Regulations respecling Post Offices, Mails, and Post Roads. Every Postmaster is required to keep an office, in which one or more persons shall attend on every day on which a mail shall arrive, loy land or water, as well as on other days, at such hours as the Postmaster General sbali direct; and it is the duty of the Postmaster, at all reasonable hours, on every day of the week, to deliver on demand, any letter, pa. per, or packet, to the person entitled in, or authorized-to receive the

All letters brought to any post office half an hour before the tinie of making up the mail, are forwarded therein, except at post offices, where, in the opinion of the Postmaster General, it requires more time for making up the mail, and which he shah accordingly prescribe ; but this, in no case, can exceed one hour.

No Postmaster or assistant Postmaster can act as agent for a lottery office, or under any colour of purchase or otherwise, vend lottery tickets; nor can any Postmaster receive free of postage, or frank, lottery schemes, circulars, or tickets, The penalty for a violation of this provision of the law is fifty dollars.

THE JUDICIARY. The Judiciary power of the United States is vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as Congress, from time to time establish. The present judicial establishment of the United States consists of a Supreme Court, of thirty-one District Courts, and seven Circuit Courts, which are thus organized : the Supreme Court is composed of one Chief Justice and six Associate Justices, who hold a court in the City of Washington, annually ;, besides which, each of these Justices attends a certain

circuit, comprising two or more districts, appropriated to each, and, together with the Judge of the district, compose a Circuit Court, which is holden in each district of the circuit. The District Courts are held respectively by the District Judge alone. Appeals are allowed from the District to the Circuit Court, and from the Circuit to the Supreme Court; and, in some cases, where the inconvenience of attendiog a court by a Justice of the Supreme Court is very great, the District Courts are invested with Circuit Court powers. Each State is one district, for the purpose of holding District' and Circuit Courts therein, with the exception of New-York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Tennessee, Louisiana, and Alabama, each of which is divided into two districts. There are, besides,

Territorial courts, which are temporary, and lose that character whenever a Territory becomes a State. In addition to the District Court for the District of Columbia, there is a Circuit Court for that District, which exercises, under the authority of Congress, similar conmon law and

equity jurisdiction as the county courts of Maryland and Virginia. Each court has a clerk, a public attorney or prosecutor, and a marshal, all of whom are appointed by the Executive of the United States, with the exception of the clerks, who are appointed by the courts. The compensa tion of the judges are fixed by law ; that of the clerks, attorneys, and marshals, consists of fees, and, in a few instances, as it regards attorneys and marshals, of a yearly salary of about $200.

By an aet of Congress of the 15th of May, 1820, District Attorneys are to be a ppointed for four years only, removable at pleasure. Marshals have always held their offices for four years, removable at pleasure, in pursuance of the 27th section of the act of the 24th of September, 1789.

The Judges bold their offices during good behaviour, and can only be removed on impeachment. The appointments are made by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate.

THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES. The Supreme Court of the United States has exclusive jurisdiction of all controversies of a civil nature, where a State is a party, except between a State and its citizens; and except, also, betweeu a State and citizens of other States, or aliens, in which latter case it has original, but not exclusive jurisdiction--and has exclusively all such jurisdiction of suits or' proceedings against ambassadors, or other public ministers, or their domestics, or domestic servants, as a court of law can have or exercise consistently with the law of nations—and original, but not exclusive jurisdiction of all suits brought by ambassadors, or other public ministers, or in which a consul or vice consul shall be a party. The Supreme Court

has also appellate jurisdiction from the Circuit Courts and courts of the several States, in certain cases ; and has power to issue writs of prohibi.
