From the Philad?li?hU Gasattc, ttUi iiuUut.
Robberies,?About 6 o'clock on Sunday
evening, the boot store of Mr. Young, on Ninth
Mreet, above tilbert, u u? euterrd by a daring
thief, and the bulk window stripped of it* contents,
consisting of handsome aud fashionable boots.
1 he thiel also took from a show case a fancy tin
box, which contained a lease, and other valuable
papers. The front door of the house wit shut, but
not locked, aud the family, who were sitting in
the back room, heard a heavy footstep. Mr Young
went into the store, and discovered that he had
been robbed. He thought he saw a man going
out of the front doorway, and immediately gave
chase, but the darkness prevented him from seeing
which way the thief had gone.
He returned to the house, and while searching
around the store to ascertain what had been taken,
the door bell rang violently. He hurried to answer
the call, and stumbled over the tin box, which was
on the step. It was forced open, but the thief find
ing nothing in it besides papers valuable only
to the owner, must have brought it back, and
placed it there, and (hen took a hasty retreat.
One pair of the boot* stolen, made in the best
manner, and exhibited in the Franklin Institute,
are valued highly.
'he entrance into the store was effected
through a door leading from the private eutry of
the house, and the thief is believed to have been
some one well acquainted with the arrangement
of the premises. A few nights ago, either the
same rogue, or some other daring fellow, smashed
a pane ol glass in the show window of Mr. Young,
but was compelled to flee without taking any
thing.
On Sunday afternoon, about four o'clock, a bold
fellow eutered a private boarding-house, a few
doors north ol Mr. Young's place of business, as
cended the stairs, aud walked into a room. A lady
boarder heard liiin walking about, and going down
stairs, told the persou who occupied the apart
ment that a man must be in her room. She sup
posed not, but went up to see.
On openipg the door the fellow was (iscovered.
He exhibited remarkable coolness under the cir
cumstances, and said lie wished to see a lady
boarder named Williams. On being told that no
person ol that name lived there, he excused him
self, and took his departure. A lady who suspected
him caught him by the arm and detaiued him, but
he gave her such assurances that all was right,
she was thrown off her guard, and allowed him to
depart without making any alarm. On making an
examination, a number of articles of ladies' wear
ing apparel were found gathered and tied up in a
merino shawl, ready to be carried away.
A bottle of jelly and a quantity of cakes intend
ed for supper were taken from a closet in the
diiiing-room, from which it may be inferred that
the darifig thief had been there first. The only
articles taken from up stairs were a hair brush
and a book. A clothes press in an entry had been
rummaged.
About half-past four o'clock, as the keeper of
the boarding-house was standing in company with
a lady on the iront door step, a young man was
observed peeping out of an alley close by, and
presently he made a hasty retreat, and ran down
Filbert street. He was the same person who had
paid the boarding-house a visit.
At an earlier hour in the day, the residence of a
wealthy family in the same neighborhood was en
tered by a young man, who succeeded in making
quite a haul. The family were at ehurch, aud the
only one about the house was a colored servant
girl, who was in the kitchen. The thief had
scaled the fence, and the noise attracting the at
tention of the domestic, she went into the yard
and met him.
On being accosted, he replied that he wished to
see his brother, who told him to get over the fence
and come into the kitchen. He found that he had
made a mistake in the house, and asked the way
to get out^ The girl, not even suspecting him to
be a thief, showed him the gate and then returned
to the kitchen. The daring fellow, instead of go
ing out, went into the house and stole a solid
silver tea-pot, several silk and velvet dresses and
mantillas, couts, &o., with which he escaped.
From all accounts, he must have been the same
thief who afterwards paid a visit to the boarding
house, and perhaps the very one who robbed the
Loot store.
This is the season of the year when depreda
tions, like the above, generally commence. House
keepers cannot be too guarded, and the police
should be particularly vigilant.
Obstructions of the Telegraph.?Several
weeks since the telegraphic operators were not
able to communicate with Mobile, although the
contractors engaged to keep the line in order re
ported the wires up throughout the whole course.
This led to an examination, when it was found
that below Peach Tree, m Wilcox county, the
wires had been cut, and a piece of leather sub
stituted, which sustained the wires, but effectually
destroyed the communication?for several days
pnst the same difficulty has occurred, no communi
cation could be made with Mobile, though the
wires were reported up, and in order. An ope
rator commenced testing the wire with a magnet,
und about five miles below this city, found that
he could "get ' Mobile, but not Montgomery?
further testing back, he discovered the point where
the wire had been insulated, and where communi
cation could be made within a few yards?south
with Mobile, and north with Montgomery. On
taking down the wire, an ingenious apparatus was
discovered, which sustained the wire, and com
pletely insulated it, without increasing its bulk,
( or changing its appearance, so as to be observed
from the ground. This was effected by removing
a section of the wire, (about six inches,) and sub
stituting a silk cord, sufficient to sustain the ends,
and covered with a non-conducting preparation
which resembled the wire in appearance.
The deception wns complete, and could only be
be detected by the magnet. Whether this wns
done by persons speculating in foreign cotton ac
counts, or by agents of conflicting lines, has not
yet been ascertained. The skill and care however
with which it is effected, indicates an important
purpose of some nature.
We believe these outrages are, by the present
laws of the State, classed merely as trespasses.
Th?? ahmild be made felonious, with heavv oen
allies.?Montgomery (Ala.) Journal, SSov. ^0.
Cotton Factories.?The cotton factories in
Alleghany have all recommenced operations, and
are now in full headway, under the eleven hour
system. The proprietors of Anchor, Penn. Eagle,
tind Banner Works, (nil that are now in operation)
reduced the hours of labor to the same time that
was agreed upon between the proprietors and op
erators at the recent strike in Lancaster, Pa., and
Lowell, Mass. The number of hands that are
employed in these mills is more than one thou
sand, and the whole number of persons depending
upon them for a subsistence, is about five thou
sand. There are also over three thousand dollars
a week distributed among them, which makes a
total ot some hundred and fifty thousand dollars
during the year.
The Peun Mill has commenced operations with
two new and splendid engines of two hundred
horse power, which have been recently put up in
their engine-room. Their former engines, which
were only half this power, were found to be too
small to run all their machinery, and they had
these mammoth ones built to supply their place.
They are good engines, and work admirably, and
have great power.
The proprietors of the Eagle Cotton "Works are
negotiating for the erection of an additional large
four-story building on their premises, with a front
ol'217feeton Sandusky street.?Pittsburg Amer.
Broke Jail*?Johnson Jones, who was con
fined in the Kanawha jail under sentence to the
penitentiary for horse stealing, broke out a few
nights ago, and decamped. A man named Rob
erts, confined in the same apartment, intended
to have escaped through the same hole, and
threw his boots, coat, and pocket-book;
but when he tried to throw his mortal body out,
he found, to his sorrow, it was too big, and there
lie stuck fast, unable to move either way. Jones
then picked up Roberts's property and fled, while
R., becoming weary of his unpleasant position,
jives the alarm, but Jones was non rut.
The Charleston Republican says of Jones:
He is a young man of education?has proved
lilt he has considerable talent for writing. His
trospectus for a paper to be called the "Soeldolo
r<f,' written last summer, while in jail, was by
he Messrs. Harper & Brothers, of New York,
ieemed worthy of a place in their magazine.
par Last Saturday a man presented himself to
ae officers of the Jeffrrsonville (Ind.) penitentiary,
nd demanded the privilege (?) of being put to
'ork, saying that he owed the State five years' la
Dr, and he was determined to pay it. Ppon being
oestioned as to his right of admission, he stated
iat he had been convicted at a recent term of the
rcuit court held at Lawrenceburgh, of man
lughter, and had broken jail. Although a reward
as offered for his arrest, he had baffled pursuit
> to that time. His singular request was com
ied with.

ening a fluid lamp exploded at a house on Cal
vhill street, Philadelphia, between 20th and 21st

I little damage, however, was done.
The Central Route? Additional Testimony.
We copy from the Missouri Democrat of the
2&tb, the following letter which, besides its gen
eral bearing on the great question of the most
eligible route for the railroad, is interesting to
those who may design emigrating to the regions
west of the mountaius:
Dox Fek.na.ndkz dkTaos, Nkw Mexico,
OcuAxr 22, 1853.
Editors Missouri Dtntocmt:
Having passed several years in the mountains
and iu this country, and having some kuowledge
of the same, I propose giving through your valua
ble columns to the emigrants some information as
regards the central route to California. During
the last year, I have taken a drove of sheep lrom
this place to California, over the route Col. Fre
mont intended to have gone in the winter of 46,
'?19, at the time of his disaster. 1 made the trip
through to California in ninety days, arriving there
with my sheep in good order, having passed
through some of the finest country I ever ?uwj
had good camps and plenty of wood, water and
grass every night during the whole trip. This j
route is at least four hundred and fifty miles
nearer than the route by Fort Laramie and South
Pass.
1 recommend to emigrants, by all means, to take
this route in preference to any other. Start from
Kansas or any other town on the western Irontier
of Missouri, come up the north side ot the Ar
kansas river to the mouth of the Huerlano river,
about forty-five miles alx>ve Bents' fort, up the
Huerfano river to Roubidoux pass, or the pass
El Sangre de Christo, either of them practicable
for wagons, the asceut and descent being narrow
valleys nlade by small mountain streams, and so
gradual as to offer no obstructions to wagons.
Both these passes lead into the Valley of San
Louis, one of the finest valleya in the world; fol
low up the valley to the Coochatope pass, in the
Grand river mountain; down the Coochatope
river, to the valleys of Grand and Green "ver,
until you strike the Great Spanish trail: then fol
low tne trail to the Liule Salt Lake-and to the bt.
Clara springs; at both of these places there are
flourishing towns built by the Mormons, where
emigrants can procur? such things as they want
at fair prices. I was ottered flour at $2 oO per one
hundred pounds, and groceries at fair prices.
From St. Clara springs to San Francisco, by
Walker's Pass, there is a good wagon road and
settlements all the way. Captain Gunnison with
his party left the pass El Sangre de Christo about
the 16th August, and made the journey through to
Green river in twenty-four days, with twenty
wagons. A few days behind Captain Gunnison
was a party ol' emigrants, who had made up their
minds to pass the winter at Salt Lake, in conse
quence ot being so late in the season; after being
informed of this route they determined to try the
road. The party was conducted by Capt. McCleli
han, of Virginia. With the party was Col. Ross
and bis brother, from Iowa, with their families,
with several other gentlemen. They had two
thousand sheep, and from three to four hundred
head of cattle. Mr. Leroux, the guide ol Captain
Gunnison, met the emigrants on his return to this
place, on Grand river, and reports that they were
very much pleased with the route, their stock
being in excellent condition. Capt. McClelihan, j
who has been several times to California with
stock by the South Pass route, says there is no
comparison between the routes; that he would
sooner pass five times from the Arkansas to Grand
river, than pass through the black hills on the La
ramie rouie once.
There is now being commenced a settlement on
the Arkansas river, at the mouth of the Huerfano,
at which place emigrants can also procure sucb
necessaries as they may be in want of; also as to
the information as to-the route, or guides il they
wish. There is also a good ferry at the mouth of
the Huerfano, and femes will also be established
during the coming summer on Grand and Greeu
rivers. There is also another great advantage
that this route has over a more northern one, as
emigrants can leave Missouri as late as the 1st
August, and be in no danger of being stopped by
snow. After reaching the Great Spanish trail, in
the valley of Green river, from thence to California
there is never any snow, and the months of Octo
ber and November are more pleasant to travelers,
and better for stock, than the summer months. 1
enclose with this letter, a list of some of the
jitreainft and distance? from the moulh of thi Hu
erfano to the Santa Clara springs. After pa&?ing
the mountains into the valley of San Louis, to t he
Santa Clara springs, there is an innumerable
quantity of small mountain streams that have no
names. I have only mentioned such as I know
the names of.

Horrible Suicide.?We copy the following ac
count of a dreadful suicide, from the Cassville
(Geo.) Standard, of the 24th ult.:
Early on the morning of the 19th ultimo, the
sleepers of Mr. Burris's hotel, of this place were
aroused by the report of a gun. Some young men,
sleeping immediately over the room of the deceas
ed, when the report was a second time heard, it
being yet dark, went down nnd succeeded in rais
ing a window, rushed to the room in question,
where they found deceased about breathing his
last. His name is said to he Jeremiah King, per
haps at one time of Charleston, which inference
is drawn, we believe, from his having a draft in
his possession on one of the Charleston banks.
Mr. King came to this place eight or ten days
previous to his death, ana was observed to be of
very singular manners; so much so, he was sup
posed at least partially deranged. More than one
circumstance led Mr. Burris to the opinion that it
would be proper to confine him, but he abandoned
that opinion at the suggestion of others. He said
he was not guilty of any crime to cause his de
jection and deranged state of mind; but yet he
had done enough to make him miserable beyond
endurunce.
Mr. King was, perhaps, thirty-five years of age,
rather fair conlplexion, black hair, inclined to
curl, five feet, six or eight inches in height, with
rather a peculiar eve, having a glassy appearance.
He bore the marks of previous violence upon
himself; his throat being considerably scared.
Before shooting himself he seems to have taken
his knife and ripped open his bowels, severing an
intestine. He then seems to have taken the same
knife and dropped it into an already loaded gun,
which he had hv some means contrived to get
hold of, and placingthe muzzle to his temple, with
his toot and handkerchief fired it off*. The shot
took effect in the back of his head, tearing a terri
ble hole, while the knife was found buried to the
jaws in his temple.
No doubt this dreadful suicide was caused by
liquor; the deceased being a dissipated character,
and had just come ofi* a long "spree."

Switzerland.?A Berne newspaper of the 12th
"ays that an emissary who has been arrested in
iicino, has made important revelations which
have been confirmed, to a certain extent, by his
papers. The council of State has ordered the ar
rest of an apothecary and of a canon at Lugano :
and of two other priests and of the printer of the
Patriot, at Lucerno. This has caused some agi
tation. The Ticino Gazette states that the author
ities, both iu Switzerland and Piedmont, are turn

has left London, and that great agitation is per
ceptible among the refugees iu Paris and London.

that a eorju tf arm** had left Ismail, in Bessarabia,
and was on its march via Galatz to Wallachia
The consul adds that, as the dispatch left Buch
arest, a continuous cannonade was hoard from
the direction of the Danube.
A dispatch from Vienna says :
" Fifty thousand Russian troops, under Gen. Os
ten Sac ken, have crossed the Pruth. The report
of a great defeat of the Russians at Bucharest,
proves to be without foundation. There had only
been some skirmishes."
Accounts from St. Petersburg of the 8th state
that orders had been given for the commis
sariat department, with provisions for the troops
around that capital, to be ready to march at a mo
ment's notice. The emperor set out after the re
view of the 3d.
Letters from Constantinople of the 7th, mention
n great concentration ot troops on the Asiatic
frontier. The Turkish squadron bad sailed for the
Black sea. Servia had been summoned to declare
itself; the Servian fortresses are to receive Turk
ish garrisons. ?
Intelligence has been received at Constantino
ple. dated Batoum, the 4th, that a Turkish corps
Lad taken by assault Fort Krapousgw, (called by
the Turks Chekvetill,) a thousand Russians were
killed and eight prisoners taken, including a gen
eral officer. The 3,000 men who defended the
fort, set fire to the barracks, which were entirely
destroyed. 2,000 carbines were found, similar to
those of the Chasseurs de Vincennes, ol the man
ufactory of Liege, and bearing the Prussian eagle.
; Three pieces of cannon were also taken; The
storm was very sanguinary, and a battalion of the
Turkish guards highly distinguished themselves.
Egypt?The present condition and prospects
of Egypt are far from satisfactory. The late ex*
inordinary rise of the Nile had damaged a large
portion of the Indian corn crops, on which the na
tives depend for their sustenance at this season
of tne year; prices for all articles were exceed
ingly high, and the constant seizure of men for the
artny depopulates the towns and villages, not only
of those wno were actually taken, but also of those
who abandoned their homes and concealed them
selves, in order to escape being made into soldiers,
so that the cultivation of the land was not attended
to. and the next year's crop will be short.
For a lew days all trade in corn in Cairo and
its vicinity was stopped, and no one was allowed
to make purchases, the government alone taking
possession of all that came down the river from
the upper country.
It appears that the French cousul had expressed
his determination to prevent the prohibition on
the plea that France wants corn, and that she
must have it without reference to the wants of
Egypt.
It was by some supposed that there was no fear
of actual scarcity of corn in Egypt, and that the
recent measures had been taken merely to put ob
stacles in the way of free trade, in order that the
i viceroy might have a monopoly; while others be
lieved that, if the exportation was allowed, there
would not remain a sufficiency for the mainte
nance of the population.
The viceroy was preparing nl>out 15,000 troops
to send to the sultan, beside the 18,000 sent some
time ago to assist in fighting against the Russians,
and he had ordered his steamers down from Con
stantinople to convey them, besides inducing the
Bedouins to send Some irregular cavalry towards
the Black Sea.
Nearly fifty consecutive miles of railway from
Alexandria were in working condition.
On the arrival of the last steamer from Constan
tinople with the confirmation of the declaration of
war between Turkey and Russia, the Russian
cousul general at Alexandria struck his flag, re
moved the Russian arms from over the entrance
to his residence, and placed the archives and Rus
sian subjects in Egypt under the protection of the
Swedish consul general.

on the sains side of the river.
Private letters from Jassv, of the Gth, announce
that the Russians were sending their sick and
wounded to Kirchencau, a town in Bessarabia.
The number of sick was increasing every day, so
much so, that the hospitals of Wallnchia and Mol
davia were insufficient to contain them.
An extract has been published from a Russian
paper, stating that the emperor would not again
entertain negotiations until the Turks would have
recrossedthe Danube.
Letters from Constantinople slate that a general
attack was about to be made on the Russian line
in Asia, whioh, being of great extent, is vulnera
i ble on severalpoints.
