The Cages. --At the Cage yesterday, the following parties were imprisoned, viz:--Wm. Howard, white man, charged with stealing a blanket and sheet, the property of George J. Seammel; and Joseph Gaines, a free negro, charged with stealing a buggy and a lot of other property, valued at over $1,000.
Sent to the Penitentiary. --A free negro named Joseph Gaines was arraigned before the Hustings Court of Magistrates yesterday, on the charge of stealing, on the 15th day of December last, one buggy, of the value of $1,000, from John W. Frayser; three mules, valued at $1,000 each, and one sorrel horse, worth $500, the property of the Confederate States of America, besides several other articles of greater or less value.--The evidence proved the guilt of the negro, and he was sent to the Penitentiary for the term of two years. The Court was very much in favor of selling him into slavery; but it being stated that he was a good blacksmith, they thought it best to put him where the State could receive some benefit from his services, and therefore he was sentenced as above mentioned.
