I remember the circumstance well, and remember, too, hearing him say on his return that he found some widows living on the property, who had little or nothing beyond their homes. From these he refused to receive any recompense. My mother's father, John Simpson, moved from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, to Clermont County, Ohio, about the year 1819 [1817], taking with him his four children, three daughters and one son. My mother, Hannah Simpson, was the third of these children, and was then over twenty years of age. Her oldest sister was at that time married, and had several children. She still lives in Clermont County at this writing, October 5th, 1884, and is over ninety years of age. Until her memory failed her, a few years ago, she though

Stealing a watch. --John Doyle, formerly a resident of Norfolk, where he sustained an unenviable regulation for his disposition to rowdy conviviality, was brought before the Head of Police, yesterday, charged with purloining a $60 watch from John Simpson, on Wednesday. The prisoner got possession of the article by pretending a desire to purchase, and conspiring with two other cronies to use violence, if complaint was made.--After accomplishing the deed, the trio beat the owner of the watch and made their escape. Afterwards some of the military police found Boyle in the cellar of a house called the Sallor's Home, and he was arrested and handed over to the civil authorities. The theft being established, the accused was committed to jail to be tried for grand larceny. His companions have not been arrested.
