Mail Late Again
14th March 1857
The Sydney mail had not arrived at the time, of our going to press. We suppose a similar accident has befallen it as the one which happened this day week.
On that occasion the driver actually fell asleep on his box when near Mullengandra, and the horses ran against a tree, breaking both shafts of the vehicle.
The mailman being, by this time awake became solicitous concerning his horses, and mounted one of them for the purpose of pursuing the other, which had bolted.
Her Majesty's mails were left lying on the road; and, if we may form an opinion from the space of time lost, the mails must have remained there some twelve hours.
