After the story of the infamous outrage perpetrated the other night upon Mr. Burnett, the public will very naturally look for some sort of procedding on the part of the authorities to bring the guilty party to punishment. Nothing further will probably ever be heard of the case. Soon after his arrest, Slevin, the hack driver, entered into bond of two hundred dollars for his appearance, to answer the charge preferred against him. He failed to appear yesterdfay and to-day, and his bond is consequently forfeited. He is at liberty to remount his hack, and go in search of new victims at the Railroad Depots.
