Frederick Houseman was oommitted to the

of perjury. The oase in which he stands

against him by a bright-eyed, Inraelitish

the defendant to bail in the sum of $500,
to answer the charge before the next term, of
the Court of Common Pleas.
Narrow Escape. A man whose name we
were unable to learn, narrowly escaped death,
a tew aays ago, at a nouse on i ront-street.
His friend had a loaded gun in his hand,
which he was in the act of examining, when it
was accidentally discharged. The con touts
struck his hat and tore a hole in the ceiling
through which the body of a man might easily
pass. Had the muzzle of the gun been but an
inch or two lower, his death would have been
absolutely certain.
Murderous Afkbat on Fbont-street. A
difficulty occurred on Saturday night, about
eight o'clock, in a drinking-house on the
corner of Front and Lndlow-streots, between
the bar-keeper, Richard Stoinbaum, and a man
whose same we oould not learn, during whioh
Stelnbaum was dangerously wounded in the
abdomen with a knife. The unknown indi
vidual immediately fled and has notbesn ar
rested. Steinbaum'a injuries are very severe,
and, in oase of inflammation of the abdominal
visoera, will prove fatal.
Fikrck Anti-Adminibtbation Sentiment.
In a recent discourse, the Rev. M, D. Con
way made use of the following fierce anti
Administration sentiment. In speaking of
the late outbreak at Harper's Ferry, the Rev
erend gentleman remarked: "A living dog
is not better than a doad lion, though a
thousand Solomons say so; nor is a living
paltroon better than a dead hero; for who at
this moment would not rather bo Captain
John Brown Old Brown, as he is called
with the gallows starine him in the face, than
that miserable trickster and lilly-livered old
tyrant, at the Federal Capital, haggling with
Governor Wise for the privilege of hanging
that true patriot and martyr?"
Prison, Jail and Hospital. In the City
Prison, at the olose of the week, there were
151 prisoners, (70 of them females,) against
142 the previous week. During the previous
week 24 prisoners were discharged.
In the County Jail there were 8 lunatics; 24
females; 3 on bread and water; 8 on chain
gang; 72 in main jail 131 in all, agaimt 127
the previous week.
At the Commercial Hospital 31 persons were
admitted during the week; 22 discharged; 2
born and 1 died John Benin g. ''
In the Hospital last evening 137 patients
were under treatment, against 127 the previous
At the close of the past week there was but
one case of small-pox In the Pest-house.
Stabbino Affray on Fifth-stbket. About
two o'olock on Sunday morning a row occurred
on Fifth-street, between Race and Elm, which
resulted in one of the parties receiving! five
severo wonnds in th head, neck and baok.
His injuries, although not likely to prove fatal,
will be quite painful for a long time.
We oould not fully learn th particulars of the
fight, but it seems to have involved five or six
persons. While it was in progress, one of
them, named Daniel Peckenbaugh, was as
saulted with a bowie-knife by Charles Ed
Wards, who, after half-killing his opponent,
made his escape. It is tald that E. would
undoubtedly have slain P. but for the fact that
he was aooldently knocked down by a briok,
whioh oaused bim to desist from his murder
ous purpose.
Peckenbaugh, bleeding profusely from half a
dozen wonnds, was taken to the offloe of Dr.
McCarthy, on the oorner of Sixth and College
streets, where . his injuries were attended to
and he made quite as comfortable as was pos
sible nnder the olroumitanoei.
Extraordinary Robbery and Elopement
Extraordinary Robbery and Elopement-The Wife of a Hotel-keeper Robs
Her Husband and Runs Away With
an Ex-Mayor.
The god of marriage never made aohaln
that Cupid oould not break, and ever since the
world began the rosy boy has at his hated
semi-brother laughed. The one is free as air,
and all the law bis votaries care to know is
that of sympathy. His words, his vole, his
acts are tenderness, and this he only uses for
a tie. The other, although npon his brow he
wears a wreath of orange blossoms, and with a
musical voioe entreats migrations into his do
main, bears sternness in bis look and hard
ness in his heart, and binds his followers in
fetters from which they oan , by love alone be
freed. ...
, These enemies to each other are also In some
sort the enemies of man, and both by various
means disturb oftimeB his peace. The methods
and the oircumstances, by and under which
they torture poor humanity seldom reach the
public ear ; for when persons are victimized
even by the gods, they rather ohoose to bear
in silenoe all their wrongs than speak a single
one unto the world. Occasionally, however,
they become too great to bear and then they
oause an elopement or a death, and both of
these make such a vacuum in society that they
cannot long remain unknown.
A month or two ago a man who keeps a
hotel in a city not far from Cincinnati waa
robbed of nearly $500, under peculiar circum
stances. The money waa in gold coin, and
had been placed in such a position in the
house that it could not have been taken but
by some one who was well acquainted with
the premises. His wife was the only person
who could have been aware of its wherea
bouts, and although we know not where it
had been secreted, have been assured that it
was the last place in which a burglar would
have thought of seeking plunder.
The establishment, nowover, was opened
and the money taken. The wife was loudest
and far the most vehement in her expression
of surprise when the robbery-became known,
and although the husband felt satisfied that
some one in the house had committed the
theft, he knew not whom to blame. His wife
had, in appearance, at least, been growing
more and more fond of him daily since she
had been wed, and sympathised with him so
deeply in his misfortune that so single stray
Buspioion entered his puzzled mind that she,
had done it. Still on the alert, and' hoping;
to discover the perpetrator of the felony, timet
passed on, and the matter was as much a,
mystery as before.
A week or two ago she oonoluded to visit
some relatives who reside in Louisvillo, and in
company with the usual amount of traveling
paraphernalia she took passage on the mall
boat for that olty. ' Her husband acootupanied
her to the landing, and their parting waa the
most tender that oould have been oonceived..
Not the addio between "Oilda" and her lover,
or the goodnight of "Romeo" and "Juliet"
was more pathetio, or more reluctant than the
partiDg of our Boniface and his bride.
The day before the lady left her home, how
ever, an Ex-Mayor, whose name we will not
write, had bade bis friends and fsmily "good
by," .for the ostensible purpose of going to
Pittsburg to pnrohase stock. It is not prova
ble be ever reaohed the "smoky olty," for t;wo
days afterward he was seen in Louisville, und
in company with the lady, who her husband
and her friends had thought was visiting her
relatives, he left that oity for the North npon
the train for Lexington.
' Since then the pair have not been seen by
any one who knew them, nor by thoBe to wh om
they should have written, have they been
heard from. The deserted husband first
wrote to Louisville and then visited it; but his
wile could not be found and then he knew that
Love had broken all of Hemyn's chains, and
left him at once penniless and wifeless. , For
the last, just now, he doubtless thanks the
blind but laughing boy, and for the first he
curses alone the fate that married him.
The couple who so suddenly left thoir
homes and familes, but for the double theft,
the Boniface would bid God speed ; but, as it
is, he wishes that every time the truant male
looks into the dark eyes of his lovely but
treacherous wife, he may think of the wrong
they have done him, and than, if they can,
he hopes they may be happy.
Ratber Riot and PERTimur Cobrispond
kncb. Mr. Hezekiah Kiersted, one of the
Third Ward members of the City Counoil, has
a penohant for exposing rasoalities and official
delinquencies. His late enterprise was last
Wednesday night, in soouring around for ar.y
one in public trust who had not rendered full
accounts of his stewardship. On his motion
the City Auditor was direoted to report if the
Gas Tax Collectors or any other eity function
ary were defaulters. Prompt to his duty, per
haps In a spirit of waggery, Mr. Emanuel
Wassenioh, City Auditor, while Sir. K. was
engaged as on of the Investigating 'Committee
within the City Council Chamber, transmitted
to tho author of the resolution a note thus
"Hezekiah Kiersted, Eiq In aooordanoe
with your own resolution, I would redpeotfully
request you to report to me the disposition you
have made of $6,500, a warrant for whioh you
received from the City Auditor, as Chairman of
the Committee on Washington Squs.ro.
(Signed,) E. Wasbbnwich."
To which Kiersted replied in short order,
by the swift-footed Sergeant-at-anns the first
whit ohild born in Cincinnati Mr. William
Moody, Esq., who wore for this occasion white
gloves and standing collar. The following is a
revised copy of the epistle, whioh was fragrant
with perfume of cologne, and written in the
highest style of chirographic art: -
"Dear Sir la reply I will here state that
my acoounts are in th hands of the City Clerk,
which you are at liberty to examine at your
pleasure. With due respect and high regard,
I subsoribe myself your obedient servant,

Sals or the Kentucky Otman. Ritimm
Confirmed. As we had anticipated, the sale of
,L1 1 f ..... - .
mis roan was oosurmea on Saturday last. After
theiCourthad assembled, W. A. Dudly, Esq., the
Commissioner who annduntar r.hia mul.
report, setting forth that the real purchaser of
, V . - J n r, t . .....
uie ivau was a. o. uowier, esq.; mat tne
amount of money required had been deposited,
and that th bonds for the subsequent pay
ments had been satisfactorily made, and signed
by R. B. Bowler, Thos. D. Carneal, Wm. H.
Gedge, John T. Levis, John P. Winston, B.
W. Foley, Lewis Collins, JameB G. Gedge, C.
B. Sanford, H. S. Reynolds. The bond was
conditioned for the paymont of $78,700 in sis
months, th sams amount in twelve, and also
In eighteen months, making in all $235,100.
After the report was filed, Mr. Fisk, repre
senting the City of Covington, and probably
other stock holders, filed the following excep
tions to the sale:
" 1. The judgment ordering the sale is con
trary to law; and void.
" 2. The judgmont ordoring the sale is in
equitable, and the sale was not necessary for
the payment of the debts when they became
" 3. Because W. H. Gedge, the ostensible
bidder, and R. B. Bowler, the actual bidder,
were, at the time of the sale, directors of the
company, and in the matter of the said sale,
acting against the direct interest and ex
pressed withes ef the stockholders, and they
purchased for their independent benefit.
" 4. Because the said road sold for not
more than one-half its actual oost and pres
ent value.
. " 5. Because the sale was not made in ac
cordance with the judgment."
Mr. Fisk argued the case at some length,
but his arguments were overruled by Judge
Goodloe, who stated that he did not feel em
powered to postpone the proceedings, unless
he could be assured that the road would sell
for a much larger sura than had been named.
He thought this would not be the case, and
therefore directed the clerk to enter the fol
lowing order :
"Wintlow, Trustee, do., vt. The Covington and
Lexington Railroad Company it al. This ao
tion having been heard on exceptions to the
Commissioner's report, this day returned, it is
now ordered and adjudged that the exceptions
be overruled, and the report of sale be ap
proved and confirmed. But so much of said re
port as treats of other matter than the sale is
not now acted on, but reserved for further ad
judication. "Farther time is allowed until the first day of
next January for the deposit of incom bonds
sold before the 16th of July, 1855, and the
same time is allowed to holders of said bonds
to offer additional proof of the sal of their
bonds before that day.
"It it ordered that the Commissioner ascer
tain from proof to be offered him the expense
and reasonable compensation of the Trustee,
James Winslow, and tor his counsel fees herein;
also, the reasonable fee of the attorney ap
pointed for th Trustee of the First Mortgage,
and report to the Court at its next term, the
Commissioner to file his report with the Clerk
by the 10th day of January next.
"It is ordered that the Commissioner pay oat
of money in hit hands the bill of printer for
advertising the sale, 4c, as returned with his
report; that be refund to R. B. Bolwer the
$20,000 deposited to teeure a compliance with
the terms of sale, and that a partial allowance
of $1,000 be now made the Commissioner for
bis services."
Tbe case, we understand, will be taken
befow the Court of Appeals, on the ground
tha' the purchasers were directors, and ocn
seqnently, as trustees for the stock-holders,
had no right to purchase tbe road. The gen
eral opinion, however, is that the stock is lost
to the stock-holderi forever.
Abrsst or Anothsb Burglar. On Friday
last, three juvenile burglars, Thomas Findlay,
Pat. Nolan and Cre. Roach, implicated in the
robbery of Mrs. Boyles's confectionery estab

cinnati and conveyed to this city. The eldest
of the parties docs not exceed twenty years of
age, and the others were much his juniors.
Night before last, another, named John Caro,
was arrested, in this oity, for the same offense,
by officer Riff, and he, too, is a mere youth.
The four will probably have a bearing to-day.

Destruction or the Fbci South Nswg
FAPiR. In our issue of Saturday morning, we

of the type and press of the Fret South, and a
peremptory notice to its proprietor to cease its

to Cinoinnatl, within fifteen days.
On Saturday morning a meeting was held at

discuss the propriety of permitting a continu
ance of the Free South, and handbills an
nouncing the faot were posted up in all parts
of the city. At three o'olook the bells were
rung, and a great number assembled at tho
Court-house, who organised themselves into a
meeting, by tbe appointment of Mnjor J. R.
Hallam President, and C. W. Kavenaugh
Colonel Jones offered a series of resolutions,
denouncing th Free South as an incendiary
sheet, but reoommending non-action at that
time. Th Colonel advocated his resolutions,
and was supported by Mr. Anderson. They
were opposed by Messrs. Edwards and Hallam.
Joseph A. Piner, Esq , moved to strike out
that portion of th resolutions reoommending
non-action, whioh was oarried by a large ma
jority. The resolutions were then adopted
unanimously. Tbe meeting then adjourned to
meet In front of the office of the Free South,
which it did in a few minutes afterward.
Mr. Baily had received some intimation of
what he might expect, and had fastened the
doors. Appearing at one of the windows, he
remonstrated against tho proceeding with
much warmth, when the crowd broke open
the door and entered the office. .
The greater part of the type and the two
presses were then loaded in wagons, which
were driven to the ferry-boat. A large por
tion of the material was taken to Cincinnati,
the remainder was thrown in tbe river, elter
which a vigilance oommittea was appointed
for the purpose of preventing the re-iasue of
the Free South at any future period.
A Countryman in Tboubli. A young man
named Troutman, who is in the habit of vis
iting this city for the purpose of disposing of
sundry vegetables, on Saturday morning last,
having the fear of the cold weather, rather
than the police before his eyes, imbibed so
much of the ardent on his way hither, that he
wandered about the streets' about two o'clock,
making the most hideous noises, and disturb
ing thesleep that had fallen upon our citizens.
Finally he found his way to a saloon, upon
the door of which he commenced an assault,
which he continued until driven away by the
proprietor. His fun, however, was not ap
preciated, and he was arrested and fined
$5 and costs in the Police Court, for , his
untimely demonstrations.
W. Wax niw vs. Starbock & Co. This
Libil BtriT. Tb'icUmlngai'guiurut for tha plaintiff
mails by Judite Jni.a.mn,whi, occupied the en
tire forenoon, and apH.loulz.fi fur the length of bis
remarks by statii.g mat Uh had -ix hours of plauslhla
and somewhat sophistical argumeuta on the other
aide lo reply to.
Judge Gholson oharged the jury at considerable
length. He ins; meted thetn that the publication of
the articles made out a prima facie case of libel. If
the charites .contained In these were austaiued bv
facts, then they were jmtiiisble; if thy were not
niaHe out, and they lefc n sting unpruved to the at
Tfl? . o'turj"p- then tliero waa nojustiBcition.
It they bellevfthey contained a covert, ironioul In
lerencB thut the puiulitT waa not carrylnir on an
Koueat and laborious struggle," but the reverse,
that chargo would he libelous The plaintiff had
seen fit not t. insert in his petition the whole, but
oulyapartofihese publications, but tho jury should
consider the entire publication, in order to have an
uiiderswiidiDgof the parts that are In the petition,
and In view of the Intent and disposition by which
the defendants were governed la making tha publi
cation. If.accordlng- to these views, there had been either
no libelous publication at all; that tbe articles con
tained noi'alse statement, which could be reaarded
as libelous; that the defendants bad aatisfled them
that there was no malice, and that the statements
were substantially true, the inquiry could not pro
ceed further, and a verdict must be returned for the
defendants. Hut If they were satisfied, on tli- con.
trary, there was actum malice, and the defendants
failed to prove In whole or in part the charges in the
publication, there must be a verdict for tbe plaintiff
to some amount of damages the actual or precis
amount resting in the discretion of the jury, who
wore not to act arbitrarily or capriciously, but as
reasonable men. In view or the circumstances of the
case aud Ihe conduct ot the parties.
Under the latter view of tha case, the plaintiff
would be euti'led to compensation fur actual loss or
damage sustained, which could be the subject of ac
tual compulation; alto to compensation for Injury to
his feeling but as to this, there was no precise mea
sure, and their discretion must be applied under all
tbe circumstances, and particularly the conduct of
the plaintilf himself is to bo regarded. The law al
lows, but by no means enjoins, the rendering of vin
dictive or puuitivo damages. Bvtbre the dffendauts
could be subjected to tlie latter, there must have been
a cotiscloim violation of thB rights of the plaintiff;
bociiuie it these defendants, under a mistaken n. nne
ot their own rights, or under some state of circum
stances that would ehow that what thev did waa
without any intention to Injure tho plaintiff, or that
tboy were not guilty of any evil intent or disregard
to the rights of their neighbor, then it would not be
a proper subject ol punishment, and the jury should
be content to give a verdict to compensate the plain
tiff, without proceeding to punloh the defendants.
In that branch of tho Inquiry, the conduct of both
parties, in reference to the subject-matter, should be
The Jury retired at half-past twelve o'clock, and
after a deliberation of about lour hours, returned
with a verdict for plaintiff and one cent damages.

Mr. McCammon resumed his testimony. For sev

and made hs mark; his will waa executed about
three Quarters of an hour afterward; did not heir

he had ninety odd shares in the Louisvillo Mull Line,
worth, he said, about one hundred end thirtydollara
a share; stock in the Little Miami Railroad Com
pany, to the amount of ait or seven thuand dollars;
stock In the Memphis and New Orleans facket Com
puny, andsome Burnet House stock.
He left no books, and was so careless about his
business that be did nut know the fact of his onir g
