f; A New and Dangerous Weapok.
The j school of 4 gonoffs," commonly
known as highwaymen, have ' imported
from' London, or some1 other Europeart
capital, a new; stylo of bludgeon, to bo
used upon their' highway victims.' It is
called, the 44 sand-club," and its use is al
most certain to prodiico . death. It is
made of strong canvass, in the shape of
a club about twenty inches long, and from
six to eight inches in circumference.: This
bag or club is filled with closely-packed,
fine sand, and weighs from five to ten
pounds, and has great advantage over thd
ordinary club or bludgeon, brass knuckles'
or slunjr-sbot. It will not rebound after
a blow is struck, and it leaves no mark or
bruise. .Whence victim is struck on the
top of the nead, and there is where the
sand-club is. directed, ho instantly sinks to
tho pavement, without atrugglo, the re
sult of concussion to the brain,, and not
even a bruise,' which any ordinary blunt
instrument makes, is tb bo discovered on
the scalp of the vicljm, aftor tho sand
club has performed its fearful mission.
Some of the, ciubs .have already boen
