A CONFEDERATE FLAG. — We have before us a small confederate flag which was picked up by one of our soldiers on the field of " Falling Waters," and sent to Mr. Wheeler of the Sentinel. Mr. Draper requested it for the historical society, and "it has been promptly sent to him. It has ten white calico stars on a blue calico ground, and the rest of it is made up of three broad faint colored red, white and red bars. The most unprejudiced would say upon t*.-eing it that the work is abominable and the style poor. — Madison Patriot.
