yesterday disposed of a number of cases, in a majority of which, as usual, the colored folks figured prominently.
Albert, slave of M. Mangum
, was ordered 39 lashes for substituting a formidable slung-shot for a pass.
, free, was ordered the same punishment for having a ‘"fancy colored ball"’ at his house.
There were seventeen darkies at the party aforesaid, and the ‘"perlice"’ captured them.
We might add their names, and the fact that they were admonished in the usual way, but it is unnecessary.
A musky odor pervaded the Mayor
's sanctum yesterday, and there was much darkness prevalent.
In addition to the above, Stephen, slave of Wm. Breeden
, was whipped for giving a forged pass to Taylor
, slave of Kersey
and Ann Ri, for preventing Mike O'Neil
from moving his goods from his own house, were required to give security for their good behavior.
