Decatur, Ill., April 14.
A band of twenty gypsies, who spent the winter in Decatur, left yesterday for the West, with fifty horses and many wagons. It was learned to day that they took with them Willie TUCKER, the only son of a widow, Mrs. Mary TUCKER. Officers have been sent in pursuit of the Romany gang. Trouble is feared, but the officers are well armed and determined to bring back the boy, who is past 12 years of age.
