This case will come on for trial before the St. Catherine's Circuit Court to-day. It is an action to recover damages against the Hon. Alexander J. Lindo, late Custos of St. Mary, for false imprisonment during the disturbances in this island, in 1865. We understand that his Excellency Sir John Peter Grant will be a witness to prove the grant of indemnity under the Statute passed after the suppression of the Rebellion. Argument will arise as to the validity of the step taken by His Excellency, as it is alleged the indemnity was granted after the action was sent out.



Some thief or thieves entered the dwelling house of Mr. J. B. Prescott, in Hanover Street, on Monday night, and stole from the front piazza several articles of wearing apparel, and a new Hammock. No Policemen are ever to bel found in this locality; and it is high time the force were strengthened, so as to deter persons from committing this serious offence.



We understand that the Government have appointed an Auditor-General for this Island, and that he will shortly arrive from England. The Hon. Alex. Bravo will then be appointed Receiver General.

The Schooner Dolphin, which left this port on the 13th for Colon, took away some of 64 passengers. There has been for a number of years, a steady tide of Emigration between this port and the Isthmus; the present depression in the Commercial and Agricultural state of the Island are said to be compelling these persons to leave the country n quest of employment. They consist of artisans, domestic servants, and speculators in minor articles, and others say, it is because they are too lazy to work in Jamaica.

Preston was held to bail in £200 to answer the charges of larceny and embezzlement.



The dereliction of duty by the Petty Debt Collector of St. Ann and his deputies has been the subject of investigation by Mr. Stipendiary Justice Lowry. For neglecting to furnish certain returns, the Collector, Mr. Isaac Morris, was severely censured and fined £10. The inquiry was then extended into the faithfulness of those returns, when Mr. Morris was again censured, and it is stated that his alarm was so great that whilst the Judge was addressing him he fell down in hysterics. On the proceedings being resumed on a succeeding day, the Petty Debt Collector refused to be sworn or to give any papers or explanation concerning his office; in fact, he set the Court at defiance. The depositions have been forwarded to the Governor, and the Collector has subsequently resigned.



A meeting of the Subscribers to this Institution was held at the Jamaica News Room on the 11th instant, when a very favorable Report for the half year was presented and read.
