A Literary Character.

On Saturday evening, between eight and nine o'clock, a well-dressed gentlemanly-looking young man, went into the shop of Mr. Slevin, a bookseller, residing in Charlemont-street, and asked to look at a copy of "Fielding's Works," which was standing in the window. The five volumes which composed the set were accordingly handed to him, and as soon as he got them into his possession he decamped with them, and ran towards the canal. Slevin, being an old and very infirm man, was unable to follow him farther than the shop-door, and the thief escaped. --Dublin Paper.
