Postponed. --The examination of Wm. H. Travis, charged with shooting his wife, was again deferred by the Mayor on Saturday last till next Friday, on account of the inability of Mrs. T. to appear and testify. Her physicians represent her as improving rapidly, and thought by that time she would be able to go out. Christian Burgan was arraigned on the charge of receiving three bags of corn from a negro, knowing the same to have been stolen. A witness testified that the negro had taken it from the Government stables at Bacon's Quarter Branch. The Mayor continued the case till Monday, and bailed the accused in the sum of $500 to appear and answer. Thomas Bird, a free negro, arrested for stealing a horse, will undergo an examination on Saturday. Mr. George Dabney Wootten, counsel for Bird, made an earnest appeal to His Honor to bail his client; he was confident of proving the negro's innocence, and did not see why he should not be permitted to go at large till the trial.
