Hustings Court. --The following business was transacted before Judge Wm.. H. Lyons on Saturday last: The jury in the case of Daniel W. Lea and Robert Brannon, for unlawfully cutting Jno. Burns, were out all day, except when before the Judge for instructions. At the moment of adjournment they brought in a verdict of guilty against both parties, who were each fined $5. The Court imprisoned Lea for 30 days and Brannon for 10 days. Thos. Wilkinson and Jas. Baker, the lads who broke into Henry Miller's shoe shop, on Broad street, about 10 months since, and purloined a lot of boots and shoes, were tried for that offence, adjudged guilty, and sentenced to the Penitentiary for one year. Wilkinson was condemned to a 6 months tour in the city jail, a few days since, for petty larceny. On his last trial he was defended by M. Johnson, Baker by Lewis Randolph. The Grand Jury of this Court assembled on Saturday, but did no business worthy of special mention.
