One or two of the Railroads in Eastern Virginia, carrying the United States mail, have notified the proper Departments at the seat of Government that they cannot assume to do so should the present postal arrangements be interfered with to the extent of ruthless proscription of the route agents now in charge of mail matter passing over such lines. As we understand the affair, the roads in question do not design to dictate what the Post- Office Department shall or shall not do in the premises. They mean only to indicate their own course of action, should the public interests be interfered with by the appointment of objectionable and incompetent persons, who may, from their official positions, bring the railroads into disrepute.
