George Totty, an idiotic looking white man, who remained during the session of the Court with his hat on, and staring vacantly about the room, was committed to jail in default of security, on the charge of associating with negroes. The police testified that Totty had been repeatedly admonished to break off his association with negroes, but inst he would not heed their advice. The following parties were ordered to be whipped: Ellick, a slave, charged with advising and aiding and siding Fanny, also a slave, hired to Peter F Valden, to make her escape and go to the county of New Kent, with intent to deprive her hirer of her services; Frank, slave of Wm H. Macfarland, charged with stealing $400 from Joseph T. Smith; and Tom, slave of Robert Smith, for threatening violence towards his master. A fine of $20 was imposed upon John W. Hughes, for permitting his servant to go at large.
