--Present Recorder Caskie and a full beach. The following parties were examined and sent on for trial before Judge Lyons for the offences set opposite to their names, viz: Patrick Kurby, for receiving a large lot of dry goods stolen from John C. Shafer on the 17th of March; John Cockrane, for stealing a horse, valued at $100, from Thomas Barham, on the 2d day of May; John Murphy, for cutting stabbing, and wounding Mathew Callahan, on the 20th day of April; James Hill, for assaulting Jacob Holder, on the 5th day of May, and by force taking from him one pistol, valued at $50, and $25 in C. S. notes; Henry Chadwell, for stealing a horse, valued at $100, on the 2d of May, from William S. Kemper; Edward Murphy, for entering, in the night time of the 21st of April, the storehouse of Walter D. Blair & Co., and stealing a lot of groceries, including 15 lbs. of tea, valued at $80.

Frances Hueston was examined for receiving, on the 25th of April, several pieces of jewelry, stolen from James P. Tyler, and was acquitted; also, Patrick Jacobs, for having on the 11th December stolen from Morris Levy a gold watch, valued at $80, and Cornelius McNemara, for having on the 12th of March received certain stolen articles from some person unknown. In this case, the acquittal of the prisoner resulted from an exception taken by his counsel to the certificate of the Mayor sending on the case, which the Court quashed, and discharged the accused.

The case of John W. Sartain and Gideon B. Thompson, for robbing Wm. Rouse of $40, in December last, in Screamersville, was continued until the June term of the Court. The case of Carter Padlock, charged with counselling, aiding, and abetting Sartain and Thompson in committing the robbery on Rouse, was continued until the June term of the Court on account of the absence of material witnesses

Lucy Stearn was fined $10 and costs for allowing her servant Margaret to go at large contrary to law.
