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

rounds of the press, that Gen. J. B. Hoed

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,"'

" The jKtna Insurance Company, of Hartford,
one of the most successful Fire Insurance dm
panica of this or any other oouuiry."
" Connecticut Companies follow the rules and
practices of the j.lna almost as carefully as if
they were embodied in statute law.
Aain, pointing to errors of practice in
New York companies, the Etna's successful
manoreincnt and solid rules are eallcd to their
attention thus:
It still remains more a matter ot wonder
thaa imitation in the insurance world."
"Bywhat subtle alchemy has this corporation
been enabled to turn its full-paid capital into
the philosopher s stone f "
"Th extraordinary event" which have dis
tincuished iu unparalleled financial history.
The aversae losses per diem in the United
Stales, at this period of the year, are about
fSSO.OOO.
The telearaph daily sounds startling- notes of
