House warming. --Jeremiah Donahoe, an athletic man, with British protection papers in his pocket, was arraigned before the Mayor — yesterday to answer the charge of assaulting and beating Patrick Coll. The complainant testified that on Sunday morning last he called at Jerry's house, near Mayo's bridge, and found him and four or five other men engaged in playing cards and drinking. He took one or two drinks, by invitation, but did not participate in the game. In the course of the morning Jerry's watch was stolen, and Coll having had an opportunity of lifting it, and failing to deliver it to the owner when demanded, was struck two or three blows. Coll saw drinks paid for, one of the party paying $8. Other witnesses testified that the party met at the invitation of Jerry, who gave a house warming, and that the liquors were not paid for. The Mayor held the accused to bail to answer an indictment by the Grand Jury for keeping a disorderly house. He also held Coll to ball to appea
s inhabitants and the increase of its vices. At the Mayor's Court, yesterday, during the investigation of a charge against James McGee, of keeping a barroom on the Island without a license, an invitation ticket, signed Miss Celia Smith, for a mask ball, on the 26th, was shown; and some of the officers, who had lately visited the Island, gave such a description of the iniquity hourly perpetrated there as to shock the sensibilities of any Southern community.--This island is on the great highway between Richmond and Manchester, and is as public as almost any part of Mayo's bridge.--That lewd women and wicked men will be allowed to assemble on it at pleasure, to the disgust of all moral and religious passers by, we cannot believe. If such creatures must be tolerated, let them find their abodes and places of amusement in such localities as not to offend the decent and virtuous; and if they will thrust themselves before the public, they ought to be punished to the very extent of the law.
