Newport.

Discharged-- William Slavin, convicted under the nuisance act for the illegal sale of liquor, had his case reconsidered in the Justice Court yesterday, and the decision was reversed, it being shown that he ran a boat to and from the torpedo station on Goat Island, and in consequence, his house was necessarily a resort for sailors and others attached to or having business at the Station. This, it was thought, was sufficient to raise doubt in his favor, and he given the benefit of it and discharged from his recognizance.
