The black flag at Charleston.--A Richmond correspondent of the Petersburg Express says: The spring of hope must now, with the Yankees, die upon the winter winds. Already has the black flag been hoisted upon the soil of South Carolina, and war to the knife, the knife to the hilt, and thence to the shoulder, been proclaimed by her noble sons as the only booty which Yankee hireling invaders shall receive at their hands. This is right — it is the only way to conquer a peace with a people so lost and degraded as those which compose the grand army of the Rump Government.

We look anxiously for news from the sunny South; hopefully, prayerfully; with no misgivings. Now that the rallying cry is “no quarter to the invaders of our soil,” may we not believe that the course inaugurated by South Carolina will be followed up by our whole army, and thus end this war? “So mote it be.”
