A Few Remarks and a Few Farts About
the Savannah Post Office.
Very few people have an opportunity to get any
insight into life among the mail hag*, except by
glimpses through small delivery windows, when the
mind is scarcely in a frame to contemplate the Post
Office interior, either perceptively or philosophically.
We were never Postmaster, nor Special Agent, nor
Post Office Clerk, but In a considerable newspaper
experience we have learned, from actual observa
tion, in sometimes Intimate relations, that with per
haps the trilling exception of an editorial room,
there are few harder positions ua. public life of any
kind, than a post office affords. The vexation of bad
penmanship, the annoyance of bores, the perversity
of some who wish to receive news and don’t, the Ig
norance ol such as can’t write and try to, the tedi
ous, wearing effects of night labor, are some of the
disagreeable features of post office and newspaper
mb In common.
The public will be glad of the appointment ot a
Postmaster in Savannah, because they have had so
many transitions as to render permanency In any re
lations la a degree satisfactory, and because all such
events are so much towards a resumption of their
old status. But while the present system of a special
agency continues, we do not believe a more popular
official could be placed in charge of the office than
Ur. A, L. Harris, always affable, genial, generous,
ready to oblige everybody, strictly obeying his or
ders, but never causing unnecessary annoyance.
The clerks in the office, also, so far as we have
been able to ascertain, are courteous In the discharge
of their duties, posted ou their details, and efficient
In all respects.
Their labors are nnnsually ardnous, vexatious and.in
ceesant, combining the difficulties of running a Post
Office for an army anu one for a city.
The following Is a statement of malls received and
forwarded from the Ist Inst, to last evening :
New York, 43 sacks .. .26 sacks
Charleston, 6 sacks 7 sacks
Florida, 8 sacks.: 7 sacks
Augusta, 18 sacks is sacks
Hilton Head IS sacks. 7 sacks
Mr. W. E. Warren, who forwards and receives the
malls, will in a few days hence bid farewell to Sa
vannah, but It is hoped, to return again. Mr. War
ren, by his kind obliging nature, has won friends
among all classes.
r Üb. W. H. Watson will leave Savannah to-day by
the steamer Helen for Augusta, having been or
dered to report there and assume hts functions of
office as Assessor of Internal Revenue for Fourth
District of Georgia. Mr. Watson has for several
months been serving as a clerk Iu the Post Office In
this city, and by kind and genial conduct has won a
high reputation. We have no doubt he will be pop
ular and efficient In the performance of the delicate
duties of his new office.

Population and Valuation of Boston.—r-
This city and immediate suburbs will show
by the census now being taken a population
of nearly four hundred thousand people, thus
making this metropolitan district of Boston
one of the greatest centres of population on
this continent. The valuation of Boston and
suburbs will nearly reach five hundred mil
l lions of dollars (the city alone having *370
000,000). Tbis.vast sum will place Boston
as the richest city per capita, probably, i n
the world. N. York has some *700.000, 1100
valuation; Philadelphia, *160,000,000 Balti
more *100,000,000. The entire State of Main
has but §100,000,000 valuation, or only one
fourth the part of this sity. The Eleventh
ward of Boston has nearly the same popula
tion as Portland, Maine, and is almost a city
itself, being in many respects a distinct
quarter. Since 1860 this ward has almost
sprung into existence. —Boston Post.

AUTHF.R DISCOVERT —THE SECOND SOURCE OT
The London Athenaeum says:
“ The exertions of Mr. Baker, whom Capt.
SrekeJeft at the Upper Nile, have been
cp'wned with a great success. We await
Jr. Baker's details with the warmest inter
et; in the meantime, we lav before our
radera the following letter of announcement:
“ Foreign Office, June 28, 18G5.
“ Sir : lam directed by Eail Russell to
aqqaint you, for the information of the Geo
gßphical Society, that two telegrams, dated
respectively 27th and 28th instant, have been
tils day received at the Foreign Office,
vtoich, though imperfectly transmitted, clear
ly convey the following intelligence, which
he Lordship has great pleasure in communi
citiug through you, without delay, to the
Siciety. Mr. Consul General Colquhoun re
pels trom Alexandria that letters dated the
lQh of May had been received from Khar
tqn, stating that Mr. Baker has succeeded
it discovering the second great source of the
Mle—second, not in importance, but only in
Older of discovery, to the Victoria Nyanza of
Speke. Mr. Consul Stanley, also from Alex
andria, speak 9 of the discovery as that of
“tbe second and main s turce of the Nile,
in Lake Albert Nyanza, North latitude two
degrees and seventeen minutes. Mr. Baker
was expected shortly to arrive at Alexandria.
“lam, &C-, E. Hammond.”
“On the same subject we have received
the following letter:
“ ‘Norton House, Stockton-on-Tees,>
July 3, 18C5. j
“ ‘ As I seldom see the Times here, I read
Mr. Hammond’s letter from the Foreign
Office of the 28th June (Which was publish
ed in the Globe of the 80th of June) with
“ ‘ That letter states that Mr. Baker, well
known for bis travels in Africa, and to whom
tbe Geographical Society last anniversary
awarded one of its prizes, “has succeeded in
.discovering the second great source of the
Nile—second, not in importance, but only in
order of discovery, to the Victoria Nyanza
of Speke-” Also that Mr. Stanley “ speaks
of the discovery as that of the second and
main source of the Nile in a lake (Albert
Nyanza) in north latitude 2 min. 17 deg.”
“ ’I consider, with Sir R. Murchison, that
this lake is most likely (nay almost for cer
tain) the little Luta Nzige of Speke and
Grant, and which Mr. Baker had undertaken
to visit and explore. To this discovery I
have Ifloked forward for some time; and it
affords, irr alt probability, a confirmation of
my views with regard to the additional
sources of the Nile.
“ 4 At the Newcastle meeting of the British
Association, held in August, 1863. I there
publicly said, “further explorations are ne
cessary to ascertain what (if any) waters join
that lake at the equator, which is called
Little Luta Nzige, meaning the Dead Locust,
with its salt islands, and supposed to be 1,000
or 1,200 feet lower than the Nyanza.’’ (See
the Memoir in Trans. R. S. Literature, vol.
viii, p. 75, published September, 1864.)
“ * Moreover, in January, 1864, I after
wards wrote (iu a note to tuc same memoir)
when meutiouing the Haruma falls in the
river which to the west towards
Lake Luta Nzige, and which Speke did not
investigate.” Speke and Giant having de
parted from the Nile at the Karuma falls,
and proceeded due north,they left unexplored
oue of tbe most important portions of that
river (which flows to the west); had they
followed its course they would, almost for
certain, have found that it is connected with
the waters of the Little Luta Nzige.
“ ‘ This lake is reported to extend through
fully two degrees of latitude, and although
Speke’s map incorrectly states it to be a
“backwater to the Nile,” I considered it to
be a frontwatsr of no inconsiderable dimen
sions to tbe White Nile.
“ ‘ Indeed, I believe this lake to be one of
those laid down in the Arabic map (about a.
and. 830) called “Tabula—Am amuniana; also in
that of Ibn Said in 1274, and in the “ Tabula
Rotunda Rogeriana” of 1154 —all of which
may be seen iu Lelewell’s atlas of “ Geo
graphic du Moyen Age.”
" ‘ I shall await Mr. Baker’s narrative of
his discoveries of this lake and the second
main soarce of the Nile with great and anx
ious plessure. •

LETTER FROM SIR RODERICK MURCHISON.
Sir Roderick Murchison has written the
following letter to the London Times in re
ference to Mr. Baker’s discovery of the second,
source of Nile, a full account of which was
published in our Fourth Edition of yester
11 To the Editor of the "Times ■
‘ Sir: Having, during the last few days,
met with many persons who have said that
they arc unable to form a clear conception of
the relations of the vast equatorial African
laKes—the Victoria of Speke and the Albert
of Baker—to each other and to tbe Nile, I
venture to offer the following brief expla
“Let the inquirer consult the map contain
ed in Speke’s book, and be will see at a
glance how the discovery of Raker has sub
stantially confirmed the views of his distin
“Speke places the Luta Nzige (now the
Albert) on his map as a great 9heet of water
ot which be had heard, and into which the
Nile, from tbe point where he was obliged to
quit it, descended by rapids, and then re-is
sued a little to tbe north to flow to Gondoko
ro. So strongly did he believe, from the de
scription of the natives, that such would be
foudn to be the case, that he incited his
friend Baker to endeavor to ascertain the
“Now, In everv essential point the researches of
Baker have rout) ruled the accuracy of the views of
Speake as regards the l.uta Nzige ; for the Nile,
leaving its first great and lofty reservoir, the Vic
toria, at a height of 3,740 feet above the sea, Is found
to descend 1,670 feet Into the deep rock-basin of the
Luta Nzige, or Albert Nvanza. which Is placed by
Baker at the elevation of 2,070 feet. Thence the
stream flows downwards and northwards to Oondo
koro, from which place to Khartum, where it Is
Joined by the Blue or Abyssinian Nile, It becomes, as
Is now well known, aperjectly navigable stream.
“The representations of -ancient geographers, as
seen ou old maps, of two streams Issuing from two
separate and unconnected lakes these streams uniting
fnrtUer north to form the Nile, Is proved to be erron
eous ; since we know now that, whether In the form
of lake or river the White Nile consists of one con
tinuous system, the waters of which descend In the
first Instance from a higher into a lower lake, and
thence Into the main stream, which in its course to
Gonnokoro and Khartum Is red by many other af
fluents. In short, the water system by which thes
lakcs of the Nile are first connected and then feed
the main stream, Is analagous to the connection be
tween the North American lakes and the Issue of
their waters into the St, Lawrence.
“I remain, sir, vour obedient servant,
“Roderick I. Murchison.

Tom is a qneer genius, and gets off some
tail ones occasionally. He visited us the
other day in our sanctum with a
“How do you do, old fellow ?
“Hallo, Tom," said we, “whore have you
Been so long ?”
“Why, Sir, I have been down on Severn
river, Anne .Arundel County, taking
Sbanghai-notes on the chills and fever. ”
“Ah, indeed,” said we, “are they very
bad down there?”
“Rather bad,” said Tom dryly. “There is
one place where they have been attempting
to build a brick house for eight weeks Well
the oilier day, as the hands were putting up
the bricks preparatory to finishing it, they
were taken with a chill, and shook the whole
building completely down, and kept on sha
king till the bricks were dust or the finest
quality. Just at this juncture, the chills
came on with renewed force, and they com
menced shaking up thh dust with such gusto
that they were entirely obscured for two
horns, and thrtpeople of the neighborhood
thought the sun was in an eclipse.
“Cant believe anything like that, Tom.”
“It is a tact,” said Tom, and resumed:
“There’s a farmer down there, who, in ap
ple-picking season, hauls his niggers out to
the orchard and sets one up against each
tree. In a short times the chill comes on,
and every apple in the orchard is shaken off
the trees on to the ground.”
“Incredible,” said we, holding our sides
with both bands.
“Fact,” said Tom, ‘they keep a man
along side ot each negro to take him away as
soon as the fruit is off, for tear he will shake
the tree down."
“Mr. S , a friend of mine, and a house
carpenter was engaged a few days ago in
covering the roof of a house with shingles.
Just as he was finishing, the chill came on,
and he shook every shingle off the roof.
Some of them are supposed to be flying
“Another gentleman near the same place
was taken with a chill the other day at din
ner, and shook his knife and fork down his
throat, besides breaking all the crockery
ware on the table. His little son, who was
sitting at the table at tbe same time, was
taken with a chill and shook all the buttons
off bis inexpressibles, and then shook him
self clear out of them.’’
We then prevailed upou Tom to desist,
who did so, with the understanding that he
was to give us the balance at some other
time. . ,
