An immense crowd gathered there to-day to witness the presentation of a most beautiful flag to the Gloucester Light Dragoons from the patriotic ladies of this county. It was a beautiful blue banner, bearing on one side the coat of arms of Virginia, and on the reverse the words "From beauty's hand to valor given. " Major Thomas S.

Jeff. Pope, Major Early of Alabama, John. T. Seawell, Major T. S. Taliaferro, Lieut. Clopton, Capt. Garrett, and Professor Hogg. Jackson.
