ed house. A pistol was fired in the melee, but the weapon was probably drunk also, since nobody was hurt. The Mayor remanded the offending parties, to be indicted for misdemeanor. John Sullivan, while on a large sized bender, found his way down to his old quarters, the city jail, and disregarding the "no admittance except on business" which stared him in the face, made an effort to break open the jail door. John was arrested, and the Mayor gave him a free ticket to the institution, in spite of his earnest protest that this was his first appearance in "three months." Peter B. Allen, overcome by the deceptive pleasures of a New Years ball, conducted himself so boisterously in the house of James Burns as to render his arrest a matter of absolute necessity. Committed in default of surety. Wm. McMellen, a man with a melancholy countenance, to which the Mayor gave the interpretation of a "vagabond look," was sent to jail to be kept for a season on total abstinence diet.
ruck Finn, a scuffle ensued, and he aimed a pistol at Finn, but did not fire it, because his arm was struck down. There was some further testimony, but nothing bearing especially upon either of the parties accused. Mr. Finn declared his purpose of getting out a warrant against Wayne for shooting at him, which he could prove. The Mayor said that he could go before the Grand Jury and present Mr. Wayne, if he thought proper; but in the meantime he would require security in the sum of $150 for his good behavior and for his appearance at Court. Mr. Curry was discharged. John Boltz and John Fink appeared to answer for the delinquencies of their sons in throwing rocks in the streets; but they satisfied the Mayor that they had whipped their boys soundly, and escaped without a fine. The following fines were imposed for keeping bar-rooms open after ten o'clock at night: John Charles, $5; Cropper & Herrin, $5; Jas. Burns, $10. Several other trivial cases were disposed of.
said he would remand the accused, to be examined before the Hustings Court, on a charge of grand larceny.--The lady, whose testimony we have given, invoked the Recorder to admit him to bail, on the ground that the testimony was liable to much doubt, and that the boy's health was seriously impaired; but the request was declined. Henry Miller and Augustus Miller, charged with getting drunk and fighting, seemed to have forgotten the words of the Psalmist--"how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity." Hence it became the duty of the Recorder to require each to give security in the sum of $100 to keep the peace. George Watts appeared to answer a charge of assaulting and beating Elizabeth Ames.-- The complainant being absent, the case was dismissed. John, slave of O. A. Taylor, and Austin, slave of M. B. Moncure, were convicted of larceny and ordered 39 apiece. James Burns was fined $20 for keeping his bar-room open after 10 o'clock, P. M.
. Wagner, William Moore, Charles Ward, and Jas. P. Bruce, deserters from the army, sent from Lynchburg; A. B. Wharton and Jordan Southwark, of the Caroline Light Artillery, deserters; Michael Burk, watchman at the Chimborazo Hospital, sent by the Sergeant of the guard there for drunkenness and disorderly conduct; Thos, Mea, John H. Stephens, and William A. Godfrey, soldiers, for safe-keeping. The detectives of the Assistant Provost Marshal of the Eastern District made a raid yesterday on several establishments in the lower part of the city who were supposed to deal in liquor. They entered the houses of John Baxter, Franklin street; James Burns, of the City Arms, Wall street; Peter Hutchinson, opposite thereto; Tim Callahan, near the Old Market, Harry Blockman, on Main street, and Henry Magee, keeper of the Alabama House, near the 1st Market. But little liquor was found. The parties who appeared to be guilty were paroled for trial before the Court-Martial now in session here.
