Gaming cases in Court. --Benjamin Degroot was yesterday tried before the Court of Hustings on a presentment for "exhibiting a gaming table commonly called faro bank."--The prisoner pleaded not guilty, and conducted the defence himself, after which the case was submitted to the jury without argument. A verdict of guilty was rendered, and the fine assessed at five hundred dollars. The Court then ordered that he pay the fine and costs, and be imprisoned in the common jail for the term of 12 months. John A. Worsham, presented for permitting a faro bank to be kept and exhibited on his premises, was next arraigned for trial, and pleaded not guilty. The evidence was partly heard, and the case was adjourned over to this morning, the defendant giving bail in the sum of $3,000 for his appearance. Messrs. Crump; Johnson, and Ould are counsel for the defence.
