The Dream of home and its Results.

--Colonel Winston, of the Forty-fifth North Carolina regiment, now with General Early, sends us the following touching incident: "A member of this regiment deserted a few days since, and started home by way of the mountains. On the top of the mountains he lay down to rest, and fell asleep. He dreamed that he had reached home, and his mother was greatly rejoiced to see him till he told her that he had deserted. Then her countenance changed, and she wept as it her heart would break. The shame and disgrace of having her son a deserter was more than she could bear. He woke, got up and started back to camp, where he arrived last night. How wonderful the influence of woman." Biblical Recorder.
