Thomas Msckay, convicted of larceny on three separate indictments, was found guilty In each f#se Two of the lndictmenta were for the robbery In Georgetown on the lfith September last, which w*a reported at length In the Star at the time. Mackav, It will be remembered, entered the house of Mr. Jos. A Williamson, of the Land Office, pot on a pair of that gentleman's unmentionables In exchange for his own. filled the pockets with jewelry, which he had gathered up on the premises, snd then stupidly went to bed in the chamber adjoining that which he had ransacked for hla plunder This act led to two sepsrate Indictments?for stealing st th ttlme the property of Mr Jos. A. Williamson and of Mr. S'm'l R Howell. Previous to &at time he had stolen a tidy from Mfa Chloe Ann Wardell, In the First Ward, and for that offence waa indicted by the name of Thos Michael. The Court sentenced him ss Thos Michael In the minor case to three months Imprisonment in the county Jail; then, under the name of Thoa.

Coclds't Stand Fixe ?Jenny Ltnd?not the Swedish Nightingale, but one of the frail sisterhood so called?has located herself In that fashionable part of the town, the west end. With becoming modesty, however, she chose a resldence in a retired part of the Flrnt Ward, near the Observatory. Yet the neighborhood is tolerab'y lively, ss will readily be believed when wo state that It la In the vicinity of the Government me^s-house, stock yards, Ac Yesterday morning, two soldiers entered her honse, and were rather too noisy to suit her Ideas of propriety. She ordered them out, but they refused to go, when she took s gun and pointing at them threatened to shoot. A young girl, one of the Inmates of the bouse, snatched the gun from the hands of heroic Jenny, and the soldiers, who were not sfrald of a woman, not they, became more uproarious than ever. They thought the gun was sll make-believe Jenny couldn't see It, not in thst light. She ran up-stairs, brought down a aix shooter In her hsnd, and as she entered the door fired A bullet passed between the heads of the intruders; thev looked; her finger waa still on the trigger; rather'doubtfully they took a step In advance; bang went another barrel, the bullet juat grazing the whiskers of one fellow, when both abruptly turned, and Incontinently fl^d Jenny gave them a parting round as they vsntshed, snd the ball this time passed through the coat tails of the hindmost man. From the position of the wound in the aforessid coat-tails It Is apparent that when that ball passed through them they must have been horizontally projected by the rapid retreat of the wearer.

H L Steven*, in this city, and formed a soldier*' aid association, having In view, particularly, the interest* of the Michigan troop* In thi* military department. A constitution was adopted, and officer* were elected a* follow*: Hon. James M Edmund*, President; Judge J. H Gray, Vice President; H J. Alvord, Secretary) Z Mom*, TOMIUII. The object* of the association briefly are :?To look after the sick and wounded in the hoep'tali and the general condition of the soldier* in camp; to see that tbe comforts and necessities which are constantly being made up and forwarded to this city by the families and friend* of the soldiers reach the company or regiment desired, and to be a special means of communication between tbe people of Michigan and their gallant representatives ia tbe army of the Potomac A fund was raised to carry on the objects of the Association, and committees were appointed to carry out the details A storekeeper?J. B Bloss, Esq., of the General Land Office?was appointed to take charge of the goods arriving by express for our *oldlers. and forward packages to the regiment or company indicated. This movement is one in tbe right direct}^ and cannot fall to work positive good to our brave soldiers. The association desires communications from the several Michigan regiments, directed to the secretary at Washington. Respectfully, M E N H Washington, Dec. 11,1861. Pickpockets Opeeatino Scccsssr ci.lt?The number of pickpockets now in the city cannot be told. They may be named " legion,'' and they comprise all the grades, from the genteel, fashionable " dip" down to the vagabond handkerchief picker. They have operated most successfully at the railroad depot within a few days On Saturday, a gentleman, on his way to his home with about 8240 jn his pocket, a part of which was for the relief of a soldier's family, was robbed of the entire amount at the ticket office. Yesterday, at 5 o'clock p m , Mr. A. A. Johnson, of Pa .had his picked of about $20,000 In money, drafts and checks. This morning, another gentleman lost ?40 in money by a similar operation In the same place When our Government police detectives shall have thoroughly ventilated their theories upon tbe centraband question, it is to be hoped they will give some attention to their legitimate business and to the grievance* of whits folk*. Prot. Lows'* gas Generators ?Much Inconvenience has attended the operations of Prof Lowe in making observations at points dls'ant from the slty, from tbe fact that his balloons had to be Inflated in the city and transported to the point where the observations were to be made, a slow and tedious process. This will now be obviated, as portable gas generators have been constructed, and are now ready for service. Two of them, Nos 5 and 6, are now in the city, and attract much attention In the armory lot. The apearatus Is contained In a box very much retailing the cage* used by itinerant showmen for their curiosities, and being fixed upon a fourwheeled carriage, strongly constructed, the whole machinery, balloon and attachment, may be transported to any point a* easily as an ordinary train wagon. Release or a White Man ?Yesterday a gentleman from the Sanitary Committee called upon Justice Donn to obtain a release for John Kelly, tbe Insane soldier confined In ths county Jail, who failed to excite the sympathy of the contraband seekers, as was noticed in the Star of tbe day before The intention of the committee Is to dispose of him, as shsuld have been tbe case four months ago, by removing him to the Insane Asylum for treatment. We are Informed that the committee did not know until Monday of bis case, which is regarded as very strange, considering the visits of the Boriaboola Gha Association to the jail, and the protracted Inspection given to prison affairs by that soft-hearted policeman, Detective Allen. Dismissed.?Henry Anthony, who was charged by Mrs. Eliia Hoffman with being the leader of the gang who entered her house a few nights since ard committed a robbery, was arrested by officer Champion day before yesterday and taken before Justice Cull. The witness for the prosecution failed to appear, and Anthony was dismissed. Honestt ?In these dsys of army contractors, sutlers, Ac., it is certainly refreshing to have to record a case of honesty. Carter, one of the drivers of the Union line of omnibuses, a night or two since, received a $2 50 gold piece from a gentleman, both mistaking it for a dime. The driver promptly returned the money when satisfled of the identity of the party from whom he received It. Verdict or the Coroner's Just?The Coroner's inquest into the cause of the death of John Bringline, who was snot tbe night before last in Prather's alley, resulted In a verdict of death from a shot fired from a pistol in the bands of one Albert Contner. A slip of paper was found In tbB pocket of tbe deceased, indicating that he was a married man.
