A young pick. --Yesterday morning a lad, calling himself William Roberts, was arraigned before the Mayor to answer the charge of attempting to pick the pockets of unknown individual at an auction sale the day before. Two witnesses saw him insert his hand into a gentleman's pocket, but without getting anything; and a third felt the pick's hand in his pocket, but lost nothing. As no theft was committed the Mayor could do nothing more than hold this little chap in custody for the present.
