THF- CoiiliAPSB OF CltTNOLINE.
No ono who promenades Broadway
now-a-days will doubt that the long
foretold "collapse of crinoline" has
at last como to pass. It is visible to
the most careless observer, and has
proof in our most fashionable ladies
as they "march along." The im?
mense circumference of skirt and
sweep of train that came in vogue a
dozen year? ago, and have been ex?
panding aud lengthening ever sirfce,
until recently, aro now things of tho
past. In their stead masculine eyes
are nov.- gratified by neat, trim dress?
es, at onco moderate in size, grace?
fully brief, and pre-eminently piqanl,

11. Bidders arc cautioned to mail their

ment by the day and hour named, (3 p. m.,
February 28, 1867;) for bids received after

tition with a bid of reasonable afhount re?
ceived in time. Neither can bids be consi?
dered which arc without the guarantee
required by law, and a certificate of tho
sufficiency of such guarantee.
12. Bidders should first propose for ser?
vico strictly according to tho advertise?
ment, and then, if they desire, separately
for different service; and if the regular hid
be the lowest off-red for the advertised
service, thc other propositions may be con?
13. There should be but ono route bid
for in a proposal. Consolidated or combi?
nation bids ["proposing one sum for two
or more routes"] are forbidden bylaw, and
cannot be considered.
14. The route, the service, the yearly
pay, the name and residence of ibo bidder,
[that is, his.usual pout office address,] and
those of each member of a linn when &
company offers, should be distinctly stated.
15. Bidders are requested to uso, as far
as practicable, the printed proposals fur
ni>ncd by the department, to write out in
full the sum of their bids, and to retain
copies of them.
Altered bids should not ho submitted;
nor should bids once submitted be with?
drawn. No withdrawal of a bidder or
guarantor will be. allowed unless tho with?
drawal is dated and received before tho
last day of receiving proposals.
Each bid must ho guaranteed by two re?
sponsible persons. The bid and guarantee
should be sigiwd plainly with tho full naino
of each person.
Tho department reserves the right to
reject any bid which may bo deemed ex?
travagant, and also to disregard tho bids
of failing contractors and bidders.
16. The bid should bo soaled, super?
scribed "Mail proposals, Stato of South
Carolina," addressed "Second Assistant
Postmaster General, Contract Office," and
sont by mail, not Ly or to an agent; and
fiostm'asters will not enclose proposals [ot
otters of any kind] in their quarterly re?
17. Tho contracts aro to bo executed ant
returned to tho Dopartmont by or horan
the Int day of July, 1807; hut the service
must be begu.i on that day, or on tho mai
day next after it, whether tho contracts bi

Transfors of contracts, or of interest ii
contracts, are forbidden by law, and con
Boquently cannot bo allowed. Bidders will
therefore, take nntic.o that they will bo ex
peeted to perform tho sor vice accepted ti
them through the whole tenn of tho con
18. Postmasters at offices on or near rail
roads, but moro than eighty rods from
station, ?iii, immediately after the 28th e
February next, report their exact distant
from the nearest station, and how they ar
otherwise supplied with the mail, to enabl
tho Postmaster-General to direct a mar
messenger supply from tho 1st of Jul
19. Soction eighteen of an Act of Cor
gress, approved March 3, 1845, provid.
that contracts for tho transportation of th
mail shall ho let, "in every case, to tho low
est bidder tendering sufficient guarantee
fur faithful performance, without otb.
reference to tho mode of Mich transport!
tion than tiiny be necessary to provide fi
tho due celerity, certainty and security c
such transportation." Under Ibis law, bi'
that propone to transport the mails wit
"ce erily, certainty and security" hf iv ii
been decided lo be thc only legal bids, are <.-/.
stetted as prov ding for tuc entire mail, hoi
ever targe, and whatever may be the mode

certainty and security," and h-ve tiw pr
ftrence over all oiliers, and \o others are co
20. A modification of a bid in any of i
essential terms is tantamount to a new bi
and cannot bo .received, so as lo int. rh
with regular competition, aller thu la
hour set for receiving bids. Making n m
bid, with guarantee and certificate, is il
only way to modify a previous hid.
21. Postulasteis are to he careful nf>t '
certify thc sufficiency of guarantors
BUretlCS wit bout knowing that they are pt
sons of sufficient responsibility; a dist
gard of thts instruction by postmasters is
violation of their <> dh ol office, sulgecti
them to immediate remoeat. All Lidd.-i
guarantors and sureties are distinctly no
tied that o:i a failure toe ter i:.t.o..r p<
form the contracts for thc service propos
for in the accepted bids, their legal hain
ties will be enforced again; t them.
22. Present contractors, and perso
known ai the Department, must, ? qua
with others, procure guaran? ro aim ocr
licat.es of their nu.tioi.-ncy suo.uaiiiialiy

cato of sufficiency must ho signed by a po
