The mail agent difficulty.

--The Norfolk Herald, noticing the intended expulsion of Lincoln's mail agent from Petersburg, says :

Mr. Kueller is a native of Washington, D. C., but has resided all his life in Virginia — the last thirty years in Norfolk. He has always borne the character of a peaceable, inoffensive man. With politics he has meddled but little, but has always cast his vote fearlessly with the Whig party, and voted the Union (or Bell and Everett) ticket at the November election. To say that he is a Black Republican, would be a libel. That he will fill the office satisfactorily, we have not heard if doubted.
