fringed in yellow. The staff1 is of lancewood,
mounted in fire gilt, tipped with a silver spear
head, and so constructed as tq fold together
when not in use, Tho device of tho flag, ele
gantly embroidered, represents the military
arms borne by our New York contingent, the
shield containing in one half the State arms,

The "Tunpio WinCase. Judgo Dunlop
has given hit decision upon the question that
has been raised respet ting the right nf the Pres
ident of the United States to institute a block
ade of tho ports in tho kecedfd States, rocently
pending in the district court ofthu United States
lor this District. He decides thatthe blockade
proclaimed by President Lincoln "bn the 19th
of April last was lawfully established as one of
the rights incident to a state of civil war.
Upon the political or rather constitutional
aspects of the case, the decison of Judge Dnulop
would seem to be definite, though he still holds
uuder future advisement the ultimate determin
ation of a question of fact respecting such an
alleged relaxation of tho strict law of blockade
in favor of British ships as would have allowed
the Tropic Wind (the vessel involved in the
present cause) to load cargo and rome out of
port after having received information that the
blockade had been established.
Moke Prizes, Captain Budd, commanding

garded a warning given several days ago, aud
deceived Captain Budd by false statements, and
was found by Captain Budd concealed on the
Maryland side opposite to Matthias's Point, at a
place where it was convenient for crossing tho
Potomac. The Day belonged to the same owner.
Captain Budd has detained her for use at Nan-
jemoy, where just such a vessel is needed to
watcn the vicinity where sbe was taken. Ibe
Resolute is rendering efficient service as a Poto

Camp Shady, Second Battalion.
Editors of the Republican :
As some misrepresentations have been pub
lished in reference to our battalion, I thought
proper, as the opportuuity presented itself of
correcting some of tho rumors. Wo started
from Washington without any preparation f6r
a longer timo than seven days, and, of conrse,
are in a baa way tor clothes and other articles.
Yet we are on the alert for the enemy, and are
willing to stay here until our time is out. No
dissatisfaction exists, with the exception of one
of our officers, and he has been superseded.
Our battalion will never go hack as long as
danger exists. We will follow to the last our
gallant leader, Harry B. Curtis, who is loved
by every member of company A, of the Union
regiment, and almost idolized ou account of
his affectionate regard for his men. He has
beeu untiring in his exertions for the comfort
of his sick, and is more popular than any other
officer ever in service in our company. We will
follow him to the death, and we know, from ex
perience, be is the man to lead us where dan
ger is prominent.
Before I close my letter, I must mention our
much loved and respected lieutenant, Ward,
who is always ready lor seeing our men com-
lortnbly fixed aud provided for after a long
match. We know whnt he is made of, as we
aro out nightly on scouting expeditions, and the
only thing keeps us here is the kind treatment
of our much loved officer. Vf'e are in a dan
gerous place, us the enemy is ouly across the
river. We have some night alarms, Sic.
