Stealing time. --Dan. Murphy and James Hampton were arraigned for the second time before the Mayor yesterday morning for unlawfully possessing themselves of two silver watches belonging to Adam, slave of John E. Wadsworth. The circumstances connected with the affair were not developed, the witnesses not being present. The parties were sent to jail.

Being second in command to General Magruder, we felt that if accident or misfortune should deprive us of the brave and gallant General, we should not be left without the efficient leader. If the troops have a choice, higher await him."
