Last night a warrant was issued by Justice Tibbits for the arrest of a man named Sinclair, who was engaged in circulating a subscription ostensibly to relieve the afflicted young wife and mother of the young man McIntosh who died at the Custer House on Wednesday morning last. At a late hour last evening, Mr. Johnson, who had so nobly assisted the afflicted family by collecting $54 in the same way, having paid over the amount collected by himself, made the discovery that Sinclair had failed to pay over what he had collected, and that he had disappeared, taking the money with him. It is to be hoped the officer will nab him.
