Belligerent Darkey. --An overdose of fighting whiskey caused John Jenkins, a free negro, on Tuesday night, to put himself in opposition to law and order to the extent of obtruding himself on the lot of William Watts, where, besides enacting the various antics that distinguish the brute from the man, he mistook Daniel Lomax and Sarah Jenkins for congealed water, and commenced an attack on them with an ice-pick. He was released from the singular delusion under which he labored by the entrance of Watchman Fergusson, who bore him off in triumph to the Second Station House. Yesterday morning John Jenkins was arraigned before the Recorder for his acts and deeds, and nothing being offered in mitigation of their enormity, he was adjudged to receive a corporeal infliction, be committed to jail in default of $100 bail, and to work in the chain-gang for the space of sixty days.
