--The case of Jesse, slave of Wm. W. Jones
, mentioned by us yesterday as having been arrested for stealing four pairs of shoes from Mr. James Bolton
, was brought up before this Court yesterday morning; but it appearing that several of Jesse's accomplices in the theft were still at large, he was committed to jail for future investigation.
The case of R. L. Saunders
, the Hollywood Cemetery
thief, was also postponed because of the non appearance of Mr. James Ryon
, the principal witness; who arrested Saunders
whilst he was in the act of breaking a lock from an enclosure in the cemetery.--The Mayor
fined Mr. Ryon
ten dollars for his falling to appear.
Frank, a young negro fellow, slave of Mr. Reuben Ragland
, of Petersburg
, was charged with attempting to run off to the Yankees
Frank had been arrested and sent into Court by order of Major Carrington
, Provost Marshal
, for attempting to obtain a passport to go to Charles City
on a pass that he had written himself.
He had come over from Petersburg
by permission of his master to see his mother.
He was committed to jail as a runaway.
was charged with stealing three pigs from Edward Vickers
It appeared that Mr. Vickers
had hired Mr. Cabler
's wagon to haul three pigs from Rocketts
up town, but falling out with the negro driver about the price to be paid for the trip, had beat him. As the wagon with the pigs passed up Main street, after the difficulty, the negro stopped at Mr. Cabler
's store and told him the circumstances, when the latter took possession of the pigs until Vickers
should settle, and also threatened to him. Mr. Cabler
was required to give security in $500 to keep the peace, and the pigs were delivered to Mr. Vickers
