Taking possession.

--On Friday night last, Granville Montelle, Samuel Trewaller and Richard Pettress, went to the house of a woman named Nannie Waddell on 2d street, and not finding her at home, took possession and retired to bed. She afterwards returned and demanded admission, but the occupants refused to open the door. She then procured the aid of watchman Carter, who was admitted without parley, and the three individuals were conducted to the station-house. On Saturday the Mayor committed them to jail, in default of security to keep the peace.

After disposing of the above case, the Mayor took advantage of the opportunity to investigate another charge against Granville Montelle, for disorderly conduct in the street and beating Michael Long. The accused was remanded to answer an indictment for misdemeanor.
