Mayor's Court. --The following cases were booked for the Mayor's consideration yesterday: Frank Morris, alias Frank Hermann, suspected of the murder and robbery of Michael Rourke a few weeks since. On the night of Rourke's murder, the prisoner attended the ball at Magnolia Hall, on Tenth street, at which the murdered man was during the fore part of the night. Some nights afterwards another ball was given at the same place, when the police, having been authorized to do so, made a raid upon it and arrested several parties, both male and female, as participants in riotous and disorderly festivities, along with whom was Hermann. Subsequently, before the accused was brought in the presence of the Mayor, he deposited the watch, which has been recognized as the property of Rourke, with a female acquaintance of his. Hermann was remanded back to jail, without examining any witnesses, yesterday morning and his case set for the 5th of January. The same disposition was made of the ca

Frank Morris, alias Herman, suspected of murdering and robbing Michael Rourke, and Elizabeth Dawson, charged with having and receiving a silver watch, valued at one thousand dollars, the property of said Rourke, which was stolen from him on the night he received his mortal wound, were, in accordance with a previous postponement of the case, again up for a hearing; but, owing to the absence of witnesses, the matter was further continued till the 14th. Morris was committed to jail, but Miss Dawson was granted bail for her appearance. James E. Robertson, remanded on Wednesday for indictment on the charge of stealing a piece of cloth from Beers & Spillman, was again before His Honor to answer the offence of stealing cloth in a similar manner fr
rties supposed to be involved in the transaction, the further prosecution of the matter was postponed till to-day. Nathan, slave of Madison Macon, charged with stealing a trunk containing a quantity of clothing, the property of Captain T. M. Semmes, was ordered to be whipped. A charge against James Smith, of assaulting and beating his wife, was dismissed, it having been shown that the disturbance was caused by Mrs. Smith, who was somewhat under the influence of liquor. The continued case of Frank Morris, alias Frank Herman, charged with the murder and robbery of Michael Rouke, was called up; but, from the same cause, which heretofore necessitated its postponement, the prisoner was recommitted to prison for his appearance to answer on the 23d instant. Elizabeth Dawson, charged with receiving a silver watch, the property of Michael Bouke, deceased, knowing that it was stolen from Rouke on the night of his murder, was bailed to answer that offence on the 23d instant.

The accused was remanded for examination before the Hustings Court. Elizabeth Dawson, charged with receiving a silver watch from Frank Morris, alias Hermann, the property of Michael Rourke, she well knowing that it was stolen, was discharged, she having established her innocence of any such knowledge.
