A TRAIN ATTACKED BY BRIGANDS. A Central News telegram from New York says:— A desperate attempt was made near the city of Mexico yesterday by a band of brigands to capture and loot a railway trainluaded with gold and silver bullion. The brigands were evidently well informed about the train and its valuable freight, and made their arrangements with great skill and daring. The authorities, however, fearing an attack at some point along the line, wisely placed a strong guard on board, with the result that though the train was stopped, the brigands were entirely overmatched, and after a short and sharp engage- ment they fled to the mountains whence they came, leaving their leader in the hands of the guards, and four of their comrades dead on the field. The ou leader was promptly shot without the formality of a trial.
