Hold Robbery of a Hank.
At half-past four o'clock in the afternoon
of the 30th ult., the cashier and clerk of the
First National Bank of Independency. ItIo. ;
were sitting by the stove near the back door
of the batik building, conversing, having
just closed the front door and windows pre

Suddenly the latch Orthia &mr must. and
two men entered side by*Pide, with pistols
in their bawls. One of thew said. as they
entered, in a low but very firm voice, "Not
word, men, or you will never see your fam
ilies again." The larger man of the two
held a pistol in each hand, nearly touching
the head of the two olliecri, while the other
proceeded to close the side windows and
pocket the cash. lie did this very deliber
ately, and after cleaning the vault, as he
thought, turned and ordered the officers to
enter the vault, which order they. of course
obeyed. The scoundrels then closed the
outer door of the vault and lett, locking the
back door of the building after them, taking
Loth the vault and door keys with them.—
The house and vault both being do* d. it
was some time before the prisoners could
make themselves heard. The clerk's wife,
who was up stairs in the batik building, be
coming impatient about Ler husband's delay
went to the back door two or three times.—
She at last prevailed on a gentleman to go
with her, and on reaching the door they
heard a noise inside, which proved to be the
two prisoners striking the door with a bank
seal that happened to be in the vault. The
alarm was then given, the door of the
building timed open, and the situation of
the cashier and clerk made known. The
cashier had a key at his residence belong
ing W the vault, which was quickly brought
and the door opened, to the great relief of
the pent-up prisoners, who
: was suffering
greatly from suffocation. The loss of the
bank is about !Jl,oooaudwithprivatefunds

robbers got about 17,000 altogether, about

Attempt to Break lato a Hank.
One night last week an attempt was made
by some scoundrels to break into the

bars at the cellar window were wrenched
off through which they effected an entrance
into the cellar. They then undertook to
undermine the I;mndation of the safe, and
lhiling in this they attempted to get up
through the hatchway, by boring out apiece
of the door, but Whilst at this they must
have been disturbed tin they absquatulated
