Secession flag.

--A Palmetto flag, of light ground, with a Palmetto tree in the centre of it, arched over by a galaxy of fifteen stars, indicating the Union of the Slave States, and a rattlesnake coiled around the trunk, was exhibited in this city yesterday, and is to be raised on a tall pole, near the Custom-House on the 7th of January. We see on the streets, every day, strangers with blue cockades on their bosoms and hats, indicating their desire for secession. A few evenings since, a party of gentlemen appeared at a hotel supper table with scarlet rosettes on their bosoms, but we did not learn what their political opinions were, or why the scarlet color was adopted.
