Horrible Aooident Little Girl Crushed
to Death by the Fall of a Stove. A little
daughter of Mrs. Margaret Simpson, about
three years of age, residing on Second-street,
near Butler, was so oaaiy injured last Satur
day evening, by the fall of a stove, that after
lingering in the intensest pain until yester
day noon, she died. The circumstances, as
related to us by the attending physician, are
The stove, having lost a couple of its feet,
had been kept in its position by cricks, which
were made to supply tueir loss, and tnese nad
become displaced, while the child was play
ing about them, causing the stove to fall. Her
ribs and collar-bone were broken by the acci
dent, and her body crushed and mangled
the most shocking manner, beside being
severely burnt. Her mother happened to
in the room at the time; but her fright and
the heated condition ot the stove caused some
time to elapse before the child could be extri
cated. Medical aid was immediately called In, but
all that could be done for the purpose of re
lieving her sufferings was without avail.
Indeed, It is soniewoai singular mat tne cnua

On motion or Mr. Btevenson, tne unmmu

tion; provided that after the said sum is sub

voted for the grant proposed by this ordi
nance. Mr. Lontracre claimed that the amendment
to the third section amounted to nothing.
Who could tell whether freight were through
freight, or destined to Cincinnati? Fruud
would be dailv practiced.
Mr. Allnut did not believe that a franchise
worth $500,000 or $1,000,000 ought to be
granted for the construction of the bridge,
which would be completed at any rate. It is
said that the bridge would add to the popu
lation of Covington. No matter. The people
would come, bridge or no bridge. Cincinnati
was full to overflowing, and the surplus would
come here. Passeneers. freight, everything
would pass through the town without stop
ping, and the merchants and hotel keepers
would all be ruined, and Covington would
become only a flag station. All the 150,000
hogs brought from central Kentucky would
go through direct, nnd not stop here, nnd the
neoule would lose twenty-five cents per head,
the usual cost of takine them from the Rail
road Station. It was the greatest scheme of
The speech elicited considerable applause
from the large crowd of spectators present.
Mr. Menzies thought the amendments
ought to have been in three different parts.
He opposed the restriction on way freight;
it would encouraire men to eo to New York
for goods, instead of stopping in Cincinnati
or Covington, the Invitation to a coving-
ton company to subscrilas tue stock, he
favored; but he was opposed to submitting it
to the people. Councilmen were elected to
make laws, and thev ought to have the back-
hone to do their duty, (Cheers from the
spectators.) He favored the bill, in the main;
it would secure tne completion oi tne Druige
in ttve years. We must benefit the public at
large, rather than particular interests, as dry-
goods merchants, hotel keepers, or tcrrvmen.
The arguments of the gentleman (Mr. Allnut)
had ever been used against reiorins. ueo.
Tazewell opposed the steam navigation of
James luver, and juoscs uorson opposed tne
construction of the Miami Canal on similar
grounds. The one, it was predicted, would
ruin the saii-Doal trade, and tne otner tne
wagoners. But that was a great while ago.
It gentlemen did not desire to see people go
to Cincinnati to trade, let them raise the
ferriage to twenty-five cents. That would do
it effectually; but he supposed no one had the
hardihood to do it. He was opposed to rais
ing a revenue trom street railroads. All
