A Christmas party.

--Twenty-two negroes, male and female, were arrested by Watchman Carter at the house of Alexander Archer, on Friday night, where they had unlawfully congregated for the purpose of having a high old time. The women were discharged by the Mayor on Saturday, after their respective employers had paid a fine of $3 each, but the men were ordered below for a slight flagellation. Owners and employees would do well to beware of giving their servants liberty to attend these social gatherings, for the Mayor has determined to enforce the law in every instance.
