Fatal Aooidbnt Child Killid bt Falling
raou a PoBca. Quito a bright little girl, of
five year of age, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Necly, who reside on Pike-itreet, near Co
lumbia, fell from a porch in the rear of the
buildinir. Hav before vasterdav. and was in
jured so seriously that she died yesterday
morning at five o clock.
In company with some ohildren, about the
same age, she was play in i? on the porch, the
balustrade of which was defective, some of
tne rounds having been broken out. Sne nad
teen one of her companions pass through
these apertures, and holding on by the rail
ins walk round the outside; but when she
attempted it, she became frightened, lost her
noiuancl ion to tne pavement boneatn, lrao
turing her akull, and, as we have said, caus
ing her death.
Although the smoereit wishes of the heart
seldom escape from their imprisonment, once
in a while it sigh will burst through the in
olosur of the lips, and a prayer, fashioned in
words, asoend to Heaven. This is not often
the case ; for the best prayer Is a heart-throb
or the upward looks of a tearful eve ; but the
sontenoe sometimes is hear J" Father 1 Let
the beautiful ever live." Who will say that
the fact is not mirrored In the wish ? Here
and hereafter it exists, ever young and lovely,
like Psyohe, and not all the arrows of the
arober Death oan destroy it.
This we offer to the mother: The delicate
face and sunny eyes of thy golden-halrod babe
are merely invisible, and in a better sphere,
when thou, too, hast faded from the sight of
those thou bast loved, and by whom thou bast
been loved, the rosy voioe of thy angel ohild
will bid thee welcome to a land where beauty
resides forever, unohanged and unchanging,
Bubolabt on LiBKBTT-STBSBrr. Burglaries,
just at present, in this oity, at le ast, seem to be
the moat popular metnod of thle ring. Almost
nightly some dwelling is invaded by aooundrels
and raniaoked. Ordinarily.- they carry off
notning but money, and thus they elude deteo
lion, while, if tney happen, daring thetr oper
stioni, to be discovered, the chances for esoape
are all In their favor. Night before last a
house looated on Liberty-street, near Syoantore,
oooupied by a German tailor, named John
Holtshelmer, was feloniously entered anii
robbed of $40 in money and several half-made
garments. The burglars climbed through a
window at the rear of the building and found
their booty in a bureau-drawer, whtoh con
tained some other valuable artiofos they did
not happen to discover, or if they did, thought
it would not be best to take. They escaped
deteotion, and not until yesterday at noon did
tne lauuiy become aware that they bad been
honored by tne presence of nootuirnal visitors,
Indianapolis and Cincinnati Railboad.
We are pleased to know that the amount of
travel over the Indianapolis and Cincinnati
Railroad is large for the season, and that tho
aggregate business Is not to be exoeeded by
that of any other road of same loDgth in the
West. The management is awnke to all the
improvements of the day; consequently, the
rolling1 etook is of the best and most approved
kind, and in keoping with the oharaotej of a
first-class road. Their passenger cars, in
oharge of attentive conduotors, are controlled
by the patent brake, enabling the engineer to
stop a train under full headway iu a run of
sixty feet, and are pleasant, comfortable oofl
vejanooi. The Conduotors, Hall, Eustis, Bar
ringer, Lord and Wents, are never forgotten
by thoee so fortunate as to travel with them,
and aid, by their uniform oloverness as d gen
tlemanly oonduot,to give the Indianapolis and
Cincinnati road a reputation at home and

Finale of the Row on the Boulbvaed dr
Sausage. Our issue of yesterday contained
an account of a fight whioh oocurred in a drink-ing-honse
in Sausage-raw, kept by a man
named Patrick Brown, In whioh James O'Neill
was severely injured. The parties were before
the Police Court yesterday morning, although
O'Neill was still very weak from the loss of
The man who had been Injured took the
stand, but refused to testify in regard to the
facts in the case, saying he knew nothing of
the affair. Some other witnesses were called,
who related the oireumstanoes which we have
already plaoed before our readers. In view
of the provocation which had been given,
Brown was fined only $10 and costs, while
O'Neill, for contempt of Court, was mulcted In
a fine of $20 and costs, and ordered to be con
fined in the County Jail nntll they were paid.
Requisition from Kentucky for the Des
perado Kennedy. Sheriff Kessler received
a message from Governor Chaso yesterday,
accompanied by a requisition from the Gov
ernor of Kentucky, authorizing him to deliver
the body of George Kennedy, the burglar,
who, a short time ago, shot George Ballage on
the corner of John and Clinton-streets, into
tho hands of an officer from Frankfort, Ken
tucky. Kennedy, it appears, owes our sister State
eome service, having escaped from the peni
tentiary there some time ago. He undoubt
edly deserves all the punishment ho will
get; for the man whom he wounded here
has not yet recovered from his injuries, and
for this offense and the circumstances con
nected with it, when brought to trial, he will
receive, in all probability, a sentence for a
few years service at Columbus.
Recovery or' a Stolen Watoh. A man
named Forbus had his pooket picked at the
Opera-house, a month or two ago of a valuable
gold watoh and ehain. The different pawn
brokers were notified of the faot, but during
all this time, until day bsfore yesterday, it was
not seen. On Wednesday, however, an indi
vidual offered It at an ofBoeon Vine street, and
it was immediately reoognlied. The pawn
broker Immediately sent for the offioeri, but
when they arrived the man had vanished.
Mr. Forbus was visited, and yesterday morn
ing received hi watch after paying for It a
munifloent reward. , r , ,
cusroL CoNriDSMci Oaue. A man named
David D. Haven, a Pittsburger, stopping at
the Gait House, In this oity, was yesterday
swindled out of $19 50, nearly all the money
he had, in the following manner: He was
met at the Little Miami Railroad Depot by a
man who, after introducing himself, became
so friendly that be was induced at last to
walk up town with him. Upon the way they
talked of business, and just as they reached
the Burnet House, Haven was informed by
nis companion mat ne nan purchased a
lot of books, and that the clerk of the estab
lishment at which they were bought was ap
proaching with the bill, which was $22.
This amount he asked H. to lend him, but
he gavo him only $19 SO, which the swindler
said ho would refund as soon aa he had seen
his uncle, who was in his room at the Burnet.
He passed into the house and thorueh it, out
at the private entrance and disappeared.
Tne poor tellow wnom tie naa so easily sold,
waited long; hut in vain "saw the sun go
down, but still he came not," and then told
his Btory to the officers at the Ninth-Btieet
Convintion or Railboad Tiokbt Agkkts.
The Convention of Tioket Agents yesterday
adopted the rates of passenger fares which
we published yesterday, and after passing
the following resolutions, adjourned, to meet
at Pittsburg on the second Wednesday of
April, I860 :
w niBBAB, The payment of commissions to
outside persons for the purpose of soliciting
passengers is still carried ou to a great extent,
especially by roads in the Eastern States, by
many roads here represented ; therefore,
Mtiohei, That we regard the payment of
commission by railroad companies to runners
and others, as a virtual reduotion of fare by
the company employing them.
Meiohed, That we disapprove of the prac
tice, and will discountenance it to the utmost
on the part of the companies wo represent.
Man Killid bt thb Aocidrntal Dischabgs
or a Gos. A man named Henry Lybarger,
residing near Millwood, in this State, was shot
dead on Wednesday last by the accidental
dischargo of a gun. He was using the butt of
it for the purpose of knooking apples from a
tree, not thinking there was any danger in so
doing, although he know it was loaded. While
In this aot, however, the gun was discharged,
and tho contents entered his breast, killing
him almost iuitantly. He was forty-five
years of age, had a family, and in the neigh
borhood in whioh he resided was highly re
speoted. Sad Apfaib An Old Ladt Bvbnt to
Diath. Mrs. Mary Miller, a lady ninety
eight years of ago, mother of Judge Miller, of
Mount Vernon, Ohio, was burnt to death a few
days ago, at the residenoe of her son. In
passing a hot stove her olotbes oarne in oontact
with it, and oaught fire, while she, being quite
feeble, the result of the extreme age, oould not
exert herself sufficiently to quench the flames,
and before emistanoe reaohed her she was so
badly wounded that she died in a few hours.
Thb Bubnbt House. The following well
deserved compliment to the gentlemanly
proprietors of the Burnet House and their
comfortable establishment we take from the
Cleveland Bttald. It says :
" The Burnet House, Cincinnati, under its
present management, is oertainly one of the
best appointed and managed hotels in this
or any other oountry. Messrs Johnson, San
dors & Co. are constantly on tho look-out for
all the attentious necessary to the comforts of
their numerous guests. The arrangements
of their meal hours are admirable for the con
venience of business men and the departure
and arrival of trains.
Police Coubt. Business was dull as could
be wished at the Police Court yesterday morn
ing, and although twenty-two eases were ex
amined, no inoident cf importance was de
veloped. Math las Miller, who was charged
with the larceny of some unmade eoati, by
Leonard Kobn, of Main-etroet, was discharged
by Judge Lowe. The prosecuting witness was
not certain in regard to his identity, and the
defendant asserted positively that for ten years
past ho had been working for a firm on Pearl
street. A man, whose name we have forgot
ten, was brought in upon two different charges
of assault and battery. A large number of
witnesses were examined and the oases consol
idated. Ho was deemed guilty and sentenoed
to pay a fine of $1 and costs the whole amount
reaohing $18. Rather a large prioe for the
pleasure of going through a "little mill."
Man Dbownrd nbib MillCbebc A man
named Thomas Joyoe, while in an intoxioated
eonditlon, attempted, yesterday about noon, to
ei'OM the river in a skiff, just below the mouth
of Mill Creek. When about half-way across,
he triad to change his position, but in doing so
fell overboard, and before assistance couldreach
him, was drowned. The.unfortunato man, we

Cincinnati Trottino Park. There will be
a raoe over the Cincinnati Trotting Park to
morrow afternoon at three o'clock, with one of
the most attractive entries of the season. The
purse and stake 1b $200, and the raoe two-mile
heats to wagons. From what we have heard in
regard to the horses whioh have been entered,
this is likely to prove one of the best-oontested
"horse disputes" of the season. The extra

Body Iden tified. The body of the man
found in the river near Milicreek, mentioned
iu our issue of yerterday, has been identified
aa that of the ltackman Neiloss, who, it will
be remembered,- was drowned a few weeks
ago at the foot oi' Walnut-Btreet. The man
leaves a wife and two children, who reside
some plaoeon Jackwn-street, and are in quite
a needy condition.

wheat. The wheat market was more
aotive yesterday than on any previous one,
Immense quantities are constantly arriving,
and the result will be that unless there be a
good foreign market the demand will be over
supplied, and prioes will experienoe a re
verse. Intends to Leavr Us. We understand
that Kemp Q. Carter, Esq., the aooompllshed
and gentlemanly Deputy Clerk of the County
Court, intends to resign his position and leave
the city. We, in common with all our oiti
sens, regret this exceedingly, and we can as
sure him that, go whither he may, he will be
accompanied by the good wishes of all his nu
merous acquaintances.
BrKOiAL Election. A special eleotion will
be held on the second Saturday in November
next, the objeot of whioh is to vote on oortain
propositions submitted by the City Counoil
whioh greatly affeot the welfare of the oity.
We give them in full thus early that thoy may
become gonorally understood and fully dis
cussed previous to the eleotion,' thereby
enabling voters to act intelligibly. Thoy are
as follows:
1st. To give power to the City Council of
Covington to sell the bonds of the oity to the
amount of $30,000, payable twenty yean after
date, with seven ptl centum per annum
interest, payable semi-annually at seme place
in the oity of Covington, to pay tbo liabilities
of the oity due and to become due by the 15th
of Jane, 1800.
2d. To authorise the City Counoil to levy
an additional tax of ten eenti on the one
hundred dollars worth of taxable property in
the oity from 1802 to 1860, inclusive, in addi
tion to the taxes whioh may be levied for those 1
years, according to the charter aa it now stands,
to enable the oity to pay the Interest on ber
bonds, and to provide means for the payment
of tbe Marcus Smith bonds;
8d. To give ti.er to the City Council of
Covington t. fell i he publio real property in
the city of Covington, and to .buy other real
property, with the view of locating the publio
buildings in a nun eentral part of the oity.
4th, To give power to the City Council of
Corlngton ts make new Wards In the olty
whenever a majority of tbe members thereof so
vote, after taking a census oi tha Wards,
Police Coust Ywterdat. George Good
man, tbe"conl!dence man," was held to bail
in the suia of $500 for hi appearance at the
next term of the Circuit Court, and was com
mitted in default.
Marshal Griffin, ' who 1 escaped from the
Work-house a few days linoe, and who was
re-arrested last night, was ordered to bis old
Kentucky Csntral Railroad. Next Satur
day is the day on whioh ttie Fayette County
Cirouit Court, called for the purpose of con
firming her sale of the Kentucky Central Rail
road, will oommenoe its session. Great pre
parations are being made to resist the confir
mation by such of the atookholders as are cut
off by the sale. - The attorneys for Cincinnati
and Covington hav had oonsultations on the
subjeot, and will leave to-day for Lexington.
Of course, no one oan forsee the result, but the
general impression among all parties is that
the sale will be confirmed. . As a matter of
general Interest, we append the amount of the
earnings of the road for the eleven months
elosing with September last, and alio compare
It with the corresponding months of the pre
vious year :

Citt Council. Mr. Battesby presented a
olaim from Mr. Herod, for boarding prisoners
and Inmates of the poor-house. Referred.
Mr. Battesby presonted a petition from Mrs.
Welsh, asking that the fine of $23, recently
imposed upon her son, be in whole or In part
remitted. Referred.
Mr. AUnut presented a petition from the
members of the Gorman Protestant Association,
stating that they intend giving a ball on Mon
day evening next, at Odd-Fellows' Hall, for
the benefit of the widows and orphans of the
oity, and asking tbe privilege of "selling ale,
beer and porter on the oooasion."
This proposition gave rise to a lengthy dis
ousslon, in whioh father Allmut, (though he
presented the petition,) enlarged greatly on
moral philosophy, and deolared he never heard
of such an unreasonable request. " Brink ale
and beer at the Odd-Fellows' Hall I Mon
strous 1"
Mr. Momies stated that he had attended a
masquerade at that plaoa at one time, and that
Mr. Allnut was present too, and that though
there was no ale or beer, yet there was plenty
of champagne and bourbon.
Mr. Moore stated that he had drank some
thing at Odd-Fellows' Hall once that Welled
like whisky, and also something that tasted
like vinegar, whioh was oalled wine. It was
no violation of law to sell liquor, if for ohar-
iiaoie purposes, and if tne venders made noth
ing by the trasaotion.
Mr. Cambron said It only aiked a privilege
to oo wnat otners naa done without leave.
Mr. Stevenson thought ale and beer made
more widows than it ever supnorted.
Father Allnut, who had spoken twice, was
seen to be laboring under a state of violent
agitation, so much so tbat Counoil suspended
the rules to allow him to give vent to his
pheelinfo a third time, doubtless believing If he
were "gagged" be would not survive It, ana
his servioes thus be for ever lost to the olty
and his wisdom to the Counoil. He deolared
that when some of "them Germans and Amer
icans got two or three barrels of beer in them,
me woum raise tbe devil; ' and then sat down
completely overcome.
The prayar of tha petitioners was granted,
yeas 9, nays 3.
The committee on Public Buildings wore
ordered to renew the policies of insurance on
city buildings and two eneine houses.
The petition of the property-holders for the
improvement of Robins-street was taken up
and referred.
No other business of iinportanoo was trans
acted.. Adjourned.
Cobreotion. In relating the theft of the
pumps, yesterday, we inadvertently said
"Taylor & Brother," instead of "Miller it
Newport Council. Council met last night
at seven o'clock, being half an hour earlier
than heretofore; President Conlan in the
chair, and Messrs. Caldwell, Allen and Solar
Mr. King submitted to the Board a lot of
redeemed city orders, amounting to over $400,
They were ordered to be destroyed, and the
Treasurer credited with their amount.
Mr. McCracken offered a resolution empow
ering the Committee on Improvements to
have Southgate-alley graded and paved in
front of St. Paul's Church at the expense of
vne city.
This was objected to by Mr. King, who was
not in favor of placing the city furthor in
debt thau she is at present.
Mr, Hayman was in favor of the resolu
tion, because the city had paved in front of
other churches at her expense.
After some little debate, and upon motion
of Mr. Gideon, tho subjeot was laid over for
two weeks.
Tho foregoing is about the amount of busi
ness transacted by our wise dads, and we are
almost certain that a ropetition of last even
ing's work would be apt to place some of our
"hard-worliug" members hore du combat.
Notwithstanding all this, Newport would
possess no attractions without hor Council
and we say, "long may thoy wave."
Chicksn Stbalino, Tho chiokon thieves
have changed the venue of their depredations
from Newport to Brooklyn and Jamestown.
Mr. Charles Stone, of Brooklyn, has recently
lost a number of shanghais by tbe hands of
some villain. The man who will steal chiokens
will do anything that Is mean.
Heavy Will Cask. A man named John
Lee, a baoholor, departed this life some time
since, leaving behind an estate valued at
about $25,000. Of course a great struggle
took place among those olaiming to be his
heirs, and some from Cincinnati entered suit
for the property. The venue was changed
from Campbell to Pendleton County, and the
oise tajed day before yosterday, aud the jury
allowed .tha claimants $11,000. The verdiot
was set aside by Judge Moore, as contrary to
the law and the evidence. It is a case that
will make the hearts of the lawyers rejoice.
Bor Lost. A small boy, named Mark
Thomson, who resides at No. 7 Monmouth
street, has been missing for several days, and
fears are entertained that he has been drowned.
He was about eight years old, had on light
pants, green jaoket, ana shoes.
