nced kicking at the door and finally broke it down; after which he entered the house, broke up some crockery, and threatened to take Mary's life. For this conduct His Honor sent the prisoner to the chain gang for ninety days. A charge was preferred against Mary Ankers, of threatening to strike Burton, a little son of Mrs. Mary Shaw. Several witnesses were examined, whose evidence showed that both parties were at fault, and that at best it was one of those trivial matters which should be kept from the Courts, and ought to be settled by the parties interested themselves. Taking this view of the case the Mayor promptly dismissed the parties. Mary and Hannah, slaves, were whipped for stealing a lot of thread from one of the variety stands at the Second Market. Henry, slave of William S. Taylor, charged with stealing a small lot of bread, meat and sugar from the Spotswood Hotel, and with being impudent to the officer who arrested him, was ordered to be soundly thrashed.
Glorious news from the Trans Mississippi. Mobile, May 16. --A special dispatch to the Advertiser and Register, dated Brookhaven 16th, says that news from Natchez direct states that Banks has surrendered unconditionally to Taylor. The Federals say that he did it for spite on being superseded by McArthur. The rumor of our men being brutally murdered near Van Ducan, after being taken prisoners, seems confirmed. It is talked of in Natchez as retaliation for Fort Pillow.
