The U. S. Telegraph is out against those Assistant
Postmasters wlio have asked instructions of the post-
maMcr (r-neral respecting the course to Ik? pursued in
regard to the Incendiary Pamphlets; and against Amw
Kendall for his letter (published in our last paper) on
this subject. We think the Telegraph is clearly in the
wrong. It is not hgnlly competent to the Assistant
Postmasters to withhold the Mail; and it wus plainly
their duty to lay the matter before t!ii Post-M aster Ge

cdmitted, it would not be difficult to pervert :t to an in

hand, did the Post Office Department require and at

gentlemen, rep tiring t- Bud'iloe, there to render ho-!

and immense crowd of citizens, stimulated by the full I

of his auditory, and spoke for nearly two hours, in a
strain ef eloquence rarely equaled, perhaps never sur
passed, by the most master displays of his own great
genius. The sqteech had tho advantage of appearing
to Ik? wholly extemporaneous, ami the animation of the
speaker and his audiecne o -rating reciprocally upon
one another, kindled a flame of excitement altogether
unlike any thing which we ever contemplated in the
intensity of human feeling. It were impossible to trans

scene, and the most confirmative ability would tail in

eloquence which charmed the senses of the immense
