      A Novel Flag. - As a testimony of the high esteem and strong faith entertained by the officers and crew of the propeller B. F. WADE, both as regards to her sea-going qualities, as well as her unsurpassed speed, a beautiful flag is being gotten up in this city for presentation to that
fine steamer, which will be in complete readiness for the occasion to-day, at Port Huron. The ground of the banner will be white, on which are represented a circle of red and blue stars, and in the center thereof, in large red letters, the words, "Put Up or Shut Up" are conspicuously shown.
Excellent taste has been displayed in workmanship, which was executed by Messrs. Hoffner & Mayes, of this city.
