Court Proceedings.

Mayor's Court, Friday, January 23.
--Betsy Liggan, a colored female, aged about 75 years, charged Betty Ford, another one of her own class, with stealing a five dollar Confederate note from her. A number of witnesses were examined, but neither they or the old woman could make out a case of eeny against the defendant, and she was discharged.

Peter Dayle, a small white boy, was next arraigned for stealing several pieces of plank from the Basin Bank, owned by the Confederate States. The evidence against the defendant was rather strong but being of very render years, he was discharged.
