Big English Mail.

A considerable proportion of the English Christmas mail arrived by the Orama today, and gave the postal officials a busy time. That vessel landed 850 bags for this State, as well as 1,600 letter bags for the Eastern States, which will go forward by rail to-night. An idea of the size of the consignment may be had from the fact that the usual weekly quota for the Eastern States is 650 bags. The Orama will be followed by the Naldera, due a week later, which also carries 850 bags for Western Australia and 1,200 letter bags for other States. Several thousand bags remain in the holds of tie ships, consisting mainly of newspapers and parcels for delivery upon arrival at the respective ports.
