be In the highest degree Indelicate, If not Im
proper. U take It out of Idi hand, If he
hap Ltcn guilty of mlcoBdOct laofflre,of
which tliere U no proof. Clearly the occu
pancy of the bench of the Circuit Court at
New Orleana by Aiwoclate Juitlco Bradley
at thli time would be equlralent to a cemure
upon the Dlitrlct Judge, aud a belief upon
the part of the Auoelate Jnitlce that the ac

nate to them In thU, that hi Judgment can
be ret lewod when brought up to the apMU
late tribunal In the mode and at the time
pointed out bylaw. The. statute, we think,
reqtlre an AiaOftUbi JuUr of, the Supreme
Court to Tlilt the circuit aulgncd to him once
to erery two year, 1 Jl J the practice of
the J tie to proceed to their circuit at
tha close of the winter terra of the Supreme
Court. It would be plainly Irregular, If they
had the right, (which a doubt,) to absent
tlienutelTeii from Washington on circuit btul
nesi dnilng the period deroted to the trial of
appeal. An Associate Justice of the Su
preme Court would not be warranted in gtv

Tie wa not appointed to the Bum
Court to perform, any such duty. The
latter court Is an appellate tribu
nal, while the circuit court Is one of ori
ginal Jurisdiction, to administer which there
Is special officer, known a the circuit
Judge. It I true that thij associate Justice
hill on circuit sit with th circuit Judg
and exercises, with him, original Jurisdic
tion, but tiiat is not m principal duty, and
litigant In the Supreme Court would hare a
right to complain If their rases were nag
lectoil on account of the absence of a mem
ber of the court for such it reason a mere
want of confidence In the district Judge.
We belle re that these are the Tlews held by

is no erldenre, so far, of the unfitness of the

The Postmaster General has decided that all
postmasters are liable to the Government for the
value of all registered letter lost In their offices.
Thli principle, which has been long maintained
with respect to minor omcca, ha never been ap
plied to offices where any considerable number
of letters have been registered. It Is now
claimed that the bonds of postmaster cover
such a case of Ins. Tbe deflnlle establishment
of such a principle win Tender the responsibility

only are reasonably possible, but the details may
be greatly varied. These general plans are:
1. To carry tbe main channel from the lower
end of Aoalostan Island, acros the flat above
the Long bridge, and below Kasbyl point Into
the email channel running along the Washington
front, at or near the In terser uon of the exten
sions of Seventeenth and C and D streets south
west, and thence continue along the present
front of ihe rlty until It Joini the deep channel
uf the river, Just below the srsrnsL
t. To har 1 he two channels forming the lists
above and below the Long bridge Into an Island.
Tbe main deep channel to remain along the tight
bank of the river down to Gravelly notnL tuit
below the Irng bridge, and thence to the deep
tbanncl off Uleeboro' point, The second and
smaller channel to run from a point Just below
Eashyl point, across the flat, with IU upper
edge touching the end of the wharf at Seven
teenth street, ft ashlngton, and thence along tbe
J resent Washington front until all the channels

and depth for all purposes; a direct continuation
of the river at Georgetown, to run along the
right bank of the river a far aa Oravelly point,
and thence directly towards Getsboro' potot on
the ten bank. Joining the deep channel of the
rtver at that point, following the present main
channel of the river.
tbb Ptinrr PLAN
doe not reclaim the Immense flat In front of the
city, this reclamation being an sbsolnte necessity
for sanitary as well as commercial purpose. Thl
flat would rapidly become an enormous msrth
opposite the city, and upon that side from which
the prevalent winds blow, especlslly In summer
and autumn. Tbe cost of excavation In thl
plan would equal that In either of the other,
and it cost for bulkheads would equal thai of the
third, but be less than that of the second. The
coat of filling np the remainder of the great
marshy flats, lying on th right ef the channel
thus made, to the right bank, (a filling necessary
for sanitary reasons,) wonhl greatly exceed tbe
cost of oiling in either of the other plans, and
the flats would be of oomparauvely no vain

by the commission. The depth of the water In
the harbor should be at least feet below mean
low water, and the main channels of the harbor
should be as near as possible along the main
channel now exlsUng, a thl give th moat di
rect and easy discharge of the river, especially
during heavy fresheu and breaking up of the Ice.
The channel should be of sufficient width to en
able tbe largest vessels to b moved about with
ease, free from danger of grounding, and 10 allow
the discharge of the heaviest fresheu with the
least damage to property.
