A Juvenile Rogue—A Boy Absconds
With Over $3,000.
A day or two' linos a routh named J A.
Smith, about leventeen years eld, abaeeaded
f.-om Middlatowa. in this State, with over
$11,00(1, entruted to him to carry to Winehes
tar, Preble County. It appears that he had
obtained $3,600 In a sealed package from the
United States Express Company, and instead
of delivering the money, appropriated the
greater portion of it, and left for parts un
known. The boy has been regarded hereto
fore as reliable and promiiinj, and the knowl
edge of his crime will fall heavily npon hi
mother, a widow, residing la Eaton, Butler
County, who depended npon Un for support.
Attempted Suicide from Want—A Man
A man, whose name we withhold by request,
was found, on Sunday morning last, in an out
house belonging to a building on Front-street,
near Western-row, in an apparently moribund
condition, but whether from oold or dlieaie
could not at first be definitely determined.- He
was taken up by those who found him and car
ried into the home, when a physician was
summoned, who found his pulse hoary and
the patient covered by a oold sweat, which
led hlru to believe that it was a caie Of at
tempted self-destruction by laudanum. .
A stomach-pump waa immediately procured,
and his system thus relieved of the poisonous
drug. By the aid of the proper reetorativea
the man gradually recovered from the stupor
Into which he had been thrown, and was yes
terday in suoh a condition as to be able to give
an account of himaelf.
He atated that he arrived. In the city between
two or three weeks ago from Indiana, where
he left a wife and family who were entirely
dependant npon his exertions for support, for
the purpose of seeking employment and a
livelihood here. Since that time he has tra
versed the different thoroughfares of the
metropolis, begging in rain for a privilege to
Wearied at length and disgusted with hii
condition; out of money and on the point of
starvation; compelled to sleep in the station
houses or freese to death with the oold; una
ble to return to his family or to provide for
them, he determined to die, and for this pur
pose, by asking for money, he procured suf
ficient to purchase the potion, which, but for
the eircumatanoes of having been found, would
have released him from a life that has become
too heavy to be borne.
He is still ill, not having entirely recovered
from the effects of the poison; but in the
hands of peraons who will aasiat and furnish
him with the kind of aid and sympathy he
seems moat to need.
Narrow Escape of Eight Persons from
The ferry-boats plying between this city and
Covington, were compelled to cease running
yesterday evening, in eonseqnence of the heav
iness of the ioe, and a party of eight persons
very foolishly attempted to eross in a ikiff.
They had not proceeded far, however, before
they were unable to manage the boat and it
was rapidly carried down the river.
Some persons on the wharf-boat, however,
tuoceeded in resouing six of the individuals
from their exceedingly unpleasant predica
ment, but the remaining two were swiftly borne
along with the current. When they reached
Weitern-row another escaped and with great
difficulty reaohed the shore: but the other still
remaining in the skiff, whioh by this time
was considerably broken and partially filled
with water, was drawn out again into the river
and was carried beyond the reach of help.
What has been the fate of this man it is
difficult to conjecture, but unless he has been
extrioated by some miracle from hit position,
e'er this death must have been the result. To
die in the midst of a field of moving Ice, with
aid looking npon him from each aide; to see
the night draw aside hsr sable ourtain and
show the glittering stars, but hide the land one
can net hope to reach; to feel the pulse grow
slow and slower, while the northern wind
freesei every fiber of the body, and its eager
blast sighs sorrowfully aait waita to bear the
freed aoul to another sphere, and thus to die,
fsr from every sympathetic eye and kindly
touch, must, indeed, have been terrible. This,
however, Is but another form wbioh the Earth
takes to rid herself of those who love her
most; for all admit that they are first to die
who find the greatest benlion in life. ,
Family Relieved by the Aid of Lorettes.
Our issue of yesterday contained a tiara-
graph stating that Jt man named Saunders,
with his wife and ten children had arrived in
this oity from Nebraska, and were at the
Hammond-street Station-haase, penniless,
starving and half dead with the augue. Early
yesterday morning they were visited by several
women, each of whom gare them not only kind
and sympathetic words, bat also money, that
they might be enabled first, to relieve their
wants and afterward to reaoh their relatives in
Iroaton, to whloh place, it appears, they had
concluded to return, after a long and painful
journey to the Weat.
We are aware that the prinoiple we call
benevolence often manifests itself in those from
whom it is Icaat expected; but we oonfess to
having been somewhat surprised when we
learned that this deed of charity had been per
formed by lorettes. Lady Amaranth lays that
"one good deed is an illustrious Dedioree:"
one such act of kindness as that we have just
reocrded, is suffioient to cojrer a' thousand
errors. ' This story, simple as it is, would fur
nish a text for a volume of sermons, and the
aot in itaelf would seem suffioient to atone for
an tnoir previous years pf shame.

ACOIDIKT TO THB FlBBT-BOAT COVIIOTOX.
Yeiterday, while the forry-boat Onmgton was
orossing the river, toward Cincinnati, It en
countered a body of ioe, by which the hull
was 10 badly perforated that it became neces
sary to tow it into the Licking for repairs.
ClKOIXBiTI AMD CoVIMOTOW BridOI, We
understand that there are indications that the
work on the Cincinnati and Covington Bridge
will be resumed next summer. Be this as it
may, the present condition and future pros
pect of the river oertainly demonstrate the
necessity of a speedy notion in regard to this
matter. . . .-. ...-.' . . ., , ,,
We are unwilling to concede that any other
city, as large and wealthy aa Cincinnati, and
located so adrantacreoualT for oommeroe and
manufaoturea, possessed a greater degree of
enterprise wan is noes, yes we nn towns com
paratively insignificant, not only erecting but
luitaininga bridge of this deaniption, while
we are without one. .,,
' The trade of central Kentucky la directed
almost exclusively toward Clnolnnati. but the
Interruptions whioh so frequently intervene
during the winter, oocaaioned by the ioe in
the river, ar productive of serious losses to
the city merchants, aid a great Inoonvenlenoe
to the people of the country. .,-,
For nearly two months of ths year the Ken
taoky trade Is rendered stagnant by the un
certainty of oonatant communication between
the two shores of the Ohio. The only prac
tical and effectual remedy to be applied to
this li, the speedy completion of the bridge
over the river. With proper effort, two years
will be ample time to seenre its erection. .
Ioa, The ice Is rapidly aoctunalatiag in the
river, and it is with the greataMt difficulty that
a transit Is kept np between this and Cincin
nati. The river is falling, and consequently
the ice is contracted into a narrower compass,
hence it is mnoh more compact than, it would
otherwise hare been.- vV--. ' 0
I Fouoi M attibs. A Hibsrian female waa
yesterday fined $2 and coats for indulging in a
"wee bit" too much on Saturday lait, to drown

Pkb'b Oris a-hodsb. The audience at the

at this cosy and comfortable establishment was very
,r.g SPd '". m'T tw' tn houae waa overflowing,
John Brougham's laughable burlesque of Po-oo-noi-Tis
paaaed off admirably, and kept the audience
in a roar. Blcs Bubd, with iu magnlBcent scen

and the Oriental splendor of iu suggestions gave de
light to all who witnessed it. Both theae plays will
be repeated this evening, and the entorUinmeot will
close with a capital farce.
NatIoral Thiatib. The historical drama

the characteristics for which she U noted, and al
though we do not like the play, we must ooniniend
her representation of the character.
The exqutelte grace of the movemenU of thie excel

over the expreaalon of her face : the juatneas of her
conception of every character abe portray a, and the
pathos, power and perfeot harmony which character
ize her impersonations render her a study (or both
the painter and the poet. The paasione ahe utters in
words ahe seams to feel, and ail is mirrored In her
face lp a styls so flnlihed as to make it almost won

William Till ahd Gbblbb's Minions A
AOTOB OVBROOMS BT ScPIBDUMBRABIIS. Sol
Smith relates" this amusing story t
One of our first stars in Mobile this season
(1835-0,) was Mr. Barton,. then newly arrived
in this country, afterward and for several
years acting manager of the St. Charles thea
ter, New Orleans. I had known Mr. Barton
before, at Montgomery, where he had acted
with me, and where we had passed many
pleasant hours drinking tea, (yes, literally
drinking tea!) and discussing: the nlavcf Ham.
4let. " ' '
Mr. Barton opened in "William Tell," and
barring that he had a weak voice, oaused by
asthma, and a rather imperfect utterance, the
result of bad teeth, a noble representation of
that hero he gave.
In the seoond aot, it will be remembered
William Tell is seised by the Austrian troops,
under the oommand of one Sarnem, and loaded
with ohains, by order of Governor Gesler. At
rehearsal, as is usual, I called four of our
"useful" people to do the selling; but Mr.
Barton requested that instead of the actors
doing the business, I would select four strong
supernumeraries, and to them entrust the task
of seizing and orushing him down. "I always
find," says Mrs, B., "that supers do this busi
ness best: they are unused to the convention
alities of the stage, and therefore act natu
rally." So it waa arranged in that way.
"Inatruot them to orush me down," added
Mr. Barton ) " let them understand that at
the one they are to rush upon me, and not pay
ing the least attention to what is said, or what
I do, they are to crush me down, and hold me
there till the curtain falls." "All right," said
I, " we have some pretty strong fellows among
our supers, and they will undoubtedly orush
you down, and keep you down." "The
stronger the better' replied B., "and be sure
to tell them to keep me down when they have
got me there.- Never fear," I rejoined,
" they will keep you down, undoubtedly.
' At night I selected four of the itrongeit fel
lows I ooald find, and asking my partner to
take charge of two of them on one aide, I took
the other two, and stationed them directly op.
poaite. Being: extremely anxloue that the acene
ahould go well, and all depending on the final
tableaux, Ludlow and myself were very par
ticular to give the supers their orders; in shot t,
they stood ready at the eua to leap like tigers
npon the prey. .
' "Seise him!" exclaimed Sarnem and they
did aeiie him. Aa soon as they were told to
"go," they were upon him. And obt how
quiokly poor Barton found himself crushed
: "Let me np you are murdering me!"
gaaped the unfortunate TelL Bot there was
no letting np there no, lirl They had been
told not only to eruih him down but to hold
him there, regardless of anything that should
be done or said; and they obeyed their orders
most ImpHoitly. In rain Tell struggled with
his cantors; in vain he swore they were kill
ing him. There they held him, and there
they would have held him during the remain
der of the night, if the fall of the ourtain had
not pnt an end to the scene. Poor Barton,
helpless and panting, and breathing asthmatio
curses against the strong supers, waa carried
to the green-room, and the performance was
delayed a full half hour for his recovery. ,

Viis. A young German lady writes as fol
lows to her lover, of a nun ahe met in Europe:
She kept it, winter and summer, in her eell;
she accommodated herself, in ererthing, to its
wants; day and night she gave tt air, and in
winter, only at mnoh warmth as was ncoeaiary
for it. How did she foci herself rewarded,
when it was covered with budsl She showed
them to me, when they were scarcely set; I
helped to cherish It; every morning I filled the
omse at SU Magdalen's well; the buds grew
and beoame red; at last they opened; cn the
fourth day it stood there in full blossom; each
blossom, a white cell, with a thousand rayed
arrows in the midst, each of which bore a pearl
upon its point It stood at the open window;
the bees greeted It.
Now I first know, that this tree Is conse
crated to love; then I did not know it, and
now I understand it. Tell me, oan love be
more sweetly oherished than this tree? and
oan tender care be more sweetly rewarded,
than through so full a bloom? Ah, the dear
nun, with half-faded roses on her cheeiu, en
veloped In white, and the black crape veil
whloh floated around her quick, elegant gait,
as, from oat the wide aleeves of the black
woollen garment, ehe stretched her beautiful
hand to water the Ihworel Once ahe placed a
little blaok bean in the earth; she gave it me,
and said I should eheriah It, and I ahould
have a delightful lurprise.
It toon began to ihoot, and shewed leaves
like trefoil; it twined up a little stalk, like the
vetch, with little ringed hooks; then It pro
duced scanty yellow budr; out of thla grew, as
big aa a hssel nut, a little green egg, with
brown rings. Thenun broke it off, pulled It
out by the stalk irnt a chain of elegantly ar
ranged thorns, between whioh the seed, con
sisting of little beans, had become ripe. She
