Police Court.

--Justice Caskie presided yesterday, in the absence of the Mayor. Chastain Farrar was arrested for improperly using a horse belonging to Francis T. Scott, while on a frolic; but as there was no malicious or criminal intent, he was discharged from custody. Fanny Lockley, free woman of color, was punished for receiving a stolen ring, and ordered to return to her home in King and Queen forthwith. Jim Hobson, free negro, received an admonition for having fire-arms in his possession. A warrant against Tim Sullivan, for beating Mary Murphy, was dismissed on payment of costs. Patrick Cummings, charged with buying a lot of cabbage in the 1st Market and selling the same in the 2d Market, was fined $5. A confiscation of the edible plants was also ordered, and they were legally cabbaged by the city.
