holds the strongest hand, espectally since legal acumen is backed by a determination to pursue it through isbyrinths which would terribly mistify a player of ordinary comprehension. In one case in the Hustings Court, heretofore alluded to, John A. Worsham has got out a second writ against officer Wm. N. Kelly for trespass, laying his damages this time at $1,000--the first writ specifying $5,000. The mandamus case, in the Cirenit Court, was to have come up yesterday, but was continued until to day at the instance of the Mayor. In the same Court, Wm. Burns petitions for a writ of prohibition to restrain and inhibit the Mayor from holding coguizance over the subject matter of $1,100, and a lot of gaming implements seized at his house, in regard to which a decree of confiscation has already been pronounced. Upon this petition a rule was yesterday awarded, returnable to-day, summoning the Mayor to show cause why the prohibition should not be granted. Thus stands the case at present.
