Police Court.

--Yesterday, August Fish, a soldier, charged with stealing $500 from the stocking of Zelta Glenman, a nymph, residing at the sinful abode of Ella Johnson, in the rear of the Exchange, was arraigned, the money reproduced, the matter confessed, but not as an intentional theft, and the prisoner sent on for trial. The young man's apology was, that he wanted the stocking for the fun of the thing, and accidentally finding the money in it, took it to camp, where it was found in his tent.--Pat Crawley, charged with brandishing a knife in the streets, was sent to the Provost Marshal.--Geo. Foy was required to give $150 security to keep his wife out of a muse with Mrs. Mary F. Brady, and the latter was directed to appear this morning, to answer a complaint from Mrs. Foy.--Several nuisance cases were appropriately disposed of by the parties being fined.
