Pardoned by the President. --The following parties, who have been under sentence of death for desertion, were yesterday by the President and sent to their command: J C Chiles and C M Nixon, members of the 1st Texas regiment. For sometime back, while these men were in doubt with regard to their fate, they were very despondent, and had little or nothing to say to anybody; but yesterday, when informed of the action of His Excellency in the matter, they evidenced the greatest gratification and wept for joy. Nothing could have been more gratifying to beheld than the alacrity with which they embraced the order to rejoin their command, and tears were shed by them as they marched past the prison officers, who had extended to them every indulgence in their power during the protracted confinement which they had undergone. A determination to be better soldiers in future was expressed by them, and we doubt not that the resolution will be carried out to the very letter.
military overcoat, was arrested yesterday afternoon and committed to the upper station-house by Chief-of-Police Reuben T. Seal and officer Griffin on the charge of stealing two pieces of dry goods, valued at nine hundred dollars, the property of Chiles & Chenery. The accused, it is said, had visited the same store twice before in the morning; but, his conduct exciting suspicion on the third visit, preparations having previously been made for his arrest, he was arrested by the officers above nasame person who was admitted to bail by the Mayor, a few days since, to answer indictment by the Grand Jury of the Hustings Court for the offence of stealing a piece of cassimere from Messrs. Beers & Spillman. The mode of stealing the goods from Chiles & Chenery was identically the same as that practiced upon Beers & Spillman — that is, buttoning up his plunder under an overcoat, while the attention of the occupants of the store was turned in another direction. An investigation will take place

Mayor's court. --On Saturday the following cases claimed the attention of the Mayor: James E. Robertson, the young man noticed in our Saturday's issue as having been arrested on the charge of stealing two pieces of dry goods from Messrs. Chiles & Chenery, was up for a hearing. A member of the firm testified that the accused came to the store twice that morning before committing the theft; that on his third visit he slipped the goods under his overcoat, and was in the act of leaving, when a servant in the employ of the witness called attention to his conduct; whereupon the prisoner was taken to the back part of the store and searched. The stolen goods were found buttoned up under his overcoat. Robertson was sent on for indictment by the Grand Jury. Before leaving the bar, Robertson was again arraigned on the charge of stealing a piece of light cassimere goods from the store of Alfred Tolleson. Officer Jenkins testified that, while executing a search warrant in the pr

A charge was preferred against Wm. Clayton of stealing two hundred and fifty dollars in State bank notes from Mrs. Crowder; but the evidence being insufficient to convict him of the offence, he was discharged. John and Andrew, negroes, charged with stealing a piece of calico from Chiles & Chenery. The value of the goods being assessed under twenty dollars, it was decided that their offence was that of petit larceny, and the accused were punished accordingly. Ella, slave of James A. Patterson, charged with setting fire to the dwelling-house of J. C. Courtney, was again before the court. The Mayor decided that, as the amount of property destroyed did not reach twenty dollars, her offence was a misdemeanor, and thereupon ordered her to be whipped to the extent of the la
to this city, and Major Gibbes suspecting two men who sat behind him, answering the description of the accused, they were subsequently arrested. When confronted before the Mayor yesterday by Major Gibbes, that gentleman was unable to identify them as the parties who traveled to this city in company with him. The Mayor committed the prisoners to jail until this morning, when he will decide what to do with them. John and Andrew, free negroes, charged with stealing a piece of calico from Chiles & Chenery, valued at fifteen dollars in specie, were ordered to be whipped.

She was turned over to the custody of officer Moore, who took her home

Heavy Robbery. --Between nine and ten o'clock on Monday night, the dry goods store of Chiles & Chenery, on the corner of Broad and Sixth streets, was broken into and robbed of about twenty thousand dollars' worth of goods. Included in the lot stolen were twenty pieces of fine calico, ten pieces of which were subsequently found in the rear alley by the watch, who detected the rogues (supposed to be two negroes), as they were leaving the store, and gave them chase. Entrance to the store was gained by first getting into the coal cellar and then bursting open the door which leads up the steps thereto. This makes the sixth time this firm has been robbed within the past few years, and each time the thieves have gotten in the same way.
