MAYOR’S COURT. - There was no
case of interest before the Mayor yesterday. The case of C. M. Rex, charged with
stealing nitre from the Government, was, after being partially heard, continued.
Rex alleges that he bought the nitre and other parties were in Court who had
bought on the streets a similar article, but it was well established that it had
been originally stolen from the laboratory.
Four small white vagabonds,
the oldest of whom was not more than twelve years old, were committed to jail
for stealing iron from the Old Dominion Iron Works.
