ccessful pursuit by Perrin. The negro, on being confronted by Branch, knocked him down with a paving stone. Thus both parties escaped. The cart, on being examined, was found to contain several hundred dollars' worth of groceries, and a search revealed the fact that the goods were the proceeds of a burglary perpetrated on the promises of J. H. Beegleston, a merchant doing business on Dock street, between 19th and 20th streets. The articles were restored to their owner, and the horse and cart retained by the police, to await identification. Circumstances lately occurring have pointed unmistakably to Elijah, slave of John Lee, as the negro who was with the unknown white man on the cart, and he was arrested yesterday and carried before the Mayor, charged with burglary, larceny and assault. The Mayor committed him for further examination, and as the police, by his arrest, have obtained a clue to the whereabouts of his white coadjutor, he will no doubt are long be brought to justice.
