Statesman, hasividence that the Brother hood of Thieves, the existence of which ' was proven on a recent trial for burglary, i in Lake County, Ohio, extends over eve- j ry State in the Union. He says : ; iWe are aware of the existence of said societv, bv the confession of one of its lor sucn a Drotnernoou. ne stated that i ti,mr wwo Vmnrlnrl tnemthor fnr mlliarr i "iw iiwv --,v,v. vwii, , , " ' ; theft, counterfeiting and murder, and to j protect each other from the fangs of the ! law, by being witnesses for each other, j and getting on juries when they could. 1 Death, he said, was the penalty of any ! betrayal of their secrets or plans, or ot , any of the brotherhood, or of any infidtl ity to their secret obligations, He further states that this societv is extended into every State in the Union has branches and high officers in all tho States that its members were numerous and respectable, many of them occupying important stations: and, Having a wide influence, Some are members of churches and church officers, and attend to the ' forms of religion, such as asking a bless ! ing at the table, and attending to family worship. These statements were made in confidence under circumstances calcu lated to leave little or no doubt of their truth. The name of this humble penitent confessor dare not be given, as he would certainly be put to death if his confession should come to the knowledge of thti brotherhood. There can be no doubt of the existence of this society, and it is a fearful state of things, and shows to what uses secrecv can be put. To have secret oath-bound and banded robbers, thieves and murder ers mixed up with the community and entering into families and spying out all our precious things, and at the same time praying with us and going to the A. -i stactred communion, is truly a horrible state of society.
