          A Flag-Raising at the �Courier� Office.
Will had come down by railroad, on his former
mission, sketching for F. Leslie, having miscar-
ried in an attempt to go by sea, the sailing day
of one of the steamers being postponed.    I had
an appointment with Carlyle, for whom we wait-
ed some time, and then went to Adams� Ex-
press Office, subsequently with young Mitchel
to that of the �Courier;� in the rear of the publish-
ing room across the small yard was a collation
or free lunch in honor of a flag-raising in front
of the office.   We had punch and champagne, but
Carlyle didn�t appear, so Waud Mitchel and I returned
uptownwards, to the Mills House, to Salzedo�s
