What they say of us.
--There have been many things said about the people of Richmond
during the present crisis, doubtless emanating from some correspondent of Northern newspapers, which are as destitute of truth as the inventors are of sense or character.
The last yarn of this nature that we have seen, is copied from a Boston paper, as follows: ‘"At the Richmond (Va.)
Theatre, not long since, an actress undertook to sing 'Hail Columbia,' or 'The Star Spangled Banner,' but was promptly hissed down.
She then came forward, bearing the stars and stripes, and sang the Southern Marseillaise
, during which she threw down the flag and"’ trampled upon it. ‘"This, it is added, won tumultuous applause."’ The people of Richmond
know the whole thing is a point blank lie. We may state, further, for the information of Northern sensation journals, that the stars and stripes still wave over the Capitol
, and will continue to wave until the State
secedes from the Union
Then the flag of the Southern Confederacy will be hoisted in its place.
