Alleged Mail Robbery.
--On last Friday, a negro named Baldwin
, owned by Mr. G. B. Claiborne
, of California
, was arrested and carried before United States Commissioner Watson
, on the charge of embezzling and stealing two letters from the Richmond Post-Office.
The negro was sent on, and bail entered to the amount of $300 for his appearance for trial.
The same party was to have been before the Commissioner
at 5 o'clock yesterday, for stealing money from some letters sometime in January or February.
The proof of either crime is regarded as rather too light to ensure conviction.
