Garfield Hopes to finish rip the investigation by tuesday or wednesday of next week and will make up his report As Goon As possible. Heavy burglary in few Orleans. One of the burglaries expected for some time from the number of scientific cracks men there Are in the City arid which in some of its details of plunder remind one rather of the Story of the forty thieves than of a police history was committed on sunday night and what was almost equally remarkable remained until monday morning without discovery. The scene of the burglary was the old Bank building generally known As Tho consolidated Bank situated on Toulouse Street Between Royal and Boris bin. Tho Bank has Boen in the process of liquidation for More than Twenty years and Nas consequently. Done no banking business during that period of time. The building was under the charge of or. By. Pairie As liquidator and cashier and was used by a Large number of the wealthy families of the second District As a place of Deposit for moneys jewelry and other valuables. The vault of the Bank was very Large was guarded by two plated doors of we ought Iron riveted by steel bolts a they were however such As were made Many years ago with none of the recent additions of science and were easily forced open it is supposed in an hour and a half. Ti10 door to the vaults had been forced open and everything turned Topsy Guivy. Some sixty or seventy tools were found lying about the floor of the vault of the most approved pattern known to burglars made of cast steel and which could not Havo Cost Lesb than $500. In the vault some Twenty or thirty of the tin boxes ordinarily used to contain Money jewelry and papers were scattered Arounia with the valuables All taken out with the exception of the papers. A subsequent lot of about ten boxes we amp found containing a Large amount of Money Silve Wero and outlier valuable which had not been opened. One of these. Alone contained something in tli6 neighbourhood of $500, and belonged to or. He Rory Pairie the cashier of the Bank. In the front door leading to the Bank the lock was found to a a a a Quot a Washington Jan. 28.the examination of Corbin of the new York Gold conspiracy was continued to Day before Garfield a committee for four hours. He was very reticent ,.somewhat-evasive yesterday when inquired of about his operations generally hut spoke More freely this afternoon having evidently come to the conclusion that he could not escape the searching inquiry of the committee. The members decline to give the details of his evidence j but permit the statement that he has entirely exonerated every one in the White House from any complicity in or knowledge of the operations of himself and his associates. He does this not Only on his oath after the most thorough investigation but produces Liis books and shows what became of certain sums of Money that Fisk and Gould said or intimated went to the Ahito House or to the credit of some one living there. The inquiry on this poin has been exhaustive Tho committee boing determined to get at the facts the record is. Now made up from the testimony of Fisk Gould and Corbin is entirely conclusive As to the innocence of Tho president and his family. Whether the whole or Only a part of the Story of Fisk and Gould on this head is a deliberate falsehood remains to be made known As it also doo3, How far Corbin really went in assuming to represent the president in his dealings with them it will not to strange if the publication of the test Ciony shows that Corby rated to them Only Lesa than they have lied to the people but the committee do not yet see. Exactly How the matter stands. A or. Corbin was questioned about the letter of fits. Garrit to mrs. Corbin which has figured Sorn Nch in Fisk a Story. His assertion a that mrs. Grant said she hoped this Gold business would be Over As soon As possible because it made her Husbard very nervous. Whether Fisk or c6rbin is responsible for this version implicating the president is not known but what mrs. Grant actually wrote was a the president is distressed to Leam by the sports that or. Corbin is engaged in Gold and Stock there is reason to believe that Corbin withdrew from Tho ting before the crash came. He has submitted his Bank books and these show that he did not make very much Money out of his speculations and there is evidence that he declined to consider himself in the business. At one time when Fisk and Gould supposed him to be in full Fellowship with them it seems to appear from Tho testimony that he beat Fisk and Gould at their own game and led them to believe that he was dealing honestly when he was quietly cutting Earth from under their feet for his own Benefit. The committee had some debate to Day about giving this evidence in full to the Public at once but concluded finally that this was not advisable. They authorize the statement that the late Story told by Fisk to the reporters and printed contain Small particles of Wax. The inference to be derived from this fact was that the impression of the lock had been taken several Days before in the courtyard of the building a chair was found so placed toward the Wall As to be useful in Case any alarm should be Given in the Street. Coining now to the manner in which the doors of the vault of which there were two were forced open one Hole was discovered bored in the door six inches from the Bottom. The first intention of the burglars was evidently to blow open the Safe. This design they were induced not to persevere in by discovering that a fell of the locks and bolts were Ruby. The burglar thereupon commenced driving in wedges some of which were imbedded in the lock. The first of Pliego was a out a Inch wide As Fine almost As a Sheet of paper. These gradually increased until the opening was made sufficiently Large to admit a truncheons or Miriall slides of Metal which would allow of the Entrance of without any friction against the sides of the Safe. The opening was made an Inch wide by driving in with a Leaden Hammer Liose sound was further deadened by the use of India rubber jimmys l shaped prying levers with a heavy Iron handle a Yard and a half Long capable of being lengthened to six feet were now brought in play and so heavy was the Strain made that one of these was broken. The second door of the Large Iron plated door was proceeded with in the same Way the handle or a portion of it was carried off in a trunk which was missed from the vault. An affidavit was subsequently made by or. Pairie before recorder Gastinel but thus far no other clue beyond suspicion which listens the guilt upon and party has been obtained. Ccopr.3 special no. 71.
