I was obliged to make my few preparations in the most hurried manner, and having commended my family to God, I proceeded to report myself to my captors again. I found on my return that a large number of citizens had been picked up, among the rest, General Asa Rogers, a gentleman over sixty years of age, and Rev. O. A. Kinsolving, of the Episcopal church. We were moved off, I suppose, about 2 P. M., and proceeded to Aldie, about thirteen miles. Here we halted, and immediately the men scattered to plunder, and every hen-roost in the village was despoiled in a few minutes.

History of the Confederate flag. [The following has been kindly furnished by the widow of Major Rogers, through the Rev. Arthur B. Kinsolving, D. D., of Brooklyn, N. Y. The gallant designer of the final Confederate flag was a son of General Asa Rogers, a graduate of the University of Virginia, and a lawyer in lucrative practice. He died soon after the conclusion of the war at Middleburg, Va., in the 38th year of his age.—Ed.] The lowered banner of the Stars and Bars is furled forever. General Asa Rogers, a graduate of the University of Virginia, and a lawyer in lucrative practice. He died soon after the conclusion of the war at Middleburg, Va., in the 38th year of his age.—Ed.] The lowered banner of the Stars and Bars is furled forever. No longer the symbol of a struggling people, nor as one day we hoped to look upon as the flag of a nation, The Confederate States of America! free and independent. But our flag has a history, and the time has come when, to preserve that history from oblivion, some record should be made of it. The author of the new design adopted by the Confederate Congress was Major Arthur Lee Rogers.

ey ever be compelled to undergo the "trial by battle" Carried. Several communications were received from Governor Letcher in response to resolutions of inquiry, but containing nothing of interest. One of these covered a communication from Asa Rogers, of Londoun, informing the Governor that a Black Republican, named Downey, was elected in his Magisterial District a Justice of the Peace; that he ought not to be commissioned, and that if he were he, Rogers, would emigrate to Hayti before he wRogers, would emigrate to Hayti before he would sit on the bench with him. The communications, with their enclosures, were ordered to be printed. Pursnant to a resolution authorizing the Governor to institute the inquiry, a letter from Secretary Mallory of the Confederate Navy was read, giving the names of officers in the Provisional Navy of Virginia who were either undergraded or not appointed in the Confederate Navy. We believe this communication should have been reserved for a secret session. And therefore refrain from copying
he leader of a mob which destroys a printing office, or the President or General who silences free speech by a squad of soldiers, "is the rhetorical, phrase polishing demagogue, who, safe in his study, without personal risk or official responsibility, prostitutes his talents to the overthrow of public freedom and the corruption of a people who look up to him as a patriot and a counsellor." Of the authenticity of this letter there can be no doubt. The copy before us is certified by Gen. Asa Rogers, Presiding Justice of Loudoun county: [Copy.] Camp at Cambridge, Aug. 29th, 1775.
