Stealing Money.

--A free negro, named Dick Adams, was arraigned before the Mayor yesterday, to answer the charge of stealing $12 in money from Mrs. Mary Chriver, on Wednesday morning. Mrs. C. keeps a small grocery in the upper part of the city. While she was attending to her child, Dick walked in to get a drink of water, and immediately after the money was missed. The Mayor ordered the prisoner to be flogged. From this decision an appeal was taken to the Hustings Court.
