Tho Courior-Journal'i Washington "correspondent glvos this Uollultlcm of Quay's attitudo lu regard to the Force bill: "He knows that $1,000,000 from the niamilacturors to spond lu New York, Counoctlmit and Indiana lu the campaign of 182 is worth all the bay onets that could bo stacked lu the ttoutb. Ho docan't care anything about the South, Its Interests or the negroes f tho Houth, and bo would not walk across the Sonato chamber to break the solidity of tho Mouth. As a matter of fact, be wants tho South to remain solid for the Democrats. It helps his parly in the North. Nor does he care anything abont the politi cal fortunes of 1'retldenl llnrriaou or 8peaker Heed." From a purely pnrtlau standpoint It would probably be better for tho Democratic party that tno Force bill should pas. It would not break Dem ocratic solidity of tho South, though it might crcato souio disturbance In this section, and It would create a rc-acliou against tho Republican party at the North. The leading business meu and man ufacturers of the North arc opposed to sectional legislation, and it is they who furnish tho sinews of war for Re publican campaigns. Mr. tuay is a practical politician and his opposition to tho passsgo of the Force bill is basod entirely ou tho ground of party expediene)- And what is inexpedient for the Republi cs!!!, it wonld seem, should bo Demo cratic polley. But it is the bounden duly of the Democrat to light the infamous measure- to the death on patriotic grounds. Such precedent as its enactment cnu not be allowod, auil ir it is once on uio statute books, several years mny clspse before it can be repealed. Greenville's rosiofllce An Appeal special of tho 19th lust., relative to the Grccnvillo postolllce, says : "There Is not to be any change lu Greenville, Miss., poxtoflico in the near future, although Young, who seems to stand the best chance of se curing the plum, is very confident that there will be ono within a few weeks. Mr. Wortham, tho present iucumbcut, has considerably more thau a yenr to serve, and I am assured ou the best authority that Mr. Wanamaker is averse to making a change at prccnt aud seems to favor Wortham serving out bis term. However Headsman Clarksou is now Acting Postmaster General. Wanamaker being ahscut on his Summer vacation, and he nmy dis regard Wanamakcr's wishes aud seize the opportunity to cut off a Democrat ic head." On Fri-lay iiioniiiif,' Hip Ii iut, died at Arcote, his n -lili-ni-e, G u. Wm. L Iiraudou. There has parsed away one of the landmark of ihU section aud of the State, fur his history i largely the history of MiMniippl. Full of years ss hu Has full of honors, his birih aud early life dates back to our territorial days. From lis early man hood be was a promineut figure in all that concerned the interest and honor of Mississippi and ber citizens. He was a man of fine Intellect, cxtcusire cultivation,' and commanding pretence; trulv a typical Southern gentlemen ot the old time, no man In our commu nity so linked the preseut with the pat as did (n u. llrauaou. Jl ' m the soul of honor brave, chivalrous, npriiiht and ju(. When came Hie mil to arms, he was oue of the lir-t to an swer, sud cheerfully, he uiadu every sacrifice in behalf of the Southern Confederacy. Asa soldier and a man, be was truly without fear and with out reproach. Abler nens thau ours will lu due time do justice to the memory aud ex ailed characted of the illustriuus dead. Ilia eld comrade in arms, and the cit- ixeui of Wilkinson county mlugle their tears with those of his family aud ret at ires, for all loved and revered the name aud character of Gcu. Win. L Brandon.

After tho battle ofChlchamaugn, on account of bla ago aud crippled condi tion, togothor with a lecling that bo was in the way of the promotion of younger and more active officers, ho rosiguod his commission, but was sub sequently assigned Department dutici, with rank of llrlgadior General with boadipiaoteri at Enterprise, Miss., which position ho held aud tho duties of which bo discharged to tho conclu sion of tho war. A gallant olllcer, a gentleman of tho old school w hose heart was as tender as a woman's, tho words "sans peur ot sans reprocho'' express a lilting tribute to bis character as a mau aud a sohlior.
