The preliminary in the case against
John Donohue for using false weights
and measures was heard before Jus
tice Johnston, of Jalapa, on last Thurs
day, and Donohue was discharged.
The Justice, in discharging him, ex
pressed the opinion that he had used a
false peck measure, but under sonic
peculiar construction of the law by the
Justice, he at thesame time discharged
him. It was only necessary for the
State to make out a probable case.
