Jones, was punished for going into Joseph May's store and using insolent and provoking language to his wife, John Thornton was required to give security for committing an assault and battery on Charles J. Miller. The examination of Andrew J. Hawking, charged with being engaged in a riot on the 20th of April, was continued on account of the absence of witnesses, as was also the case of John Logan, for breaking into Fred. Weidemyer's smoke house and stealing 300 pounds of bacon. Sundry members of the colored fraternity were punished for petty infractions of law. such as smoking cigars in the street, going without passes, &c.
