The Herald, with characteristic
malignity, ascribes the attempted
suicide of a lady rooming at the Nel-
son House, to an article in last Sun
day's News. We leave it to any
fair-minded, or sensible person, if
there was a single word in that arti-
cle that "reflected" upon the parties
referred to? The occurrence was
reported to us as a good joke upon a
jealous young man, who imagined
himself to be shot by the bursting
of a bottle of beer. The affair was
the subject of considerable remark in
certain cir;les and we simply gave it
publicity, without any intention to
"reflect" upon anyone. The real cause
of the animus of the Herald is that it
did not hear of the comedy until it
appeared in this paper, and of course
it has to exhibit its splenetic nature
by attacking the News. We regret
that any one who has sufficient in-
telligence to write for the press,
should allow himself to be prejudic-
ed to such an extent as to misrepre-
sent and distort the motive of a con-
temporary. We could give several
theories for the lady's attempt at
suieide, but as we are not dealing
with suppositions, we do not consid-

An amusing thing happened to a
married gentleman a few evenings
since, while on his way home on
Gandy street. As he was passing
along, his mind filled with the do-
mestic joys which awaited him, he
was surprised to hear a voice com-
ing from a lady in the front yard,
saying, "O Mr. ,is that you?"
The gentleman turned around and
gazed at the fair questioner, and
was about to see farther into the
matter when the lady, observing that
she had made a mistake and given
herself away, turned and went into
the house. The question naturally
arose in the genticman's mind what
did this grass-widow want to call
after Mr. — for, and why did
she go into the house upon recogniz-
ing her mistake? The gentleman
who gave us the item charged us not
to give away the parties, and we
promised never, no never to mention

To Be Contested.
I; is stated that the election of
Mr, MiclucJ, J^weeney, the council-
man elected in the 4tn ward, will be
contested. Mr. Cox applied for and
received a copy of the poll list, and
his friends claim that quite a num-
ber of names appear on the same
whose owners do not reside in the
4th ward and some who had not been
in this town a sufficient time to en-
title them to vote. Perhaps there
are a few of those, but as the officers
of said election were from amon^
our oldeBt and most respected citi-
zens, men who know nearly every
voter in the 4th Ward, it would seem
almost impossible that the number
of illegal votes can be more than a
few. The vote polled at this election
is only very little, about ten, in excess
of the vote cast at the Mayor's elec-
tion last June, which is another ar-
gument that the vote was cast by
We scarcely believe, however, that
Mr. Cox intends to contest, as any
proceedings in this matter would
have to be instituted in the district
court, and these proceedings would
prove to be very costly. The re-
turning board for the city have de-
clared Mr. Sweeney elected, and his
commission, under the seal ot the
city, has been issued to him, which
settles the matter pretty effectually,
unless, as above srated, recourse
should be had to the district court,
which meets in October.
But even before that court the
chances for setting aside the elec-
tion, which gave Sweeney such a
rousing majority, are so exceedingly
slim that we would advise the par-
ties concerned to be satisfied and
bow to the will of the people as ex-
pressed at the ballot box.

seems that the husb-md of said Wo-

love and had transferred his anec-

ter of course, enraged the woman
and a war 6f words ensued. The
witnesses summoned, however, were
possessed of such short memory, as
their ears wer6 filled with cotton;
they recollected almost nothing and
hail heard nothfng. Consequently his
honor discharged the woman with
the advice "to bear and forbear."
