'X% are requested by tbe Postmaster Genera io call attention to the followiu* regulations in regard to postage on letters to foreign Coun tries : In the Mail to Great Britain the single rat< of postage is 24 cents, prepayment optional. Oa e.th^a letter or packet ot any we«bt the whole postage or none at all should be prepaid If anv thing less than the whole is prepaid no account istakeu ot i , and it is entirely losi to the sender. The British Post Office declines to change this rule, exc pt on conditions con sidered inadmissible. In the Prussian closed Mail to Germany 3C cents is the single rate, prepayment optional This pays from any part of the United State? to any part of tbe German-Austrian Postal Uni on. A prepayment of any sum less than the regular rate of 30 cents is not recognised, and is of course lost to the sender. A note of frac tions of the rate could not be taken without se riously complicating the accounts, besides caus ing much additional labor and trouble at the exchange offices. But, contrary to the practice under the United States and British Postal Con vention, in the Prussian mail every lull rate of 30 cents is credited, whether the whole postage on a letter or packet is prepaid or not, leaving any balance due to be collected at the office of delivery. By tbe Bremen Mail the rule is the same as under Prussian arrangement. The single rate to Bremen is 10 cents, to Oldenburg 12, to Hamburg 15, to Altona and Hanover 21, and to any other place in Germany 22 cents, prepay ment optional. In either case a prepayment of any traction of the lull rate goes for nothing. The rule tor rating letters to all foreign coun tries (except the Briush North American Pro vinces) is IO charge one mte lor half an ounce or under, two rates ir the weight is over one half and not exceeding an ounce, lour rates it over one and not exceeding two ounces, six rates if over two and not exceeding three oun ces and >o on. charging two rales *or cvery ounce or fractional part of an ounce over the first ouoce. As this rule ditfeis from that fol lowed in respect to domestic letters, where each half ounce or fraction of a half ounce counts as one rate only, Postmasters who are not care ful to observe this difference are liable of course to commit mistakes.—Nat.

The Richmond Kxaminer a few days ago expressed the belie! that emigration from Kast ern Virginia would henceforth cease, except as it may be induced by temporary causes. It now learns that a very full tide is now llowing out of Western Virginia. Here is a phenom enon which invites reflection.
