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.
