Twenty thousand Dollars Embezzled. --On the 17th ult., the firm of Carbajose, Ybarzabal & Co., merchants of Havana, Cuba, were robbed of about $20,000, by a man named Pastor Riemus, who had long been employed by them as collector and confidential clerk.--With the funds thus acquired, Riemus set out for New York, arriving there on the 22d ult., in the steamship Bienville. Information of the matter having been sent to Key West, it was thence communicated by telegraph to N. York, and the accused was arrested Monday evening. A search of the apartment occupied by the prisoner resulted in the recovery of about $11,000 of the money, and it is hoped that the balance will be found. Riemus will be detained pending the action of the authorities.
