A Touching incident.

--On receipt of the news of Gen. A. H. Gladden's wound, it Columbus, S. C., Nancy, a slave of his, (who, for faithful conduct to his wife in her last Illness, to her infant Mary, and to himself, in an attack of cholera, in New Orleans, has received some privileges,) set out to join her master at Corinth, with the necessary documents from the headquarters of Gov. Pickous. Hearing at Huntsville information of the place being occupied by the enemy, the, with others, had to come by Mobile, fondly hoping to be permitted again to nurse the wounded soldier and patriot. But, alas his spirit had fled, and the sad news that reached her here deeply affected her.--Being thus far South, and having a son in New Orleans, and learning that Lieut Gladden, his nephew, was wounded also, she asked permission to pass on to attend him and see her son, which was granted, and she left for New Orleans on Wednesday afternoon. Oh! ye of the North, if your souls could appreciate the relations of master and servant in the South, you would appreciate such affection as thin. But you are dead to such a sentiment, and must be left to your idol, the almighty dollar — your measure of sentiment, religion, justice and right.--Mobile Tribunes.
