Grand larceny.

--Fontaine Rowe, the hero of a dozen disorderly proceedings, and an active participant in the riot at Solitude, ending in the breaking of John Curry's skull, was brought before the Mayor on yesterday, charged with exerting his talents in a new field — that of discovery. He had found and appropriated to his own use $32 in bank notes and $8 in coin, belonging to Antonio Silva.--The proof showed that the money was not lost. Rowe was committed to jail till the second Monday in July, when he will be brought before the Hustings Court for a further examination. It is quite likely that the present charge will land him in the White House--a kind of college where the students learn their lessons under compulsion.
