t provided for by Confederate statute law, was cognizable by State law — that of Virginia and the Confederacy were concurrent. The Mayor said he did not recognize Commissioner Watson as an examining court. In his opinion, he could not deprive the State of jurisdiction over offences against the law of Virginia.
