A Warning to Boys—In the Police Court yesterday, a lad named Patrick Donahue was brought up, charged with exposing his person, by bathing in the river at Wind Mill Point. Donahue was admonished and discharged. The Court, while discharging him, said that if every party was brought before it charged with this offence it would fine them heavily, as it was determined to put a stop to the practice of bathing in a state of nudity opposite places of public resort.
