Sent on for trial.

--Two men, called John T. Smith and S. Miller, alias Julius Shirley, were brought before the Mayor yesterday, charged with robbing John W. Graveley, a boarder at the Columbian Hotel, on Monday night, of $100 in bank notes and a gold watch. Mr. Graveley appeared as a witness and identified his funds, part of which consisted of three $20 Confederate Treasury notes, and his watch. The manner of the robbery was indicated in yesterday's paper — the parties as pertaining the fact of Mr. Graveley's arrival and calling for a bed in the same room. The proof being very direct, the parties were sent to jail to be examined before a called Court of Hustings next Monday. Shirley came originally from Vicksburg.
