False pretences. --It is to be regretted that we have in this community any of that class of beings known as sharpers, who feather their nests by deceptive practices, and take advantage of every opportunity to fleece an unsuspecting stranger; but we suppose this is one of the luxuries peculiar to the metropolis of a great nation. Frank Livingston was arraigned before the Recorder on Saturday to answer a charge of obtaining money from Captain Kilpatrick and J. G. Hawthorn, of South Carolina, by false pretences. The prisoner desired to have some witnesses summoned in his behalf; and the investigation was, therefore, postponed until to-day. If he proves his innocence, we shall be gratified to record the fact as an item to the credit of Richmond morality; but, if otherwise, he will have to stand the consequences of a felonious proceeding.
