Appointing the wrong man

--Commission Revoked.--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 regiments. 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. Phillip, 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.
