DAILY POST TO EXr.AND.-It would
appear, the cable across the Gulf of St.
Lawrence having been repaired and re
biid, that our communication with the
ONd World, by means of the Atlantic
Telegraph, will be certain, constant and
rapid. in future. We have to add ;
that it is the intention of the British
Government to establish, if possible, a
daily post with this country-that is, to
send a swift mail steamer from Liver
pool every day in the week, by which
letters and new.papers will be conveyed.
In order to make tis A real been to' the
public, the postage, which is nowv t wenty
four ce.nts for each let ter wveighing less
than half an ounce, will be reduced to at
least half that amount. This, however,
wvill probably require the~ joint action of
the United States Congres.--Phladel

The Now York evening papers of
Tuesday, published dispatches from
London and Paris, up to noon of that
day, and we had theirin laid before us
what The Paris Moniteur of that day
said. It seems almost miraculous.
In 1842 Professor Morse announced
to the Secretary of the Treasury of
the United States "that a telegraph
communication on his plan might with
certainty be established across the At
lantic." The professor has lived to
see the prediction of a quarter of a
century ago realized.
The Emperor of Austria sent his 300
horses and 150 carriages to Ofen for
