Mayor's Court.

--Recorder Caskie presiding.--The fire case called was that of John Hughes, charged with making a violent assault upon his wife, but the latter failed to appear in consequence of the death of a child and the investigation was postponed.

John Moore, charged with beating his wife Bridget on sundry occasions, desired a further continuance of his case to procure testimony on his behalf, and the request was granted accordingly.

Willie Dodson; a fatherless boy, arrested or breaking a window of the Jewish Synagogue with a rook, was liberated with an admonition as to the consequences of a second offence.

Harwood Johnson and Thomas McMillen, charged with drunkenness, were transferred to the care of an army officer, who will give him a chance to distinguish themselves in active service.

An old offender named Wm. Conly, whose copious libations have proved the blight of his existence, was committed to jail in default of security to keep the peace.

A fine of $10 was imposed upon John O' Brien for keeping his barroom open after 10 o'clock on the night of October 30th.
