Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.
secession flag Raising.


Hanover Academy, Hanover Co., Va., April 5, 1861.
The third was a great day up here for the students. The Easter holidays afforded us an opportunity of procuring a long-wishedfor secession flag. As soon as recitations were over, we flocked to the pole, and amid three hearty cheers, our flag was hoisted by Miss Jones, sister of the Principal, Mr. J. M. Boyd, A. M., then made a few, but appropriate remarks in behalf of the Faculty, and was responded to by a few young gentlemen of the school.
