JjyThc case of the Commonwealth
against J. J. Poster was tried last week,

and triumphant vindication of the Defen-1

press. The miserable wretch that
oj-tcn-ibly prefered the charge, made her
escape to New-Jersey, or she would have
;beeu lolged in jail.

Rev. E. Smith, of The Mansfield (O.)
Statesman, hasividence that the Brother
hood of Thieves, the existence of which
' was proven on a recent trial for burglary,

in confidence under circumstances calcu
lated to leave little or no doubt of their
truth. The name of this humble penitent
confessor dare not be given, as he would
certainly be put to death if his confession
should come to the knowledge of thti
