GOLD ROBB EBS Among the eminent qualities of the " din tingufchfd AnglrvSnxon rsce. none is more frequently boested of then its bold, patient per/ejering proiecution of an enterprise in which it engages. If we are indebted to this noble race for our language, literature. end wonderfnl progress in civiliration, it al-o. regret to confess. produces the boldest burg lirs. the biggest rogues. an I the most patient persevering scoundrels. New fashions in dre^s Come fr?tu Paris; new father* in crime from the greit capital of the Anglo Saxon-. The gay French invent crinoline, the prarticul Knglit-h invent garroting. The Anglo-Saxon /v a great race, and in illustration of one phnso of its' greatness, we copy from a recent number of its chief organ, the London Times the following illustrative tale, which doe.* it as much credit, in a way. us any of the "granJ larceny" operations of the Last Tndia Coin pany ? The bullion robbery on the Southeastern Kail way w;ll certainly take a high rank in the romance of crime The thef: which Agar I'lercc, Burgess, and Tester planned and eruu pleted was no ordinary crime Well might the counsel for the prosecution declare that it was lamenable to see such skill, dexterity, and perseverance employed in the execution of a criminal design. On the night of Muy li, gold to the value of ?12 000 was stolen from the van of a train on the Southeastern Rnilwiy, fce'wecr London and Folkestone The bojes were weighed in London, and again at Boulogne At the second place the weight, as it was rub ?equcnt!y discovered. Jeered from tbe weight in London The weight in Paris corresponded ! Hi.ij the weight in Boulogne : consequently the boxer must have been tampered vrith be tween London and Boulogne, or. as it im possible to touch them while in !he boat, be tween London and Folkestone. When the boxes weroopened. l>a?s of shot were found in the place of gold Of course, the surprise was great, and tho search after the offender" earnest But, whatever m?y be the rkill cf detectives, we know from sad experience that tho criminal world is more than equal to them in craft. For sixteen months the pursuit was in vain, and the robbery was well nigh forgot ten, when an unexpected revelation threw light on the matter. A man named Fdward Agar was convicted in October, 1855, of uttering a forged check ar.d sentenced to be transported for lifo This man some time since 6tated to the authorities that he could give information respecting the great gold robbery of 1^5j. On being ques tionei, ho announced himself as one of the perpetrators, and named as his accomplice? I terce, formerly in tho service of the >outh eastern Company, Burses, a guard; aid Tc.-ter, a c.erk in the traffic depMrtmont Agar is tl years of age. and ha.', by hi? own confes sion, lived by crime, for a term of from It to JO years, lli* evidence is, that Pier-e firs' suggc ted tho scheme, and that he him*e1f thought it impracticable. Piorce said he bo li*vcd he could obtain impressions cf the keys of the Chubb s lcek< by which tee iron safes were secured, and Agar then answered that if that could be done he thought the thing might bo effected. b Now C' roes the execution of the plan Time, ski!i and capital arc all at the di?|>ofa! of tbe planners. Pierce and Agar go down to Folk ?tone as casual visitors for tho benefit of ?ca bathir.g They take Icdgings ant empby themselves in observing tbe arrival of the ti dal tcrvice trains, and tbe delivery of the lug gage from the train* to the boa's." This is in Mny, 1S51, twelvo mouths before the actual commission of the robbery?so long a time can modern depredators afford to spend on their preparations. Tbey went down daily to the pier, n* if to enjoy the fresh air, but their con stant observation of tho trains and the Nation ar< u?ed suspicion, aud they left, but not be foro they had discovered " what Chapman, wl:o had the custody of the key of the iron safe, did when the trains arrived and the lug gage wa< removed to tbe boats." By the^e meaLs it was ascertained where tho key was kept, tho impression of which it was desiralle to obtain But to know where the key was kept, and tAobtain j occasion of it were very different flings, and Agar, according to his own story, was much disheartened Notso Piorce Pierce knew a young man named Tester, who was in the office cf the superintendent of traffic, and Tcs'tr could get possession of the keys for them However, time rrll3on, and wo are in August, when Pierce d;:.overs that the locks are o be altered and that the new keys will be in Tester's hands. Tetter was the clerk who corresponded with Mr Chubb on the sub | jet. and by his means the impression of a key which opened one lock of encb box was ob tained. But. as each box had two locks it wjs necessary to obtain th<? impression of another key. nnd the following device was adopted : Agar was in possession of no less a sum than i-'i IM;0. It was arranged that a box of bullion of the value of i.200 should be con veyed iu the iran safe in the usual way. and that it should be delivered to him uaderthe name of Archer. Agar goes for the box. and it is delivered to him by Chapman, who opens the safe with a key which he takes from a ' cunboard. Thus Agar learns where the sec. ond key is kept. Now. how are they to ob taia an impression of the key * Two "months have elapsed since tbey got the impression of No 1 ; this is October, an l they are still with out No. 2 But they are net disheartened. Pierce and Agar go down to Dover aud put up at Dover Castle ; they walk over to Folkes tonp, and arrive just when the train is coming in In the confusion of an arrival the attend ants leave the office for a lew minutes. Pierce goes boldly in, opens the cupboard which contains tho key of the sale, and hands it to A?;ar. who takes an impression and then re p aces it 'Jhtis five months after their recon uoissance at Folkestone they have surmounted the first difficulty which suggested itself to the reflectiiig mind Agar?they have obtained wax impressions of the keys. Kverything else remains to be done. Tho next thing, of course, was to make keys from the Impressions For that purpose lodgings are taken in Lambeth and Kenning ton. Pierce disguises himself in a black wig, and ti e next two months are spent iu filing keys. When the keys are completed to a prob ata similarity with the master pieces of Chubb?no ea*y task, it would seem, for two inexpert operators with common files?it was neoesaary to try them. A^ar went down sev eral times in the ran with Burgess, the guard. They did not fit at first, but they fitted more nearly every time he wcut Atlatt they fitted completely, and the deed was resolved on. Of oourse, after nearly a year's labor, it was not worth their while te fly at any paltry game they would wait until a large sum was to be sent Two chests would hold about ?12 000, aud they heard that ?12 000 was shortly to be sent. They then buy shot tc replace the gold. Agar and Pierce are admitted into the van by Burgess, and on the 15th of Mav, 1H56, twelve months after the deed was planned, th? boxes of Messrr. Spielmann. Bult k Abell are securely rifled Nineteen months after the crime is commit ted, and more than two years and a half after it is planned, justice has overtaken the delin quents. Their crime is chiefly interesting oi account of the ingenuity employed ; but its most alarming feature is that men so deter mined and so skilful should be possessed of tbe means of subsistence for bo long a time. Agar, with his ?6,000; Pierce, with his house at Kilburn, all of them driving about for a year in cabs, and journeying up and down the South Eastern line witu first olass tickets form a picture of criminal prosperity whieh he had hardly looked for With all this, how ever, and even with the Trait* of their success is fall poweeeion, there was among them that element of insecurity on which, wilh such adroit thieves, honest men have principally to depend Agar, pursuing the career of crime which he describes himself m having deliber ately adopted, had been at last detected ; te had invested the proceeds of his many crime# for the benefit of a woman whom he seems to bave loved with all th? fondness of which such a man was capable. Pierce was his trustee, and Pierce, like a true thief, betray el his tru?t The woman was left destitute, and her paramour, the hardened felon whom no scruple* of e-nacicnee would bare moved, denounced the half-forgotten robbery from his cell at Portland None of our readers will fail to sympathise with the manly indignation with which Baron Martin denounced the vil lany of Pierce, or to share his regret that the sentence of the law falls lightest on the basest of the villains hut it is to this very bssenees. to the impossibility, as it would seem, of maibtaiuing perfect complicity in guilt, that the public has most to trust for the detection of such accomplished scoundrel:1 at those who were convicted yesterday. A Bkmuani* Brxkcuorous.?A letter from Washington. in the '? Independance Beige,'* written in the latter part of December, pre sents a not very flattering picture of the na tional capital. We ^ive a portion of it: " Here I 3m in this city, pompously called the capital of the United states It is the Versailles of this country, New York being the Pari?; bu: I reek in vain for a park and a cliatteau. People speak of the cabinet of Versailles: they speak in like manner of the cabinet of Washington. What an illuatrions name for so poor a borough ! To tell the truth there is only one street in this capital of the most vast of republics This is Pennsylvania avenue, longer than it is beautiful, whioh commences at the Capitol, the seat of Con gress, and ends at the White House, the resi dent or the President "Th is grnnd street, which is thronged by the most heterogeneous crowd that can be im agined, reminds me of the great street of Hom bourg, the bathing place, at the season when the waters are most sought. The capital is the Kursaat of Hombourg At both the same god is adored?Piutus. Instead c.f the green carpet. I find here lobbies, which are filled with s licitcrs and intriguers of every age and both sexes, from all quarters of the Union, seeking some a grant, some aoommission, souie an office. 6ome a pension ; this one working to secure the pa?sage of a bill, that one to can** it to miscarry. I prefer Houibourg to Wash ington. " A very degraded creature is a daughter of joy ; still more degraded, morally speaking, i? a sollritress. Experience having demon strated that a solicitress is worth three solici tors, the most delicate negotiations are con fided to the fair sex Fach session attract* to Washington a cloud of these birds of pas sage, or rather of prey, who come to percn in the hotels the most frequented by members of Congress If the presence of a certain mem ber is aW'lutely necessary for th? passage of a particular bill, one of tbe.?e birds of fine !>luuiage is dispatched to him, and the mem ber arrivos with hit vote It is necessary, on the contrary, to prevent a member from ar rivirg in time to vote, another bird charges herself with retaining him at her lodgings, it costs, well understood,only a smile, or some sweet word?. These fair solicitors are of no certain age ; the youngest do not exert as much power an the most aged ; hut widows occupy the first rank, iiow numerous are the** widows?how seductive. ' It is reserved to the other sex to rough hew affairs and conduct them to the print where their management requites a more dcl icate touch. You find amcx.g these lobby agents, as they are called, editors of influen ? tial journals, constructors of railroads, oon tractors, presidents of companies, and espe cially lawyers "The stranger who issues from the dange rous lobbies of which I have spoken, and en ters the Senate or Chamber of Representatives is not tempted, I assure you. to exclaim, like s certain provincial of antiquity, at the aspect of the Roman legislators, that he believed himself in the pre.^ence of a Senate of Kings.
