To the Editor of the British Whig.

Sir:- I beg to call your attention to a serious inconvenience occasioned to travellers by the delay of boats waiting for the Mail. A few days ago I took my passage downwards, and hastened on board at an early hour, as the boat was to start precisely at 7 o'clock - yet we were detained about an hour and a half to receive the mail. In talking over the matter with other passengers, I found that much dissatisfaction prevailed about the tardiness of the Post-Office. If the delay is unavoidably caused by the overhauling at the office, that department is of course blameless, and the public should be so informed; but if greater despatch be possible, I trust the complaint will be removed: as things are carried on at present, the new Post Office arrangements are far from fulfilling public expectation.
