U. S. Circuit Court--Judge Halyburton presiding--The following are the indictments returned by the Grand Jury on Tuesday, to which allusion was made in yesterday's paper. Against John Gaskins, for purloining letters, a true bill, 4 counts. Against Frederick Brooks, a free negro, for stealing letters, a true bill. Against Francisco Padrone Calleros, for being engaged in the slave trade, on board the Storm King, a true bill. Against Joseph Silva, for the same, a true bill. Against Antonio Fernandez, for the same, a true bill.--Against John Lockhart, (Captain of the vessel,) for the same, a true bill. Against the same for a misdemeanor, (connected with the above offence,) a true bill, two counts. The Grand Jury found not true bills in the cases of Henry White, William Warner, James Gillmore and William Spencer alias Cranston, crew of the Storm King. On yesterday, it was ordered that the Clerk of the Court furnish the counsel of Francisco Padrone Calleros and his associates
Federal Court. --Antonio Fernandez and Joseph Silva, indicted for engaging in the slave trade on board the brig Storm King, were arraigned before Judge Halyburton yesterday. The same jury that tried Calleros were sworn in these cases. But one witness was introduced, and the jury, under instructions, promptly returned a verdict of >"not guilty." The trial of Capt. Lockhart will probably take place on the 25th inst., and we hope the result will be the same. We imagine that under existing circumstances, the most minute points would have to be proved beyond possibility of controversy, to induce a jury to convict a man of piracy because he was found on board a vessel with a cargo of Africans.
