Attempt to Swindle
, a free negroes, was arrested and carried before the Mayor
yesterday for feloniously obtaining by false pretences $150 worth of clothing from Miss Anna Louise Taylor
The sagacity of the intended victim prevented the wholesale depletion of her wardrobe contemplated by the enterprising colored female, and the latter, after her felonious designs became apparent was duly caught by Officer Chalkley
and locked up, a prey to the reflections that must have contended for mastery in her ebony colored but guilty bosom.
remanded her for trial for felony on the second Monday in May next.
