Miscellaneous cases.

--The law requires the closing of bar-rooms at 10 o'clock at night, but in some cases individual preferences condemn the practice. It was thus with Edward Gentry and John Griffiths, who became thirsty on Saturday might at a late hour, and made a demonstration upon the bar-room of Wm. Heuser, near the theatre, breaking one of the windows thereof. The Recorder deemed the offence a misdemeanor, and held the parties to answer an indictment.

D. M. Allen, Wm. Jones, Patrick Lynch Charles P. Backler, Alexander Killroy, and Levit Riley, supposed to be soldiers, were arraigned before the Recorder yesterday for drinking more liquor than the law allows, and were severally turned over to the custody of army officers. Larkin Curtis a discharged soldier, was up for a similar offence, and dismissed on condition of his leaving town forthwith.

John T. Hughes, charged with beating his wife, was committed in default of security for his appearance before the Grand Jury to answer an indictment. The circumstances of this case were of a peculiarly painful character. A similar charge against John Moore was continued until to- day.

One or two fines were imposed for violations of city ordinances.
