Escape of Robinson, the New Orleans burglar.

--Charles H. Robinson alias Gordon, who was desperately wounded in New Orleans lately, while attempting a burglary, effected his escape early on Saturday morning from the Charity Hospital, whither he had been conveyed for medical treatment on the night of his capture. Robinson was then thought to be mortally wounded, but subsequent developments induce the belief that he simply played an extensive "possum." Wm. Conklin, an officer of the Hospital, whose duty it was to watch the prisoner day and night, was arrested soon after Robinson's escape, on the charge of having aided and abetted the said escape.
