WILMINGTON, N. C,
The Mayor held an unusually large
levee this morning, the Court room beiDg
quite crowded, but mostly with citizens
of African descent, which is usual on such
occasions whenever any case of impor
tance K to be tried, and no matter the
timsof day, nor the length of time con
sumed in the trial, the colored man tefcres

Charles Legeier, charged w.th disorder
ly conduct, was the first case calUd acd
was disposed of by the defendant paying
: he costs .
A party for committing a nuisance in
the public streets was fined $5 and costs.
Toe third and last case on doc Set was
the one which excited rrost interest, and
when thft name of George Wright, alias
Grorge Myers was called, a small man
with black skin, kinky bair and with no
shoes on bis feet, came out of the prison
er's dock and appeared at. the bar of tb
Court, the crow I at this time gathering
closer to the railing, and all eyes were
turned to see the man who was arraigned
upon the serious charge of house break
ing,! which is classed in .the Criminal Code
of this State, where the houne broken in
tj is a dwelling, as was the caee in th's
instance, as burglary, with the penalty
in case of conviction of punishment by
Mr. Solicitor Moore, as is customary
with that gentleman in matters ot this
kind, was on hand to examine witnesses
for the titato.
Mr. D. C.
streets, and. the
Davis, who resides on
Bladen and Harnett
party, whose house was
robbed, was the first witness called to the
stand, and he testified in substance that
early yesterday morning, just before day,
he was awakened by bis wife, who arouL
ed him and told him that some one was
in the house. Leaping up at once he
bolted into the outer room, where the bur
glar jwas rifling the pockets of his clothes,
but the noise of his coming disturbed the
thief who darted out of the door closely
pursued by Mr. Davis ; reaching the yard
Mr. Davis saw the thief dodging in some
shrubbery, but before he could leaeh him
the villain made good his escape. from the
premises, leaving a pair of pan's which
he had taken, in the ooreer of the fence.
The alarm was given by Mr. Davis, who
was joined by his brother-in-law, Mr
Turley, and they both continued the chase
after; the robber in their night clothes,
running him throngh an alley near by,
when several policemen, just off duty
who were wending their way homeward,
heard the alarm and joined the chase.
The thief disappeared by jumping fence?,
first one way and then another, until he
washeaded off by Officer J. L. Williams
and' Mr. Eugene C. Allen, who caught
him In Love's Alley. j
, Mr. Davis stated further that the thief
had taken from his breeches pocket a bag
containing coin, mostly silver to the
amount of $11 32, besides a gutta percba
match box, and a little eather case; that
in the bag mentioned was seven half
doUars and one silver dollar, besides other
small coin, including a good many Jsi'ver
threej cent pieces. The witness stated
also that his ve3t had been rifled and
among other things of an old copper
coin of the -date of 1790 or 179 1. The
bag taken therefrom was found in posses
sion of the prisoner when he jwas caught
and was produced and i opened by the
Solicitor acd the contents emptied upon
a table, including seven silver half dollars
- j i :
aud one silver dollar and also numerous
three cent pieces, all as described by the
witness before the Ronton ts of the bag
were: shown in Court; a gutta pdrcha
match box and a small leather ease were
also produced, which Mr. Davis identified
as bis property. The witness was then
aiked if the prisoner at the bar was the
man i whom he give chase to on his pre
raises ye$erday morning audhe said that

O. Allen both testified th tt tLe prisoner

MONDAY - MARCH
ncer Williams and Mr. Allen.
Harriett Hubbard, a light colored wo
man, was examined as a witness, and tea
tificd in effect that the defendant mar
ried her dang ter, and that be and hi
wife occupy the name building with. her
self, though their rijoras are divided off
from each other. Witness beicg asked
whit lime the defendant left home yes
terday mnrninjj, said she got up before
day aud looked out, when Fhe beard
George, th' defendant, up in his room
talking with bis wife, saying that be was
going after some wood Also beard h s
Wife say to him, 'Ma has some wood acd
she will let you have tome adding 'don t
yu go out of this house to-day, for if
you do you will repent it the longest day
you live;' cou!d not identify the shoe,
though George had new shoes at home
which he had worn just like that.
Officer Kendrick,who serve 1 the warrai t
on defendant, testified that when he ask
ed the prisoner what his name was he res
plied that he registered and voted as
George Myers. When asked if he didn't
register and vote as George Wright a'so
he replied in the affirmative. The de
fendant, who had no counsel, was always
asked by the Mayor before the witness
quitted the stand if he wished to ask any
questions. Sometimes he availed himself
and at other times he did not, but inev
ery instance whenever he speke he tried
to make a statement to clear himself
though he acknowledged being on Mr.
Davis' premises, but said he went in to
fasten the gate, and that in jumping the
fence he lost his shoes (this was the way
he happeaed to be barefooted) and on the
fence he found the one shoe then in Court
with the bag and money in it. Thepris.
oner was frequently warned by the So
licitor that it would be best not to make a
statement as it might be used against
him at the trial, but through ignorance
we suppose, whenever he went to ask
questions of a witness the prisoner invar
iably said something which would crimi
nate himself. , i
After the examination of all the wit
nesses His Honor ordered the defendant to
be committed into the custody of the Sher
iff without bail for his appearance at tl
next term of the Criminal Court. This
finished the docket and the Court ad
We neglected to say in the proper place
that Mr. Davis stated, while en the witness

the night or morning of the burglary was
made by a bolt bon a lattice door .'being
forced back with some sharp instrument,
leaving the print of the instrument on the
door. A screwdriver which was found
on the person of George Wright, alias
George Myers, was then produced in
Court aud Mr. Davis testified that in all
