sat at 11 o'clock.
The trial of Benjamin Reid
for feloniously, wilfully and maliciously stabbing Wm. J. Summerville
, was the first business in order.
At three o'clock, P. M., the case was given to the jury, who brought in during the evening a verdict of unlawful, but not malioious stabbing against Reid
, and fined him ten dollars, and fixed his term of confinement in jail at thirty days. The Court
then took a recess.
At four o'clock, the Court
again sat. Fountain Rowe
, charged with grand larceny in stealing $42 in money, the property of Anton Silver, was arraigned, and a jury in the case sworn.
The evidence was not voluminous, and the eduction of it occupied only a short time.--The Common wealth's Attorney and the counsel for the prisoner having been heard, the jury retired to consider of their verdict.
At eight o'clock, however, it appeared that none would be agreed upon very soon, and the jury were placed in charge of the City Sergeant
to be kept together till this morning.
