A “Riot” Case.
– Dr. Thomas M. Palmer, who stands charged with encountering a riot in the
streets of the city, was yesterday held to bail by Recorder Caskie in the sum of
$1,000 to answer an indictment for misdemeanor before Judge Meredith. The main
point of testimony against the Doctor is that he refused to depart when the
crowd was ordered by the Governor and the Mayor to disperse, and made use of
some language not altogether suitable to the occasion. He was a member of the
Convention which took Florida out of
the Union; has been in the service of the Confederacy from an early period of the
war and in many battles; and his loyalty is vouched for by the Secretary of the
Navy and by members of both branches of Congress. Gen. Geo.
W. Randolph and John H. Gilmer, Esq., are
