Obs. A woman who, in consequence of her boisterous, disorderly and quarrelsome tongue, is a public nuisance to the neighborhood.

Such a woman may be indicted, and on conviction, punished. At common law, the punishment was by being placed in a certain engine of correction called the trebucket or cocking stool.

This punishment was abolished in Pennsylvania where the offence is now punished by fine and imprisonment.
