Miss H. adjourned to an Alderman's office and got out a warrant.
The Mayor at first determined to commit the whole party, but finally let off all save Maggie Mitchell.
The case of Wm. W. Bingham, charged with unlawfully taking Lizzie, a slave, belonging to Martha A. Gorman, of Georgia, was called and continued for four days, on account of the absence of witnesses, who are expected from the South by that time.
Just as the Court was on the point of an adjournment, Martin Harvey, a soldier, was brought up as a party who had snatched from the hands of Lucy Ann White, a colored woman, a silver watch, on Clay street, near Brook Avenue. After the "snatching" occurred, the old woman raised an outcry which was heard by Mr. James Prosser, who saw the thief retreating, followed by the old woman, in the direction of Bacon's Quarter Branch.
He also pursued, came up with the man, seized him, and he thereupon gave up the watch.
Harvey was committed to appear before an examining Court.
