While they were hoisting the Stars and Stripes over the officers' Headquarters at Camp Curtin, near Harrisburgh, Pa., and just as the men had seized the halliards, a large eagle, who came from no one knew where, hovered over the flag, and sailed majestically over the encampment while the flag was run up! Thousands of eyes were upturned in a moment, and as the noble bird looked down, the cheers of three thousand men rent the air! Never was such ovation paid the Imperial bird of Jove. It lingered for a few moments, apparently not a particle frightened at the terrific noise, then cleaving the air with its pinions, he disappeared in the horizon.--Independent, May 9.
