Southern mail communication with Europe
.--We learn from L'Abeille
, of New Orleans, that M. Antonia Costa
, of that city, has undertaken the establishment of regular monthly mail communication between that city and Europe
, for which he has the approbation of the postmaster of New Orleans.
The mails go by way of Mexico
, and are transported in the regular English steamers, which carry the mails of Mexico
and the West Indies
The first post left New Orleans on Thursday week, and contained one thousand three hundred and eighty-three letters; the next leaves on the 10th of November.
As soon as the necessary arrangements can be completed, it will leave every two weeks--on the 10th and 25th of each month.
Letters of half an ounce and under will be charged as follows: To Mexico
, fifty cents; to Cuba
, seventy-five cents; to Europe
, one dollar. Letters for this mail must be enclosed, with the amount of postage, in an envelope, directed “Costa
's foreign mail, care of Postmaster, New Orleans,” and the postage paid to New Orleans.--Memphis Appeal, Oct
