Yesterday an old man and his family ar
rived in this city by tho steamer Illinois,
intending tocontlnue their journey north
ward by tho 2:45 train on tho Illinois Cen
tral. The family git on to tho cars
nnd comfortably settled, nnd just as the
train started, n young man neatly dressed
In dark clothes, came up to the old gentle
man, apparently in a great hurry, and said
that he held in his hand n check for soven
hundred dollars, but as the train was under
way nnd ho could not get to tho bank
to havo it casliod, he would like to soil it
and would givo n very liberal discount on
it. In fact, as $176 was just tho amount re
quired at this particular time ho would give
it to him for that amount. Tho old man
thought here was n chanco for speculation,
and he took tho bait paid in good clean
greenbacks the $475 and got tho bogu
check. A soon as tho thief got hold of the
money ho said ho would now go and pay
the conductor his posago money, nnd loft
the cur. A gentleman who witnessed the
transaction asked tho old man if he
was sure tho "check " was all right.
For the first tlmo tho thought entered
tho old mau's mind that ho hud been
robbed. The conductor was sought, who
stopped tho train. The old man nnd his
family got off, but his tliiefship was no
where to bo found. A dispatch was sent
to Joncsboro to nscortain whore the
sharper had got off tho train. In th'j
evening officer Arnold received nn
answer from the conductor, stating that n
man nnswering his description had leaped
from tho train at Twelfth street in this
