Mr. POPE.

I call the attention of the Postmaster General to the dismissal, ox-rumoured dismissal, of Miss Sanborn, postmistress of Bulwer, which, I understand, is on account of the alleged partisanship displayed by that young iady during the elections which took place in Compton. While we are all accustomed to the peculiar character of vengeance which the present government visits upon those unfortunate gentlemen who have votes and who voted intelligently and independently, I wish to present to the Postmaster General the case of a young lady who has no vote. This post office is in a small community, and the house answers for the Canadian Pacific Railway station as well as for the post office. I understand that the office has not as yet been removed, and I take this early opportunity of calling the attention of the Postmaster General to it. The post office, together with the keeping of the railway station, is the only means of livelihood which this young lady has, and I trust she will not be removed as postmistress. I wish to know if the Postmaster General will grant my request.
