The following communication was received two or three
weeks since for publication. We had heard the story
to which it relates, ad the source when it sprang, but
deemed it too ridiculous to require contradiction. As,
however, we are informed, great exertions are making
to circulate this report, with a view to prevent the
election of Mr. Sanborn, we feel it our duty, in justice
to the character of the Gentleman, to insert the certificate
of Levi Towle, Esq., the person with whom the transaction
referred to, took place.

In many instances the persons to whom large bundles are directed, refuse to take them out of the mail; and thus a direct fraud on the Post Office Department is committed. What would have been the condition of the public mails, had Daniel Webster and his partly succeeded in taking off the postage on newspapers, extras and handbills?
