    • Henry Orismeyer was next called upon. The charge was assault and battery, it was alleged that (Gris.) had laid hands on his wife in "a violent, rude; and threatening mannor," and she had him arrested accordingly. "Well, Henry," said his Honor, "what do you say as to this? Are you guilty, or not guilty?" Gris. couldn't tell a lie, so he said he supposed he was guilty. His Honor made the fine quite light, only $8, but Gris., declared he wouldn't pay it ?no never! even if it was only 5 cents; he would go to jail first. So the Justice had to make out a commitment to tho county jail for 20 days, and Henry departed for Oswego in company with Drum the following
      morning. [16]
