Mayor's Court.

--The Mayor opened his court at 10 o'clock yesterday, and proceeded to dispose of quite a formidable docket, including several individuals charged with the common offence of drunkenness. The daily evidences presented of the inferior quality of whiskey now retailed in this market, ought to operate favorably for the temperance cause, but we regret to say that such is not the case. If seems that men will gratify their craving appetites, even though they are offered a mixture of alcohol, brimstone, gunpowder, and strychnine. There were also some cases of ordinance violations and one or two fights, all of which may be traced to the sale or use of strong drinks. A more minute detail of the proceedings would by no means edify the public, and we therefore take leave of the subject.
