—The jury in the case of James Clendining, charged with grand larceny having failed to agree up to Saturday were discharged and the prisoner remanded to jail till the next term. The case of John W. Chronister, (for grand larceny,) was continued until the next term. The jury in the case of Orris Harrision, charged with feloniously stabbing Miles McJordon, returned a verdict of guilty, with six months' imprisonment in jail and a fine of $50. Charles Smith will probably be tried for forgery to-day.
