The lnaugtiration of magisterial service was performed by Justice Thompson, who performed the like service at the occupation of the old guardhouse nineteen years ago, If we mistake not.

Mary Burke, colored, Mary Riley, whit* >nd Jtillna Tra<l<>r were hrntiirht from a house In the Seventh Ward, which had become annoying to the neighbors because of the disorderly conduct of the inmates The two women were sent to the "farm" for 60 days, and Trader, after suffering two hours extra confinement for indignant condemnation of Justice, was fined 82 94.
