Bpforo Suited Statt« CommUaluoer Smith yesterday afternoon Charles Rickards, a white man, wu given a preliminary hearing charged with opening letter, aridreased to Clayton Karl, and old colored mau. United. State* District Attorney John C. Patterson conducted the lMerlng by special request, and It was ahown that Rlchar '* and Karl had effected a partnership lor burning char coal near Greenwood, this State, on Janu ary 6, 1881, Ear| furntahlng the manual labor and Ktpkardh'eoadactlng the business management. Earl claimed that bin partner appropriated a letter addn-Med to him personally from the Betts Machine Company, of this city, dated January 9, 1«83, and after read log It tent him (B«rl) the empty envelope by a messenger, Thomas Green. Ten days afterwards the Bett« Machine Company seut Earl a postal, asking him why he had not answered the letter, when Earl concluded that the letter had been takei. by Richards. Both card and envel the ones designated in Ureen testified that he carried an empty en velope from the defendant to the complain ant, but said that Richards had instructed him to tell Earl that a letter had been re eeived from the Hailao A Hollingsworth Co. asking the price of some charcoal, and that Earl should furnish the reply, but the witness was unable to name when Rickards gave him the envelop« with the name of the firm on the upper left hand corner. The envelope was o! a buff, while ihe one shown by Earl was white. Part of the above testimony ted by Samuel Johnson, Ri kardson, postmaster at Greenwood, testified that all letters address'd to the firm of Rickards & Earl, he gave to Klckarda, but never any addresed personal ly to Earl. Alter «xamtnlng the postal carefully Dis riet Attorney Pallet son noticed a discrepancy and to a direct ques tion Earl testified that the pa tn rs lip was formed in the early ptrt of ISIS an 1 th it be had had no acquaintance with Rickards before. Mr. Pa*ter*ou then showed (hat the postal card in queatiou wm dsted -Liuuiry 19,1842, a 1 most a ship was formed Beits Machine Company also produced a certified copy from the firms letter book of the letter mentioned on llie postal card which he admitted hiving written which was alleged to have heeu taken by Rickard", which was daUd January U, 188-. Mr. Patterson then reviewed the rase showing the complainant to be a perjurer and unworthy of the slightest credence as to truthfulness. At 4.30 o'clock tile case was adjourned until this morning when it was dismissed without taking further teatl mony. Earl Is a well known character In this neighborhood and fu Christlaua Village, where he lives. He has appeared as the de fendant In cases of litigation before aud a few years ago was almost constantly In the United States Court trying to push trurapted up cases against farmers in hts vicinity who he accused of steailug articles ot various kinds from him. During Lewis R. Armstrongs term as Sheriff, Earl was whipped with 20 lasher, having been found guilty of the larceny of some corn from a neighbor. He is a hard case and has time and again been proved a perjurer of the worst kind. As he was leaving the court yester day he was stopped by George Willey, a constable from Greenwood, who attempted to arrest hlm ou s charge of threatening to shoot Rickards and using other threatening language. Notwithstanding the tact that the constable was aided by Richards, Johu sou, Green and others he was unable to move Earl, who is a largo and powerful man, although well advanced In years. Four policemen at last made their appear ance aud at laal succeeded, with hard work, Id lauding the stubborn prisoner iu the City Hall, where he was accommodated witti lodging and this morning was taken to Greenwood by two coustables where he will be given a hearing. were produced as charge and Tboe. opo the ember the firms corrobora ami William year before the partuer William Bells, ol he LOCAL LACONICS.

A QdmMo of J naiad ictloa HlHH hj a a is Counsel for .John Dunn. The Municipal Court room waa crowded last evening by about R00 persons,anxious to hear the testimony in the case of Sergeant McConnell vs. George Brown, Goorge North and William Lawler, the three young men accused of having commuted the assault upon McConnell, in Spring alley on Tues day. They were disappointed, however, as the case was postponed until Monday, Mayor Wales reporting that tha Sergeant would be unable to leaf« tha house until that day. Emma Hopkins, colored was fined $0 and coats for drunkenness aud disorderly con duct. There being no further business Judgo- Cummins adjourned the court until this morn ng when 1. C. Grub/ Esq., couuael for John M. Dunn, proprie/ ,r of the Swan Hotel, chanted with selling Liquor ou Sunday, made a lengthy argument upon bis motion to quash the information on the v round that the Municipal Court bad not constitutional Jurisdiction in the case aud quoted from the constitution of the State and the new city charter to prove the cor rectness of his view. He held that the Municipal Court was specially created to try eases as Enumerated In section H5, and assumed that If it had jurisdiction over cases like the one In question the court would be divested of Just that amount of power but as the Jurisdiction of this Court was not clearly defined It was evident that the framers of the law did not Intend the Munlelpal Court to have sole aud final Juris diction In cases of thL kind. The Court, he hehl, had authority to commit peraous having a license, charged with telling liquor on Saturday to a higher court, hut that it had uo authority to flue and finally dispose of them, as cases of this kind should be tried by a jury. Deputy Attorney-Genera) Turner argued that the court was created with extraordi nary power, and was the only court that cor Id try and dispose of cases without indictment of trial by Jury. A mau who held a license was allowed to sell liquor according to law ami as a license did not say that a man could sell on Sunday it was apparent to him that fn so doing he sold without a license and could be tried by this court as section 15 gave the Judge lK)wer to try cases where liquor was sold without a license Mr. Grubb produced a Stub* license,and po'nted out the time speci fied was one year and that It did uotapecily on w' at particular day liquor should or should not be sold. The question introduced being one of considerable importance Judge Cura min« reterved his decision until Thurs day next. • he case of Willem Wittaker, charged with violating a city ordinance in building a frame building within 50 leet of an adjotn in/ dwelling, wa* postponed until Saturday n xt, and will probably be compromised, as Wittaker has signified his willingness to erect a hrlek building fu accordance with the provis on of the ordinance. c BEUPKNINU SEKTIUEÜ.
