Nl.w (' vitl il I Nov 2i - The fact that
we have a gang of thieves ,vho have betn
making this village their base of operations
cannot, in view of rec nt developments, be
disputed. 'I heie have been noticed for some
time a miintitrnf )oung men loalmg around
our street corners and frequent patrons of
our saloons who are without an) visible
means of support, vi t of some secret means
the) keep up some show of respeetablllt)
and manage to live. s stated, smie facts
have come to light late!), that go to show
that tlie pilfering and cttv stealing whiih
has been goui on litre is done b) our own
fellow-citizens, and that the parties are
well organised ami work on a s)stematic
plan tliere em be no doubt Kobes, whips,
uliukt'ls, vvht at, t lov erseed, calves, beef
hides, turkev s, ami, in fact evtr)tluug that
can lie turned into mom) with the least
possible labor or d mger. Tro) and hpring
lield have been the plvces of sale, and so
Ixildl) Ins this business lieen carried on
that the parties are well known, et our citi
zens are making no effort to rid themselves
of the mimnie. We don't like to sa) that
our liest citizens are living in fear, or that
there is a reign of terror here, but we do
sa) that our people are not meeting the evil
with that nerve and determination that the
good name of our villiage and the safet) of
propcrt) demands. The rascals have on
more than one occasion, in order to intimi
date the propertv holders and dc
investigatioii. made use of the torch.
Incendiary work has been boldly
threateded, and still no ef
fort is made to break up the gang, or pun
ish the v illalns. When suspicious charac
ters bolillv offer stolen goods for sale on our
streets, and citizens of vv limn vv e had a
right to expect lielter things are eager J
purchasers, liecause the articles weie sold
cheap, and even attempt to secret the '
goods, when the) knew the proper owners
were m search of the same, it shows a bad ,
state of affairs. Our officers seem to be
powerless when crime is rampant, and
well-known thieves walk our streets boldl)
Hut let a cow or a horse stra) for a moment
from its owner, the) are very read) to per
form their official dut). and hasten for the
fees. Even let a few pigs wander from a'

but a notorious thief can do as he pleases,
and our heroic officers are helpless to pre
vent. Mi line upon such work, and it is a ,
shame to any corporate commuuitv to have'
such a set ot imbeciles in authoritv. . The '
efforts of our churches to sta) the tide of
crime, that appears to lie growing in mag-f
mtude at this place, deserve the supjMirt
of even good citizen, whether he is a church
member or not . The union sen ices at
the Christian church on babbath evening
last was unusuall) interesting The Kev I
Mr Choite delivered a remarkable sermon .
on the evils of intemperance, which was'
listened to with marked attention by a '
large and appreciative audience. At the ,
close of the serviie a citizens' meeting was
called to meet at Town hall, Mturda)
evening, to consider the matter of Sabbath
desecration ami to adopt some means of
closing the saloons of the village. It is
hoped that our citizt us will take hold of
this mitttr, and uphold the hands of those
who are disposed to take the lead. The
evil Is a gigantic one, and em not be-suppressed
an) too soon. N'ovv is the time to
have something jiractical; we have hid talk
enough. The law is vv ide enough in its pro
v iioiis to meet the case. Let an educate'
