The Bent Business.
The News went to Covington Friday
and had a long interview with the Rev.
J. G. Tunison, regarding the controversy
between himself and the Rev. James M.
Bent, of Millersburg. A large portion of
that interview was placed in type Saturday
afternoon, and would have been dished
out for our readers to-day, but owing
to the intervention of our kind friends
"W. H. H. Johnson and J. G. Allen, who
are gentlemen whom we could not well
refuse. For their sake, and the sake of
ih the Bantist "congregation to which.
they belong, we suppress for the present
the large-sized newspaper controversy
which the interyiew would have provoked,
and received the asssurance from
them that the matter would be investigated
and settled at the approaching Association
of their church. Therefore, for
the sake of harmony in their little congregation,
the readers of the News will have
to be content with the following little
summary of the affair :
Mr. Bent and the Rev. Mr. Tunison's
son were partners in a shoe store. Mr.
Bent furnished the capital against Mr. Tunison's
time) After a business of fourteen
months, it was closed out at a small
loss. The books showed that Tunison's
mother furnished $60 at one time and $50
at another to relieve the store from a
pressure of indebtedness, and that the
same had been drawn out in the same
quantities and paid to Mrs. Tunison.
Mr. Bent claimed this as his money, but
in the settlement the board of abitrators
said it was not his, but Mrs. Tunison's.
' Thfc, Mr. Bent half admitted to a brother
of his church at Millersburg, was due the
Tutiisons, but never would admit such to
them. The Tunisons also claim that Mr.
Bent sinned in a very unbecoming
manner in attaching their family organ,
to make the balance of the debt due him.
when payment had not been demanded.
The financial difference between the
parties has been settled. It is now a
church affair, and one in which the public
would be but little interested.
Our conclusion from the evidence
gleaned in the interview, is this: We do
not think that Mr. Bent has been guilty
of the sin of Annannias and Sapphira, as
charged by the Rev. Tunison, but we do
think that in his Shylockian avarice to
claim, the pound of flesh due him, he
laid claim to a sum which fee afterward
admitted to a church brother
unjust, and being goaded by the Rev.
Mr. Tunison to confess personally to him
his wrong, allowed brute stubbornness to
take posession of bis heart, and nothing
short of a church tribunal can make it relent,
and it is extremely doubtful whether
it will be effective.
By request, as before stated, we dismiss
- the controversy from our columns, and
cheerfully consign its parcipitants to that
reclusiveness from which they have so
recently been unearthed, and, it is (ardently
hope that their flocks will turn
shepherds"and surround their erring pastors
and teach them brotherly love, forbearance,
long-suffering and forgiveness,
which, after having been garnered as
shining 'treasures, will be crowned with
that cap-sheaf gentility, which adds a
a pearly polish to the christian to whom
. the wicked wordlian will not shrink to
Gov. Blackbuzn proved himself a
flunkeying old imbecile, by goine,to Cincinnati
in a special car to meet the Rev.
Mr. Taltnage. While weare in favor of
treating all distinguished guests with all
courtesy due to them, we mo3t heartily
condemn this flunky hero-worship business.

All is not in a serenely sweet and happy
condition among the Republican leaders
over at Dahville. Last Friday, Logan
McKee went into the Danville Tribune

something, when Murphy downed him
and put a couple of beautil Swiss sunsetB

around the grand stand promising to
carve him for a few minutes. Not being
able to catch Murphy, the show busted
up, when McKee and Linney walked
arm in arm away.

Old Dan Eicc Nathan & Co.'s Show.
This veteran Grimaldi who for many successive
years delighted the inhabitants of
this section of the world with his brilliant
flights of oratary and comical, amusing
was, has again come forth from temporary
retirement, and will be sen at PARIS on
Thursday Aug. 9th with Nathans & Co's consolidated
shows, for whom he is proving a
genuine bonanza, as hundreds of people
daily flock to their exhibitions merely for
the purpose of catching a look at the old-time
favorite, whose name is cherished in
their memories with the most endearing affection.
The papers throughout the state have been
showering golden ecomiums upon Nathans &
Co.'s splendid circus performance and from
among many of the same character we clip
the following from the Albany Daily Union
of May 4th:
Nathans & Company's menagerie and
French circus arrived this morning and
made their street parade through the principal
thorough fares, which was a very creditable
one. This afternoon they gave the
first performance, which was an excellent
one, especially the bareback principle of
Mme. Dockrill in her grand acts of riding
and driving four horses, also the acrobatic
performances of the thre Ashton Brothers,
who are wonderfully clever in their line,
and being large men of fine build make a
grand appearance. The clowns, two in number,
besides Col. Dan Rice are Mons. Lerch,
late of the French circus, Paris, bringing
with him everything new and original, was
a pleasant feature of the afternoon performance,
as well as Billy Carroll, whose comical
songs and witty sayings kept the immense
audience in roars of laughter. Another feature
of the show was Prof. Rhineheart's
troupe of performing dogs which were very
amusing to the children. The wonderful flying
ring act of Mme. Lefevre was one which
thrilled the audience. The De Bar Brothers
fndia rubber men, surnamed the Serpentine
"Wonders, astonished every one by their difficult
feats of contortion. Mr. Win. Smead.
the barrel and cross performer, does an act
of which he may well be Proud, as well as
the eight horizontal bar performers in their
great ana wonaenui tumbling, leaping and
gymnastic acts, &c, &c. Dan Rice came into
the ring and made one of his old time witty
speeches which pleased everybody present.
The equestrian performance is under he
immediate supervision of Mr. R. H. Dockrill,
which is a sufficient guarantee that every
part of it is one of the finest shows that has
been here in years.
