The purchase of stolen iron. --The Mayor yesterday resumed the investigation of the charge against Eddins & Brannan of receiving five hundred pounds of iron stolen from the Gallego Mills. The private watchman at the mills repeated his statement made on the previous day, that he missed the iron, and found it at Eddins & Brannan's foundry. Thomas Walker was sworn for the defence. He testified that when he went to the foundry early on Monday morning, before either of the proprietors etors of the foundry to restore iron which had been stolen to the owners. Richard Walker, also employed by Eddins & Brannan, testified that the iron was brought there early Monday morning, and was followed by the watchman, who said it had been from the Gallego Mills. The men in the wagon threw the iron down and refused to carry it away. There being no proof that Eddins & Brannan had purchased the iron, or authorized the bringing of into their foundry, the Mayor dismissed the case.
