Humbugs Court.

--Wm. H. Curtis, a notorious Richmond thief, was put upon trial for stealing a horse, saddle, and bridle from Jno A. Ruel, on the 15th of August last. After an examination and argument of counsel the case was given to the jury, who returned in a short time with a verdict of guilty, and the accused was sent to the Penitentiary for five years.

The evidence and argument in the case of Michael Harrington, for receiving stolen money, knowing the same to be obtained illegally, was heard before Judge Lyons yesterday, and at a late hour submitted to the jury, who returned with a verdict of not guilty, and the prisoner was discharged.

After some further business, at 5 o'clock the Court adjourned till this morning.
