Court proceedings. Fiscal vs. Jan Evertsen Bout et al., for going on board the Love without permission ; fined. Isaac Allerton vs. Edward Celes, action of debt ; judgment for plaintiff. Barent Dircksen vs. Martin Cael, slander ; defendant denies the charge. Fiscal vs. Martin Cael, for selling goods on board the ship Love ; it appears that the crew of this vessel had sold several articles which they had brought over, and the court held the captain responsible for their acts and condemned him to pay a fine of one month's freight ($516), one-half to the company, one-fourth towards building a new church, and the remainder to the fiscal.
