POST OFFICE REFORM.
The exhorbitant tarifl of charges estab
lished in the pcst-cfiice dcpartmcnt, its
slow and tardy moveineuts, and thc cnor
mous cxtent and abusc ofthe franking priv
ilegc have at Icngth arouscd the pcople
to the ncccssity and justicc of reform.
Petitions arc being signed, and scnt to
Cougress from evcry scction of thc coun
try. The tlepartment is ncarly baukrupt
from thc causcs to which we have alluded.
Private expresses upon all the great thor
oughfares of communicition have bccn
cstablished, through whicli the epistolary
correspondencc ofthe country is carried
on vastly cheaper and more expeditiously.
The prcsent system must bc abandoned for
onc which is cheaper, morc uniform, and
morc cxpcditious in its operations, and
from which the franking privilege is ex
cluded. But when the spirit of reform begins to
work, it is apt to be too hasty and indis
criminatc. The rcduction should takc
placc ort lcttcrs, the burdcn of transporting
whicli is scarccly nothing, whilc upon
;icwspapers and prinled matler with which
themails are overloadcd, the rates of pos
tage shouiii be increased at Icast so far as
to producc a jut cqualization bctwcen
the largcr and smaiitr publications. In
relation to newspapers the real difficulty
is, that postage is cntircly arbilrary and
not adjustcd lo the services rendered by
, r. ,
government, nor the bcnefit rcccived
