Telegraph to Covington.


Mr. E. CASE, who built 400 miles of the New Orleans and Ohio Telegraph line, and who is now making arrangements to construct a line of Telegraph from Cincinnati to Sandusky City, on Lake Erie, proposes (the patentees agreeing to it) to throw a line across the Ohio and establish an office in Covington, to connect either with the New Orleans and Ohio line, or with the Cincinnati and Sandusky line, if the citizens of Covington and Newport, will take $6,000 of stock in the Ohio and New Orleans line, or $5,000 of stock in the Cincinnati and Sandusky line.

The city of Maysville subscribed $6,000 in the New Orleans and Ohio line, and it is estimated that the office there will yield a net revenue of $2,000 per annum. We suppose an office in Covington would yield as much.

The business men of Covington, however, will determine the matter as their interests may dictate.
