HISTORY OF THE BOSTON POST OFFICE–C.W. ERNST, Esq., the Assistant Postmaster of the Boston Post Office, contributes a history of this office to the Souvenir printed for the Special Delivery Messengers in February last, and also a history of the Special Delivery Service. Both contain valuable historical matter. The history of the Post Office in this city has been compiled with great labor, and furnishes a succinct account of the office from the appointment of Richard FAIRBANKS as postmaster in 1639 to the administration of Thomas N. HART.
