    "State and County
    Wm. Topper and O.P. Sackett were about two months ago sent to the penitentiary for four years for robbing the postoffice at Clarksburg, Indiana county. Last week they were brought from the penitentiary to Greenburg for trial on a charge of robbing and then burning the store of Messrs. Wray & Ashbaugh, opposite Leechburg, in Westmoreland county. At the time of their arrest their house was searched and a large quantity of stolen goods found. The pwnership of these has been traced to Messrs. Wray & Ashbaugh. Their private trademark is upon some of the boots, and the plunder is evidently a part of that stolen from them in November last. These offenders are veterans in crime. Topper is now serving his fifth term in the penitentiary, and Sackett his second."
