Postmaster at Lynchburg.

--We are pleased to notice the re-appointment of Major R. H. Glass as Postmaster in the city of Lynchburg. He was first appointed to that position in 1853 by General Pierce, and made an admirable officer. On the 4th of March last he resigned, refusing to hold office under a Black Republican Administration. As the editor of the Lynchburg Republican, which he conducted with signal ability, he maintained that Lincoln's election would be "good cause for a dissolution of the Union;" and, when he was elected, Major Glass hoisted the flag of Separation, and battled steadfastly for it until its accomplishment. Though his office exempted him from military service, he is now in the field, as aid to General Floyd, with the rank of Major, and has already served bravely in the two battles fought by that gallant officer on the banks of the Gauley.
