Griffin, the "Tim Morris" of the Iron-clad Opera Troupe, who, along with several others of the Troupe, was taken by the conscript officer and carried to camp Lee, had himself brought before judge Lyons last Saturday on a habeas corpus, alleging that be being beyond the conscript age was if age at the present time. Another witness testified that he had seen him an infant in arms in 1818.--Officer Chalkley, on the contrary, stated that he had known Griffin all his life, and had always considered him younger than himself, and that he himself was only forty five. In the absence of important witnesses for the Govecer Chalkley, on the contrary, stated that he had known Griffin all his life, and had always considered him younger than himself, and that he himself was only forty five. In the absence of important witnesses for the Government, the case was continued till to-day, and Griffin remanded to the custody of the conscript officer.
Not heard from. --Joseph W. Grilling, alias Tim Morris, the Ethiopian Iron-Clad, has never been seen or heard from since his habeas corpus case was continued on Saturday. He did not appear Monday, nor again yesterday, on which last occasion the enrolling officer made return to Judge Lyons that Griffin could not be found, that he had leave of absence till last Sunday morning, when he failed to report, and that he was believed to have deserted. Under these circumstances the Judge dismissed the habeas corpus case.
the family, broke into the dwelling-house of Chas. Echardt, on Broad street, above 1st, and stole from a bureau $42 in silver, $10 in gold, $100 in bank notes, $200 in city of Richmond notes, and about $2,000 in five dollar Confederate Treasury notes. They carried the stolen money to Mrs. Caroline Abrams, in Screamersville, and there counted and divided it amongst themselves. After they had left her house Mrs. Abrams informed officer Kelly of the facts, and he, with the assistance of officers Griffin and Jenkins, hunted up and arrested both of the rogues. The boys confessed the theft, and told where they had hidden the money. They were taken to the places indicated by themselves, and there most of the money was found.--Minter had buried his share, amounting to $1, 186.39, in his father's carpenter shop.--Green had secreted his, amounting to $1,359, in a pile of old rags under a counter in his mother's shop, on Broad street, two doors from Echardt's. The Mayor sent both boys o
Hen Roost robbers. --On Saturday night the hen house of Mr. Alex. Garrett, on Marshall street, near Adams, was broken into and robbed of all his chickens. Several other hen roosts in the same neighborhood were also visited by them. Yesterday morning officers Griffin and Moore, receiving information leading them to suspect where the thieves could be found, entered a house on Marshall street, near St. James's Church, and there found and arrested five negro men. On searching the house they found sixteen fowls that had just been picked, a grain bag full of feathers, a lot of crowbars, and other burglars' tools, and in a bucket a dozen or more eggs taken from the chickens. There was also in the house five new felt hats, a jacket containing two leaded pistols, and a military great coat much smeared with blood. The articles enumerated and the negroes were carried to the watch house.--We must not omit to mention that one of the jimmies corresponded exactly with the dents on a hen-hou
Chicken thieves. --John, slave of Miss Julia Watkins; Phillip, slave of Dr. Hancock; Daniel, slave of Mrs. Caroline Garnett; William, slave of Mr. Marcellus Starke; and George, slave of Mr. John C. Hobsen, were before the Mayor yesterday morning, charged with stealing thirteen chickens from a negro named Shadrack. These negroes seem to have been a regularly organized band of chicken thieves, doing business on a large scale. They were caught by officers Griffin and Moore on Sunday together in a house on Marshall street, near St. James Church. In the house were found Shadrack's chickens in the act of being picked and dressed, a revolver and a long double-barrel pistol, both heavily loaded; a large assortment of burglar's tools, a grain bag of feathers, and a long military great coat much besmeared with blood. One of the crow bars fitted into the dints in the door of Shadrack's hen house, which had been broken open. In an out house in the yard was found about a bushel of chicke

Mr. Mc without hesitation gave the negro the money, but on seeing Miss Johnson learned that she had never sent for any money, and that the whole story was a fabrication. Dolly Harris, a free negro, was charged with stealing clothing from Nicholas Carroll. An armful of clothing of various descriptions, was brought into court by the police who had arrested Dolly, and Carroll claimed it all, and also a small amount of silver and copper coin found in her possession. Some of the clothing was proved by white witnesses to belong to the negro, and one pair of black pants were marked J. C. Hobson. The case was continued. John Collins was fined ten dollars for trading with negroes without the consent of their owners. Billy Jenkins, a free negro, who had been arrested in the street by officer Griffin with two pieces of bacon, of which he could give no satisfactory account, was ordered to be whipped.
