Should the bank ! rreoter 00 more of tbeir stolen funds, it is in good condition; as the prudent mantzement of it bad bud away nearly this amount as a sur plus fund, for a wet nay. The Franklin County 11 wk has for tbe liaw saspeodej, and ordered the SuiT .Ik Dank not to take their bill The object ot this Is to make their bills worthless for tbe time. But all honest hoMers of the bills need not be alarmed, as tbey will be made good in due coarse of time. The amount taken from Ihe Fraakrn County Bank is brtwsea 70 and 5.000 92i.0OJ of which has, we learn, been recovered. Tbe National Bank continues to do bus ness, and no one need to have any hesitancy about takmg their bills, which are. so to speak, " as good the wheat." There are only eleven of the raiders thus far captured. Col. or Ctpt. Clyde, who assamra liie leadership of the gang, keeps up the most bratea effrontery.

Benton, romtnandio? at StvAlban, in new of n cent events are timely and judic i jus, and nre a valuable here a there. We commend them to tlie notice of our citizens, cspcti illy those wbo bate enrolled tbemselres for military service . Tbe danger to t appreheisl.d is a srdden dash and surprise. Accordingly the essential point is to secure prompt action. Te this end tbe citueas of all ths frontier villages should have an orgvaizition, and be prepared to act under recognized leaders. Arms will beissued sufhiient to equip such compinies. The arms so issued should cot be krpt in any armory, or one place, for such ar mory woull be the first place of attack, and the arms so isiued would be used to defeat the pur pose for which they are sent. The moskcts should be d'sUrhutsl among the members of tbe companies and kept at their sev eral places of business w th the cquipmeats in such position as can be put in use in the least pts-tble time. Every member of the companies should l personally instructed in patting on his belt;, and prscticeJ till he can equip himself in three seconds. They should hare freqnent exercise in rallying into line, so as to be able to get in order in the 1 . s poes.be time. Too much pains cannot be taken to impress upon the citizens the necessity of being in line ween they meet the enemy Unlm they are so, it is worss than useless to issue muskets, for our own men are in as mush danger as tbe en emy. Besides in line there is much less expo sure. Properly organized, no pirty, however smill, need have any fear of attacking the largest parly of raiders, because they cannot stop to hhr. They cannot know how many reserves will corns up, and when resolutely attacked must yield or run. The chief obicct cf tha raiders is plunder, bnt they cannot transport goods except jewelry. It is not probable tbey could hare the means and time to break open even a common safe if the cities keep oa the alert. The beat way for a msn to defend his store is to unite with his neighbors and defend the who! village. If every man stays at home, to.defecd hia house, the result is the whole village ij taken in detail, and the arms kept In tilt wayosly strengthen tbe czcoy, -oVflta eaanot U i-fptud fj i nasi (a tizi ray.
