Police for Manchester and Chesterfield.

The County Court of Chesterfield decided on Monday last, to organize a police corps for the county, and appointed a committee of two from each magisterial district to make recommendations to the Court. It was ordered that forty be the number appointed for the magisterial district embracing Manchester. In most of the other districts, the number was fixed at twenty-four, twenty being the smallest number for any district. The members of this corps are to be selected with reference to their military experience, it being the object of the Court to secure a bold and efficient organization for the protection of the county. So we learn from the Petersburg Express.
