Stolen horse recovered. --On the night of the 12th of May a valuable horse was stolen from Capt. Wm. R. Irby, of Hanover county. From that time nothing was heard of the animal till Saturday last, when Mr. John L. Woodson saw it hitched to a wagon on Broad street, and driven by Mrs. Pearman.

Pearman proved that he purchased the animal of Geo. Butler, formerly a member of company D, 13th Virginia infantry, and paid a fair price for him. With these facts Pearman was discharged and the horse turned over to Capt. Irby.
