In the United slates court yesterday All of Belr worldly goods were confiscated to the government and Public proclamation made of the fact. The Biog bams a few months ago owned an extensive distillery and a rectifying Bouse at Evansville valued at 800.000, two distilleries at Patoka a Small town near Evansville valued at 25,000. One distillery at Hasleton another at Maxwell and still another in Evansville. Now All Ara Gona from them and they Are both under Bonds to answer criminal charges in the sums of 110,000 each.

Ten years ago the bldg bams became identified with the into eats of Evansville a whisky men and have since that time been men of undoubted business tact and in to lagging Energy. Growing Rich rapidly much taster than would teem possible to do so legitimately they bad Tor some time been suspected of illicit distilling but nothing definite could be found out against them null last Winter when one Oigt their Evansville do Tillery waa discovered in operation in tha absence of the storekeeper. For this Offe oae Ibe Bingham were arrest and fined f1,000, and Tbs absent storekeeper discharged. Tbs warning did not seem to Bare any other effect on them than to imbue them with a feeling of contempt for the Power of the Lew. For they operated in violation of its provisions on a greater scale. After Belr arrest and Oon Villon the bin Grams pursued the even Tenor of their Way and Nib tag extraordinary transpired until Ibe Telegraph orders cams last summer to seize the distilleries at Evansville.
