Police affairs.

--City matters of a police nature have been rather quiescent than other wise since the sudden and inexplicable butchery perpetrated a few nights ago on upper 17th street, which seems to have exhausted the stock of horrors for some times to come. The Mayor held no court on Friday last — fast day. On Saturday Dick Duff, Dan Broderick and Pat O'Neal were examined and sent on to the Alderman's Hustings Court for the murder of Patrich Kelly and Wm. Downes. Francis Antoni. the party arrested under the name of ‘"Frank,"’ was discharged from complicity in the affair. The female witnesses, being mostly persons of abandoned character, were committed to appear, as they could not give security for so doing when wanted.

Wm. H. Langford was discharged from the charge of ‘"beating his wife."’

Sam Listy was dismissed from the charge of threatening violence to Mary Davis.

The case of Hugh Bigely, for stealing a horse from Wm. Harris, valued at $260, was continued until the 27th inst.

John Dolay, for assaulting H. H. Hutchinson, being unable to give bail, was sent to jail.

Ann Edwards, charged with keeping a house of ill fame, was committed in default of surety for her good behavior.

John Daley, arrested for breaking down the door of Mike Kearney's house, was sent to Gen. Winder, being a soldier.
