Our flag.

--The new flag of the Confederate States is a favorite design with one of the greatest leaders of our army, as will be seen from the following dispatch to the Hon. Mr. Villere, of Louisiana:


Charleston, S. C., April 24, 1863.
To Hon. C. J. Villers:
--Why change our battle-flag, consecrated by the best blood of our country on so many battle fields? A good design for the national flag would be the present battle-flag as Union Jack, and the rest all white or all blue.
