Mayor's Court.

--O. A. Neland and Matthew Doody, Louisiana soldiers, were arraigned yesterday for fighting in the street, but having become amicably disposed towards each other, the Mayor discharged them from custody.

Henry Deplatt, one of the guard who came down from Manassas with the prisoners on Thursday, drank more than he could stand up under during the day, and was himself made a captive. The Mayor discharged him with a hint that he had better hurry back to his regiment.

Michael Purcell was fined $1 for driving across a sidewalk in the prosecution of the business of hauling sand.

Robert, slave of John P. Ballard, was punished with 39 stripes for making an assault upon Wm. P. Tennant, a white man Thos and Henry, two more of Mr. Ballard's servants, were duly punished for mixing in with an unlawful assembly.

David, slave of J. J. Robinson, was acquitted of the trivial charge of accusing a watchman of robbing him of a dollar. The Mayor remarked that if all the slanderous remarks about the police department were made the subject of investigation, he would have his hands full of such business all the time. Several other negroes were punished for various offences.
