Mayor's Court.

--Arthur F. Hopkins was carried before the Mayor yesterday for threatening to massacre Chas. C. Ellett, ‘"without any provocation,"’ and committed on failing to give security to keep the peace — Woodson Dunn, arraigned for stealing one bag of meal and a cap from the market cart of Chas. Bowers, was sent to jail.--Allen, slave of Richard Whitfield, was ordered 39 lashes for using seditious language, and to be detained until further orders.--Jim, slave of Isham Chewning, was sent on to the Hustings Court for final trial for the murder, on the 10th instant, at the Monticello House, on Main street, of Andrew, slave of Mrs Sally Gray, of Port Royal, Caroline county, Va. The murder, so far as the evidence showed, was a deliberate and unprovoked one.
