--Virginia Wilkinson, indicted for feloniously receiving stolen goods, knowing them to have been stolen, was put upon trial, and after an examination of witnesses and argument of counsel, the case was given to the jury, who, after a short retirement, returned into the Court room with a verdict of guilty, assessing her punishment at one year in the penitentiary, whereupon she was remanded to the custody of the Sergeant.

Thomas Smith and James Kennedy, jointly charged with grand larceny, were tried, found guilty, and sentenced to the penitentiary for three years.

The Court then adjourned till ten o'clock this morning.
