THE DOUBLE ROBBERY.
Toward tlio close of tho last century
Northumberland and the border were ter
ribly inifestod by those to the bucolic
mind particularly obnoxious specimens
1 ot tlio gums ttiici Known as "rivers, or
"lifters of cattle."
I Almost all the rascals who followed
thU not uulucrative profession trusted
chiefly to mere bruto foreo to carry out!
I successfully their nefarious schemes. J
I There was, however, one exception to tlm
rulo to bo found in the person of a celebra
ted frccbotcr, known as "Dickey of Kings
! wood." This worthy openly expressed
' his disapprobation of his rivals' vulgar
. niodo of following their profession, and ro
! psatedly boasted that ho could achicvo
1 twice as much by his cunning as they could
j by their brute force. Nor was this asser
tion of his empty boasting far from it.
I In a few years' time Dickey's uame bo-
I . 1 . . l ,1 - !.l -
camo tlio terror 01 111c country btuc. io
farmor'felt sccuro when ho retired to rest
at night that his cattle might not have
vanished beforo morning. So cleverly,
moreover, wero all Dickey's enterprises
couductcd, that no man could ever succeed
in making personal acquaintance with him,
He openly set justico at defiance, and
laughed at the fertile efforts of law topun-
!d. I.:.,. lf,vlifina linvrrivnr. f.lifi host wav

to illustrato tho adroitness and good luck
which characterized all Dickoy's proceed
ings will bo for mo to relato tho story of
ono of his csploits.
It nppcars, then, that during tho course
of his peregrin ations through Northumb
erland, ono fine afternoon, Dickey's eyes
were gladcncd by tho sight of a pair of
fine oxen winch were quietly graz-ng in a
field near Denton Hum, a villago distant
thrco miles from New Castle.
Determined to possess them, Dickoy
hung about tho place till nightfall, watch
ed whoro tho animals were driven to, and,
his usual good fortuno assisting him spec,
dily secured his prize. IIo also contrived
by tho exoroiso of his accustomed cunning,
fr, l Knob traces behind him as made
tho owner of tho oxen certain that tho free
booor had made off toward 1 weed.
Thither ho accordingly proceeded in hot
haste. In tlio intcrinen, however, Dickey
had lost no tinio in "niakiug tracks' to
ward tho west country, and so expeditious
woro his movements that in n fchort time
ho reached Lauorcost, iu Cumberland.
Hero ho fell in with an eld farmer on
horseback, who, being delighted with tho
appearance of tho oxou, forthwith pur
Dickoy was of cour3o rejoiced at getting
rid so pleasantly of a chargo whioh could
not fail to bo troublesome nay, possibly
dangerous to him longer to retain. Tho
farmer moreover, was mounted upon a
splendid marc, which Dickoy, with his pe
culiar ideas on tho subject of vuum and
tcum at onco resolved by fair means or
foul, to secure IIo thcrcforo willingly
acceptod the farmer's hospitable invitation
to accompany him to his houso in order
that they might "crack" a bottlo of good
who in honor to their baigain. Presently
Dickey inquired of tho farmer if ho would
sell him his maro ?
"Sell you my marol" exclaimed his
host all aghast at his proposition. "Sell
my marc? No, tlinok you,' Why thoro's
not her equal in tho whole north country!"
''I do not noubt it Mr. Mustgravo," re
sponded Dickoy, "and from what I saw
of her paces this morning, I am quito of
your opinion that there's not her equal
within a hundred miles of us : 13ut," add
ed tho obscquions Dick, "siuco you will
not sell her, I can only wish you a long
life and good health to onjoy her."
This sentiment was of course duly hon
ored iu a bumper.
"I hope, Mr. Musgravc,'' next observed
Dickey, "that you keep a close look-out
after your stable door, becauso now, where
that rascal Dickoy of Kingswood is allow
ed to be at liberty, a man oannot bo sure
but that any Quo morning he may lind his
"Stable 1 ha 1 ha!" chuckled tho far
mer. "I think," ho continued, "that
Dicky Kingswood would find it rather dif
ficult to steal my maro from tho stablo 1"
"Indeed! where may her stable bo sit
uated ?" inquired Dickey.
"Her stable ! bless you sir!" her stablo
is in my bed-room 1 I'm a bachelor, and
so I fasten her to my bed post. I have
had a manger put up for hor in tho room,
and no music is so pleasant to mo as to
hoar her grinding hercoru all night by my
Dickey was astouaded as well he
might be at such unheard-of precautions;
but disguising his astonishment, hecoutcn
ted himself by simply expressing himself
to the farmer his hearty approval of tho
means he adopted to secure tho safety of
"I suppose you have a good look on
your bedroom door?" was Dickey's next
"Come with mo, and I will show it you,'
replied the unsuspecting farmer.
This was just what Dickoy wanted.
lie examined tho lock carefully, and soon
satisfied himself that ho could pick it with
out muoh difficulty. He, however, de
clared to Musgravo that it was just tho
right sort of a lock ; "it couldn't have been
bettor iu fact, it was quito non-pickablo,"
Again tho cup passed round, and after
draining a bumper to their 'next merry
meeting' Dickey departed .
The old farmer, after his guest's leave
taking had been completed, carefully went
the rounds of his house, locking doors and
closing wiudows with all duo prccautiou.
IIo then, as usual, tied his horse to her ac
customed post, retired and was soon lulled
to sleep by tho sound of his favorito grind
ing her corn.
So tho night woro away. Presently,
as tho first gray streaks of day began to
appear, Mr. Musgravo awoke, and fscliug
very cold ami chilly, looked round to as
certain tho cause. To his astonishment,
ho found that all tho coverlets had boon
taken off his bed and that his blankets had
been spread out upon the floor. Jor what
nurnoso? thought Mr. Musirravc. Was
l l a w
he tho victim of somo borriblo nightmare,
or was ho really awake f Mechanically
his eye glanced to tho spot whero his maro
should have been. She was not there !
Sho was gone stolen 5 During tho night
some daring thiof had broken into tho farm
house, had picked the lock on tho door of
tho bed-room, bad spread tho blankets
over the floor, to that tho hoofs of tho
maro should mako no uoiso, and had thus
triumphantly made off with his prizo;
Of course Mr. Musgravo roused his
household, and commenced a vigorous
search after the thief. It was useless.
Tho dcspoilcr had left uo .traco bchiud
him, and so Mr. Musgravo was obligod to
return homo disconsolate, and to ooiitont
himself with venting curses neither few
nor far bqtwcen-r-upou tho thief.
In tho moautiinu our friend Dickoy
for his was tho deed was comfortably
mouutod upon Mr. Musgravo's favorito
mare, aud was every moment increasing
tho distance botweeu her outraged owner
and himself. So great wus iho speed of
tho maro, that by tho break of day Dickoy
folt himself secure from pursuit. IIo had
directed his steps to the eastward, and
whilo crossing Haltwhistlo Fell, whom
should ho encounter but tho vcritab'.o ow
ner of tho oxen ho had stolen two or thrco
days before, nnd had just sold to Mr. Mus
Dickoy know tho owner of tho oxen
well, but, luckily for tho fresbooter, that
injured individual did not know him. IIo
thoroforc accosted Dickoy, and inqnircd if
ho had seen any oxen in tho courso of his
travels similar to thoso ho describod him
self to Dick as being iu search of.
"Why to bo suro I havo !" replied Dick
ey; "with tho very samo marks as you
ili.Kprilwrl . rn-nmis in Tr. Al na nvn inu I
fc....b ... fa' '
fields at Jjancrcost, only yesterday. 1
was rather struck," ho continued, "by
their appearance, aud learned, on inquiry,
from ono of his sorvauts, that Mr. Mus
gravo had purchased them just yesterday.
Undoubtedly tho oxen are yours. 1 would
ndviio you to go to Lancrcost at once and
"Certainly I will," replied tho other.
"Hut I am tired with hard walkiug, and it
is a long way to Lanercost. I sco you
rido a good beast. Will you sell her f "
After sonto hard bargaining, terms were
agreed upon, thepurchase money was paid
down on the spot, and Dickey and tho far
mer seporatcd ; tho farmer to seek his sto
len oxen, actually from tho very owner of
the stolen maro ho was himself riding,
whilo Dickey proceeded "whero ho listed."
Tho next daytho fanner reached Lan
orcost and at onco recognized his own ox
on grazing in tho field. IIo forthwith rode
up to an elderly man standing near, whom
ho judged to be tho owner of the field, and
'I say, friend, thoso aro my oxen in
your field ! How may you have come by
"And I'll be hanged replied tho other
(after taking a long, astonished look at the
on which his questioner was mounted,) ''if
that's not my maro you ate riding ! Ilow
may you have come by her, pray ?"
Each ot course described the person
from whom they had respectively pur
chased the oxen and the maro ; and when
this was done, they discovered tliey had
indeed been "sold'1 by a rogue of no com
So laughable did the joke appear oven
to those who had to ''pay tho piper" in tho
affair that neither party could prevent
breaking out in a peal of merriment when
tho particulars were fully disclosed.
It was now clear that tho only way to
fettle- tho affair was for each party to take
back his own property. Muravc was of
course overjoyed at tho recovery of hisfa
vorito mare and the Denton Durn farmer
benig equally delighted at the recovery of
Ins oxen, it fell out tuat, m tho general
burst of rejoicing, Dickey was allowed to
quietly pocket the sale money of both mare
Whethor Dick ultimately camo to an
untimely end, or whether ho reformed his
ways, and died, duly "shrived," in his own
bed, history tcllcth cot.
Certain it is howcAor, that to this day
his deeds aro "household words" in many
parts of Northumberland, and tho nientiou
of his namo among tho peasantry is con
sidered synonymous wih "cuteucss.

nio?t vilo Abolition sheet of your town,
hod long since, I noticed that some sap
head, whoo intellect to judgo by his wri
ting, must bo very limited, has taken a
position in defense of Mr. 15. A. Sharretts,
against an urticlo iu tho iSVr, that was
written by a Piahingcreoker which was
perused by him to havo been made against
Mr. S. J havo giveu some comments on
it for which if you permit space in the
columns of your valuable paper, may 6how
to thoso who road, tho narrow contracted
mind it cmiuntcd from,
iXow, f-iuco that article in tho Star, was
not personal and sinco there wero othir
addresses made uear tho town of Itohrs
burg by different persons what roason
more had this friend to Ministers as ho
styles himself to tako offense and to seek
vengeauco through tho Alrtcan j1UI, tUo
Negro's dwelling place thau any other per-
sou. This friend to Ministers says ho
would not havo written in opposition to
(I1U V IdllinguruuKur Uiiu it 11 uo uuuu iur iuu
injury it might havo done Mr. B., whero
ho was not known. Hero bis miud was
too limited, for siuco that urticlo in tho
Stur was not personal how could it havo
dono him harm whero ho was not known 1
Hut you know whon a dog is hurt it howls.
would hero advice "long-uoso" to keep
his fly-trap chut hereafter. J rcitoruto
tho assertions that wero mado in that ur
ticlo regarding that disunion speech rufcruil
to by tho Pishingerc,olver, and iu eo doing
express the sentiment of half of his heat
ers, whethor it was au address mado by
Mr. Sharrctts or any other person that it
was a disunion, ineonsUtuut and contra
dictory speech. And all such haranguos
ought to bo donouueed by every loyal por
son. Such r-pceches mado by such imn
throughout the froo Slates wilh the aid of
tho Abolition Press, such us tho IU publican
havo been the means of bringing our onoo
nrojiiorous and happy country into the
deplorable conditiou it is in at present,
1 aud yet they olaim to bo loyal. Pulse.

The following, from a correspondent, is
sensible and sharp, a littlo too sharp, wo
suspect, on G ovcrnor Curtiu. Whilo wo
havo no doubt of tho existence of tho abu
ses spoken of, wo aro reluctant to beliovo
that they woro winked at by, or oven
known to, the Governor.
To the Editor ef the mia. leering Journal!
Under the head of "Tho Draft and tho
Exempts," is given tho report of a largo
meeting in Spring Garden, the meeting
being of thrco months' volunteers, who
claim exemption from being subject to tho
"Draft." A member stated that it waa
apparent that eonipotent military mon aro
obliged to po without a command, whilo
prclerenco is given to men ignorant of mil
itary duties ; that competent persons who
had gone to Ilarrisburg, had been ignored

understand that if thoy de.ircd to bo com

I will stato that I addrcjscd, by Icttor
Governor Curtiu, two or thrco times, ofl'or-
inT 111V services to orrranisn n rnirimont
Lbrigade, of volunteers. I offered to equip,
in, my own expenses, a regiment ol cavalry.
I received harillv n rnnrtni.ua ronlv uo,.!,,,.

itary instruction and to bo organised into
regiments, inecoinpauy ofliccrs, many
of them, were enabled to raiso companies
by having to pay whipper.i in or commis
sion brolceis, who had the back stairs entre
or negotiated with the magnates at so much
cash for caoh sheepskin which authorized
strops and cockfoathcrs to bo mounted ;
for a consideration of from one hundrod to
live hundred dollars, paid for lieutcnan
ci?s and oaptaincics, and to a thousand or
moro for chaplains, surgeons, majors, lieut
enant colonel aud coloneloioa.
When theso wero given, then the com
panies wero organized into regiments, if
tho men so appointed could not hand over
tho cash cr bonus, they agreed to pass
over to tho manager their orders or
mouthly pay accounts for tho purohaso
money. Many of tho officers, strapped
and feathered on trust by the tailors have
been working, as tliey say in tho army,
for a dead horse, ever sinco, as tho pur
ohaso of their commissions absorbed from
two to five months, pay and emoluments.
Siuch traasactions every ri ht minded man
would say aro infamous. Thojo who ex
acted such commissions aro a disgrace to
tho position they hold, and only such per
sons as aro insensible to common solf
respect, and totally unfit to bo placed iu
positions requiring educated minds, and
experienced, if nossihln. In pni nr nnm
maun soiuiers iu war, would be guilty of

All tho miserablo business would Ii.ivm
bneTi avoided, at lean, tho corruption of it
and most of the disasters that havo fallen
upon our gallant volunteers, had a Military
iu.u-u ueeu oruercu by tuo Secretary of
War, of two recul ar ai'mv ofTlnors fnl.-nn
from tho list of roiirod officers, to attend at
nxcu places ot r ndczvous in tho several
States, and examine tho fin Id nffli-nra nml
captains as to oapacity. Of courso, tho
ijoaru wouiu not nave examined them upon
enj-incerinc noliov. fortifications, nr m-nnd
tactics. They would havo seen at onco
wneuier tuero was any promise in an indi
vidual who annliod to bo a Ilnlnnnl. nfhis
fitness, or whether ho had porcoption or
adaptibility. Governor f'urtin ndoptod
tho plan best suited his admirors in filling
their pockets, that ho might strengthen hid
iiiuna'uvres to uo rc-eicetctt, not caring
whether tho self-sacrifioing and gallant
volunteers were swindlerl by shoddy vest
ments, or commanded by ignorant and
presumptuous Jaks. When Ihn nnnnln nnn

tato to navo it removed, und so moto it be.
