OUR POST OFFICE. We were showing a gentleman friend through the town some time ago. We pointed out to him with considerable pride, such buildings as St. Elran's Church, the Temperance Hall, and the National Bank ot Wales. He expressed a suitable amount of admiration of these, but suddenly damped our ardour by asking where was the post office. We were then standing in Canon-street. Oh," said we, the er-er-post- office is er-er-down there." Down where ?" he- interrogated. Down there," we repeated, waving our hand vaguely in its direction. "I can't see it," declared he. No, very probably you can't," said we. He proposed that we shoald go and inspect it. No," said we let's go up to the public park." But in vain did we expatiate on the beauties of the latter place. He wanted to see the post office, and to the post oSee he would go. So, with no inconsiderable show of reluctance, we conducted him towards Commercial-place and pointed it out to him. His conduct at this juncture became very ex- traordinary. He suddenly turned round on his heel, uttered these four expressive words, '1 Well, I am blowed," and began to walk rapidly away. We followed him disconsolately, pondering on the fallacy of the whatever is, C, j is right" theory, and hoping that something 0 would shortly be done with a view to trans- forming that miserable little hole, wherein is i-fcrtrosacted the postal business of our town, into something that we should not be ashamed to own. And it has been done; but it has not been done well; and rather than accept it in this slip-shod manner, our local board have refused to sanction it. The plans for the PROPOSED NEW POST OFFICE did not represent a building such as we ought to possess The arrangements were poor the accommodation was inadequate; the whole construction was unworthy of our town and the gentlemen who represent us cannot be thanked too heartily for the unanimous manner in which they repudiated such half measures. It is for us to give them every support in our power. We have borne this standing disgrace to our town long onough -too long. It is now full time, not only to have the matter attended to, but to have it attended to in a proper manner and we take it that we shall not be behind hand in adding our voices to those of our local board in a way;that will leave no doubt of our feelings on the matter.
