The Excise law--heavy Judgment.

--The New York evening papers of Saturday have the following: It is a well known fact that there are several thousand suits on the calendar of the Court of Common Pleas, brought by the Board of Commissioners of Excise, of this county, to recover a penalty of $50 for each violation of the excise law by liquor dealers selling liquor without licenses. Some six hundred having failed to answer the complaints, judgments have recently been obtained against them in the sum of $50 each, and $13.13 costs, making a total sum of about $38,000. These judgments have been entered up, and the executions will be issued forthwith.
