Remarkable event.

--The policemen inform us that the Bible, on which the oath is administered, has been stolen from the Mayor's Court room. That such a theft should be committed in such a place seems almost incredible. It is to be hoped that a perusal of its pages will open the eyes of the eccentric operator to the enormity of his offence; that he will repent in sackcloth and ashes, and then return the book.
