e Aldermen Caskie, Bray, Anderson, and Clopton, stating as an examining court yesterday in the Sergeant's office, City Hall, charged with robbing Ambrose Barrett, a resident of Chester field, of his pocket book, containing $107 and seventy cents worth of portage stamps, on the 17th day of February. The evidence showed that the robbery was effected at Ford's drinking house, corner Cary and Virginia streets, in a very bold and audacious manner, the prisoner seizing the money of Barrett as that individual was counting it, though he was prevented from carrying it off by a prompt arrest. His only excuse was, that on the night previous to his own flagitious attempt on Barrett's funds he had been robbed, and he thought he might as well get even by robbing somebody himself. Mr. Daniel, the Commonwealth's Attorney, conducted the prosecution, and the accused was defended by Mr. G. Dabney Wootton. The accused was sent to jail for final trial before Judge Lyons, on the 3d Monday in May next.

After some discussion, participated in by Messrs.

Courted. --An athletic young thief, named John Harper, was tried before Judge Lyons's Court yesterday, for an attempt, several weeks since, at the Columbian Hotel, to steal all the wearing apparel of an invalid Georgia volunteer, named Richard A. Cox. The witness said he would be back to testify at the final trial if alive, and being very sick at the time, and not making his appearance yesterday, the inference is that he died. The case went to the jury without his testimony; but the evidence was so direct that they found the prisoner guilty and assessed his term of imprisonment in the Penitentiary at two years.
Sent on. --The examination of Wm. Blankinship, which took place yesterday at the City Hall, before a called Court of Hustings, for causing the death of Geo. Crowe, by shooting him with a musket, in Sidney, on the 10th day of February, resulted in the prisoner's committal to jail for final trial, before Judge Lyons, on the 3d Monday in May next.
