The chain gang. --The men composing this force have been for some days past developing the local resources of Richmond with pick and spade. Its membership is being constantly increased by the addition of new names. An efficient guard enforces obedience to the regulations, and causes the operatives to work — a thing that many of them have heretofore been totally unused to. Yesterday Leander Caskie enrolled Wm. Flemments, Wm. Harman, and Julius Desplaugns, as members. --They had fallen into the hands of the police as suspicious characters, and could not establish the fact that they followed any honest occupation for a livelihood.
Lodged in the Penitentiary. --The present term of the Hustings Court for the trial of criminals commenced its session about ten days ago since which time the convictions have averaged about two per day. The crimes brought under the cognizance of the Hustings Court juries are almost of every imaginable hue all of which are comprehended in the general title — felony. On Thursday Deputy Sergeant O. R. Sadler carried James Kelley Pat Cunningham, Wm. Harman, Thos, Tyrer, and Julius Desplauques, who were convicted of garroting a man in the city jail, to the Penitentiary, and on yesterday the same officer conveyed thither, for a term of years, Pat O'Donnell and Pat O'Neall, garrotes, and Augustus Mason, a swindling substitute agent. To-day the City Sergeant will have occasion to carry up nearly a baker's dozen more of convicted culprits. Let the Courts do their duty and crime will soon become unpopular.
Runaway. --A reward of $25 each will be paid for the apprehension and delivery of the following slavers: Martin, a mulatto, the property of Capt. John Page, of Hanover county, who ranaway is January last from the employment of Fortes Mason & Harman, of this city. Richard a carpenter, the property of Dr. J. Wilcon, of Charles City county. Richard was hired to Mr. W. M. Allen, Builder, of this city two or three months before Christmas. W. N. Pleasants 25th street fe 28--2t
