Industrious Operative.

--Richard, a slave, was carried before the Mayor yesterday for stealing four picture frames from C. R. Reese, worth $40, and a table-cloth worth $20 from Nicholas Mills. The fellow evidently had an itching palm. The Mayor ordered one of the officers to produce a similar sensation with a cow-skin, on another part of his body.
