Unwilling witness caught.
--Detective officer J. Washingon
and week, after a long search, in apprehending a female called Charlotte Coleman
, a cyprian, and late a resident of this city, who was not long since bound ofter to appear as a witness against certain parties charged with counterfeiting Confederate Treasury notes, and who, on the day not apart for the trial, turned up missing.
The agent of the Government
, deeming that the witness had been tampered with, set his wife to work to trace out her stopping place, and, after a long search, lit upon her in. Memphis
Combined with the address and skill necessary in so important an operation, there was a degree of assiduity displayed by officer Goodrick
that may well merit commendation.
The trial of the party against whom Charlotte Gilman
was a principal witness, was postponed until the 8th a April,in the rather vain hope, as it seemed at the time, of securing her attendance.--Owing, however, to human ingenuity and perseverance, she is on hand, and likely to further the ends of justice.
