Senior Alderman Richard D. Sanxay in the City Hall. The action was in the nature of a demand on the part of James Evans against John Hagan, (familiarly called Hagan's John, King of the Creek Nation,) for forty dollars alleged by Evans to have been ‘"given him (Hagan) wrongfully."’ The circumstances leading to this action are well known to the reading public, and need not be again alluded to A. Judson Crane, Esq., appeared for the plaintiff, and John S. Caskie, Esq., for the defendant. After arguments by the learned counsel, the presiding magistrate dismissed the case--first, because the precise amount of money demanded was not testified to, and secondly, because the correctness of the ‘"account"’ was likewise not proved. Judgment given for defendant's cost, and appeal taken and allowed.
