Burglar shot

--A fast young man, known in N. Orleans as Charley Gordon, was shot in the head on the night of the 22d, by E. H. Monteiro, into whose saloon he was breaking. He was armed with a slung shot and knife, and had taken his shoes off, and at the moment he was shot was cutting away the slats of the window. Monteiro, hearing the noise and seeing a dark figure at the window, rose in bed and fired. The burglar fell and was captured. He proved to be a professional thief, and the police on searching his room discovered $17,000 worth of stolen goods. The real name of the thief is Charles H. Robinson.--He was taken to the hospital.
