The New mail schedule.

Some dissatisfaction has been expressed since the new mail arrangement went into operation, because the Norfolk mail fails to arrive in due time. The failure of the train from Norfolk to connect at Petersburg with the cars for Richmond, occasions a detention of the mail, and to that extent interrupts the regular operation of the schedule promulgated by the Post Office Department. The matter has been under consideration in the proper quarter, and a correspondence held with the President of the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad, the result of which is, that directions have been forwarded to change the time of running the trains, so far as may be necessary, to meet the requirements of the schedule. We may therefore anticipate a speedy and satisfactory arrangement of the difficulty.

On the numerous post routes throughout the Confederate States, connecting with the great Southern line, the new schedule is going into operation with as little delay as possible. There is no lack of effort on the part of the Department or its agents to have every irregularity promptly corrected.
