which would tinge with a blush the cheek of India's most daring, reckless Thug, was perpetrated in Breckinridge county a few days since. An old resident, named John Boyd, who lives about six miles from Hardinsburg, on the Hudsonville road, was aroused from his bed on the night of the 31st ultimo, by a company of (God save the mark) home guards. Mr. Boyd, who is an elderly gentleman, his head having been frosted by the touch of full sixty winters, left his bed, and, upon the summons, proceeded to the door, which no sooner had he opened than he was seized by a band of ruffians, under command of an abolitionist yclept Dick Sutton, by whom he was, without cert ceremony or interrogation, took him to a tree, to which hand and foot he was bound.

Mrs. Catherine Botis was fined two dollars because her son had been found throwing rocks in the street. J. Nelson was fined one dollar and required to give security on the charge of being drunk and disorderly in the street.
