Peters, was dismissed on account of the non appearance of the complainant. Lee Maltory and Henry McGee were each fined $5 for permitting water to waste from their hydrants, in violation of a city ordinance. Logan Waller was also fined $5 for permitting a servant in his employ to throw stones in the street. Tom, slave of James A.

The same punishment was administered upon Aaron, the property of John A. Belvin, arrested with a lot of tea and sugar in his possession which he could give no good account of. Two slaves, named Ben and Washington, were ordered to be whipped for being out after hours without a proper pass. Wilson, slave of Joseph Angle, cha
tunate as to get together a difficulty is sure to ensue. Maurice claims that Mrs N curses and abuses him on all occasions, and on Monday morning she gouged him in the eye; while the accused alleges that the reverse has been the case.

On account of the inability of the Mayors to procure the attendance of Nelligan as a witness, he being with his command, the parties were discharged of the crime; but, in consideration of the previous bad character of Dunnavant, he was required to give security for his good behavior in future. Whitehurst was sentenced to the penitentiary on Friday, in Judge Lyons's Court, for forgery. The following cases were continued for reasons deemed satisfactory by his Honor: Daniel, slave of Andrew L.
