Stolen watch. --Among the large number of delinquents at the Mayor's Court yesterday was a free negro woman calling herself Josephine Anderson, who is charged with stealing a gold watch from John Hardy. The testimony being somewhat vague, it was thought proper to continue the case until this morning for further investigation.
--The first felony case examined yesterday was that of Wm. N. Miller, who represented himself to be a Colonel in the Confederate army, and obtained by this and other false pretences, from King and Lambeth, a saddle and bridle and $497 in money, giving them in return a pay roll for money which was not due him by the Government. The Court heard the evidence and remanded the prisoner for final trial. James M. Elmore, and Tazewell Carr, charged with stealing a watch and chain from Wm. B. Lane, were examined and remanded for final trial. The Court allowed Wm. B. Lane the sum of fifty dollars for his attendance and his expenses in traveling back to his residence in Selma, Alabama.
