Mr. Herbst is Librarian of the Macon Library Association, and his enthusiasm for everything pertaining to the Confederacy, together with his intelligent zeal, has enabled him to gather a very interesting and valuable collection of war material, while there is no danger that the young men of Macon who come in contact with him will ever forget the boys in gray. The library (Captain Park, the late President, has been succeeded by Major Chesney, formerly of General Elzey's and General Ewell's staffs) is one of the institutions of Macon, and is very justly the pride of the city. It is, of course, a subscriber to our Papers, as all libraries ought to be. The army of Northern Virginia Memorial volume has been delayed by causes over which the compiler has had no control; but the printing is now all done, and it will be ready for delivery just as soon as it can be gotten from the binders — in a few days, we hope.

read the colors to the breeze. It was the Confederate flag — the stars and bars! It was Early with the Twenty-fourth Virginia, the Seventh Louisiana, and the Thirteenth Mississippi. The column had by this time reached the extreme right of the Federal lines. The moment the flag was recognized Beauregard turned to his staff right and left, saying, See that the day is ours! and ordered an immediate advance. In the meantime Early's brigade deployed into line and charged the enemy's right — Elzey, also, dashed upon the field — and in one hour not an enemy was to be seen south of Bull Run. While on this field and suffering this terrible anxiety, General Beauregard determined that the Confederate soldier must have a flag so distinct from that of the enemy that no doubt should ever again endanger his cause on the field of battle.
