The Courier for 1862L The Thirteenth anniversary of the Ottnm wa Courier is at hand, and the occasion neems fitting for a word to its friends and the cit:zrns of Wapello county.- shall be brief, but we hope to the point. For I! The question now comes up, and it id the gist of this article, has not the Courier some elaitns upon the good people of Wapello?— We need, in order to continue the paper in a manner conformable to our notions of what a weekly, local, county papen should be, a more liberal support, and we need in addi tion, every cent that is due us. Slay we not asked both with the confident expecta tion that oar old friends will respond promptly and liberally, and that new friends will come forward to our aid. THE OFFICIAL CIT.Y PAPER) nearly ill the loyal States—and especiiOJy tho«e bordering on Seccssia—were fourwfr'to be infested with a class of m«»n whnsfcwarm* est sympathies were enlisted in favor of tr ca non. The spirit of disloyalty made itself mnnifest in different degreos, in different lo cfilities but the tHtrol,phtos*it'iisMimed, was the sacred and venerated respect it enter tained for the 'Teat constitutional rights of freedom of sp«nkifig and publishing whatev er it might please. l.miORRI§, Editor*. OTTUMWA, IOWA, Dec, 25,1961 Thirteen yesrs the Cockier has made Federal Fort ir safe keeping. its wevkly visits to such of the citizens of this and adjoining counties as chose to re ceiv* it. In good and in hard effnes the Courier has been forthcoming with the regu larity of the seasons, ur.til now it may rea sonably claim to be an old settler—to the manor born. And if any will take the pains to look orer a file of the paper, we think it will be apparent that it has been worth to the community all it has cost. It constitutes an invaluabk history of the county from al most its tir.-t settlement. There are few papers ir the State that have been published with greater regularity, that have better kept up with the times in aire and typograpical appearance, or that have been published under more unfavora ble circumstances. Daring almost the entire period of its existence, the politics of the county have been unfavorable to it, and it has been almost entirely dependent upon the private enterprise of its conductors— And yet we take pride in saving that it has at all times enjoyed vigorous health, and has maintained its credit unimpaired: No one has ever worked in the office without receiving prompt pay so far as are know and believe. While we solicit the continued and in ereased support from the public, we will as sure them that the Courier will be continued with the same regularity as heretofore, and at the same price, $1,50 in advance, and we hereby tender it to the citizens of Wapello County, promising them that no effort shal be spared on our part, to render it worthy of the support it receives. More and more convinced that the endit pystem is a bad one, we shall hereafter re quire advance payment for some period, ei ther in money or in some commodity H»M we can use. With these remaiks, we submit the claims of the )4th volume of the Courier to the con sideration of the citizens of this county, who have an interest in its pern anencv and pros perity, second only toouraelf. Ottumwa, Dec. 25th, 1861. Latent Jletvs. Gen Scott is coming honue. Many think this indicates trouble in Europe. Prince Albert died at nooq, on the 15th, «»f gastric fever. The details of bridge burning and track destroying on North Missouri Railroad are at hand, but to lengthy for to-day's paper. Gen. Geo. W. Jones, late Senator from Iowa, and recent U. S.

Foreign dates to the 11th represent Eng land as KostiWy inclined, but France com mitted to neutrality. Lord Lyons has re ceived and communicated to our government his instructions. Sec.

The whole nt mber of ordinary dead let ters received and examined durnj the year was about 2,550,000. "The number of thefte letiefs Containing money, which were registered and* sent out during the year ending June 80, 1861, was 10,580. The number of dead letters raturned- un opened to foreign countries during the fis cal year was 112,147, which added to the number of domrstic letters (103,880), sent out as above, gives the wh le nnnjh^r *wnt out from the dead letter office f.»r the year 215,033. Tlie result of suca^ssfpl'1 investigation in 7,560 casds confirms ihe fifist experience of the department, that the failure of a letter to roach its destination is, in the vast majority of instances, fr.e ftmlt alone of the writer or sender. Out of the above 7,660 valuable ded 1 tters, 3,095 were directed to the wrong offipe 612 were directed to transient persons 25£ to parties who had changed heir residences 821 were addressed to fic titious persons or firms S3-, were uncalled fbr 10 without any direction 2,1(36 were not mailed for want of postage, stamps, 79 missent and for the fa'lure of postmasters todelive 133, no satisfactory Jason was as signed. Thfi,department therefore canjus tily be held responsible for the nondelivery of but of these tetters. Much other valuable data is given on this subject, and it is worthy of remark, that out of 76,769 letters before alluded to, origina tinz in the loyal States, and addressed to residents of disloyal States, 40,000 could not be returned, either because tbe signature of the writer was incomplete, or because the letter contained no clue to his residence.— The experience of the Department shows that a large proportion of domestic letters written by educated persons particularly wo men, are deficient in one or both of these respects. Tn view of these and other facts, the Post master General suggests that valuable dead letters when rcturnod'to their ownors, should' be charged treble the ordinary rate of pos tasre, comprising one rat- for re»»w trans nortations to the dead Wtor. office, one. rjjte for registration thee, nml one rate lor re turn. transportation V the writers or ow ners. A treaty with Mexico, has been "concluded, 'awaiting the ratification by Mexico, estab lishing a common international rate of twen ty-five cents on letters, with other useful provisions. The Postmaster General has acccpted the offer made in 1857 by Great Bi itan fo a re duction of the international rate between the two countries on letters, from twenjty-fourto twelve-cents, which however, has not* yet gone into operation, as it awaits the res ponse of the British office.
