Horse stealing.

--James H. Miller, a resident of this city, was before the Mayor yesterday to answer the charge of having in his possession a horse believed to have been stolen from the army. The evidence elicited showed that Miller had been serving as temporary substitute in the Albemarle Artillery; that the horse belonged to that company; that a young man named Spicer, who had deserted from that company, had taken off a sorrel horse; that Miller and Spicer came to the city together; that the horse found in Miller's possession had had the letter "C" branded on him since he left camp, to make it appear that he had been condemned; and that Spicer had claimed the horse as his, and had said he did not intend to return to camp. To get other witnesses from the army, the investigation was adjourned until the 18th instant, and the prisoner remanded.
