From the Richmond Whig, 7/9/1861

BAD BOYS. - The attention of the police is called to the vicinity of Jackson and 5th streets, near the German Church, where may be seen, any afternoon an assemblage of evil disposed boys, who seem to take delight in throwing stones, using indecent language, and in other ways annoying the neighborhood. Should this notice fail to put a stop to the nuisance complained of, we learn that other means will be resorted to, which will doubtless prove effectual.
