OUR j POST A tr/. RRANGEiVlENTS AMONG ^he disadvantages and grievances under which-the 'inhabitants-of this district suffer, the mail arrangement is not on?..of the least. It is really too bad that a large and important population.should be doomed to receive;ilieirmail* only once a week, and not only so,-bnt, to have little. more than t vemy hours,(including the hours of night,, to Answer.- iheir letters. Ourr;mail' bags arrive on Thursday afternoon, and 71» ave again pti Friday morning. Our townsmen who have extensive busiu'ess transactions," must thus si", up the greater portion of the uiiht in order to save the mail, and even then they Je not always succeed in doing so . while persons living even a few miles from the township hatfe scarcely a chance of an swering a Ivtter by return of post. Iu our owi^cpnccru, the incomenience._ of having only uuef weekly mail is very considerable. We have been repeatedly urged to publish on Thursday morning, BO that our impres« siou would be rea...
