The Virginia mails.
--A dispatch from Washington
to a Republican paper North speaking of the opposition of the people of Virginia
to the appointment of Abolition mail agents, says:
The people along the routes threaten tar and feathers to the unlucky agents if they attempt to do their duty, and one has already resigned and the other is expected to throw up his commission.
Several Virginia Republicans have presented themselves for the vacancies, and will serve at all hazards.
If the people interrupt them the mails are likely to be cut off. The Department has determined to postpone the appointment of Postmasters and Mail Agents throughout the State
until after the State
election, in May next.
A clean sweep will then be made.
