To this Booker replied that she had bargained to buy the corn, and he did not know why she was opposed to its being taken into her store.
Upon this he took the accused into custody.
For the defence a man named Conly appeared and stated that the corn was some he had bought from different parties on board of canal boats, and that he had authorized Booker to sell some of it for him. The matter was adjourned over till this morning.
Jasper, slave of Robert Saunders, arrested on Monday night with a lot of bacon in his possession, supposed to have been stolen, was committed to prison till such time as it can be ascertained whether the statement made by him in his defence is true or false.
Thomas, slave of Alfred Williamson, arrested in the house of Jane Robinson, a free negro, without a proper pass, was ordered to be whipped.
This wound up the proceedings for the day.
