selling liquor on Sunday, which was
- partially tried on Tuesday, and the jury
discharged in consequence of 00111 Of the

a verdict of guilty. Motion for a new

three indictmenta for selling liquor with,
out license, plead guilty to one and wile
contendere to the others, was sentenced
to pay the costs of prosecution in the
three cases, and a fine 0150' 112 the, case
in which the plea of guilty was entered.
William Drummond andlohn Wilkin
son, indicted for larceny, were placed on
trial and plead. not guilty. It was. al
leged that the accused had stolen four
dollars from a fruit stand at the corner
of - Fourth avenue and Market street.
Mary Santa), the prosecutrix, stated that
Drummond and two others' were at her
stand, when• the stand was thrown
over by one of the, party and the money
taken, Drummond remained-and. helped
her to fix up the stand. The Jury re
turned a verdict of not guilty. , •
The next case taken up was the Com
monweatth vs. Jacob Shrank, indicted
for larceny by bailee. The - defendant
was chargerbWith having unlawfully op•
propriated the property of his wif%
.Catharine Shrank. Mr. Fetterman,
counsel for defendant, moved to Tram
the indictment, for the reason that thw
property alleged to have been stolen. is
laid in the indictment as the property of
thewife of defendant. It appeared from
the argument on the motion . that Mrs.
Shrank, was a widow_ previous ,to the
time of her marriage with defendant,
and had by her former husband acquired
personal property ,to the amount of three
or four thousand dollars. .She married
Shrank in 1865, and in 1866 she became
insane and was subsequently sent to Dix-
Jnont., - In March last Mr. Frederick

take •charge of the effects of Mrs. Shrank.
