Conviction and pardon.

--The only business of public interest disposed of in Judge Lyons's Court on yesterday was the trial of Joshua Owings, indicted for grand larceny. After examination of witnesses and argument of counsel, the case was placed in the hands of the jury, who brought in a verdict of guilty, and assessed his punishment at one year's confinement in the penitentiary.

Before the removal of the prisoner from the court-room to jail, Governor Smith granted him a pardon, conditioned upon his forthwith joining the army.
