False Pretences.

--Frank Livingston, charged with obtaining money from Captains F. Kilpatrick and Jas. G. Hawthorne, by false pretence, was arraigned before the Mayor yesterday. It appeared from the testimony that he represented himself to be a lieutenant in the 14th Louisiana regiment, and had so registered himself on the book at the Exchange; that an intimacy sprang up between himself and Captains Kilpatrick and Hawthorne, and to relieve him of temporary embarrassment, until be could procure an exchange of his Louisiana. money, then on deposit, one of them loaned him $20 and the other $7. It turned out that his representations were unfounded, and the two officers, finding they had been victimized, concluded that it was best to put a stop to such sharp practices, and therefore made the complaint which led to his arrest. There are certain papers in the hands of the Mayor, which go to show that ‘"Private Livingston"’ was attached to Col. Zoulakowaki's Louisiana regiment, and that he was charged with uttering disloyal sentiments and with at tempting to perpetrate a fraud upon the Farmers Bank of Virginia, With a view to give it a thorough investigation, the Mayor ordered a further continuance of the case.
