Tis GasaT LARCENY AT THE POTOFFICE.--It
will be remembered that some months ago. as
Mr. Lapeyre, of the banking house of Pike, Ls
peyre & Brother, was at the postofle, mailing
two packages of money, each containing twenty
thousand dollare, a person standing near him, at
one cf the apertures through which the clerks
communicate with the public, told him that he
had dropped something, pointing to a dollar bill
on the floor, which Mr. Lapeyre stooped to pick
up, and while engaged in the act, one of the
twenty thousand dollar packages was taken, and
by the time Mr. Lapeyre had discovered the theft,
the man who had called his attention to the dollar
bill had disappeared.
One John Lee, lately arrested on suspicion of
lbeing concerned in the theft, was examined yes
terday oefore Recorder Gas.tuel. Mr. Lapeyre
Laving been sworn, expre-sed a strong belief
tl at Lee was the p'rpeun who called his attention
to the dollar note, which he had not dropped, alnd
which had obviously bat put at his feet for the
lurpyose of drawing his attentin from the pack
ages and facilitating the larcetay. Mr. Lapeyre
would not swear, certainly, that Lee was the
nan. lie believed him to be the man, but said
lhe might be mistaken. MSir. Farrell, aid to the
chief of police, and other po:ice ouicers, were
,n the stand also. They knew nothing of Lee.
but had seen him frequently in the company of
proteesional thieves, and he was with oune when
he was arrested.
The recorder did not deem the evidence euit
cient to hild l.ee for the larceny, an4 diasmissed
that charge, but reqiired himi to give secunritry in
the cum ,f te o thousand dollars for his good bha.
