be grand larceny.--James Clarke was remanded for trial before the Hustings Court for aiding Fontaine Rowe to relieve Louis Antone of $75 on the 10th of last June.--Christopher Kissell was brought up, charged with stealing 16 car springs belonging to the C. S. Government, taken from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and in the possession of the Central Railroad.
The evidence given in led to the impression that he was innocent of the charge.
The case was continued for another hearing.--William Pittman, a free negro, was arraigned at the instance of John D. Lowry, charged with stealing a pair of boots, about four weeks since.
The evidence of guilt was wholly circumstantial.
Complainant thought Pittman had done the deed, because nobody else had an opportunity.
The latter said he could prove that at the time mentioned he was in Petersburg, with cattle belonging to Mr. Robertson.
The Mayor said the case must be continued in order to allow Pittman to secure Mr. Robertson's attendance.
