Gathering them in.

--The police are as busily engaged on the trail of the vicious and idle loungers that infest the city as ever a hound was on that of a hare. They suspect that the scores of able- bodied idlers who infect the city are parties to the burglaries and robberies continually perpetrated, and they are bent on unearthing them at any cost of labor. Yesterday morning a brace of young men, known to be without visible means of support, were before the Mayor, and ordered to be locked up.
