THIEF TO WILKINS TON, GET* Nl* YBO
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

A search was at once Instituted, and Mr.
Hewllt found the horse and wagon undsr a

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

by with bis bands In bis pockets and bis
overcoat outside of a goodly quantity of

stood. Soon after Nickerson was shaking
his fist under Devsny's nose, at Fourth and
King streets, where potato baskets were
plentiful. Quickly, Nickerson was stand
ing on his head amongst the said baskets,
and he and Duran? were busily engaged in
