Hustings Court, yesterday.
--Present, Alderman Sanxay
, presiding, and Messrs. Bray
, and Regnault
A nolle presequi
was entered in the case of C. Keazle
, indicted for keeping an ordinary without license, by paying the costs.
The court released certain taxes erroneously assessed upon the York River Railroad Company.
The case of Miss Lizzy Winn
, indicted for keeping an ill-governed and disorderly house, on Locust alley, occupied the most of the time of the court yesterday.
It appears that Miss Lizzy
has changed her domicil, and now resides in some other place than the one specified in the indictment.
The ingenuity of learned counsel was brought to bear for and against the accused, and the result was that the jury could not agree on a verdict, and the case was continued, and the jury adjourned over until eleven o'clock this morning, when the jurors will again have an opportunity of discussing the merits of the case in their room.
This has proved to be a case most difficult of decision.
The court will probably insist on a verdict from the present jury.
The court adjourned till this morning.
