National Flag and Streamer.--Mr. J. B. Platt, the well known manufacturer of Confederate flags in this city, yesterday hoisted to the peak of the flag-staff on the front of Platt & Co's establishment, a beautiful streamer--the first one every thrown to the breeze in this city. This streamer, with the handsome banner below it, attracted a good deal of attention and admiration yesterday.
