James Slaven, a resident of Northside, was sent to the Albany penitentiary Tuesday for nine months, he being found guilty of being drunk and disorderly. Mrs. Kernan, his sister-in-law, preferred the charge, and claims that James is a dangerous man. When intoxicated, he is not only boisterous, but it subject to fits. When in the station house he was seized with one, and for a short time his life was dispaired of.
