The black flag.

We have information that the authorities of South Carolina have communicated with Government upon the subject of "hoisting the black flag," to which allusion has been made since the attack upon the coast of that State. It is believed that General Lee has received orders from the War Department, urging that those captured must be regarded as prisoners of war, which will be disregarded by the authorities of South Carolina; and that the same course will be pursued which Governor Wise adopted at the time of the john Brown raid upon Harper's Ferry — when we are done with the Invaders, the Confederate Government may have them.
