Ill-rewarded labor.

--The robbers who attempted to rob the Exchange Bank of New York, dug a tunnel to it from a building 70 feet distant, which one of them had rented some months before. The end of the tunnel was directly under the bank vault. It was carpeted all along to deaden the sound. The $1,000 they got in the vault was in uncurrent notes. The bank porter heard the noise in the vault, and the industrious burglars were frightened off.
