Appointing the wrong man
--A rather novel case has occurred in the history of Governor Brown
's military appointments.
It appears that there were two applicants from this city — Levi S. Russell
and Philip M. Russell
— for the post of Assistant Commissary
in one of the Georgia
Levi S. Russell
received the appointment, was duly commissioned, and for a week or two past has been engaged with the duties of the office.
, not finding this state of things wholly to his liking, concluded to look into the matter, and upon talking it over with the Governor
, succeeded in convincing him that he had appointed the wrong Russell
At least the Governor
revoked the commission to Levi and bestowed the office on Philip.
This is rather a curious mistake, though we have heard a suggestion that may throw some light on the error, or rather its correction, viz: Philip voted for Gov. Brown
in the election and Levi did not!--Savannah Rep.
