"Beware of the Bidders."

--A short time ce, in Cincinnati, a young man, in a joke, so he says, introduced a friend to a widow lady of some means. An intimacy sprung up between them, which resulted in an engagement of marriage. The was-to-be groom so won on the confidence of his intended as to borrow from her some sixteen hundred dollars, with which he soon made himself scarce. The sequel to the affair is that the widow has brought suit against the man who introduced her to the deceiver, as a party to the swindling transaction.
