The Mayor ordered him 39, committed him in default of $300, and ordered that he be enrolled as a member of the Chain-Gang.

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.
