M. Krakar, upon the the charge of giving false lists to the Collector of the War Taxes in his district, was examined on yesterday before Alex. H. Sands, a commissioner appointed for that purpose. The accused appeared by Messrs. W. W. Crump and G. A. Myers, his counsel. Pleasant Gentry, Deputy Collector, testified that he called on Krakar, who keeps two stores, on the 23d of October last for his lists, when two lists were furnished him; one of them being for $600; the amount of the other he could not recollect; that he thereupon carried the papers to the office of Mr. C. J. Sinton, the Collector; that he afterwards called upon Krakar again, and he furnished him with a list to the amount of $1,350, which he afterwards increased to $1,560; that upon suspicion of foul play in the returns given, Krakar was arrested.--Several other witnesses were examined, whose testimony corroborated that of the first witness, showing that the suspicious of the Collector were well founded. The acc
Before Commissioner Sands --N. A. Bernstein, charged with uttering and employing a passport to which Maj. Griswold's name had been forged, was examined on yesterday before Alex. H. Sands, one of the Commissioners of the C. S. District Court, and sent on for indictment by the the Grand Jury.--The prisoner was balled in the sum of $3,000 for his appearance. The circumstances of the case are these: Bernstein was stopped by the guard at Piping Tree Ferry, on his way to Westmoreland, and hAlex. H. Sands, one of the Commissioners of the C. S. District Court, and sent on for indictment by the the Grand Jury.--The prisoner was balled in the sum of $3,000 for his appearance. The circumstances of the case are these: Bernstein was stopped by the guard at Piping Tree Ferry, on his way to Westmoreland, and his passport was demanded. The orders of the guard were to let no one pass without Gen. Elzey's permission. The guard stopped B., who had only Major Griswold's pass — B. then offered the sentinel $50 in State money to let him pass, which bribe he accepted, and then arrested and sent him to Richmond. Bernstein said he got the passport from a Jew named Jacobs; that he paid him $600 for it, which was what Jacobs asked. The police are after Jacobs.
derate Government $11,000, and Charles and Francis Dominic, two Frenchmen, who are implicated in the transaction with Foster.--At the hour of 11 o'clock, the time fixed for the examination, the prisoners were brought into the Commissioner's office, in the custody of Deputy Marshals F. W. Bass and Henry Myers. District Attorney P. H. Aylett appeared for the Government, and Judge John S. Caskie acted as counsel for the two Dominics in the place of A Judson Crane, Esq., who was sick; while Alex. H. Sands, Esq. was employed as counsel for Foster. Soon after the arrival of the parties, the District Attorney moved for a postponement of the trial, on the ground of the absence of an important witness. Mr. James McClelland. an officer of the Government. In the event of an adjournment of the case, in consequence of the non attendance of this witness, an argument of some length was indulged in by the prisoners' counsel in advocacy of bail for them till an examination was had, while the prosec
he figure "$1," which is in the centre of a circle in the upper end of the right hand side of the note. The word "one" in the middle of the bill was also rubbed out, and "ten" inserted so as to make it read "ten dollars." This was very badly done, the word "ten" which had been substituted for "one" being in much larger letters than those of the word "dollars." Take it all in all the alterations were miserably executed, and were not at all calculated to deceive the most unobservant. An examination took place before Commissioner Alex. H. Sands on Saturday morning, when it was proven that Keys positively stated when he sold it to Mrs. Edwards, that the note was a good one. The order from Lieut. V. Bossieux, delivering the prisoner up to the authorities, sets forth that he is a very bad character generally, and deserves the severest punishment. At the conclusion of the examination, Keys was remanded for indictment by the Grand Jury of the Confederate Court on the 11th of April next.
Admitted to bail. --George W. Lurty, arrested some time since, charged with aiding to obtain money from the Government on forged orders claiming remuneration for horses lost in the military service, and who had been sent on by Commissioner Sands for indictment by the grand Jury of the C. S. District Court has been admitted to bail and released from confinement. We learn that the offence which he has been guilty of has been decided to be simply a misdemeanor, and the bail required of him, which was originally set down at $8,000, was reduced to the sum of $3,000.
Conviction of Irvine. --The trial of James M. D. Irvine, indicted for forging the name of George W Finley to an order for commutation of raucous and drawing the amount from Captain John H Wayt, Confederate States paymaster, consumed the whole time of Judge Lyons's Court yesterday — for the defence Messrs. John S. Caskie and Alex. H. Sands, and Littleton Tazewell for the Commonwealth. At half-past 7 o'clock the argument for the prosecution closed, and the case was submitted to the jury, who, after a retirement of three quarters of an hour, returned into Court with a verdict of guilty, assessing his punishment at two years confinement in the penitentiary, but unanimously recommending him for Executive clemency.
