Cappanousic, Gloucester Co.,Va., August 30, 1861.
I have just returned on a visit from Gloucester Point.
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. Taliaferro presented it in behalf of the ladies, and in a few patriotic remarks explained the motives which induced them to make such a presentation.
Mr. John T. Bray accepted, in behalf of the Troop, (of which he is a member,) and in a short and eloquent address assured them that they would stand by that "bright, blue banner," until their last man expired; and the several toasts were responded to by Capt. Jeff. Pope, Major Early of Alabama, John.
T. Seawell, Major T. S. Taliaferro, Lieut. Clopton, Capt. Garrett, and Professor Hogg. Jackson.
