Mayor's Court. --The cases brought to the notice of his Honor yesterday morning, were speedily disposed of, as follows: Wm. Curtis, for assaulting and beating John Nowlan, was committed in default of security to keep the peace. John Johnson, free negro, for trespassing on the Medical College premises, was sentenced to twenty-five. John Donahoe and Martin Roach, arrested for assaulting Martin Harvey, and Martin Harvey, arrested for stealing a pair of pantaloons and a cotton handkerchief from Martin Roach, were all discharged. John Nowlan, charged with threatening to beat Jackson Dunn, was also set at liberty. Snow.--Our inhabitants were surprised yesterday morning on finding the ground covered with snow, about seven inches in depth, and more falling.

The earth, however, being saturated with previous rain, soon absorbed the snow, and the mud and slush became intolerable. The so
exciting that ever occurred. It has resulted in the election of one of the State Rights candidates, Mr. Randolph--and two of the so-called Union ticket: Messrs, Johnson and Macfarland. But it was seriously designed at one time to have nominated Mr. Macfarland upon the State- Rights ticket; and, in the speeches last night, in acknowledgement of the honor conferred upon them both, Messrs. Johnson and Macfarland made decidedly Virginian, State-Rights, and anticoercion speeches. The whole State-Rights ticket would have been elected but for the influence, 1st, of the cry of secession; 2nd, of the alarm excited among the foreigners relative to their oath ofted the resolutions adopted by the great meeting in Richmond last month. They place Virginia on the proper ground, and there we now regard Messrs. Macfarland and Johnson as now standing. The principal event of the day will be readily recognized by all, and will give great satisfaction here and in all quarters of the country.
