CINCINNATI, Feb. 4.—There is ah( avy freshet in the Ohio river, and at 10o’clock this morning the water stood 54 feet 10 inches and was rising. Nearly all the railroads leading Irom the city have to discharge passengers in the suburbs, as access to the central passenger depot w ns cut off", ami a little more rise will cut off some ot the freight depots. Disastrous floods are reported In the Big Sandy, Lit tle s!iami and Licking rivers at Falmouth. f)n tbe latter river distilleries and saw mills and other manulactories are sub merged and have suffered much loss. The river is full ol the contents of fields and gran nerles. Manv bridges on turnpikes were carried ana} throughout the country. Six inches more ol water will cut off tbe street car tracks between Newport and Covington. The river continues to rise steadily at the rate of one inch an hour. In the lower portions of tbe city, as well as in New port and Covington, there are many fami lies moving from the lower floors to the upeer floors, or out of their houses altogether.

Montreal, Feb. 4.—The inhabitants of the county of Two Mountains, thirty miles from here, were startled yesterday on learning that the school-house at Ste. Monique bad been destroyed by fire dur ing the night, and that four young girls who were in It had perished in the flames. It appears that three sisters, aged 10,11 and 12, respectively, daughters or Mr. Ambrose, of Ste. Moriiquo, and another young girl, daughter of Joseph Forget, slept in the place during the night. The scbool-mistress, it appears, was absent, and during the night the place took tire and burned to the ground. The origin ol the tire is unknown. The charred re mains of the four young girls were found among the ashes. MRS. VAN Al 14PIN's. CONFESSION. She Charges Loren Grover AVith a Revolting Crime. From thr FtTork Tribune. Syracuse, Feb. 2.—The announcement this afternoon that Mrs. Harriet Van A uken, who has been in the Onondaga penitentiary here for ten years serving a life sentence for tbe murder of her hus band at West Monroe, Oswego county, had ou her deathbed told the complete story of the crime, caused much surprise. She was convicted entirely on circum stantial evidence. At ner trial it was thought that she had aided in the crime, but she would not incriminate any one. she has been slowly dying from the effects ol a tumor in her iett side. Mrs. Van Auken has been much dis eartened tor a few days, knowing that death was near and that Gov. Hill practically re-* fused to pardon her. A reporter visited her this afternoon, aud hearing the con versation concerning the pardon, Mrs. Van Auken showed her husband's pic ture, which was pasted on the Uy leal in her Bible. She burst into tears. “Would you object to telling me all that you know of Hie murder of wuiob you were convicted." was asked by the re porter. For a moment her lips moved us it in prayer, and then she said: “For all these long years 1 have been sufiering for tue crime ol another. It was Loren Grover who killed Darius Van Aiikell. Gtover and my husband had woids over tue poisoning of a cow. Grover accused Mr. Van Auken of doing it. This was at our house. My husband ordered Grover out ol the house, and dually put him out, as he was jealous o! him. Grover picked up an ax and entered the bouse again, and aling a blow at N an Auken’s bead. My husband fell ami lay ' apparently dead, lie soon opened his eyes and said: “Hat, revenge my death!’ Grover tuen drew a revolver and tired turee shots into his head. He then com | peiled me to get down on my kuees and with the muzzle ol the revolver at mv head promised never to reveal wbat had taken place. 1 promised aud never revealed the secret except to a priest. Grover took the sx and cut mv Husband's head off. and followed bv dis membering his limbs, lie compelled rue to get two bags,and into these he jammed tbe body. A borne was then bitciied to a j wagon and the bags put under tbe ae it. ! Gr.ovev put a spade into the wagon anti j then ordered me to drive three miles to a | lonely spot and bury tbe bags at the loot of an old tree. 1 d!d this. As soon as my husband was missed and ugly stones were circulated, Grover wanted I me to ruu away with bim, but l j refused and sent lor my sister. This an gered bun aud be circulated stories that 1 had murdered \an Auken, 1 was arrest- Ii and, but discharged to;- lack of evidence, i’uen Grover orvutilized a searching pariy and ensily found the body where it had been tinned. 1 was convicted on circum stantial evidence, and have kept my se cret till now.” The autnorit.es think that Mrs. Van Auken’s story is true in some particu lars. but believe that she was a willing witness ot t ie eritue on account ol her previous relations with Grov. r, H* r story will be Investigated ut once. Van Auken was only 22 years old and she 24 at the time oi the crime. He was her Becoptl husband, and luey did uol live bappilv.

Da pe City, Fla., Fob. 2.—Now that the Florida Railway and Navigation Company strikes this historic point, with the Orange Beit in prospect, tbo indica tions point to tne rapid buildingup of this place. A number of new buiidingß have already been erected and several more are contracted for. Messrs. Coleman, Ferguson & Cos. will put up a substantial two-atory store at the site of the Florida Railway and Navigation depot; also, Howard & Cos. After the trains begin running doubt less the business portion of the town will gradually gather at the depot. A Building Loan Association has just, been formed, which, it is confidently ex pected, will do much tor the place. A large and enthusiastic railroad meet ing was held here last night to see it measures could not be taken and induce ments offered to induce tbe Orange Belt railroad to come here instead of Macon. Some $15,000 was pledged in lands or cash, as the road preferred, and the foliowing committee - was appointed to press the matter: G. M. Roberts. J • A. Head ley, E. A. Hall and R. 51. Wilson. The Orange Belt would:touch a very fertiiesection by going through here. With three railroads the town would take anew start, for cer lainlv tbe location and g od lands are here. It only needs some agency to bring them before the world. A Board of Trade will be organized at an early day. The trial of Tom Boyett for shooting Mr. Dominey has been the leading fea ture lor the last week. It seems Mr. Domi ney has an attractive daughter, and young Boyett displayed his good sense and appreciative eye by losing his heart, which, current report says, was recipro cated. The father objected energetically, and forbade the young man to cad on her. ! rue love laughs at locks, stern fathers and such obstacles, and so he continued to call on the objector his affections. Last week Sunday Mr. Dominey aud Boyett met near tne former’s home and a war of words ensued. Dominey, a powerfully built man, though having but one ami, picked up a pine knot and, as Boyett avers, made a deadly assault upon him. He baeked off, warning Dominey that he would shoot, and finally, in fear of bi life, he drew a pistol and shot him through tbe abdomen. Boyett was arrested, tried before a Justice of the Peace and releas ed, the evidence going to prove self-de lense. A few days afterward he was again arrested,hut tne J ustices disagreed. A third trial was held Tuesday, aud was attended by a very large and excited throng. Lawyers on both sides made strong pleas, but the Justices could not agree, one being for sending tbe prisoner to jail, the other strongly urging his release.' Finally they split the difference, and released him on $1,500 bail, the young lady’s grandfather going on the bond. 51r. Dominey is doing well, and it is expected the wound will not prove fatal. Probably a wedding soon will settle the question for all tune. The truck gardeners are busy at work and a large acreage is being planted in all kinds ol vegetables. Melons will be plentiful also, as Dade is famous for her wonderfully large and luscious ones. The oranges are mostly shipped from this section. The trees are in good condition ami will likely bear well the coming year. West Virginia and Prohibition. Charleston, W.
