EFFECT OF REDUCED POSTAGE RATES. The reduction of the postage between India and England from 2td. to Id. the half-ounce has been followed by a very remarkable increase in correspon- dence, says a Simla correspondent. Very recently the train conveying- the home mail to Calcutta from Bombay had to put on no fewer than six mail vans, and competent opinion is found to declare that the contents of the mail bags are nearly double what they were a few years ago. Some little time will no doubt elapse before the Indian Post Office will be able to accurately gauge the position but it begins to look very much as if this reform, which is undoubtedly doing much towards uniting India with the Mother Country, would very soon begin to pay for itself, if it does net actually come to be worked at a profit.
