CONCURRENT RESOLUTIONS IN RELATION TO

THE REDUCTION OF POSTAGE.

[ocr errors][merged small][ocr errors]

In Senate, March 20, 1850. Resolved (if the assembly concur), That it be recommended to the senators and representatives of the state of New York, in Congress of the United States, to use their best efforts to procure the passage of a law during the present congress, which shall reduce the postage chargeable on all letters, not exceeding half an ounce in weight, carried in the United States mail, for all distances within the United States, and the territories thereof, to five cents, and for any additional weight, to five cents for each half ounce, or for any fraction less than half an ounce; and in case of prepay, ment at the post office where such letters are deposited, such postage to be farther reduced to two cents for each half ounce in weight, and to two cents for each additional half ounce and fraction less than half an ounce.

Resolved (if the assembly concur), That it is unjust and inexpedient that the expenses of unproductive mail routes, of free letters and documents of dead letters, and the excess of the cost of transporting in the mails, newspapers and pamphlets beyond the postage charged on them, should be borne solely by those who send and receive letters; that such service is for the benefit of the whole people, and its expenses should be defrayed from the common treasury, if the revenues of the post office department, under a reduced rate of postage, should prove insufficient, and that said senators and representatives be requested to use their best efforts for an early removal of this oppressive and unequal tax upon the business and social relations of the people.

Resolved (if the assembly concur), That our senators and representatives in congress, be requested to recommend the adoption of a law making newspapers, postage free, in each county where the same are printed.

Resolved (if the assembly concur), That the governor be requested to transmit copies of these resolutions to said senators and representatives. By order,

WILLIAM HENRY BOGART, Clerk.
