Criminal Court Notes.

Court of Quarter Sessions-- Hare, J.-- A sealed verdict was yesterday brought in by the jury in the case of George Slaven, charged with selling lottery policies, but as the accused failed to put in an appearance the verdict was not announced. An attachment was issued against him to bring him to, but the officers had not found him up to the time of the adjournment. The jurors, who were kept together all day, were finally discharged until this morning.
