Pardoned by the Governor. – The Governor of Virginia has granted a pardon to a negro fellow named Joe, slave of Mrs. Fauntleroy, of Goochland, convicted of larceny by the Hustings Court, some time since and sentenced to transportation beyond the limits of the Confederate States. It will be recollected that Joe burglariously entered the dwelling house of Mr. John D. Harvey and stole a bucket of lard, amounting in value to about $75. He was afterwards arrested with the stolen property in his possession, whereupon he made a confession of his guilt.
