[Gloucester Assizes]

At the Gloucester Assizes, on Tuesday, C. Salisbury, who was tried, and acquitted upon two indictments, charging him with having stolen a variety of notes and bills out of letters in the Post-office, at Dursley, was placed at the bar, and given in charge upon another indictment for stealing notes, &c., from the same Post-office, the offence being described simply as a stealing from a dwelling-house. The prisoner had been arraigned upon a former day, when he pleaded "Not Guilty," and there being now no evidence offered in support of the prosecution, he was acquitted.
