1 Jl I 10UR0STfGE-Itis a duty which every man owes o principle to prepay the postage on his letters. A prepaid letter goes for ttree cents if not prepaid five cents-a difference of two-fifihs saved to he correspondents. Besides you can buy a dollar's worth of stamps and thus save the time and trouble of making change thirty-three different times to say nothing of standing in the sun before a window or in a dod- gery or in some other inconvenient place while a. dunce of a clerk is calculating the change and always taking the odds in his own favor. It is little less than a year since you had to pay ten cents on your letter -and six years ago you had to pay fifty cents for a letter and a decent envel- ope. Our people would now revolutionize the government before they would go back to the old system of paying twenty-five cents lor each piece of paper. Prepay your postage and the time will soon come when one cent prepaid will be the universal postage. No matter if you are writing your co...

GEN. HOUSTON AND THE BALTIMORE CONVENTION. We take trie following from a letter of Dr. Ashbel Smith to H. Stuart Esq. de- itor of the Galveston Civilian I can well imagine that you hope to be let off from hearing anything about the Baltimore Convention as you have enough on.this subject in your exchanges ; but I seem to be in for a long letter.
