Mayor's Court, yesterday.

--William Blankinship, charged with maliciously shooting and killing George Crowe, in Sidney, was examined by the Mayor and sent to be examined before the Husting Court. Jim, slave of Mrs. Munday, charged with stealing five dollars from Wm. K. Sledd, at the New Market, having confessed the offence was ordered 25 stripes with a cow-skin. The hearing of Patrick Jacobs, charged with stealing a silver watch worth $29 from Davis H. Strom, was continued on account of the absence of a material witness. Mary Driscoll, summoned up for keeping a disorderly house on Cary, between 17th and 18th streets, did not respond when her name was called. The police stated that on Wednesday night, after eleven o'clock, parties came out of the door of Mrs. Driscoll's house and fired pistols in the street. The case was continued. Wm. McCaw, proprietor of a private boarding-house, was fined $5 for allowing some person to fire off pistols from the door of his residence. Defendant said he had several New Orleans men boarding with him, and he could not prevent what they did. This excuse did not avail.
