Horses stolen. --On Wednesday evening last, the stables of Mr. James Lyons, adjacent to his residence, at the corner of Foushee and Franklin streets, were broken into and a pair of valuable horses stolen therefrom. They were valued by the owner at five hundred dollars each.
Stolen horses Recovered. --On Wednesday evening of last week the stable of Mr. James Lyons, of this city, was broken open and two valuable horses stolen therefrom. A day or two since, Judge William H. Lyons heard that the horses had been taken to Petersburg, and at once started in pursuit. After diligent search, he found them in that city in possession of a negro man, who, on being charged with the crime of stealing them, confessed his guilt and was taken, into custody. The Judge took the horses in charge, and was about having them started for Richmond, when, to his surprise, he was approached by certain parties, who claimed them as Government property. He, however, had little difficulty in establishing his title to the animals, and they were taken to the depot for transportation to the owner's stable. The Judge returned home on Tuesday evening, well satisfied with his exploit in the detective line.

A Complicated case. --Judge McEntee, in the Provost Court, was engaged nearly the whole of yesterday in the investigation of a charge against seven negroes of stealing two horses from Mr. James Lyons on the 7th of December. The case was not disposed of, but will be resumed to-day. It was necessary to inflict an amount of corporeal punishment upon one of the number, George Tripp, a penitentiary convict, to extort the truth from him. Another of the party, named Hiram Harris, came to Judge McEntee's office on Tuesday and gave himself up, voluntarily stating that he received the horses from Tripp, took them to Petersburg and offered them for sale. The case is one which presents many difficulties, yet it is believed that the whole seven were in some way connected with the theft.
