were brought into Court, who it was believed would criminate him; but they knew nothing in the world against him, or, if they did, they managed with admirable skill to keep it to themselves. Solomon, slave of John Sledd, and John Whitlock, a free negro, were charged with stealing a box of butter from Bartholomew Hill. It appeared that Mr. Hill was a market man, and on Saturday morning, while Whitlock engaged him in conversation, Solomon caught up a small box of butter and ran off. Officer Griffin, who witnessed the whole affair, ran after Solomon and arrested him. The negroes were ordered to be whipped. William, slave of Wm. Barrett, war ordered to be whipped for stealing chickens. Wm. H. Harvey and Wm. H. Reed were charged — the former with assaulting, the latter with threatening to assault, Joseph H. Moore. It appeared that Moore, who holds some position of authority in the Second Auditor's Office of the Confederate Treasury Department, lodged with the head of the
Staples called to him and said, "There are only $16 here, you own me four more," Seeing Mr. Tyler, the clerk of the market, standing by, he (Davis) requested him to count the money, when that gentleman, as he thought, very reluctantly replied that there was $20. On again starting off with the fish in his possession, Staples accosted him (Davis) with the remark, "You have taken the advantage of me," at the same time tearing up the notes and throwing them under his feet.--For the defence, officer Griffin and Mr. Tyler, the clerk of the market, testified that Staples had proclaimed it in Davis's presence that he could received nothing for his fish but the new issue. Davis took a bunch of fish from his (S.'s) cart and inquired the price. "Twenty dollars," was the reply, whereupon D. put down four $5 bills. Staples then told him he could not take the fives for more than four dollars each. Upon D. Insisting that he had paid $20, S. remarked that he would be governed by what Mr. Tyler wou
From Texas. Houston, Texas, May 13th, via Summit, May 28. --Col Griffin, with a force of 200 sharpshooters and a battery of artillery, surprised two gunboats, the Granite City, No. 8, iron-plated; and the Wave, No. 8, tin-clad, in Calcosia Pass, on May 6th.--We captured both. The Yankees had to send the boats a core to surrender. There were 160 prisoners captured, 16 fine cannon, and no end of stores. On the 9th, a Yankee sailboat was captured at Calcosia, by Major McReynolds. Affairs in Northern Mexico all quiet. On the 23d of April the Yankees landed a force of 300 at Lavaca and set fire to the town. Several blocks of buildings were consumed.
Cruelly beaten. --A small negro girl, belonging to E. J. Bagby, was found by officer Griffin lying in the street, near the market-house. She had been most cruelly beaten by some one, and was also suffering from an attack of pneumonia. She was lodged in the station-house and
th shop, and it is presumed that they finished their work of destruction by burning all the buildings in the place. At the same time skirmishing was going on between Ashland and Wickham's farm, and we regret to hear a report that Lieutenant Colonel Brown, of the Maryland Line, was shot through the head and killed. From the Southside. Comparative quiet prevails along our lines in Chesterfield county. A sharp skirmish took place on Tuesday on the south bank of the Appomattox, in Prince George county, between a portion of General Dearing's command and a force of the enemy's "nigger" troops. The enemy were strongly entrenched, with their right flank protected by gunboats, two of which moved up and participated in the fight. Our casualties were four killed and nine wounded--among the former, Lieutenant Tomlinson, of the 7th Confederate cavalry, and among the latter, Lieut. Col. Kennedy, of Col. Griffin's Georgia cavalry. The loss of the enemy was numerically about the same.
eir prices, and general good would ensue to the poorer classes. In conclusion, he made a motion that the whole matter be referred to the Committee on Supplies for the Poor. The subject was further discussed in opposition by Messrs Hill and Griffin, the latter gentleman making a motion that the proposition be laid upon the table. Upon this motion Mr. Walker called for the yeas and nays, which resulted as follows: Yeas--Messrs. Griffin, Randolph, Clopton, Crutchfield, Denoon, EppsMessrs. Griffin, Randolph, Clopton, Crutchfield, Denoon, Epps, Richardson, Stokes and Haskins--9. Nays--Messrs. Walker, Scott and Hill--3. So the motion to lay on the table was adopted. A communication was presented by Mr. Hill from Major Talcott, Superintendent of the Danville railroad, of a character solely concerning that road, and which prudence forbids our making public. A resolution offered by Mr. Crutchfield asking for the continuance for a limited period of the pay of R. J. Crafton, deceased, one of the city watchmen, for the

edloaves of bread was the average yield per barrel. Mr. C. said these facts were established beyond a doubt, and he defied contradiction from those interested. The petition was referred to a special committee, consisting of Messrs Crutchfield, Griffin, and Stokes. A petition was presented by Mr. Glazebrook from Colin Bass, Superintendent of the Virginia Penitentiary, asking that the city furnish to that institution any surplus amount of salt they may have on hand, at the price formerly ae citizens at $2.50 to $3 per pound, whilst we were now compelled to pay six dollars for a vastly inferior article. In his opinion, if something was not done, beef would soon be ten instead of six dollars per pound. A petition offered by Mr. Griffin from Joseph Hall, deputy jailor, asking that he be allowed $1,200 additional for exacting from the prisoners before they are confined in jail every article of value, save clothing, in their possession, was laid on the table.
