e occasion and disposed of the following business: Wilcher A. Morris was charged with stealing $5 in silver, $5.50 in gold, two silver watches valued at $100 each, $200 in Confederate notes, $8 in Virginia bank notes, and $10 in United States money, the property of Mrs. Marths J. Tyndall. Morris was remanded for examination before the Hustings Court on the second Monday in September. Michael Conley, a member of the President's Guard, was charged with breaking down the since of William Smith, a free negro, forcibly entering his house, and eating up a breakfast without asking permission from the owner to do so. Officer Crone, who was sent for to arrest Conley, substantiated the charge. The prisoner was drunk at the time he committed the improprieties alleged against him, and plead that excess before the Court; but the excuse did not avail him anything, and he was thereupon remanded to jail in default of testability to keep the peace and be of better behavior.

to tri-weekly communication, by horse, with the Piedmont country and the Valley, should not be dreamed of. No difference or disagreement between the officials named should be permitted to lead to such a result. Neither people nor Government should permit it. Then there should be instant steps taken to remove the difficulties in the way and restore the mails. Those difficulties could be settled by impartial umpires, which might be easily obtained; but it is plain that the Postmaster-General and Colonel Fontaine cannot settle them. So important do we regard the matter, that we consider it worthy the President's attention. He ought not to allow the great official and public inconvenience, we apprehend, to be matured. We commend the subject, also, to Governor Smith's attention. The State and the Executive of the State are eminently interested in the subject. It is only necessary that a fair and friendly investigation of the matter should be made to settle it properly and promptly.
