Alexander  Pleaded  Not  uilty  But
He  Allowed  the  Court to Find  Him
Guilty -- Fine  and  Costs  $14.50.
          Jacob Alexander,  who was arrested a few days ago on the charge of selling a horse to  Monroe Goodrich,  which was afflicted was before  Squire James Webb  this morning.  He entered a plea of not guilty, but permitted the court to find him guilty of the charge and he paid a fine and costs to the amount of $14.50.
          The trade was made several months ago, Goodrich discovering afterwards, that the horse had an affliction, of which he was not told at the time.  Goodrich paid $100 to Alexander for the horse and he has since sold it for the same amount.
          The case has been in court before and, it is rumored that it is a case of personal feeling between  Prosecutor Hack  and Alexander, it being understood that Alexander, although a Democrat, is not a Hack man.
