Breach of Trust.

--Sarah A. Pleasants, a worthless free negress, made her appearance before the Mayor yesterday, to answer the charge of stealing sundry articles of wearing apparel from Catherine Hope, an old woman. The evidence showed that Catherine deposited her clothes with Sarah for safe-keeping, and that when went for them she received instead a sound drubbing, for which the prisoner was ordered the lash.
