A man named Simon Murphy got into trouble yesterday, in the following manner: A farmer came to the city, and hitched his horse to a post on Madison streer, between Fifth and Sixth. He was soon approached by Murphy, who asked him the price of the animal. The farmer replied $150, after which they took a drink together in a saloon, and then parted. While the farmer was engaged attending to some business in the lower part of the city, Murphy undertook to sell his horse for $155, hoping, as lie ^claimed afterward, to make $5 by the operation. He got a crowd of men around the beast, and was in a fair way to effect a sale at the price he asked, when Detective Butts arrested him, on suspicion of being a confidence man. He was taken before Esquire Francis, who, after hearing the facts In the case, came to the conclusion that there was no felonious intent on the part of the prisoner, and, accordingly, discharged him.A young man named George Mitchell wds arrestedwhithePrizothcWets,Besentadd]m
