GUILTY OF SOMETHING. Another lawyer story arrives. We are told that a man was charged with picking a pocket the other day, and that when in the dock he plead ed "guilty." The case went to the jury, however, and the verdict was '"not guilty." And the magistrate spoke as lollows :—"'You don't leave this court without a stain on your character.
