I'OUK MOKE OF TilE ADAMS ExnEjs ROJl_ BEIiS HUSO AT NEW ALBANY^ [From the Cincinnati Enquirer, Dec. ir,. itelribulion seldom (ails (o overtake the transgressor. Crime may lor awhile defy the laws, but justice sooner or later, in some form or other, avenges herself. Such is the case with lour more of tbe gang, which for tbe year past, has been a terror to tbe citizens of Southern Indiana—four who participated in tbe robbery of an Adams Express oar on the Jeffersonville Kailroad on tin- 22;I o: May last. Of course, in common with all law-abiding citizens, we cannot bat deprecate the mode and manner in which punishment was inflicted upon these offenders. Judge Lyuch is a dan gerous jurist. He neither regards law nor fact, except what is patent on the face ol tilings— and mercy never visits his eourl. He sits'not to try, bat to condemn, and be acknow ledges ro power above and beyond him that can grant one moment's reprieve or commute a sentence. This was fully realized yesterday by Charles Anderson, and Simeon, Frank and William Reno, when taken from their cells in the New Albany jail, and banged in the corridor by a “vigilance committee” from Seymour, Ind. These victims ol a mob, tor we can call it nothing else, were the perpe trators of a long series of burglaries, robber ies, even murders, and other crimes, that have been committed in Southern Indiaua ilnrin" the past lew years. Duiing this time the law seemed utterly powerless to protect the law-observing Ironi tbe depredations ol the burglar and tbe prowliDg midnight assassin. It is to be regretted that id this, as in many other cases, tbe law was not permitted to take its course. In this land ol legal tribu nals we can well afford to delay the avenging blade of justice until every formality has been gone through with, and give to the vil est criminal tbe opportunity to present some thing in extenuation or the offence, or if the accused should be innocent, give him a chance to establish the fact. imp rooDery, as we nave already said, oc curred ou tlie night of Friday, Slay 22, at a place called Marshfield, on the line of tbe Jell'erson railroad. The train left Jeflerson ville at 9 P. M. It consisted of the engine, tender, baggage and express car. and two pas senger coaches. It arrived at Marshfield eu time. Th!s place seems to be a deserted vil lage, and the only reason tor slop ing at it is to obtain water, On the left-hand side of tbe track is tbe water taDk, and on the other side a lew yards in advance, sland two or three log i ouses and an old worn saw-mlli. The train stopped and the fireman got off on the lelt hand side to let down tbe water-spout.— Tbe engineer got down on tbe right baud side with a torch iu his band, and conimenced oil ing the engine. He oiled the right-band side and was passing around to tbe ielt when his torcli was kicked ont of his baud and lie was asked what he was doing. In the mean time, the conductor of the train, who w..s iu the last car, told the train boy to go out and see if any one was getting on. The boy soon returned and said that three or lour men were getting into the express car. This aiaimed the conductor, and lie ran forward, and was just in time to see the express car uncoupled liom tbe passenger coaches, the bell rope cut, and the engine move on. Tbe thieves, alter getting the train, or at least that portion ol it which they had under their control going, turned their attention to the express messenger, Thomas G. Harkins.— They beat him in a terrible manner, and left him lor dead. The -thieves broke open tbe sate and secured bonds and money to the amount of $9(5,000. They ran tlie train to within hall a mile of Seymour and then de serted it. The man pko ran the engine was evidently an engineer, as she was all right when touedi As soon as the passengers of the train learned the nature oi tbe outrage perpetrated, having no other resourse, they walked to the nearest telegraph station, a ' distance of six miles, and telegraphed to Sey mour lor a locomotive and car, to hasten them to the latter place. For weeks no clue to the perpetrators of the bold deed could b? obtained, hut finally a dispatch was received by the agent of the company, in this city, stating that some of the bonds had been ott ered lor sale in Syracuse, New York, and that the individual ottering them bad been arrest ed. This person gave his name as George Cameron, and stated to the officers who made the arrest that he purchased them horn Frank Keno and Charles Anderson. Steps were at once taken to arrest these men, and they were finally arrested at Sandwich, Can ada, and lodged in jail. Simeon Keno was shortly afterwards arrested and was identifi ed by Harkins, as were also the other two.— Bill Reno, another brother, was arrested in Indiana, ar.d lodged in the New Albany jail, where he remained until yesterday. L. C. Weir, Esq., agent of the company, went to Canada to attend to the ease, and, after mouths ol delay, succeeded iu gettiug a war raut of extradition issued by Chiet Justice Draper, at Toronto. This order was issued ou October 28, and od the following day Mr. Weir, who had been deputized to bring the prisoners to tbe United States, started in a tug from Detroit, bound tor Cleveland. When a lew miles below Detroit the lug was run in to by the propeller Phii Sheridan, and sunk. She prisoners were, after great exertions, fi nally saved and taken *o Cleveland, from whence they were brought to this city. They were kept here lor a lew days, and were then taken to New Albany, where Simeon and Bill were already in custody. TIIE WORK OF THE VIGILANCE COMMITTEE— THE FIRST HANGING. Elliott, Clifton and Jarrell were airested a day or two after the occurrence, and brought to this city for sale keeping. They were kept until the night of July 20, when they were put on the train bound lOr Urownstovvn, the county-seat of Jackson County, Indiana. On the arrival of the train, two or (hree miles west of Seymour, it was stopped by a large body of armed men, the guard in charge of the prisoners being overpowered. The subterfuge resorted to by the mob was the exhibition of a slauai o'f distress—a red light—upon the track, upon seeing which the I engineer whistled down brakes. No sooner had the train eoiuc to a stand-still, than the bulk of the so called vigilance committee, who were concealed in a thicket near by, boarded and took possession of the train, ovsrpowered the guards, and removed the prisoners to terra tirma. The poor wretches too lully compu-hended what was to be done, Five minutes were given them in which to prepare lor death, while the exeeutiouers with a grim earnestness placed the fatal noose about their necks. '1 hey at first beg ged lor mercy, hat Hading it in vain, they concluded to make a confession, and while standing with the noose around their uecks, the uniortunate mt n confessed to the whole affair, and also admitted their knowledge ol the celebrated Marshfield robbery,each blam ing the other two, and denying any personal connection with the same. For the purpose cl receiving this conlession, the time was ex tended a half tan hour, at the end of which the ropes were drawn, and these wretched desperadoes,co.ered with crime were launch ed into eternity. The crowd I hen dispersed, alter the writhing bodies had stiflcncd in the chilling embrace ol the King ol Terrors. The vigilance committee, alter performing their terrible work, issued the lollowing pro clamation: ATTENTION, THIEVES. “The attention of all thieves, robbers, as sassins and vagrants, together with their aid ers, abettors end sympathizers, is called to the doings of the Seymour Vigilance Com mittee Iasi night. We are determined to fol low this up until all oi the .classes above named, whether imported or to the “manner burn,’’ are driven forever from our midst. Threats have been made of retaliation in case we should resort to capital punishment. In answer, we say, “should one of our com mittee be lia.med, or a dollar's worth of prop erty of any honest man be destroyed, by per sons unknown, we will swing by the neck until they be dead, every thieving character we can lay our hands on, without inquiring whether we have the persons who committed that particular crime or not. This applies not only to Seymour, but along the line of the two roads, and wherever our organiza tion exists. Laic and order must prevail. By order of the Committee. Seymour, Ind., July 21, ISOS.” It was known that three of the robber* were still at large, and a vigorous pursu-i »'as at once commenced. After a search of several days, James Moore, Fr*«* Sparks and Bill Roseutery were arre*red, identified anu hung to the same tree that caused the death ot the others. A HORRIBLE SCR**—T,,E SECOND HANGING. Durinf’the early part ol November ffm. Reno ana Anderson arrived here in caie of jl, Weir, and were alter a sho t delay, taken to Sew Albany and put in Floyd County jail lor sale keeping. It was supposed that the vigiiauec committee had had enough of takiug the law into their own hanth. and that these men, in connection with Frank and Simeon Reno, would be granted a fair trial. Such however, we are sorry to say, was not tiie ease and New Albany Saturday morning was cho-en as the scene of the terrible occurrence. At half past three o'clock, Saturday morning, the vigilance committee from Seymour, to the number ol ievenly or seventy-five men, arriv ed in New Albany on the Jeffersonville road. They were all well dressed, anil wore ted flannel masks. Each man was armed with a heavy club, one or more revolvers, and a slung-shot. The New Albany Commeieial, Extra, of Satuida.v morning, has quite a lengthy account ot the atl'air, trom whieh we take tlielollowiug part cnlars:—Upon setting off the train they placed patrols along the street from the railroad to the Jail, and a strong guard was placed around the Jail. Be fore placing Hie guard around the jail, flee or six men seized Mr. Luther Whitten one of the et-Sheriff FullcrloveN guard,, Employed to keep wateli at night in the jr.u yarj t ej ( liim ham, and toot, and carried him into’ the Sheriff's ofiiee aud placed him iu a chair. Ti e committee then secured the other persons iu the SherilFs office, and immediately went to the room in which Sheriff Fullerlove and hi. with were sleeping. Sheriff F. had been awakened by the noise,and stepped to the door justas the committee were about to enttm- it. The committee demanded of the Sheriff the ke>s to the jaii, and told him if tie made any noise they would shoot him, at Hie same Shen&°.,n,tJn? tllpir Kvulvt's ftt idni. The them ffH'fcm to shoot—he would uot give aram Shen^k^^r;,":1 aho ra'sp,the and ran downsta"n°PenP,I,n dcfr liouse and climbed out ot Ua^itudowl ° As lie did this aTiezeu pistols were , ohnod A him, and he told the crowd ol vigilant* not to fire at him as lie was the Sheriff. Gaining tiie yard, he attempted to reach the gate lead ing into the street, hut was hu d upon and severely wounded in the arm ju t lic'ow the elbow, the bullet burying itsell in the bone. Several men then seized him, one of them striking him iu the forehead with the butt of a pisto1, knocking him down. Some one of the moh then told the men not to hurt the Sheriff but to carry him into the house, which was done. On reaching the house Mrs. F, seeing blood upon her husbands clothing, commenced crying, but she was told by the moh to stop and keep perfectly quiet or she would be killed. The Sheriil had' no clothing on except his drawtrs anil shirt. Tl e mob tin u searched the house until they lound the jail keys. They theu shut up the Sheriff and guaids, and proceeded to unlock the doors of the jail. When they reache I the inside door to the cell-room, they encountered Mr. Mat thews, the patrol in the ceil room, lie drew his revolver aud threatened to shoot any man that would attempt to unlock the door. The mob showed him a rope, aud told him If ho tired even one shot they would break the door down and hang him. He then surren dered to them under a promise that his life would he spared. The mob, however, were unaDie 10 unlock the tl >or and compelled Mr. M. lo unlock it tor •them, 'they then seized and tied him, and placed him In the room with the other captured guards. They had the keys of the cells, and before remov ing Matthews Item the ceil-room they had ioiced him lo show them the cells in which Frank Keno, Chailes Anderson,Simeon Reno aud William Keno were confined. They had now lull possession of ihe jail and knew wliote to find their intended victims, and the woikof death was commenced aud speedi ly accomplished, leaving a terrible and sick ening memento ol its completeness iu the dangling, liteless bodies of its victims. Tbo first man bnng was Simeon Reno. The cell house i3 divided into two tiers, upder and lower, aud around the upper tier of cells is an iron corridor, supp uted by two lion pil lars. From tbo southwest corner of this cor ridor Simeon Keno was bun*. His arms and feet were ipinioned, and he was in bis bare feet. He had received a blow upon the head, and a thin streak of blooa stained his lace. He had on no clothing except, his shirt and pants. The next victim was Charles Ander son. He was hung from the northwest cor ner of the corridor,aud his features gate evi dence ol a terrible struggle with his relent less executioners. On the south end of the corridor Frank Reno was hung. Upon his head, just above the right ear, wa3 a deep wound, appare„tly made with a slung shot, and the light side of his lace wa3 besmear ed with blood. The lace and neck were te markably white. Immediately in trout of Frank, and touching him, William Reno was hung. His face was much distorted, aud the flesh was greatly swollen, buiying the rope from sight. The mob, having completed its work, lelt the jail, li cking the door leading into the cell-room utter them, and carrying off the key. In the best order the vig'lanca committee then lelt the premises fir the tail road, where a train was in waiting lor them, and left the city, the work tor which they went being accomplished. The mob took with them ropes with which to do their work. They were ot manilla rope, live-eighths of aa inch iu size,and about teu leet in length. Each rope had a regular hat gman's knot upon it. The moh took five ropes in all, one of which they said they intended to use to hang the .guard, li he resisted. The mob were in the jail, Sheriff F. state;, not to exceed five min utes. He thinks not over thice minutes were occupied in the terrible work ol sending tiie tour victims of their fury into eternity. Thus have ten human beings been compelled to yield up their lives in violation ot all law and order. The only one ol the Keno brothers lelt is John, and he is now serving out a sen tence of twenty-five years iu the Missouri Penitentiary, for safe-blowing.

It was alleged that the plaintiff dis posed of his farm, and left Columbia ouly be cause he expected to marry the deleudant. The jury found a verdict for plaintiff—dam ages two hundred pounds. —Among queer wills may be named that of Sir Joseph Jekyll, who lelt his fortune to pay the English national debt. When Lord Mans , field heard ol this he said: “Sir Joseph was a very good man and a good lawyer, but his be quest was a very foolish one; he might as well have attempted to stop the middle arch ot Blackfriar’s bridge with his lull-bottomed wig.” Lord Pembroke gave “nothing to Lord Say, which legacy I give Lim because I know he will bestow it on the poor;” and then, after giving equally peculiar legacies, he finished with: “Item—I give up the ghost.” —Travelling in Norway is cheap. A trav eller writes: “At some of the stations we were charged for two persons four marks (eighty eight cents gold) lor supper, beds and break fast. A horse and carriage hired from station to station cost about thirty-eight cents gold a Norwegian mile, wbiili is seven English miles. On the steamers a man and his wile travel at a fare and a half.” — Mr. Howard Paul, who is now in Paris, has offered M. Offenbach 115,0(0 francs (85000) to write the music to a sequel to the “Grand Duchess,” under the litlc of “The Grand Duchess more Married than Settled,” and M. Offenbach lias the proposal under considera tion.
