Sent to the chain-gang.
, who claimed to be a paroled prisoner, lodged a complaint yesterday before the Recorder
against Francis Rupright
, for cutting and stabbing him a few days since.
The testimony in this case showed that Carroll
and several other worthless characters, wearing Confederate uniforms, had gone into Rupright's and demanded liquor, which he refused to give them until the money was produced therefore.
This refusal brought down upon R.'s head a shower of abuse, when they were ordered to leave the premises.--At this Carroll
became greatly enraged, and commenced swearing in a violent manner at Rupright and the whole race of Germans which rendered it necessary for more forcible means to be resorted to to rid his store of these fellows, and R. accordingly picked up an unloaded musket, with which he succeeded in causing C. to make tracks.
The next day they came back, and seeing Mrs. Rupright
began to abuse her in the most violent and obscene manner, finally winding up the affair by giving her one or two severe blows over the eyes and head.
This evidence being elicited during the trial, the Recorder
, instead of punishing Rupright, assigned Carroll
, the complainant, to the chain-gang for sixty days, in default of bail for his good behavior.
