perhaps well for those who set such a high value upon the chain, that it was not produced yesterday. Joseph Gray, a free negro, charged with stealing a watch from Henry, slave of Miss Nancy Ellett, was remanded for trial. Since the time that an enterprising Yankee opened a trinket store in Richmond, where everybody and family were invited to "take their choice for one dollar," the colored population have had an unconquerable passion for "jewelry," and those who can't come by it honestly will get it anyhow. Two persons, named Wm. Riley and Dan'l. Bresenham, to whose movements or characters there was attached something suspicious, the nature of which we did not learn, were turned over to the care of Gen. Winder. A charge of Certain illegitimate practices was brought against one Jerry Sullivan, who really looked very little like a gay deceiver. The case was continued for witnesses. Thomas Bradford was fined $5 for keeping his bar-room open on Sunday the 1st inst.
ead intoxication, but the Mayor said that was no excuse. Joseph Bazzell, a free negro without the necessary documents to show the fact, was committed for want of a register. James J Cox, the keeper of a boarding-house on 9th street, between Cary and Main, was arrested and brought before the Mayor, charged with keeping a house of ill fame. Certain of his boarders, who gave the names of John H. Baldwin, George Johnson, William Farrer, James Anderson, Simon Lubick, Lewis Stanley, William Riley, Charles H. Edgecomb, and William H. Watkins, were also taken in custody and brought before the Mayor as persons of suspicious character, having no visible means of support. Officer Morris, of the police force, deposed that he had occasion to watch the house of Cox; that he had seen the arrested parties go in and out at unusual hours of the night; that they never appeared to have any employment save walking between Cox's house and standing on the corner at "Solitude," a notorious locali
ce of residence, if she wished in future to avoid molestation. A number of men appeared to answer the charge of being persons of evil name, fame, and character, and suspicious persons having no visible means of supports. From the boarding house of James Sexton, on 17th street, between Broad and Marshall, the police brought up, besides the proprietor, John Quinn, Jos Knight, John Dresden, Jeff. Flannagan, Wm. Gordon, Francis McMahon, Rowland Corbin, Wm. Jones, Wm. Conway, Wm. Wathins, Wm. Riley, John McDonald, and Dennis O'Brien; and from the house of Jas. J. Cox, 9th street, below Main, (a few days since) John H Baldwin, William Conley, George Johnson, William Farrar, John Anderson, Simon Licbick. Robert Thompson, John Kelley, James Murdy, Pat. Keenan, George Dote, and William Breetlan.--None of the parties are citizens of Richmond, but came from different points of the Confederacy, either in the possession of the enemy, or threatened by him.
