After argument by tho counsel the jury took the case in their charge and after an hour's deliberation returned a ve:d ct of "guilty." Plunkett was sentenced to pay $15 and cost*'. The next case was State u. Elias Williams, negro. Breaking and enter ing the house of John Turner in Chris tiana Hundred, on the 19th of October last, und stealing a pair of boots, a watch and a single barrelled shot gun. The prisoner engineered his defense with considerable skill. Accounting for the boots and the watch but failed to account for the possession of the gun and tlio jury found him "guilty" of larceny of the gun. Tho rase of AVm. C. Englan.l anil . Thomas TituB indicted for firingCruni Hxh's stalilc Fob 13th last, thou came up. Messrs. Loro and Patterson for the defendants. Tho following jury was empanelled : Levi Huggins, Henry U. Walters, Al fred D. Pierce, Henry H. Woodheepcr, George J. Caslio,Peter Meggett, James Bhakespcare, James T Blialicrosa, Wir. D. Mullen, Joseph II. llunson, Win Clark and Samuel Frizzle, The Deputy Attorney General open ed the case by citing the statute on the cas» by stating the nature of the of fen •« for which tmrprisoners were In ilie.erl and read the !»ws ou the sub ject from 128Ut chapter and 3rd Sec tion of the Revised Code. he prisoners arc indicted on two counts—one for burning and lltu other for firing. It is necessary that notice should lie taken of one fact in connec tion with tiiis case—that is, that there are indictments in several more cases of fires to lie brought to the attention of lids court, and the evidence in this cast will connect them together more or lass closely. The Deputy Attorney General then proceeded to state that in the case now betöre them they would show that on th : night the 13:1» of February Hit so prisoners were together with another who wiil be produced upon whose test!money the defense will attempt to impeach and we shall trace them step by step. We ahull show that England Moore and Titus wein together on 3d street early that evening, that from thence they went towards the railroad and stopped in it a saloon, that they were at Fell rerlmch's saloon when the lire broke oui in French street, that they were at tin saloon at Gib and Maikct when the liri broke out in Orange street above •ith. From tlicr.ci we will follow them to Crumlish's stable tracing them nil the way along. Thu reason why I call your attention this towlmt wij shall prove is because the princi forthe State is one whose testimony will be severely attacked.— This witnessed testimony the Htatc proposes to corroborate aim! if we suc ceed wo shall ask fora verdict at your hands.
