--The Lynchburg (Va.)
Republican, of yesterday, has the following paragraph:
's Mail Agent on the Alexandria Road
, made his first trip up Saturday, and in passing Charlottesville
was waited on by a committee of citizens, who informed him, in the politest manner possible, that he had better throw up his commission and retire from the public service, or he would be dealt with according to his deserts as a Black Republican, who would never be permitted to scatter his foul teachings over Virginia
C., thinking ‘ "discretion the better part of valor,"’ consented to resign on his return to Alexandria
, and he was permitted to pass.
It is also stated that the said gentleman, upon reaching this city, Saturday evening, made a castle of his mail-car, from which he was afraid to budge and come out in the city, but remained safely ensconced in it until his departure yesterday morning, sending the mail up by a substitute.
