The Marietta Republican, May 14,1858
The May Term of Court has despatched the usual amount of business. A number of interesting civil cases were disposed of involving sums of from $10 to $1000. Several cases of assault and battery were tried upon the Criminal side. Albert Rodgers, found guilty of assault and battery. David Lefevre was fined $35 for the same offence, and Newton Wood, a small boy, was fined $15 on account of a fray between he and an elderly lady, the preponderance of testimony indicating that he had been the aggressor, although he was doubtless more seriously injured than his feminine antagonist. Levi Barber plead guilty to an assault and battery upon J. M. Jackson and was fined $10.
