Stealing C. S. Treasury Notes. - The examination of Dick, slave of President Davis, and Oliver, slave of Dr. Walke, charged with entering a room in the Custom-House and stealing several thousand dollars' worth of blank Confederate twenty dollar Treasury notes will take place before Commissioner Watson to-day, at 12 o'clock. Detective Washington Goodrich has been for some time engaged in hunting up the accomplices of the accused, who, from their familiarity with the Custom-House, were enabled to perpetrate their thefts without suspicion for a long time.
