Schueler vs Freyling 1857

Below is a newspaper clipping from Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana, as public notice of a case between John Schueler and Jacob Freyling in 1857. I believe Jacob was the brother of Stephen Freyling (see the Will of Stephen Freyling, from 9 Aug 2012).
Transcription:
John Schueler vs Jacob Freyling} Attachment.
Before Wm Kempf, Justice of the Peace, of Vanderburgh County, Indiana.

Notice is hereby given that on the affidavit of John Schueler, a writ of attachment has been issued against the said Jacob Freyling's good and chattels, on the 3rd day of January 1857; and that the same will stand for trial on the 22d day of January 1857, at 9 o'clock in the forenoon.
Will. Kempf, J.P.

Connections
I don't know the outcome of the case. 1857 was a big year for Schueler. In Hoosier Beer, it shows that John Schueler opened Union Brewery in Evansville in 1857 (see http://www.hoosierbeerstory.com/Add-Timeline.html). The brewery closed by 1866. I am not certain of the connection between Schueler and Freyling, but perhaps the Freyling was delivering beer for Schueler.

1860 US Census
In the 1860 Census in Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana, Jacob Freyling and his wife Elizabeth [Weichel] appear in Pigeon Township. His profession is listed as driver, and his place of birth was listed as "E Hessia". Jacob was 37 in 1860, putting his birth date as about 1823.
Freyling appears in Evansville City Directories in 1863 & 1865 (spelled as Jacob Freiling). From other sources, it looks like he died in Evansville on 16 November 1878.
