Charged with stealing a watch. --Officer Moore arrested yesterday afternoon a negro woman named Mary Evans, slave of Dr. George W. Pollard, suspected of burglariously entering the house of Nancy Payne and stealing a gold watch and chain, and one breastpin, valued at $2,000, the property of Martha Payne. The robbery was committed in June last, and shortly afterwards officer Moore traced the stolen property to a negro man engaged in the coal-pits in Chesterfields from whom he obtained it. Mary claims to be the wife of this negro fellow, and says she had been entrusted with the watch by a soldier to sell; but turned it over to him to dispose of, believing he would have a better opportunity to do so than herself.
