Mayor's Court, Saturday. --A number of cases were disposed of by the Mayor on Saturday, of which the following is an enumeration; Anderson Jackson, free, living in the city with Powhatan papers, ordered 20 lashes and put to work on the city fortifications. Same judgment in regard to Carter Smith, a Cumberland darkey. Edward Cooper, free, from New Orleans no papers and an unlawful weapon, discharged, (a soldier servant) Joseph O'Neal, Frank Ward, Patrick Clarke, James Hickory and Thos. H. Hughes, drunken soldiers, detained in the watch-house for encumbering the streets, discharged with orders to repair to their respective camps. Jas. Wells, drunk, lying on the sidewalk, committed in default of surety. Mary Walker and Mary E. Wilson, charged with keeping a disorderly house, acquitted. Myer Myers, charged with stabbing James W. Camp and James P. Harrison, committed for further examination. Ellen Birney, charged with beating Mary Tinsley, acquitted, Wm. Kearney, drunk and inter
Democrat, of the 16th, has the following news from the Southwest, fully confirming our previous reports of the movements of the Arkansas troops: Capt. Conrad's command, which had been left at Neosho, report that on the 5th of July they were surrounded by 1,500 Arkansas troops, and were given fifteen minutes time to surrender. Before the time expired the enemy's force was increased to 3,000. Capt. Conrad then surrendered his command. Ben McCullough was present. Gen. Price and Gov. Jackson then demanded that their men and arms be delivered to the Missouri troops. The Arkansas officers refused this demand. Afterwards Capt. Emmett McDonald passed among them and inquired if they were not St. Louis boys. They replied they were. The Captain then treated a number of them to lager beer. They were then sent off, after taking the obligation not to bear arms against the Southern Confederacy, under the escort of Arkansas troops, as it was understood that the Missourians intended
From Missouri.the Unreliability of intelligence from that State. Louisville, July 20. --Dispatches from St. Louis and other points in Missouri, are utterly useless — private letters equally so. The indications are plain that the entire State is in a blaze, and nothing is allowed to be published or go through the mail tending to encourage the patriots. Nothing but items stating that McCulloch has quarreled with Gen. Jackson, and gone home, the impossible annihilation of Secession camps in districts where all are Secessionists, and where no St. Louis Dutch or Illinois soldiers have arrived, are allowed to be published.
Georgia Treasury notes. --This is the title bestowed upon the militia and civil officers called out by Gov. Brown, now in camp Georgia, near this city. The reason given for the title is, that as the Georgia reserves, under Maj. Gen. Cobb and Brig. Gens. Gartrell and Jackson, were called the "New Issue." and they are under the immediate command of Gov. Brown and Gen. Wayne, they ought to be styled the Georgia Treasury Notes, as it is well known that Georgia Treasury notes are above par. We visited Camp Georgia yesterday evening, and found over 2,000 of the finest looking men we have ever seen. Among them are several Captains of the 48th Georgia. Colonel R. J. Wilson, of the Richmond county militia, went out as Captain of the Georgia Tigers, and lost his left arm in Virginia. He is now at Camp Georgia, prepared, with his right, to avenge the loss of his left arm. We saw many who have "done the country some service." on the tented field, and who are minus a leg or arm, and, unfi
Mayor's Court. --The following cases occupied the attention of the Mayor yesterday: Patrick Foley, a white boy, and Anderson Jackson, free negro, were arraigned on the charge of stealing eighty-four heads of cabbage from Augustus P. Crenshaw. On Saturday night two men in a small boat rowed up to the side of the canal running along Mr. Crenshaw's cabbage patch, about two miles from the city, and getting out proceeded to pull up and cut off some eighty odd, which were placed in the boat and taken in the direction of this city. A negro fellow who was watching followed on behind and traced them to the house of Maria Wade, a short distance from the canal bank and the Petersburg depot. This information was given to officer Kelly, who searched Mrs. Wade's house Tuesday, where he found hid away under the floor about forty cabbages, and the prisoners at the bar, in one of the rooms of the building. Another witness testified to having loaned the accused his boat on the night of t
