Our readers, no doubt, remember that some time in February a sneak thief entered a room in the City Hotel and stole a pocketbook con taining a small sum of money. The robber was apprehended In the act, turned over to the po lice, arraigned before Judge Sheehan. and sent before the First District Court on the charge of larceny. It may also come within the recol'ection of many that the thief, when In the Parish Prison, sent a note to one Lyons, his pal, to go to the Carondelet House for the purpose of claiming a valise and several effects belonging to the prisoner, who was none other than Faulkner. alias Quigley. Detectives Pecora and (aster heard of the affair, and arrested Lyons before he had time to go to the Carondelet House They then entered the hotel and found in Faula.ner's room a valise containing a lot of burglar's tools, and they also laid hands on several 0ojects used by the Ilit fingered gentry. Lyne 'was arraigned on the long charge and oraered to leave the town. He did leave New Orleans and went to Cincinnati where, it Is pre sumed, he obtained signatures to the following letter, published in the DMooCnAT of the nine teenth instant, addressed to Judge Abel: CITY or CINCINNATI. Clerk's Office. Police Court. Marca 11, lest. Judge Abel: Dear Sir-We the unders!gned, understand inw that a man by the name of W. H. Faulkner has been convicted before your court would respectfully represent to your honor that we are acquaint. d with the man for a number of years; that his character stands well in this community, and that he is almost the only sup port of an aged mother. Hoping your honor will take these facts in view in sentencing Faulkner. we remain, re spectfully yours, SAMUEL SMILEY ilerk P. O. C. L. BLOCK. J. P. R. J. NORTON. Court Sixth Ward. J. W. FITZGERIALD. Councilman Sixth Ward. GEORGE BLOk. Councilman, Eighteenth Ward. The signatures are genuine, and were ob tained under false representations made to the siwners by some paity who gave the name of "Faulkner" to a well known thief. Chief Boylan yesterday reedtved the following latter from police headquarters in Cincinnati. which puts Faulkner in his true light. OrFric SUPEINTENDEINT or POLICE City of CuOcinnatl. Cincinnatl. March 28. 1880., Thos. N. Boylan. Superintendent of Police. New Orleans, La: Dear Sir-I have your letter of the twenty first instant, with printed slips from New Or leans papers. in regard to W. H. Faulaner, alias Jas. Qulgley. Quigley is well known among the detectives as an old hotel thiet. It would appear that he has assumed the nameof Faulkner and obtained the oeltif:ate you refer to through a misapprehension on the part of the gentlemen who signed it. At least that is the Good-natured interpretation I would give it. No doubt the man you have is the senuine simon pure Jaob Townsend Sareapartill, alias Quigley. the well known hotel sneak-thief. I hope that Judge Abel will allow him to enij-y the Louisiana atmosphere as long as the law will permit. Very respeetfultb. E. T. CARBON. Superintendent of Police. THE CONDITION OF THE LEVEES.

In accordance with the resolution passed by the Board of Levee Commissioners of the Fourth Levee District. Capt. M. W. Darton left on Wednesday on the John W. Cannon. with instructions from Col, T. S. Hardie to confer with the police jury of West Baton Rouge as to the propriety of placing a guard on the Hickey and other levees in that vicinity. The same day Mr. I. B.

A letter was received yesterday from Mr. John F. Dutuy. a levee commelsiorer for Ihe - ville, left bank. This has always been consid ered oce of the mo-t dangerous levees on the river. but it is gratifying to learn that Mr. Du pny says that with the oomeletlon of the pres ent work all danger is provided tor.

For some time past articles of freight have been daily missed from the Morgan Railroad depot in Algiers. and, notwithstanding the strict watch kept by the police and by the em ployes of the company, nothing could be seen of the thieves. Wednesday, however, one of the men em pl,yed by the railroad observed a suplcious looking nearo leaving the frelght depot, and located his whereabouts to a cabin on the Ver. ret canal. He made known his discovery to the polide, and immediately Sergeant Pujol pro cured a search warrant from Judge Sarrazln's court, and raided the cabin spoken of. In it were found articles of wear. groceries, dry goods in such profusion as would have jus tified the occupant of the shanty to start a re spectable store with profit, if the fear of deteo tion did not debar him. Sergeant Pujol arrested Geo. Phillips, the owner and occupant of the cabin, together with two companions. Henry Brown and Jase. Robin son. The goods were for the most part Identi fled as belonging to the Morgan Railroad. or sent by consignors in trust of the company. Brown was brought over from Algiers by Ser geant Pujol and taken to the office of the Mor gan lRllroad, corner of Magazlne and Natchez. where he made a full confession to Mr. Pandely and Mr. Butchinson. He owned that he had been implicated in the thefts, but pleaded in extenuation that the others were the chief moters in planning and carrying out the rob beries. Brown was taken back to Algiers and reinstated in the prison with his fellow rob bore. CITY HALL NOTES. A Committee of Butchers-Gas Privi leges. A committee of butchers, representing the company which proposes to erect new slaughter-houses. in opposition to that now in existence, yesterday called upon the Mayor and Administrators in committee of the whole, for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not there would be any interference on the part of the city with the building of a slaughter-house in the Sixth District. The committee stated that they were aware that the city authorities were enjoined from granting permission to erect such a building as was contemplated but they intimated that if the city would simply keep its hands off and remain neutral they would erect the proposed structure and make a square issue with the other company. May.r Patton said that he thought that he could safely say for himself and the other members of the Council that there would be no interference on their part, if permission was obtained by the company from the Board of Health. and after some general talk the com _itttee retired. The Council to-day will increase the privi leges extended to the Water Gas Company, of which Gen. G. T. Beauregard is the head, so as to allow of mains being laid for lightlng as well as heating purposes. The price to be charged by the company will also be fixed to-day at $2 so per leon feet for lighting and $2 per 1000 feet for bhating. The time of laying the mains has been extended to January S3. 1881. THE PREMIUM BOND CASE. The Receiver Qualifies, and the Court Issues an Order. Mr. Charles T.
