ence to the weight of the mail, the condi?
tion of roads, hills, streams, .Vc., and all
toll bridges, ferries, or obstructions of any
kind by which expense may bc incurred.

11. Bidders arc cautioned to mail their
proposals in time to reach the Depart?
ment by the day and hour named. (3 p. m.,
February 28, 1807;) for bids received after
that time will not be considered in compe?
tition with a bid of reasonable amount re?
ceived in time. Neither can bids be consi?
dered which are without the guarantee
required by law, and a certificate ol' the
sufficiency of such guarantee.
12. Bidders should first propose for ser?
vice strictly according to thc advertise?
ment, and then, if they desire, separately
for different service; and if the regidor bid
bc the lowest offered 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 moro routes"'] are forbidden bylaw, and
cannot be considered.
14. The route, tho service, thc yearly
pay, tho name and resilience of tlve bidder,
[that is, his usual post office address,] and
those of each member of a firm where a
company offers, should bo distinctly stated.
15. Bidders aro requested to usc, as far
as practicable, the printed proposals fur?
nished by the department, to write out in
lull the sum of their bids, and to retain
I copies of them.
Altered bids should not bo submitted;
nor should bids once submitted lie with?
drawn. No withdrawal of a bidder or
guarantor will be allowed unless thc with?
drawal is dated and received before tho
last day of receiving proposals.
Each bid must be guaranteed by two re ?
sponsible persons. Thc bid and guarantee
should be signed plainly with tho full name
of each person.
The department reserves tho right to
reject any bid which may bc deemed ex?
travagant, ami also to disregard the bids
of failing contractors and bidders.
Ki. Thc bid should be sealed, super?
scribed "Mail proposals, State of South
Carolina," addressed "Second Assistant
Postmaster General, Contract Cilice.'' ami
sent by mail,.not by or to an agent; amt
postmasters will not enclose; proposals [er
letters of any kind ) in quarterly returns.
17. The contracts are to bo executed and
returned to the Department hy or before
thc 1st day of July, isr>7; but the service
must be begun on that elay, or on the mail
tiny next after it, whether the contracts bo
executed or not.
Transfers of contracts, or of interest in
contracts, arc forbidden by law, and con?
sequently cannot bo allowed. Bidders will,
therefore, tako notice that they will bc ex?
pected to perform the service accepted to
then, through the whole term of contract.
18. Post mast ors at offices on or near rail?
roads, but more than eighty rods from a
station, will, immediately alter the 28th e.f
February next, report their e xact distance
from tho nearest station, and how they aro
otherwise supplied with the mail, to enable
the Postmaster-General to direct a maii
nicssenger supply from 1st of Joly next.
1'.). Section eighteen e>f an Act eif Con?
gress, approved March 3, 1845, provides
that contracts for the transportation of the
mail shall be let, "in c. e-ry case, to tho low?
est bidder tendering sufficient guarantees
for faithful performance, without other
reference to the mode of such transporta?
tion than may be necessary to provide for
tho due cele rity, ce rtainty and security e>f
such transportation." Under this law, bids
that propose to transport the mails with
"celerity, certainty anti security" haring
been decided tn bettie un'y ?ojal bids, are con?
strued as providing for the entire mail, how?
ever large, and xchalevermay bc the mode oj
conveyance n cess ir;/ to insure its "celerity,
certainty and security," and hace, the pre?
ference oz?r till others, and no others are con?
20. A modification of a bid in any of its
essential te rms is tantamount to a new bid,
ami cannot be received, so as to interfere;
with regular competition, after tho lasl
henir set for receiving bids. Making a nevi
bid, with guarante e and certifie eu, is the
only way to modify a previous bi?;
21. Postmasters are to be careful not tc
certify the sufficiency of guarantors en
sureties without knowing that t hey are per?
sons of sufficient responsibility; a disre?
gard of this instruction I,y postmasters is c.
dotation if their oath of office, sulgectin*,
them to immediate rt mora'. All bidders
guarantors and sureties arc distinctly noti?
fied that on a failure to e ter into or per
form thc contracts for th' service propos?e
for in the accepted bids, their legal babiii
tics will be enforced against them.
22. Present contractors, and personi
known at thc Depart nient, must, equalh
wiiii others, procure guarantors and <. rti
licates of their sufficiency substantially n
the forms above prescribed. The ccrtifi
cute of sufficiency must be signed bv a post
master, or bv a judge of a court of record
I No other will bc admitted. The certilic.it
must also have affixed toit a five-cent rove
uno stamp, canceled, as required by law.
