Robbery of a Tan yard. --Last Saturday it was discovered that the tannery of Messrs. O. H. Chalkley & Co., on the dock, had been broken into and robbed of a number of hides and call skins. The same evening two boys and a young man sold some of the stolen hides to Mr. Beal, feather dealer, and promising to return with more some day this week. Mr. Beal having found out that the hides were stolen from Mr. Chalkley, when the thieves appeared yesterday morning with another batch of hides, sent off for a policeman who succeeded in arresting the two boys. The young man escaped. The boys, whose names were Wm. Hardy and Rody McCarthy, were brought before the Mayor on yesterday, who having heard the above facts, continued the case till to-morrow. The young man who escaped in the first instance was captured last evening by the police and put into the cage. His name is Ellis McLean.
e going to the Theatre, Nash called at Walls's saloon, corner of Broad and first streets, and got several drinks without paying for them, and when walls then refused to give him more liquor, made a desperate assault upon him with a knife, and would probably have killed him but for the interference of two gentlemen, one of whom received a severe cut in the hand in the attempt to disarm Nash. Ellis McLane, Jno. Signaigo, Jno. McCauly, Body McCauly and wm Hardy, all boys, and some of them quite small, were charged with breaking into the bide house of c. H. Chalkley & co., on the dock, and stealing a large number of hides and calf skins. It was proved that McLane, Rody McCarthy and Hardy had sold the hides to Mr. wm Beal, and it was also in evidence that McLane and Signaigo had confessed stealing the rides. There being no evidence against John McCarthy, he was discharged. The rest were sent on to the Hustings court. Several other cases of not great importance were examined.
