--Watchman Baptist and his partner, while making their regular beat last Wednesday night, discovered an unlawful assembly of twelve negroes in a gentleman's kitchen, in the western part of the city, and captured and caged the entire dozen.
Yesterday morning they were tried by Justice Sadler and sentenced to be punished, as they had assembled without the knowledge or consent of the proprietor of the premises.
