A Battle Worn Flag.—The Adjutant of the 6th [?] Louisiana Regiment has left at this office the battle flag of that gallant corps. Lt is truly an eloquent memorial of glory. Its folds are in tatters, ripped and torn by a thousand bullets, through which they always floated victoriously. It has been through the battles of Middletown, Winchester, Strasburg, Port Republic, Cross Keys, Gaines' Mill, Malvern Hill, Cedar Mountain, Bristow, Manassas, Chantilly, Harper's Ferry, Sharpsburg, Shepherdstown and Fredericksburg.
There have been two color sergeants killed while bearing it; a third color sergeant and nine corporals of the color guard have been killed and wounded. The [illegible] T. T. Hays [?] The regiment has lost [illegible] commissioned officers killed and sixteen wounded, and is now commanded by Col. Wm. Mon[illegible], who was previously taken prisoner at [illegible]burg, and wounded at Chantilly. It has suffered heavily in the loss of men, but, as its ribboned flag and well earned reputation will attest, it has not suffered ingloriously nor in vain.
