On last Thursday forenoon, a gang of eight mounted men made their appearance in Northfield, and while four of them went into the bank to rob it, the others kept up a fusilade on the streets, to intimidate the citizens from interfering with the bank. TheTobbers endeavored to force the cashier, Mr. J. L. Hey wood, to open the safe but he would not do it, although they struck him with a pistol and swore that they would kill him if he did not comply. The delay caused by Mr. Hay wood's bravery gave time for the citizens to recover from the first shock of surprise and alarm, and the accomplices outside warned the robbers in the bank to hurry out. Before leaving the bank, one of the robbers shot Mr. Heywood through the head, killing him instant ly. Thk act was a cold-blooded and cowardly murder, for Mr. Hey wood was utterly helpless at the time from the injuries he had prev iously received. Mr. Bunker one of the tellers was, also, shot in the shoulder, as he was about running from the ,bank. He is not badly hurt. Nicholas Gustatfson, whom they shot on the street, has since died. Several citizens had, by this time, armed themselves and were firing upon the robbers. Two of them were hit, one dying on the spot and the other soon afterwards. These were since identified by Mr. L. M. Hazen, a Cincinnati detective, as Charley Pitts and Bill Chadwell. The latter was killed by a shot fired by a young man named Wheeler from a second story window, of a building opposite the bank. An other of the party was wounded, but got away. One of the horses was also killed. Finding the citizens thoroughly aroused, the robbers took the road towards Morristown, and shortly after a company of citizens well mounted started in pursuit. From that time the pursuit has been con tinued, other companies from vari ous quarters joining in. It was sup posed that the robbers were con cealed in the Big Woods, and it was believed on Sunday that they could not escape. Maj. Strait went to the scene of operations on Friday, and endeav ored to procure an organization of the pursuers, so as to surround the woods and close in upon them, but at last advices this plan had not been successfully carried into effect, and it was doubtful whether they had not already left the woods. Or, again it is not improbable that they have confederates in that vicinity, who are either aiding them in keep ing concealed, or have helped them to get away in disguises. .Those who profess to know, de clare them to be the James and Younger gang of Kansas, and say that Jesse and Frank James and two of the Younges are with this com pany. Some of this same gang were in this city not long ago and purchased horses and equipments here. They, also, visited the banks. One of them answers to the descrip tion of Jesse James, but they were not suspected at that time. The people of Northfield deserve great credit for the vigorous efforts they put forth to capture the corpses of these scoundrels. There are re wards of about $3,000 per head of fered for the robbers and they will, no doubt, be vigilantly followed, let them go where they may. The State offers $1,000 and the North field bank $500 each for them. Since the above was written re ports have been received that the horses a»d saddles of the robbers were found in the woods near Ely sian. They were delivered to the authorities of Rice county- It is, also, reported that the robbers were seen at Indian lake, three miles from Mankato, on Tuesday, by Sheriff Davis, of Faribault county but the truth is feat their whereabouts is un known, and while it is to be hoped that they may be caught iby the parties stiri in pursuit it is doubtful if they will be. —The democratic press essayed a very "thin" excuse for the charge brought against Mr. Tilden for his alleged false swearing as to his in come in 1862. The explanation that his income, over and *bove what he returned, was in payment of what he had earned in former years, did rxst relieve him if it had been true, *rA its truth is positively denied. The next move was to bring a charge against Mr. Hayes, of having made a false return of his property for taxation in 1763. The latter immediately denied this, giv ing all the circumstances in detail and showing that the accusation is utterly groundless. Now, why does not Mr. Tilden, if innocent, do like wise? If the charge is not true, in half an hour's time he can give a statement which will make its falsity apparent and his refusal to do this inclines even his friends to believe that he is guilty of what is charged. —Gov. Pillsbury has issued a proclamation on the subject .of grasshoppers, in which he urges the people to take measures for the de struction of these pests, and with that end in view, advises them to consult together and act in concert. He alludes to various methods of destroying the hoppers, and con cludes with the excellent advice that the people of the infested districts should rely upon their efforts rather than upon the temporary govern mental assistance. —The Greenback convention for the 2d congressional district was held at Farmington yesterday.
