Tracing a Felony.

--Some ten days since a member of the 3d S. C. regiment stopped at R. C. Hammack's house, near the 2d Market, leaving his carpet bag and contents with the proprietor. That night the baggage room was clandestinely entered, and bag and contents alluded to were taken off. When the soldier was ready to leave the city, he made out a list of his losses, and Mr. Hammack paid the bill. A few days after this David Morgan alias John W. Brooks was found in possession of a bible which was known to be in possession of the soldier, and as he could give no satisfactory account as to how he came by it, he was handed over to the police. yesterday the accused had a partial hearing before the Mayor, and was then committed. As soon as the owner of the bible can be ascertained, he will be summoned here to identify it.
