I have just come from makes me feel that I should like to be alone for a time. I am must thankful to say that the conversation 1 had with the poor fellow has done much to make him tesigneh He had heard Of me often before, he said, and on his table 1 noticed my little tract on resignation, which he told me, to use his own words, hud been a balm to his woan led spirit. Vr ry gratilying .was it not ? Good morting to you, my dear Lieutenant i good morning, my good men, Le added, as we raised our caps to him, and saw his kindly tacu turn towards hyme, "Before long the bell began to toll,' and as I went home to my dinner saw the sexton h uj at work at the grave, which at the skippers request was to be made on the side nearest ti,e sea and farthest from the village, since he told the vk'ar it would be so comforting, win n his ship passed by Klruin, 'to see the spot where his Mary Ann was sleeping.' "The report that thero was to be a funeral from the sirange ship in the oiling, spread like wildtire through the village, and halt an hour before the body was to leave the shin, the cliff wa-i crowded by the villagers, the women with their shawls lied over their heads, leading their children by their hands. v "Funerals are always a great at traction to our people, but since the last Karl at the castle was buried, none had caused so much merest as this. "'Poor Skipper Darley !' sas my old woman, 'won't he feel lonesome just, when he gets back to his ship without his missus ?' "'Werry,' says I, 'no doubt ; he ain't been married more nor two years. Lor, what a good sort of a fe male she must have been, all the crew seem so fond of her; look you heie, old lady, through the glass. D'ye see the ligure head of the vessel yon der?' "'Yen,' says she, resting the glass on my shoulder 'a figure ot w oiwan in green gown and ya ler hair.' "'That be no doubt, an exact iike uessof Mary Ann Darley,' says I; it's a very common pla , that, and as old Cap'n liist, . as commanded the Tilda years ago, used to say : "When ever I follows my wile, I goes rigf ; as I sticks her ul the end ol my wes sel, the Tilda allers goes right.'. 44 'Lor 1' says my wife, again looking through I lie glass, 'how beautiful Mrs. Mary Ann Darley must have been I Never did I sec such a bust, hair, and hearings. They are coming at last, the boats are Wing let down.' "The church bells tolled sadly through the kei n trusty air, And there was not a heart among all those on the cliff that did rut feel the deepest sympath) lor the widowed skipper. ".Slowly, and with a long measured stroke, came the two boats, into ihe fast of w kieb we hud noticed tke cof fin being lowered. "The bier had been taken down to ike shore so, when they had all landed, the coffin w as placed upon it, and borne up the gang way by four of the crew. "The other four came leJiifid ; the skipper, who appeared dreadfully sgi- Uied, lent heavily on the arm of the man with tlie big biKtons, , his face busied in his hauukerthief, from which ut times we could hear a deep sob. "Up the little street The procession went, and among all the women there was not an eye that was not filled w ith tears.

"llefore the appointed time I was at the Lieutenant's house; four of the coasi-guards wire seated round the kitchen fiie, each armed with a mus ket and cutlass. "'This is tor you,' said the Lieu tenant, handing me a cutlass and long pistol ; 'now lollow me.' "'Where are we to go to?' said I to the man with whom 1 had to walk. "'To church,' says he. "'To church ?' says I. 'What u rum go 1' "A ruin go, indeed,' says he; 'on ly it's orders not to talk, so don't ax more questions.' "It was a clear night, and the frosty tomb-stones looked like ghosts as we entered ihe church, the key of which Ihe Lieutenant had got. In a few minutes we were seated round the stove in the vestry, w hich we had lighted. A window wus just opposite where I was sitting I could see the light of the strange ship in the ofliug, and a few yards befoie us was the new made grave of the skipper's wife. "I think we must have sat more than three hours, when I noiieed the light on the ship, which it was my turn to watch, moving ; and through ihe night-glass I could see that about was being lowered into the sea! I called lite attentioil of ihe Lieutenant to this fact, who said, "All t ight," I thought so ; but, as they won't think of landing nearer than the ruins, w e shall have to wait some time yei, 1 11 he bound. j "In less than an hour Jrf'er this, just ns the clock was chiming twelve, : I distinctly saw four figures clamber- ; mg over the church wall.

(Southern News and Opinions. The Georgia Coii(itiitiniint of June 2'Jih discusses the military situ ation with extraordinary fairness, for a rebel paper. It thinks it quite lime to stop deluding the people of the Souih with false hopes ami to look ut affairs soberly. It is not able lo see anything amusing in the situation.. It concedes that Grunt has great ad vantages in his present position, iu fact lias the game in Li- own lau ds. and can put Lee under siege.

If President Davis con chides to swap cupitols, and Riving Grant Richmond, starts off aluad of him for Washington, we will have the army to subsist in desert waste be tween I he two capitals ; have (omake time on foot that will heat Ihe trans ports on the Potomac ami Chesa peake ; have the fortifications of Washington lo storm, and a siege to stand there should we get inside. We lose Richmond if we ho'tftjie Weldou and Danville railroads ; we lose the railroads if we save Richmond, or we attack Grant in his trenches if we try to save both. It is true that General 1'eauregard eowld still keep south ot Grant, and prevent raids into Caroli na, but could not keep him from stop ping the roads south, unless ho has enough men to attack Grant in re verse, and place him between two fires, W hope Grant thinks he has. This is a gume with no possible kind ranee, perfectly plain to even such unmilitary comprehension as our ow n, and we resieci fully submit that there is no fun in it. These are facts, and plain as they Are, it is not in good sense to talk of the trap that Sherman occupies, or of the bull-headed Grant, butting his brains out against the ramparts of Rich mond.
