Yesteiday afternoon, Alfred Bush,

poles now are so badly broken that, a

doubtlessly the result of .thoughtlessness,
but should be put a stop to.
New Postal Arrangement.
We learn from the postoffice depart
ment in this city that a new postal ar
rangement has been effected, to go into
operation to-day, by which the route
agents who leave for the South on the
mail train, from here go directly through
to Charleston without change, and those
who leaves for' the North go directly
hrough to! Washington City without
change. This arrangement will greatly
facilitate the delivery and transportation
of the mails, an.d, although it will necessi
tate the employment ota larger force : of
route agents, it will subs?.re the public
interest very much.
