Sixth District Police ? B'/ore Jmtire ChII. A rather singular ease w;m up the other day ; In which Ibe plaintiQ, one Flora Moore, a colored woman, brought suit against one Martin Young haut/?a German, to recover certain moneys al leged to be due her for her servic es as midwife - in the defendant's family. The defendant was bad up. and on appearing, ruled the day for a trial of the ca*e In tbe meantime be thought to sell the sLarp-witted constables by eflecling a compromise with the ex-midwife, and accord ingly be went to her and forked over tbe amount of her bill, and took a receipt in full of all de mands When toe day of trial came about the defend ant appeared at th? magistrate's office and exhib ited his receipt, and of course tbe case was non suited The German chuckled bfartilv at the manner in which he bad done tbe constables out of cer tain anticipatory fees, and went on bis way, ie joicing. The officers somewhat chagrined at the unex pected upshot of the case, put their heads to gether to see how thev might get even with the ennnin; German Thev ascertained that Mr Younghautz had in bis possession two goats, which he was harboring about bis premises without having paid a license for so doing. So a warrant was issued at their instance, and the aforesaid Youngbantz came before his honor on the above serious charge The defendant plead that tbe goats were necessary in his family to supply milk to an Infant child in the failnre of its mother to perform that essential function ; but the fact lieing proven that tbe animals in ques tion were billy gnatt, it was held by the magis trate that proof was wanting to show their use fulness in the alleged capacitv ; so Youn"hautz was lined S3 and costs, the offi< ers thus having the laugh on their side.

The indictment, which read ?? a promissory note for the payment of five dollar*, and of the value of five dollars," was not sustained. The jury accordingly brought in a verdict of not g.iilty.
