derly conduct, and drawing a knife in the Varieties Theatre, Monday night, was committed in default of surety for his good behavior. His Honor said he was determined to preserve as good order in such establishments as in churches, and that while he could prevent it nobody should go there to disturb peaceful people who only sought to be amused. He disclaimed the ownership of the knife, but His Honor was of the opinion that the use he made of it gave him a claim to be considered such.

Charged with stealing a watch. --Officer Moore arrested yesterday afternoon a negro woman named Mary Evans, slave of Dr. George W. Pollard, suspected of burglariously entering the house of Nancy Payne and stealing a gold watch and chain, and one breastpin, valued at $2,000, the property of Martha Payne. The robbery was committed in June last, and shortly afterwards officer Moore traced the stolen property to a negro man engaged in the coal-pits in Chesterfields from whom he obtained it. Mary claims to be the wife of this negro fellow, and says she had been entrusted with the watch by a soldier to sell; but turned it over to him to dispose of, believing he would have a better opportunity to do so than herself.
