Attempt to Swindle --Winnie Morton, a free negroes, was arrested and carried before the Mayor yesterday for feloniously obtaining by false pretences $150 worth of clothing from Miss Anna Louise Taylor. The sagacity of the intended victim prevented the wholesale depletion of her wardrobe contemplated by the enterprising colored female, and the latter, after her felonious designs became apparent was duly caught by Officer Chalkley and locked up, a prey to the reflections that must have contended for mastery in her ebony colored but guilty bosom. The Mayor remanded her for trial for felony on the second Monday in May next.
Sold. --The City Sergeant yesterday sold in front of the City Hall a free negress, named Winnie Morton, for $950 cash, she having been convicted before the Hustings Court of grand larceny, and ordered to be sold into absolute slavery pursuant to law.
