§ COLONEL NAGHTEN
asked the Postmaster General, Whether it is the intention of the Government to continue to send the mails for Gibraltar through Spain, notwithstanding the remonstrances made by merchants against that route, instead of by weekly packet as formerly?
§ LORD JOHN MANNERS
Sir, mails have been sent daily to Gibraltar through France and Spain for several years, and are still sent. The weekly line of steam vessels from Southampton to Egypt which call at Gibraltar have ceased to be used as mail packets since the 1st of this month; but ship letter bags for Gibraltar are despatched by these vessels containing all letters superscribed by the writers "By private ship from Southampton" or "By P. and O. steamer from Southampton."
