--The cases before His Honor yesterday, though numerous, did not possess much interest.
The following is a summary of those disposed of:
John F. Farrer
, and Ann, his slave, were charged with living together on terms too intimate to be tolerated by the laws of decency and good order; but, in the absence of any strong proof against them, they were discharged.
, slave of James Bagby
, was ordered to receive a whipping for stealing a carpet bag
, containing wearing apparel
, the property of Roy Jones
, a free woman, was charged with threatening to assault and beat Branch Jackson
, a slave.
The case was plainly proven, and the accused committed to jail in default of security for her good behavior.
, a slave, appeared to answer the charge of stealing a lot of clothing from Mary A. Brown
No proof of his guilt was adduced, and the Mayor
Fines of twenty dollars each were entered against George W. Bates
, John Miller
, (two cases,) and William H. Eggleston
, for keeping their drinking-houses open after 10 o'clock at night.
A case was booked against Virginia Howard
, a white woman, charged with annoying and disturbing the peace of Joseph M. Dominico
By consent of the complainant, however, the prosecution was dismissed.
