   Andrew Poe, grandson of Adam Poe the Indian killer, and as he says, himself a white man killer, was arrested in company with two others on Sunday evening last, for threatening life and making great noise and fuss generally through the day at Mill Point, this crowd was arraigned before Justice PARKS on Monday, one was discharged without trial, one was fined three dollars in consequence of pleading guilty and the exhibition of due degree of penitence.óBut poor Poe was fined five dollars and costs, and failed to recognize with sureties to keep the peace, and for want of sureties was duly committed to Jail. Sunday rowdies can be provided for in the way of lodging and board, by making the right kind of application to Justices WHITE, PARKS and ORIEL, of this town, or SMITH, of SPRING LAKE.
