Lodged in the Penitentiary.

--The present term of the Hustings Court for the trial of criminals commenced its session about ten days ago since which time the convictions have averaged about two per day. The crimes brought under the cognizance of the Hustings Court juries are almost of every imaginable hue all of which are comprehended in the general title — felony. On Thursday Deputy Sergeant O. R. Sadler carried James Kelley Pat Cunningham, Wm. Harman, Thos, Tyrer, and Julius Desplauques, who were convicted of garroting a man in the city jail, to the Penitentiary, and on yesterday the same officer conveyed thither, for a term of years, Pat O'Donnell and Pat O'Neall, garrotes, and Augustus Mason, a swindling substitute agent. To-day the City Sergeant will have occasion to carry up nearly a baker's dozen more of convicted culprits. Let the Courts do their duty and crime will soon become unpopular.
