General Post Office.

This important office we have already mentioned. It is situated in an area on the south side of Lombard Street. As a building it is worthy of notice, when the importance and magnitude of its concerns are considered. But one more worthy of British commerce has been projected and its site is to be St. Martin's-le-Grand, Newgate Street, and having received legislative sanction, and a commencement being made by the removal of buildings, we have only to express our hope, that this important establishment will, ere long, be accommodated in a manner worthy of its utility, and, in regard to architecture, more honourable to British taste and British opulence.
