From lW Cincinnati Commercial, July 22.
Our readers have already been made aware of
the id an j murders, house burnings, horse
stealings counterfeiting operations, and daring
express robberies that have taken place near
IBevmour, Indiana, by the Renos, their compan
lot s and pupils. Every effort made thus fur, by
detectives from other po'nts, to weed out these
murdering devils has failed, in a measure, at
least. Liie and property have continued at their
rnrrcy. Within two years they have robbed the
Adams Express Company alone of $125,000. A
robbery of th's kind occurred also lately on the
Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton IUilroad,
where the American Express Company wa
robbed ot a large amount. All these robberies
have emanated from the same source. A family
named Keno, living at Rocktord, two miles from
fee m our, have been the leaders or instigators
of the w hole of these daring outrages. They are
also the parties who led ttio raid in Iowa last
spring, when so many country sales were
x bbed.
On the 22d of May last the Adams Express
Company's car was roobed, about eighteen
miles from Seymour, on the line of the Jeller
eonville. Madison, and Indianapolis RallroaJ.
This robbery was done by trie Renos and their
friends, some of whom are now in Canada to
void capture, and others are under arrest for
this outrage. On the 10th instant the Adams
Exprr i8 was acain attempted to be robbed, on
the OBio and Mississippi Railroad, about thir
teen miles west of Seymour. The armed guards
of the Company, however, repuhted the robbers,
captured cue, and wounded some of the others,
two ot whom have since been captured, and for
the remainder a large reward has been offered.
James Voluey Ellet was one at this gang, and
was captured on the night of the attempted
Charles Roseberry, a resident o Seymour,
and a pupil of the Renos, was afterward
arrested by the citizens of Seymour, who
turned out en masse. Frail Clifton was also
arrested. They all owned up to their connec
tion wi h the affair, and also the attempt to Kill
the guards.
For Bale keeping these three men were
Drought up to this city, and imprisoned tempo
rarily in tbe various stations, as had been neve
ral other parlies arrested on suspicion of con
nection with the robbery in May last, when
$06,000 rewarded the robbers. They were held
here until night belore lust, when they left in
charge of an officer of the Adams Express Com
pany, and heavily ironed, for Ilrownstown,
twelve miles west of Beymoar. Every possible
precaution had bean taken to keep ttieit dep iqw
lire a secret. It was feared that it misfit beconUe
knwn to some of the racalb' companions, and
that a rescue might be the result. No interference
was apprehended from othera. The officers had
no idea that stern and determined men, who
bad become aroused to desperation by outrage,
bad their eyes upon these men, and'that they
were doomed. It must have been that faithful
agents ot tbe Vigilance Commit'.ee had watched
the stations of the city closely, and telegraphed
immediately to Seymour the signal ior
prompt action; for, when the passenger train
was swiftly rolling towards Brownstown, two
miles west of Seymour, a little after midnight
JeeUrday morning, tbe engineer saw, tar ahead,
n the darkness of a dense wood, a brightly
gleaming eye ot fire that warned him to stop for
something, be knew not wbat. Hardly had the
train ceased to move, when it was surrounded
on all tides by the dark forms ot a hundred or
more armed men, who did not say much, but
acted very promptly. They held muskets and
revolvers in their hands, and quietly stood
guard hile tbeir leaders, with a btrong squad,
went through the train, laid strong bauds upon
the trembling desperadoes, and without meeting
with any useless resistance, marched them out
into the wood. The engineer had objected to
their way ot doing things, and threatened to
inove on. But he quietly submitted to the de
tention, when he was- Informed that it he did
this he would sacrifice mauy lives, as the track
was blockaded.
What was done by the self-constituted execu
tioners out in tbe woods, Wd cannot state in
detail. How the doomed men conducted them
selves, what they said, and how they pleaded for
ie as the ropes were being fastened around
their necks and thrown over the limbs of one of
the strong old forest trees, we cannot say. There
were no reporters there to report that triple
death to take down coolly and accurately tbe
last trembling utterances of the dying wretches.
The story is ki own only to those who had a
band in the affair.
In the morning these three lifeless bodies were
seen hanging on the tree.
In &evmour. and for many miles around.
nothing was thought of or talked of yesterday
but the work of tbe Vigilance Committee; and
tbe following proclamation, quite generally
distributed, served to keep the matter fresh.
"Aitkmhon, 'J hikvks I The attention of all

From the Cincinnati Enquirer, July 22.
The poor wretches ton fully comprehended
what was to be done. Five minutes wers given

expcutioncrp, with firtni earnestness, placed the
fatal noose about their uerus. They at firit
begged for mercy, but, finding It in vain, they

Btanclitig with the noose around their neck, the
unfortunate, men confessed to the whole affair,
and also admitted their knowledge of the cele
brated MarshBeld robberv, committed some
mouths aeo on the Louisville und Indianapolis
Itailroa'l, each blaming tbe other two, and
denying any personal connection with tbe same.
For the purpose of receiving this rontession,
the time wai extended to halt an hour, at tbe

From the Aeu Haven Journal and Courier, 22(1,
Probably the boldest and most infamous out
rage ever eouiniiUed upon the records of the
Plate of Connecticut was committed some lime
between (Saturday and Tuesday morning. It is
known that the Klectlon law. so called.
vus the subject of very earnest and bitter
paitifan discussion last week, and was
linmlv nassed at about 2 o'clock on Saturday
morning, when the Legislature adjourned
until Monday even ner. and tbe bill as paised
was deposited in the oiliee of the (Secretary of
Ptate. Un tbe reassembling oi mo iegiiaiuie
the Engrossing Committee took up tue oin, anu
were astonished to find tbat it bad been del I bo
ra'ely and Bystem-iMr I'v altered in several
Impoituut jui'ti -ii r-, 10 as to materially
rhuuge it m Hie. ..1 .1 m... It 'onfonu to tu
amendments that the Democrats had attemp'.ed
in vain to engraft upon It. Somebody (who
it was has not yet been finally ascertained)
gained access to the Secretary's office, and,
evidently knowing where the bill was deposited,
took It and proceeded to make the altera
tions. Acids were used to erase certain words,
and in their places others were written so that
the sense of entire sections was changed. Mo
Jess than eight of such alterations were detected,
and there may be others. For instance, the
provisions that the Board for the admission of
electors should only tit in the day time, were
all changed so that the Board could sit in tbe
evening. This was a point that was vainly
fought for by the Democrats in both houses, and
was rejected bv a party vote. Another series of
changes was the alteration of positive obliga
tions on the selectmen to simple permissions.
The whole purpose was to render the law ineffec
tive, and it was evidently done by Democrats,
and by men of more than usual ingenuity and
Tht Cb.ages of tl MoaUh July Modii.
The July number of 1m. Beau Monde dis
courses of tbe prevailing fashions as follows:
"If a lady were asked to express in a couplu
of words what changes have taken place in the
fashions during the past moutb, she should
reply, even if she did not, 'shorter and skim
pier.' Crinoline had such a rage, and became
so unbounded, that it was only natural to
expect a very violent reaction. But nobody
could have anticipated such a state of things as
now exists. A little more, and a long step wilt
not be a possibility. Again, ladies blessed with
a profusion of hair, having dre-sed it in the
prevailing style, and bavicR adopted the ex
treme of fashion, present a very unpleaslug
appearance. Some judgment should be used in
these matters.
"For our parls, we believe the want of pro
portion now evident in all the fashions will bo
compensated by the absolute introduction of the
farthingale Itself, and tha abandonment of the
many shapes of imitation of that adjunct which
the last two months have been iudustrlously
hutching, and which have this month taken
something like decision of shape.
"Assuredly, the hips must be draped in some
manner. It is quite impossible that the totally
narrow skirt, utterly unrelieved, can prevail.
Of the eight figures with which we present our
readers this month, scarcely one is plain at tbe
"The hair Is still worn at the summit of the
head in Paris, but this style has not been
adopted In England by the very best people.
"The snort-dress ball has had the eifcct ot
reducing the length of the trains, wbile, at the
same time, they are somewhat filled out behind.
"Tbe proper length of an out door dress Is
certainly not more than three inches from the
ground, while tbe?e skirts are now relieved
somewhat from their meanness of appearance
eihe r by flat frills sometimes two, one above
the other rucbinps, or flat flutlngs.
"Ot tbe extraordinary and chaotic shapes of
what may be called over-skirts we can scarcely
venture to say anything. Tney sometimes take
the shape of rounded aprons in front, squaring
off into a jacket line behind, the whole com
pleted with lng wide knotted ends. Again, a
sort of George III period, half-square, in the
material of the dress, is combined with a half
loose bodice, which is completed with falling
ends bebind. In other cases, a sort of curtain
diapered skirt in gauze, black or white, is draped
over the under-skirt, swept about the dress,
raised bebind at the waist, and completed by
falling ends. In other cases, from a culra-se
gardle flows a loose drapery of the material of
tbe dress, which, being looped underneath to
the waist again after falling a few inches, gives
the idea of an antique Grecian bodice, an eiTect
enhanced by the sweeping and crossed drapery
flowing over the skirt.
"In other cases, to the skirt of the dress is
given the exact semblance of a petticoat, be
cause the material is not used at all in the
upper-skirt, whieh is looped up all the way
round, while over the back falls the long-bowed
ends of a Marie Antoinette fichu, worn so low
over the bodice as to give at Its upper line the
outline of evening dress. In these cases tbe
whole of the upper skirt, the fichu, the bow is
made ot tbe same DomDadour si k. always a
diaper of bouquets upon a dark ground, fre
quentlv black. The petticoat being generally
made of light colored material, the contrast is
mest marked and deliberate.
"Sometimes the rounded apron stvlo Is so
managed that it reminds one of the leather
apron ot a sapper and miner,
"Sleeves for out-door dress remain quite plain
In cut. They are generally trimmed with epau
lettes and wristbands In character with the flat
trimmings bf the skirt.
"for evetnug dress, sometimes tne liair-
square, of the material of the dress, as it passes
over tbe shoulder, forms the sleeve. In other
cases, when the bodice is cut square in front.
the sleeve is flat and almost angular, wbile, in
other cases, actually something like a melon
sleeve is to be seen.
"Jet Is not to be seen, and gold, however, is
gradually creeping into popularity."

Frederick Douglass mourns over the fall of
Mr. Chase in the Anti-S avory Standard. He
The fall of Mr. Chase is more scandalous and
shocking than that of any other ot which
American history affords ut example. His
descent is from a Point hieher he has fallen

ago tbat he was seeking to win to himself the
votes of the colored men of the South on the

anu now n is ior a puity wuuse cuiei ctauu 10
popular retard is based npon its hostility O the
netro and Its purpoce to place him i a condi
tion ouly less wretched than the slavery from
which the war for the Union has rescued him.
It is not many weeks since that good man,
Gerritt Smith, was vigorously pressing the nitne
ot filr. Cbase lor the Presidency, lie wasevi.
dently surprised, if not grieved, that I was not
equally earnest in the same work. He could
not understand why I should favor the nomina
tion and election ol General Grunt in preiereuce
to Chief Justice Chdso. Mr. Smith will have no
difficulty in undemanding my preference now.
The fact is 1 have for mauy years been trou
bled with doubts of this man's anti-ditvery
trustworthiness. Before Mr. Chase ha 1 betrayed
that 1 eroic woman, Margaret Garner, into tbe
hands ot Kentucky slave hunters; batore lie
deserted Mr. Lincoln, and sought to supplaut
him in 18(14; before he accepted the Cbiet Jus
ticeship as the price of his support of the sec ud
election of Mr. Lincoln; belore he nianile.ted
his inordinate detire for the Presidency by
leaving the Treasury (where his fervices were
most needed by the country), in order to put
himself in training for the Presidential nomina
tion; before he framed excuses for Im failure
to try Jefferson Davis; before ho brought the
whole influence of his posttiou aui learning to
shield Andrew Johnson tiom deserved impeach
ment, and before his present identification of
himself with all the abomluations of the Demo
eratic platform, I had uncomfortable impres
sions of tbemun which 1 could not (though I
olttn desired to) divest myself of.
A portrait of tte character of Mr. Chase, given
me by lion. Samuel Lwis, of Cinelnna'i, when
that wood man aud faithful Abolitionist was on
his dying bed, has (despite of all efforts to shake
it off and forget it), followed me for a dozen
yea's and more, and has become more and more
vivid as time and eveuts have developed the
true status of the man. The judgment of Mr.
Lewis was that Mr. Cbaxe was not to be trusted
in any emergency that he win coldly si-ldnh
and lnteimely Hinbitioua, and that la lurtheraucc
of his ambition he would sacrifice the abolition
cause or any other.
He has confirmed the. bad opinion of htm in
every particular. Greedy for the Presidency,
he -has not hesitated to renounce all ties of
ancient friendship to repudiate all obligations
of gratitude, te disregard the sentiment of
reserve which befits bis present hieh office, to
intrigue and scramble for a nomination at tbe
hands of a party conspliuous for the bitterest
hostility to the professed principles of his whole
life, and whose triumph in tbe coming election
would be toe direst calamity. Tbe signal defeat,
rebuke, and humiliation of the insatiate ambition
of f'liiei Justice Chase, in some incisure, atones
for the Democratic business which has accom
plished his seduction.
MoTtmiiti of Cabral Progress of tbe
Civil War The liuiii failure.
We have received additional advices from
Puerto Plata te July 6.
The threatened invasion of 6t. Domingo by
ex-Presldcnt Cabral and the exiled generals ot
his party, Lupernn, Polanco and others, has
taken place. Cabral, after passing turoutrb
llajli under shelter 01 tbe arms of the Cacos,
has ciossed the lroutters and is at Banica with
a considerable lorce ot men. General Kannrez
Baez, and Colonel Le Mar, eacb at the head ol a
larfce body ol troops, bave been sent aaa'nn
him ; and In Santiasro, which has been threat
ened by Polanco, the authorities are rapidly
oreanizing a military force to resist him.
Tbe malcontent generals have published a
manifesto addressed to the people of St.
Domingo, setting forth that the revolutionists
arc not animated by a spirit of vengeance, but
that it is absolutely necessary to tbe peace aud
prosperity of the country that Baez should be
removed-lrom the Presidency. Should he abdi
cate power, they say, dissensions may speedily
be healed; but if he resists their demands a
general civil war is inevitable.
In the city of St. Domingo great disquiet pre
vails in consequence of tbe imminency of an
other desperate struggle. The prisons, it is said,
are full, and n,r every political prisoner sent out
of the country, or rather permitted to leave it,
two fresh arirsts are made. One of the priso
ners has been tried by a council of war, and
sentenced to death; but an appeal has been
made to tbe Supreme Court, to wbieh his case
will be taken, and it is expected tbat the sen
tence will be reversed bv the Court.
Tbe appointment of Damian Biez as Governor
of tbe capital has caused much dissatisfaction,

We have advices from Port au Prince to the
10th inst. The Cacos, in great strength, were
within a tbort distance ot the city not more
than three miles aud it was believed that they
would make a grand attack about the 17th of
the month. They had rejected all overtures on
the part of Salnave lor a peaceable settlement of
diuerences. The deputation sent oy 11 tu to tne
rebel camp, consisting of three generals and
four Senators, met with a very distteartentng
reception, and immediately after their depar
ture Gen. Faubert addressed his soldiers In an
order ot the day, informing tnem
that the propositions submitted by Sal
nave had been spurned, aud that
they must prepare themselves lor a battle, to the
cry of ' Down with Salnave the tyrant!" At
the same time be issued a proclamation to the
inhabitants of Port au-Prince, calltne upon them
to rise when he approached the city with his
army, and aid him in overthrowing. Salnave.
He also Invited the foreign residents at Port-au-Prince
to unite wiih the native citizens for tbe
same end. Salnave on his pal t, was fully pre
pared tor tbe intended attack. Should the Cacos
carry out their intentions the atl'tir wa9 likely
to be a bloody one. A serious misunderstand
ing bad arisen between President Salnave and
the British Consul at Port-au-Prince. Tbe
number of disaffected Ilajtiens seeking refuse
at the foreign Consulates since tha city was
placed under martial law had been so large
that the Presideut thought it necessary to pub
lish an order iorbiddiug an asylum being
aflorded them at these places?. This order the
Butish Consul had disregarded, and the people
whom the American Consul declined to receive
were given shelter at the British Consulate
bnlnave had resented this as au unwarrant
able course, calculated to increase the difficul
ties he had to contend with In dealing with tbe
enemies or bis Government. The liritisu i;on
sul remained firm in his purpose, and to aagra
vatc tbe misunderstandings he had niitde. it
was said, a formal demand of Salnave for com
pensation for certain damages alleged to have
been iono to a British war vessel through Sttt
nave's conduct. Tbe President was on tne best
of terms with the Ameiican Minister, Mr. Hoi
lister, who was u-ing his influence and his best
eflorts to have peace restored to the country. It
was rumored at Port-au-Prince that the geueral
in command at Cape Hay ti bad deserted to the
Cacos. At Jnemel, however, and in other places
where the rebels had been strong, the cause of
Salnave was gaining ground, and the iu-mrecnt
movement losing in proportion. A Senator
named liarueau had been arrested at Aux Ca.yes
lor alleged conspiracy wnb the rebels. H was
taken lo Carref'our and lodged m prisou there.
The Haytien war steamer Galatea was expected
shortly from New York, whither ?lie ba I been

Shanghai?, June 6, via London July 23. It la
reported In this city to-day that Captain FebP
ger, ol the United States Navy, ascertained
during his recent cruise in the. Shenandoah on
the coast of Corea that the crew of the American
barque General Sherman had been beheaded by
the natives at the place where they landed.
Americans express the opinion that Captain
Febiger discharged his duty with zealous caret
but that his search was not so efficient as might
have been on account of tho draught of water
of the Shenandoah being much too great to
permit him to explore the Co reau coast and
rivers, the best existent charts of which are
almost useless for present purposes.
Should the assertion of the positive execution
of all or any of the crew of the Sberman prove
true, It will likely lead to active reprisals on the
part of the authorities in Washington through
the officers in command of the Asiatic squadron,
as the Rev. Mr. Thomas, who had a knowledae
of tbe Corean language, and a few other citizen
of note were on the vessel at the time of tho
disaster as passengers from Chin proper.
The Coreans assert that they merely repelled
some years since a forcible yisit of a foreign
veseel flag unknown by force, and that her
crew were killed by an explosion and Are during
the fight. -
