finale" of tho Mercer expedition to
Oregon, in which several* hundred
N6w England young ladies went out
int? the wilderness, is reported l y a
Pacific correspondent to have Leon
the finding of a "lodge," by most of
them, with a man in it.
A lady recently advertised for em?
ployment as follows: "A yoting lady"
wisnes to "superintend a widower's
household, and would not object to
the supervision of a child."
Arch-deacon Dennison, of Eng?
land, advises a game of foot-ball

Mr. Prentice says radicalism and

We hope that prices will tumble

can never get up again.-Prentice.

Department to do so; for running an ex?
presa aa aforesaid, or for transporting
persons or packages conveying mailablo

s. The Postmaster-General maj- order an

ment that he prefers doing so to carrying

General may also discontinue or curtail

or, one month's extra pay on ?he amount
ol servi.-,, dispensed with, and a pro raia

il). Thc distances are given according to
the best information; but no increased pay
will be allowed should they be greater than
advertised, if the points to be supplied aro
correctly stated. Bidders 7nust inform
themselves on this point, and also in refer?
ence to the weight of the mail, the condi?
tion of roads, hills, streams, ?c., and all
toll bridges, ferries, or obstructions of any
kind by which expense may be incurred.
No claim for additional pay, based on such
ground, can be considered, nor.for alleged
mistakes or misapprehensions as to tho
deg-roo of service, nor for bridges destroyed,
ferries discontinued, or other obstructions
increasing distance, occurring during tho
contract term. Oflices established after
this advertisement is issued, and also
during tho contract term, are to be visited
without extra pay, if tho distance bo not
11. Bidders aro cautioned to mail their
proposals in time to reach tho Depart?
ment by the day and hour named, (3 p. m.,
February 23, 18G7;) for bids received after
that time will not bo considered in compe?
tition with a bid of reasonable amount re?
ceived in time. Neither can bids bo consi?
dered which are without the guarantee
required by law, and a certificate of tho
sufficiency of such guarantee.
12. Bidders should first propose for ser?
vice strictly according to tho advertise?
ment, and then, if they desire, separately .
for different aervice; and if the regular bid
bo thc lowest offered for the advertised
service, the other propositions may be con?
13. There should bo but ono routo bid
for in a proposal. Consolidated or combi?
nation bids ["proposing ono sum for two
or more routes"] are forbidden bylaw, and
caunot bo considered.
l-l. Thc route, the servico, che yearly
pay, the name and residence of thc bidder,
[thatis, bia usual post of!co address,] and
those of each member of i firm where a
company offers, should be distinctly stated.
15. Bidders are requested to uso, as far
as practicable, thc printed proposals fur?
nished by the department, to write out in
full the s"um of their bids, and to retain
copies of them.
Altered bids should not be submitted;
nor should bids once submitted be with?
drawn. No withdrawal of a bidder or
guarantor will be allowed unless the with?
drawal is dated and received before tho
last day of receiving proposals.
Each bid must be guaranteed by two re?
sponsible persona. The bid and guarantee
should bo signet plainly with tho full nanto
of each person.
Tho department reserves tho right to
reject any bid which may bo deemed ex?
travagant, and also to disregard tho bids
of failing contractors and bidders.
l?. Tho bid ahould bc sealed, super?
scribed "Mail proposals, State of South
Carolina," addreased "Second Assistant
Postmaster General, Contract Office," and
sent by ma il, not by or to an agent; and
postmasters will not enclose proposals [or
letters of any kind] in quarterly returns. |
17. The contracts are to be executed and
retnrtied to the Department by or before
the ls.' day of July, 1867; but the service
must bc begun on that day, oron the mail
day next after it. whether tho contracts be
executed or not.
Transfers of contracts, or of interest in
contracts, are forbidden by law, and con?
sequently cannot be allowed. Bidders will,
therefore, tako notice that they will bo ex?
pected to perform tho servico accepted to
them through the whole term of contract.
18. Postmasters at offices on or near rail?
roads, but more than eighty roils from a
station, will, immediately after the 28th of
February next, report their exact distance
from the nearest station, and bow they aro
otherwise supplied with tho mail, to enable
tho Poatmaater-Gencral to direct a mail
messenger supply from 1st of .July next.
19. Section eighteen of an Act of Con?
gress, approved March 3, 1845, provide?
that contracts for the transportation of the
mail shall be let, "in every case, to tho low?
est bidder tendering sufficient guarantees
for faithful performance, without other
reference to the mode of such tranaporta
tion than may be necessary to provide for
the duo celerity, certainty and security of
auch ranaportation." Under this law, bids
that propose to transport tho mails with
"celerity, certainty and security" having
been . culed to be (he only legal bids, are con
airued as providing for the entire mail, hmc
ecer large, and whatever may be ?he mode oj
couceyance n cess.try to insure its '^celerity,
certainly and security," and have the pre?
ference acer (. ll others, and no others <;>-c con?
2?. A modification of a bid in any of its
essential terms is tantamount to a new bid,
and cannot be received, so as to interfere
with regular competition, after the last
hour set for receiving bids. Making a new
bid, with guarantee and certificate, is the
only way to modify a previous bid.
21. Postmasters are to bo careful noL to
certify the sufficiency of guarantors or
sureties without knowing that they are per?
sons of sufficient responsibility; a disre?
gard of this instruction by postmasters ts a
dotation of their oath of ojficc, sulg'ecting
them to immediate removal. All bidders,
guarantors and sureties arc distinctly noti?
fied that on a failure to enter into or per?
form the contracts for the service proposed
for in the accepted bids, their legal liabili?
ties will bo enforced against them.
22. Present contractors, and persons
known at the Department, must, equally
with others, procure guarantors and certi?
ficates of their autficieiicy substantially in
tho forms above prescribed. The certifi?
cate of sufficiency mustbeaigned by a post?
master, or by a judge of a court of record.
No other will be admitted. The certificate
muat also have affixed toit a five-cent reve?
nue ?tamp, canceled, as required by law.
