Recorder Caskie, who occupies the Mayor's judgment seat during the necessary absence of that official, yesterday ordered twenty-five lashes to be bestowed on William Ira Davis, a King William free negro, for some time past domiciliated in this region, in contravention of law, and who had on his person, at the time of his arrest by the watch, a most dangerous ‘"concealed weapon,"’ in the shape of a long knife, made out of a file blade, capable, from appearances, of doing speedy execution on human and other animals, if properly introduced into the diaphragm.
