SHOOTING at ROBINSON'S FERRY -- On Monday afternoon, at Robinson's
Ferry, a man named Bartolo ORTEGO shot another named Pedro SELINO in
the chest, causing such a wound as will almost certainly result in
death. The circumstances of the case are as follows:
Some months ago ORTEGO killed a Chilean, for which act a warrant was
issued for his arrest; but he carefully and skillfully eluded
capture. On Monday SELINO and others finding out that ORTEGO was in a
house at Robinson's Ferry, went to Justice Tait, of Angels, and
received authority to arrest him. On the way from Angels down,
SELINO's companion lost a spur. He rode back to find it, while SELINO
went on, and entered the house where ORTEGO, the murderer was alone.
As soon as ORTEGO saw SELINO, guessing his purpose, he drew and
fired, with the effect above noted. The murderer then mounted
SELINO's horse and escaped in the direction of Copperopolis and Jenny Lind.

[spelled 2 ways] and his wife, it appears, did not live happily
together in their marital relations, and had separated by mutual
consent. He sent word to his "cara sposa" that he wished to see her,
and when she appeared, he gave her a harder thrashing than the law
allows. Jacob was found guilty of the offense, and was requested by

POLICE COURT --
-John CRANE sent an order for some groceries to a store, which
groceries James TULLY was kind enough to take home to Mr. CRANE, but
with this kind act, committed the indiscretion to express a feeling
of contempt for the manner in which the order was written. His
opinions on this point were not very pleasing to the author, who
ordered him, the said TULLY, from his premises. The affair terminated
by putting one of Mr. CRANE's optics in mourning, who thereupon
entered a complaint for assault and batter. James plead guilty, and
his Honor sentenced him to pay a fine of $12 for the offense.

-To Mr. ANTONIO for pitching into one of Uncle Samuel's soldiers, the
same judgment was awarded.
AN INSANE BARON -- A German Baron was brought up in the steamer of
yesterday morning, and taken to the Insane Asylum. He has been an
artillery officer in the Prussian service and named Baron Ewald Carl
Stanislaus VON FRANKENBERG. He is of the impression that there are
certain parties who are constantly aspersing his character, and
although funds has been deposited with the Prussian Consul to pay his
passage home, yet he will not leave willingly until he clears up the
mystery of these unknown defamers.
ROBBED -- A few days since a man named H.M. VAN NAMEE was robbed near
Cave City of the sum of $6. The highwayman expected a larger booty,
as VAN NAMEE had just disposed of a load of fruit -- on credit.
