Undoubtedly, you have been fully informed of the post office robbery here last Tuesday night, and therefore I will be brief in my statement about particulars of the affair. The thief or thieves seem to have had full knowledge of the premises. In the rear of the building, a hole was cut through a panel of the door, large enough to admit a hand, and through this the strong bolt on the inside was pushed open. An entry was gained easily after doing so. The burglars traces led to Silica. East of that place were found a number of letters, some ripped and others unopened. The total loss to the government is ?? in cards, stamps, and stamped envelopes, while OSTERWALD will lose about $4 in coppers. Mr. Charles MILLER is the loser of $21.65 which he mailed to some lodge as dues on that day. Take it all in all, the loss is not so great as first anticipated, but many business letters are missing.
