yesterday imposed a fine of one dollar on Jacob Rice
, for permitting his slave Milly to deposit ashen in a public alley.
The following parties were fined for keeping their bar-rooms open on Sunday last, or after ten o'clock at night, viz: John Hitchcock
, $5; John Charles
, $5; Jacob Poe
, $5; James O'Neal
, $10; Henry Gearing, $5. The charge against John Baxter
for offending in the above particular was dismissed, and that against John Martin
expressed himself to the effect that if everybody kept as orderly a place as he did, the city would be a ‘"devilish sight better off,"’ an announcement which drew from the Mayor
the expression of a wish that Mr.
B. would forbear to use such terms before him, as the ‘"devil,"’ so far as he was informed, took no part in the administration of law in the court of justice presided over by His Honor.
