Found guilty.

--Judge Lyons's Court was in session yesterday, and disposed of two cases. William Clark, a deserter from the Yankee army, was tried by a jury for the larceny, on the 2d of December of one bag of pepper, valued at one hundred dollars, and three coats and one pair of pantaloons, the property of Bernard Gottlieb. The prisoner being found guilty, was sentenced by the Judge in accordance with the finding of the jury, to two years in the penitentiary.--Chas. Girth, a German, who was indicted on Monday for grand larceny, in stealing, on the 16th of last January, two coats from Frank Dickman, was set to the bar, and a jury being sworn for his trial, after hearing the evidence, returned a verdict of guilty of petty larceny. The defendant in this instance is a soldier.--The Judge took time to consider of the amount of punishment to be awarded.
