It was m little girt, apparently about ten years of age, her long curls falling in a bright, tangled mass about her small, sorrowful-looking face, while her large blue eyee were fastened with a kind of panting eagerness upon my own. Yes, that Is my Dime. And what do you want with me, my little girlV I queried, greatly surprised at this singular encounter. " O. sir, ao you remember a little boy whom you met one evening last winter, who teid you he had a sister Nelly, and " The mystery was at once cleared up. *' Yes, yes, I remember it all," I interrupted. ? A *t/4 vau mm Vallw T '' anJ T vey?>l the child with enhanced interest. Her ragged KurmenU, tar pale face, bore very legible bi?tory?a history of sharp poverty and bitter suffering. 14 O, I am so glad?so rery glad, air!" and the light that broke into her careworn features was beautiful to behold 4> I was almost sure it must be you when the gentleman called jour name, and you look just as Willie .?aid you did. O. sir, I hare looked and watched, and waited for you so many days, that I had almost given up hoping." 44 Poor child! I nave been out of town, or I would have come to you aa I promised. But where is Willie now? and what do you want with me'" I was well nigh ashamed after the latter question was asked, her poreciy answered it to plainly. 0. sir, Willie is sick, Very sick; and his isce ioo*s s<r wnite and strange lately, I fear lie is goin^ home to mother sometimes. You see I get tatter after 70a sent me the oakes and ornttgfes. and Willie bought me some medi cine witb the money you gave us. and we paid the rent six months, so the woman let us stay th're. Bat one day, a month ago, Willie was Out all day in the cold rain selling paper*, and he's been growing worse and worse, and he's ao altered you'd nardly know him. But he wanted to see you so badly, and he talks about it all the time in his sleep, and for the last two or three days he's grown almost wild about it. and so I've been out keeping watch for you all day; and I couldn't bear to go home at night, for Willie would spring up in the bed and ery out so loud, " Nelly, have you seen him ?" and when I >hnnk would lin rlnwn with euch a look that I would go off in one corner and crj all alone, it made my heart ache so to Fee it. Bat now Willie will be so glad ! 0, please, sir, won't you go and see him ?" I see. H attic that yeur eyes are growing moist with tcare, and if you could have heard the simple touching pathos with which that fair child told her sad story, you would have answered as I did. ' Yes, Nelly, I will go now." * *> ' Willie, Willie, I've brought him! I've brought him!" The little hand which guided me so carefully ap the dilapidated stairs was withdrawn as the little girl broke into that old attio chamber, ler eager and joyous tone^ making the bare wails ring again? " I've brought him ! I've brought him The dying daylight looked with a sweet, ?<>lemn smile into the room, whose entire des titution one glance revealed to me. I had not lime for another, for a child's head was lifted from a miserable mattress in one corner. I came forward, a pair ef attenuated arms was a j a ..J 4l l. : rtrwicucu uub, iuu iuuw largo, ouroiDR ojc* were fastened a moment on my face, u though Jife and death rested upon their testimony. " Yet. yea, I knew yon would come at last, ' *nd the little cold arms were wrapped around my neck. " 0, I hare watched and prayed, and hoped so long*, and it seemed to me as if you would never come; but I knew jou would to-day, for last night mamma came to me, looking so beautiful, with the flowers woven all around her head, and a white robe flowing down to her feet, and she smiled so sweetlj and said: " 1 My little Willi*, he will come to you to morrow. and his eoming will be a signal, for then T. too. shall come for Ton." My tears were filling fast on the boy's brown curls, but a sharp pang reached my heart as he ?poke these woras. ' No, do. Willie, you were only dreaming," 1 said, as I lifted upVa heed and looked at hira anxiously. One glance into the rigid face told me enough?the mother had indeed oome for her child. " Bend down, quick," murmured the boy's white lips. " Nelly will be alone when I leave her; for there's nobody to teke care of her, you see. and I want to give her to yeu. You are kind and good?I know yoa will take care of her, aad never let hor suffer; and mamma will look down from her home in Heaven and bless you for it all; and may be we shall er me some time to take joa to as. Yoa will promise me this, won't yoa ??quick, for I can't see yoa end his glazing eyes wandered over my face. " Yes, Willie, I promise it to God, to yoar mother in Hearen, and to yoa," I answered solemnly. " Nelly, you have heard what he seid?he will take eare of you. Kiss me once more, little sister. There, there, mother has come for m? Good bye!" i ue iiiuc ?viu uugio 9uu|m iur our aanai and drew them together?a smile wandered over the stark, rigid face, and the last light of that May-day looked into that bar* attic,where the beautiful child waa lying on the oold mat treaa. "0, air, ia he dead ?" questioned the little girl, with her large. pathetic ejea wandering frost the dead face to nay own. My looks aaswered her, for my lips oould n0t" ?i" - "Willie, Willie, comeback, comeback to mi'" she cried oat in a voice whose exceed ing anguish will haant my memory, will haunt my heart till it haa grown oold aa the one thai then lay beaeath ma, and little Elian Eram lay aa seneeleM aa bar brother in my arms. Two days later, in a pleasant part of thi cemetery, the May violets war* turned aside and a child'a coffin laic, beneath them For nine spring tides have they laid their crimsoned mantle over hia bright head, and the shadow of a marble monument haa fallen softly over them. Upon thia ia acolptared a beautiful ohild, and an angel with outanread wings ia bending orer him, and pointing up ward Underneath ii grareo, "His mother came for him at twilight." It waj with ma subject of much perplexity where to plaee the lovely child, whom I always felt that Providence had especially intrusted to my care, I wai all ahe had on earth to lore, and aa time brought ita soothing halm to her heart, the whole affection of her deep warm nature was poured on me, and even then with the exception of yourself, ahe lay cloeer within the foldings of my heart. For % Uttle while I placed her in the country, among simple people,whoee curiosity would be readily appeased; for I waa exceedingly desi rous that the world should never become cog nuant ox ue pari x usa oorae id ner uie-Bis tory I read well her sensitive nature, ud I knew there might come a time in her litter life when it would cause her mach annoyance and mortification if the world know our eooret. Por thin reason, sweetest and dearest of Me ters, I did not oommuniontn to yon till I had obtained her permission, which I sought in my lut interview with her. I oould, of eouree, have received this at any timo, had I ehoeen to seek it; hut I thought it would bo unfair to obtain bar consent In this matter before her mature judgment had ratified iL After muoh deliberation. I reeelred to oon fide Elian's history to Mrs. Whittleaby, the lady with whom I boarded, and in whom I placed entire Confidence She listened with intense interest, and bar womanly ijmpnthias vara at onoe enlisted in ixhalf of ay protege. Bosidee this, she was a widow and <m:ilea?; and though by no meam wealthy, bar circumstances were mch thai aba could summed Ellen with everything neces sary to her well-being and bappioe*.* She proposed to adopt her in the place of the children Hod had taken from her; and to this proposition I joyfully assented, for there the religieus, social and home atmosphere would be ell that I wished to be aboot my Ellen. I was anxious, too, that she should no longer be dependent upon me, for I thought even a time might come when I should ask her a ques tion, whose answer I would have in no wise resisted by her gratitude for the nast. You have often, little sister, heara me speak of Ellen Evans, Mrs. Whittlesey's adopted daughter; but you little dreamed that I had s great personal interest ia all that pertained to hetr. Uer character and person have developed with inore than all that rare loveliness which her childhood promised. The sister that 1 shall bring you, Hattie, is an elegant, accom plished, talented woman; and more than all that?and the young clergyman's eyee grew lustrous with the almost holy light that beemed oat from their darkness?my Ellen has the or nament of a meek and quiet spirit, which ii above all price. And now, my Hattie, you have heard her history, will you not welcome her to your heartr I guessed well the pang which the knowl edge of my engagement would give you; for as brother and sister have seldom loved do we love each other, and I know it must seem like bringing another to take your place. But my Ellen is very gentle, and she will never come between us. She knows, too, the story of our orphaned youth, and of our affection for each other; and even now her heart goes out with great love after you. " Tell her all," she said to me in that last interview, "and tell her that wunoui ner consent x aare not oecome youi wife." When I return to her, and her ques tioning eye* ask me if I have obtained it, oil I toll her jou are ready to love and to wel come her to our home ? And Hattie Marshall lifted her brown, tear filled eyes to her brother's fa?e, and answered, "Tell her, Weldon, that my heart is waiting to welcome her to a vacant place?and it ii the one Ay veur suit FROM THE REBELLIOUS STATES. The following items are from the Memphis Appeal of the 1st: MISKIKSirn VOLUNTEERS The Panola Stir states that the Missiauppi Legislature has passed an act to raise 10,00(1 volunteers for the defense of the State, \nd il a sufficient number do not volunteer, then thej are to be drafted. Also, that the Senate ol that State had pasted a bill calling a conven tion ef the people of that State. TEXAS 1NKANTRY Col.

The Jourual says the " regi ment is a fine looking body of men, well armed and clothed, and full of teal and enthusiasm. Wo unto the Yankees who may be so unfortu nate as to meet with these brave and dashing fellows." EXCITEMENT AT SAVANNAH.

He would at oace enter the service agaii under Gen Beaoregard. * STASD riBM AT COLCKBCS. A long article is taken from the NewOrleam Delta, snowing that the safety of the wholi South depends on the result of the battle a Coiumbos. It says that place once taken then can be no effectual resistance at ether points. ?!*VKLOr*8. The Memphis Appeal recommends, on ac count of the great scarcity of envelopes, turn ing old ones wrong side out, and using them after pasting them together again. DRAFTING. An article from the Knoxville Register mji all the soldiers found retreating from the lat< battle through the country are at once arrested and will be drafted into regiments. ANOTHER SAVANNAH RUMOR. The Savannah Republican, of the 30th, sai< a fleet of steamers went down the river am back, and were unmolested by the Yanke< fleet. Seventeen Federal vessels were seen ii the Sound, and heavy firing had been hcari . there.

INTEKKSTINO PAETICCLAES OF THE FIGHT. Cincinnati, Feb. 7.?The Gazette and Com mercial Cairo correspondents give the following Interesting account of the bombardment and cap ture of Fort Henrv: Yesterday, at 12 o'clock 30 minutes p. m., the gunboats Cincinnati, St. Louis, Carondelet and Esnex, the Tyler, Conestogaand Lexington bring ing up tbe rear, advanced boldly against the rebel works, going to tbe right of Painter Creek Island, Immediately above which, on the eaat side of th? river, stands the fortifications.
