Arrest of a mail robber. --W. A. Hopkins, acting postmaster at Big Spring Depot, Montgomery county, Va., was arrested on the 3d of April, by W. E. M. Word, Special Agent of the Post-Office Department, for robbing the mail. The depredations committed on the above route had been the subject of complaint for some time past, and a watch being kept on the proceedings of Hopkins, his guilt became sufficiently manifest to warrant his being taken into custody. He did not content himself with taking letters merely, but helped himself to the newspapers passing through his office.
