H [GHWITMI1 A HflfT r?n ?? ? corded a brutal outrage upon an unprotected frmale. on the Baltimore turnpike, by three men, and then thought the outrage waa committed by vagabond! migrating from city to city, who by chance met with th?ir unfortunate victims We now have reason to believe that a gang of despe radoes are Infesting the roads leading to and from the city, for the purpose of robbing pedes trians, and that if they are not speedily caught and punished, they will grow more bold in their atrocious acts. A poor cripple, named James C Sanford. was yesterday morning attacked, l>eaten, and robbed, about a mile and a half beyond the i first toll-gate. He came to the city and applied to the Mayor for a permit to enter the alms-house, I which was granted. He wn? about tbe bead and face, and from bis answers, which were untenable, ne being apparently de lirious, we judge his wounds were inflicted with a hatchet. Officer J F. King immediately pro ceeded to obtain information, which we hope will lead to the arrest and conviction of every villain who was concerned in this outrage It is the third of the kind which has occurred within a week. On Thursday afternoon a deaf and dumb man was walking along the same road towards Bladensburg. when he was attacked, knocked down and robbed, and very badly beaten. On mr evening a man slopped at the house of | Mr. John R Minor, one of the jurors at this term of the court, and being acquainted with him. asked a recommendation, saying that he wished to come to Washington Mr Minor refused to give it to him, knowing that he had been a re?i | dent of the city, and having aaked Mr. M if he had heard about tbe beating of the woman, it aroused bis suspicions, and l?i him to make oath yesterday morning before Justice Johnson in re gard to his suspicions, which led to the despatch of officer? King and Stewart to the locality where the outrages had been committed, armed with warrants Tor the arrest of the abovementioned in dividual and others who might be suspected of j haviug been engaged in the outrages.

Joseph Fugit, who ran away from the officer yesterday as he was being brought from the Jail to court to receive sentence for horse stealing, has probably made good his escape, as no efforts of the officers bad been able to discover his where about* up to a late hour last night. To-day ?Mr Hradley, for defense, in the re maining case of the I'nited States agt General Cullom, submitted a motion to quash the indict ment in said case, upon an agreed state of facts as t > the case between the counsel on both sides. He was arguing the motion when our report closed. ins cuich for rcaiTT.? Yesterday, after the pursuit of Fugltt bad proven to be successful, the marshal obtained tbe assistance of a number of tbe most expert detective and police officers, and began a srar<b of the place where Fugitt and bis friends were in the haoit of visiting Officers Allen and Wise, passing along a road where tbey knew be bad been within two minutes, met two girls, and Wise asked if they had seen a man of a certain description pan them, and they replied in tbe negative. Wise stopped and remarked to his companion "I wouldn't wonder if the d d rascal is listening to us now." Last night Wise, Allen, and Justice Donn went to a house where tbey suspected be would go, and searched tbe bouse for him. No objection was made to tbe search After which th?y learned from a friend who bad met Fugltt and talked with bim, that at tbe moment Wise and Allen spoke to tbe girls on tbe road, be was lying In a fence corner, within a few feet of the officer, and repeated to bis friend tbe words of Wise to his companion relative to Fugitt's proximity. It has been since ascertained that while tbe officers were searching the bouse Above mentioned,Fugltt wu in another near by, watching their movementa He came into the city to get meant to secure hit escape The detectives are atill of the opinion that they will get him, and are now on the trail of blm. though be baa left the city.
