[The circumstances which induced the writing of the
following touching and thrilling lines are as follow :—A
young lady in New York was in the habit of writing for
a Philadelphia paper on the subject of Temperance. iler
writing was so full of pathos, and evinced such deep emo

maniac on the subject of Temperance, whereupon she
wrote the following lines

THE ANGEL OF THE DEPOT ;
What Came of a Kiss
The great depot was crowded. The
—th regiment was about to leave for
the seat of war,-and it was known that
the brave fellows were going whore
fighting was sure to come. The cars
bad backed into the building, and the
engine was shrieking impatiently.
The regiment had filed into the depot,
and as the soldiers rested a few mo
ments upon their arms, fond friends
gathered around, and the words of
parting were spoken. There wore
tears and sobs, and blessings; there
were wringing.of hands and wringing
of hearts! Wives were parting with
hUsbands; mothers were parting with
their sons; sisters were bidding good
bye to brothers; and fathers were
speaking the last words of caution and
care. It was a season of painful-anx
iety; for the departing sons were go=
ing with their lives in their bands, and
the offerinn , on the battle altar might
spoedily be , made:'
Corporal Walter EVerinead :!Catted"
upon his rifle, and gazed upon the
scene. No one came to kiss: him—
none to bid him farewell. Not Over

Evermond. He had a fresh, hand

his frame was one of those marvels
wherein a magnificent physical struct

with a longing look, 'it would be plea

But I shan't get it.'

Walter Evermond, felt a hand upon
his arm; and the prettiest, sweetest
face he had ever seen beamed upon
him with a smile.

and pressed her lips upon his bloom/l
'Thank you! Bless you !' •

The Corporal pressed the hand of
the beautiful girl, gave one more look
into her beaming eyes, and then fell
into line; and ere long the cars rolled
out from the depot bearing the volun
teers toward the field Where patriot
duty called them.
In a little while the train was out

throng of friends gradually dispersed

John Gainsford his brother-in-law. He
knows Gainsford has no ro•
spoct for him:
The Judge kissed his child, and the
matter was settled. Gainsford was
the son of ono of his oldest, friends, and
thus the intimacy commenced ; and
he had been willing, for his daughter's
sake, to try the young man, but he
felt a sense of relief now that the tri
al was over.
George Preston, the Judge's only
son, had gone as Captain of a compa
ny; and the family watched anxiously
for the news that was to bear them
intelligence of the Movements of the
—tb regiment. By and by intelli
gence came. The regiment was at
Poolesvillo. The regiment was at
Ball'S Bluff! The regiment had been
under fire the , whole of that , terrible
day; and a fearful havoc had been
made in its ranks. Where was George?

The Judge came home with an even
ing paper, and handect.' it to Nellie,
pointing with his, finger to the 'para
graph sho was to read:-- She read as
follows : .

river:. He had made :hie way
the Nag and was assisting 'Stoma of:
his wounded comradea,;When the en
emy came pouring down. upon him.
Ho was surrounded,And would have
been slain, but for the heroic bravery
and devotion of a Sergeant of his com
pany. The Sergeant, whose name
was Walter Evermoud, seeing the
Captain in danger, sprang to his side,
and with his revolver, shot down three
men who were pressing upon hiM.
When they gained the water, Captain
Preston had received a wound in the
shoulder, which rendered it impossi
ble for him to swim; but Evermond
did not forsake him. The noble fel
low clung to his captain like a brother
and succeeded in getting him safely
over the river: We aro happy to
state that Captain Preston's wound
is not dangerous.'
'Oh ! Heaven bless that mible Ser
pant I' ejaculated Nellie, as she fin.
ished rcliding the, account. Ahd her
father joined her with his whole soul.
Later in the evening a curious tho't
worked its way into Nellie Preston's
mind. She wished the man who had
saved her brother's life so bravely had
been only a corporal ! And then she
wondered where that fair faced, bright
eyed soldier was whom she had kissed
at the depot. It would be a satisfac
tion to know how he fared. She ho
ped he was safe.
Ere long a letter came from George
in which he gave a thrilling account
of the battle. He spoke of Sergeant
Walter Ev,ermond as he would have
spoken of a brother. 'Ho saved my
life, at the risk, of his own,' he wrote,
'and but for him you would have no
son living to write this; and Nellie
would have no brother.' There was a
postscript to the letter as follows :
'P. S.—Walter Evermond has just
received the commission of a Second
I ieutenan t.' •
The winter wore away, and George
in his letters to his sister, frequently
spoke of Walter Evora - ond as a very
dear friend. At length came a letter
With the following passage :
'My dear father and sister give me
joy. -lam a Major, and my commis
sion dates from the day of Ball's Bluff.
My dear friend Evormond is Captain
of my old company; and a better sol
dier does• not live, and I know there
cannot be a truer friend.'
Once more the Judge and his daugh
ter wero anxious. The —;-th regiment
was before Yorktown. Then dame
the bloody field of Williamsburg; but
Georgo was not called into that bat
tle., At length, however, came ti
dings of another bloody :day, in which
the regiment was engaged. FAIR

his father vas there to receive him.

''Not'Very old,' said George, with a
Strap, and not very ugly.' , - :But there
is a- curious circumstance 'connected
with his experience as a soldier, which
is worth relating. He told the story
to me with tears in his oyes. After
the affair at Ball's BluffWe were like
brothers. Evermond is an orphan;
without father or niother, brother or
Sister. He has a splendid education,
which he.owes to an old aunt, who in
tended him for it minister; but his dis
position did not lead him that Way,
and ho started to study law: His
aunt withdrew her favor, and_ he was
left to struggle alone. :He was in
danger of becoming dissipated, when

waiting at the depot, on the morning
when we left for the seat of war, Er
emend stood alone gilzing on the
scone of weeping andblessing; and as
the thought passed through his mind
that he was relieved from the pain of
parting with friends, he felt it would
be a blessing to bear away ono friend
ly kiss that he could remember as
coming from a sister. He said this
aloud, and in a moment a young girl—
he says the most beautiful, girl he ev
er saw—put her hands upon his shoul
ders and kissed him on the cheek. Ho
says he had just time to bless the an
gel, when the order came to fall in.
think the girl that gave Walter Ever
mond that kiss did a glorious deed.
He assures me that it made hini all
that he is. He says that the memory
of that sweet face has led Lim to high
and noble resolves; and that he had
sworn within himself that he would
never do a deed that could cause that
girl to blush that she had kissed him
even were she the daughter of a king.
'You said he Was a private then ?'
