The New postage stamp.

We saw, last evening, the first impressions, from the lithographic stone, of the new five-cent postage stamp for the Confederate States of America. The likeness of President Davis is admirable, and the lines of the engraving are so perfect as to closely resemble steel plate. We were agreeably surprised at the excellence of the work, as well as the neatness of the design. This new stamp will be colored green. We are informed that a quantity will be ready for delivery about the middle of next week.
