THE OAKWOOD GRAVE-ROBBERIES. – On Monday at noon a body was buried by the city in Oakwood Cemetery and that night it was taken away. Several persons were engaged in the operation, and some of the tracks would indicate that in the party there were “one or more gentlemen who had on fine boots.” No bodies have been buried there since that time.
