Pickpocket caught.

--Yesterday, at the auction sale of Messrs. Tardy & Williams, a pickpocket, who gave his name as George W. Farrel, was caught in the very act of picking the pocket of Mr. James C. Hunt, of a pocket book containing $200 in Confederate and other notes. Mr. Hunt, it seems, had his attention attracted to the sale, when the accused took a stand by his side, and folding his arms, gently lifted Mr. His book from a side pocket. Fortunately for the public, Mr. Thos Clemmitt had his eye on the thief, and seeing the robbery immediately seized the thief, recovered the book and contents, and with the of Mr. Hunt and Mr. Stagg, conveyed him to the lock-up for examination before the Mayor.
