Did you not, when Lieutenant Randolph last

to a certain Mr Dibble, (one ol the canal con

Mercer for defrauding the establishment,) for the
special purpose of avoiding the payment to Lieu
tenant Randolph of his s«id commissions? This,
too. induced by the known circumstances of your
having been Timberlake** security to the Go ern

Richmond, Dec. 7, 1833.
We insert, from the Baltimore Gazette, an
abstract, or summary, of the leading features of
this document:
The annual amount of the transportation of
the mail on ihe 1st July, 1833, wav 26,854.485
miles—of which the amount of 18.322,576 was
in steamboats and stages, a'-d 8.531.909 on
horseback and in sulkies. The whole amount,
as may b«» supposed, i« distributed among the
afferent slates and territories, very nearly or
quire in proportion to their respective population.
The whole length of mad route in Ihe United
States amounts now to 119,916 miles, which is
apportioned in tike manner.
The number »f post Offices in the L . States on
the 1st Julv. 1832. whs 10,12..
The increase of the annual transportation of
the mad within the four vears ending the 30th
June, 1853, is 13.154.185 mile*, nearly equal to
toe whole amount of transportation in 1821).
The increase of (he annual amount of postage*
within the same period, is $909,119 85, and the
who'e amount is more than the double of what it
was in 1825.
The avenge expense of transporting the mad
in 1829, was'eight cents and four-tenths of a
cent per mile. It is now 7 cents 57-100, mak
ing a difference for the whole service equal tu
$222,892 22 per vear less, in proporticn to the
service performed, than the expense of traospor
tation in 1829, besides a great increase in expe
dition between the principal commercial cities,
and a much greater proportion of the whole per
formed ill stages.
The method in which the accounts of the ex
penves of transporting the mail have always been
kept in this department, has led to a misappre
hensinn of *he means ol extending improvement!
in mad facilities It appears, from the earliest
records of the department, to have been a rule
not to enter to the credit of a contractor nor tr

L K.,1 d hiv contract and returned them tc
the deptrmient with proper security, though ttu
service may have been regular! v performed, and
in many instances, the monevs actually paid.—
It has sonietim-s happened that contracts of the
greatest magnitude have, from various causes,
remained for more than a year unreMirned. In
surh cases, though the expenses have been incur
red thev do not appear in the transportation ac
count, and though the moneys may have been
p.i.l to the contractors, they stand on »he books
a-* balances to that amount due from them to the
depvrtment, constituting a part of the surplus
fund: when, in fart, they constitute a part ol
the actual expense incurred for the transpoita
tiort of the mail. The consequence has been,
that the expenses tor transporting the mail within
anv given period of time, as shown tn the ac
c»unt>-. and reported annually through the Kxe
COMV-. have been always calculated to exhibit an
amount considerably less than what has actually
b tn incurred. This is an imperf. cion, n >t <d
recen* <gin. t>ut one whi. h appears to have been
conn'-nt with the department. When the
number of contracts was few, and the surplus re
venue b>re a large ratio to its whole annual
amount, the effect was unimportant; but in the
increased number of mail routes, and the dimi
nution of its surplus revenue, it was calculated
to produce serious inconvenience. From the
statements growing out of this system, thus illu
sory in their results, together with the great ex
pen'se of carrying into effect the law of the last
Congress establishing new mail routes, and a dis
position to gratify the wishes of the public in this
improvement of mad facilities, I was led to car
ry those improvements to an extent which it was
found the resources *4 the department would not
well sustain. When the inconvenience was felt,
the cause was carefully investigated, and the fol
lowing result ,\ as disclosed Prompt dtrectious
were given for the correction of the error in fu
ture. It i* not possible to determine, to an ex
act certainty, the whole expense incurred for
transportation ’-vlthin anv recent period: berause
it will often happen that improvements will be
come necessary. even for the fulfilment of exist
ing laws, and expense* of which, for want of
uroper evidences. m«n» be reserved for subse
ouent adjustment, and we come into the account
for a later period than that in which the services
were performed. But these variations are of an
inconsiderable amount compared with the diner
eoces resulting from the system heretofore ob
“onthe 50th of June, 1829, which was the close
of the first quarter in which I had assumed the
tunotions of the department, the expense, which
had been incurred for transporting the mail "ere
264.248 786 more thau the amount stated in my
"oJ'lhVotT/of jolj. 1833, the f/'0"!**,
my last report reaches, there was stated to be a
surplus of available funds, after defraying all
the expenses of the department up
It is. however, now ascertained,
that the expenses incurred for
transportation which had ac
tually been performed prior to
the iat July, 1832. beyond
the amount stated in that re
port, were 2f)5-6;’6 07
So that instead of a surplus on
that day, the department was
actually indebted on the 1st
day of July, 1832, beyond the
whole amount of its available
funds, admitting that no loss
es of postages should be sus
tained, 2.844 <
The Receipts and Expenditures of the Depart
ment for the year ending the 30th June, 183.3,
are as follows:
Gross amount of postage for the
vear 22.616.538 27
Expenditures 2,803,683 31
Leaving a deficit of ^ 192,13^ 04
And this sum paid into the Trea
sury by irregular deposites,
having been placed by the re
ceiving officer to the credit of
0 » department instead of this 228 69

ment on the 1st July, 1882,
as above stated, 2,844 67

The annual expense of trans*
• porting the mail under exist
ing contracts, with all their
provements, is 82,123,289 42
The nett revenue for the cur
rent year is 2,037,410 81
Leaving a deficit of 885,878 61
) The former method of keeping the accounts of
the expenses of transpor'ation would have left
out of this report expenses for transportation, as
if they had not been incurred, because not en
1 tered under their proper dates, the sum of 891,
558 82. This, had the method been continued,
! would have made the Department appear less in
debted by that amount than il reallv is
To meet the present state of things, a w’ith
drawal of improvements has been made on such
i routes as would beat bear if, to an amount mak
' ing an annual retrenchment in the expenses of
1 the Department of 8274.263 00.
After the reductions shall 'ake effect, the an
. noal transportation of the mad will still be 25.

The annexed letter from Paris, of October

tance, first of all by its audacity, and secondly, by
there beingaffixed to it the signatures of two I)upu
ties of the Lower Chamber, who have been hitherto
not considered as attached to the old and anar
chic-republican parl y of 1793. These gentlemen
are M. Audry de Puyraveau and M. Voyer d’
A'gensoii The paraquet, or crown lawyers,
yesterday recommended their arrest, and it was
expected to have taken place last night; but the
Government has hesitated to strike a blow which
would have excited much agitation, and might
have proved the signal for some disorder.
l’he manifesto of the Society of the Right* of
Man, whit-n was published yesterday, Ihe 22d.
in the Tribune, and which bears the signature of
the two aged and respectable deputies, announ
ces that the republican party are determined io
remain no longer in the ba< k ground or in se
■ cr**t; ihat it comes forward accordingly with its
' piofesiiion of principles, and sets out with assert
ing the imperative necessity of the people’s reco
vering instantly their sovereignty. To effect
this the society announces that it has formed a
permanent committee (the above deputies are
j members thereof), “ for the purpose of recruit
ing all round it, and propagating its doctrines
every where ”
The saiil doctrines it represents as identical
with those “developed to the National Conven
tion by Robespierre,’’ and enumerates under the
old heads of equality, fraternity, universal suf
frag**, progressive impost, a single legislative as
sembly, “a central power, (so it designates the
Executive,) elective, temporary, and responsi
ble.” Last of all, it insists on a republican “ fe
deration of Europe.”
To such a mad project, and such a declaration,
all Paris is surprised to find the names of M.
Voyer d’Argenson and M. Audry de Puyraveau
attached, since neither were considered to have
passed the bounds of constitutional opposition —
No doubt a considerable number of eminent men,
M. de Latavette amongst the rest, have quarrel
led irrevocably with Louis Philippe, and form
what is called the anti-dynasty opposition.—
Their flag, however, has been the constitution of
the United Srates, with two Chambers, and in
short a republic, as the old party of the Federal
ists imagined.
Such a party as this, consisting of men of ta
ent and character, might in time h“ P ,j |
langerous enemies to the house 01 <0rrle"*» |
t alone have occupied the ground of rePobl'can ;
'pinion. But. to render all such “ch'roe9I

even Lafayette and his friends will be able to
support the disgrace. That in the P,e9e” . 1
of day men of years and fortune shou d
ward to re proclaim, not merely the repub « '“f
Washington or of Condorcet, but that of Robe
pierre and Marat, is beyond conception, unless
it be considered a. done with the.ntrntonof
damning for ever the name of republic in trance. (
But M d’Argenson and M. de Puyraveau are
perfectly serious- The former is a mao equ y
furious as susceptible: engaged in the conspira
cies which menaced the throne of the late Bour
bans, he was obliged to fly to England oo one oc
casion. and his flight rather injured •“» rePuta*
tion for courage and constancy. Since *be rRV
lution the Lafayettes have not satisfied his van -
tv, and hence he has flung himself ,0,Te^_
amongst the anarchisls of the resuscitated Moun
tain M. de Puyraveau has more legitimate
cause, if private motives could give such, in the
persecution which tie has suffered.
If the Government institutes prosecution, it
will prove the master-marvel for the lime. It is
difficult to say whether it ought or ought not to
do so.
The States General assembled at the Hague
on the 2lst of October. The speech of the King
refers, of course, as the principal matter of pub
lic interest, to the long protracted dispute with
Belgium, and the course the negotiations have ta
ken. The controversy is yet unsettled, but the
prospects of its termination are more promising,
apparently, than they were last spring. The
King’s speech was followed by a historical sketch
of the coorse of the negotiations during the last
year, by the Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs.
By a convention of .May last between the Nether
lands and France and Great Britain, the Courts
of Austria, Prussia and Russia were invited to
co operate. Minister, were sent to London by
Holland—various propositions were presented,
ami after some weeks of discussion, as the Minis
, ter verv innocently says—•• me uegouauuu
naturally at the point at which it had been dis
continued I” Afterwards—
“ The Government purposely gave the prefer
ence to the very impartial project proposed at the
time by Austria, Pru*9ia, and Russia, its obvious
tendency being to reconcile Hie different opinions
and claims; and keeping in view the desire which
had been expressed to give in estimates, the Gov
ernment considered that no more unambiguous
pledge could be given of its spirit of concession
than by its acceding to this proposal.”
Again, towards the close ofliis speech, the Min
ister savs:—
j I have now reason to announce to your High
Mightinesses that within these few clays a pros
pect has opened, not only of the settlement of the
points in question (the garrison of Maestricht and
the navigation ot the Meuse,) but also of the suc
cessful result of the endeavors to come to a gen
eral arrangement
A mission from their Majesties the Emperors
of Austria and Russia and the King of Prussia to
the King brars so decidedly the stamp of their
sincere friendship and real interest, that His Ma
jestyhasnot hesitated immediately to replv *o it
with unlimited confidence on his part; and if the
i happy presage* do not fail this tune, we may ex
pect to -ee at length a satisfactory com 1 jsion of
, the efforts and delineations with which the Govern
ment ha* conducted this difficult negotiation.
Were I permitted to follow my inclination, 1
might perhaps conclude my address with some
observations calculated to throw a light on the
political embarrassments of our part of the world,
and their influence on the foreign relations of our
country; b**t there are circumstances which are
rendered worse by being made the subject uf re
J mark. Who, then, will be • > presumptuous ss to
attempt to draw aside a veil which will not bear
i to be touched, and which it may bu salutary to
: respect? and how can I forget that this t* one of

Meantime, according to the Brussel* paper*,
which are alv* to the 2lst October, their military
preparations are kept up, and the best feelings do
not exist on the lines. Thus—
»• A letter from Antwerp of October 25, says
— *• The intcriourse between Antwerp and Hol
land daily becomes more difficult. On our side on
one can pa»9 the Belgian posts without a permis
sion from the administrator of public safety, aud
on the other not without a special permission of
the Prince of Orange.
“ Accounts direct from Maestricht tell us to
state that there have been no further disorders
since the insubordination of some Cuirassiers.—
The change uf the garrison is still spoken of; it
seem*, at least, certain that the Duke of Sate
Weimar will take the command in the room of
General D'bbets ”
The late«t advices from Constantinople are to
the 25th of September, at which time the affairs
of Turkey continued in temporary tranquility.—
*• The late treaty between Turkey and Russia,
(says a corre*pondent of the London 'Tunes at
Constantinople) and especially the supplementa ‘
rv article, has exposed the policy of Russia, and,
as it is now stated, will prevent the departure of 1
the Biiiish and French fleets from the Arcliipela-1
go during the winter. The closure of the pas- i
sage of the Dardanelles by the Turks themsel ves
against all foreign slops of war. upon the sim .
•pie requisition ol the Czar, is sufficient to prove .
tnat it is the intention that Turkey shooid, at his j
convenience, tie up her hands and legs. In order |
to be immolated with ease; yet the selfishness of i
the acts of Ru*»ia, and her numberless intrigues,
do that crafty Cabinet much more injury than all
her diplomatic opponents. It was to serve her
purpose that the Greeks first revolted against
Mahmoud; it was Russian scheming that in a high •
degree roused the sympathy of the Germans, and
other western nations, in favor of the decendants
of Miltiades and Solon. Yet so opposed has the
policy of Capo dTstriasand other Russian agents
been to freedom and civilization in Greece, that
Russia and her plans are hated by that people as
their worst enemy. It is so also in this country;
Russia lords here, and her commands are execu
ted without good will by the Turks, although the
Sultan and his favorite, Achmet Pacha, whose
ipeedy departure a» ambassador to St. Peters
,urg is again spoken of, may ently lean
to lhat quarter. The tricks m» ot practised

London, October 28.— It i* said that within

continent have amounted to not less than £700,

of the foreign exchanges, and there acems to be

end proposed
State or Thade.— London, Oct. 28.—The
general a-pect of the manufactures of the coun
try is that of steady progress; unlike a period
of unna'ural excitement, the advances are more
slow, and promise a greater degree of perma
nence. At Nottingham the lace trade is advan
cing, both by the simplification of the machine
ry.and by the introduction of Steam power, whilst
the number of hands employed in getting up the
manufactured article occupies an additional quan
tity of women and children. This branch of
our manufactures promises to increase greatly
in extent, under judicious management and the
increased demand from the East Indies will
probably give it an additional stimulus.
A certain degree of jealousy is felt at the ex
portation of machinery, and association* are
burned for inforcing thfe existing laws which
prevent it.
At Sheffield the demand for goods is consider
able, and besides the conversion of Swedish
iron info steel, a gradual inereasing quantity of
the best British iron is annually used for that pur
In the clothing districts of Yorkshire tho
same activity prevails in alt departments.
The sound and wholesome atate of our manu
factures is, perhaps, more clearly perceived in
the advancing price of iron, which i* so largely
connumed in machinery and buildings, and j
•till more in the great and constant demand,
not merely for machinery itself, but for tools ;
with which it if repaired and made.
The onlv drawback amidst the general itn- j
provement arises from the unfortunate difference I
between the workmen and their employers. A j
•vstem of unions has spread widely, and is work
ing to the serious injury of both men and mas
lars. At Sheffield, where ihe manufactured n
tides-contain but a small quantity of raw mi
terials wrought intu form by alargequantity of mi
' oual dcitentv. the effects are tno»t injurious, not
so much be ttie actual strikes, as by the perpeta.
I al state of uncertainty in which the capitalist*
are kept, and the loss to the country is consul
erable. At Leeds the conduct of the union has
at last compelled the manufacturers to unite to
gether to attempt to put them down, and what
ever may be the result of a struggle, all must
regret the temporary misery it will n.lhct.—
The statements of both paities are expressed in
general terms, but it is much to be desired that i
