Constable Harper was patrolling his beat in Bay-street, about 2 o'clock in the afternoon, when.a middle-aged woman who had very evidently been "looking on the wine when it was red," stopped him with the startling request-"Lock me up, constable!" Seeing the state she was in the offi cer told the obfuscated lady to go home and be good. But she told the officer that home was the very place she would not go to. She caught hold of his coat sleeve and begged him as a great favor to see that she was locked up in a cell. Constable Harper tried to shake her off, but to no purpose. He walked down to the watch-house and the lady follow ed. When he entered...
