re the Mayor yesterday, for examination on an application for his release. Sundry citizens of Manchester, including Messrs. Spencer Hancock, J. B. Vaughn, and L. M. Burfoot, testified that hearing that Richard and Jordan Smith had had a treasonable conversation on the day of the Pawnee excitement, in which the probabilities of theers were gone niggers would have more privileges. Mr. Hancock said that Richard Smith had been in the penitentiary for helping Red Boot Smith run off negroes. Mr. Burfoot, to whom was confided the examination of Smith's papers, found correspondence addressed to him from Ohio, Indiana, New York and Pennsylvania, also, the Constiturs. Smith's store was thought to be a receptacle for stolen goods, as it was filled with all kinds. The Mayor said the letters, &c., might throw some light on a matter pending before him in which the Smiths were concerned, and as Mr. Burfoot promised to send them over for inspection, he would adjourn the case till next Tuesday.
