The VIrglnian-Pllbt received the fol? lowing at 1:20 this morning from Its special New York correspondent: New York, (May 20.?Mrs. Nellie Mc Known has departed from Brooklyn In a very unhappy frame of mind. She had Journeyed from Norfolk, Va., where her borne is, to make an effort to re i cover possession of her daughter and namesake, who is 11 years old, and lives with her foster parents, Anthony and Dorothy Regina, formerly of Norfolk, [In Hie Rotel *St. Geirrte. There has been a lengthy proceedings over the 'case before .lames A. Douglas as ref? eree. Ha was appointed by a Supreme Court Judge to hear the testimony and report whether little Nellie McKnown had really been torn away from her own mother. The Referee found that tiie child had been properly obtained by Mr. and Mrs. Fteiita. who had legal? ly adopted her and that it would be wrong lo sever the ties of love and af? fection which now bind them. Mrs. McKown enlisted in her behalf the sympathy of several of Iff wealthy neighbors In Norfolk Who subscribed the money for her lo procure a lawyer and come to Brooklyn to take legal pro? ceedings. SI.,? admitted that she was poor and that her husband, .i carp. li? ter, did not earn more than $12 a week. It was her intention, she said, to take her little daughter to lielgium if site regained possi sston of the child. THIC STORY AT THIS END. The above was received at so hue an hour thai it was impossible for the at this end. it is probably that Mrs. McKown Is the lady In whose behalf an entertainment was given sometime ago in Rrambleton for the purpose of raising money to help her procure aer child, who, It was slated, was In New York. This lady presumably lived in Bramble ton. A DISTRESSING ACCIDENT. LITTLE MATTIE BRYAN PROB? ABLY FATALLY BURNED.

The convcrtcd'gunboat I'corla arrived at Old Point Friday night from Porto Uico. MANILA TRIP ABANDONED. The Intention to semi the Vixen to Manila has been abandon'd on account ? ?f representations made by naval olli cers that she is too small a vessel to send on such a long and dangerous voyage. Orders were recently Issued for the Vixen to proceed to Manila, but before she started it was discovered that site had too much top-hamper. Ac? cordingly She was .sent lb the Norfolk navy yard to be altered, and the W0I k has just been completed. WON'T CO TO SAMOA. The Navy Department at one time considered sending her to Samoa, but this Idea has also been abandoned. At Bluefields the Vixen will be charged with the duty of protecting the Amer? ican merchants, who have been sub? jected to persecution by the Nicnraguan authorities. If her presence there is not urgently required, she will pro vd to other ports In Nicaragua nnd Hon? duras to show the Stars and Stripes to otllcinls who have been "ullty of making life miserable for American res? idents.
