On Monday last, about 2 p. m., Ehnira
Shaw, daughter of Peter Shaw, met with
a fatal accident. The facts are as follows:
She was working at the stove when her
clothes took Ore, and as soon as she discov
ered that her clothing was burning she
made an effort to subdue the fire, hut Jail
ing to do so, she rushed to the hall, wl.cn u
daughter of Mr. J. 1J. Fethcrman dashed
a bucket of water over her. She then
made an effort to get out doors; but the
front door being locked she failed to get
out. From the hall she rushed to the
bed room and got on the bed. By this
time her clothes were burnt off. The
bed also took fire, which was scon extin
guished. Mr. Fethcrman and wife were
from home, and the only inmates in
the house at the time, were her father,
who was too infirm to render any assis

one a boy about tcn-3ears old and a
daughter, about thirteen years who made
every effort to save her. She died about

upon a charge of having hanged two Federal
soldiers during the war, in retaliation for
the murder of his own men. Mosby claimed
to be a regular Confederate officer; but as he
had command of a set of fellows who were

after they had done a certain piece of bloody

acted in 1701, declaring that intention of
marriage must be published in meeting and
posted on meeting houses before the ceremony
can be legally performed, is still in force,
having never been repealed. The statute
has long been ignored, but Judge Shars

Arrest of Counterfeiters.
The Pittsburgh Chronicle, of Dec,
29th, sdys : One of the most important
arrests of counterfeiters wnion nas oeen
made in this State vas effected hi Eric on
Monday, through the efforts of Detec
tives Cooley and Whitney of Erie. The
arrest embraces five of the gang, who
were located in New York, and the seiz
ure of $28,000 in counserfcit Treasury
notes. I1 or some months past tnis gang
has has been doing a thrivir.g business,
and through their efforts the entire oil re
gions have been literally flooded with
counterfeit money. Detectives Cooley
and Whitney determined to discover the
whereabouts of the gang, and, n possi
ble, break it up by capturing the parties
and their stock of money. After con
siderable trouble the officers ascertained
that the gang had their headquarters
near Buffalo, and at once placed them
selves in "connection with it," in police
parlance. One of the officers addressed a
note by mail to the "chief," proposing to
purchase a considerable quantity of the
trash for the purpose of ''shoving" it in
the Oil, Regions. After some nego
tiations the terms of sale were settled aud
the "chief" agreed to deliver the money
by express at Erie. Either from fear of
detection or. of the failure of the promised
remittances for the "stuff," the chief,"
whose name is J. W. Sowlcs, concluded
to send the money by Thomas Uale, one
of the gang.
In due time, Hale, reached Erie, and
immediately upon his arrival he was ta
en in custody by the detectives and lod
ged in jail before he had time to destroy
any of the evidences of' his guilt or to
communicate with his frieuds. The de
tectives then addressed a letter to Sowlcs.
purporting to be written by Hale, inform
ing him that he (Hale) had suddenly
taken ill, and had been unable to deliver
the monev. The letter also referred to
the impossibility of sccrotingnhe money
and urged upon Sowies the necessity of
immcdate presence in .Erie to make the
delivery of the money in person. Tins
letter had the desired effect, as Sowies
started for Erie on the first-train after its
receipt. The train on which the "chief
had taken passage met with an accident,
and a uumbcr of persous were mjureu.-
lle, however, escaped unhurt, and arriv
ed in Erie after scrverul hours detention
Of course he was immediately arrested
and conveyed to jail to keep Hale com
The letter ruse having proved so sue
cessful the detectives determed to resort
to it ajja'in They accordingly took ad
vantage of the accident to the train above
referred to, aud proceeded at once to
Buffalo. On their arrival there they ad
dressed a letter, to the three remaining
members of the gang, purporting to have
been written by Sowies, in which they
were informed that the ''chief'" had his
leg broken by the accident to the train
and that he was at a hotel unable to be
moved. In addition to this information,
the letter demanded the immediate pre
sence of the three, their prompt reply to
the summons being necessary to .prevent
exposure. The foliowiug day the deteo
lives had the satisfaction of meeting their
men at the hotel named, and in a short
time afterward the counterfeiters were
safely lodged in the jail at Buffalo.
The skill and energy displayed by
Messrs. Cooley and Whitney in their
operations reflect the highest credit up
on them. The result of their operations
was the arrest of Sowies and Hale, ant
three others, whose names we did not as
sertain, aud the seizure of $28,000in
counterfeit money. Messrs. Cooley and
Whitney arrived in this city from Erie
last evening, with Sowies aud Uale in
charge. These prisoners were committed
to the county jail, and will be tried at
the next term of the United States Court
in this city. The other members of the
gang will be tried at Buffalo, New York.

Audacious Eobtery. $70,000 Stolen of
a Bank Messenger.
One of the boldest robberies that has
come under our notice recently occurred

corner of Beekman and William sts., iu

passengers, and almost under the very

taining the regular exchanges ot the two
houses. This package was stated by the
officers of the Park Bank to have contain

were secured by duplicate checks, but
this has since proved to be a misstate
According to the statement of the mes
senger, while he was passing the' comer
of Beekman aud William sts., at 9 o clock
yesterday morning, two men in a wagon
suddenly halted at his side. One of
them sprang out, struck him a stunning
blow in the face, at the same time mena
cing him with a pistol, the muzzle of
which he clapped against his breast. Tn
another instaut the precious package was
snatched from the hand of the bewilder
ed messenger. The man leapcl backin
to the wagon with his prize, his comrade
applied the whip vigorously, and the da
ring robbers were out of sight, before their
victim had recovered from his surprise
and terror, which were so great as to pre
vent him from making the slightest out
cry. A crowd collected immediately after
ward, aud the intelligence of the affair
created considerable commotion in the
street, but the thieves were off. The boy
at once went to the Police Station, qnly
half a block from the scene ef theft, and
told his story as well as his confusion
The above account is the substance of
what he said, and, though wearing au air
of improbability at the first, there can be
little question of its truth I he amount
stolen is variously stated. One of the of
ficers of the Bank to which the messen
ger belongs stated at the Police Station
that the package contained $11,000 in
currency and $70,000 in checks but the
cashier of the same bank subsequently
modified the amount in checks to 37,000.
lhe latter statement is correct, making
the amount stolon $18,000.
The police were notified of the theft so
soon after its occurrence, aud have since
acted so earnestly in the matter, that the
robbers will probably be soon arrested.
