Heavy Bank Robbery


The Southern Bank of Kentucky, in Carrollton, Carroll County, was robbed at 1 1/2 o'clock this morning by about sixteen men in uniform, who represented themselves as belonging to Scott's rebel cavalry.  They were first discovered by Mr. Crawford, Cashier, who lives in the rear of the Bank, on whom they fired, driving back into his house.

After recovering all the money from the vault and burning the papers therein, they mounted their horses and started off in the direction of Owen County.

The amount of money stolen is $100,000 in gold and silver, and $30,000 in paper money.

Every effort is being made to capture the robbers,
