SATURDAYSDECEMBER 26, 1857.
Idfo and Adventures of Three Desper ate Bobbers. Several months since the Bank of New Erunswick was broken into, and orr sev enty thousand dollars stolen from its vaults. ,-Tha details of this audacious robbery hare already been published; and after being tracked for a long time, and through many places, its perpetrators have at last been captured, and are now awaiting trial before the Court of Assises in Nova Scotia. rThey are three in number, and their names are Phil. Stanley, Jack Rand and Bill Smith. These three men apparently are none of your small, vulgar rascals. They display the trophies of no less than sixteen memo rable achievements, of which each of them boasts; and whether they exaggerate the importance and recklessness of these from' a love of boasting, we will not stop to inquire. The fcader of the trio is Phil. Stanley, alias PhiL Stanford, who prides himself up on being one of the most artful villains in Christendom. He was born in England, ni ia nrtfr tTiirtv-twn vpars old. His man ner is affable and quiet; yet he is a very devil in hardihood, and gifted with almost unparalleled firmness. He has the eyes of the lynx, the subtlety of a cat, the quick decision of a consummate general,- and a force of execution which sets all obstacles at defiance. He first became known on this continent in the city of Buffalo, where, in a single night, he committed three burglaries. He was arrested for the crime, tried, convicted and sentenced to nine years and nine months imprisonment. Unfortunately, his sentence was soon after commuted, and, true to his instincts, he hastened to deserve another. This fellow is aristocratic in hU trade. He entertains a hearty contempt for small rascalities, and aspires to great projects and achievements. Scarcely had he got out of prison, when he planned a grand enterprise against the Milton Bank, of Dorchester, and one fine morning that institution missed $32,000. Having succeeded in this great project, he carried on his operations in Al bany, Rochester, Buffalo and Springfield; sometimes alone, sometimes with his asso ciates. But in Buffalo the bird was caged the second time, the Grand Jury found a true bill of indictment, and he was sentenc d to the Auburn State Prison for another period of nine years and nine months?" In the meantime Phil, had married the widow of a Jew, who kept an obscure ho tel in the city of Auburn. When he found himself a KPrnntl time under the restraint of iron bars and heavy locks, he set his genius to work to devise the means of recovering his liberty. He drew up a petition to the Governor of the State for his pardon, sign ed by all the employees of the prison, and i : i r : j it. , v. Judge, sent it on to Governor Seymour. His Excellency was ensnared by the trick. He promptly sent on an order for his release, .and in a few days Phil, found - himself out side the prison walls. The fraud was after- WAvrYa fliaMraMfl And Affinara xtr AM A 1 crQ tll. ed to find the criminal; and after a long and fruitless search they listened to the propo sals of his wife, who agreed to discover his whereabouts on certain conditions. The bargain being consummated, Phil, got off with two years and six months im prisonment. This inadequate punishment only whetted his appetite, and gave him new faith in his lucky star; and he soon after robbed the Windham County Bank of 823, 000. He next turned his thoughts upon Canada, and went to Montreal, where he committed many robberies with impunity among others, one of 61,000 from the of fice of the Grand Trunk Railroad. A po lice officer, getting a clue to his proceedings, tracked him to Buffalo, where he succeeded in capturing him. . He was locked up for two or three months, and then let off for want of sufficient evidence. After getting rid of this annoyance thus fortunately, he went toftew lork, where hi3 wife was then living. Scarcely had he step ped out of the cars, when this adorable ere a ture demanded a fur mantilla. Could he refuse such a request to a loving anel who had turned aside the poisoned arrows of jus tice, aimed at his devoted head? The thing was not to be thought of. Though Phil, had not the funds, he assured her he was 'not the man to 6poil his dignity by pilfer ing so petty a thing. To relieve himself of ihe emDarrassmeni, ne signaiizea me nigni Ciiis visit to the metropolis by breaking into a store and stealing a quantity of rich furs, which he thought could not fail of satisfying the most extravagant wishes of his beloved. But unfortunately for him he had not obtained the article ready made, but he had only taken the raw materials, and though the skins were magnificent, his wife upbraided him in no gentle terms for this amhi; "TKav mn:i An " cm'iA PV.il "they must be made up." They were ac cordmgly sent to a furrier, where, as luck would have it, they were seen and recogniz ed by the lawful owners, and Phil was ar rested when he called for the article. - "So it has often happened," philosophi cally remarked poor Phil, on his way to the Tombs; "these cursed baubles of women have often ruined great men." But he did not content himself merely with giving ut terance to the maxims of wisdom; but while on his way to that venerable penal institu tion he slipped from the officers, outstrip ping them in the race, escaping from the city, fied to Michigan, robbed the State Bank of $11,000; went to Connecticut, plunder ed several jewelry stores in that State, rob bed an Indian exchange agent of a conside rable sum, plundered several of the principle shops, and joined Jack Rand and BUI Smith. The trio next attempted to rob an oil com pany. - By means of lalse -keys, the rascals got into the company's safe,' but to their chagrin found the coffers empty. For two or three nights they continued the experi ment, but still found bo money. Enraged with his ill success. PhiL resolved not to have all this trouble for nothing. Having carefully examined the company's books and acquainted himself with their method m , V Ol doing uu&ibcss, ira lurjjeu wieir uawca, and personating one of their employees, got it discounted and left the city.- When the note became due, the unfortunate employee, whose name he had assumed, was tried for forgery and sentenced to Sing Sing for fire years,. . - Thence the confederates went to Quebec. Their exploits in that city having alarmed the people and waked up the vigUance of the ofSeers, they left for Nova Scotea, ; A few weeks after their arrival there, the bank robberv of 875,000 was committed. In this stupendous affair Phil, employed all his devilish genius. .. His manner of pro-! ceeding is sometimes slow, but always sure. With a bit of wax he took an impression of the outside door-lock, and from this model they constructed a key. Another night the robbers entered the building and took im pressions of the locks of the drawers and vaults, and made other keys as before, and were now sure of success. It-is asserted that PhiL has often devoted six months study to the plan of an enterprise, and when it promised largely, has not scrupled to spend 82,000 in maturing it. He posses ses great powers of strategy and invention. At Auburn he made a key for securing the grates, and gave it to the jailor, who told the secret to a house in New York.' They got it patented, and have realized large prof its from its sale. Ordinarily, Phil, managed an affair, and let his confederates execute it. But in .Nova Scotia he departed from this prudent custom, j and to this negligence he owes his detecton. ! Jack Rand, one of his accomplices, was born in New Hampshire, where he exercis ed the trade of a blacksmith. He began his career of crime with stealing 8500, for which he suffered two years' imprisonment. After the expiration of his term, he fig ured in the robbery of the Portsmouth Bank, and received 87,000 as his share of the spoils. He sent a part to his father, who, reing found with some of it in his pos session, was arrested for the crime. Jack, not altogether forgetful of the obligations of a son, confessed himself the guilty party to the police. He was imprisoned, and his father set at liberty; but the rascal made his escape in about four months. At Concord he was arrested for larceny. He got out again, and in New Jersey this modern Jack Sheppard committed a heavy wharf robbery. They caught and imprisoned him, and for the third time he broke jail. He was, how ever, recaptured in Philadelphia, and sent back to rew Jersey, where he was acquitted in some unexplained manner. He went to Canada with Stanly, and the two traveled up and down the St. Lawrence, &c. The last of this diabolical trio is Bill Smith, whom we may regard as the ser vant, or rather slave, of the others. He does the most dangerous and servile work and oeceives least pay. N. Y. Post. Commerce of Turkey. A correspondent of the New York Jour nal of Commerce, writing from Constanti nople under date of 1 8th October, says the commerce of Constantinople and indeed of all the Ottoman r.mpire has never been worse than it is at the present time. Ex change on London is at about thirty per cent, premium, and specie at twenty-four per cent. The principal bankers have bo't up all the specie m Galata and Constanti nople, for shipment to England, to meet the payment of their bills of exchange, and consequently no change is to be had in the city. In the meantime the government, compelled to cover its expenses, continues to strike off large amounts of paper notes. These notes do not extend much beyond the capital, and consequently all of the specie remains m the Provinces. What will be come of Turkey, overflooded as it is with paper money, can well be imasrined. It cannot do without it, for it has not the means of issuing any other money. The Sultan's Treasury' Bonds, bearing 12 per cent, interest, are at 40 per cent, discount. The same writer says of Tunis, that like most Moslem countries, it is fast sinking into wretchedness and poverty. Contact with civilization has done none of them any good, and they will, before another century has passed, follow the fate of the "poor In dian." Bussia. There are no less than 303 gold mines in operation in Siberia. Their owners pay the Government from 20 to 35 per cent, of the product. In 1856 they yielded 40,000 pounds of gold. The number of books introduced into the empire since the duties on them have been abolished, is very great. Great hopes are entertained among the Poles as to the improvement of their social and political condition, but no one dreams of a restoration of Jfoland. Almost all ex iles have been pardoned, and have returned to their country. Russia suffers by the state of rebellion in India, which reacts on China. The War Department has given orders to put all the fortresses which might be exposed by the Mahomedan movement on the best footing of defence. The Russian Invalid, an important paper, has an article to show that if England is not able to maintain her dominion in India, that country, so popu lous, so rich by her industry and the prod ucts of her soil, cannot be suffered to be plunced into a longer anarchy, and what En land is not able to do others will do in con currence with her, and that the result may be a general protectorate of India. Liberia:? Coix. We have been shown the one cent and two cent pieces of Libe- nan com. 1 hey are abdut the same size, though not so heavy as the English half penny and penny pieces, and are prominent' ly marked with their respective denomina tions. On the one side is a representation of the palm tree in bloom, the ocean, with steamer in the distance, and the figures "1847," the latter referring to the date of formation as a republic. On the reverse, head of Liberty and cap, with a star in the cap, and the words "Republic of Liberia," and three small stars, representing the three counties or States which comprise the young nation. . The metallic currency of Liberia consists in - the one and two cent pieces. They were struck in London in 1851, and present a creditable appearance. Rrssnar Serfdom. The ukase which es tabiishes the position of the serfs in Rus sia, and the decreee by which they can not only farm lands but purchase them, was published the 18th inst, the birth-day of the Czar roeholas. A committee, of which the Grand Duke Const&ntine is President, will regulate the contracts between the pro prietors and their peasants. The peasants will be able to pay for the purchased land oy instalments; tne terms oemg nxea in advance. The difficulties and even dangers which attend the realization of this liberal measure, 'are such that the first steps will, perhaps, be merely preparatory. . - Wm. H. Belcher, the St Louis sugar re finer, has given it as his opinion that the Chinese bugar Cane syrup cannot be gran ulated that he has failed, in experiments which he has made, to convert it into sugar. This does not prove, however, that it can not be done. Honey Brought by Immigrants. The amount of money brought into the country by forei m immigrants is much great er than is generally supposed, though it can not be actually ascertained, jacn. immi grant is questioned as to his possessions, but it is believed these are in a majority of cases underrated, under the fear of tax or robbery. A record kept at New York for several years past, snows an average of 843.25 to each immigrant. The aggregate sum brought by 105,707 immigrants arriv ed during the eleven months ending July 30, 1856, was 85,398,369.54 an average of 850.79 to each person. The number of immigrants arrived in the United States du ring last six years and a quarter, from Sept. 1849 to Dec. 1855, was 82,279,007. If they brought on an average 850 each and it was doubtless more than, that the money in their hands amounted to 8113,950,350. The 379,620 passengers each year for the last five years have brought an annual aver age of 818,981,000, or almost nineteen mil lion dollars a year.' . One German who land ed in New York lately, reported his ready cash at 810,000, which he and his wife bore in sovereigns, in belts about their persons. It was ascertained that, in addition to this sum, they had 820,000 in drafts. The same source from which we have ob tained these facts furnishes the following additional interesting information: "According to the report of the English Emigration Commissioners, published in a parliamentary blue book, the amount of money remitted home to friends in Grea Britain and Ireland during eight years end ing with 1855, was 8,393,000, or in our currency, 841,965,000.' As the greatest bulk of the emigration went to the United States, the largest share of this money was sent from this country. This amount is only what was sent through large banking houses; many smaller sums, and considera ble by private hands, never being recorded or known. The 6ums sent in three years were as follows: 1853 1854 1855 1,439,000 1,730,000 - 873,000 Total, 4,042,000 Here is a total in three years of over four million pounds sterling more than twenty million dollars. The Commissioners report that the sums received amount to more than double the entire expenses of the emigrants for passage and subsistenceduring the years mentioned, lhere is an evident anx iety on the part of the British authorities at losing such a large proportion of their pop ulation; and the money sent back to friends at home augurs well for the worldly pros pects of those wh have made their homes in foreign lands," Chicago Tribune. The Frightful Increase of Crime jn New York Citt. The increase of crime in this metropolis, says the New York Her ald, within the last few weeks, has been per fectly appalling. The worst exaggerations of Kanzas border ruffianism in its wotst days fall short of the horrid realities daily and nightly transpiring in the midst of this community. Our streets literally swarm with savages, and their atrocities are only exceeded by those of the Sepoys at Cawn pore and Delhi. The young girl and the poor old woman reduced by sickness and the infirmities of age to the verge of the grave, fall alike the victims to our city trained Apaches; and our half grown tiger cubs, who have turned to the profession of garro ting, pounce alike upon any lonely passen ger promising the trophy of a pocket-book, a watch, or a breast-pin. The infamous dens and stews of all sorts which undermine our city like the rat warrens of a granary, appear to have turned loose their murderers, robbers and vagabouds of every description into the streets, as for a grand carnival of crime. Neither San rrancisco, when driv en to the revolutionary necessity of a vigi lance committee, nor Vicksburg, when re duced to the alternative of stringing up its impudent gamblers, suffered a tithe of what we are now suffering from that rampant ruffianism which defies our authorities and our laws. ' A Contrast. New York pays for city salaries 8412,500 Boston 880,000. New York pays for police 8825,000 Boston 8188,286. New York pays for street ex penses and paving 8625,000 Boston 8169,906. New York pays for printing and stationery 8105,000 Boston 811,873. New York pavs for lamps and gas 8456, 490 Boston '8133,042. New York pays for election expenses 820,500 Boston 81, i96. And yet, notwithstanding this great disproportion of expense against New York, Boston is universally the better governed oity. Rather Sharp. Rumor was afloat in our village a few days ago, that a highly respectable produce house ..in Boston , bad failed, . Thereupon a consignor of the house, who is well known at the St. Albans depot, telegraphed to them to ascertain defi nitely if they had failed. The following good natured" reply was promptly returned : "News to us ; it can't be done BrnTB from twenty to twenty-one." St. Albans, Vt.t Messenger. During the May anniversaries in New York city, flte following dialogue was over heard between two of the news-boys: "I say, Jimmy, what's the meaning of so ma ny preachers being here all together?" Why," answered Jim, "they always meets here once a year to exchange sermons with each other." A son of Galen, who was very angry when any joke was passed on physicians, once defended himself from raillery by say ing: ' ' "I defy any person whom lever attended to accuse me of ignorance or neglect." "That vou may do safely," replied a wag; "for vou know. Doctor, dead men tell no tales." - - ' - Jones, while engaged in splitting green wood at Morphet, struck a false blow, caus ing the stick to fly up. It struck him on the jaw, and knocked out a front tooth. "Am said Bill, meeting him soon after, "you had a dental operation performed, I see. " "Yes,," said the sufferer, "aze-iden-tal." .- Good friends should not be easily forgot ten, nor used as suits of apparal, which, when we" have worn them threadbare, we cast off, and call for new. All reports as U character deal largely ia exaggeration.; "I never knew," say s a wise man, "any one either as good or as had as he iras represented." " Trevorton Coal. This is a new variety of coal that has re cently been introduced to this market, which has some .peculiarities which entitle it to special mention.- . . . Trevorton is near toe center ot .rennsyi--ania, on this side of the Alleghanies, and not far from the Dauphin coal-beds. It is semi-anthracite as that is semi-bituminous ; that is, it is less bituminous than the Dau phin. - It kindle3 easily and burns freely in fact, it has been lighted with paper alone so ireeiv mat we snouia nanny consider it a profitable fuel where anthracite may be had as low or lower per ton. But the Tre vorton coal is very convenient . where only a little hre is required a quart of it suffi cing to make a lively fire and especially acceptable where a quick fire is needed to cook the breakfast of one who must be off to his work betimes. It does not clinker at all, but will burn off the clinker which has fastened upon grate-bars during the burning of anthracite and i3 purchased for this reason for sea-going steamers. It will doubtless be used extensively if not gener ally as fuel for locomotives. It has a tend ency to pulverize while burning, and should have closer grate-bars than are required for burning anthracite. , The ground of almost all our false rea soning is, that we seldom look any further than on one side of the question.

I have made some im- Erovements on this plow from last year, and I be eve it is now perfect to be used on Western soil Also, Corn Plows, Cultivators, double and single Shovel Plows, Rolling Cutters and Clasps, Gauge Wheels, Truck Wheels, and other Plow fixtures. The ouality of the stock used in my plows is not equalled by any establishment in the West, and the plows are finished in a very superior style. Having been engaged for eighteen years in the manufacture of plows for use in the Western States entirely, I can confidently say to emigrants from the Eastern States, that these plows tfill scour and work perfectly in any soil in the Mississippi Val ley.
