United States Marshal C. M.Taylor, of Bax

Branch Saloon, in this city, a young man
named George Smith, who is charged in the
United States warrant with passing counter
feit greenbacks, at Baxter Springs. Smith
is also charged with swindling an old man
out of $500, and a fine ref&lver. Ms. Tay
lor followed Smith to Kansas City, where he
learned that the young man had swindled a
clothing dealer out of $10, and then came to
St. Joseph. The young man who is a very
good-looking crson seemed but slightly
disconcerted by his arrest, an4 accomjianied
the officer with alacrity. Mr. Taylor was
assisted in his search for his man by officers
I lot man and O'Connor. He put up at the

Robbery. $1,390 Stolex the Thief
Captured and the $375 Reward easily
made by two sharp detectives. fri
day night, Oct. 21st, twelve hundred and
ninety dollars was stolen from Mr. Curtis
Kinshury, of Vermont, at the Wiggins
House, by a room-mate and travelling com
panion for five days, named F. Stockman.
Upon awaking in the morning, Mr. Kins-
bury dressed himself, looked Tor Ins money,
and found that it and his room-mate had
once aroused agai
His suspicions were at
against his travelling compan
ion, and at once he took stejis to secure his
arrest. He offered a reward of three hun
dred and seventy-five dollars for the return
of the monev and capture of the
thief. Messrs. Jas. Burke and J. W. Fel
lows undertook the job, and were successful.
Messrs. Rurke and Fellows got on his track
at the dairy, about two miles north of the
city, and, at 11 o'clock that day, captured
him a short distance northwest of Wirtonia;
he was discovered by them iiioti their enter
ing town. The thief,' mistrusting them,
took to his heels, and near a shed threw the
money into the grass, but was detected in tl-.c
act by the shaq eye of Ihirke, who dis
mounted upon arriving at that lxiint ami
picked up the money. A short distance be-
vond the thief was captured. He afterwards,
upon Iwing shown the money, confessed his
guilt tn his cantors. On Monday he had an
examination liefore Justice Davis, and was
bound over in the sum of $2,000 for appear
ance at the next term nf the District Court,

The Texas Legislature compromised them
selves upon a big scheme last spring, winch
many of them arc now regretting. They
crantcd a charter to a squad of a dozen New
York speculators for an international rail
road irom riuion, on ine noi Mirer, in
Northwest Arkansas, to San Pedro del Norte,
on the Kio Grande. J he distance is six
hundred and twenty miles, and the route is
through one of the richest sections or the
Southwest. The parties concerned in the
charter are stated to be John S. Kennedy &
Co., Spofford Bros. Co Wm. K. Dodge,
and other capitalists of this city, together
with T. W. Hou-e and J. W. Uarncs ol
Houston, whoare theonlyTexansconcerned.
and through whose agency the chart- r was
It was represented to the Legislature and
to the Governor of lexas, that the Comiiaiiv
controlkd and owned the Fulton and Cairo
Railroad, which crosses Arkansas from wet
to east, and which would form a connection
with the proiKjscd enteqirise. This assertion
has since Ufccn proved false. Thev nierelv
exiected to inrn it. On that representation
they oUained a grant of $10,000 a mile, in
State bonds bearing eight er cent, interest,
with a guarantee by the State of mortgage
bonds tnithe amount of $'JO,UiU a mile.
These, with the Mate bonds, would net in
market fullv $28,500. As the road can
casilv be built for $22,500 a mile, the Com
pany would realize the handsome profit of
$6,000 a mile, or $3,720,000.
The job is a heavy imposition upon the
tax-pavers of Texas. As there was a strong
opposition to it in the Legislature, the mal
contents were wheedled with many protnies
that are thus far unfulfilled. A number of
tlie members have lately beei to this dry in
quest of tlieir reward, and have either re
turned with empty pockets, or remain here
without the nieans of.leavjng. Abont$200,-

To Ih Mnyr nlhe O'V of Stir York .-
Mv Deak Slit: I have the honor to ac
knowledge the receipt of your jiolite fsvor,
dateil at the Executive Department, City
Hall, New York City, Oct. 21, 1870. After
deploring the attempt ofthe Federal author
ities to belittle the vote of New York city by
appointing an army of marshals under a re
cent law of Congress, ami referring in terms
of scorn and disgust to the contemptible and
wicked census which makes the population of
New York less than 1,000,000. you urge me,
in a highly energetic manner, to do my duty
as a citizen, no matter to what party I belong.
These are v our eloquent words, addressed to
me over your dashing ignntnrc, and under
your official seal:
". "s head of the local government of the
City of New York, anxious to preserve for it
the' honored title of the Metropolis of Ihc
Union, I therefore appeal to you. whatever
the political party to which you may belong,
to lay all other business, isidc if necessary,
either on Monday, Oct.vfl, or Tuesday, Nov.
1, which arc the lat regiry days, and ikt
sonally to register yonr name-, without hav
ing iierfornied which duty you cannot vote."
I am flittered by the interest yon take in
the matter of my voting; and 1 !cg to assure
you in the nnt pmitivc manner that, if it
were possible f- me to be at Imuiic on tlie
days mentioned, I should rally round the
register office (wherever it is) as early as jkis
sible in the morning and regiter my name
in the largest kind of letters. My cviieri
ence in registering my name has hitherto
been confined to one or two is rfowiances on
hotel registers in the Wot; hut I can confi
dently sav that whatever I Aire done in this
wav "has" been done as legibly as any unn
living could have done it. Accept the ex
pression of my regrets at unavoidable als
sence. and (if w asking too much) oblige
me by registering for me.
Yours, my dear Mayor.
P.,S. On closer examination of your po
lite favor I am struck with an unpleasant
snspidon. The signature is certainly yours,
but tlie wlwde letter is twi evidently an elab
orate engraving. The envelope bears this
address: ". lgan, 261 Pearl street, New
York," and J am the only Isnran at 2fi4
Pearl street, New York. Can it lie iossible
that it is all a mistake? that a stupid clerk
with a Directory of the City of New Ytirk
befisraihim, has taken nic for one of the su
perior sexT t). L.
