Examination for Forgery. --Wm. F. Watson, Esq., Confederate Commissioner, was occupied during most of yesterday in investigating the case of Samuel W. Wyvill, formerly a Lieutenant of Artillery, who was brought before him charged with forging sunday checks purporting to be signed by John Ambler, as C S Quartermaster, with the design of defrauding the Treasury Department. At the same time Thomas H Kerr and James Sexton were examined for attempting to pass the checks fabricated by Wyvil. The latter had, previous to his last street, made himself notorious by being arrested for forging soldiers' pay claims and commissions of army officers, in which business he is said to have been quite successful. The three prisoners, after an examination by Commissioner Watson, were committed for trial before the District Court, on the 15th of May.
