Frederick Augustus Wright, a young man, described as an agent, of No. 61, Chester-street;, Kennington- lane, was charged at Marlborough-street, on Tuesday, before Mr. Tyrwhitt, on suspicion of stealing a lady's velvet jasket, a moire antique dress, and other pro- perty, belonging to his brother, Mr. Thomas Francis Wright, a literary agent, residing at No. 60, Walcot- place, Kennington-road. The prosecutor said that some time ago he was charged at that court with obtaining a mantle from Messrs. Swan and Edgar's by fraud, and was committed from that court. On the 25th of June the prisoner-his brother—came to him in prison, and from that day to the 20th of July he obtained from his (prosecutor's) wife several sums of money- in all about JM He entrusted the prisoner with a parcel, containing a velvet jacket, a moire antique dress and the property to take to Mr. Oddy's, in Argyle-street. to be delivered to Mr. Sayer, the solici- tor engaged for him, and the prisoner took it there, but subsequently fetched it away, and lie had seen nothing more of the prisoner till yesterday. The prisoner had also, although he received the money for the purpose, failed to get his witnesses to character in attendance on the trial. He (prosecutor), however, Was discharged. He had ascertained that the prisoner had been using his cards for a most improper purpose, and he had received letters addressed to him, but in- tended for the prisoner, from servants who complained of the prisoner robbing them. To one female the pri- soner had represented himself as a clerk in Somerset- house, with a salary ef £ 900 a year, and to another as possessed of X300 a year, and he had offered both of them marriage. Mr. Oddy, refreshment-house keeper, of Argyle- 8treet, said the prisoner brought a parcel to his house for Mr. Sayer, and subsequently sent a lad for it. He refused to give the lad the parcel, and the prisoner came himself, and he gave him the parcel. The prosecutor said the prisoner, although married and bavin g t wo children, was carrying on correspondence with different females with a view to marriage. In one of the letters sent to a female was one of his (pro- secutor's) cards, which the prisoner was using, and round it was wrapped a piece of blue silk, sent as a specimen of the intended wedding dress. Mr. Sayer said the parcel was intended for him, to he handed over by agreement to Messrs. Swan and Edgar. The prisoner, when taken into custody by Sergeant Cole, of the C Division, was in company of a young Woman whose acquaintance he had formed in Hyde- park, and to whom he was paying his addresses. The following is the specimen of the letter forwarded to the young wot-- a p My own darling Sarah,—I could no longer conceal the resolution which I have taken to love you all my life, and hear the character of your lover eternally. I have three times attempted to give you a verbal relation of the con- tents of this note, but my poor head has failed me. Darling, I am not precipitate, nor would I desire your hand if your heart did not accompany it. I declare to you, with all the sincerity of a man. of honour, that I have a most sincere passion for you, but I have seen gentlemen lead such dances when they have given up their affections to the lovely tyrants of their hearts, and could not help themselves, that I had no courage to begin an address to you, of whose good sense and generosity I had nevertheless a good opinion.— Your lover for ever, FIANK. The prisoner was remanded. a
