CITY OF MBXICO, May 20. —The detectives of the City of Mexico are wrestling with a most mysterious crime, and thus far without satisfactory results. One of the leading banking firms of this city has sustained a loss claimed to bo as great as 8300,000. All that has been made public about the theft is that the officers of the institution on coming to the bank one morning found the doors of the vault wide open. The cash had been carried off, with the exception of some bags of silver, with which the thieves evidently did not care to burden themselves. Residence Burned. JEIISKYVILI,!.;, 111., May 20.—The two-story residence of Mrs. Jennie Mahon,- occupied by J. C. Gaskill, was, this afternoon, totally destroyed by fire. Most of the contents were saved.
