Stealing money.

--Jas. M. Carroll was carried before the Mayor yesterday, charged with stealing a $5 Confederate Treasury note, from Nicholas H. Dunn, in Stewart's eating saloon, near Seabrook's warehouse. Daniel Scroggins, Mr.Stewart and Mrs. Stewart, and Dunn himself, testified to having seen the defendant take the money; but the latter positively denied the charge, stating that he had remained in the room with the parties after being accused till the officer arrived and searched him, and nothing was found. He exhibited a hard, bony hand, and his time book, to show that he did not get his living by robbing. The case was continued.
