ter from the History of the Modern
Murrell-The Efficiency of the Great
Pinkerton Detective Agency.
* [From the Memphis Appeal., December io.)
There ls an Impression abroad that no ont
over escapes who attempts to rob Hie South?
ern Express Company. Th li is founded on
the experience of years. That company make
lt a point to bunt down thieves no matter
what lt may cost. Levi Farrington is thc
latest victim of this fearful Nemesis which
no ver relaxes pursuit until death ur the law
clutches in its inexorable grasp the being who
is weak enough lo attempt to rob or embezzle
t Farrington had perpetrated many crimes
Joefure he touched the expr?s*. It was his
/fatality to rush against that rock, und upon it
he split. The first time he was brought to the
notice of Hie Memphis police was last spring
when a gentleman Trom Augusta, Arkansas,
saw Farrington on board a boat ut our wharf
and sent for Captain Aihey lo have him ar?
rested. He was brought lu the sialionhuu??*,
as was also a hoi ne which he was biking with
him to Arkansas. In a few days afterwards
the horse was claimed by a gentleman from
Tipton County, in this Sute, and Farrington
was bound over in the sum ot two thousand
dollars to answer to Hie charge of horse
stealing, but subsequently got out on straw
bail. Home gentlemen came here irom Mis
sour] to seo if he was not Hie person who had
Killed parties in that Stale. They looked at
him through the bars of his cage and
said, "No ; he is not Hie man ; it is
his brother we are aller." Farrington
made a da?h for liberty while being escorted
irom the magistrate's office here tome jail,
breaking away from the officer who had him
in charge at thc corner ot Commerce and
Main streets, and, after running two hours,
had to halt In front of a high fence, and allow
himself to be recaptured and led to Jail. Alter
getting away from here, he immediately set
about the perpetration of heavier robberies
than any he had before participated in. He
associated himself with mtiers, aod, no doubt,
the brother was the leading spirit iu the busi?
ness, as it appears that Levi Farrington, alias
Clarke, was not hali so bad a mun as Iiis
brother, who has not yet turned up. In July
last the train was roboed at Moscow ?tallon,
Kentucky. It was generally believed at the
time that the Farrlugton gang were concerned
lu the job. und again, in October, another train
was robbed at Union City, and again the same
clan were suspected.
It was bn the evening of Saturday, the 21st
of october, the latter rubbery was perpetrated.
3he train, as was lisna', was switched on the
de-irack, and all hands, except one man, the
guard, left the cars, to have supper at some
distance from where the train rested on the
side-track. The switching was done to ailow a
clear through line lor a train which was to
pass abor?, that time, going in a different di?
rection. When the coast was all clear, two
men jumped into the express car and told
the guard to keep quiet at the peril of his ?ile,
while others gel upon the engine and com?
menced backing the train down the track.
Pistols were held at the head of Mr. Thomas,
the guard, and he was requested io hand out
the keys of the safe, which he did. Themen
wenl through Its contents, taking all the
money there waa, amounting to about, intern
hundred dollars. When they had secured the
the booty, they signalled toe engine to stop,
. and all hands got oil'and took to the woods.
?F As the robbers started the train, a negro
man at the station notliled the engine driver
and conductor ut their supper of what had
happened, they started down the truck after
the train, and'when they reached lt found
everything ull right except Hie express car.,.
The guard related the story, which wus so
strange i hat il asl ul mied a i handy. On the
engine one of the thieves lett u small suche',
which contained a loaf ut baker's bread ?ind a
piece uf barun. The authorities tx | .>? express
company were nu'.illcd ol the altair, and in ?j
shun Hine Hie superintendent, M. J. O'Brien,
and the assislaut superintendent. Mr. Wurley,
weic un tho ground, and hud made their
decision what to do In the case. Pinkerton,
ot Chicago, was sent for. and, in conjunction
willi Put. Ouu neil, uf I Ms city, commenced
op?rai ions, starling out with the mitchel
mid its CHU ruis us a basis for operation.
From Hie descriptiuu ul' the men, Connell
suspected that ll was Hie work ul the Farring?
ton family. In November they had truced Hie
Furriiigio'is to a place called Leister's Land
below Hickman, Kentucky, und ubmil
-twenty mitt s from Union City. "Here the offi?
cers went, walked into the house where lue
thieves were in company with a number ol
other men ot like kidney, and had a bold tight,
but failed to capture Hie birds. Pinkerton and
Connell got some scratches Irom pistol bulls
in the encounter. The Fuiriogtons and Bar?
ton, Hie other youth concerned in the adair,
got away. Shortly after this, we published un
account in the Appeal of the uiuvements of j
the Farringtous, in which it was eluted that
the mother of the family wus ubuut lo
remove from Waverly, a station on the
Nashville and Northwestern Railroad, to
Texas. She had circulated that story,
and it coming to the euro ot Connell
and Pinkerton, they resolved to profit by thc
information. They had by this time sur?
rounded themselves wit h a good force. Two
of their men were dispatched to Waverly lo
make acqualuiaoce willi Mrs. Farrington.
One of them hired with her as a teamster, and
the oHier kepi hovering around to observe
and to notify his chief what was going un. In
this way they learned thul Mrs. Kari logion
was nul hound lor Texas, but for Missouri,
where she Intended to locate in the nelghor
houd ol' her relations, at a lillie town culled
Verona. Detectives were at once dispatched
to Verona to watch lor Hie Furringtons. Con?
nell and Pinkerton also went in dur?rent
characters. Two of their men hired thein
Pselves out as farra laborers to ihe uncle of the
Furringtons. The thieves were truced lu their
holes, und lhere surrendered on last Tuesday.
Yesterday we received the following dispatch,
which tells how well the plans ol' Hie officers
ST. Louis, December 15.
William A. Pinkerton und S. T. Gallagher, of I
Pinkerton's Chicago Ootective Agency, aud Con?
nell, of Memphis, left here last night for Union
Oliy, Tennessee, having In charge Hillery Far?
rington, alias Henry Hark, and William Barton,
charged wli h robbing a Southern Express Com?
ply messenger, by boarding trains at Moscow
ad? Union City, on the Mobile and Ohio Railroad,
lani. July and October. These mon were arrested
at Verona, on the Atlantic and rac I tlc Railroad,
lr: the extreme southwestern part of this State,
and were captured only after the houses In
which they took refuge were securely barri?
caded from the outside and then Bet on Ure.
They are d-sperate characters, aad are charged
with murder as well us robbery. Their arrest, it
ls believed, will bave the effect to break up one of
the worst gangs of desperadoes ever in the Weir.
From this it is plain that there was a despe?
rate struggle, and nothing short of the com?
plete and effective means adopted by the ex?
press company could have accomplished so
desirable an object as their capture.
Barton is an equally desperate character,
but seems to have a greater love ol' life than
Farrington, because he Is less experienced,
and has brighter holies of the future than the
others who found nothing but disappointment
and missen- in this world. Barton was known
usu brakeman on various rai: roads in I lils
State, hut his bold spirit revolted against that
slow way of makinr money, so he struck out
and Joined the bun ..
TUE Li r OF FARRINGTON".
On the way froi J the scene o.' Hie capture to
Union City, win re Hie prisoners were to be
tried for their erl nes, Burton made u full con?
fession to Pinkerton us to both the robberies,
the ene at Mo*cov and the one at Union Citv;
that is, he showed his willingness io turn
State's evidence m Farrington. Parring!un
became aware ol' his,, and grew desperate.
Between CUTO an I Columbus, yesterday
morning, while corni "ig down on Hie transfer
steamer, he called Pinkerton oui on Hie
guards, sa}lng lie hud something to communi?
cate. Pinkerion bein;: a cautious ?ind wary
fellow among such cha acters, carried lils pis?
tol in his hand. When however, they gut on
Hieguard, Farrington managed to snutcti the
weapon from his hand and presenting lt ut
his ?pad. said: "No\', you have nose the
best ol me!" The detective saw the Inbles
were about to be tun ed, so he lest no time,
but closed willi his msailantat unce, ut the
same time notifying Cc oneil to come to Iiis as-1
slslance. Connell was on the spot Just in HUH
to seize ila* pi si ol a? ii exploded at i he head ot
Pinkerton. Tho prompt manner ia which
Connell moved, however, saved Pinkerton's
lile-Hie ball grazing Iiis head, and the pow?
der blackening his lace. Farrington continued
lo struggle; he hud made up his mind for a
desperate encounter. Ia the fierce flghl for |
liberty, and life, perhaps, he was thrown over
the girard, Ute wheel ol Hie boat struck him on
the head, and lie was seen no more, lhere ap?
parently being no r>pportauily for escape.
Farrington'}* object may have been to wreak a
desperate vengeance on his persistent captor,
Pinkerton, who is recognised as the most dread?
ed enemy ol such characters; but lt is more
apparent thal Pinkerton, having Barton's full
and unequivocal confession as lo the partici?
pants In the two express robberies, besides
murder cases ia which the Parring)ons were
Involved, Farrington thought, if he could gel
Pinkerton oui of Hie way he would yethuve
a chance io escape the meshes ol' the law. As
it If, he has only met a merited fate, and al?
though by his' desperate attempt tue result
deprived the gallows ol a victim, good citizens
will rejoice at the result. The coolness and
Intrepidity of Pinkerton anti Connell are lo bc
commended. The express company lost only
$1500 bv (lie robbery, but have expended
over $5000 in the effort to hunt down tho
At a late hour, last night, we received the
dispatcli below, which confirms our Impres?
sion thal Farrington'-* brother was ihe real bad
maa In the whole business-the same that was
wanted by the gentlemen who came here from
Missouri lu search ol' him last summer. Here
is the dispatch:
lt was Hillard Farrington, alias Clark, who fell
overboard in Hie scuiile with thc detective. Lev!
Farrhigtou. alias Russell, waa captured to-day at
Farmington. Illinois, after a nght, by Robert Pink?
erton. Barton ls in Jail al Union CHy, Tennessee.

night through Hie Associated Press, and con?
