Is the Word in the Circuit Court--Large Number of Cases Tried.
The following cases were tried in the Circuit Court this morning: Bennie LEAVELL, larceny, acquitted; Fred GRIMES and Will DAVIS, larceny, costs; James ELLIS, larceny, acquitted; Mose PHELPS, pistol, continued; Bailey FELTS, pistol, acquitted; Red GROVES, disturbing public worship, $20 and costs; Ed WASHINGTON, pistol, dismissed; Will REYNOLDS, assault and battery, $1 and costs, motion for appeal entered; Awbrey PARSER, pistol, continued; and Anderson RIVES, larceny, continued.
When this term of court convened there was only one man, Jo. QUISENBERRY, left in the jail from last term of the court. The other thirty-six cases had all been bound over by the magistrates. More than half of these have been convicted since this term of the Circuit Court began; from which it will be seen that "things do move" in the law courts of Montgomery County.
The following cases were tried yesterday in the Circuit court: Luther WINDOM, carrying a pistol, continued; Earles SHAW, larceny, one month in the workhouse; Will SMITH and Henry BAKER, larceny, six months each in the workhouse; Will WILSON, larceny, three months in the workhouse; and Louis MERIWETHER, larceny, two months in the workhouse.
