A SIiIGCLAIT. , CASZ-A. WOMAN Al 3
Suarkfria:—Among the meat pardons
granted by Gov. Efartnanft, was that, of . e,
German named David G. Sill, who wn
swindled by a woman out of over $309 - in
'money and sentenced_ to prison for one
year on a false charge of robbery. The
German, who is a native of:Russia, says
that last wintei he determined to emigrate
this country having heard of it being
such a goO r d plaCe to obtain work. On the
let or 2d of Pebrunry last he took the
steamer at Beetnen for New York. On
board the-414 he met a young wom
an, apparently not over twenty years
of age. The young woman became very
friendly 3vith, him and seemed to make
herself interested samewhat in his wel
fare. She asked hi in where he was
bound for. He replied, "New York."—
She then stated that - -she was a married
woman and had a husband living in St-
Louis, as well as a brother; that if be
would go along with her to St. Louis she
could get him employment at her broth
er's. He thought this good luck, as-he did
not know where to lay Ills foot or turn
his band-when ,e would get into New
York, and he gladly accepted the offer.—
When they arrived at Castle Garden he
had his gold money changed into green
backs. Ile bad $371 in gold, and after
his money changed and paying
fare to St. Louis he had $391 in green
backs. He and the woman took the cars
for St. Louis, going by way of Meadville
Pa. On the way to Meadville the wom
an stated that they would have to remain
over there from tea o'clock at night until
seven °Week in the morning in order to
make the connection of trains. At the
first station before they reached Mea
vile, Sill got out to get a cup of coffee,
leaving the young woman sitting in a
seat apparently asleep. Just as be enter
ed the car again the woman junapecLup,
and fumbling about her clothes helloed
she was robbed, calling the conductor
with the same breath, and pointing to
him (Sill) said "that's the man that rob
bed me." She said that she had been rob
bed of $333 in. bank notes and a $9OO
check. Afterwards, however, she denied
the cheek part. As soon as the train stop
ped at Meadville, the woman had a police
man called in and had Sill arrested. He
was taken to the lock up. and upon being
searched $397 were found upon him. Tho
circumstantial evidence of robbery was,of
course, very strong and Sill was held-for
trial. It at first dumbfounded the prisoner
—he bad placed so much confidence in the
woman—and for her thus to act toward
him he couldn't understand. He at length
concluded, however, that it was a "set up
job" to rob him.. lie remembered of
having counted his money in the presence
of the woman, and she therefore could
guess pretty nearly what amount he had.
Knowing nearly the sum he bad, she had
taken this means of robbing him of by
falsely alleging that she had been robbed
herself, having him arrested for it, and
upon his conviction, of course, she would
get the amount she claimed. tibe worked
her case well and got.what she wanted.—
Sill was tried, convicted and sentenced to
one year in the penitentiary. The a
mount she savor she had,beeir robbed of
(300) was then - paid over to her out of
Sill's money found upon his person, and
the remainder was held by the county.—
The woman then left, Meadville, saying
.she was going to St. Louis, but no one
knows where. On the 20th of April, Sill
was taken to the penitentiary in Alleghe
ny and remained there until his pardon
arrived on Tuesday morning.
• The Inter-Ocean, of Chicago, esti
mates the number of negroes murdered
in the South since the close of the war at
nine thousand four hundred. We believe
that if every case could be known it would
double the number given. Thousands
have been killed and no report made of
,the murders. Is it not a fearful comment
. on the laxity of our laws that pone of the
murderers of those helpless blacks have
been brought to justice? They go un

on the situation in Louisiana, recently

suppose I am pretty cordially hated
.by a certain proscriptive class of South

My opinion iip thatille bnly true . sgjution
for Southern troubles is for the people to
accept: cordially laud in good faith all th - e
results of the' war, including thepmin
struction measures, the acts of Pongress,
negro suffing.e, &c., and live up to them

Iv Lurcx.—There is a poor boy in Rock
ingham county, Va., who works hard du
ring the summer to procure enough mon
ey to go to9chool in winter. Twenty dol
lars of this money ho loaned early in the
summer to a man and took his note for it.
The note was placed among a lot of old
papers, which were by mistake of some
member of the family sold to the rag man.
Unable to present the note, be could not
collect the money, and his prospects for a
winter's schooling were growing very faint.
when he received word from Mr. Foucke,
connected with the Antietam Paper Mill
near Hagerstown, that he found amongst
a lot of papers the identical note, with a
two dollar bill wrapped up in it. We can
imagine the joy of the poor boy.—E.r.
atgs—Mr. Henry C. Carey, a distinguish
ed political economist of the rag money
school, recently addressed a series of let
ters to Secretary Bristow for the financial
edification of that able officer of the Gov
ernment, and they are now put forth in
pamphlet form. According to the syn
opsis given by an admiring journal, Mr.
Carey briefly summarizes the financial
history, of the country during the last fif
teen or twenty years. He shows how the
rate of interest decreased and general
prosperity increased during the war peri
od, as a resul,k of plentiful currency, and
how when the war, with its,,destructive
and impoverishing action, was cver, and
the country had entered on a most prom•
isi ng era of weal th-getting, Secretary Mc-
Culloch'sf fatal manifesto declaring the
necessity of contracting the currency check
ed production, and struck a blow at all
industry and trade, thus ushering in the
era of distrust, !stringency and commer
cial paralysis, from which we are still suf
fering. He believes the only inflation we
have to fear is the dangerous accumula
tion of money in the city banks, and
particularly iu the !wilds of the Wall
street. speculators, as the result of an ar
bitrary and inflexible currency system.—
He thinks there is no more danger of the
people's absorbing and employing too ma
ny circulating notes than of their buying
and wearing ton many hats.
The account given of the causes of our
late panic seems to be wonderfully perspic
uous and exact,and that the great scarcity
of money is the cause of the continued
depression, L. probably 'somehow to be
seen'in the fact that banks in the South
west are retiring their circulation _and
that there is a plethora of money seeking
Ilse in all commercial centres. We do
not see it exactly, but Mr. Carey says he
does, and one .should, perhaps, accept on
trust the dictum of one whom Judge Kel
ley, in the financial debate of the last ses
sion of Congress, declared to be "the
most profound and original thinker that
God ever blessed a nation with.”--Baa.
ErAn ingenious but bold attempt to
start an insurance company by fraud and

and stifled. Some seven or eight-months
ago a number of men in Philadelphia
conceived the idea of raising counterfeit
bonds to the amount of $500,000,t0 depos
it with the State Controller, in accordance
with the insurance law of the State, and
upon that basis to issue policies and re
ceive premiums. They wormed them

able gentlemen and obtained their names
for their prospectus as decoys, and one of
the number hired a small room in Brook
lyn and commenced preparing and print
ing the counterfeit bonds. • As fast as
they were finished' they were deposited
with the Controller, but one being rather
less-skillfully executed than the others,
was pronounced spurious, and detectives
were instantly set to work, resulting in
the discovery of the plot. All the par
ties have been arrested.

UELOCKING THE BocK.s.—The great
_cost of silver and gold arises not so much
from thCir scarcity in the earth, as the
difficulty of extracting them from,their
stony combinations. Dr. J. C. Ayer, the
well known chemist of Massachusetts, has
cut this gordian knot. After having mer
ited and received the gratitude of half
mankind, by his remedies that cure their
diseases, he is now winning the other half,
by opening for them an easy road to the
exhaustless treasures of the hills. He
has discovered and published a chemical
process, -which, renders at little cost, the
hardest rocks and ores friable like chalk
so that the precious' metals are loosed
from their confinement, and easily gath
ered. Mines , too poor to pay, may be
worked at a profit now, and the yield of
rich mines is largely increassd, while the
cost of extracting the metals from the ore,
is diminished. Either is a great achieve
ment, to enrich mankind, or cure their
diseases. But we are informed our cele
brated countryman adheres to the latter,
as his specialty and chief ambition.—(Buf
