,?"The New Jerusalem, or new church
organ of this city, scores with severity an
instance of passional affinity of a married
man for a young lady. The husband com
municated to the editor that ho is now fifty
years of age, but although his wife .baa made
a good mother and wife, ho has not Joved her
other than as a sister. His affinities are for
a young lady twenty years of nge. We do
not know what the editor answered to the
husband who consulted him as to his new
passional attraction, but in his paper lie
soys: "Such love may take something, of
earth, but its chief source is hell; from Ties von
it gets nothing."
The gentleman, it is said, has a social and
and professional reputation in this city, and,
as peoplo aro curious, will, no doubt, g issip
a good deal about the new relation.
O, how his cheek should have burno d to
have confessod to such infidelity eve n in

the mother of his children! The only hope
for that man is to go to the wifo and .-return

COVINGTON NEWS.
That Bbeach op ths Pxacb. Suit was
brought before Judfle Mooar, on Saturday morning
last, against Bernard Van Lear, for committing a
breaoh of the peace. The prosecuting witness wm a
Mrs, Hopkins; the same woman made complaint
against bim for selling impure milk in Cincinnati,
which resulted in tbo appointment by the Mayor of
an Investigating Committee, who examined into the
matter, and made an nnfavorable report. In her
evidence, Mrs. Hopkiua alleged that Van Lear mads
such demonstrations sa induced licr to believe he
purposed to commit violence upon her person, and
she ran away from hla presence. The Jury, after
hearing the testimony, retired to consult, which
consumed about two hours, when they returned with
a verdict or guilty. Tho suit grow altogether out of
the report made in the Cincinnati milk case.
SosrECTKD or Undos Appropriations Du
ring a period of six months last past, a number of
articles have been missing from the carriage estab.
Ilshment of Samuel K. Hnya, on Madison-street,
which induced him to keep a watchful eye upon hla
employees. On Saturday Inst, circumstances led him
to suspect a young man in hia employ, named James
Matchett. A warrant was procured and put in the
bands of Constable Francis, who, after arresting
him, proceeded to his boarding-house and searched
his trunk. He was arraigned before Ksquire Schrock
for the crime, but Mr. Hays finding but few things in
his possession, did not feel disposed to go tooxtremi
tios, nnd ho was discharged.
Valuablk Cargo. Conduotor Winston, of
the Kentucky Central Railroad, took from the pas
senger depot, at Paris, a day or two ago, a train of
seven cars, freighted with the products of Bourbon
County, valued at over six hundrod thousand dollars!
The aforesaid products were composed of large, fine
looking, well-dressed and happy negroes, who had
chartered a special train for the purpose of visiting
their colored brethren of Lexington and assisting in
the ceremonies of a church dedication. What will
the rash Abulitlonlstaof the last have to say now?
Will any continno to slander our peculiar institu
tion with the same vituperation that has heretofore
chsractorized them, and will they turn honeat and

Grand Pbojkci Its Feasibility. In lite
absence of the requisite medium with which to sup
ply the City of Covington with good and wholesoms
water, a new plan has been suggested by one of our
citizens, which Is not only plausible but practicable.
It Is to inuko a contract with the City of Cincinnati
to lay pipes across the Ohio Rlvor, andsiipply us with
water from their reservoir. Tho Cincinnati reservoir
ir.ny bo of too small dimensions at present to afford
Ms a supply, but as thev Intend to onlarge It soon, we
presume it can be accomplished. At any rata it is a
matter worthy of the consideration of tho Council,
and of ourcitlzena generally.
At His Post Again. For several weoks
past we have missed from his post, at the Magnolia
House, the good-humored phlis of Hampton, the ever
attentivo superintendent of the establishment, but
dropping in there on Saturday last we found be had
returned, looking as fair and as affable as ever. In
hia absence he visited hla old stamping ground, and
it was shmwdly suspected by some that he had gone
on a matrimonial excursion. We believe, howevor,
such we not the fu.'t.

prior to Wednesday noxt.

NEWPORT NEWS.
Bow Y wtirday. A row occurred yesterday
at Brntche's Ooffra-honse, corner Monmouth and
Jefferson-streets. It appears a lot of "rowdies"
rather the worse for sundry, or Sunday, drinks, got
np a fight between two of their number, which, owing
to the amount of whisky tliat had been Imbibed by
them, resulted In no serious damage to either of ths
participants. The noise of their blasphemous lan
guage attracted quite a large crowd. Aa the Bonder
lew has been vlolated-morally and civilly ws hops
the Mayor will attend to his part of the consequences.

SATURDAY EVENING, Aug. 27—3 P. M.
Duriug the week past there bas been an Improve
msnt in the supply of Currency In the msrket, and
we report Monoy matters a shade easier than the
previous week. The groat difficulty is that confi
dence has been Impaired by the reotnt failures,
which has crsatcd a general distrust, both on
'Change and on Third-street. The disclosures made
of tho condition of affairs of some of the firms hav
ing lately failed, goes very far to oonvince ths publie
that tbe parties have forgotten a very ancient quo
tatloa-"honesty tho Dost policy."
At the close of the week It was rumored that one
of our prominent manufacturing fir mi was under
