A I’hiNCR.—One night last week a man,
apparently about .it) years of age. wearing
a rough exterior, and calling himself Al
Ired Prince, from Italeigh C. || , Mt
Wares Hotel and asked for lodging lor
the night. The clerk informed him that
It would he necessary for him to pay for
hia room in advance, whereupon he volun
teered the information that he was money
less. The matter was dropped here, nnd
the clerk hiisicd himself in caring for the
guests, hut on returning to the office alter
a abort absence, he found thai Ins visitor
had gone, not, however, without leaving
traces behind that sen. uslv affected Ins
rcpututi in lor honesty. It was discovered
that the money drawer had been uncere
moniously thrust open, un.i an amount ol
money some forty dollars, taken out. The
party in question took passage on the
Meet wood, the next morning, lor Cincin
nati, but was intercepted at I ronton at the
instance of the proprietor, who telegraphed
to tlie I .hief ol Police to hold the hcaused.
He was brought back on Saturday, when
he confessed to <h -. charge At the solic
itation ol two of ins brothers, who are re
sponsible men, no legal action was taken
against tlie offender The amount stolen,
with expenses incident to the nrrest at
I ronton, were promptly paid, and the guil
ty party was permitted to go tree
(in Sunday (lie (he wayward Prince was
subjected to a severe lecture from one ol
the brothers, who trosj to convince him ol
the dangerous path lie was traveling, and
urged rathe,- pointedly that if he intended
‘going to h—II,” lie would like to have
linn cl an e his name Hut the other
failed to see the propriety of such a change,
and retorted by saying that if be was on
'he road to that region, his present name

1 he article issuing from Portsmouth,
over the non tis plums of Incognito, shall
have our attention to that extent as will
enable us to correct tbe impression he has
caused as to our position toward the t 'hesa
pcafce and Ohio railroad, the Ohio Valley
Company and the people of Cincinnati.—
I he articles that appear in the Argus are
as free from the dictation of President
Huntington as they are in decency above
the carpingsof thin ambushed <juill driver.
I hat is all there is to that. Second, the
article quoted had no pertinence or oppo
sition to the Ohio Valley Company, but
was called forth by the !ooli*h talk ttie pa
pers along the -i\er were engaged in at the
tune, to the effect that Mr. IIumin^tou
had been acting uotairly with them We
have reason to believe that chene papers
do not represent the views of the people
where published, and therefore they are not
included within the scope of the article re
ferred lo. I hat s all there is to that. As
«o our being apposed t • the action of Cin
cinnati in voting aid for a river road, had
he been conversant with the subject lit* at
tempted to instruct the people upon, he
could hate seen that we have line and
♦gain advocated the construction of a road
to Cincinnati, and had published the pro- ;
ceeding*of the various meetings before the
vote was taken. That's all there is to
tiiat, and with it we pass from further con
'■deration o» Jncogito
IYmii.—Pimli i* the won! for the times, ^
