Fire Last Evening—Loss Fifty Thousand
About ten o'clock last night a fire broke out
in the) candle manufactory of J. H. Rogers ft
Co., located on the corner of Harriet and
Front-streets. The building was Quite a large
one, being four stories high, and contained
quite a heavy stock of candles of various
kinds, together with ths nsnsl appnrtenanoM of
suoh an establishment. . . . .
The origin of the fire could not be definitely
ascertained, bnt it is supposed to have caught
from the furnace. - The flames spread with
great rapidity to every part of the building,
owing to the inflammable nature of the con
tents, and In a few minutes it appeared to be
enveloped in a single blaze. The lurid light
east upon the snow-clad, bills of Kentuoky,
against the sky, and reflected from the river.
seemed for a while to dim the stars, and gave
the landscape and the scene a beauty almost
sublime. -
The flames, several times, were communi
cated to the adjoining buildings, but the
promptness and the exertions of the firemen
preserved them entirely from any serious
damage. The loss to Messrs. Rogers A Co.,
wnose nuiimng, stock ana machinery were
wholly consumed, can sot be less than $50,000.
upon which, we believe, there was only a par-

Affrat A Mar Daroiboublt Irjubid rt
am Odtraoid Hdbrard. A difficulty oaourred
on Saturday morning last, a few miles from
tne city, on the Heading Road, between two
men named John Rairley and William Spokes,
In whioh the latter was seriously, if not fatally
slabbed. We eould not learn the entire par
ticulars, but as related to u, they assume
somewhat the following form:
Some months sgo Rairley, who is a farmer,
employed Spokes to perform some labor for
him, taking him to board in the family. For
a considerable length of time their relationship
was quite pleasant, but the fiend, jealousy, at
last disturbed It, and it became as disagreea
ble as it had before been harmonious. No
words had pasted between them; butS. seemed
Intuitively to feel that his employer regarded
him with suspicion, and probably having given
him some cause, the repelling power daily be
came greater.
The feeling in the mind of Rairley, how
ever, had no basis, save "trifles light as air,"
until day before vesteruay, when be oame Into
the houee and found his wife and Spokes In
suoh a condition as to leave little room for
doubt. Enraged beyond control, he seized a
butcher-knife, rushed upon 8., and inflioted
upon him several wounds, from which it is
feared he can not recover. What has been
the result of the affair we have not been able
to learn, but, under the ciroumstanoes, we
presume that if the wounded man should be
restored to health, no legal oognlzance what
ever will be taken of it; for from what little
we hare been able to gather of the affair, pub
lic opinion is deoidedly in favor of the action
of the husband, whose honor without doubt
has been dealt with foully.
Mistiro or thr Cimcirkati Horticultural
Sociitt. The Cincinnati Horticultural So
ciety met at the nsual hour on Saturday last,
in Bacon Building. The minutes of the last
meeting were resd and approved. The Treas
urer, Mr. William Stoms, submitted his report,
showing a balance of $52 03 in favor of the
Sooiety. Mr. Stoms also stated that the ao
oonnts of the Recording Secretary, E. J.
Hooper, and those of the Treasurer, agreed,
leaving fifty-four cents In favor of the Secre
tary's statements and vouchers.
The retiring President of the sooiety deliv
ered his valediotory address, after whioh the
President elsot delivered his inaugural. Both
of these were well received, being listened to
with interest and attention to the close.
The question of the appointment of commit
tees, severally , on entomology, on all domestio
wines, on sorghum, sirups, preserving of
fruits and vegetables with or without sugar,
then oame np, when a committee of five was
ordered on entomology, the names of whom
are to be submitted at the next meeting.
After some debate, in whioh the moral,
as well ss ths economical, and, by the
charter, unconstitutional, principles of the
subject were somewhat discussed, the matter
of the formation of a oommittse on wines,
sorghum, Ac, was, on motion of Mr. W.
Addis, unanimously laid upon the table. On
motion of Mr. Heaver, the question of the dig
ouselon of the profitableness of the pear in this
locality, was laid over till next Saturday.
The following gentlemen, presented by S,
W. Haseltine, were unanimously elected to
membership; John Blaokburn and Henry F.
West. Adjourned.
Ssrious Stabbiro ArrRAT oh Fboht
strrrt. About nine o'clock on Saturday
night, an affray ocourred on Front-street,
between Main and Walnut, in whioh a man
named Gibbons was severely stabbed bv
another named David Boyle. It appears that
B. had been out to some place, in company
with the wife of G., and when they returned
some harsh words arose In regard to the
matter, which soon led to blows. During the
melee that ensued, Boyle drew a knife and
inflioted several wounds upon his antagonist,
one in tne siae ana enotner in the neok. '
The locality is one of the worst in the oltv.
and is a general resort for all of the lower
classes. The cognomen "Hell's Half-acre"
has been fixed upon it, and, without doubt, it
deserves ths name. It is quite probable the
habits of the persons engaged in the above
anatr were suon as lead directly to jealousy,
and thence, particularly when drunkenness
ocours, to homicide. -
The wounded man is said to be in a very
dangerous oondition, either of the wonnds
under unfavorable cironmstanoes. being suffi
cient to produoe death; and, although alive at
tne latest accounts, there seems to be but little
hope of bis ultimate recovery. . Boyle was ar
rested shortly after the affair, and committed
to the Pearl-street Station-house.

School Board. The old Sohool Board held
its last regular meeting at the oity hall, on
Friday evening, and transacted considerable
business, preparatory to the organization of
the Board elect
The resignations of J. R. Ricke, Miss Anna
MoDermott, recently appointed to a situation
in the Cincinnati sohools, and Wm. J. Wolfey,
of the Central Sohool, were received and ac
cepted. J. M. Bodine was appointed in the
place of Mr. Ricke, Mlas Nolan in the place
of Miss MoDermott, while that of Wm. J.
Wolfey was not supplied.
Resolutions were.offored proposing to dis
pense with the payment of sorip, in favor of
the revision of tne palaries of teaohers, and in
relation to the appointment of a Superintend
ent, all of whioh were referred.
The new Board then organized by the ap
pointment of Mr. Leuba, of the First Ward,
as President, after whioh the meeting ad
journed. Covirotor ard Lbxington Railroad. As
a great deal of interest is manifested in the
final disposition of this road, It may not be
improper to note the fact that an appeal has
been taken in the case of Winslow vs. Coving
ton and Lexington Railroad Company. The
appeal was taken by an individual stockholder
of Harrison County. Subsequently the new
Board of Directors assumed the responsibility
of the proceeding. The oause has been
docketed for the summer term of the Court of
Appeals. In the meantime, the Committee of
Investigation is prosecuting its labors.
Strrrt Railroads. Newport is determined
not to be behind its neighbors in ambition,
although its population be much smaller.
Street railroads are the order of the day; the
evidenoe to the world at large that a town has
thrown off its swaddling clothes and assumed
the habit of a city, and it is important that
Newport bave them, otherwise its true posi
tion and importance might be misapprehended.
Beside, it has an important suburb some
distance above, It is true; but nevertheless, in
'every respect a suburb, for if Newport does
not extend to it the reason it simply because
it is not large enough, and that suburb is called
Jamestown, or more familiarly Jlmtown. It
so happens that between the aforesaid oity and
suburb there is no land communication, ex
cept by means of a road near the river bank,
and during a portion of the year it is some
what doubtful whether this communication be
by land or water; but the general impression
is that It is somewhat mixed, and at times a
cart, at others, a skiff, ia the more appropri
ate method of travel.
The disadvantage is mutual. To our metro-
Eolitan merchants, because they find the in
abitants of Jlmtown exoellent customers to
our suburb neighbors themselves, because
they are oompelled to resort to this place for
the luxuries and necessaries of life, suoh as
sugar, tea, eoffee, dry-goods, lard, whisky, As.
These grievances are no longer to be borne.
The Metropolis and the village most have a
constant, reliable, and aooeeiable connection,
and street railroads are just the neoessary
In view of this. Johnson A Co.. of Cincln.
nati, have proposed to construct a line of
street railroads rrom tne Newport Ferry to
Jamestown, the ears to be placed on the track
within two months from the laying of the first
rail. They propose to oommence work as
soon as a charter is procured and the weather
win permit. .
We believe the investment will be a good
one, ana it certainly win ne a great aooommo
datlon to the people of both places.

The Ohio has continued to rise rapidly since
our last, the swell increasing with every hour, and
nil of yesterday the water was rapidly ascending the
banks. Last evening there were not leas than twenty
lire feet of water between here and Louisville. The
river waa rising at Inst accounts at Pittsburg, and
at Wheeling aud below It waa swelling aa far aa
Louisville. The Ice was running freely and awiftly
on AUimUy, but yesterday the quantity waa some
what diminished, although the Newport and Coving,
ton ferriee were not running after nightfall.
The weather on Saturday waa vailed enough, be
ing rainy, snowy and aleety; but yesterday It was
more settled, though moderate In temperature even
warm for the season.
The Wharf was in aucb a wretched condition on
8 tturday that shipping was somewhat curtailed; but
still business waa tolerably active, and freights in

At Louisville the river was rising rather slowly on
Friday evening, with nine feet one inch water In the
Canal. During the previous twenty-four hours the
river had risen six inches at the head of the falls.
Saturday's Louisville Courier remarks:
The Falls are navigable for descending boats, bnt
at noon yesterday there wore only three feet water
up the middle chute for ascending boats. From the
indications we think the river will continue to swell
to-day, and we think thenlwill be four feet water up
the middle chute. That will enable the PaciHo and
others to ascend the Falls and load at the city wharf.
Haturday'a St. Louis papers say:
The river at thia point Is at praaent stationary, but
on Thursday night fell threomchee. The ice flows
freely past us, and the stream nine fast, giving every
Indication that the passage ia clear below. Business
on our levee yesterday was very lively, and its genial
appearance was very consoling.

Business in Third-street was rather quiet
than otherwise on Saturday, but the demand for
Money oontlnued far In excess of I lie supply, and
the market very stringent, more so than two weeks
before. The Belecting-houses are an ll".t home all
the notes they can spare, and In this v. ay keep their

enabled to make a very fair profit by their selections,
and they do not spare any effort to make it pay.

Friday's New York Times thus refers to Thursday
The State of the market for Money ia something
less disquieting to-day, although the freedom of ne
gotiations is still restricted. A number of new pri
vate leaders, on call, brought their balances Into the
street, in sums of $10,000 to 120,000, and there was,
also, a fair inquiry for prime lists 01 paper, anil, sin
gular to say, with lees apparent discrimination
against the long dates. We hear of '4(36 months'
approved bills being done at t9 per cent., and tbe
leading Discount Brokers report that this class ol
paper is by no means pressed, showing that, so far as
the regular trade is concerned, most ef the mer
chants are content with their 7 per cent. Bank facili
ties, whatever these may be for the moment. At th.
same time we hear of some very good 46A0 day ac
ceptances, sold from second bauds, after being hypo
thecated for money at call, at from 8 to 9X per cent.,
though choice namea are quoted at from 7 to 7H per
cent, of the eaine dates. From the Stock Brokers
the Inquiry for Money Is still active at 7 per cent.
The Foreign Exchanges, this forenoon, pointed to
the furthercheapening of ratos for Saturday's mail,
and a leading drawer dropped his sight bills on
London to 109 per cent.; thus placing, by comparison,
fair sixty-day bills at lOSXioB, aud the very beat
at 1083a percent. No change in Francs; the range
continues wide, f.3.22Kf.S.lK.
Saturday's St. Louis Demoorat observes concern
ing Friday!
Business It quite stacnaht nothing doing, except
that the Exchange market Is brisk at 1 per cent, on
the East, some being bought by brokers aa high at
2h premium for bankable tunds. This extreme rate
of eichange causes the assorting business to be gen
erally resorted to. Currency waa scarce as ever
to-day, some dealers refusing to allow any difference
between it and bankable funds, and others making
only H per cent, difference against Illinois and Wis
