the Confederate flag. Not once did the cowards fling to the breeze a banner that would indicate their nationality, but, on the contrary, deceived us by hoisting, on one or two occasions, when we pressed them close, a Confederate flag they had found in Churchill's deserted camp. They also, on every occasion as we approached them, cried, "don't fire, we are friends!" This they did as our regiment first advanced, and then, as soon as our men threw up their pieces, perfidiously fired into us. They also had got hold of our badge — a red one on the left shoulder; they also passed our men several times to gain a new position, crying, "hurrah for Jeff. Davis." This was remarked all over the field, and if they had not done it, but few would have escaped being prisoners. This is opposed to all rules of civilized warfare, and worthy only of the blackness of Abolition hearts; and Gen.

It is easy enough to see why a man goes to the poorhouse or the penitentiary. It's becaws he can't help it. But why he should woluntarily go and live in Washington is entirely beyond my comprehension, and I can't say no fairer nor that. I put up to a leadin hotel. I saw the landlord and sed, "How d'ye do. Square?" "Fifty cents, sir," was his reply. "Si
asion of the Federal victory at Chicamacomico the Norfolk rebels searched all passengers, and would not permit a newspaper to come North. But whether founded in truth or not, the report of the naval engagement at New Orleans has produced a temporary effect here and is likely to do the same in Europe. Connected in the public mind with this news is the announcement that, just before the sailing of the Nashville, two members of the British Parliament were in diplomatic communication with Jefferson Davis. One of these gentlemen denies the charge, but admits that he carried open letters, which only serves to strengthen on the first impression in regard to his visit to the rebel capital. The recent declarations of British journals and statesmen in favor of a permanent division of the United States into two Confederacies, corroborate this view of the mission of Sir James Ferguson. And in the news by the Glasgow, which we published yesterday, it was stated that Mr. Lindsay, M. P. at
