Propensity for stealing.

--At an early hour on Saturday morning, a young negro named Joe, the property of Dr. Pollard, went to the store of Harris & Bro and stole a pair of five dollar boots, but was pursued and captured.--Two or three days before, Joe got twenty five for a similar offence, and by way of increasing the dose with the advance of the disease, the Mayor on this occasion ordered him thirty-nine.
