Flag Presentation

LOUISVILLE, Feb. 25. – the 9th Ohio and 2nd Minnesota regiments this afternoon received two spending flags from the loyal ladies of Louisville in commemoration of their victory at Mill Spring, January 19th.  Considerable enthusiasm was added to the presentation.

A deserter from the rebel army arrived at Mumfordsville to-day, reports the national flag floating over Nashville, and that the rebels pretend to be concentrating 20,000 men at Murfreysboro [sic] intending to give battle there.
