Unexpected Termination. --A charge preferred against James Dunlap and Geo. Hodges, by John Kernan, of assaulting and beating him, throwing stones at his house and breaking the door, was investigated by the Mayor on Saturday and dismissed.

The best way is to receive his decisions quietly, and if a party gets off without punishment, no demonstration against the accuser is necessary.
