--The appointment of C. S. Commissioner
has recently been conferred upon Mr. Edward Y. Cannon
, of this city.
This makes three commissioners required to conduct preliminary examinations of offences committed against the Confederacy
It has not unfrequently happened that the two commissioners heretofore acting have had cases pending before them at the same time, and from the increased number of crimes which are being perpetrated daily, we should not be surprise to find all three of these functionaries regularly engaged.
