A miner by the name of George WHITEHEAD, whilst under the influence of liquor, was knocked down and robbed of about $70 during the evening of the 14th inst., by one Mathew GRIFFITH, or GRIFFISS, as he is commonly called, and another party whose name is not yet known. GRIFFITH was arrested by Officers GREENWOOD and BOLAM, on Saturday last, near De Soto, and brought back to this city, where he had a hearing before Esquire McLAIN, and was committed to jail in default of $500 bail. GRIFFITH has always been recognized as having a soft place on the top of his head, the "place where the wool ought to grow," and we have never heard him accused of a criminal offense before, but his own confessions implicate him in this transaction. He denies, however, that he had any further connection with it than to stand by and see it well done, receiving his part of the proceeds from the hands of his accomplice, who he says did the business, and whose name he does not know. [Du Quoin Tribune December 19, 1867]

Prisoner Taken from Sheriff While on Country Road and His Body is Riddled with Shots - Fight stats over Cigaret
Perry, Ill. Oct. 13: A quarrel over a cigaret which started Saturday night in in Willisville, Ill., has resulted in a revolver duel, the murder of one man, the wounding of two men and the lynching of another.
The climax to the quarrel came last night when a body of masked men sprang from the sides of a country road, covered Sheriff Bresner of Willisville with revolvers, took from him his prisoner, Albert Ciazza, and poured a broadside of shots into him before the sheriff's eyes. Ciazza was an Italian miner, one of two brothers who engaged in the revolver duel with two American miners. Willis Adams and Ben Cooper, The latter were wounded seriously. Ciazza's brother was the man slain in the duel.
On Way to County Jail
The sheriff was taking Ciazza to Pinckneyville, the county seat of Perry county, where he was to be held for his share in the shooting. After the masked men sprang from the roadside, three men held the officer while the others marched the Italian about ten paces down the road, halted him, and shot him down. Fifteen wounds later were found in the body. Then the lynchers released the officer, and, after warning him that he would be treated as the prisoner had been treated if he sought their arrest, vanished into the woods nearby. The trouble had its Inception at Willisville in ill feeling that has existed for some time between Italian and American miners employed in the mines of the Willis Coal and Mining company.
Fight Starts Over Cigaret.
Saturday night Cooper and Adams were accosted by Sam Ciazza, who asked one of the Americans for a cigaret. Sam was accompanied by his brother, Albert. The Americans resented the manner in which he made the request and after a few words revolvers were drawn. The battle was over when Bresner and several citizens arrived. Sam Ciazza lay dead in the street, three bullets having struck him. Cooper was unconscious, suffering from what his physicians say will be a fatal wound. Adams is wounded in the abdomen and there is little chance for him to live.
All day after the fight there was talk of violence to Albert Ciazza and the sheriff, fearing that a lynching would be attempted, smuggled him out of the jail and started to take him to Pinckneyville, on the road to which he was surprised by the lynching party.

Found Unconscious, and Expected to Die, Her Head Crushed With Stove Shaker. -- Money and Guns Stolen and Boy Fled
The officers here have been notified to be on the lookout for an inmate of the St. Charles state home for boys, who is believed to have assaulted with probably fatal results Mrs. Jessie Lovelett, 33, of Duquoin, Ill., a matron in one of the four farm houses. She was set upon and beaten so seriously by an unknown assailant Friday, she died on Sunday morning. Her head was crushed in with a stove shaker. She was found by her husband at 4:40 o 'clock Friday afternoon. Suspicion has been directed at Frank Dossett, 17, of East St. Louis, one of the inmates of the school, who assisted in the farm house and disappeared shortly before Mrs. Lovelett was found. Nine dollars in cash and a revolver and a shotgun, which were in the sleeping room Mr. and Mrs. Lovelett occupied, are missing, as is also a suit of Mr. Lovelett's clothes. The Dorsett boy was committed to St. Charles on a robbery charge 16 months ago and rated an exemplary student. It was because of his good behavior that he was assigned to help in the farm house, a position which gave him more liberty than that enjoyed by the average boy in the school. Dorsett, is of dark complexion and slender build. He is about 5 feet 4 inches tall. It is believed that he is wearing Mr. Lovelett's missing suit, as the blue denim uniform worn by the boys would be easily recognizable. He is believed to have escaped on a freight train. The Great Western and the North-Western railroads are not much more than a mile from St. Charles.

Two well dressed young men casually strolled into Charles Guamaley's jewelry store at Pinckneyville late yesterday, hold up Mr. Gumaley and disappeared with nearly $1,000 in diamonds and money. Gentlemanly of men, adept handlers of 'gats', and apparently of the criminal elite, the pair issued their orders in quiet voices and painstakingly selected the gems they knew for the best. With two ugly revolvers pointing his way, Mr. Guamaley took orders. One was to lie down on the floor of his store. He did it. Another was: "Oh. get up again. You'll soil your clothes." Again Mr. Guamaley complied. Still another order was to unlock the jewel vault. The cash was taken from the money drawer and from Mr. Guamaley's pockets. The jeweler was to have closed his store within a few minutes. Darkness had set in. Ham Sims of Murphysboro had visited his friend Guamaley, it is said, a few minutes prior to the holdup. After the raid the two left the store in a leisurely fashion and once in the street disappeared. They advised Mr. Guamaley that it might be well for him to forego anything like a frantic dash after them, as they would prefer to beat an orderly retreat without violence rather than have to shoot somebody. The jeweler, once he had turned in a police alarm, described the holdups as two well dressed young men, and gave other details which he thought might help in identifying the pair. One report is that the holdups admitted the jeweler would know them if he should see them but expressed the hope he never have the pleasure of meeting them. This report said they left the store with a pleasant "good evening" to their victim. Mr. Guamaley was with the Wm. Kronmeyer jewelry firm in Murphysboro some years ago. He has numerous friends here.

Jackson county sheriffs who arrested them in the meantime are wondering if they found out all there was to know about the group that had rented a room in a private home on North street, Murphysboro.  Back of a bath tub in the room officers found four new dresses which the women allegedly admitted they had stolen in a Pinckneyville store at the noon hour Tuesday.  The shoes of each girl were muddied and their hose showed clay stains about their ankles.
"Oh, we got stuck up" they explained.
Sheriffs did not learn where. After getting the alleged confession, officers took the four to Pinckneyville and turned them over to Sheriff Taylor of Perry county. That officer had flashed word to Carbondale that he would like to catch up with four girls in a green Chevrolet.
