At Xew Rich mond, O., twenty-five miles up tho O.iio river from Cincinnati, at 4 o'clock yester day afternoon, a mob took Noah Ander son, colored, from tho jail and banged him for the murder a few hours previous of Franklin FriJman, nearly 6) years old and president of the First National bank of that place. FriJman was among tbe wealthiest men in Clermont county. Ho owned u number of farms nnd lived at Clermontville, about two miles from New Richmond. Ho was driving into New Richmond shortly after noon, when ho stopped at one of bis bouses. Il.tching his horse at the dooryard he went into an n ljoining field, whero ha was suddenly attacked by Noah Anderson, a muscular nero, who bid no we.inons but his han-ls.

It is said that Anderson was not righi in his mind, and that ono of his halluci nations was that Fridman had depr.r;d him of a large sura of money. Tbo truth is that the tAo men had had no dealings together, as Anderson camo to New Richmond on a shanty boat only a few months n-ro and claimed to bo a paper banger. The crowd nbout the jail be came wildly excited, lho negro s con fession became known, and cries of "Lynch him!" "Hang the coward!' arose. A ropo was brought.

Union lVilic train No. t, which was held up by cpref rob bers three miles cast of Brady's Island, pulled into Omaha two hours and ten minutes late. If tho news of tho occur rence bad not preceded it tho appearanc of the express car was sufficient to show that something unusual hid occurred. Tho dynamite explosion had blown all the windows from tho car and through tho openings could be tho seen shattered interior, lho floor wa3 littered with bits of glass arid splinters and tho safes, trunks and other articles all bore evi. dence of the tremendous forcj of tho ex plosion. Tho big safe at ono side 'on whbh tho dynamite had b--en niled was badly man gled. Tho top was cracked in several di rections aud ono big rent near tho center indicated thj sp it where tho explosive bad been placed. The force of the explo sion, however, was not snffieient tonfford access to tho Interior. Iixpres? Messen ger Thomas McC.irl was engaged in making up his report. According to his statement the robbers did not cot over tiUU for their trouble. They had sacked tho way safe, but failed to ft insidt of the large safo which contained tue most valuable packages. Conductor Flynn says that tho robberj undoubtedly boarded the train at Brady's Island. They laid low until the train reached the second curve in the sand hills when they c'imbed ever tho tender and levelled their revolvers at the cngtneei and fireman and compelled tbem to stop tho train. Then they ordered tho engineer to cut the train behind the express car. hut he pretended that he could not undo the coupling, and this was abandoned. Then they took him to tho north door of the express car and ordered him to call to the messenger to open tho door. The engineer told the messenger that they carried Winchesters and would biow the top of his head clT unless the door was opened. Conductor t iynn thinks that tho escape of the fireman, with tho engine ol armed the robbers and caused them to leave before they had completed their work. The horses of the robbers have been ! captured, and it is b-'lievc.l here that the bandits are surrounded. Forty well armed men are in pursu:?, and a fight is expected. leoj Ku!t in liunble Monlvr.
