MIKE BRANNIGAN DISCHARGED - In the Court of Sessions yesterday morning J.W.
COFFROTH, one of the counsel for the State in the case of The People vs.
BRANNIGAN, stated that the principal witness in the case, Edith MITCHELL,
was at Victoria, and would not return to California to testify on the trial
of the cause. He was therefore willing, with the consent of the District
Attorney, that a nolle prosequi should be entered and the defendant
discharged. There being no objection to the proposition, the order was
entered, and Mike was released form the annoyance and perplexity of a second
trial.

THE WRONG CAN - A few days ago, at one of our city hotels, the cook was
somewhat surprised, on resorting to the milk can just left by the milkman,
to find that it contained nothing but pure water. On demanding an
explanation of the milkman, on his next return, he frankly acknowledged
that, instead of bringing in a can of milk properly diluted with water, he
had by mistake left that which contained the diluting substance itself. He
had designed, as was his custom, to distribute the water pro rata among his
customers. The unreasonable landlord gave full credence to the explanation,
but at once changed milkmen.

INSANE - A man named Michael CODY was yesterday arrested by officer CHILDS
and taken to the station house on suspicion of insanity. He was removed
during the afternoon to the County Hospital. Bertha ALVERDE, who was on
Monday taken to the station house on account of insanity and released was
again taken in charge by officer CHILDS. She was subsequently visited by the
Examining Committee, and pronounced insane. She will probably be taken to
Stockton to-day.

THE CHAIN GANG - The chain gang, under the supervision of Overseers DREMAN
and LONG, was engaged yesterday in repairing the J street bridge and in
reconstructing the road formerly built across the slough, a short distance
below the bridge.
