H"l laud was arrested shortly after, and convicted in the Court of Sessions; but on the following day a man named Henrv Mackay appeared before Judce Dikeman and stated that he was the guilty party, instead of tbe already convicted party. To prove the truth of his assertion, Markev conducted an officer to the party who bad pur chaseu tbe watch from bim, and in consequence thereof tbe case of Holland, as far as the conviction went, was quashed. Mackay was then about to be tried for the robbery, on his own confession, when District Attorney Morns received certain information which inclined him to believe that the story of the confession was not altogether a veracious on", and that M.ickuv had thus come lot ward lo receive tbe punishment which properlv belonged to Holland. Moreover, it appeurcd that tbe man from whom Jackay recovered the watch had re cei\ort it from Mackay ; that Mackay in disposing of it bad said he was acting for another party, and that after the recot ery, the money paid by the receiver was re turned. Holland was placed on trial yesterday tor the second time, when i.unity renewed his statement, under oath, that he was tbe party wbo robbed bim.

Ross was only persuaded io accede to the rapacity of h?a quondam friend by tho necoefutits or his position and doubtless repented bitterly having been compelled to place himself so completely in his power. As soon as be bad complied with the demands of the captain and bad safely reached terra flrroa, it is sa'.d ho lost no time in lay ins plans of ret euge, but at once, by a lavish out lay of the money be bad acquirod at go much nsk to himaelf. hired the services of a gang of Portuguese des peradoea and instructed, them to assassinate him.

Meanwhile there have been almost endless lawsuits anting out of tills enormous swindle.

Alukxd Larcest?A 8cm in Cocmt.?For several run put, a vary pratty young woman about twenty two years of aga, the wifa of CharlaeV Owens, baa beta employed aa a waiter in the Oriental Concert Saloon, Broadway. Among the frequenters of that place waa Mr. Levi Knowles, an aged man, doing buaineaa sad living with his family at No. 478 Broadway. Mr. Knowtes ?pent many of bit evenings ia the Oriental 8aloon, con. versing and sipping wine with the pretty waller glrla Mr*. Owens waa a great favorite with Mr. Knowlea, and, according to bis own admission, he has lavished nearly 91,000 upbn her. chiefly In allowing h?r to keep money due him after paying for drinks which be had called for. Mr. Knowlea eventually fell so deeply in lovo with Mrs. Owens, that be told her aha waa too good a woman to remain in such a place, and proposed to hire and furnlah apartments for ber and ber husband at the corner of Essex and Rirington streets, provided ahe would leave the concert saloon. Mra. Owens partially consented to accept the proposition of Mr. Knowles, and subsequently she found herself duty installed in her new home, at which her kind iriend was in almost daily visitor. Mrs. Owens and also her husband solemnly aver that Knowles gave ber the furniture as bar own: bat this Knowlee denies. During a recent visit of Kuowles to tbe house of Mrs. Owens a setloua misun derstanding occurred between them, as she alleges, in consequeuoe of hla making a proposition tbe terms of which sbo could not comply with. Knowlea then be came angry, threatened to turn Mr. aud Mrs. Owens into tbe street sod concluded by saying be should send for tbe furniture tbe next day. That night Mrs. Owens, in anticipation of speedily removing to other apirtments, took away two blankets, some crockery ware, knives, forks and spoons, Ac., which articles Knowle* subsequently missed, and claimed as his own. On 'I uesday evening be caused the arrest of Owens on a charge of larceny, and Justice Hogan committed him to the Tombs for examination, which took place yesterday morning. Previous to the arrival of Knowles, however, Mrs. Owens appeared in court and told the magistrate that ber husband waa not guilty of larceny; that Knowles had presented her with the articles claimed to hare been stolen, and also stated the complainant's motive for bringing tbe complaint. Shortly afterwards, while sitting In Justice Hogan's room, .Mrs. Owens be came deeply affected at tho mortifying position in which her husband was placed, and commenced to weep bitterly. 8be seemed to be almost heartbroken, and found it Impossible to dry ber tears, till at length she swooned and fell to the floor. Restoratives were promptly ap plied, and In tbe conrso of flfteen minutes tbe fainting woman wan restored to consciousness. By this time the prisoner bad been brought Into court, whereupon Mr. Knowles was called up by tbe Magistrate and asked what complaint lie bad to make. His counsel replied that although Mr Knowles had lost some blankets and other articles be had concluded not fo press tbe charge any further, and therefore declined making an affidavit against Owens. This sudden termination of the case had a magical effect upon Mrs. Owens, who almost instantly resumed ber usual cheerful appearance and left the court with ber bustiand, whom Justice Hogan had discharged from custody.
