Trophies of War.

--Six flags, captured from the Federals in the battle of July 21st, have been sent to Richmond from Manassas, and deposited in the Adjutant-General's office. Among them is a large U. S. flag, and another of blue silk, formerly belonging to a Michigan regiment. The stars and stripes and the American eagle, now the emblems of despotism, are conspicuous in the lot. Though no particular value attaches to the disgraced colors at this day, they will doubtless be preserved as mementoes of the Bull Run races. Some enterprising showman may hereafter seek them for the purpose of illustrating ‘"wax figures"’ of the convivial Congressmen who came out from Washington to see the fight and ran back precipitately.
