I know it to be unnecessary and calculated to awaken speculation, doubt, rumour, I don't know what, in the house.
Я убежден, что этого не нужно было делать, ибо это вызовет в вашем доме разговоры, подозрения, слухи и тому подобное.

The old man did not come round for some time, and at the first rumour of it was positively alarmed; he began to talk of the loss of my career in the service, of the immoral behaviour of authors in general.
Старик долго не сдавался и сначала, при первых слухах, даже испугался; стал говорить о потерянной служебной карьере, о беспорядочном поведении всех вообще сочинителей.

From some rumour, or perhaps from some stray word of Grushenka's, he had gathered further that the old man would perhaps prefer him to Fyodor Pavlovitch for Grushenka.

In vain he assured himself that this disappearance of Kate's was but temporary, and that the rumour of an engagement between her and Ezra was too ridiculous to be believed for a moment.
Напрасно твердил он себе, что Кэт исчезла не навсегда, а слух о ее помолвке с Эзрой слишком нелеп, чтобы хоть на секунду можно было ему поверить.

Every morning he made for the post, and tore open letters and papers in agitation, and nowhere did he find anything which could confirm or disprove the fateful rumour.
Каждое утро отправлялся он на почту, с волненьем распечатывал письма, журналы - и нигде не находил ничего, что бы могло подтвердить или опровергнуть роковой слух.
