    The following text is presented here in complete form, as it originally appeared in print. Spelling and typographical errors have been preserved as in the original.

    THE POST-OFFICE AND THE EXPRESS. We are again indebted to the courtesy of the Adams Express Company for New-Orleans papers received in New-York three days and a half after publication, and, of course, in advance of the mail, which may arrive here perhaps before Lent. Papers of New-Year’s Day, however, reached New-York through the Post-office from New-Orleans in exactly three weeks so that we do not wish to speak positively on the question of any possible or probable performances of the National Mail.

    But we chronicle once more the fact that New-Orleans and New-York are really less than a week apart for energetic and practical private Companies, in the faint hope that it may be of some use to the few statesmen at Washington who are now thinking seriously about Postal matters, in the course of debate on the Deficiencies bill.
