Miscellaneous Cases.

--Philip Vermilery, an ‘"invalid"’ soldier, from the Potomac army, was before the Mayor yesterday for the common sin of intemperance, but was discharged with the understanding that he would go back to his regiment without delay.--Richard Wreun, another soldier, up for a like offence, was let off on the same conditions.--Frances Jackson, a manumitted slave, from the estate of Dr. Alexander Mason, deceased, was arraigned to answer a charge of stealing clothing, valued at $25, from John N. Van Lew. There being some peculiar circumstances connected with the case, it was continued for a future hearing. --Beverly, a slave, arrested by Watchman Boze on suspicion of stealing, from Duke & Hutcheson, a bag of sugar, a jug of whiskey, and a roll of bank-notes and shinplasters, was punished with the usual number of stripes. Beverly afterwards confessed the robbery to his employer.--Lewis Sampson, free negro, was fined ten dollars for exacting more than the legal rate from a passenger for riding in his hack.
