Mayor's Court.

--Jacob Miller, charged with assaulting and beating John McRoberts in his own domicil, was required to give security in the sum of $150 to keep the peace. Scarcely had this been disposed of, when an officer produced an old warrant against the same person for an assault upon Young Newby, and the load being more than he could carry, he was committed.

John Henry Cooke was arraigned upon a charge of assaulting and beating his wife, Mary Ann. Domestic discipline must be enforced in these times, when it is all important that peace should reign within our borders; but there is no excuse for resorting to blows, when a firm yet mild demeanor will accomplish the same purpose. Mr. Cooke was committed in default of surety for his good behavior.

Frank Winga and A. Drugget, charged with threatening to assault Hugo Joseph and Joseph A. Chaventnear, were required to give security to keep the peace, and we believe they complied with the terms.

The following fines were imposed for violations of the ordinance requiring bar-rooms to be kept closed on the Sabbath. John O'Neal $5; J. Hogan, $5; E. Francis, $5; Maurice Dennis, $20; and Henry Beekman, $5.

Wm. Lee was fined $2 for depositing ashes in a public alley.
