Not proved.

--Daniel, slave to Charles Friend, and Bowling, slave of Hector Davis, were arraigned before the Mayor yesterday on the complaint of a colored brother, named Bill Scott, who charged the parties with unlawfully entering his domicil and putting him in great bodily fear by sundry uncalled for warlike manifestations tending to the apprehension on his part of immediate annihilation. Bill's testimony demonstrated the fact that he was more scared than hurt, and the Mayor taking into consideration all the circumstances discharged the accused, with an intimation of the direful consequences likely to ensue if Scott should be molested by them.
