Valuable Post-offices.

--The Augusta (Ga.) Sentinel thinks the determination of the Southern Congress to discontinue some of the little Post-Offices is wise, if not carried too far. Some of them, it says, are merely Post-Offices in name. For instance, we find that, for the year ending September 30th, 1859, the net proceeds of each of five offices in Florida was under ten cents. Three of them received four cents each, and one of them three cents. Certainly, these offices could be lopped off without any great harm.
