A Leaf from a Burglar's Hote-Book An ' Extraordinary Hoobery.' ' ' From the London Times, Feb. 18. ' ' Time, which brines all things to light, has now completely revealed all the se crets of a very strage story. It is juBt twelve months since, mqst extraordinary robbery in Cornhill alarmed our metro politan tradesmen for their property. A jeweler's shop,' though protected in what was .thought a, secure fashion, was found on a Monday morning rifled of its pre cious contents. The premises them selves, after being locked up on the Sat urday, night, were left unattended for six and thirty nours, out uie gas was kept alight, the shutters were pierced with holes so that the police could see into the shop at all times, and the most valuable part ot the stock was lodged in an iron safe, believed to be tbief-proof. When the proprietors, however, returned to the sbop on the Monday morning, this afa was found ODeo and the jewelry gone. The speculations and controver sies which followed, and tne arrests, trials and convictions which ultimately ensued, will not have been forgotten ; but the whole . story has now been revived and explained to its minutest particulars in the course of certain legal proceedings iust reoorted. Mr. Walker, the jeweler who was plundered, brought' an action against the manufacturers who supplied him with his safe, and one of the wit nesses produced in court was the chief operator in the roDDery. uis iranx and circumstantial narrative of the affair gives us an insight into matters more in teresting than toe niceties oi iron worn. The robbery' 'had 'been elaborately schemed, and was only accomplished by a regular expedition ot well equipped thieves. The cleverest of the gang had taken Mr. Walker, his family, his habits and his doings under the closest surveil lance for seven weeks before, night and day, until at last everything connected wiih his going nnd coming, his business and his practice, was thoroughly known. This information being complete, a party of five of the robbers . repaired to the premises at ten minutes past six 'on the evening of Saturday, the 4th of Febru ary, 1865. The house was let and occu pied in floors, Mr. Walker's shop being on the ground floor, Sir Charles .Crose ley's offices immediately above, and other offices above these, while below Mr. Walker's shop was a room tenanted by a tailor, ,Xhe occupants, when the thieves arrived on the spot, had nqt yet all left for the night, but the offices on the second floor were empty, and to these three of the robbers at once ascended by means of the common staircase, and there took up their first position, the other two re maining in the street to watch and give signals. At twenty minutes to eight the signal was given by the confederates outside that Mr. Walker's foreman, who appears to have been the last on the premises, was gone, and their operations were at once commenced. The three robbers concealed in the house first, went down to Sir Charles Crosley's floor, where, more for pastime, as it seems, than anything else, they opened the safe. The chief object of the expedition was still postponed, nor was it until past midnight that they be gan the work. .Mr Walker's shop ap pears to have been secured by iron doors or partitions, but the thieves directed their attack against a part which had not unnaturally been left with less pro tection. They got into the'tnilor's room on the lowest floor, mounted upon his cutting board, and then forced their way through the ceiling and flooring into Mr. Walker's shop above. Having thus effect ed a lodgment against the real point of attack, they distributed the duties of the night Of the two thieves stationed on the street, one was to watch lest Mr. Walker or any of his people should re turn to the house, while the other was to kvep' gnard ' over toe ' policPi and give warning whenever any constable ap proached the shop. Inside, one of the gang sat up stairs, in Sir Charles Cros ley's arm chair, at the window of the second floor, to correspond with the sen tries in the street, and the signals of these men he communicated, by means of a string to his comrades below., One of these, placed in a hole half way be tween the shop and the tailor's room, handed up such instruments as were wanted for use, tnt ptber '.'did the work," and it is he, now a convict undergoing his sentence of penal servitude, who tells the story. The first proceeding of the operators was to " test " the safe in which the booty was secured, aud this experiment wns conducted by the insertion: of a thin wedge of steel into the almost impercep tible chink left between the door of the safe tad its. side. Supposing a wedge holds when so driven it is taken as evi dence that the operation is practicable, inasmnch as something or other is clearly yielding to pressure, and that pressure may be gradually and dexterously in creased up to the point desired. If the wedge, instead of holding, rebounds from the plates and files off, it is proof that the affair cannot be managed, or, at least, not in this manner. In this instance the wedge held, and so the operation was continned. First, a little bar was in serted to release the wedge, then another wedge a little larger to release the bar, then another bar a little larger still to release the second wedge, until after ten or a dozen such steps the chink was opened sufficiently for the introduction of "the alderman." The instrument thus dignified in name is a long iron bar, sometimes as much as five feet in length, joined together in pieces, eo at to be carried in a small case. With the end of the "alderman" fairly introduced and the arm of a strong man acting on the other extremity of the lever, the safe has no longer any chance ; and so it was on this occasion. The door was pryed open by the force ef this powerful lever, and the booty was won. At quarter before four on Sunday afternoon the thieves were "up in Sir Cbarle Crosley's office, washing their hands,'' and by twenty ainutet to five they were " miles away on the Guildford road. Oaa. Hood's Be ported InfafesaMt From the Paris (Kr.) Tne Keatackiaa.) i There has been a report going the rounds of the press, that Gen. J. B. Hoed was to be married to a daughter of Gn. Wm. Preston, of Louisville. We re LARGEST CITY CIRCULATION. marked to him that he had to suffer for his notoriety. " Yes," said he, " and it must be exceedingly annoying to the lady, as we bad no acquaintance what ever, having never even seen one an other." - He was recently the gnest of Mr. Jas. Short, of our place, and spent some time with his brother-in-lnw. Dr. Graves, an eminent physician of North Middletown, In this county. He is a much handsomer man than one would judgebimto be from his photograph, and in conversation he has a very pleasant countenance. Some one remarked to him that the greatest difficulty he had at the battle of the Seven Pines, was to keep the leaves which the balls cut off, from fulling be tween his collar and neck. "That," snid he, ' was before they learned to shoot low." Sharpsburg, he considered, the hardest fought field of the war. He fought all day long, in open space, against three times his number, and lost half his men. Important Seciiion. An important decision has been ren dered by the Superior Court of New York. It is thus stated by a dispatch : An important decision on the subject of the value of United Suites Treasury notes, making them equal in everv res pect, in legal contemplation, to similar denominations in gold, has just been ren dered by the general term of the Supe rior Court. The agreement in this case was to make them pay freight money in gold or silver on the delivery of cargo in New York. The plaintiffs, Jno. Wilson & Co., owners of the British ship Atlanta, in January, 18C3, chartered the vessel to Gallaudet, Arbuthnot & Co., of Calcutta, and the cargo was consigned to Edwin D.Morgan and others of this city." The vessel arrived here in June, and freight money amounting to $32,630.00 was tendered in Treasury notes. The offer was refused, and payment in specie demanded. This was refused, and the controversy carried to the Superior Court, ani the decision written by Judge Worrell lays down the law to be that all debts cun be satisfied by a tender of U. S. Treasury notes. Former adjudications have merely established the fact that contracts made before the passage of the act of 18C2, and providing for payment in the legal currency of the country could be satisfied by paympnt in U. S. Treasury notes. . , Good Joke by the President. John Hoppy, of the Nashville Banner, gives the following humorous description of hisjourneyings after a pardon: "Had a personal interview with the Chief Mag istrate, and asked him for a small pardon, if he had any left. Chief Magistrate wanted to know what position I held in the rebellion. The answer was faint, somewhat hesitating, and a little sVnky. I said 'Quartermaster.' Chief Magis trate chuckled, and turned his bead to conceal a sardonic smile. 1 My ancient and venerable friend,' said he, ' if you think that tour department of the rebel lion endangered the Union cause, your simplicity is a rwrdnn in itnolf,"' PROSSIONAL.
