--The case of Thomas H. S. Boyd
, indicted for obtaining $1,300 upon a forged order for house rent, given in the name of J. W. Ellison
, was tried before Judge Lyons
The jury having the matter under consideration failed to find the prisoner guilty of actual forgery, inasmuch as he (Boyd
) did not sign the actual name of the owner of the house to the order for rent; but they came to the conclusion that he was guilty of an attempt to commit a larceny, and upon that charge he was convicted and sentenced to confinement in the city jail for twelve months.
In the matter of the writ of habeas corpus
awarded upon the petition of John Munn
, claiming the right to bail, (he having been refused that privilege by the Mayor
when sent on recently for running persons through our lines, the Judge
heard the argument of the prisoner's counsel, and thereupon agreed to the prayer of the petitioner and admitted him to bail in the sum of $2,000.
