--Yesterday, Robert, slave of Henry Nowland
, and Delaware
, slave to Geo. Turner
, were carried before the Recorder
, charged with attempting clandestinely to remove a wardrobe, bedstead, chairs, and a trunk from the premises of Mr. John A. Jeter
The articles belonged to that gentleman's cook, who had been promised a flagellation for indulging in a regular drunk, on last Sabbath.
The timely appearance of the watchmen, at an early hour, prevented not only the escape of the woman but the removal of "her things." Her colored friends were ordered to condign punishment.
