Infamous Crime. A correspondent of the Bangor Whig says that Richard
Grindle of Sedgwick, who for some years past has run a wood coaster between
that place and Rockland, has been committed to jail for vicious and inhuman
conduct toward his own daughter. Last summer, instead of hiring a cook for his
vessel, he took his oldest daughter, about 14 years of age to act in that capacity.
By severe pains and sad penalties he compelled her to submit to the most cruel
licentious treatment, both by himself and the men employed on board the vessel with
him. The girl at last disclosed the matter, and Grindle was arrested and brought
before a Justice of the Peace. He pleaded guilty and offered to go to jail alone or
directly to the State Prison at Thomaston, if it was wished. He was committed to
jail at Ellsworth to take his trial at the April term of Court.
