We would direct the attention of our readers to the adrettisenient in another column of the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York, and congratulate those desirous of effecting insurance on their lives upon the decision of jthis popular institution to establish an agency in this city.

The great security presented by this company, from its unequaled capital, and the made known to as, of its doing business only upon the cash principle, should, in our judgment, secure to it a large business in the community for in the event of a wide spread and fatal epidemic, it will thereby hare the gold to discharge its policies, instead of an accumulation of various and irresponsible notes. Abtosxmkrts Last Evening St. Charles. The tragedy of 14 Pbilip Augustus," a translation from the French, was represented last evening at the St Charles, Miss Dean playing the part of Marie, with Mr. Lynne aa the King of France.

The concluding scenes were magnificent, and were magnificently rendered. We cannot avoid expressing a wish, however, which we know to be general, that Miss Dean will once more appear in" the part of Constance before her departure. It is a favorite play with us, and is well adapted to the genius of Miss Dean. Plaeide's Varieties. M'lle Lola drew another fine house last evening at the Varieties.

There was, as we anticipated, a much larger number of 'ladies present than on the evening previous, all of whom seemed highly pleased. The gentlemen were prepared with bouquets, and dispensed them liberally to the fine actress. We understand that the beet seats are all engaged beforehand, and it therefore behooves those who wish to witness the play in of the most eminent actress who has aoneared for manv vears. to secure their seats in time.

The, Incoming Administration and the Cula Question. The Washington correspondent of the Courier and Enquirer, in noticing the Senate debate on the Cuba question, and particularly the speeches of Senators Mason and Cass, remarks that the positions taken by the Senators are, under present circ*mstances, significant indi eating as they do that the incoming Administration will negotiate Cuba into the Union as a State or Territory, if it can be accomplished without too' many hazards or sacrifices.

Arkansas and Lealsiaqa. The Memphis Eagle speaks in glowing lan guage of the beneficial effect upon the growth of Arkansas, which is to be produced by the passage of the internal improvement bill now before the Legislature of the State. The bill proposes to require the division of the fund derived front the lands donated to the State bv Conrre among four main lines of railroads. One of these is the road from the Missouri line through Little Rock to the Louisiana line, to connect St Louis with New Orleans through a branch of the New Orleans and Opelonsas road. This subject deeply Interests the people of Louisiana, and they will be glad to hear that Arkansas has embarked earnestly in these works.

There is no State la the West than Arkansas for fertility and all the resources Tor sustaining a large population and. a great commerce bat her want of internal communication, and the long line of swamp frontier on the Mississippi have turned the discouraged emigrant into other directions and kept the State poor and thinly settled. The adoption of a system of railroads will soon throw open her rich lands to the hardy cultivator and bring her up rapidly abreast of her western neighbors in the march of power and wealth. To this the great progress made in an incredi bly abort time, in reclaiming her swamp lands have given an extraordinary impetus. We find it stated in Gov.

lloane's recent message that more than four millions of acres of laud, of the richest kind, heretofore annually submerged. have already been reclaimed by the partial levee ing the State has undergone. It was anticipated that by this date the river line of the three coun ties of Mississippi, Critteudeu and Phillips would be completed, and an immense additional quantity of land added to the resources and productive capital of that State. Completing this system, the dreaded swamps will soon become the Seat of a high cultivation, teem with planters, and furnish a position on the Mississippi river as attractive to the industrious settler as it is now impenetrable and repulsive. The example of what has been done and is doing in Arkansas, should urge on the application of the same fund in this State with a similar enenrv.

United in their interests ny contiguity, similar physical features, and like wants in different degrees, Louisiana and Arkansas will, it is hoped, act harmoniously in their saystems of improvements, aud in forwarding by joint exer tions the grand scheme of so much consequence to both, of the railroad beyond the Mississippi. That subject has seized so much on the public mind in Missouri, Arkansas, and Western Louisiana, that we hope ere long to be able to chron icle some effective cooperation here to give it consistency and help. Gov. Foote, of Mississippi, has published a card vindicating his right to appoint a Senator in Congress, after the 4th of March next, when the term of Mr. Brooke will expire.

Gov. Foote was, himself, the predecessor of Mr. Brooke, and resigned his seat to canvas the State for Governor. The Legislature, by a combination of Union Whigs and Democrats chose Mr. Brooke for the unexpired term.

But the Senate, both at the regular session last winter and the recent extra session, refused to go into an election for the full term, preferring that the choice should be made by the new Legislature to be elected in Novem ber next Governor does not claim the power to appoint a Senator now, to take the place ol Mr. Brooke in March, but has announced his inten tion to make such an appointment as soon as the vacancy occurs, and has put forth this argument in support of his right under the constitution, to do so. The position of the Governor is that a State Executive has the right, under the constitution, to make temporary appointments to the Senate to fill all vacancies which occur during the recess of the Legislature, and have not been provided for by the Legislature itself; and that it makes no difference whether the vacancies have arisen by the regular expiration of a term of service or hare been caused by resignation, death, or any unforeseen eveut The only limitation is that the vacancy shall have occurred, in fact, before the appointment is made. This view has been controverted and will be opposed in the Senate strongly. During the late debate on the case of Dixon, from Kentucky, 6ome strong opinions were expressed against the right of an Executive to make appointments, when the Legislatures have designedly or with full notice left vacant The precedents which Gov.

Foote's industry has collected are, however, in favor of the right of appointment He has found in the journals of the Senate hve cases wherein senators nave been admitted to take their seats on Executive appointment, at the commencement of a full term, the Legislature having adjourned without electing. They are those of co*cke, of Teunes. see, in 1787; Tracy.of Connecticut, 4th of March, 1801 Hindman, of Maryland, 5th of March, 1301 Anderson, of Tennessee and Samuel Smith, of Maryland, March 4, ISt'. These are parallel cases. That of Lanman, of Connecticut, to which we have formerly refer red iu connection with this claim by Gov.

Foote, was not that of an appointment to an existing vacancy. The Governor of Connecticut appointed Mr. Lanman before his term expired, to fill the seat about to become vacant' Gov. Foole will only appoint after the 4tb of March. There is no precedent for the rejection of a Senator under these circ*mstances a fact which goes to strengthen the opinion that Gov.

Foote's nominee will stand a good chance to be received, and to hold his seat until the Legislature to be elected shall choose a successor. Texas Itkjis. By the arrival of the steamship Texas, Capt Lawless, we have received Gal veston papers to the 31st ult, one day later than those brought bj the Mexico. The following is from the News On Tuesday evening last Dr. Grant, whose residence is near Washington, on the Brazos, was shot in Houston by Mr.

Anselem Hudson, who was acting as bar keeper in the Houston House. Dr. Grant died instantly after receiving the second shot in his body. The particulars are thus related to us bv a gentleman who was there at the time. A difficulty had existed between the parties for some time previous, and Dr.

Grant is reported to have threatened to cowhide Mr. Hud son, wnicn Having come to nis Knowledge, Mr. H. on hearing of Dr. Grant's arrival, went to see him, and they met in the Old Capitol.

After some words, Dr. Grant drew a pistol and shot at Hudson, the ball passing through the skirt of his coat Hudson immediately turned and ran some distance till he had time to draw his pistol, when be turned and shot Dr. Grant in the leg, Dr. G. making a second shot about the same time, without effect.

Dr. Grant then shot the third time, the ball striking Hudson's finger, but Hudson's second sbot was then made, the ball passing through Dr. Grant's body, causing his death almost instantly. Hudson forthwith surrendered himself to the sheriff, by whom he was taken into custody. Our information is that Hudson is a young man of respectable family, and came into Texas but a few months since.

Gen. Mirabeau B. Lamar, ex President of Texas, arrived in Galveston on the 31st ult, in good health. The Supreme Court, at the late Austin term, decided the law of the last Legislature, authorizing the writ of certiorari to issue from justice's courts to be unconstitutional.

Hill named ch. g. Wade Hampton. The first and last of the above enti ies were colts of old Boston. The bets, up to the time of starting, were ninety to one hundred and even on Wade Hampton against the field.

The friends of the other horses took some bets with and some without odds on their pets against Wade, but the latter was evidently the favorite. First Heat. At the given signal, all the horses got off well together, Hampton having the inside with Louis D'Or next him. Up to the first quar ter Wade was well engaged opening a gap which the gray colt tried to lessen. Louis D'Or suc ceeded in getting last and staid there through tne run.

Fusing the stand the colt made a push at Wade, which the latter laughed at and without trouble frustrated. They ran very prettily around the distance and came in with Louis D'Or last It was said by the knowing that the bay was lay ing off for Wade to try his mettle with the gray colt but the gray could nt push him hard enough to be of any count The betting was very slight before the second heat, Wade Hampton being beyond odds. There were one or two, however, of ten to thirty on Wade against the field for the heat There was also something done by the backers of Louis D'Or and the gray colt even on the beat dec Second Heat. Time being called, the nags came up apparently as fresh as if they had not run. The placing, of course, followed the last heat.

At the first tap Louis D'Or made a rush by the colt and for a few lengths held Wade. The latter, however, shook him off in some very pretty running, and at the end of the first quarter was clearly ahead. The gray then challenged and passed Louis D'Or, went up to Wade at the stand and passed 'him. But the victory was of short duration, Wade winning back the lead in not more than four or five lengths. Louis Or then came up and at the beginning of the last quarter had passed the gray.

The run home was pretty but not very quick. By the carelessness of Louis Or's rider, the heat was made a dead one be. tween him and the colt. The following is the summary Fibst Day Tuesday, Jan. 4, 1853 Louisiana Course, New Orleans; Proprietor's Purse 300; two mile heats.

New Orleans, Jan. 4, ISRS. Meter. Editor? Until the rail mad a now Seine cxrattruet' ed are completed, tbe country and the city are compelled to oepeuo war intercourse exclusively upon eteampoec naviga tion for the transmission of leitrrs a well as the convey sore of freight and passenger. The planters of the interior, corresponding with the trader and merchants ln tbe city.

nave mcaeurauiy no oioer mesne 01 communication man tbe steamboats offer tnem. Tbe advices downward cargoes and orders for upward shipments thus passing between town and country, being contained in the letters on board those steamboat, reouire not only nromot deliverv. but fre queutlt Immediate reply. When lorced by a post office agent Into bis office, and there subjected to the office resu latioos, the utility of those letters are lessened, and their vaiue tons name 10 total oeatrurtion. xnoae letter, thus taken by tbe agent of tbe post office, may not reach the trader or the merchant until tbe office opens for delivery the ensuing day, and then too late to execute the orders.

Bach occurrences are not unfrequent. The post office sgent be conies accustomed to sweep all letters into his office re lating to cargo" or not, unless some special letters. In care 01 toe cier 01 tne ooac, woo would pay tne postage on them. This system, adopted in tbe Southwest alone, (I be lieve.) was an inlorv to commerce much more than the mere postal coargea The law allowin ore paid stamp was bailed with nlea sure as a deliveraace. aud that tbe oost office axent's oower could only deface Ibeae stamps on his visit on board tbe steamboats, oy restamplog paid 00 tbem, and allow tbe free passage of such letters.

Bat. ob I tbe disaDPotntment. The section of an old law, enacted prior to tbe present wide usefulness of steamboats, was brought into existence and adopted in tbe 8 oath west, but not New York and other Easter port The same custom was enforced to sweep tbe letters into tbe post office, and there have the marked way one rent on letters witb tbe prepaid stamps. ana way six cents on letrers witnool prepaid stamp let ten, sucb sis relate to the cargo," could not be discrimi nsted all were eouallv liable. Tbe commencing section of tbe act of 3d March, 151, to reduce tbe rate of postage, appeared to me conclusive to render sucb way charge Illegal.

Tbe reading seemed so pjain as 10 surprise me now it could ne misunderstood. Thus, ln lien of the present ratesof postage established by law, there shall be established the following rate." And no mention in toe act 01 way on cent or way six cents. In order to have a prompt decision on the law, I insti toted an amicable suit. I considered tbe law plain and po sitive. Tbe question was a goed by John H.

Van Ralson. who sppeared for me aa counsel, against tbe Hon. E. A. Bradford, wbo appeared f.

tbe postmaster. In tla absence of CoL Huntuu. tbe United States District Attorney Tbe argument of Mr. Bradford, and tbe final decUinn of tne court, appeared more burdened wlitt tue orders from toe Depart oieutt nan tne law. orders, sucb ss tbose from official! in the present age, are losing the force which the edicts carried with tbem In tbe time of Justinian.

Orders In military life on tbe field, disciohue reoulres rieid snd strict obedience 1 but in tbe jurisprudence of th model democratic nation, and among civilians, the law alone should be their standard. I therefore applied to the representative In Congress from mis otaie ior a correct reaoing 01 tne law, or a correcting amendment by Congress Tbe Hon. A. G. Penn promptlv responded to this appeal in behalf of Louisiana.

He is too much alive to the interests of tbe Southwest to neglect anything which would promote tbe prosperity of its Great Emporium. He at once embraced tbe common sense meaning of the law, and considered it sufficient without amendment. He did not cease hi efforts until the object was accomplished, snd or oera irom toe im pan ment in accordance were obtained. Annexed herewith ia the letter of the Hon. A G.

Ine result is that you have beeu sua tslned in your position by tbe Fostrosster General, aa yon will find satisfactorily explained in the letter of the First Assistant, a copy of which I send yon herewith.

i CCopy.J Post Office Department, Appoint ment Office, Dec 3, 18M. Sir In August last a letter waa addreased to you from this office, in relation to a complaint made to tbe Depart ment by Mr. 8. W. Oakey, through tbe Hon.

Messrs Moore and Penn, of yoor charge of "one cent way" ou steamboat letters, and in reply to the inquiry, as to your construction of the law under which yon acted, yon referred to the goth of tbe act of the 3d March, IMS, ss containing authority to Justify you in making tbe charges complained ol Tbe let ter referred to waa written by tbe Acting First Assistant Postmaster General, during my temporary absence from tne Department, sndj had not the opportunity oT inveatigatiBg the matter antil recently, when it was again submitted by tbe Hon. Mr. Penn. Before bringing the subject to tbe attention of tbe Postmaster General, I examined the section referred to by yon, aa well a tbe subsequent act of Congress bearing upon the question. Looking to the sotb section alone, I admit that tbe practice pursued In your office would seem to conform atrictly to tbe requirements of said section but taking into consideration the bearing of a late act, and, a it appears to me, tbe plain intent and meaning it conveys, I conceive that your practice of charging tb additional cent will sot only continue to be complained of but is obviously in opposition to tbe tew.

The charge on way letters, as provided far by the aoth section of the act of 1SS5, evidently refers to way letters on isna routes, sod not to tnose conveyed by steam bests. The IStb section of th act of 1M6, provide that the require orients of tbe 6th section of tbe act of 1 sag snail be strlct'v complied with, so for as the delivery of all letter conveyed been tbey been conveyed In tb maiL Tbs obi act of this letter law was. wbst waa not provided for by the 6th amionof tbs act of via ii 10 oe rnarged over river route hence, if the letter directed to r.
