p.3 Robbery At Oswego - A vessel captain from this locality and a friend were together at Oswego a few evenings since, the latter intending to become one of the crew of the schooner next day. That night the Captain lost $180, which he carried in his pants pocket, and for a time suspicion seemed to centre on the acquaintance in whose company the loser had spent so much time. But the captain has now become fully convinced that the robbery was perpetrated by an expert pocket-picker. He should keep better company in future.
