--The lad John Hanes, who was charged by some unknown party with stealing a pistol worth $25, has been examined by the Mayor and honorably acquitted.
People should be cautious how they make such charges on slight provocation.
With the large majority of humanity, their character is all the available capital they have.
Take that away and ruin ensues.
The accuser in the above instance did not appear.
