were abundant at the first station-house yesterday morning, because of the seizure of a large amount which had suddenly located near the First Market
without an owner.
At an early hour of the morning a gentleman, in passing along Franklin street, observed a furniture wagon laden with beef, pork, and bacon, making its way to 17th street, and, suspecting that all was not right, informed the Clerk
of the market of his impressions.
soon after obtained police aid, and tracing the meats to "Mechanics' Home," took charge of it, and also arrested James McCormack
, the only man in the house at the time, he having admitted that he aided the wagoner to remove it from his vehicle.
With the hope of discovering an owner the Mayor
postponed an examination till to morrow morning.
