local matters. 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 : received. Forwarded. 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. From Argcsta.—The steamer Augusta, Capt. Lawler, arrived yesterday afternoon from Augusta, having on board a light cargo, and over two hundred contrabands. At 3a. m. yesterday passed steamer Amazon near Hagar Slager.

The Steamer General Derby.—This fine river steamer, under the charge of Capt. Henry, arrived yesterday flora Augusta. The General Berry was detained several hours, her pumps getting out of or der.

Departure op Steamers for New Yobe.—Yes terday the Atlantic Coast mail steamer Varuna was cleared for New Y’ork by John R. Wilder. The steamship Chase, of tho Pioneer Line, was also cleared by Messrs. Hunter 4 Gammell. Both of these steamers have very good cargoes. Personal.—Hon. E.

Chas. L. Colby A Cos., of the Baltimore sailing clipper Wenonah for New York. She has room for some light freight and superior passenger accommodations. ts 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 VILE. 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 much pleasure. “ ‘ 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. • I remain &c., John Hogg 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 day : 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 nation : “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 guished precursor. “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 facts. “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.

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." Tom continued: “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 about yet.” “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. . , Persons who think of emigrating to Ann Arundell county, Md., will please take notice.
