Called Court. --A special session of the Court of Hustings was held yesterday, for the examination of John C. Crewson, alias John C. Dawson, for feloniously and falsely pretending and representing himself to be a Lieutenant in the Army of the Confederate States of America, having on the dress of a soldier, and being in company with another person whom he represented as his Sergeant, and by the aforesaid false pretences, obtaining from Wm. H. Burton one Confederate note, of the value of twenty dollars. On motion of the Attorney for the Commonwealth, the examination was continued to the next regular term of the Court; and a rule was awarded against Wm. H. Burton, Thomas Payne, and John P. Lloyd, to show cause why they should not be fined and attached for contempt, which rule was made returnable to the next term.
