[From the N Y. Evening Post .J Seven*! months since the Bank of New Brans wick wiu broken into and over $70,000 stolen from its vault*. The details of this audacious robbery have already been published: and after being traoked for a long time, and through many places, its perpetrators have at last been captured, and are now awaiting trial before tha Court of Assises in Nova Scotia. They are three in number, and their names are Phil Stanley, Jack Rand and Bell Smith. These three men apparently are none of your small, vulgar rascal*. They display the trophies of no lass than sixteen memorable achievement*, of which each of them boasts; and whether they exaggerate the importance and recklessness of these from a love of boasting, we will not stop to inquire. The leader of this trio is Phil Stanley, alias Phil ^andtori. who prides himself upon being one of the most artful villains in Christendom. Uu was born in England, and is over 32 years ?<ld. His manner is affable and quiet, yet he is * T*>ry devil in hardihood, and gifted with al most unparalleled finesse He has the eye of a lyux. the subtlety of a cat. the quick decision ef a consummate general, and a force of execu tion which sets all obstacles at defiance. He first became knownon thi-*continent in the pity ot Buffalo, where in a single iiight he com iu it ted threo burglaries. He was arrestod for the crime. tried- convictcd. and sentenced to nine months' imprisonment. Unfortunately. | his ecnteoee was soon after commuted, and. true to hid instincts,, he hastened to deserve an other. This fellow is aristocratic in hid trade. He entertains a hearty contempt for small rascali ties and aspires to great projects and achieve ments. Scarcely had he got out of prison, when he planned a grand cnterpriso against the Milton Bank of Dorchester: und one fine morning that institution missed $32,000. Hav ing succeeded in this great project, he carried on his operations In Albany. Rochester. Buffalo and Springfield; sometime# alone, sometimes with his associates. But in Buffalo the bird was caged the second time, the Grand Jury found a true bill of indictment, and he was sentenced Auburn Stato Prison for another period of nine years and nine months. In the meantime Phil had married the widow of a Jew, who kept an obscure hotel in the city of Albany When ho found himself a second time under the restraint of iron bars and heavy loeics. he set hi* genius to work to'devise the means of recovering his liberty. He drow up a fetition to the Governor of the State for his paidon. signed by all the employes of the pris on, m l having counterfeited the signature of th? Judge, sent it on to Governor Seymour. Hta excellency was ensnared by the trick; he promptly sent on an order for his release, aud in a tew days Phil found himself outside the prison walls. The fraud was afterwards dis covered. and officer* were dispatched to find the criminal, and after a long and fruitless search, they listened to the proposals of his wit'#, who agreed to discover his whereabouts upon certain conditions. The bargain being consuinmed. Phil got off with two years and six monthsconfinement This inadequate pun ishment only whetted his instincts, and gave bun new faith in his lucky star; and he soon after robbed ihe Windham County Bank of He next turned hi* thoughts upon Canada, aud went to Montreal, where he com mitted many robberies with impunity?among others one of a thousand dollars from the office of the Grand Trunk Railroad A police officer, getting a clue to bis proceedings, tracked hiin Buffalo, where he succeeded in capturing him He was locked up two or three months, and then 1 at off for want of sufficient evidence. After getting rid of thi* annoyance thus for tunately. he went to New York.'where his wife was then living Scarcely had he stepped out of the cars wuen this adorable creature de manded a fur mantilla. Could he refuse such a request to a loving angel who had turned aside the poisoned arrows of justico aimed at his devoted head ? The thing wa* not to be thought of. though Phil had not the fund*, be assured he was not the man to spoil his dignity by pilfering so petty a tuing To relieve him self of the embarrassment, he signalised the ni^h't of Lis visit to the metropolis by breaking into a atore and stealing a quantity of rich furs which he thought could not fail of satisfying the most extravagant wishes of his beloved But unfortunately for him. he hal not obtained the article ready made; he bad >nly taken the raw materials; and thougn the skins were magnificent, his wife upbraided him in no gen tle terms for this oversight. 4 They must do,'" said Phil; ?' they must be made up." They were accordingly sent to a furrier, where, as luck would have it, they were seen and recog nised by the lawful owner, and Phil was ar rested when he called for the article. " So it has often happened." philosophically remarkod poor Phil, on his way to the Tombs ; *thes? cursed baubles of women have often ruined great men.'' But he did not content himvrlf merely with giving utterance to the maxims of wisdom; but while on his way to that venerable penal institution he slipped from the officers, outstripped them in the race, escaped from the city, lied to Michigan, robbed the State Bank of $11,000; wont to Connecticut, plundered several jewelry stores in that State, rot.bed an Indiana exchange agent of a consid erable sum plundered several of the principal ?hoj>s. and joined Jack Rand and Bell Smith. The trio next attempted to rob moil com pany By means of false keys the rascals got into the company a sate, but to their ehagrin found the coders empty. For two or three nights they continued the experiment, but still f? :n 1 no money Eura^.d with his ill-success, Phil resolved not to have all this trouble for nothing Hn\ ing carefully examined the com pany s books and acquainted himself with their method of doing business he forged their name, and personating one of their employee", got it di*-?*tMt?>d and lett the city When the note l?e?*ame due. the unfortunate employee who?c name he had assumed, was tried for forgery and sentenced to Sing Sing for five years The ace the confederates went to Quebec. Their exploits in tuat city having alarmed the people and waked up the vigilauce of the offi cer*, they left 1 ?r >i >va Scotia. A few weeks after their arrival there, the Bank robbery of ?7.?.0<i0 was committed In tois atupenJoja affair, Phil employed all his devilish genius. His manner of proceeding is sometimes slow, but always sure With a bit of wax he took au impression of the outside <i'?or-look, ac l from this model they constructed a key. Another night the robbers entered the building and took impression* oi the locks of the drawers and vaults, and made other keys as i>efore ; and were now sure of success, it ia assertul that Phil has often devoted six months study to the plan of an enterprise, and when it promised largely, has not scrupled to cpend $J iHf t in maturing it He possesses great | overs of strategy and in vention At Auburn he made a key for secur ing the grates, and gave it to the jailor, who aold the secret to a house in New York. They got it patented, and have realised large profits 1 fro a iu sale. Ordinarily, Phil managed an affair and let j his confederates execute it But in Nova Sco tia he departed from this prudent custom ; aud to this negligeuee he owes his detection Jack Rand, oue of his accomplice*, was horn in New Hampshire, where he exercised the trade ef a locksmith He began his career of] crime with stealing ?)09. for which he suffered J two years i m prison me ut. Atter the expiration of his term, he figured In the mb?>erv of the Portsmouth Bmk. and received $7?.?*>0 as his share of the spoils. He J sent ? part of it to his father, who being found with of is in his possession, was arrested ' tor the crime Jack, not altogether forgetful [ of the obligations of a too. coaf mtd himself the guilty party to the p>lioe. He was impris oned. and his father set at liberty ; but the ras cal oiaJti his eseap* in about four month*. At Conuerd be was arrested for larcenv. He got oat ageiu; and in New Jersey this mouern Jack -ueppard committed a heavy wharf rob bcry. They caught and imprisoned him and for the third time he broke jail. He was, how ever. recaptured in Philadelphia. and sent back to N?w Jersey. where he was acquited in somo unexplained manner. Disgusted with the States, he went to Canada with Stanley, and the two traveled up and down the St Lawrence. Steamboats expresses, Ac., were the theatre of their operations. One time they attempted to steal a box containing $j(i,000 in gold du^t, but failed. Phil was arrested for the attempt, but was discharged for want of competent evidence. The last of this diabolical trio is Bell Smith, whom we may regard as the servant, or rather slave of tho other two. l?e does the most dan gerous and servile work, and receives the least PV A Sihollar SpiotTrs?In the little town of Dover, which is situated on tho Cumberland river, in Middle Tennessee, there lived, some time ago. an ecccntric and intemperate old bachelor by the name of Kingston. On one oc casion. when prostrated on nis bed by excess, and suffcriug acutely from those things and hor rors peculiar to his situation, he sent for one of hi* old boon companions to come and visit him. Shyrack, for that was the other's name, came duly into Kingston s room. " What's the matter, Kingston V " Shy rack, shut the door. 5 " Yes my dear fellow." "Lock it." " Eh ?" " Lock the door!" " Certainly, my dear boy." " Sliyrack, I'm going to kill myself!" 44 My dear fellow, let me enlreat you not to do it!" "I will." "No. no?oblige me. and don't." " Must do it!'' " Don't?it'll be the death of vou !'* Shyrack was quite cool aud jocose, little dreaming that so terrible an event was actually going to take place. Kingston had, as the last eccentric act of bis life, taken a chisel and mallet to bed with him, and now. with desperate resolve, he seized the extraordinary tool? of death, and in an instant dmve tho blade of his chisel into his breast. The hair roseupon Shyraek>head. and fright spread like a sheet of snow omer his face. ? Kingston! Kingston! my dear fellow?you d d rascal Kingston! do you want to have me hung? Hold on! don't you die till I call somebody!" Shyrack ran to the dorr an d called liko a mad man to some people across the street: ? Hallo! here! say! you. mister! all you stupid people ! make haste over here, or there will be a murder !" The people crowded into Kingston's bouse. 14 Don't die, Kingston! Don t chisel me that way ! Don't die till you tell tbeui who did it!" '? I did it myself." said Kingston, faintly. ?'Thefp. that'll do; now, my dear fellow, you may die." replied Shyrack, taking a long breath and wiping the perspiration from bis forehead. And King-ton did die, in that extraordinary manner, leaving his fate to be recorded as a sui cide. tha'. was almost a murder. Loris Napoleon at Cka^onr.? A l'aris correspondent, who has been amusing himself by visiting Chalons, to observe a grand review of Louis Napoleon's troops, says : Louis Napoleon recently reviewed, at Chalons his Imperial Ouard. a body ofm-irethan 20,000 men. of which nearly 6.000 ar& cavalry But this is merely the preliminary to the military establishment which is to bo founded there, which will consist, it is said, of SO.noo men. A permanent camp is to be instituted, and a circus is to be built for tho amusemer.t of the soldiers and the neighborhood. The Emperor himself resides in a pavilion pitched upen a hill, lie is said to lead a complete camj>life. From noon to three o'clock, during tbe exercises his Ma jesty is on horseback ; the remainder of the day he m engaged in his Cabinet, und up to this time he has taken no walking exercise to any dis tance At half-past six his Majesty dines, covers being laid for thirty. There are about one hun dred and fifty superior officers in tho camp, but they are eath invited in their turn. Afterdin ner. some whist tables are formed, but the party does not remain late, as the Emperor retires to rest at an early hour. Every morning he is engaged in his Cabinet, and the telef.-aph is actively at work. In addition to tho uscal al lowance. the troops receivo a ration of wine t very day, so that they lead a very pleas:r.nt lit'c at the camp. The Emperor has become a milita ry organizer; under his directions the soldiers of France have learned a rapidity of movement previously unknown to infantry. The common soldiers are trained to run for considerable dis tances. side by side with the cavalry. Tt is said that all arms?infantry, cav airy, and artillery? are to move at one and the same word of com mand. V\ e wore not long since much amused by a couple of Hoosier girls who camc on board the steamer . at the little town of Mount Ver non. Ind. They had evidently never been a thousand miles from home, and were making their first trip on a steamboat. The elder one was exceedingly talkative, and perfectly free and unconcerned, without regard to the many eyes that were scanning her movements. The other wasot theopposite turn of mind, inclining tobashbulnes*. At dinner ourladies were hon ored with a seat at tho head of the table, and the elderone. with her usual independence, cut her bread into small pieccs, and with her fork reached over and enrolled each mouthful in the nice dressing on a plate of beefsteak before her The passengers preserved their gravity during the operation, by dintof great eftort Perceiving that her sister was very forward in helping her selt she turned round to her and exclaimed loud enough to be heard by half the table?-\Sai, dip into thf grary?dud pnv* as murk ax any on cm This followed by a general roar, in which the captain led off. The girls arrived at their place of destination before supper, and wheu they left the boat, all hands gave three cheers for the girls of the liooaier State. Does Voir Mother Know You're Oct ?? A voung lady onee had a beau. One evening said beau Wiis anxious to enjoy some private conversation with bis charmer, out there being two children in the room, rather marred his withes. The gentleman looked to see them sent to bed, but he was disappointed. The youngest child, a little boy about three years old. slept with the young lady, and had no idea of retiring without his bed-fellow. Stretching his chubby length upon the car pet. he watched the twain with resolutely wide awake eyes until the bell rung for nine, when, patieuce becoming exhausted, lie raised his lit tle head and said to the visitor: 41 Nine o'clock is bedtime. Don't you think your mother wants you now !" This was one of the tallest hints the young gentleman ever received in a civil kind of a way. and the mingling of embarrassment. vex ation and mirth, produced by it?which was, indeed, as good as a kick?wan lunny in the extreme. ?'
