Charged with Felony. --John J. Phelps was yesterday charged before Recorder Caskie with stealing a horse and selling the same to a negro man named Frank Johnston. After the horse was sold and paid for Frank suspected something was wrong, and carried him to Thomas W. Keesee, auctioneer, to have him sold again. Mr. Keesee testified that on the 4th of September he sold the horse for Frank; that before selling he made some inquiries about the animal, and, ascertaining the cheap price at which he had been purchased, thought it must have been stolen. He, however, sold him to a man named Peake for a little over $300. Learning afterwards that a gentleman in Petersburg named Moore claimed it, he telegraphed to that city for him to come over, which he did, and identified the horse as his own. The money which had been paid Frank as the proceeds of the auction sale was then refunded to Mr. Peake, and Mr. Moore took possession of his property. The Recorder sent the case on to the next te
Violating the Market Ordinances. --A diminished number of cases of this character were disposed of yesterday by Recorder Caskie, with his usual promptness and good judgment. If all such violators were treated in a similar manner, it would not be long before these offences would be put a stop to. Patrick Sweeney, whose trial was postponed from Wednesday, underwent an examination yesterday morning on the charge of buying a load of melons to sell again. The evidence proved that Sweeney's wife made the purchase, which fact he seemed to think sufficient to ensure his dismissal. The Recorder, however, thought otherwise, and fined him $20. A similar fine was imposed upon John Minnis, for buying a load of potatoes in the First Market, which he intended to cell again. The potatoes were also confiscated for the benent of the city treasury.
No Pass. --A negro boy, belonging to Capt. James Chesnut, of Columbia, S. C., was again before Recorder Caskie for failing to produce a proper pass when arrested by the police a few nights since. Some suspicious was entertained of his being a runaway, and, in order to have time to hear from his master, he was ordered to be retained in custody till the 16th inst., when the case will be finally disposed of.
