Several months since, the Bank of New Brunswick was broken into and over seven ty thousand dollars stolon from its vaults. The details of this audaciou.s robbery have already been published ; and after being tracked for a long time, and through many places, its perpetrators have at last been captured, and are now awaiting trial before the Court of Assizes in Nova Scotia. They are three in number, and their names are Pliil Stanley, Jack Rand a>id Bell Smith. These three men, apparently, are none of your small, vulgar rascals. They dis play the trophies of no less than 'sixteen memorable achievements, 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 Sandford, who prides himself upon being one of the most artful villians in Christendom. He was born in England, and is over thirty-two years old. His manner is affable and quiet, yet he is a very devil in hardihood, and gifted with almost unparalleled finesse. He has the eye of a lynx, the subtlety of a cat, the quick decis ion of a consummate general, and a force of execution which sets all obstacles at defi ance. He first became known on this continent in the city of Buffalo, where in a single night he committed three burglaries. He wa.s arrested for the crime, tried, convicted and senten.sed to nine years and nine months’ imprisonment. Unfortunately, his sentence was soon after commuted, and, true to his instincts, he hastened to deserve another. This fellow is aristocratic in bis trade. He entertains a hearty contempt for small rascalities, and aspires to great projects and achievements. Scarcely had he got out of prison when he planned a grand en terprise against the Milton Bank, at Dor- cester ; and one fine morning that institu tion missed $32,000. Having succeeded in this gr^at pn»ject, he carrii^d on his opera tions in Albany. Rochester, Buffalo and Springfield; sometimes alone, and some times with his associates. But in Buffalo the bird was caged the second time ; the A (/"• If?" Jru'in's Corner. C'oDiditioii Powiiei’N.

C-, ) October 23th, 1857. ^ Dk.\r Sir:—I have been requested to have the following statements published in your paper, in relation to the Scarlet Fever. Some years ago I /ead a publication in your paper from a gentleman in South Carolina, recommending as a cure for scar let fever. Jalap as a purge, and red pepper tea as a drink, stating that under that treatment he had managed a family of 38 children, with the loss of one. A short time afterwards the disea.se came into my neighborhood, and in my family. I used the remedy successfully with afcout IU children. It is now in my family and neighborhood. I have had two of the worst cases I have ever s?en in my family or neighborhood!— deranged to a considerable extent. I used the same remedy (though it took repeated doses of the Jalap to operate on the bowel.') as successfully as ever. The above two eases have shed tlie entire skin, even to sidtfs of the feet. In some cases the diseare yields by taking one dose of Jalap. The bowels thould iu all cases be well evacu ated, and the tea drank for several days. Yours, Respectfully, SILAS I). SHARPE. N. B.

The bargain being consumated, Phil got off with two years and six months confinement. This inadequate punishment only whetted his instincts, and gave him new faith in his lucky star; and he soon after robbed the Windham county Bank of $23,000. He next turned his thoughts upon Canada, and went to Montreal, where he committed many robberies with impunity, among others one of a thousand dollars from the office of the Grand Trunk Rail road. A police oflieer, getting a clue to his proceedings, tracked him to Baffalo, where he succeeded in capturing him. Ho was locked up for two or three months, and then let off for want of sufficient evidence. After getting rid of this annoyance thus fortunately, he went to New York, where his wife was then living. Scarcely had he stepped cut of the cars when this adora* ble creature demanded a fur mantilla. Could he refuse such a request to a loving angel who had turned aside the prisoned arrows of justice, aimed at his devoted head ?

I outstripped them in the race, escaped from the city, fled to Michigan, robbed the State Bank of $1L000; went to Connecticut, plundered f»everal jewelry stores in that State, robbed an Indiana exchange agent of a considerable sum, plundered several of the principal shops, and joined Jack Rand and Bell Smith. The trio next at tempted to rob the oil company. By means of false keys the ra.«cals got into the com pany’s safe, but to their chagrin found the coffers empty. For two or three oights ’ they continued the experiment but still j found no money. Enraged with ill success Phil resolved not to have all this tnnible for nothing. Having carefully examined the ; company’s books and acquainted himeelf! with their method of doing business, he | forged their name and personating one of their employees, got it discounted and left the city. When the note became due, the unfortunate employee whose name he had assumed, was tried for forgery and sen tenced to Sing Sing for five years. Thence the confederates went to Quebec. Their exploits in that city having alarmed the people and waked up the vigilance of the officers, they left for Nova Scotia. A few weeks after their arrival there, the Bank robbery of $75,000 was commit ted. In this stupendous affair, Phil em ployed all his devilish genius. His manner of proceeding is sometime slow, but always sure. With a bit of wax he took an im pression of the outside door lock, and from •, this model they constructed a ke}’. An- j other night the robbers entered the build- Mig, and took impressions of the locks of the drawers and vaults, and made other keys as before; and were sure of success. It is asserted that Phil hud often devoted six months study to the [dan of an enter prise, and when it promised largely, has not scrupled to spend $i,000 in maturing it. He possesses great powers of strategy and invention. At Auburn he made a key for securing the grates, and gave it to the jailor, who sold the secret to a house in New York. Tliey got it patented, and hav« realized large profits from its sale. Ordinarily, Phil managed an affair and let his confederates execute it. But iu Nova Scotia he departed from this prudent custom ; and to this negligence he owes his detection. Jack Rand, one of his accomplices was born in New Hampshire, where he exercis- fO tlio trnJo of Q. locksmith. He began his career of crime witfi stealing five hun dred dollars for which he fcuffercd two years’ imprisonment. After the exjiiration of his term, he fig ured in the robbery of the Portsmouth Bunk and received $70,000 as his share of the spoils. He sent a part of it to his father, who, being found with some of it in his possession, was arrested for the crime.— Jack, not altogether forgetful of the obli gations of a son, confessed himself the guilty party to the police. He was im prisoned and his father set at liberty ; but the rascal made his escape in about four months. At Concord he was arrested for larceny. He got out again ; and in New Jersey this modern Jack Sheppard com mitted a heavy wharf robbery. They caught and imprisoned him, and for the third time he broke jail. He was, however recaptured in Philadelphia, and sent back to New Jersey, where he was acquitted in some unexplained manner. Disgusted with the State, he went to Canada with Stanley, and the two travelled up and down the St. Lawrance. Steam boats expresses, &c., were the theatre of their operations. One time they attempt ed to steal a box containing $.'>0,0(M) in gold dust, but failed. Phil was arrested for the attempt, but was di.scharged fur waut of competent evidence. The last of this diabolical trio was Bill Smith, whum wc may regard as the servant, or rather slave of the other two. He does the most dangerous and servile work, and receives tho least pay. The Oiiir.iN of Thanksgiving Day.— ‘‘When New Englaiid was first planted, the settlers met with many difficulties and hanlships, as is necessarily the case when a civilized people attempt to establish themselves iu a wilderness country. Being piously disposeil, they sought reli f from Heaven, by laying their wants auU distresses l>efore the Lord in freqiient set days of fa.sting and prayer. Constant raeditalion, and discourses on the subject of their difficultie^i, kept their minds gloony and discontente»l, and, like the children of Israel, there were many disposeil to return to the land which persecutioQ had deter mined them to abandon. “At length, v/hen it was proposed in the assembly to proclaim another fast, a farmer, of plain sense, rose and remarked, that the inconveniences they had »uffafeJ, and concerning which they had so often wearied Heaven with their complaints, were not s» great as might have been exjiected, and were diminishing every day as the colony strengthened; that the earth began to rewani their labors, and to furnish lil>eraily fur their sustenance; that the seas and rivers were full of fish, the air sweet, the climate wholesome; above all, they were in the fu!i enjoymentoflilK-rty, civil and religious. He. therefore, thought that reflecting and conversing on these subjects would l*e inon comforuble, as tending to make them mor* contented with their situation; and that it would be more becoming the gratitude they owed to the LHvine Being, if, instead of a fa-st, they should proclaim a thanksgiving. His advice was taken; and, from that day t this, they have in every year observeti circumstiinces of public happiness siitficieni to furnish employmeut for a thanksgiving dav.” COUNTRY GIRLS. Mrs Victoria Fuller, In the Ohio Cultiva tor, in a sisterly way, thus talks to country girls: The farmers’ daughters nre thi* life as well as pride of th«» eonliti^ : • glorious r*ce of women whicl^tt^WlfPF can show. I seek n«)t to flatter^fiem ; for befor* they can become this, they will have to make earnest efforts of one or two kinds. There are some who depreciate their Con dition, nnd some who have n faNe pride in it, because they demand more considera tion than they merit. A want of intelli- gecce upon all subjects, and of refined edn- eation. is no more in a country than a town* bred girl, in thii age of booka and news papers. Many girls are discouraged because theT cannot be sent away fn>m home to board ing schools; bat men of superior minds and knowledge of the world would rather have for wives women well and properly edu cated at home. And this education can be had wherever the desire is not wanting, A taste for reading does wondert, and an earncbt thirst after knowledge is almost certain to attain a sweet draught of the “ pierian spring." There la a farmer’* daughter iu this very room in which I am writing, a beautiful, refined and intellectual woman, in whose girlhK>d books were not as plentiful as now, aitd who gained her fine education under circumstanccs which would have discouraged any but one who had as true a love of study. I will state why I think the country girls are yet to prove the h«»pe of the country. Tho women of towns and cities are becom ing so universally unhealthy, and so almost universally extravagant, foolish and fash ionable, that men are almost in dispair of obtaining wives who are not invalids, and providing them with what they demand after they have married them. Unless the young man has the fortune (good or bad) to be the inheritor of wealth, he must spend the best bloom of his youth to acquire enough to “ start upon,” as people are ex pected to begin now a days. Many, even in high places, would go to the country for their choice if they met there equal refine- jient and intelligence. Women are pre paring to take a noble stand iu history, and they cannot do it iu igncuuiice. Town girls have the advai.tage of more highly polished manners and greater ac complishments; but country girls have in finitely more to recommend them as rivals of their fair city sisters. They have more truth, hou.sehold knowledge and economy', health and consequently’ be aut) , simplicity, affection, and freshness of impulse and thought. When they have cultivated minds there are more chances in their favor for good sense ai-d real ability, because mo much is not demanded by the frivolities of society. I would not speak as though our far mers’ daughters were deficient in educa tion. Many brilliant sclndars and talented wtmien may 1-e found among them ; in old Virginia this is especially so; but I wouhl seek to awaken the ambition of all to be come tliJit admired and favored class which they' ought to be, if they will but unite re fined culture with their excellent graces. A sweet country h(»use. with rosea and honey-suckles trained to climb over it; with good taste, beauty and intelligence witiiln; toil enough to insure health, and leisure to court acquaintance with books and flowers, and the lovlinesa of nature, with peaee, plenty and love, is surely one of the para dises which Heaveu has left for the attaiu- meut of man.

Hill, late Secretary of Slate, relates the following : Many years ago he journeyed to Tennes see, then almost an unbroken forest. At that time it was a perilous undertaking. Robberies were by no means uncommon, and Indian outrages were of frequent occurrence. The passage of the mountains, too, was fraught with danger, as there were but few roads, and they alm/st impafisable. While there, he met a widow lady with an infant, left, by her hu^batlJ’s death, in a land of strangers, frtendlet* and alone. She was endeavoring to make her way ba^-k to her relatives in C.'irolina. Obeilit-ot to tho generous im[>ulses of his nature, he en- iJeavore»l to secure her c^jmfort, and to shiehl ht;r as far as he could from the hardships incident to the journey, fr**quently carrying her infant for hours in his arras.

Twie«jthey received each an equal nuinU^r of votes. Several members of the le gislature were continel to their rooms by sickne^.'j, and a committee was apjKjinted to visit them and obtain their votes. One of these genlemen, ri brother of the widow above mentioned, but an entire stranger to Mr Hill, recollected learing his sister speak of the kindnf-«s hown her by him, and cast his vote, ou that account, for W*ra. Uill.—That one vote secured his election.
