Receiving stolen Goods. --Elizabeth Woodcock, a white female, was arraigned for trial at the bar of Judge Lyone's Court yesterday, for the crime of receiving three rugs and two pieces of carpet, stolen from Richardson & Co. It will be remembered that the negroes who committed the larceny of the above and various other articles, which were conveyed to Woodcock's house, on Council Chamber Hill, were long since punished, by order of the Mayer, for their share of the transaction.

Perjury --Don Juan J. Williams, charged with perjury in the last Shell case before the Hustings Court, was examined by the Mayor last Saturday.

As he was a mere spectator, the Commonwealth called on him as a witness. Some days before the trial of Shell, Mr. Tazewell, the Commonwealth's attorney, met Williams in the Clerk's office, and asked him what he know of the fight. Williams stated that he was sitting on a table when the fight began; that he saw Shell pick up a decanter, seize by the throat, bend him backwards over a table, and strike him two heavy blows on the head, breaking the disaster, and causing the wounded man to fall to the floor — When this statement was made Williams was not on oath. At the trial of Shell, Williams, after being sworn, was called to the witness stand, and testified that the fight was a general one;
