eather did not belong to Anderson & Co., but was some which he had been requested to tan for a lady of his acquaintance. The two Williams, slaves of Samuel Fauntleroy and A. F. Gooch, charged with entering in the night time the house of Mrs. Mary Harris, and stealing therefrom two bombazine dresses, and whose case has been put off half a dozen times, was yesterday disposed of by referring the matter to the Hustings Court. It will be recollected that these negroes, in company with another who has succeeded in eluding arrest, were caught by Mrs. Harris while in her house in the act of stealing, and that in their flight they left behind three pairs of shoes, one hat, a market, a sabra, a crowbar, and a step ladder. A charge was preferred against Patrick Boyls, Patrick Macarthy, Daniel Eagan, white, and Robert, a slave, of stealing $126 worth of wood from Richard Relue. The wood alleged to have been stolen was some bought by Mr R from B R Duval, out and corded in his woods in C

Sentenced to be hung. --William, slave of Samuel Fauntleroy, charged with breaking into the house of Mrs. Mary Harris some weeks since, in the night time, and stealing several ladies' dresses, valued at five hundred dollars, was tried before the Hustings Court of Magistrates yesterday, and the Court in their opinion deeming him guilty of grand larceny, sentenced him to be hung on Friday, the 19th day of August. His value was assessed at $3,000. Another negro, of the same name, slave of Mrs. Maria Gooch, charged with being implicated in the robbery, was acquitted.
rdon a negro named William, slave of Mrs. Fauntleroy, convicted some time since by the Hustings Court of burglariously entering in the night time the house of Mrs Mary Harris, and sentenced to be hung for the offence. The evidence of burglary and robbery against him was distinctly made out before the Court of Magistrates by Mrs HaMrs Harris herself, who saw him in her passage rummaging in her wardrobe, which was also broken open. The negro had a candle in his hand, by the light of which she was enabled to fully scan his features, and therefore identified him as soon as he was arrested. It will be recollected that circumstances which afterwards developed themselves indicated that there were two others engaged in the transaction, as outside of Mrs. Harris's door, after the thieves were frightened off, there were found three pairs of negro shoes, one loaded musket, an old sabre, and a heavy iron crow bar. One other negro besides the condemned was arrested at the same time, but the evidence
Foreign Miscellany. The first Christian church built in Japan since the treaty made with Mr. Harris was by the Roman Catholics. This is a neat and conspicuous building of white stucco; it is erected on ground given for the purpose by the French Minister. Lord Palmerston has consented to become the President of the South of England Literary and Philosophical Society, which has been established in connection with the Hartley Institute at Southampton. From a parliamentary return, it appears that the militia established in England and Wales for the year 1863 consisted of 3,053 officers, 3,324 noncommissioned officers, and 83,460 privates.

Lewis, slave of Lucy Phillips, and Reuben, slave of John T. Miller, concerned in conniving at and aiding in the escape of Leslie, slave of Robert H. Davis, were examined, and after hearing the evidence and remarks of counsel, the justices discharged Reuben, but considered Lewis guilty of the offence, and ordered him thirty-nine lashes, and directed that he should then be sold beyond the limits of the Confederacy. Thomas Walker, a free negro, charged with breaking into the house of Mrs. Mary Harris, on the 29th of June last, and stealing two ladies' dresses, was discharged. George Drew, a free negro, charged with stealing four cows from Dr. F. H. Deane, and feloniously receiving the same, knowing them to be stolen, was found guilty of grand larceny, and ordered to be sold into slavery.

His case was field for further consideration. A youthful member of Captain Ward's militia company, named J. J. Lewis, was charged with stealing a pair of shoes from a soldier temporarily quartered at the "Soldiers' Home," on Seventh and Cary streets. The complainant not appearing, he was delivered up to his captain. Mary Harris, a free negro, was ordered to be whipped for stealing a silk dress and basquine, the property of J. S. B. Tinsley; Harry, slave of William Sheppard, but supposed to be a runaway, was treated in a similar manner for stealing a basket of corn from a market woman. George B. Wright, charged with buying a lot of peaches in the First Market to sell again, and Pleasant Gentry, charged with purchasing Irish potatoes in the same place for a similar purpose, during interdicted hours, were each
Execution Postponed. --Governor Smith has granted a further respite in the case of William, slave of Samuel Fauntleroy, who was to have been hung yesterday morning for the crime of burglary, committed at the dwelling of Mrs. Mary Harris, on Grace street, between Eighteenth and Nineteenth--the negro and an accomplice entering the house armed with a loaded gun, a knife and a sword, ready to murder if it had been necessary to the accomplishment of their purpose. The message from the Governor was not received by the City Sergeant till a few minutes before it was time for the condemned man to be taken from the jail and after the preacher had united with him in prayer for the salvation of his soul. The execution has been deferred till the 21st of October, at which time another negro named Ben, slave of John H. Gentry, convicted or breaking into and robbing James T. Butler & Co.'s store, is also to be hung. As at present contemplated, they will then be both hung together.

The execution to day. --Between the hours of 10 o'clock A. M. and 2 o'clock P. M. to-day, a double execution of two negroes will take place at the foot of the Poor-House hill, in the neighborhood of Victor's mill. The parties to be hung are William, slave of Samuel S. Fauntleroy, of Goochland, charged with breaking into the house of Mrs. Mary Harris, in the lower part of the city, and stealing sundry articles of wearing apparel, and Ben, slave of John H. Gentry, charged with burglariously entering the store of James T. Butler & Co., on Cary street, and stealing a large lot of boots and shoes. William was convicted and sentenced by the Hustings Court some months since, but Executive clemency was granted him in consequence of an earnest petition, numerously signed, which was sent to the Governor. Since the conviction and sentence of Ben, he has made a full confession of his guilt, the mode of the robbery, &c. The execution will take place without doubt, as we learn the Governor
