James Walton, who stands charged with robbing, various public houses, taverns, coffee houses, and eating-houses, where he had obtained a bed, underwent a second examination on Tuesday, and, in consequence of the publicity given at the last examinations, more than 200 licensed victuallers, their servants, and others, attended to prefer charges against him. Various pawnbrokers produced bundles of property of every description pledged with them, but no portion of it could be identified. The prisoner's waistcoat was, however, owned by one of the publicans, and the magistrate said be should commit him for trial on that charge. He was then remanded for further examination upon some of the other charges.
