While bis many friends will congratulate

This is Indeed a fast age; people cat
fast; talk fast, and ride fast, but tho rapid
ity with which ono of our esteemed readers
who borrows Tim Bulletin yesterday
unloaded himself of curses in this office
was enough to make tho telegraph sneak

humbled manner and kick it-elf. He
appeared to be h!oring under the erron
eous impression that Tin: Bulletin had
treated him in a "give-hini-a cold potato-and-let
him-go" sort of manner. This was
cruel this was heartless, and, need we
say that, feeling our innocence, we buried
our face in our hands and wept? But

The Carmi excursion train, which yes
terday came down on the Cairo andVincenes,
was full of men and women, all bent upon
availing themselves of the cheap fare to
come to this city and lay
in a supply of holiday goods. Every

A BOLD ROBBERY.
At about 0 :!J0 o'clock yesterday evening
a negro entered the clothing house of Mr.
A. Marx, on the levee, and asked to be
shown a kind ot goods that were kept in
the back portion of the store. There being
no one present in the store at the time but
Mr. Haas, that gentleman asked the negro
to step to the back of the store, where he
showed him the goods desired. While en
gaged in doing this he heard a noise near
the front door und looking up, saw a negro
running out of tho door at full speed.
Suspecting that something was wrong, Mr.
Haas ran forward and found the money
drawer standing on the flow behind tho
counter entirely cleaned of its contents,
amounting in all to about three hundred
dollars. With crys of "police!" and "stop
thief!" he followed the negro, who ran
down the levee toward the steamer James
Howard, which was lying at the foot of
Fourth street; but by searching the
steamer nnd wharfboat, no trace
of the thiet could be found. In
the meanwlulu the other negro who had
been left at the store alone also disappeared,
and Mr. Hsas, being unable to give a de
scription of cither of the rascals, the offi
cers had no cluo whatever, and, of course,
no arrests were made.
