Recovery of Stolen Goods. – On the 5th of January last, Mr. J. A. Temple lost a lot of window blinds, which he recently suspected were concealed on the premises of Mrs. Mary James, living near Camp Winder. Yesterday morning he procured a search-warrant, which was executed by Constable E. W. Robinson, one of the most active and efficient officers of Henrico county. The result of his search not only brought to light the stolen sash, but also a large lot of bedsteads, bedding, knives and spoons, which were identified as the property of Winder Hospital. Constable Robinson also took possession of about one hundred fowls and two or three hogs, found on Mrs. James’ premises, which he supposed were stolen, and requests that all persons who have lost such will call upon him, in order that they may examine them.
