Charged with Stealing. – Constable E. W. Robinson, of Henrico, arrested on Saturday a soldier named Marvin Hall, charged with stealing three watches and a lot of other jewelry, belonging to Mary Cove. A short time since Mary started a little snack-house in the neighborhood of Chimborazo Hospital. Malvin, becoming very intimate at the place, was sometimes left in charge by the proprietress, and a few days since he took advantage of her absence, and made off with the articles above named. The case will be investigated before a county justice.
