's docket yesterday morning was a long one, and occupied several hours in being disposed of. We present the cases as they came up:
Sam, slave to R. G. Woodward
, arrested for going at large, was examined and sent on to the Hustings Court.
, for assaulting John A Gorman, breaking the windows of Mrs. Sinnott
's house with a stone, and being a deserter, was examined and committed to prison in default of bail.
John had been indulging in the use of bad spirits, and there fore his desire to annihilate everything that came in his way. Calm reflection in the cottage under the hill may make him repent of his follies.
Thomas Freely, for-being very drunk and disorderly, was held to bail for better behavior.
and Ralph, two negroes employed in the Manchester
cotton factory, were called to the bar for having relieved the mill of several pieces of valuable cloth, which they were taking to a wayside customer when captured.
After telling a variety of stories as to how they came into possession of the goods, they finally owned up to have stolen it from the mills.
Their examination was adjourned till this morning.
