a-telling, a-coming

I'm trying to translate Oliver Twist from English into Turkish, unfortunately, i couldn't understand these words' meanings: a-telling, a-coming. I think, a is prefix but i couldn't find this prefix's meaning. Here is some of Oliver Twist' text: I was only a-telling one/ it was you a-coming. Could you help me to find these words' meanings? Thanks a lot.
