Seven minutes arc allowed to each inter mediate office, when not otherwise specified, for openiug anil examining the mails. % No pay will l>e made for trips n#t perform ed; aud for each of such omissions, not sal i8factonly explained, three limes the pay of the trip may b# deducted. f\>r arrivals so far behind tune as to break connection with depending mails, and not sufficiently excus ed, one fourth of the compensation for the trip is subject to forfeiture. Fines will be imposed,unless the delinquen cy be promptly and satisfactorily explained by certificates of postmasters or the affidavits of other credible persons, for failing to ar rive in contract ttme; for neglecting to tako the mail from, or deliver it into a postofhee; for suffering it to be wet, injured, destroyed, robbed or lost. The Postmaster General may annul the contract for repeated failures to run agrees bly to contract; for violating the posiofflee laws, or disobeying the instructions of the department; for refusing to discharge a car rier when requested by the department to do so; for assigning the contract without the assent of the Postmaster General; or for transporting persons or packages conveying mailable matter out of the mail. The Postmaster General may order an in crease of service on & Toute by allowing therefor a pro rata increase on the contract pay. He may change schedules of depart ures and arrivals in all cases, and particular ly to make then» conform to connections with railroads, without increase of pay, provided the running time be not abridged. The Postmaster General may also discontinue or curtail the service, in whole or in part, in order to place on the route a greater de gree of service, or whenever the public in terests, in his judgment, shall require such discontinuance or curtailment for any other cause ; be allowing as full indemnity to con tractor one month's extra pay on the amount of service dispensed with, and a pro rata oompensatien for the amoimt of service re tamed and continued. Payments will be made for the service by collections from or drafts on postmasters, or otherwise, al ter the expiration of each quar tor—say in November. February, May, and August. The distances are given' according to the best information: but no increase of pay will be allowed iJiould they be greater than advertised, if the points to be supplied be correctly stated. Bidders must inform them selves on this point. Bidders arc requested use, as far as practicable, the printed form of proj>osal furnished by the department, 16, write out in full the sum of their bids, and to retain cop ies of them. Each bid must be guaranteed by ifo re sponsible persons. Tlie bid should l>e scaled, superscribed "Mail Proposals, Territory of Idaho," ad dressed " Second Assis*jmt Postmaster Gen eral, Contract Office," and sent by mail, not by or to an agent; and postmasters will not inclose proposals (or letters of any kind) in their quarterly returns.

I ""l roprictor to be executed and re turned to the department by or before,the 1st of July, 1870; but the service must Ik; begun on that day, or on the next mail day thereafter, whether the contract* be executed or not Transfers of contracts, or of inter ests in contracts, are forbidden by law, and consequently cannot be allowed. Bidders will therefore take notice that they will be required to perform the service accepted to them through the wholo term of the con tract. Section eighteen of an act ofcCongress ap proved March 3,1845,provides that contracts for the transportation of the mails shall be let, " in every case, to the lowest bidder tendering sufficient guarantees for faithful performance, without other reference to the mode of such transportation than may l»e necessary to provide lor the due celerity,cer tainty aDdsecurity of such transportation." Under this law,bids that propose to transport the mail with 'celerity,certaintv,and securi ty,'' having been decided to be tho only legal bi<ls, are construed as providing for the tire mail, however large, and whatever may be the mode of conveyance necessary to in sure it* "celerity, certainty, and security and no others will be considered. Except in the case of railroad and steamboat routes. bids naming any particular mod « of convey ance are invariably rejected. A modificati jn of a bid in any of its essen tial terms is tantamount to a new bid, and cannot be received, so as to interfere with a regular competition, after the last hour set for receiving bids. Making a new hid, with guarantee and certificate, is the only way to modify a previous bid. Postmasters are to be careful not to certify to the sufflc ; ency of guarantors or sureties without knowing that they are persons of sufficient responsibility; a disregard of this instruction by postmasters is a (violation of their oath of office, subjecting them to diate removal. All bidders, guarantors, and sureties are distinctly notified that on a fail perform the contracts lor proposed for in cepted bids, their legal liabilities will be forced against them. Present contractors, and persons known at the department, must equally with others, procure guarantors and certificates of their sufficiency substantially in the forms above prescribed. The certificate of sufficiency must be signed by a postmaster, or by a judge of a of record; no other will be admitted. JNO. A J.
