In the Hustings Court, yesterday, Judge Lyons was engaged in hearing criminal cases, one or two of which were disposed of.—Henry Chadwell, charged with stealing a horse from W. S. Kemper, was put on trial and plead not guilty. The jury, after a brief retirement, returned a verdict of not guilty, and the prisoner was thereupon discharged. —John Farrell, indicted for stealing from John plead not guilty. The jury, after hearing the evidence, retired for consultation, but had failed to agree upon a verdict up to the hour at which the Court took a recess.
