C. S. District Court.

--The Grand Jury of this Court yesterday indicted Charles Melton, mail carrier between Pittsylvania C. H. and Lynchburg, for stealing a draft from the mail on the 22d of March, and Wm. H. Crawford, alias Flem Razor, for passing a ten dollar counterfeit Confederate Treasury note on the bar-keeper of Jarratt's Hotel, in Petersburg, Va. The Grand Jury adjourned until twelve o'clock to-day, when they will proceed with the case of Geo. W. Elam, charged with an offence similar to that committed by Razor. The witness in the case, Charlotte Gilman, arrived from Memphis, Tenn, yesterday evening in custody of Detective Goodrich.
