Mayor's Court, Saturday.

--The court-room was crowded Saturday morning. The rows of the preceding afternoon and night had their representatives in abundance. The Court sat from nine till at least one o'clock. His Honor delivered some sound lectures to the spectators and parties present, declaring his determined purpose to maintain the majesty of the law and the dignity of his old Commonwealth. After all, however, it was almost impossible to get at the truth in regard to the riots; and not easy to identify any given individual as present taking part therein.

John Hampton was committed to jail as a vagrant.

Edward Sullivan, for stealing two watches from Adam, a slave, was remanded to prison.

Mickleberry Yarbrough was sent to jail for being drunk and lying on a sidewalk.

George Black was sent on for examination on the charge of stealing a watch valued at $150 from James Broderick.

Joseph Reller, for stealing six dollars from John O'Brien, was recommitted.

John Murphy, John Burns, Wm. Flinn, David Jones, Charles Flannagan, and Alfred Murray, charged with drunkenness and creating disorder, were discharged on the application of their officers.

Michael Finney, Michael O'Regan, and a number of other soldiers were sent to jail, to be examined further this morning.

Thomas G. Ellington, who professed great penitence, and said he had been in the army of the Northwest, was discharged upon his promising future good conduct.

George W. Johnson was committed to jail for being drunk and disorderly in the streets.

Wm. Forrester was fined $15, and required to give surety for his future good behavior, for selling ardent spirits to be drunk at his house where sold, without first having obtained a license to do so.

Wm. McDonald, who appeared to have assisted the officers rather than obstructed them in the suppression of the riot of Friday, on 17th street, was discharged.

Thompson and Sears were committed for being drunk and disorderly.

Napoleon B. Devinney and a Mr. Crew, were brought up because it is not safe to allow them to go at large, they being not of sound mind. His Honor will dispose of them humanely.

Zachariah Burnett, charged with assaulting and beating some unknown person, was discharged.
