The Post office Department has made arrangements for the substitution of the steamer Lapland for the Titanic, in carrying mails to Europe from New York City.

The Lapland will leave New York on next Saturday and will transport mail to Europe which was to have been taken by the Titanic, which was due to sail from New York on that date.

Specially addressed correspondence for Europe by way of Havre, France, will close at the New York office at 7 p.m. today and mails for France will close at midnight tonight for the La Bretagne.
