Mayor's Court.

--The list of delinquents, as usual on Monday, was quite formidable, and we append only the most prominent cases, omitting a number of tipsy warriors and straggling negroes.

Theo. Witzer — disorderly, turbulent, and drawing a sword upon people in the streets, gave security for his appearance to-day.

Charles E. Miller — threatening to knock Mrs. Clara Mayer's head off; security to keep the peace.

Timothy and John McMahon — assaulting Michael Marshall and resisting an officer; security to keep the peace.

John Dowland — receiving a silver watch, knowing it to have been stolen; continued to Wednesday.

Lewis Dunn, small boy, put his head up over the bar of justice, and the inquiry — what has Lewis done?--elicited a straightforward story from his youthful lips. He was charged with, but not convicted of, stealing a watch, and was released, of course.

Matthew, slave of Samuel M. Bailey, was ordered 39 for assaulting Dr. McCormick and son.

Wm. Hammon, charged with the larceny of ten bars of lead from the Government laboratory, gave bail for his appearance on Wednesday.

Henry, slave of Mrs. B. Peyton, and Ephraim, slave of Mrs. Harriet Hellum, were arraigned on a charge of stealing a trunk containing valuable articles to the amount of $100, from Dr. Peter H. Anderson, but the case was continued to Wednesday.

Thomas Bradford was fined $15 for keeping his bar-room open after 10 o'clock at night.
