gre*t this measure, try to smuggle

mending that in order to make up
the difference caused by this icdue
lion, "the poMagc on fourth class
matter, (which just happens to include
\ and consist very largely ol seeds, be
incr* asod." W hen farmers lemein
i ber that tliey now pay postage at the
late of lime hundred and twenty I
lollara per toil, for every piekage of!
sce*l tiny get through the mails, they
wiil wonder why any one should ask
.to ha'e the rate increased. For an
swrr we quote from Joseph Mrri,
|of Moreton Farm, Rochester, whose
name is as familiar t agricultural
readers, as "household words," and
i who has been having an interesting 1
correspondence with the Postmaster I
(icneral upon tlie subject. .Mr. liar
' ris says :
"The real reason is, that the rv
press com panic* wish to monopolize ;
the business of carrying seed* ami
other merchandize. The distinction [
In-lween third ami fourth class mnt
ter was made ul their instigation, and ;
this is the reason why the rales are so 1
constantly changed. In Axing prices
at which we will send seeds, etc., by '
toail, we are constantly under the ap
prehension that the express compa
nies will induce Congress to advance
the postal rates and ruin our busi
ness. To quote your own words,
'Who etui trade in a market dorninul- j
<d by such a power V Ido not want j
the government to buy up the ex j
press companies, but it is time the i
government .-ml the express coin pa- ;
nit-s dissolved paltnersliip."
We are glad to a/'d that the indi
cations are strong that the monopo
lists will fail of success in this little ,
job. Coiigri-smi n had some very
broad hint- given them last fall as to j
tf/ temper of the people in regard to j
just su 1 matters as this, and it is

ate more mutton ; for tlie latter is
