"I do not know anything about them; I understand that there is some talk ?i:and. fear on this line. About the first independents that came out were those in Isle of Wight, when Colonel Day. ?i/Mr.?' Martin's father-in-law, bolted his ' own convention and Jumped so far that rjs; he even demanded a primary. If a dls- j iperise of this kind breaks out, it will bei ;i; because of the dissatisfaction of the I people on account of the way they have ] been treated.

THE OLD GRAY'S FLAG RECEIVED AT LAST. Petersburg, Va., Sent. 6.?When Pe? tersburg was evacuated by the Con? federate forces on April 3, 1865, the first Federal troops to enter the city was the First Regiment of Michigan sharp? shooters, commanded by General Geo.

Ever since the close of the war this flag has been in the military museum of the State Cnpitol of Michigan. Re? cently the State Legislature of Michi? gan, through the efforts of General Stone, passed a bill, which was signed by the Governor of the State, per? mitting the return of the flag to Us rightful owners. Yesterday a. telegram was received by Captain J- A. Nichols from General Stone stuting that he and a committee of three would arrive in Petersburg this morning at 9:30 o'clock with the Grays' flag. At a meeting of citizens, held last night, arrangements were made for the proper entertainment of Cienoral Stone and those accompanying him, and also for the reception of the flag.
