Whipped. --The following negroes were ordered by the Mayor to be thrashed yesterday for the various offences specified against them: Fountain, belonging to M. B. James, was caught on Thursday night with five grain bags in his possession, supposed to have been stolen. No satisfactory explanation being produced by Fountain to prove his innocence, he was ordered fifteen stripes. The same number of lashes was bestowed on Dick, an old negro belonging to Garret Cariton, for being without a pass and having in his possession a lot of surgical instruments. Dick's attempts to clear himself of the charge involved him deeper in the difficulty, and the Mayor soon disposed of his case. Ella, a little negro girl about 11 years of age, slave of Wellington Goddin, was arraigned on the charge of stealing from Mrs. Elmira Holmes, living on French Garden Hill, a gold chain valued at $50 or $60. She was also ordered a whipping.
