It was perhaps a* early aa 6 41 o'clock yesterday morning that a man giving his name as Frank Hewitt, accampaoled by a friend, called at the police headquarters and made Inquiry for a stolen horse. He aald be owned the horse and that It had been stolen from him alter 10 o'clock the night before. He lived la Cheater county, near Kennatt Square, and la a member of tk* Chester County Horse Company, who were willing to pay an reasonable reward. De scribing the theft of the horse, he said that he bad taken a young lady to chnrch, and returning to her residence, hitched the horse and entered the house. Coming out a short time after, he was surprised to find horse and wagon gone. The thlel was fol lowed as far as the lower spice mills, at which place the watchman aald he heard the wagon pass shortly before. He then came on to Wilmington expecting to find (be horse In tewn. A search was at once Instituted, and Mr. Hewllt found the horse and wagon undsr a shed la the stabls yard of the Black Horse Hotel, and took possession of his property. No eae about the hotel knew anything of the horse being brought there. Mr. C. Miller, the proprietor of the White Horse Hotel, says that a man came to his house early Id the morning and asked for lodging for himself and horse, but was tmrned away and directed to the Black Horse Hotel. This, in all probability, was the thief. Mr. Hewitt left town early in the day with his property. for up cf RESPECT TO P. E. QUIGG. The Union M.
