BROWN, (SON OF B. F. BROWN) - B. F. Brown, Esq., late one of our county Commissioners left here this week for Alexandria, Louisiana--high up red River--for the purpose of bringing home the remains of his son, a soldier, who died at that place during the memorable Banks expedition to that point. The journey is a long one, but Mr. B. who is an excellent man of fine feelings could not be content to let the remains of his beloved and patriotic son, who was also a very worthy young man, rest in that far off clime. We wish him success in his undertaking and a safe return.
