There are many reinir.ifccon? e? ciuitcring around the es tate; and one I now i.p-poss to repeat, detailed to mo by the venerable and honored propiie tor. while we.together sat, about five years ago, on a fallen tree, at Arlington, near the gates never closed to the ttrarger and the dis tressed . Ahout thirty year# ago there came to Ar Imgten. in quact < f employment, a stout, w~ll fonnou man, whom we'.-hall call Ldwj.rd Byrne. He had left his wife nnd children in Georgetown* about three rules distant. Mr. | Custis, in a moment, perceived that the stran ger was addicted to intemperance. but thought that by a proper course of treatment, he could avail himself of his services as a me chanic. lie was by tr.ule a carpenter, and th? proprietor employed him in building dwell ings and barns on the estate. For month? Byrne pursued his occupation, consenting every week, to a curtailment of the allowance of ardent spirits. in those times deemed to be necessary to facilitate and give an additional spring to l^bor. So money was placed into his hands. The tailor and the shoemaker j were brought to him for his measure, and am p.c provision wa* made for all his comfort#. Ibe surplus of his wages, at the close of every week, was conveyed to his family. Mm. Byrne and her children had been re duced to want by the iuteuiperato habits of the husband and father, nnd it mav well be conceived that a remittance on Saturday was Well calculated to cheer the drooping hearts of the necessitous family. Soon, the means for sat isfying hunger, and decent apparel, and u few household comforts, were in their pos^ion: and smiles were onee more seen upon the face of the wife, and the merry laughter of the children was again heard; and the churoh and the Sibbath 8eh->l were by them not neg lected, as tn ibe twelvemonth pa.-rt. flow 1 many similar changes have taken place*? I | change- whi?h should make the heart rejoice But let us return to Arlington. The work j nf building was finished, and the employer and the mechanic were about to separate 1 he latter thanked the former for the interest he had evinced in his welfare; and Mr Custis volunteered seasonable advice Ned received It with tears; and with choked utterance and a clenched hand, extending it, as expressive of a determination to reform, said i%you shall nrvtr see ;,v again if 1 Ho not entire!*, ami for, rery rc up it, on# drink.''

Mine is an extensive one; laborious, but Pleasant.

In a few years, mouths, days, or hours, the places that now know me shall know me no more forever. Sorrow, anx iety, and tears, will have passed, and the crown of life, which is promised, I hope to obtain." r As he spoke, tears of joy glistened in his eyes; and, after a pause, Mr. Custis ventured to ask what was his present occupation. 4'A minister of the Gospel,* replied the Rev.

Axnie vu a beautifnl, bright-eyed, rosy cheeked little girl, ol five or six year* of age ; busy always ,u m bcc, happy and cheerful a* a cricket, and hnr sweet voiee rang out musical and clear :?s the song of the birds in spring t A great favorite was Annie. Her gen tie ai:'l affectionate ways, so simple, to sincere and truthful, made everybody love her. An nie's nun* had a fund of fairy stories, ?with which she filled the head of the little girl, who loved nothing so well a? to kit under tho thiok foliage of the honey-suckle and vine roses, that crept up all over the arbor in the garden, and listen to the tales of Fairy-land which the simple-minded num.* loved right well Vo be tolling. A little way. may be twenty rods, from the cottage in which Annie spent her tuminers, and within the eucl isure that surrounded it, wa? a beautiful spring, that oame up from among the roots of throe or four maple* that spread thtir l??pfy branches above it, making a pleasant sha ie in the heat of n'Wn. The water in the spring was two or three fe? t d"ep, and a clear cold stream wandered away from it, over a white pebbly bed, to the L --he thut lay a little way beyond. All around the spring, and stretching sway to the cot!ajcc, w?a .. gievi. lawn, aud Annie and her little visitors Ui? I to Lave plea-ant times, sporting and pinyii.g and running about on it, liko so mai.y lamb;. Annie would often look down into (ho ciyj-tul .-j iiug, aud wonder who it was dowu there, looking so sweetly up an J smiling so pleasantly nj?jn ner from the midst of the water1?1 iivw the tr^ea could grow so bright and green, standing. as it seemed to her, on their tops, away dowu in the earth. Her mother w is sometimes alarmed lest her little girl should f.il! ir tothe ?->ringand be drowned; but a g-.od Provi len>-o that takes care of little children, seemed to be always watching over her. The fairy taloa of her nnrse would, aome tim??. cone to Annie in her dreams, and would seem t<? he not like the stories of tho g*K*i nurse. but realities; and ?ho would sec and talk with tlie elfin thing*, as though she were awake ar'l they all around her. One day she wh" out in the garden. It was a pleasant af ternoon iu June, and she was running about, pulling a bWom here, a pink there, a violet trom this tuft and a r>-e from that bush, mak ing tip a bouquet, as little girls are very apt to do, when they get loose in a garden where all the sweet flower* grow. All at once, she heard a piercing little voice crying in great distres?; Annie' dear Annie! Hasten to me? Annie ' sweet Annie ! oh, set me free ! Here in the tangle thorn, Kver since break of morn. With pluma^eail soiled and torn. Helpless Tlie! Come, Annie ! Come to nv*? Haste, Annie ! set nie free 1 Help, or 1 die! Turning towards the place whence the voice deemed to come, Annie saw a little bird, like a robin, with plumage white as enow, that had got fast in the clustering and tangled branches of a thorn-bush that grew in the hedge. i?he parted the limbs and cutaway the thorns un til she could reach the p^r little thing, and then she took it carefully out of the bu-h aud held it to her bosom, and it seemed to fondle an.I nesiW. there as if it were so happy! Well, alter a whHe. Annie sat the little bird down on tho ground, end it hop}*?d gaily about, and chirped and tang so merrily, that Annio was wonderfully delighted; and this was the song ot the little bird, as it buttered its wings and hopped along, now in the path and now on the grass, all tue time moving towards the beautiful spring that came an from the rocta of tho maple titss that grow in the comer of ths lawn: Come with me. Annie, dear f Follow me, do not fear. Down where the maple* grow, Down where the water* flow, Come with ni !, there! There, in the fairy ring, There will we flowers bring. There will we dance and Mug?? Come with iue, dear ! Annie had never heard a bird talk, and yet she was neither surprised nor frightened, for her nurse hail told her a thousand stories about little birds' talking, and there was something so loving in the voice and the song, that she followed without once thinking that there was anything strange or to bo ?.fraid of. So the little bird hopped along before Annie, ail the time talking aud sieging, uutil they earn? to the spring, where Annie sat down ou the green grass, and tho little bird beside her. under tho shadow of the uiaples that grew over the foun tain that came bubbling up by their root*. All at once ti.cre was a great shout uot great for its loudness, like the shout of a greai. many strong-voiced mon, but of a thousand tiny littlr* voices not louder than tho cricket's, but sweet and joyful a> the music of harps, ull among the mjreading lrarohe* of the trees above her ho looking up. Annie saw thous ands of little people, not larger than her thumb, clustering and swarming like bees on all the branches, aud among the leave*uf the m spies. They had little wings like the hummiug-bird's, and they were so beautiful, and sang no sweetly ' Presently thty all oame dowr. upon the green grass, aud danced and sang around Annie and the little bird; and it was & pleas ant thing to see how lively and merry and happy the elfin things were. After a while they gathered around the spring, and one after another dropped in until tuey were all gone, and the little white bird followed them?ami Annie heard their sweet voices growing fainter and fainter until they died away, down in the depths of the fountain. Annie was grieved to see these littlo people and the boautn'ul white bird g j down into the water, uud t^ars gathered in her eyes when she thought they were alldrowned. Presently a chorus ot' voices like iho sounds of a music box, came up Trom the fountain, faint and far oft at first, but coming nearer and nearer, till it seemed right in the spring, at her feet, and she heard the song of thousands upon thous ands of sweet little voices : .bear Annie : Dry your tears Sweet AnnieBanish fear*, Down is the crystal spring Hear bow we fairies sing, List to our lay Here 'neath the sbadv bowers Fragrant with breath of dowers, fciport we and P'ay Come with us, Annie, dear, Coiue with us, do not fear, Come with us home Down in the crystal spring, Down where we Fairies sing, Come Annie! Come 1 Annie stepped to the fountain, and, looking down, saw away below her what seemed to be ? magnificent garden, filled with all kinds of beautiful (lowers, and there were delightful paths and afbors, aud summer houses and green la^ps. and inounda covered with pinks and violet#, and a hundred other sweet posies, and there were pleasaut trees all covered with f;reeu foliage, and gny blossoms waving grace ully in a gentle breeie. Annie longed to go down to the Fairies' Home, but she was afraid of the water. The little people, we said, had wings like the humming bird s, and they came swarming up by thousands out of the spring, gathering around her, and some took hold of her fingers, and some of her feet, and some of her arms, and some of her curls, bnt gently and nut so as to hurt her; hundreds put their little hands under her head, and they lifted her thus from the ground and bore her gently down into the fountain, the waters parting ao that not a thread of her garments were wet; and down'. down! softly and gently they bore her. until they came to the midst of the fairy garden beneath the spring. And a beautiful place it was. Her* was ?very fiyuer that ever bloomed in any garden in the w^rld; ever pleasant shade tree; every kind of delicious fruit: and every tree that J blossoms; and there were walks, reaching ?W?; *Bd away ia the distaste, trvNUg eaeh other. and winding around among the shrub bery with the long branches of the shad* Intertwined and arching above them Therw were green lawn* shorn smooth. and wit aa velvet beneath the footfall, and there were trigbt fountains sparkling and playing in every direction, and the trees were all alive with merry and sweet-voiced birds, hoofing, sing ing, and carolling among the branches. It was nut lighted by the sun, for it was away down ta tno earth, but b? a great diamond that gave out s light. brighter than tb? *nn, that was reflected back by thousands of iire cioua stones nwiy upin the vaulted ixxif. wnuh flowed f nd sparkled like the stars of heaven et nirht. When the litUe people who bad borne Annie from the earth above, sat her d<>wn in the midst of this beautiful place, thousands of others nnie flocking around her, clapping their little hands in joyful welcome, and some kissed her upon the mouth, and some ou the chin, and fr me on the ch?*ek. and s >uie on the eye J, r.irl stime on the forehead, and ?>rno on the neck, *ud they all seemed so rej -ieed that she hud come down to their fairy home. Pre sently they gathered into a ring and j ilx in* hand? in a ? irele aboui her. aroun 1 aud around they went in a merry da^e as If seething wonderfully delightful had h'>ppaoed , and m they circled a^out her, this was i-Utir sjug: llappv are we !

After a little while they came clustering around her again, and tbw blomnms, and little flowers, and wreaths, and chaplets, and nosegays, caine falling into her lap and upon her shoulders, and on her head, liko wow-flakes, till she was well nigh smoth ered l>y the joyful kindness that the elfin thing* bestowed upon her. All the time the garden was full of music. Every leaf, and every flower, ami every bloesom seemed to be like a harp-string, soft to be sure, but full of sweetness and melody, aud the a-rng of tho little peplc came echoing b?ek from the treecy and sumb*. ar.d flower*, a? they sang : Above hi the tanirled thorn. With pl'ima^e all soiled and torn. There lay our Queen. There wiiere the prowlers c reep. There wnere the serpents sleep, Lo?t h id she been llid Annie not heard her moon, And to her relief had flown, S. tting her free And here In oar Fairy home. Where no care has ever coaie, Sorrow would be. And th<*n with a merry shout, they allcrle4 : Welcome' welcome! Annie dear. Welcome to our revels here , Sweet Annie, we bless thee, Kinbrace, and caress thee Down 'neath tbe rrvstal spring, Here in our Fairv ring. Here where we dune*. und slag, Here In our home. Annie hnd not ?een the white-plum aged bird; but the Queen of tbe Fairies, larger than the other little ]?eople. with a diamond crown o? her head, and drossed in beautiful lawn and laces finer than the spider's web, and all be spangled with preeious HtHe gnmsthat sparkled and flashed in the light of the great diamond, came to her with a smile like a sunoeam. and kisaed her on the cheek, and then she knew that the beautiful white-plumaged bird thai she released from the tangled tbornbush, wia nunc other than the Queen of the Fairies. Just then when little Annie was ?o happy, she heard the voice of her mother eaMing her, and she started up from the cushioned seat in the summer house, upon which she hsd been asloep. and found that the little white-plum aged bird. ?nd the little people, and the song* of the fairies, and the beautiful garden dowu beneath the spring. and the great diamond and the music of the blossoms and fl<.>wurs. and the Fairy Queen, were all a dream.
