--The Governor, on Saturday, extended Executive clemency to Benjamin W. Carter, the youth who was convicted at the present term of the Hustings Court and sentenced to the State Prison for two years for the forging of Juan Pizzini's name to a check for $180, payable at the Exchange Bank of Virginia. The pardon was applied for on the ground of the prisoner's youth and inexperience, and the fact that in the transaction it was more than probable he was a dupe of more designing persons.
