presided at the Mayors Court
on Saturday, and disposed of the following cases:
was charged with "feloniously" attempting to break in the door of Michael Griffin's house, with a view to assault him. The case was interwoven with the usual lustrated points that clog the wheels of justice, when two families living in one house "fail out and snarl and fight." The Justice finally held Patrick
to ball in the sum of $150 to appear before the Grand Jury
to answer an indictment for misdemeanor.
, one of those unfortunate members of the human family who become used up by whiskey, was sent to jail in default of surely to keep sober in future.
He plead touchingly for release, but it was no go.
appeared to answer a charge of assaulting Patrick Shea
; but the latter failed to answer when called, and the case was continued until Monday.
, slave of James Thomas
charged with stealing a shawl from Flemming
, slave of James Epps
, was sentenced to the whipping post.
Each established a clear ownership of the shawl, by the evidence, but the Justice
decided that Fleming
was entitled to it.
