INCENDIARIES TAKEN. It will perhaps be gratifying to our citizens to know, that the ringleaders of the gang of robbers and incendiaries who for (he last two months have been committing depredations in this city, have been arrested, and imprisoned for trial at the next term of the Court of Common Pleas. Facts, causing suspicion to rest on certain individuals, were communicated to constable Brooks some three weeks since. Mr Brooks, together with constable Safin and Hazen, whom he called to his assistance, immediately devised ways and means to ascertain whether or not their suspicions were well grounded.-The result of a few days' investigation was the arrest of Wm Doty, Hugh L. Daugherty, and Presley F. Neville, alias (and more properly) Presley N. Fisler, charged wilh the crimes of \vhich it was suspected they were guilty. Two of them, Doty and Filler, were arrested on the morning following the robbery of Mr Weslcott'a shoe store on Main between Fourth and Fifth sts., and all, or nearly all, the booty found i^i the possession of Doty. Fisler has since confessed. It appears, by the testimony given in by him before the magistrate, that all the laic fires were the work of incendiaries, among which he and Doly were the conspicuous actors. The first of the series, namely, that of the store of Mr Clark, near the corner of Main and Seventh sts., was set on fire by Doty and another of the gang, yet at large.-I h e next, Mr Day's hat and cap store, on Main st. between Fourth ind Fifth sts., by the same. The next, Mr Meguier's shoe store, and Mr Ewing's saddle and harness shop, « . « ^ T * . -- * _ ^ " \ a ~ i . . * . * Gazette of the apprehension of incendiaries, adds -the following which we deem it just to insert: "We have been furnished by interested gentlemen with farther particulars respecting the arrest these villains. Jt seems that ail our constables [Hopkins, Pruden Nocks, Smith, Abbott and Wright as well as the others named have been actively engaged in work, lirooks and Madison, constables, with Joseph Morrow, went Dayton in search of James Henry who has been but a short time the Penitentiary, and was a in the band of desperadoes. Not finding him there, they left a description o f h i s person with proper officers, and proceeded to On their return they learned that the Marshal of Dayton had taken Henry into his custody, but shyness, afterwards suffered him escape. Doty and Hopkins subsequently endeavored to take the and arrest him, but were unsuccessful. Our police officers have been untiring in their exertions to to justice these offenders; and much praise cannot be bestowed upon them in return." Post Office Extras.--"We find the following notice of one extra transaction^ the Pittsburgh Gazette: "The case of the extra allowance of SI0,000 per year to Reeside Slaymaker, was a prominent one.-The facts were briefly these. appeared to "be five or six partners in carrying the mail hence to d e l p h i a ; au extra allowance 000 per year, was made to these partners, for about 21 months. allowance was only known to two the partners, u n t i l the the senate proclaimed it to the world. Mr Horbach then very properly claimed his share of it. Mess. Reeside and Slaymaker refused to pay him any part of it, or to any explanation of how it had a p p l i e d ; but very kindly and affectionately consented to explain confidentially to Messrs. McKee and McNair. how the money had been expended. These g e n t l e m e report whether the money had expended for the advantage of the firm, but were not to say how it expended. They reported in favor Reeside and Slaymaker, but were not at liberty to state what passed 1*J -- - ~ · * -- " « · " · » » l « \ r f O s J O»_AVy LS» - - _ _ _ ,, -- _. . ,,. . v v fcj fc« j.\^ v v l i d I \J Clj O t U on Lower Market st., by Doty and between thern and those T?\s\er.

Stores were entered and robbed of whatever was thought to be the most valuable before setting fire to them. The robbery of Mr Moses' dry goods store, on Fiflh st., was committed by Doty and Fisler, assisted by Daugherly.

Messrs McKee and McNairhave got into some trouble about the they took in this affair. Upon its Deing made public, the agency regarded as not a very creditable one. Indeed it is difficult to consider it in any other l i g h t becoming confidential confederates in a transaction too foul to bear the What is the legitimate inference from the decision that the money been expended for the advantage the firm?

He usually enacts his part behind the c u r t a i n ; in other words, he lays out work for his inferiors to execute. Doly and Fisler are also old offenders, tho' y o u n g in years. J u d g i n g from appearances, the age of neither of them exceeds twenty-one. In the character of Doty, h u m a n depravity is developed in its deepest dye. ' Fislcr, d u r i n g the last four or five months and up to the time o f h i s arrest, was in the employ of Mr Ewing. I3y his close attention' to business d u r i n g working hours, he succeeded in avoiding suspicion, notwithstanding the extent to which, for the lost month or two, he carried on his work of destruction. After b u r n i n g assisted by Doly, his employer's store on Lower Market st., he removed to the other store of Mr Ewing, on Mam between Columbia and Front sts. He there continued, s t i l l unsuspected, uut.l, to the astonishment oi Ins employer, he was arrested by is due constables Brooks, Saffin and Hazen, for their vigilance m ferreting out and breaking "P this organized band of desperadoes.
