With tills icdiiction tliq system would .still

lished , taken to. 'ether , the loc.il postage uv-
ceeds Its maintenance by 'nearly SlrlW.OJ. ) .
The limit to which tuis system is now eon-
lined by law has been nearly reacavd , and the
reasonsgiven justitv u.s extension , whicii is
proposed. It was decided with ipy uppioba-
lion , after a siilllcient i-.xamiuation , to be in-
exedlent ) fur tlm postolllcu department to
contract lor carrying our foreign mails under
tlm uddltloiial mitliority given by thu last
congress. Tliu amount limited was inade-
ipi.ue tu pay all within the purview of the
law , the mil rate ol'5J cents per mile , aud it
would havu been unjust ; and unwise
to have given It to. .spmo nnd de
nied it to .others ; ' nor could

It. Tliu ratu of sea and inland postage , which
was protlered under another statute , clearly
appears to be a lair compensation for ( he du
nned bcivlce , beinir three times tlio price
necessary to sjeure transportation by other
vessels upon nny route , nnd much beyond
thu charges made to piiviitu persons lor

postmaster general to attempt by thu me.ins

priated us an extra compensation , withdrew
tliu fiervlces of their ves-els , and thereby
occasioned slight inconvenience , tlnm.li no
considerable Injury. Tap mails have" been
dispatched by oilier means.Vhatoer may
be thought of thu policy of subsidizing unv
line of public coineynncu or travel , 1 am sut-
i.sued that it should not bo done undercover
of an expenditure incident to tlm administra
tion of n department , nor should there bu
any uncertainty as to the lecipicntsofthu
btiosidy or any discretion lett to an exec-utivu
ollicer as to its distribution. It such gittsof
public money are to bn mmle for the purpose
ol aiding any enterprise in tlm supposed in

the amount to be paid and thu beneiiclary

Among the plans tmgcsicd for relief Is one
