Richard Hodges, a free negro, and Ann, slave to some person unknown, were charged with stealing sixty-four dishes, four dozen forks, three dozen tablespoons and twenty-four tin plates, the property of the Stuart Hospital. The evidence sustained the accusation of theft against Dick, and he was ordered thirty-nine lashes; but Ann was discharged, she having been the recipient of some of the articles, uncon

Elizabeth Touget, a free woman, was charged with threatening to assault and beat Branch Jackson, a slave. The case was plainly proven, and the accused committed to jail in default of security for her good behavior. Branch Jackson, a slave, appeared to answer the charge of stealing a lot of clothing from Mary A. Brown. No proof of his guilt was adduced, and the Mayor discharged him.
