The Xew York Ledger, and the Waver-lj Magazine for May 2lst, and Frank Leslie's Paper for May 14, are ready at Hawk's depi-t No. 10 Seneca street. Personal. A. Andrews, Esq., and family, of this city, sail to-day from New York, for England, where they intend spending the summer. g" R. Black, opposite the Post Office, has received the N. Y. Ledger, Mercury, Weekly, Waverly Magazine, &c, for May 2lst. Also, Leslie's Illustrated, Line of Battle Ship, Ac, for May 14th. flg" Blunders. There were a variety of ridiculous blunders in the article in yesterday's paper in regard to the Floral Exhibition, owirg to the proof having been read by another perst d than the writer. The mistakes were very obti-ous to those who understand flowers and their names, but to others, it made not a particle f difference. We learn with regret, says the the Albany Argus, that Henry Wells, of Aurora, well known as a leading proprietor of tbe Amejican Express Company, was thrown from a carriage at Aurora, on Saturday last, and very seriously injured. His hip was broken and, it was feared lie had sustained internal injuries. Sunday-School Teachers Should be in attendance at tie Union Sunday School Teacher's meeting this evening, at the "Old First," Dr. Thompson's church. Question for discussion : "What are the requisite qualifications of a good Sunday school teacher?" The teachers aod friends of Sunday schools will be welcome. 23" Rain. We have had quite rain enough for the city and country. It has brought with it a chilly atmosphere, and yesterday and this morning, coal and wood fires were comfortable enough. The gardens have drank their fill ot it, and life and vegetaiion is quivering with rc-invigoration in every direction. Such 'rain, once a week, without the cold, would be very acceptable both to human and vegetable, and for the sake of strawberries and grapes in June, we hope this wish may not be denied. j" The Ague. If you get the Ague at this season of the year, you will most likely remain au invalid all summer, or run into typhoid fever in spite of any ordinary treatment. The only real specific for all forms of fever, attended with chills, is Dr. Griswold's New Remedy. It breaks up the disease in 94 hours, and speedily restores the patient to perfect health and a permanent cure. This Remedy was used with great success in this city in 1854, and extensively in and about New York. Testimonials from persons of the highest authority, may be seen by enquiring at the principal office for its sale in this city, No. 3 Niagara street. flF" Warren's Composition Roofs. In the introduction into this city of their improved method of roofing, the Warren Brothers have been unquestionably public benefactors. At the same time, they have made an excellent busi ness out of it, which they well deserved to do for their prompt and thorough mode of work deserved success. These roofs have now stood the test of several years here, and prove admirably adapted to this City of the Winds. Being flat, they avoid the enormous lateral pressure on the walls which results from steep shingle, or slatf roofs, under the fury of our heavy gales. ' Indeed, all the requisites of a good roof are so well fulfilled by them, that we do not wonder they have been so generally adopted. We perceive that the enterprising proprietors also manufactures a Mastic Roofing, principally for re-covering old shingle roofs. This we have not tested, but much' prefer their old method, which we have fully tried and found reliable. See advertisement. j" Narrow Escape at tab Falls In regard to the men who were safd to have gone over the Falls, an account of which we published yesterday, the Rochester Union says: On Saturday a party of seven men' had a narrow escape from destruction at Niagara Falls.' They were on board a stone scow, which was loaded, and being towed by a steam tug to the head of the Hydraulic Canal. The steersman of the tug was not familiar with the channel, and run th craft upon a rock, leaving her almost a wreck. The scow floated down the river, and was in a fair way to soon go over the Falls, when the par ty on board, consisting of seven men, cast about for some method to saro themselves from the fate impending. They bad no small boat, and were nearly half a mile from shore. They had a long rope on board, to which they attached a quantity of stones, and threw it over as an an chor. Fortunately it caught and held, and the men were soon after taken off in skiffs. The scow was Baved, and yesterday a tug came and took her back to her destination. ftST Umbrella Nuisance. If there is a nui sance in our streets, it consists in the boorish manner in which some people walk in rainy weather with an umbrella pulled down over their heads, making a bee-line along the side- walks regardless of who they run against. We met one of this type yesterday, bent forward half doubly, bis head hidden under his nmbrel la, striding suddenly through the crowd, which of course, just as tbe boor calculated, got out of his way to the right and left, rather than come into collision, in which case he could look out from his shed, if he chose, with an air of injured innocence and say Why do you run against me ? I coold not see you ; but you eov2d me, etc., etc. In public, as in private life, there are a thousand ways to distinguish between the clod-hopper and the gentleman. This umbrel la test is one of them. rsr Accident at th Circds. Yesterday afternoon an accident took place at Dan Rice's Circus, by which the ankle of one of the em ployees, named James Talmadgb, was crushed. At the conclusion of the "one horse act," in which a white highly trained animal appears, the horse was put upon a platform to be canied ont of the ring upon the shoulders of fourteen men, in a similar manner to that in which the celebrated horse " Excelsior' was in the custom of making his obeisanGes and conges to the audience. In this case the horse had been raised upon the platform, and the bearers were pro ceeding across the ring with-it, when one or two of the men trod in some inequality ot the ground, causing the horse to lose his balauce on the platform. He endeavored to regain it, but failed, falling heavily on his side, without in juring him however, knocking one man nearly outside of tbe ring. This one was uninjured, but as the platform fell it caught Talmadge's foot and leg beneath, with the before mentioned result. He never uttered aery, and was carried out of the ring without a murmur. He was afterwards taken to the Hospital where he is seeing every attention. The performances were only interrupted for a moment. I$f Common Council Proceedings. The fol lowing is all of importance we can discover in the Council proceedings of yesterday : COAL MINES, RAILROADS AND BRIDGES. The President stated that Orlando Allen, Esq., was present, and was desirous to make some statement in regard to the Act passed by the Legislature in relation to the Buffalo and Pittsburgh Railroad. Aid. O'Brian moved that Mr. Allen be heard. Carried. Mr. Allen then addressed the Council. By unanimous content Aid. BemIS offered the following. Resolved, That the President of the Council appoint a committee of five members of the Council, to join with a committee of citizens proposing to visit the coal mines ol McKean connty, Pennsylvania, and to report to this Coun cil the result of their investigation, preparatory to taking such action as maybe deemed necessary on the part of the city, to aid in the enterprise of introducing into the City of Buifalo, the coal and other productions from the ie-gion above mentioned. The Chair appointed the following as the committee : Aid. Bemis, Ambrose, Alberger, Clinton and Dubois. On motion of Aid. Clinton, the President of the Coun cil was added to said committee. Aid. AlberGER, from the Special Committee on that subject, called up the report of the Committee on Inter national Bridge, laid over from the last meeting, ana moved its adoption. Aid. Tanner moved the previous resolution. Lost. Aid. Bhmis offered the following as a substitute for tbe report of the Committee : Resolved, That the Latrobe plan for an International Bridge across the Niagara River at Buffalo, h deemed by this Council to be the most advisable plan of any that came to the consideration ef the Committee having the matter in charge. And if the City of Buffalo shall un dertake to aid in the construction of abridge, it will he upon the plan above referred to. But before any liability shall be created by the Council in re'.ation to said bridge, it shall be satisfactorily ascertained if the Buffalo and Lake Huron Railroad Co. will adhere to its preposition to ; cross upon laid bridge, and pay therefor as stated : and ! what other Company, if any, will agree to cross upon said bridge, and pay therefore ; and thereby remove all doubts as to the revenue that it is now supposed will a ;crue from said bridga. Beforo the vote was taken on the question under con sideration, Aid. Tanner offered a resolution that when the Council adjourns, it adjourn nntil Wednesday next at , 2 o'clock, P.M. I Theatre. First Appearakce of Miss Vandenhoff. Last night Miss Vandenhoff, made her first appearance in this city in a play written by herself, entitled "Woman's Heart." As a play it is admirably constructed, remarkable for the beauty of its diction, the poetry of its thought its smooth and easy transitions from inception to conclusion, its fidelity to senti ment, its gradual and beautiful approach to eclaircissement, and the deep, holy, pure and self-sacrificing love thai distinguishes the heroine. Without any attempt at effect, and with manner simple and natural, Miss Vandenhoff, as the heroine, carried the audienGe with her from first to last, and all joined deeply in the feelings that had actuated this "Woman's Heart," a type, we trust, of many women to come. The plot of the play is this. Isolina (Miss Vandenhoff) is a beautiful blind giil, who, an infant, has been left in the cottage of Angelo (Mr. Swinbouene.) Angelo is a sculptor and a painter. Of all his beautiful productions, Isolina is his model. They love each other. The talents of young Angelo are discovered by tbe reigning prince, who delighted in fostering art, raises the young genius at once, to rank, wealth and station. In the midst of his prosperity, and devoted only to fame, he neglects and finally scorns the helpless Isolina, who comes to his palace, with the vain hope of reviving in his soul the rapturous love of the past. Two yeais elapse. In the meanwhile Isolina has been discovered to be the daughter of the Marquis Al-brizzi a nobleman of grent wealth and rank, and by a miracle recovers her eyesight. Angelo has searched in vain for Isolina, who disappear ed immediately after his repulse, and with re turning love reproaches himself for his vile con duct toward tbe hapless, helpless girl. He is sent by the Prince, who is a suitor for the hand of Isolina, to take the picture of her. He meets her, finds her an image of his lost Isolina but I alas, Isolina was blind. He is under a promise to her father not to speak a word to her, as though ihe does not recognize Angelo, a single note of his voice would at once proclaim her love. The ntcrview ends with Angelo's sudden arrest by the soldiers of the Prince, his startled exclamation, the recognition of his voice by Isolina, the mutual discovery and a sudden separation. The plot from this visit is one constant succession of beauties, and continues in added and increasing interest until the conclusion. Miss Vandenhoff is a beautiful woman, tall, and rounded in shape, and graceful in Btep and action. The encomiums of the press have all been deserved by her. Mr. Swimbouehb played Angelo in a superior manner, but occasionally his languge was too hurried Miss Vakden- hoff'b delivery has also the same objection, but not often. Mr. Canoll, as tbe Marquis Albrizzi, and Mr. Prior, as the Prince, were excellent. Woman's Heart 11 will be repeated to-night, and all who desire a really interesting treat will be certain to go and see it. THE BBOWN AND KEEP BANK ROBBERY CASE. Superior Court of Buffalo. Criminal Term. Hon. Joseph G. Masten, Justice, Presiding ; Heoox and Talbot, Associates. The People vs Alexander R. Allen ; indicted for grand larceny in stealing some $13,000 from Brown & Keep, bankers, on the night of the 14th of October, 1858. Benj. Austin and Jo-srxH Cook, Esqrs., appeared for defendant, and District Attorney James M. Humphrey for the people. The District Attorney opened the case in a brief statement of the facts he intended to prove. N j if rod Thompson, sworn. I have been in tbe busineps of taking charge of offices for the laat Ave yean ; had charge of Brown & Keep's office during tbe month of Uc tober, 1868 ; went to the office on a day io that month, do not remember the exact day ; found tbe door opening into the bedroom shut; tbe first things that met niy cyei were some pantaloons and vests, a pocket book open, and some change lying on tbe floor ; tbe tin chest half full of money done up In paper there on the floor. Said I "hallo !" Prisoner was in bed ; when I spoke be rose up in bed, and then lay back again ; some one was in bed with him ; the gat was burning ; 1 went to put it out, it being near the vault door, and saw the vault door open ; I called to prisoner twice, and waited fur him some time ; be did not come, and I went to the room ; he was standing over tbe clothes that lay on the floor ; some conversation occured between us; do not remember what it was ; he then called Mr. Burns, who got up; next prisoner asked me to go after the Chief of Police ; on my return I met Burm running down Main street ; Allen was in the bank ; I then went up to the Chiefs house ; when I returned prisoner found a bottle of chloroform on the floor ; before this they both said they felt sick ; there was a package of powder and a wits lying on tbe table. (Package and vial shown witness.) These look like the articles ; too package seems larger ; the side door was open ; tbe key was in the lock on the inside ; watch and chain lay under tbe table. Csois Examined Prisoner called Barns twice, end tten shook him. Said he, "Burns, we're robbed," Burns made some reply which I do not remember, and then arose and dressed himself. I then left the office-Henry Taylor was next called Was teller in Brown & Keep's Bank at the time of the robbery. Some three weeks previous I left off sleeping at tne Dan, anu pno-neralept there afterwards. I placed the money, &c, in the vault the night previous to the robbery, I should think there wag $8,000 or $9,000 in bills in the tin box in the vault tbe different kinds in different packages. We had some marked mils on one of the Hartford Banks. I think about $2,000. They were probably marked by the bank to ascertain if we gave it a good circulation. There were between $100 and $200 in silver in the bottom of the box,and the bills plated on top. The vault haa two doors with a lock in each if. was prisoner's business to lock the door. The lock on the outside door was a combination lock; don't think that I knew the combination on the night of the robbery. Prisoner had charge of the lockirg the vault, no other person but him was acquainted with tbe combination to my knowledge. I left the bank that night between five and six o'clock. The next morning I was called by Burns, and went immediately to the office; when I gotthere prisoner was walking the floor in the back room. SECOND DAT. Court met at 9 o'clock. (Conclusion of Mr. Taylor's evidence yesterday. At the time of the robbery, Henry F. Fox, Brown & Keep, Allen and myself were the on y persons who were in the bank. I went to the bank next morning, Barns having called for me at my hotel. I went to the office found Alien walking the floor. He was in his shirt sleeves. I saw some powder, and a wire on the table. Allen called my attention to some chloroform. He said the robbers had administered it to him and Burna, and in that manner obtained the keys to the vault. In picking up the bottle he spilled some of it on the floor. I went to the American for Mr. Keep, and told him his bank was robbed .) Wm. Keep, sworn. Am one of the firm of Brown & Keep. Was at the time of the robbery in October last. It took place on the night of the 14th. Mr. Taylor was the Teller. Mr. Brown was the bookkeeper, and 'a boy named Fox messenger. Mr. Allen slept at the office. His duty was to keep the books. He had the keys of the vault and bad entire charge of them. The key a combination key, and his duty was to alter the combina tion whenever the vault was locked. During tho day the key was kept in a drawer' behind the money counter. The keys to the outer doors were distributed among those employed io the office, but were not relied upon at all for tbe safety of the vault. Have learned that one of the keys to the outer door of the office, had been lost some time before. I think I left the office on the evening of the robbery at about 5 o'clock. I saw no one about the office, except Messrs. Brown, Taylor, Allen and Fox. I think all the money had been deposited in the vault before 1 left. I have no knowledge of the amount of money in the vault, except from that obtained by au examination of the books the next morning. There was abjut $13,000 in bank notes and about $2,000 in gold aud silver. A portion of the bills were on broken and depreciated banks, $6,000 I believe. The New York State money was in a package by itself, a,, also was the Canada money, the New England and the Western State money. The broken bank tills were similarly assorted, also. The value of all the paper meney was between $9,000 and $10,000. J n regard to marks on the money, witness corroborates Mr. Taylor's evidence. About seven o'clock I was called at the American, by Mr. Taylor. I went to the office immediately. X there found Allen and Mr. Best, Chief of Police. They were in the front office, by the Teller's counter. Conversation immedutely turned upon the robbery, and we all went into the back room where Allen lept. (Before we went into the back office, I saw that the vault door was open, and swung back.) In the back room, the trunk in which the money had been deposited, was on the floor open near the foot of the bed. Two large pocket books were lying near. There were a number of parcels of silver, in $5 and $10 packages, on the floor. The pocket-books were for the purpose of holding discounted notes, and other valuable papers. The pocket books were open valuable papers, a few, were scattered upon the floor. A Bilver watch was also on the floor, and some silver change and gold pieces. Allen exhibited to me a wire, a picklock and some powder. He a'so showed me s bottle like this (showing bottle); Btated that the wire was used to open the lock of the backdoor. Don't recollee anything particular that Allen said. He said, however, that t he key of the Swan street door was feand inside in the lock, and the door was locked. He said that Chas. L. Burns filept with him. Thathe locked the back door took the key out of the tbe lock, and laid it oa the table at the side of his beJ. I think Allen called my attention to the gunpowder. Can't recollect what be said about it. He showed me the bottle of chloroform and paid '-(Aire's what it was done with." In regard to the key of the vault, that when he last locked the vault he took off the bits, deranged the combination, and put the stem in the ("rawer where the key was k pt during the day. That he then took the bit (the head of the key) wrapped them in a large shawl, and placed the shawl under his head. This was the key to the outer vault. The key to the inner door of the vault he placed under Burns shoulder. Burns slept at the back Bide of the bed. The van It was laet locked he said at seven o'clock, or perhaps eight o'clock. I left the office at about 5 o'clock. Daring the evening Mr. E. K. Brace came to me and urged me to direct Allen to open the vault and give him the money for his check for $110. I wrote a direction to Mr. Allen to give him the money. Allen says that Bruce came to him, and he (Allen) went with Bruce to the office; wsnt in the rear door; left Bruce in the hack room and went in the front office. He arranged the key, opened the vault-took Bruce'a check, aud gave him $110; that he pinned the check in the parcel of money from which the amount was taken. He gave Bruce the money and Bruce left After Bruce had gone he took the key of the outer door of the vault into the back room, where the light was bright, and damaged the combination. He then placed the bits in his pocket, where he kept them until he went to bed. I found the check of Bruce's the next morning lying on the floor in the bedroom. He said that before he went to bed he tried all the window fastenings and the front door to tee that all was safe, and also the vault door, and looked under the counter. This was his usual custom, he stated, before retiring. The amount taken in round , numbers was $13,000. Mr. Taylor, the manufacturer of the lock of the back door, came there the same morning i and took it off. JL employed Mr. Best and Mr . J. K. Tyler to ferret the matter out. I did not know the combiua- 1 tion tojunlock the sare door, and could not have set the j key. The moneys returned to me since were the bills ef the solvent banks, with the exception of $400 Canada money, j Lave been returned, about $3,300 in bills of broken banks the same money stolen with the original straps around the packages. This money was returned to me by Mr. Best and Mr. Tvler, about b!x weeks after the rob bery the week after Thanksgiving. Allen and Burns wore arrested the day before Thanksgiving. Devereaux had been srrested a week or more previously. The examination of Allen and Burns took place on the day of their arrest. No other examination of them was held-Thev were committed to jail before the money was found. After it was found they were brought out of jail, waived further examination, and were fully committed for trial. Mr. Jofiiah Cook was counsel for Devereaux at the Po- lice Court. Messrs. Josiah Cook and Benjamin Austin were counsel for Allen and Burn. Had no knowledge of the locality of the money until I heard it was found. I heard through outside parties that it had been found before I was informed of it by Messrs. Best and Tyler. know of no one who knew the combinations of the bits on the head of the key, except Allen. It lay in the drawer during the day, with the combination unaltered, so that anyone connected with the office could see and examine it. The curtains were raised at night in front of the office, and a jet of ga left burning iu front of the door of the vault. Cross-examined by Mr, Austin. Allen was bookkeeper all the time I was connected with the bank up to the time of his arrest. I frequently sent him away with large sums of money. Whenever any money was to be sent away, he was always the messenger. We had an amount of money in New York, against which we could draw running up to $30,000 or $40,000. The d rafts were printed in New York. It was frequently the case tbn Mr. Brown and myBelf would both be absent, and no drafts would be issued unless previously signed by ur, made payable to Allen, or Taylor, more frequently to Allen. His endorsement on the back of a draft made it good. At the time of the robbery, we had a balance of funds in New York. There was no difficulty in Mr. Allen's at any time filling up one of these drafts to the amount of thai balance, and drawing the money. So far as 4r. Allen's integrity was concerned, we had never had occasioo to find fault with him previous to his arrest. The drawer In which the key of the vault wag kept was ordinarily shot. Have seen It standing open-All there is about the combination, is to accurately arrange six numbers. Any one with a good memory could do it easy. (Explained to the Jury.) There are six bits or leaves which slip on to a step. The lock can only be opnned by the same arrangement of the bits with which It was locked. Tbe hits turn over, making twelve bits io all. The number of combinations of which these bits are capable run up to millions. Allen said tbe next morning atter the robbery that the key had been worked upon its present combination for several months. Allen gave me this account of the rob bry (detailed foregoing circumstance ;) said be went to bed at 12 o'clock at night ; said he slept soundly untit awakened by the porter. Did nit know that Burns slept at the bank regularly, but heard that he had slept; Mr.. Brown was in company with B. C. Caryl at one time. Burns was la Caryl's Banking office. I saw him there My impression was that Burns slept there occasionally. Never bad an objection to it. There were $2,000 in gold, or about that, which were not taken. Allen said in regard to this, that when he went 1o get the money for Bruce, that he took out the bags of gold and silver from the tin box, and put the bag of gold and put ft into a pigeon at the south side of the vault The silver he set on the other side of the vault on a lanre wooden chest, and left them in that position. I fin them in that position the next morning. (The keys of the vault were identified.) Mr. Keep took the key nptrt and explained the manner of arranging it, to the ju-v. That the head of the key oonld be disengaged ion the stem, and was canied in Allan's pocket duilog the night for safety. (The key wns xamlned with a great deal of interest.) Direct rebuked. There are two vaults with an iron partition between them one entering into the bedroom. and the other in the front room with no connections be tween them. The money stolen was in the front room vault. Desnis Taylor, sworn. Am a locksmith by trade-place of business on Swan street, opposite Brown. & Keep's Bank. Recollect the robbery. Was called to take the lock off the Swan street door. I made the lock, I was aeked whether I could open the lock with the wire exhibited io Court I said f could not do it I took off the lock. It was a four tumbler lock. I was requested to see if it had been opened with a picklock. Could find no marks or scratches on the inside of the lock. The front door lock had not been tampered with, as I learned from careful examination. I tried to turn the key on the inside of the door by the picklock from the outside. Could not turn it with my fingers, but could do it by catching hold oi the picklock with a pair of pliers. There were no marks on the key or lock, to show that the pick had been used. I could not unlock the door with the pick, if the key was not in the door. When I attempted to use the pick on the lock or key, they became scratched. Cross-examined. Don't think the key could be turned with a pair of forceps from the outside without a mark on the key ; don't think it con'd be turned by a wire thrust through into the handle of key. Wm. 0. Brown sworn : Had no knowledge ef the combination of the key. No one knew of It except Mr. Allen. Mr. Allen did. Mr. Taylor might. I left the office on the night of the robbery at about 6 o.clock. In the afternoon Mr. Bridge came in and wanted $800 in Canada money on his check. Allen came back to me and toldmeof It, and said "you don'twant to let him have it, do you ?" I said if he had not gone te let him have it. He had not gone, and he obtained the money The question of Mr. Allen struck me as extraordinary at tha time. (Ruled out by the Court.) This was after banking hours. We never were partieular about the honr of paying out money, as long aa the money was not locked up in the vault, We generally paid out if demanded. There w..i nothing peculiar in Allen's manner when he asked me the question alluded to. I arrived at the Bank between 8 and 9 e'clock the next morning. Mr. Keep informed me of the loss of the money. I learned that the money which had been stolen was found about four weeks afterward. Mr. Best or Mr. Ty ler informed me. This was after the arrest of Burns, Allen and Deveraux. Had no knowledge that any one sleptin the Bank except Allen and Taylor. Cross- - xaminbd. Mr. Brigg's check was upon ano ther bank. Briggs did not say anything about getting the money before Allen spoke about it. It would not hive excited any surprise to have asked me if he should let Briggs have the money, but tbe manner of saying, You don't want to let him have it," Sue. Have sent Alleo frequently to Canada with funds to ex change. Don't think it waB arranged for him to go the next day It may have been spoken of. I should expect to be asked about the payment of a check after banking hours, if 1 was in the bank. It is usual to be so asked. Wa. O. Brown, Jr., sworn : Am 17 years of age. Re collect the robbery. Knew all those employed in the bank. I used to be in the bank five or six times every day. Did not know anything about the keys to the vault. Never had them or carried them. Know nothing of the combination of the key. Saw Allen and Burns in the afternoon of the robbery about 1 o'clock. Heard from my father that the money was found. Cross Examined. Have seen the key of the vault-Have had it in my own hand. Have seen it lying in the drawer lying among the papers. Have seen Burns in the bank in buBiness houre. Saw him talking with Mr. Taylor and Mr. Allen. Have seen the key lying in the drawer at different times. Fkedbick Browx sworn. Am lGyears of age. Know Mr. Am in the bank often, 3 or 4 times a day. Learned of the robbery the morning after it occurred. I first heard at the Gymnasium that the money had been found. Didn't Bee Allen after banking hours on the 14th of October. Cross Examined. Have seen the key of the vault lying in the drawer, and have seen it with Mr. Allen. Used to be behind the counter frequently Never went where the money was. Used to fill out drafia occasional. Oeorge Jones sworn. Am In the iron business. I bui t the vault In Brown 4x Keeps Bank. Furnished the lock used on tbe door. It is a combination lock. The number of combinations of which the lock is capable I do not recohect, but it is some millions. Never have attempted to open a lock of the kind without knowing the combinations. The chances of a man ignorant of the com. bination, to open the lock, would be but oae in the number of millioLB of which it is capable. It isn't possible to open without the fixed combination. Cross-examined Did not make the lock. Have never tried to unlock one without the correct combination. A man might happen to hit the combination the very first time. If a man should see the key and recollect the figures at the bite, he could easily put it together again. HhNRY D. Fox, sworn Have been with Mr. Brown three years. Was messenger hoy at the time of the robbery. Usually left the Bank about 5 o'clock. Had nothing to do wiih the keys of the vault. Mr. Allen had charge of the vault and keys.

Heard that a part of the money stolen was found under Mr. Bender's house. Cross-examined. Have seen tbe key frequently in a drawer. Allen used to act as teller frequently. Have seen young men behind the counter frequently. Seen the keylyiDgon the desk various times. Don't recollect of seeing it on the desk in the daytime.
