Burglars in high life.

--We learn from the Carlisle (Pa.) papers that several students in Dickinson College have, for some time past, been playing the part of burglars in that town, and operated quite extensively. The American Volunteer speaks of the detection and exposure of the "upper ten" burglars, and the mod us operandi by which they obtained supplies of jewelry, cigars and tobacco, pistols and knives, and other "luxuries." One of the burglarious gang is the son of a prominent and highly respectable citizen of Dauphin county, and another belongs to an aristocratic Carlisle family.
