and nights, and sometime weeks, took the
place of the'ordinary stated ministrations, and
tne water nowing irom tne smitten iock o

VVafcA and rray. Kht veteran preacher
told several humorous anecdotes of his per-i
sonal experience. When he first commenced
exhorting sooner took occasion to annoy him
at his devotions. On on occasion a few young
men invited him out on a bank of a river to
oravfor them. He doubted their sincerity.
but went with them. He prayed but kept his
eyes open, for sure enough one grabbed him
by tbe arm on one side and one on the other,
to hurl him over the bank. He olinohed them
both and the three were duoked together.
Take Ur Your Vron.n was on his first
circuit in 1804, on Salt Rlrer, where Oliver
Lee bad preached, wnose text on one oooa.
sion was, "If any man will be my disoiple,
he must deny himself and take up hit oroi
and follow me."
After the sermon was over, the preaoher
mounted his horse and took the road to his
next appointment, and overtook one of hi
hearers, a Dutchman, with his-wife on hi
back. On being interrogated if his vrow was
hart, the Deltcher replied, that he had told
him to take up his cross, and nis scolding wife
was the greatest eroBS of hli life. He got off
and prayed and talked with both nntil they
were both of one mind in the love of God.
He advised that if any husband present had
suon crosses, to nacK tnem.
The Medicine for Jtrk: During the
lime that people were taken with jerks,
he had occasion, from the condition of
his health, while preaching, to take out
phial and sip a few drops of peppermint. A
young lady before him having taken the jerks
soon after, the brother at the door was about
to horsewhip Cartwright, who seeing that the
man nonestiy Deiieved he had tbe power in
the phial, drew U from his pooket and ad
vanced, saying, "If it affected the sister, so it
shall the brother, and the brother lumped
the fence. The sister and brother soon be

Paving Ih Sill in Prayina. In 1816 he was
a delegate with father Walker, of Illinois, to
GeneraUOonferenoe in Baltimore. They had
to go over the mountains on norsebaok; when
in the Cumberland Mountain of Virginia a
drunken landlord refused to allow tne preach
era to hare prayer. Cartwright reasoned the
point: you allow swearing, drinking, card-
playing now, other guest have their way,
we will have our way; father Walker, von
ray, and 1 will noiu mm it he cuts up any or
us shines. The landlord was a universalis!,
and abominated the brimstone bag of the
Methodist preaoher, who, he declared, only
wanted to pray out his bill. The landlord's
wife proved a friend to the preachers, and
chalked their hat next morning.
Breaking Up a Vance. U put UD at
tavern in a place where preaching had not
been heard for twenty year. He oould get no
room to sleep in, as the neighbors were gath
ered at the tavern for a dance; he could not
go further, and contented himself with a seat
by nimteirat tne nre-stue. a nappy-faced
yellow fellow kept lively mnslo with the fiddle.
when a likely young lady came to the silent
preacher, Inviting him to dance. He hesi

He took her hand and his plaoe with her on
the floor. Stop there, he said to the darkey,

taking, I have been taught it a a duty to
ask a blessing from Deity. Down on hi knees
he went, holding the lady tightly by the hand
he prayed with fervor, the negro bolted to the
kitchen. Several ran, some squatted, hut
boor the girl fell on her knees and cried for
meroy: the landlord soon sought special pray'
ere for his soul, and the result was tears and
reioioing and shaking of hand.
He told other anecdotes Illustrating the ex
posure, the discomfort of the life of the pio
neer preacher, but spoke of the joy and com
fort of their minds, of the earnestness with
which their manhood and vigor had been given
for their fellow-men.
A happy audience was that whioh attended

rt thr Fall or a Stick or Tihbri. A car
penter, named John Sprunk, who reside in
Storrs Township, a short distance from the

by the fall of a heavy piece of lumber. In
company with a fellow-laborer, he was at
tempting to remove it from a large pile of the
same material, when he missed his foothold
and fell to the ground, dragging it with him.
The right arm of the unfortunate man was
broken, together with several of hi ribs, while
he also received lome injuries in tne lower
part of the abdomen. His physician seem
to think, judging from the symptoms, that
one of the broken ribi has punctured the lungs,
whioh, if the surmise prove true, will render
his recovery almost impossible. Mr. S. ha a
wife and two children dependant upon him
for support, and this fact causes the aocldent
to do doubly painful.

Fbrsorai.. r7e yesterday had the pleasure.
of taking by the hand Mr. William H.ty,
formerly ef our eity. When Mr. H. left us, he
was in the full enjoyment of slngle-blessei-neis,
but during his two years of absence, in
Tennessee, he has become entirely metamor
phosed, and has united his fortune with that
or one or tbe daughters of that State. We
wish them happiness in abundance.
Iiipbovsvbntb Eiquisrdk The location of
Covington is peculiarly favorable, In many re
spects. It is the terminus of the Kentuoky
Central Railroad, the only avenue of trade
with the Interior of the State, the only route
by whioh the surplus product of the Blue
Grass region oan be carried to market, and
the only one by whioh the wealthy farmers of
that section can reotive snoh articles as are
indispensable to their comfort, or which add
to their luxuries. This commanding position,
if adroitly used to its advantage, must ever
give this city advantage not possessed by
others of the sams class.
It should be the policy of the property-owner
to invite capitalists from abroad to invest
In cotton, woolen, iron, and other manufac
tures, whioh oan easily be accomplished if
the proper facilities are offered.
In order to effect an object so desirable, five
things are necessary. First. A thorough and
complete system of street Improvements.
Second. The oonstruotion of street railroads.
Third. The erection of water-works. Fourth.
The completion of the Covington and Cin
cinnati Bridge. Fifth. The extension of gas
facilities, that they may be adquate to the de
mands of the whole eity.
With reference to the Improvement of the
streets no new impetus is required. The Coun
cil is taking a liberal view of the subjeot, and
making, as rapidly a possible, all necessary
provision to secure everything that is desira
ble in eonneotion with the matter.
Street railroads and the bridge are intimately
connected, and in a great measure are depend
entupononeanother. Their completion would
bring into the eity men of eharaoter and stand
ing who do business ia Cincinnati, and who
would erect residences and improve the ap
pearanoa of the place. Water works are
absolutely essential to the existenoe of exten
sive manufacturing; and better gas facilities
are required by all classes or people.
It is for the people to decide whether a lib
eral or contracted policy shall govern in the
future, and whether Covington shall take its
proper rank among cities, or remain forever
a mere dependency of Cincinnati. If the
proper line ef policy 1 pursued, most of the
money now forwarded to th East for cloths,
Iron, Ac, could be retained here. Each inter
est will assist every other, and an era of pros
perity hitherto unknown will be Inaugurated.
jAru There are now thirty-one prisoners
in Jail, the greater portion of whom are await
ing their trial before the Circuit Court, at its
next term, commencing in aiarca next.
IiiPROVRH rkt or Mabisor-btrrrt. Out city
authorities have commenced the improvement
of Madison-street, above JflltB, by covering It
with a thick layer of limestone. The neces
sity for this ha been apparent for some time,
as the portion of the street named has been
almost impassible during the greater portion
or tne winter.
Cirr Coorcii. The City Fathers meet to
morrow evening to take some definite notion
on the subject or street railroads.
Wibtrb IR Caliporria. A Sacramento
letter writer describe th winter in California
thus: "Lilies are in bloom, together with the
chrysanthemum, tne geranium and in climb
ing plant which adorn th porches. Here
and there, too. you will see the white rose vic
ing with th lily, and the red drooping In the
presence ef tne nardier nowert, under the cool
moisture oi in nignts. vi ne ouas oi in pas
lion flower are swelling, and the green pointed
head of th hyaointh and crocus, and the
daffodil have broken the ground."
A Sao Lipb-Histort. Kate Laoount, ones
one of the handsomest women in St. Lonii, and
torn years ago worth $50,000, recently applied
for admission to the County Poer-hoose. Five
year since a man of the name of Wilson mar
ried her or at least she upposd she was
married to him, but it seems the ceremony
wa a fraud and he in om way got hold of
her property, sqandered it, and left her desti
tute. This was the beginning of misery.
The story from that time U not an cnoomnon
