Hustings Court.

--There were three criminal trials before Judge Lyons yesterday, resulting as follows:

Michael Galvin, indicted for burglariously entering the house of Mr. Bouis, was arraigned and plead not guilty. After hearing the evidence, the jury decided that Mike had certainly been mistaken in his plea, and sent him to the penitentiary for 3 years.

James Jennings, indicted for grand larceny, plead not guilty. He was convicted of the offence, and sent to the penitentiary for 5 years.

William Pitts, indicted for horse stealing, plead guilty, and the jury concurring in his opinion sent him to the penitentiary for 5 years.

Thomas H. Wilkinson, indicted for having engaged with Wm. Pitts in stealing a horse, was tried and acquitted.
