— NATIONAL FEDERATION OF SUB- POSTMASTERS. Sir,—A deputation from Manchester waited upon several sub-postmasters in Chester and district on Monday, and were very well received. They spoke of the grievances under which sub-postmasters labour in regard to the remu- neration for their long hours and heavy responsibility. One gentleman had been on the deputation to London to the conference with the Postmaster-General and Mr. Hanbury, Secretary to the Treasury. They learned that in several instances in Chester it had been difficult to get tradespeople to take on the post-office. There are very few who do not soon regret having their business deteriorated through the exacting duties of the port. The salary ranges from Id. to 2d. per hour, and this has to re- munerate for the constant anxiety and care of stock and cash, for even if the sub-postmaster goes away for a few days* holiday he is still held responsible, and must make good all losses. Any sub-postmaster or mistress who wishes can join the association.—Yours, &c., WILLIAM COVENTRY. Post Office, Watergate-street.
