Mayor's Court. --The Mayor's docket yesterday morning was large; but the cases embraced in it were fairly examined and promptly disposed of. We present the following summary: Lucy and Ann Tonget, were examined on the charge of stealing from Branch Jackson, slave of Thomas Bass, one trunk, containing $450 in money, five pairs of pants, six shirts, one pair or boots, two vests, and one hat, found guilty, and sent on to the Hustings Court to be further examined. A negro man, named James Butler, was remanded to the Hustings Court, on the charge of stealing from John W. Dorsey sundry articles of wearing apparel and jewelry, valued at $800, and resisting the officers who made his arrest. The charge preferred against Peter, slave of N. M. Lee, and William, slave of N. M. Norfleet, of stealing two boxes of tobacco and one bag of meal, valued at $400, from N. M. Lee, was examined into, and the evidence sustaining the accusation, they were remanded for trial before the Husti
arged. Henry, slave of James Bagby, was ordered to receive a whipping for stealing a carpet bag, containing wearing apparel, the property of Roy Jones. Elizabeth Touget, a free woman, was charged with threatening to assault and beat Branch Jackson, a slave. The case was plainly proven, and the accused committed to jail in default of security for her good behavior. Branch Jackson, a slave, appeared to answer the charge of stealing a lot of clothing from Mary A. Brown. No proof ofBranch Jackson, a slave, appeared to answer the charge of stealing a lot of clothing from Mary A. Brown. No proof of his guilt was adduced, and the Mayor discharged him. Fines of twenty dollars each were entered against George W. Bates, John Miller, (two cases,) and William H. Eggleston, for keeping their drinking-houses open after 10 o'clock at night. A case was booked against Virginia Howard, a white woman, charged with annoying and disturbing the peace of Joseph M. Dominico. By consent of the complainant, however, the prosecution was dismissed.
