--There were a number of cases before the Mayor
on Saturday, but through non-attendance of witnesses it was found necessary to postpone the examination of most of them.
In the case of Doctor J. Wyatt
, examined on the previous day for stealing a horse and wagon from Capt. A. G. Rodgers
, it appearing there was no larceny, but a breach of trust, Capt. Rodgers
having entrusted him with the horse and wagon which he sold and converted the money to his own use, the accused was discharged from the prosecution; but being a deserter from Capt. Rodgers
's cavalry company, he was sent to the Provost Marshal
William, slave of Ambrose Carlton
, charged with having in his possession a demijohn stolen from James J. Campbell
, was discharged.
, slave of — Alvey
, charged with breaking into the grocery of Robert B. Smith
, was remanded for future examination.
Joe, slave of James Kersey
, charged with breaking into the dwelling house of James Kersey
, was discharged.
was charged with stealing a pig from Joe. R Anderson
Neither the accused nor the accuser appeared.
This pig has been the subject of much litigation, and apparently the end is not yet. First Burke
charged a man named Davis
with stealing it, and that case falling through, Davis
with stealing it, which charge was also not sustained.
Now, it seems, somebody else has renewed the charge against Burke
was charged with stealing a chicken and a number of loaves of bread from Charles Miller
, and also with dealing with negroes.
, for some private reason, preferred not to sit in this case, and adjourned it till this morning, when it will be heard by Recorder Caskie
Angelina Boots, a free negro, was charged with permitting a nuisance to remain on her lot, but it appearing she had removed the nuisance, she was discharged.
