The New Mail Agent.

--We learn that Mr. Bruce, the Mail Agent on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, was waited upon yesterday by a deputation of citizens of Culpeper Court-House, and informed that he would not be allowed to pass through that village again as Mail Agent. Mr. B. replied that he would do so, no matter what were the consequences; and thus, if both parties preserve a bold front, we may expect to have a loverly time in old Culpeper in a few days.--Lynchburg Republican.

Mr. Bruce, in charge of the United States mail, says the Alexandria Gazette, went through to Lynchburg on Monday, and returned Tuesday. He was not molested at any point on the entire route.
