Alleged robbery in a bar-room.

--Yesterday morning James Callahan made his appearance at the office of the Chief of Police, and stated that on the previous night he went into the bar-room of Dan Wren, at the old scale-house, on Seventeenth street, with nearly a hundred dollars in his pocket, and while there was relieved of the whole amount. He alleges that the money was taken from him by John Wren, and handed to his brother Dan. John Wren was arrested yesterday morning. It is represented that Callahan is generally a sober, industrious man, but it is quite possible he might have "fallen from grace" on this occasion.

John Wren was subsequently admitted to bail in the sum of three hundred dollars for his appearance before the Mayor this morning to answer the charge of picking Callahan's pocket.
