Mayor's Court, yesterday.

--Thomas Bradford was in court to assert his property in several bales of bay, eight barrels of flour, two tierces of rice, three barrels of vinegar, several cords of wood, several bags of salt, oats, &c., which lay on the floor of the court-room. It appears that Bradford had purchased the aforesaid articles from persons authorized to sell them, it being the custom of our army, as it is of all others we ever read of, to allow the officers to sell their rations, if they choose to do so. The articles had been taken under authority of a search-warrant.

Mary Miller, charged with assaulting and beating Elizabeth Hirsch, gave bail in $100 for her future good behavior.

John Tiernay was fined $15 for keeping his house, where ardent spirits are usually sold, open on Sunday last.

Henry Miller was fined $10 for a like offence.

Two cases against Mary Mull--one for selling ardent spirits without a license, and the other for keeping her house open last Sunday--were continued till to-day.

C. Y. Morriss, charged with obstructing the streets with fifty hhds. of sugar. Case continued till 26th.

Opie Staite, charged with forging a clerk's certificate of allowance, was remanded for examination by the Hustings Court, before which the witnesses were recognized to appear on the second Monday in October.

Edward Barry, charged with robbing Dr. T. H. Edwards of $10 in bank notes, was sent on to a called court to be held next Monday.

Thomas, a slave, whipped for bad conduct. John, a slave, case continued till to-day. --Jeremiah Dwyer, arrested as a person of evil name and fame. Case continued.

Michael Kearney's case was also continued. He is charged with unlawfully gaming with a negro.
