awuro of tho report, which juit at that
time was going tho rounds of tho scandal
mongers, nt onco denounced it
as false, and commenced a' search
for tbo author of tho slander.

them for a short time, becamo dissatisfied,
and returned to Cairo, aud, as above stated,
gnvo out that Murphy and Mrs. Carleton
had gono oil' together, nnd InftCarloton in
