REPORT AND RESOLUTIONS RELATIVE TO REDUCING POSTAGES AND ABRIDGING THE FRANKING PRIVILEGE.

The committee to whom were referred the documents communicated to the Senate by his Excellency the Governor, at the commencement of the session, from the Legislatures and the Executives of other States of the Union, having had under consideration the following resolutions adopted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of New York, on the ninth of April last, and transmitted to the Governor of this State, to be laid before the Legislature thereof, to wit:

“STATE OF NEW YORK. “Resolved, as the sense of this Legislature, That the franking privilege, tolerated by the post office law of the United States, is a monopoly unsuited to the spirit of the age, subject to enormous abuses, and an unreasonable burden to the few letter correspondents that bear the principal expense of the establishment, and ought to be abolished.

Resolved, That for the purpose of diminishing the burdens of corres. pondents, increasing the revenues of the post office establishment, and restoring the community, rich and poor, to an equal participation in its benefits, letter postage ought to be greatly reduced, and the disparity between the charge of letters and other matter carried in the mail, corrected.

Resolved, That our Representatives and Senators in Congress be respectfully requested to use their best endeavors to procure a reform in the post office laws, based on the above views.

Resolved, That the Executive of this State be respectfully requested to transmit copies of the foregoing resolutions to the Senators and Representatives of this State in Congress, and also to the Executives of our sister States, with a view to their being laid before their legislative bodies."

Respectfully report the following resolutions, which they recommend for adoption:

Resolved, by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Vermont, That they do concur in the said resolutions above recited; and that our Representatives and Senators in Congress be respectfully requested, to use their best endeavors to procure a reform in the post office laws, in conformity with the above views.

Resolved, That the Executive of this State be respectfully requested to transmit copies of the foregoing report and resolutions to the Senators and Representatives of this State in Congress, and also 'to the Executives of our sister States, with the view to their being laid before their respective legislative bodies.
