The Trial of Mr. Jefferson Davis aha in* Postponed.?The following order was issued in the United States District Court yesterday : " The United States vs. Jefferson Dav'is : " Counsel having been heard in this cause for the United States and for tho de fendant, it is now ordered that tho de fendant have leavo to depart henco until Saturday the 2d day of May next, at 10 o'clock in the forenoon of that day, at which day and hour he is required to be and appear personally before this court, according to tho condition of his recog nizance. John C. Underwood, " District Judge. " April 2,1808'." JoDfiE Underwood's grand jury are still hammering away upon indictments. As tho District Attorney and his assistants have been busily engaged for tho last four days and nights in writing out tho indict ments, wo infer that a largo number have been found. We understand that the jury have under consideration the propriety ot indicting all of the United States inspec tors and officers who were on duty at the distilleries that wero stopped for alleged violations of tho internal revenue laws. All of the distilleries in tho third and fourth districts have been closed lor this reason, therefore a largo number of officers will most probably be indicted. Mayor's Court?Mayor Mayo presi ding ? Thursday Morning.?Tho con tinued case of John Delacroix, charged with being disorderly and resisting Rounds man O'Dwyer in tho discharge of his duty, was called up, and again continued until Saturday. John White (colored), charged with stealing some clothing and shoes trom the wife of Charles K. Jones (colored), was set back. llenry Edwards and Moses Page (co lored), charged with stealiug a lot of old iron from Warwick & Barksdale, were dis missed. ? George Parker, charged with assaulting and beating Tiusley, and Tinsley for threatening to assault and beat Parker, wero called up. They had agreed to set tle tho matter, and were dismissed. John Rowe, Sr., and John Rowc, Jr., came up to answer for entering the house of John Laughton, and heating him and his wife. In the absence of witnesses, the case was continued until to-morrow. William Johnson (white), charged with beating John Alexander (colored), was bound over to keep tho peace. John Henry Bell (a nine-year old mu latto bov), charged with snatching a purse from the hand of Mrs. Cornelia Early, was sent on to the Hustings Court of Magis trates. . Henry Smith (colored), charged with stealing two half-boxes of cigars from N. C. Cullen, was sent on. No Court.?There will bo no session of the Mayor's court to-day. The causo of this is that the policemen who are daily summoned before it as witnesses, &C., are needed to preserve order during the negro parade to-day?Captain Poo having been ordered by the military authorities to have the police out in full force. Nkw Suits.?Among the many new suits brought to the May term of the Circuit Court of Richmond, two have been insti tuted against Radical members of the Con vention by attorneys who defended them in cases of felony. After their lawyers had worked to clear them of the charges they refused to pay, and necessitated the bringing of the suits above referred to. One of the parties is ColonelWilliam R. James, who, it will bo remembered, was indicted for malfeasance in office, and tried before tho United States Circuit Court. Judge Gregory defended him and ho was cleared, but he only paid $250 of the $500 promised to the Judge. The other is E. W. Morris, of King Wil liam county, who was cleared by the County Court of Henrico of the chargo of obtaining horses under false pretences. His lawyers also want their pay. Tiie Case of Mr. E. D. Hicks.?Tho continued case of Mr. E. D. Ilicks was called before United States Commissioner Chahoon yesterday. Messrs. N. M. Lee and T. N. Stanley were sworn, and testified that they knew Mr. Hicks ; that bis character was good and that he was to be believed with or without oath. Mr. Stanley, in answer to a question of the counsel of Mr. Hicks whether or not he would believe Lieute nant II. S. Merrill on oath [the Lieutenant bad Hicks arraigned, and is having his character impeachedj, replied, that from what he had heard he would be very doubtful about believing bim on oath, as everybody said he was a very slippery fellow. The testimony of Mr. Richard D. Mitchell was overlooked. On the 4th of Novem ber, 18G7, he testilied that he was well ac quainted with Mr. Ilicks, and would be lieve him with or without an oath. On the 24th of March he testified that he would not believe him on oath where he was interested. Other depositions will be taken to-day. Bailed.?Mr. Metcalf, who was com mitted to the county jail on Tuesday last for being connected with the recent shoot ing affair in Henrico county, yesterday gave bail in sum of $500 for his appear ance before the County Court. Tiie Theatre, wo learn, has been sold to Monsieur Paul, ex-Consul of this city, for $00,000. Monsieur PauLintyids fitting it up in superb style. TTe return thanks to Turner for Put nam's Magazine for April?the best of the northern monthlies, Brutal Murder in' Powhatan* County. The particulars of a most brutal murder in Powhatan county, a few miles from Powhatan station on tho Richmond and Danville railroad, have just reached us. The victim was Mr. John White, an esti mable citizen, aged forty-nine years, whose body was found on tho 2fith ultimo, on his own farm, with the marks of five bullet holes on various portions of his person, and upon the head the impression of a blow from some murderous weapon, dealt by a powerful hand. The murder is sup posed to have been committed by some villains whom Mr. White had detected stealing hogs, as he left homo on the morn ing of the day on which his lifeless body was found to search the woods in the di rection in which they had been ranging. From these woods shots were heard during the day. On Wednesday last a gentleman from the county came to tho city and saw General Schofield, and asked full authority to pursue a most vigorous search of all suspected parties and premises. The per mission was granted. Latest advices state that the search is prosecuted with the ut most diligence and determination, but no arrest had been made. Titiiabi.es in Clay Ward.?The assess ment of tithables in Clay Ward ha^ been completed, and the result is as follows : "White tithables 790 Black tithables 3o5 This result, compared with tho regis tered, is in keeping with that iu other wards. The negro tithables are groaily less than the negroes registered, while the white tithables exceed tho registered whites. White tithables 7t*. White registered 772 Excess of tithables Is Black registered COS Black tithables 390 Excess of registered 2u3 This is a remarkablo fact, Hero is a race of men who are pressed forward by every artifice to register and becomo con trollers of public affairs, whilo in the mat tor of bearing a share of the burthens of tho government a little more than half only of tho number of registered can be found after diligent search. Many, how ever, after being found refused to give in their names. Mr. Reins, tho efficient* as sessor of Clay Ward, reports that some argued the point, and, like parrots, re peated the lessons they had learned at Ilunnicutt Hall. They denied that they were citizens of Virginia?asserted that they were citizens of the United States ; that they owed neither tax nor duty of | any sort to Virginia?and assured him General Schofield had nothing to do with them nor no authority over them. Tho assessor found in numerous cases many negroes huddled together in one house ; and sometimes they knew his busi ness, discovered his approach, and made their escape in a body, like sheep leaping a fence. These aro tho Radical voters with whom it is sought to Radicalize the South, and aspecially this noblo old State. Alas! alas! for the madness und mon strosities of these times ! Political Movements Among t ii k Fkkkpmkn ? Hunnicutt Nominated for Governor?11k Aiti.auos the Nomina tion.?A very large and enthusiastic meet ing of tho fueedmcn of the eastern portion of the city was held on Chimborazo llill a few nights since. The object of the meet ing was to nominate the 44 Friend aud Hero " for Governor, and right well was the work done, for among tho names men tioned in political circles as aspirants for that high position, not one received even honorablo mention savo ho who desired, single-handed, to capture Fortress Monroe in the early part of tho war. Messrs. J. I.. C. Danner, late of tho Confederate army, and Charles Brockmoyor, banker, recruiting officer, captain, and private in tho 41 Lost Cause," were present, aud by their inlluenco managed the negroes as they chose. Later in tho evening, the same managers repaired to Hunnicutt Hall, and there, by order of Brockrucyer, the same proceed ings were gone through, with the excep tion that hero they encountered opposition from an unexpected quarter. John Oli ver, who wants his children to go to the same schools with white children, made a protest on tho ground that Hunnicutt had advocated separate school-houses for whites and blacks. But his objections did not avail to turn aside the predetermined nnroose of its petters-un. Iiunnicutt was present at each meeting, fully endorsing himself, and cheering loudly with the multitude. On Wednesday night the hall over the Neic Nation was densely packed, and the samo resolutions endorsing Iiunnicutt again passed. Here again, too, John Oli ver took the stand against him ; but his voice was drowned in the acclamations which the resolutions wrung from the dusky crowd. It was a matter of some comment that the " Right Rower " of the " Friend and Hero " took no part in these proceedings. Can it be that ho has thrown up his hand and left his illustrious late colleague to fight the battle without his powerful aid ? Wo shall see. The Negroes and the Sunshine.?It is a noticeable fact that since the advent of spring, under the influence of the bright sunshine of the past few days, the negroes, no longer feeling the necessity of a fire and warm room to keep themselves com fortable, have abandoned the court-houses and the hall of the Convention, and may be seen every day on the capitol steps and at the street-corners basking in the warm rays of the April sun. Many of them seem to derive sustenance as well as warmth from this source, for they are never seen at work. Labor is wanted in the country around us?lauds are lying idle for the need of some one to work them ; but these poor creatures, partially fed by the Bu reau, prefer to remain hero and live a life of idleness and ease to gaining a livelihood by honest means. Attempted RnBHEifr.?Some thief at tempted, about 12 o'clock on Wednesday night, an entrance into the residence of Mr. A. M. Bailey. The rascal broke out a portion of the side light opposite the lock of the door, and running his hand in through the hole, turned the key and en tered. Mr. Bailey happened to be awake, heard the unusual noise, and immediately went down stairs, in time to scare the rogues oil' before they could gather up anything. Fire.?A chimney of Mr. John A. Robin son's residence, on Grace between Second and Third streets, caught fire yesterday, but was extinguished before any damage was done. This caused the alarm of fire about 12 o'clock M. Senator Wilson in Richmond.?Sena tor Wilson has accepted the invitation of six colored ministers of this city to address the colored people on the subject of tem perance. The address will bo delivered at the African church on Saturday night. Sale of Real Estate?Yesterday Messrs. Lyne & Brother sold a framed dwelling (near Dr. Strecker's house, on Strecker's Hill,) containing seven rooms, kitchen, etc., for 91.775. In* Memoriam?Mketino op the Bar.?
