The forgery case.

--The Mayor yesterday resumed for consideration of the case of Wm. Cackson, charged with forging the name of T. McAllister & Co., of Covington, Va, to eight draft for $200. The question of jurisdiction was the matter which be proposed to decide. He alluded to the fact that the draft was sent here by letter, dated at Covington, and the presumption was that the forgery was committed there, Mr. Sutton, one of the witnesses for the Commonwealth, brought to his Honor's notice the case of Argentine, who was tried here for uttering forged paper, while the forgery was alleged to have been committed in Petersburg. The Mayor did not admit the similarity between the cases, for the prisoner in the present case wrote and collected the draft by letter, while Argentine came and presented the paper in person. It was, however, determined to continue the matter until to day. Appearances indicate that the accused will be sent to Covington for trial.
