were wanted to ratify the amendment,

ExecuTIYi DFPARTM.NT, S. C.,
Columbia, May 8, 1866.
Sit: I have received informnation
from the Post Offico Departmunt that
orders have been issued to discontinuo
the delivery of mails, at an early day, at
all Ofices in the State where there are
no regularly appointed and commission
ed postmasters. This order will subject
the press and the business community
to very serious embarrassment, unless
steps are promptly taken to procure the
services, at each post office, of such per.
sons as ciin take the requisite oath as
prescribed by Congress. I therefoje
recommend that some person be selected
at each office who can take the oath and
give bond. The petition may be ad
dressed to me, at Columbia, or to B. B.
Vassal, Esq., Special,Ageiit of the Post
Offico-Department, at Coluinbia, where
they will be endorsed and promptly for
Sa -ded to tho Appointment OMCe at
