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. a cr, in default of lthi:hI he was .iseteanced to alsi ianlihs in the Workhouse as a vagranLt Tit CTaLT CO'iuMslouas BAKIER IM'EsCII "e.r C'.

Never told Mr. Correjolles that it cost l.m $2t00 to get his certticates. It cost him nothing, in one sense. The sense In whici it c.st hiblm money was treating to a glass of whisLky or something. The defense objected to this mode of exami nation, which might involve the witness into a cavil or criminal prosecutiono.

Mr. Gauche wished to know of the witness whether the work was not done Is October t instead of November. Objection wuas made by the defense.
