ft JUDGE KEY'S SPEKGIl AT CHATTANOOGA. The tallowing is the full text of Judge Key's speech at the Chattanooga banquet, on Decoration Day : Mt Friends: I centcss that my own life has been an eventlul one. Things have iallen upon me as by accident; and when the event to which you have so gracionsly alluded to-night, came upon me, my first inclination, as I have said before, was to refuse and promptly de cline the proffered honor. But, upon mature reflection, I concluded that it the President ot the United States desired, with a purpose of pacification, to extend to the people oi the South his hand through me, if I retuscd to take it the hopes, the interests, and the future of millions to como after might be thwarted and jeopardized. I put iorward my hand and grasped his. Applause. I knew that it the object succeeded, humanity would applaud, if it failed only myself and the President would suffer for the error. Applause.

A REMINISCENCE. The Cuxtaix of Mohammed's Death Bed Given His Followers kor a Battle Flag. The sacred emblem of Turkish iaith will play a great role in this war. it is dark green, about two yards long and one and a half wide, and was originally a curtain in the bed-chamber of Alecha, the best beloved wite ot the prophet, who died in her bed. When Mohammed was on his death bed and about to take leare ot his generals, who were about to enter upon anew campaign against the heathen, the dying prophet gave them the curtain that overhung his bed as a battle flag, so that the faithful should ever remember that they were doing bnttle for God and His prophet. Ever since that time, whenever the ca liphs went into battle, they took this flag with them, but, in later ears, it was re solved to carry this holy relic into battle only when a war ot religion waa being waged. In 18G3, the same flag waved from the walls ot Vienna, and again whenever the cause of Islam had to be defended, it was uniurl...
