A brave woman.

--We learn that when the Slote was captured, and the men from the Mohawk went to take down the Confederate flag, Mrs. Col. D. P. Holland rushing to and seizing it, wrapped it around her and dared them to touch it, protesting that she herself would die before it should be furied. Having presence of mind to burn the sloop's papers, when Mrs H. was asked for them she pointed to the stove. An she passed Fort William with the flag given to the breeze, a salute of one gun was fired. Long may she live to see the people of the South enjoy all the blessings of civil and religious liberty, under the ample folds of the Stars and Bars.--Tallahassee News, July 8.
