Wearing Apparel.

--Fanny Forrest appeared before the Mayor yesterday to answer the charge of stealing several articles of clothing from Maggie Fortune. Both the prisoner, and complainant were Cary street cyprians, and had resided in the same house, on intimate terms. Miss Fortune swore positively to the goods, and that they had been taken without her knowledge or consent. On the other side, a young man swore that the articles claimed were given to the prisoner by him, and that he could readily recognize them; but as the witness bad offered Miss Fortune $20 not to appear, His Honor concluded that the goods belonged to the complainant, and after turning them over to her discharged the accused.
