a Increased number of trips.

Corrected distance.
c Route from Stamford to Richfield, 174 miles, placed under railroad contract; remain.

ing 117 miles is for discontinued service.
d Embraces the steamship service from New York, via Panama, to San Francisco,

Cal., heretofore set down to California. Route from White Hall to Rouse's Point

curtailed to end at Plattsburg, saving 25 miles and $1,200 per annum.
• Close of first year of new contract term.
f The greater portion of this belongs to railroads, and is caused by the fact that pre-

vious reports gave the contract number of trips, whereas returns from the rail.
road officials, in connection with the reports of weight of mails, &c., show that
the number of trips actually performed is greatly

in excess of the contract number.
9 Route from Grafton to Parkorsburg transferred to West Virginia.

h Occasioned by failures and deaths of contractors, and service having to be re-let

at higher pay;
i Route from Bridgeport to Decatur curtailed to commenco at Guntersville, saving

104 miles, and service between Guntersville and Decatur increased to six times

a week. Pay on route from Mobile to Selma increased. j Service on 474 miles of route from Vicksburg to Meridian reduced to six times a

week, and pay to $75 per mile. Route from York Station, Ala., to Meridian,

Miss., 273 miles, put in operation,
k This is owing principally to the fact that the service re-advertised in January, 1868,

to go into operation July 1, 1868, was let at a much lower rate of cost than had

been previously given for it. i Steamship service from New York via Panama to San Francisco, Cal., transferred

to New York section.
m Number of trips per week reduced.
