Disorderly Conduct. --Three young men, named George F. Long. Chas. Long, and John Sterling, were arraigned before the Mayor yesterday on the charge of attempting to break into Mrs. Mary Melton's house, on the night of the 17th inst. Mrs. Melton testified that George Long came to her house on the night in question and demanded admittance. Refusing to comply with his request, he proceeded to beat against the door and pull at the window shutters, alarming her very much. The evidence only implicated the first-named party as the guilty one, the other two being present simply as friends of George, whom they were trying to persuade to relinquish his disorderly designs upon the residence of the complainant. The Mayor, therefore, held him to bail in the sum of $300 to keep the peace for twelve months, and discharged the other two.
