The Tnink Itobbrry.
The Mtslcry Siitvrtt I'omcrni's Trunk lie covered Am st of the liidiiidiml who stole it. At length wcare enabled to place the history if this singular robbery before the public On Friday, about halt' past 12 o'clock, the messen ger of the Ilank or New York called nt the Merchants' Bunk for the purpose of settling the exchange account. Among the note of the Merchant' Bank, held by the Rank of Xovv York, was one for $-"0(), w hich was recognized by the Teller as being one of the notes lost by Messrs, Drew, Robinson & Co., No. 40 Wall street, who had given the letter anJ number to every bank in the street. iMcssrs. Drew nnd Ho binsnn were fent for immediately, and they un hesitatingly pronounced it to be the note. It is a little singular that this was the only note the mark uf which had been taken at Troy, previous t' having been given into Cobb's possession. Inquiries! were instituted at the Bnnk ofN'evv York, and it was ascertained that it had been deposited there by the firm of Willium A. Yon soht Jfc. Co., impuiters of German good?, No. 1 1 Cedar street. Information was conveyed to the Mayor by Mr. Daniel Drew, while the rest proceeded to Cedar street, to make the neces sary inquiries from Vonscht iV Co. There they learned that the note bad been received for a bill of goods purchased by a Herman na med Larimer, who gave his residence at No. 3'2 Ri vinytoii street. The Mayor instantly despatched bis first Marshal, Anson Clarke, to arrest l.achupr, anil with his usual tact nnd activity, that officer pounced upon bis man as he was leaving the Ftore of Btischmuller, No. 1011 Cedar street, and by a ruse brought him to No. 11 Cedar street, where was the Mayor. Lachner was instantly recognized by Mr. Yonseht as the per son who bad passed the bill. An oilier r was despatched to Justico Taylor, of the Up per Police, with instructions from the Mayor to search the premises No. JLJ. Rivington st, and arrest all persons found there, and bring them to the Mayor's office. Meanwhile, the prisoner Lachner was given into the custody of the Marshal, who was aided by David Leavitt, Kiq , President of the American Exchanire Bank, who, throughout, rendered the most effi cient uid to the Mayor in this mutter. On the way, tn the office, the prisoner, who is a large, athletic man, made a very desperate clloit to escape being, as the marshal describes liini, "very ugly indeed ;" but lie was too securely helil on eitiier bide to break away, though he tore up the sleeve of bis coat in the struggle. He was then pinioned, and safely lodged in the olliec to await the result of the search. On his person was found about ,1."0. In about half an hour Justice Taylor arri ved in a two horse cab, having in custody the wife of Lachner, and the very identical Intnl., marked with Pomeroy & Co's name on the end in white paint also, three other trunks of a much larger size. The trunk was disco vered under the bed in the basement story of the house, the upper portion of which is occu pied as a school-house. A quantity of the bills were found stowed away in the bed, and among the clothing of the woman also in the other trunks. The wife cried bitterly as she was be ing led away, and denied any knowledge of the possession of the money by her husband. Jjichucr was at once committed to the Tombs, with his arms tied behind his back with a strong cord. Tho examination ol the trunk was then proceeded with, and Messrs. Drew, Robin ko:i, and Popoon were appointed to count the money. They counted over forty-four thousand tlol- lars and it is believed by these gentlemen, and by the Mayor, that all tho money, w ith the ex ception of 1000, is atb. The examination has been strictly private, every person resem bling a reporter or newspaper agent being spe cially prohibited. The above facts, however, can be depended upon, as they were communi cated officially by order of his Honor the Mayor. The story of Lachner is, that be lelttieruiany, Est bummer, and ariived iii this city in the montli of June, and proceeded to settle as a j ny of your readers. 1 cut it from the Ply itierclnnt in Milwuukie, where fie has a pirt- : moutb, "Old ('dimi Miamri'il," of the (itb tier; that about seven week ago he arrived j inst.

Hut it is doubtful very much so indeed ! Mo re fuses to tell any thing about how he came in possession of that trunk, though we leuru that a man has recognized him as being the person he 6aw crossing the Park with a black trunk, about three o'clock on the morning of tho robbery. Ilia wife bis been allowed to gi home under the charge of an officer. The invest igalion had not closed at the Mayor's Office nt a very late hour last night. A poitiou nf lite money hail been changed into gold, ami it is somew hat singular that this did not lead to the discovery. The office of the Mayor was literally besie ged from the moment the arrest became known. The Wall street brokers were b arming in and about the door and avenues leading to the I w t.ati wn.ked to Worcester in one day (a dis (iflice, endeavoring to pain infonui'ioii.

The .moat kmgulur part of the entire transactions is the origin of these suspicions, and tho high game marked cut by the originators to throw tho scent oil" the track of the real villians. That such could not have originated with lachner alone is certain, and we learn that officers have been despatched ost-hastc in various directions. YVo sh:ill probably be allowed some further insight into the matter during the day. A'. Y. Herald. Trntn the Uuf'iiln Commercial Advertiser. I'.nrope-ller I bin.

His friends say that this was not done w ith a view of favoring any particulur individu al ; but a combination of events prove, most con clusively, that the ''high contracting powers" have determined to force upon the people Martin Van lluren, as the nominee and candidate of Un democratic party, ut the next Presidential elec tion. The last movement on foot, it seems is. that Col. Johnson is to be the candidate for Vice President, on the ticket with Mr. Van Huron. We can hardly believe. Vet, that Col.
