one which I tmblished.l simied bv Mr. P. h nil.
christ, Agent, stating that the Susquchannah Boat
j.ine wouiu carry passengers in less time than Hie
Mail Stage which is not the fact. It will be un
derstood that tho Boat leaves Harrisburg one day
before tho Stage; yet wo have taken Passengers
through to Wilkcsbarro in timo for tho Montroso
stages, notwithstanding the tardy manner in-which
the mail 13 brought from Harrisburg .to us at Nor
thumberland. If any other persons had the convey
ance of the mails from Harrisburg to Northumber
land than those connected with the Boats, I would
engage to start at the same hour with tho Boat at
Harrisburg, and deliver the mail and the parsengcrs
TWELVE HOURS sooner than the Boat Lino
possibly can do it.
When tho Company runs a stage from Northum
berland to Wilkesbar're, the mail can arrive at Nor
thumberland from Harrisburg by 11 o'clock, A. M.t
but when tho Boat runs above, they then keen
back the stage at Northumberland until 4 o'clock P.
M. and sometimes as late as 7 o'clock, P. M.
These are facts, which, if the Post Master General
is not aware of, it is time he was made acquainted
