Henry Christian, a negro boy, charged with petit larceny — stealing one dollar and fifty cents--was found guilty and sent to Castle Thunder for thirty days.

Martin Harvey and Henry Sanford, Twelfth United States Infantry. Charge — drunk and no pass. Guilty, and sent to Castle Thunder for twenty days.

John Lucas, negro, charged with carrying concealed weapons. Guilty, and sent to Castle Thunder for thirty days.

William Grayson, citizen, charged with selling liquor to soldiers. Guilty, and sentenced to pay a fine of twenty-five dollars.

Alexander Bundy, negro, charged with stealing a pair of boots. Guilty, and sentenced to sixty days confinement in Castle Thunder.

Several other cases were called, but owing to the absence of witnesses they were postponed — among them the five negroes charged with stealing Mr. Lyons's horses. This case was postponed until next Wednesday.

Reuben Donald, colored, was charged with stealing a lot of clothing; and the evidence proving his guilt, he was sentenced to one year's confinement in the penitentiary.

Sam Barney, colored, was sent to the penitentiary for one year on conviction of breaking into the store-house of J. C. Smith, on Cary street, and stealing therefrom a lot of rags, &c.
