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 air was perfectly still, and the trees were festooned most beautifully with snowy wreaths. The earth, however, being saturated with previous rain, soon absorbed the snow, and the mud and slush became intolerable. The sovereigns about the polls never had such a time before.

The Curtis Peck.--This steamer did not start on her usual trip for Norfolk yesterday morning. Capt. Freeman informed us that the high water prevented the discharge of Saturday's freight, and the prospect of an increase of the freshet rendered it inexpedient to start.
