Another cross in the sky. A well-defined cross was seen in the sky a few nights since. A correspondent of the Wilmington (N. C.) Journal, writing from Kingston, N. C., gives the following description of the phenomena: The moon rose cloudless. At a little before seven o'clock, two bright spots, some twelve degrees, (quarter in extent?) were visible, one north and the other south, and immediately thereafter a cross was seen in the heavens, the moon joining the four arms of the cross. About half-past 8 o'clock the northern light went out, but the cross and the spot to the south remained until past ten, when I retired. Can any one tell when the cross has appeared before since the days of Constantine, when the letters of I. H. S. accompanied the sign? The Jackson (Miss) Crisis, Feb. 23.

Standards, A flag or ensign round which men rally or unite for a common purpose; also an emblem of nationality. The practice of an army using standards dates from the earliest times. The emblem of the cross on standards and shields is due to the asserted miraculous appearance of a cross to Constantine, previous to his battle with Maxentius; Eusebius says that he received this statement from the Emperor himself, 312. The standard was named labarum. For the celebrated French standard, Auriflamme. The British imperial standard was first hoisted on the Tower of London, and on Bedford tower, Dublin, and displayed by the foot guards, on the union of the kingdoms, Jan. 1, 1801.
