At Marlborough-street, Michael Quinlan, a young man about 20 years of age, was charged with having plundered his employer, Mr. Welsh, the proprietor of the late Argyll Rooms, of a variety of musical instruments. The prisoner had been employed by Mr. Welsh during the last fourteen months, as a printer of music. On the last day preceding the fire, Mr. Welsh accused the prisoner of having stolen a flute. The prisoner at first denied all knowledge of the flute, but afterward confessed having robbed his master to a serious extent, and produced a number of duplicates of his master's property, from which it appeared that he had carried on an extensive system of plunder during the whole time he had been in Mr. Welsh's service, to the amount of 200l. The pawnbroker produced the stolen property, and the prisoner was committed for trial.
