July 7.6, General Israel Putsamn
lor6 " Okld Puat"--unfurled a flag at
m idge, Mass.,; on thejoy3hl occasion of
the reception in that townof the Deolats
tion of ndoependce bearing the mottod on
each side,"An of Heaved;" and on
the other " Qu* uaint." This
flag was dung to the'breeze amid the roar of
cannon and the shouts of the people. It is
said at the time that " the Philistines on
Bunker's Hill heard the cheers of the srae
lites (Israel Putnam,) ad being fearftl, pr
aded themselves in battle array." The fag
was a red one-the signal of defiance or bat
tie since the days of the Romans.
In september, 1755, Collonel Moultrie
unfurled a large blue flag with a crescent
in one corner. This was the first Ameri
can flag displayed in South Carolina, and
was used at the taking of Fort Johnstown,
on James Island. The crescent is the em
blem of sovereignty.
A standard,.ith a white ground, a pine
tree in the middle, and the motto, "Appel to
Heaven," was adopted in October, 1785, as
the flag of the floating batteries.
On January 2, 1776, the day that gave
birth to the new American Army-theflla
designated as "The Great Union standard,
was hoisted. This was the basis of that of
the present day.
In 1776 was add e standard to be
used by the Co i n-Cheif of the
American Navy, " a lively represent
ation of the rattlesnake in the middle, in
theattitude of striking." Underneath were
the words, "Don't tread on me."
The same year the crusiers of the Colony
of Massachusetts hoisted a white flag with a
geen pine tree, and the motto, ",/pealto
July 14; 1777, Congress passed the fol
Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen
United States be thirteen stripes, alternate
ly rod and white, that the union be thirteen
stars, in a blue field; representing a now
This was the origin of the national flag
of the United States-the glorious " Stars
and Stripes"-which have proudly waved
since that day over many of the greatest
victories of modern times; that stirs the
blood of every true heon rted citizen whenever
or wherever he beholds it floating on the
lireeze-that waves in every part of the
world, and that is everywhere respected,
on sea and on shore.
The above resolution was made public
September 2, 1777. According to Col.
Trumbull the flag made in pursuance of it
was first used at the surriender of Burgoyne,
October 18 of the same year. This was a
glorious beginning, truly, for this was one
of the mostimportant victories of the Amer
ican arms during the Revolution.
The first change in the national colors
was directed under the following enactment
of Congress adopted January 18, 1794.
Be it enacted, &c., That from and after
the first day of May, 1795, the flag of the
United States be fifteen stripes, alternate
red and white. That the Union be fifteen
stars with a blue field.
This was the flag of the United States
during the war of 1812-'14.
In 1798 the flag of the United States
was again altered. On the suggestion of
lion. Mr. Wondover, of Now York, a re
turn was made to the thirteen stripes, as it
was anticipated that the flag would become
unwieldly if a stripe was added on the ad
mission of each state, and moreover, by the
plan proposed, the Union of the old thir
teen States, as the number of States com
posing the Union would he represented by
the flag of the United States. Mr. Wen
dover also proposed the arrangement of all
the stars in the union into the form of a sin
The resolution of 1818 was as follows.
Resolved, That, from and after the 4th
day of July next, the flag of the United
States be thirteen horizontal striphs, alter
nate white and redr That tihe union he
twenty stars, whitoe in a blue field.
And that, on the admission of a new
State into the union, one star be added to
the union of the flag; and that such addi
tion should take effect on the 4th of July
succeoding thie ahminion.
Thie flag planted on the National Palace
in the city of Mexico had thirty stars in
the union. It is now depositedl in thie l)eo
partmetnt of State at Washington.
The union of the flag of the United States
iow contains thirty-one stars.

SOUTHERN QUARTERLY REVIEW.
' SHE FOLLOWING RESOLUTION was
1 adopted by the Southern Commercial Con
vention, hehld in Charleston, in April, 1854.
REsor.vzn, That the Southern Quarterly Re
view, published in the City of Charleston, by
a native of Virginia, and edited by one of
the most distinguished literary gentleman of
the South, being the only Periodical of that
character, printed and published in the Sou
thern States, and having always defended the
institutions anid interests of the South, is en
titled to the patronage of the Southern peo
ple, and this Convention earnestly recom
mend it to their favorable consideration.
This Periodical is the only one of its class in
the entire region of the South; and its pages
are referred to as the best evidence of the abil
ity of the South, and its capacity to give ex
pression to the feelings, the interests and intel
ligence of this section of our country. Its
purpose is to fairly represent ourselves, and not
to misrepresent others. It aims to maintain
the truth as we understand it, and to assert
the intellectual equality of our section, while
at the same time it will free the mind of our
people from that literary thraldrom and de
pendence under which they have too long la
bored. We claim then, from all lovers of the
South, and friends of a truly home literature,
that support of our work which will enable us
to give it a free course, and thus make it emi
nently worthy of the world's admiration and
our own pride. C. MORTIMER, Publisher.
