The repeated echoes hail not died away, when, as If by the hand of a sorcerer, tun thousand flags and banners of bunting, of brilliant hue and large dimensions, wero thrown to the breezo, and floated gaily and joyfully over the City Hall, Custom House, and other public buildings. The hotels, newspaper offices, &c., Ac., were likewise handsomely decorated. The spacious building on the cornor of Fulton and Nassau stroets, known as the Herald ncwsrarer Establishment, was the great attraction In the lower part ofthe city. From the topmost story to the besement, it was resplendent with beauty and glory. One hundred and fourteen flags, large and small, military and naral, were suspended from it. Of thete, there was one whioh was much admired on account of its aged, tattered and worn appearanoe, as well as because it was used by Colonel Arculariue' military eecort of Washington's friend, General I.a Fayette, to Connecticut, wbbu that distinguished friend of the Father of his country, was visiting the United States in the year 1824.
