--An interesting flag presentation took place at the War Department last evening.
A courier from General Lee
's army entered the office of the Secretary of War
, bearing ten Yankee battle-flags, when the following dialogue occurred:
, here are some more of the same sort of old battle-flags I have been bringing you from time to time.

--Take them to the least crowded of the four-acre lots where we keep such lumber, and see if you can manage to make room for them; if not, you must carry them to Castle Thunder.
