Mayor's Court. --His Honor had a budget of "odds and ends" before him on Saturday last, but no case of special importance was brought to light. We notice briefly what occurred: James Chandler, for being drunk and disorderly in the street, was held to bail. Judy, a slave, for using insolent and provoking language to a white person, was punished. Wm. Haines, charged with stealing a pair of pants from Edward Barr, is to be heard hereafter. Emma, slave to Miss A. T. Hughes, charged with stealing a lot of trinkets, and Susan Hill and Mary Haines, for receiving the same, knowing them to be stolen, were ordered to be punished. John West, a free boy, for stealing $60 in money from M. Myer, was ordered ten lashes. From this decision his counsel took an appeal to the Hustings Court. William Krack alias Jim Krack, charged with stealing a bolt of cotton cloth from E. Goldsmith, and a pair of pants from David Barr, will be heard for the offence hereafter.
