Of arrivals and departures, and their runuing titae. And
they main 'in their hat d. the power to contrcl or dr
faat proper set oiules of service both on their roans and
otheia connected with them.
' To to'erate such a course, is to invito p*rp'tual con'u
st’an, misionnccuocs, drliys atid fsilurts ot the mails,
and to pi .co it in the power of a s:ngle company to in

let an it j ured public litid the means, if it can, of com

propt r in tbis connec ion to say, that, even at the reduc

country under the recent act ot Congress, they receijc a
higner ratool comprusalioc than the railroads of any
other country fcr similar aervico, except the railroads ol

* * Tue r.diror.d service was designed to be tjsily,
and it was hoped, with proper schedules aDd speed, iLia
would unswer the public wants. But the Department

gat them conformed to, alter being adopted, as to get |
(teui udop.ed in the hist instance.
lu the meantime, IDe railroads have been, necessarily,
much occupied in transporting soldiers, and supplies, at d
munitions ol war, which has maternity interfered with
the regularity of the mails. And the War Department
au.l army olticer* have frequently directed military sern d
e oi to tat ruu by the roads, in conflict with the schedules
ot the Department.

MAILSIILI RATTSR SOT TO II* CARRIF.il AS TRKIORT.
The Government bae been vested with crrtaiu func
lions which it was believed cculd be d:a .hsrged with
greater bent lit to tbe public by it than by private enter
prise.
Among these was tbe establishment and manrgemeu!
of our system of postal communicition, which is so ne
eeiiury in conducting the civ.l administration of the
Government, and in military anl naval affiira, and of so
itiorlcul »ble importance to tbe public as a means of con
veying intoli gence. Our theory is that tbe Government
must provide the machinery of this Department and
conduct its operatin'!.*, but at tborxpruse of those who
make use of its laciiitics. That i*. that this Drpirtmeo1
shall be self-sustaining. To m»ki it eo, and to make Its
revenues secure, and their accrual steady aud reliable,
we declare Utters, sealed packages, newspapers, period,
cals, pamphlets, Ac., to bs mailable matter, aud ask
their tracstnissiou along the poet-roads otherwise tha
through the mails unlawful. The Government having
been charged with the heavy exp use of affording
postal facilities to the conntrv, it (ally justified hr
reason and necessity in adopting this means o'
makiug itself tbe cxeludvo carrier of certai •
clashes of matter at fixed and revocable rat.s
cf c jrupeusation, to reimburse lint expense. And it
the governmentshrul i be nquired to carry tbe u»w.pe
per and periodical mail in the spars-’ly settled pOrliors
of the country, where the matter to be carried is too Itmi
ted to justify express or other private companies in do
ing it, and where it can only he done by tbe Department
at a loss of its revenues, and if, at the same time, it shal
allow this ilsss of mail matter to be carrhd by exptees
or other private companies along the railroads aud otbei
great thoroughfares, where its amount would menus
the rev-nues of the Department, it is difficult to undi r
Stand why we shal not also allow tbo express and othu
companies to carry the letter mail on the la’lroodH am
ott er crest thoroughfares, where it is prcfi'ab'.e, and a)
low the Government to be the exclusive carrier of all
class 's of master on such routes only as pass throng!
spats- ly settled portions of the ebuutry which afford but
little revenue.
To do this would end in breaking down the Dtps l
inert, or io keepiug it in operation at tbe expen.e cf th,
general Treasury. Toe policy of allowing mail matte:
to he carried as lrtight, wherever it may be prefi table t>
private ciniert, creates rivals who are invited by th»i
detents to contend with the Department ter its revr
cues on all the most important lines of pcstal comtnuot
Ci'ion ; those which are most expensive to the Depart
mentand most difficult to control. Such a policy wonl<
be both unwise and disastrous, and I (Minot too atrongl'
ren.turn *c<! tbe continuance ol the policy o' refusing ti
allow newipapers aud periodica!', to be carried over tin
post-road* « freight, and of requiring the payment o'
postage ou them as on all other mail matter.
