The Report of the Postmaster General for this
year exhibits a very healthy financial condition
of the PoAt Office Department, and shows' it to
be thoroughly impregnated with the spirit of
improvement. The efficiency of the service has'
been maintained at the highest point, accom
panied by a great diminution of expenditures
The gross revenue of the Department for the
fiscal year, including the standing Treasury
credit for free mail matter, and a small amount
appropriated for the relief of individuals, was
$9,012,649. The expenditures 'for the same
year amounted to $11,125,864. The regular
postal revenue for 1862 is only $49,475 less
than it was for the fiscal year 1861, during a
large part of which year revenue was paid in
from all the States of the Union. This fact
shoWs a large increase in the correapcindence of
the loyal States.
While the revenues have been so nearly sus
tained at the highest standard, the expenses
have been largely reduced. For the preceding
year the expenditure was $2,481,394 gteater
than last year. The following comparison of
figures is interesting :
Expenditures for 1860, for service in
all the States $l4 874,772
Revenues for same year. .... 9,218,067
Expenditures for 1861, (service in
terrupted in 1861) $13,606, ; 759
Gross revenue.. 9,049,296
Expenditures for 1862 $11,125,864
Revenue 9,012,549
Reduction of expenditures com
p ired with 1860 $3,749,408
Reduction of expenditures as com
pared with 1861 $2,481,394
The department has not been for many years
so nearly self-sustaining. The result is largely
owing to the suspension of postal expenditures
In the south, which was greatly in excess of
postal receipts there. But not alone to that.
A revision of all discretionary expense's has
been made, and large reductions ordered. The
pay of agents has been regraded and equalized;
economy has been established in the larger
offices where waste was found ; incompetency,
wherever found in official position, has been
removed ; and an effort made to adopt a stand
ard of merit and of administrative efficiency in
lieu of other and inferior motives for appoint
ment. The Postmaster General expesses his
determination to adhere to this course.
The number of postage stamps issueil to
postmasters during the year was 261,307,106-;
the number of stamped envelopes was 24,869,-
800. The value of the/3e etamps was $7,078,-
118 ; the value of the letter .envelopes, $734,-
265. The value of stamped newspaper wrap
pers, $23 646. Increase of issue over 1861
is 1,144,868. ' The total value was $6,910,131.
Ilheincreased demand on the part of the pub- .
lic for the stamped newspaper wrappers, shows
that their introduction haa satisfied a public
demand and promoted the convenience of cor
In the first quarter of the current' year (end
ing 30th September,) the number of stamps
issued to postmasters was one hundred and
four millions, their calls being for 'about two
hundred millions, which would have been
nearly sufficient to meet the usual demand for
a year. This extraordinary demand arose from
the temporary use of thesestamps as a currency
by the public in Hen of the smaller denomina
tions of specie, and ceased with the introduc
tion of the so-called postal currency.
The difference between the value of the
stamps sold and stamps cancelled, in the fiscal
year 1862, shows $738,379 as the amount in
the hands of purchwiers on the Ist of July,
The whole number of dead letters received
and examined during the year is 2,282,018,
which is 269,000 less than in the previous year.
The whole number of valuable lettere sent out
by the Dead Letter Office was 61,239. Many
interesting details are given in the report
touching the operations of this office. Out of
21,493 cases where cause of non delivery was
ascertained, only. 225 were attributed to the
fault of postmasters. Eight hundred and
twenty-two letters had no address whatever.
Oongress,'at rte first session, passed an act
authorizing the employment of twenty-five
additional clerks, to facilitate the return of
dead letters to their ,writers, with the expecte
lien 'that the receipts of portages th ereon would
cover, the appropriation of $20,000 made , for
their compensation. The result thus far shows
that an excess of revenue therefrom over the
expenses has accrued to the amount of several
thousand dollars.
The whole number of post offices in the Uni
ted States remaining established on the 30th .
June, 1862, was 28,875, of which . there were in
loyal and districts 19,973; and in the
insurrectionary States and districts there were
The nett increase in the established offices
over last year was 121.
The number of cases acted upon by the ap
pointment office during the year was 7,785.
The total postage accrued on United . States
and Europeau mails during the year amount to
$1,144,095,' being a reduction from the amount
of the previous year of $217,940. Of the total
amount collected the excess collected in the
United States was $212,607, which constitutes
the balances paid to the several foreign depart
ments, the coat of exchange being defrayed by
the United States. The Postmaster General
objects to this cost as inequitable and propo
ses, it possible, to relieve the Dep artment from
this burden.
The Postmaster General has made special
efforts to relieve the foreign correspondence of
the country from its complexity, now an em
barrassing alike to correspondents and to postal
officers. Separate negotiations have been found
altogether inadequate to secure simple and sat
isfactory arrangements. He therefore opened
a correspondence in August last, through the
Department of State, with foreign Administra
tions'proposing a convention of postal repre
sentatives at some convenient point, to consider
the enumerated difficulties, and the means of
remedying them. Several replies have been
received from various Governments, and all are
favorable, and agree to the project. Thia coun
try, comprising immigrations from almost every
civilised nation, is especially interacted in the
subjects proposed to be brought before this con
ference. It is a sphere of postal improvement
requiring the establishment 'of greater uniform
ity and some common principle of arrangement,
and is connected with our prosperous commer
cial intercourse with other countries. ,
The mall lettings which went into openttion
on the first of July last in the western division
were effected on such favorable terms as,. coin
pared'wit4 the previous lettings, that a reduc
tkin of eirpenditure resulted to the amonnt of
$881,000: At the same time the length of
routes was increased by 6,159 miles, with an
annual increase of transportation of 754,428
miles. Notwithstanding this increase of ser
vice the nett saving is over nine per ceit. as
compared with the previous term.
TAo total annual cost of inland ser-
vice . in operating on the 30th of
Jane last was $5,853,884
To which add the cost of the various
agencies, route, local, messenger,
&c 460,630
And the cost of service to that date is. $6,814,464
Which includes $1,000,000 for the overland
Mail route not before charged upon the 'reve
nues of this Department. The saving in the
lettings of first July, 1862, is attributed to a
strict 'adherence to the law of 1845 authoriz
ing what is known is "star bids."
The report renews the recommendation for
codifyin'o all the postal laws, and hopes it may
be done at" this session ?
Among the improvement under the conside
ration by the Postmaster General is that cif em
bossing postal stamps on business and other .
envelopes supplied for that' purpose by persons
desiring to furniali their own designs It is
believed that this will largely increase Gait use
of stamped envelopes in lieu of stamps, which
is an object of great importance to the Depart
He also discourages the use of the mails for
transmitting money, and speaks favorably of a
limited money order system, and of an amend
ment to the registry system, by which a *turn
receipt shall be sent to the dispatching party,
as evidence of the fact and date of delivery of
hbi package. •
He also proposes to abolish many of thO dis
criminating rates of postage now existing,
approximating, as far as possible, to uniformity,
and increasing the efficiency and extent of the
deliverY and collection of letters by carriers in
the public attention is called to the great
importance of good postal officers for a success
ful administration of this department. post
masters and their clerks are selected without
chief reference to their efficiency : and
personal litness, no amount of good le
gislation will secure public satisfaction.
An energetic, faithful and efficient postmas
ter, devoted to the interests of the service,
should be retained as long as he illustrates
those qualities in his administration of the
office. He attributes'the success of the English
system largely to the permanent character of
their officers and their'familiarity with the laws
and regulations, and regrets the extent to
which other motives to appointment@ have
prevailed in this country. He urges a return
IC the old standard of honesty: capability and
fidelity, and anticipates more public satisfaction
and administrative success from the adoption of
such a principle than from any other single act
of reform. Herinies thislanguage ; "It is my
intention to adhere firmly to my determination
to displace incompetency and indifference
wherever found in official position undet my
control, without any discrimination hi' favor of
appointments which 'I may thyself have made
under misinformation of facte."

It is alleged that Major Spaulding started

he • should have started, and was five days
looger,on the road than was necessary.
, The estimates of the Treasury Department
are unavoidably delayed. The Committee of

which to frame the general appropriation bills.

The Commissioner of Internal Revenue 'has
made the following decision: Railroad compa
nies making cars and locomotives to replace
the old stock, or to increase the equipment,
must pay a tax upon the whole value of such
manufactures, if their annual products 'extieed
$6OO, even though the articles are manUfac
tared for their own consumption.
Carpets, when prepared by dealers in carPet
ing, and upon special orders, are not regale:led
as manufactures, nor liable to taxation as *h.
Sails, when made upon order, and to suit a
particular vessel, are not regarded as manufac
tures within the meaning of the excise law; and
they are consequently exempt from duty.
The tax on diamonds and emeralds when
previously 'cut and prepared for setting will be
assessed only
,on the value of the setting.
