling to incur the risk
of a general war. United by a formal conven
: lion, two of them, have engaged to begin the exe
cution ot the treaty, by the immediate evacua
tion of our territory. The fleets of France and
England will letter the rommerce of Holland,
and it these means of coercion are not sufficient,

! troubling the peace of Europe, to prove tint the
guarantees given, n'e not vain words,
i Such are gentlemen the Iruils of the policy
followed until now by government With confi
deuce I shall submit to your examination the ne
gocialions which haie brought about this result.
; The solution of the principal difficulties which
' impeded the progress of government, will premit
! U9 gentleman, to occupy ourselves mme exclu
sively with those administrative and financial
ameliorations, which the interest of ihe country
The organization of the judicial power has
completed the political constitution of the State,
! and placed on a defensive basis, the independence
! of the magistrates.
| At the same time that the budgets of the year
18S3 will be presented totnu, the accouirts of
1830 and 1831 will be placed before jou.
The second part of the loan which you have
authorised has been contracted for, oil advanta
geous terms, taking circumstances imo conside
ration. These circumstances, which are com
mon to almost all the countries of Europe, have
caused Belgium an excess of expense, which
j must be met by an excess of burthens. The
country will submit to tfiese necessary sacrifices
with resignation, when it looks around and calls
to mind that at no epoch has it existed, notwith
standing the importance of events, under a sys
tem of imposts so moderate and so mild.
If the execution of the treaty hv the powers
should prevent our young and brilliant army from
signalizing its valor, its devotion guarantees that
io the course of events now preparing, the viola
tion of our territory by th** enemy, or any other
art of aggression against Belgium, will uot past
with impunity.
The interests of this army are the object of my
livelv solicitude. It isdifficult as yet to fix the
epoch ol a disarmament now become more proba
ble The project of a law for “the organization
of the army in time of peace, will however be
presented to you.
fHere follow soo>e observations on the inter
oaf government of the country J
We are on the eve of great events, gentlemen.
The evacuation of our territory, will contribute
to confirm public confidence. But y»U will re
collect with pain that Belgium entire, has not
been adopted by Europe. When the day of se
paration "shall come we shall not forget those po
pulations which have associated themselves with
so much devotion to our cause.^ They do not
cease to occupy mv thoughts. They deserve to
engage those o! the nation ”
The dates from Amsterdam are of the 10th
November They too speak of the movements
of the Prussian armv, but consider their object
is principally to watch the movements of the
French and not engage in actual hostilities unless
they should exceed the limits laid down for them
by the Loudon Conference.
A letter written from on hoard a Dutch gun

Flour—A fair business lias been done in

$5,68c. at which price holders are firm, it has
risen gradually cent bv cent every day, and
should the present mild weather continue and
the navigation remain open, the probability is
that it will continue to advance in price.
Grain—Barley continues about the same as
Ia9t quoted—large quantities ot New York

materially effected our market.
In other grains we have no alteration to note.
