Mayor's Court.

--A number of cases of a comparatively unimportant character were disposed of by the Mayor on yesterday, a list of which we append:

James Clarke, arrested on suspicion of being one of the parties who knocked down and robbed Mr. F. J. Gardner, was arraingned for examination. Mr. Gardner did not identify him as one of the men who attacked him, and he was let off on that charge. Information having been given to the Mayor that Clarke had assisted to relieve Louis Antone of $75, an offence in whose commission he was aided by Fontaine Rowe, the witness was introduced and positively identiliod Clarke as Rowe's companion. The latter has been in the State's prison for several months, having been sent up for three years for his participation in the offence. The new case against Clarke was continued, and he remanded to jail.

John J. Allbone, arraigned for drawing a pistol on some unknown person in the street, proved that the arm was not loaded; that he was ‘"sky-larking"’ and corned at the time. Discharged with an admonition.

Jas. J. Macklin, arrested for threats to set fire to Franklin Hall, was discharged, proving to have been drunk at the time, and generally a trifling fellow. He pretended on the night of his arrest to have belonged to the New Market Club in Baltimore, when the truth was he belonged to Clarksville, Va., and had never seen the Monumental city in his life.

Coley, slave of P. H. Aylett, hired to Washington King, was ordered 15 lashes for stoning the residence of Adolphus Tyree, and breaking thirty-two window panes attached thereto.

Cyrus Winston, slave of John Thacker, was remanded for trial before the Hustings Court, for feloniously cutting Wm. Burnett's hand, in the Second Market, while the latter had him in custody for stealing a piece of meat from John Jaiser. He was ordered 25 lashes for the latter offence.
