A brave negro boy.--One of the members of the Second Ohio regiment told me, that on the march up to the battle of Bull Run, a negro boy, a bright little fellow, “wanted to go along.” They let him do so. He stuck close to them in the midst of the fight, and finally the little fellow got a musket, and fought as bravely as the bravest of them. On their retreat he got tired out, and lay down in the corner of a fence and went to sleep. There they regretted to have to leave him.--Banner of the Covenant, Aug. 10.
