A Heavy Argument.
In our last issue, in an item
headed "Crevasse," we mention
ed the fact that we had been in
formed that the water had made
its appearance in the cellar of the
'flag store"- Neisen & mi. and
that, in our opinion, that building
could not stand the pressure. The
liead of that firm, upon reading
our article, was very indignant
that we should entertain such an
opinion, and called on us with a
tn-pound-club-argument, and he
"convinced" us that hisellar was
very dry. In proof of which fact,
the following notice Ttfs posted on
his "outer-walls," which we copy

Justice Mix's Court.
Last Monday evening, Mrs.
Maize was brought up before Jus
tice Mix, charged with assault
and battery upon an Indian child.
The Jury in this case, after being
out all night, returned into Court
Tuesday .morning, without hav
ingagreed upon a verdict. Where
upon another venire for twelve
Jurymen was issued, and the case
tried again on that evening. This
time the Jury returned a verdict
of guilty of assault. Wednesday
morning, Justice Mix sentenced
the woman to $50 fine and costs,
the whole amounting to $111. In
default of which she was confined
to prison. The counsel far de
fendant filed a notice of appeal but
failing to furnish the required
bonds, she was remanded to prisom
During that day Mr. Maize, the
husband of the woman above
named, went into Justice Mix's
Court, and thero insulted him,
whereupon the Judge fined him
$50 for contempt of Court, but as
money seem to be scarce in the
family, he too was cofined in Jail
in default of payment of fine. The
man and wife and three little chil
dren, besides the "indispensable"
dog, are now enjoying the luxuries
of the Hotel de Ville.
Since writing the above, the
counsel for defendant applied for
a writ of habeas corpus before
Judge Porter, which was denied,
but in view of the fact that the
record from the Jutice's Court did
not show that a bond on appeal
had been presented to Justice Mix,
theCourt ordered thatthe attorney
for defendant prepare a good and
sufficient bond, and present it to
the aforesaid Justice. The bond
being1 prepared, Justice Mix ap
proved of the same, and dis
charged the prisoner.
