A woman, about fifty-five years old, was held to bail at Birmingham, on Thursday week, on a charge of stealing some meat from a butcher's shop : there was no doubt of her guilt ; but what is remarkable in the circumstance is, that she was declared by her lawyer to have sustained an excellent character, and to be actually worth at least 10.000/. At her marriage, 5000/. was settled upon her; and last week, he sold pro- perty on her account to the value of 70001. She was considered a veiy religious woman.
