Case of pocket-picking. --A young man named Jasper Carr was arraigned at the Mayor's Court yesterday on a charge of stealing a silver watch and gold chain, valued at $25, bank notes amounting to $65, and $5 in gold, from William B. Lane, a stranger in the city. It appeared from the evidence that Mr. Lane was somewhat "beclouded" on Sunday night last, and after visiting one or two acquaintances, dropped down near the house of Wm. Blankinship, in the Valley. Two persons soon afterwards pro
o escort him to one of the Georgia hospitals, where he desired to go, and while on the way thither he made the discovery that he had been robbed.
He informed his conductors of the circumstance, whereupon they ran away.
It was afterwards ascertained that Carr was one of the persons, and he was accordingly arrested.
A new suit of clothes was found at his residence, apparently just purchased, but neither watch nor money has yet been recovered.
The case was continued for further investigation.
