The Post Office.
--Why is it that a soldier or a citizen, who sees a letter advertised in the papers for himself, cannot get it at the Post-Office without paying the advertising price in coin?
Few persons, except the extortioners, have even two cents
in specie, and therefore, under the present Post-Office regulations, they are unable to buy their advertised letters, even though they offer for it a Confederate postage stamp, amounting to five times the tax placed upon it by the law.
If this is right, then we are unable to see how it is made so. It seems to us as bad as the refusal to take Confederate notes.
