That the interest and convenience of a large number of the citizens of the counties of Walworth, Waukesha and Jefferson, would be greatly enhanced by the establishment of a tri-weekly mail

route from Elk Horn, (the county seat : of Walworth county,) via Palmyra rto Jefferson, (the is! county seat of Jefferson county,) a distance of about forty miles.

Your memorialists would represent, that the establishment of said mail route would be of the greatest importance to the people residing in that portion of the state, most of whom are now nearly destitute of mail facilities, or supplied in a very imperfect manner, having no direct communication with any of the large daily mail routes in the state.

Your memorialists would, therefore, respectfully ask that the aforesaid mail route may be established at the earliest practicable period.

Approved, February 11, 1853.

That the interest and convenience of a large number of the citizens of the Counties of Sheboygan, Calumet and Winnebago would be greatly enhanced by the establish. ment of a tri-weekly mail, on mail route, No. 4616, between Menasha and Sheboygan.

That the service on mail route, No. 4529, known as the Fond du Lac and Port Washington mail route, is limited to once each week, and the large number of inhabitants, on said mail route, renders it a matter of importance that service on said route should be increased to twice in each week.

Memorial to Congress for an additional Appropriation to aid in the Improve Chap. 7.

rept of a Harbor at Ma itowoc. To the Honorable the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States :

The Memorial of the State of Wisconsin respectfully represents :

That the village of Manitowoc is situate upon the west

shore of Lake Michigan, at the entrance of the Manito.woc river into said lake, nearly midway between the Manitou Islands and the north-east, Bailey's harbor on the north, and the city of Milwaukee on the south, about one -hundred miles distant from any of the three points above named, between which points there is no harbor or place of shelter for the numerous boats and vessels navigating said lake, completed, on which the coinmerce is already large, and annually rapidly increasing. That during the season of navigation, great loss of life and property occurs on said lake, between the points aforesaid, much of which might be prevented by constructing a harbor at Manitowoc, at which point it is believed a harbor can be built at less expense than at any any other point on the west shore of said lake; that the appropriation of eight thousand dollars already made by congress for this point is barely sufficient to make a respectable beginning of a work of national importance, and well deserving the aid of the Government of the United States, and that should an additional appropriation of fifteen thousand dollars be made, and the aggregate amount be judiciously expended, it would, in the opinion of your memorialists, be sufficient to complete a safe and capacions harbor, easy of access, at the point aforesaid.

And your memorialists respectfully, but earnestly, ask of your honorable body to make the desired appropriation at an early day.

Approved, March 22, 1853.
