The readers of the Bulletin will re
member that in the latter part ot Febru
ary we gave tbe particulars ot the bur
glarizing of a number ot stores at Arllng.
ton, Kentucky, and stated at the time
that it was believed the burglars were
all men who resided in the community.
This opinion seems to bavo been well
grounded, as will appear from the fol
lowing Irom the Paducali Xewi ot the
2Cth lust., which gives an account ot the
capture of the entire gang:
We learn Irom Capt. F. Whit. Thomas,
commercial tourist lor the cigar and to-
oacco nouse oi uiiiia & Stevens, who
returned this morning from a visit to
Arlington, Ballard county, the parti
culars concerning the arrest of a portion
ot the gang who robbed the store houses
of Boswell & Holt and Rinzo &Mc-
DonalU. or mat place, on fllondav Went.
t eoruarv znu. oi zs.uuuanu S2UU respec
tively. It will be remembered that a day
or two alter the tuelt an account ot the
same was published in the yews, when it
was stated mat Uie suspected parties
were thought to be persons who were
acquainted with the bouses robbed.
though the lob of blowing open tbe safes
in the same would indicate the work ot
experts. The work then begun to ferret
out the perpetrators or th deed was
continued unceasingly by several gentle
men ot that portiou of the county untu
Saturday night last, when their efforts
were crownea with success. It would
seem that tbe mysterious actions of par
ties um suspected lead to their Delng
watched steadily since the robbery, and
that some bad been lightened, or to pre
vent arrest had left for other parts ot the
country. Aothiog however transpired
to cause tbe arrest of any ot tbe parties
suspected, and with the exception of the
gentlemen who were working night and
day to settle upon the offending parties,
the matter had nearly been forgotten and
many ol tbe lowers by the robbery con
cluded their property was gone and the
thieves beyond arrest, lbe old say lug
of "murder will out" proved true in this
as in many other cases, and last
baturuay night developments oc
curred which bad startled tbe
entire neighborhood. That day the par
ties who were "working up tbe case," i
the police say, learned that some ot the
suspected parties were going to Bard
well, a station on the Mississippi Central
above Arlington, and thinking probably
another robbery would be attempted
they arranged to follow. It happened
that some men Lrom each party went to
Hard wt-11 on tbe same train and though
"bait" was laid (by that express agent at
that place telling a brother of one ot the
suxperted parties that he bad considera
ble money on hand, and expected to go
away that nigbt), yet no attempt at robs
bery was made. Tbe suspicious actions
oi some oi tne parties, however, occasion
ed their arrest, when one, probably hav
ing the idea ol a dangling rope or tree
dom before placed before his eyes, turned
state's evidence, to the consternation ot
all who beard blm, and gave tbe names
oi tne gang engageo in the robbery ot
Messrs. Boswell &, Holt and Ringo& Mc
Donald. He stated also that they were
regularly organized, numbered eighteen
members, aud were sworn in lor mu
tual aid and rescue; that thier ren
dezvous was at Meacbam's mill, on tbe
Mississippi river, a short distance above
Columbus, and that he and the others
now there had gone to Bsrdwell to make
a general raid. He gave the following
names a members of tbe gang (to which
we add their occupation), all ot whom
were soon after arrested : W m. Wright,
farmer; Lyon Boyd Jones, loafer; Tom
Pickett, loaler; James Glenn, loafer: R.
L. Williams, barkeeper at Milburn and
tbe leader of the gang; Wat Bales, mer
chant at Arlington and bad good credit,
and himself, Ab. Samms, loafer, the par
ty who turned state's evidence.
Kutus Aioore, colored, wno is thought
to be an accomplice, but wh will be re
tained a? a witness, was arrested last
night at Rives' station, on the P. & M.
road, ne was arrested by W. L. Ringo
and was returned to Arlington to day.
utner arrests win loiiow trie a Dove and
before the week has passed it is expect
ed that tbe whole gang will be brought
to justice. Those captured have been
taken to Blandville for safekeeping.

In addition to Hie robbery mentioned
above it is thought the same gang were
tne perpetrators ot tne robbery at union
City, Tenn., some two weeks since, by
which a business house ot that place
lost some $1,400.
It Is also understood that the gang was
engaged in counterfeiting, and it was
said in Arlington last night that there

Merchant Wno Defends Oar Urv
reryinen lrom the "Nan's" Impn-
i aiin mai inejr marfe too ueto
Cairo, III., March 23, 1873.
To the Editor of Uie BuLlitut :
Dear Sir i I noticed in this evening's
issue of the Sun an article under the bead
of "Whose Fault?" written by some one
who evidently is not posted la the retail
prices charged by tbe grocers. The editor
ot the Sim says : "Complaints haye come
to us that our grocery merchants charge
too much tor their goods," and quotes
the wholesale prices ot St. Louis, viz,
b. bacon 7 to 8 cents; s. c. hams.O to 10
cents," and so on. Now, I have some
little idea of the business myself have
been connected and engaged in the gro
eery business for twenty years, and can
candidly say that most ot the stores are
Belling goods on a very small margin in'
deed. For Instance, sugar cured hams
are sold In our stores at less than 10
cents, and that is not a big price. Next
he says lard is sold at 7 and 8 cents.
Now if the writer only knew the per
cent, of loss in weighing out a tierce of
lard at retail, and then note tbe cost of
tbe article, he would be convinced in a
moment of the Impossibility oi any gro
eery -keeper selling tbe same at less than
9 to 10 cents. Next, every one knows
that good apples are sold every day,
and have been for the list week or two.
at from $4.50 to $5.50 :r barrel here on
the levee and in St. Louis, and they are
very scarce at that, aud a barrel contains
at tbe larthest not to exceed three bush.
Fancy dried peaches at 4) cents is again
wrong ; they are quoted at 5 cents in St.
Loals and Chicago, end are retailed here
at tour pounds tor 25 cents.
Now, for a standard A sugar. Had the
writer only noticed to-day's quotations
in the Qlobt-Democrat be would have ob
served that article quoted at 10 cents ;
then add freight and insurance, and if
0 lbs. for $1.00 is not low enough then I
would like to know what is. ltlo coflee
is being sold every day at retail in our
stores for 20, 21 and 22 cents per pound.
Allow me to remind the writer oi the
article rclerred to that there is no city
within oue hundred miles of Cairo that
sells goods as low us llit-y are sold here.
Further, that no merchant can afford to
sell at less figures and m?et their bills
that Is when tbey pay dollur for dollar,
and not 30 or 40 cents on the dollar.
la conclusion, allow me ;to say that I
do not think the publishing of that article
by tho editor of the Sun is exactly what
would be expected ot a citizen wbo has
tbe interest of the eity as much at heart
as 1 think he has or as he should have ;
for such articles make tbe publio dlssatis
fkd.even of goods were sold for less than
cost, which can not be done.
