Marioit Tuesday, and from him we
learn the following facts :
Gilkey arrived at 'illiamsb'irg. v?nt
to the jail, and identilicd Rowe as tin
man who had married a Ui? Amanda
Dellinger in this place some years ag,r
and afterwards Jeft her and some chil
dren without means and went to Ken
tucky. He won the heart of Miss Martluv
Newport, of Williamsburg, and wa?
married to her in April ISO!. The two
got along splendidly until a short time
ago, when Rowe got on a six weeks
drin k, and his wife No. 2 searched h
trunk, and made the startling discov
ery that he had a wife and children in
this Stat-, finding in the trunk nume
rous letters from Mis Rowe No. 1. She
reported the discovery to her father,
and Rowe was at once placed in pri'sou.
The second wife belongs to one of the
best families in that section, and her
father had given Rowe valuable assis
tance financially. He was running a
good hotel at the time it was discovered
he had two wives.
The case was ne t decided when Mr.
Gilkey'left, but he says the j eople are
very indignan and Rowe is sure to go
to the penitentiary.
Mrs. Rowe No. 1 and children are
now living in Cleveland county.
