Hustings Court.

--The regular monthly term of this Court commenced yesterday, senior Alderman Sanxay presiding. The Court was occupied most of the day in hearing applications for and granting ordinary licenses. A good deal of miscellaneous business, such as registering free negroes, &c., was also done.--Two prisoners charged with felony were brought up by the jailor, but no testimony was heard in either case. James E. Carter, charged with forgery, will have a hearing to-day or to-morrow. Wm. T. Cummings, charged with bigamy, in marrying Josephina Donnelly in this city, having previously espoused Sarah E. Holdsworth in Washington, D. C., was greeted, on his appearance, by both of his batter halves. The first Mrs. Cummings continued to sob during the time the --gay deceiver" remained in Court. His case will be called to-day.
