    • A JEHU IN THE TOILS

      Accused of Stealing a Robe


      Edward Hilliard, familarly known as a the Montrose stage driver, was arrested last night by Constable Gastmeier of Bridgeport, on the charge of stealing a buffalo robe from Mr. Loggie, merchant, in Montrose. The prisoner was brought to Berlin and now lies in gaol awaiting a hearing on Monday next.

      The robe was missed about three weeks and suspicion fell on this knight of the whip: his arrest following last night as stated. this morning Her Majesty's mail was delivered by his wife, who will probably continue to drive the stage rig until this difficulty has been settled. Hilliard is a man of fifty or sixty years of age and his arrest has caused a sensation in his neighborhood where he is known. He was has the contract for carrying the mail over three years.
