Poobet-Piokino- Extraordinary. Day
before yesterday a young man named A. 0.
Myers had his pocket picked of a wallet con
taining $49, while standing on Front-street
and gating at our beautiful river. A genteel
looking man came along and apparently acci
dentally ran against him. He stopped, placed
his hand upon bis shoulder, wished to be par
doned, bowed politely and disappeared. He,
wholly unconscious, returned to his board-
ing-nonse, wnen ne was tout teat nis panta
loons were torn; and upon examination be
discovered that the pocket had been cut and
bis sorte-monnaie extracted. He then re
called the circumstances under which he sup
posed it was taken from him, but the adroit
pickpocket has not since been seen.

The Hail—Franklin Research Enterprise—
The Hail—Franklin Research Enterprise— Letter From a Member of the Kane Expedition
As onr readers are already aware, Mr. C.
F. Hall, for many yean a resident of this city.
will leave to-day npoti an expedition in search
of the remains of Hir John Franklin. This
enterprise is exciting considerable attention
among the Arctic: navigators of both conti
nents, ana particularly in rvnginna, wnere
the scientific nien hold that Mr. Hall can not
visit King William s Land during the Slim
mer. The following will show th fortitude
and determination with which our townsman
has undertaken to solve the problem:
When the doubts or the Kngusn navigators
were made known to him bv Henry Gnnnell.
of New York, Mr. Hall replied: "My mind is
mnufl up ruu vrivi, me, will a v tibi, muH
William's Land, search and research over it,
especially Its western coast, in the summer,
On this Land and Boothia I will spend two or
three years, to determine the unsettled ques
tion relative to the Franklin Expedition."
Our Arctic whalers and many others
whose views on the subject have been con
sulted, have no doubt of the success of the
present expedition, and seem to he pertcctly
satisfied that something may be accomplished
on the proposed plan.
The followinar letter from Thomas Hiikev.
one of Dr. Kane's most reliable and hardir.it
men, is excellent evidence in favor of the suc
cess of the enterprise of Mr. Hull, of which
we have little doubt. Mr. Hickejr writes as
"C. F. Hall, Etq., Cincinnati, OWo. Pre
vious to the return of Lady Franklin's late
expedition, I learned that you were actively
engaged in forrnintr a Maritime Expedition
to proceed by way of David Strait, to co-operate
in the search for Sir John Franklin and
his companions. I now hear that you are
confident that some of his men still exist
among the Esquimaux, and that you propose
an expedition to determine tnis uane ques
tion. "I was a member of the memorable Amerl.
can expedition in search of Sir John Frank
lin in 1853, '64 and '55. commanded by the
lamented Dr. Kane. During the residence of
our party in the Arctic regions we experi
enced many severe trials: but I must sav, the
major part of them emanated from our mode
oi living, wnen we uvea as Esquimaux we
immediately recovered and enjoyed our
"If Providence had so ordered It that we
should not find our way back to civilization,
but should cast our lot with Esquimaux, I
have no doubt we would have lived. Derhatw.
quite as long, and in quite as good bealtb, as
in the United States or England. Had we
lost our commander, I confidently believe
not one of our expedition would have re
turned, uur countrymen mignc nave come
to ns, but we could not have gone to them.
White men can live where Esquimaux can and
frequently where and when tbey can not,
This I know by experience.
"The heroic Captain McClintock made t
speech at a late meeting of the Royal Geo
graphical Society of London, which contains
several statement that are ingenions in con
ception, but nevertheless are at variance with
"Little did I think, on return in or to the
United States with my companions and be
loved commander, that I would ever again
go to the .North, but believing, on my soul,
from a practical life in the Arctic regions.
that you are right in entertaining the opin
ion that tome of Sir John Franklm't men are
yet to he omul living with the Esquimaux, and
thai they tnouia oe retcuea ana retiorea to meir
eountru and fritndt. I hereby cheerfully offer
my services, and volunteer as a member of
the Kxpedition you propose to organize.
"For direct evidence of me. and my de
votedness to this cause, I would refer you to
41 . . 1 C '. 1
me written wor&s ui uiiu wouse memurv auu
name I almost worship Dr. Kane."
The plan of Mr. Hall has been already
tublished at length. He will sail from New
ondon, Connecticut, on the 20th inst,, for
Aorthumheriana inlet, tatting witn mm a
number of Esquimaux guides, and disem
barking there, will proceed across the country
in a sledge manufactured by the Messrs.
Bruce, carrying with him the best wishes
and prayers of two nations for his complete
success and sale return.
