|"Newport, Ky., is opposite Cincinnati, on the
upper side of the Lacking river. It contains a U. S. garrison,
several churches, a seminary, private schools, a rolling-mill,
cotton-factory, etc. Pop. about 3,500. A steam-ferry connects it
with Cincinnati, the boats plying every few minutes during the day."
Appleton's Southern and Western Travelers' Guide, 1849
|"Matt Cooper, of Newport, got to rehearsing some of his foul-mouthed obscenity last night, and officers Burke and Haggemann very sensibly locked him up. He is a nuisance that decent men have to submit to because he is a drunken no account brute. The privileges he is allowed only encourage him in his actions; and when he is fined and doesn't pay he should go to the stone pile as many another better man has had to do." from Covington's The Ticket, November 23, 1875.|
